Creative Cuts and More!

This is my very first project as a design team member for Creative Cuts and More. CC&M is a die cut company. You go to the site, and choose from tons of dies, then decide what material you want it cut from. They also do custom cutting. You can send them your paper, and they will cut it for you. They carry LOTS of Bazzill, and these beautiful Stardream Metallics CS, like I used here. This is a DT sketch challenge card. I asked them to cut the lovely antique label in Aquamarine Stardream. I LOVE this label, and think I'm going to have it cut in about a million different colors! The flower was originally Coral, but I changed my mind about the color, so I dipped it into my VM pad and embossed it in silver-so no worry, no waste!

Stamps: Flourishes, Cake Decorating 101
Paper: ALL from CC&M, Aquamarine, Rose Quartz & Onyx Stardream
Ink: VM
Goodies: SU! detail silver EP, bling, lace, pop dots

This card is a great interpretation of the sketch. Love the metallic flowers!

What a cool idea ... I have some vintage soap labels, and Veronica collects vintage wine labels -- this way we can USE them without just color copying them ... this is gorgeous. you'se a genius, you is! I'm so glad you're willing to share your cool discoveries/tips.

What a great card and thanks for the link to this great company...I'll have to look through it when I have a little more time!

Also wanted to thank you for your wonderful comments you left on my blog about my grandfather's passin. It meant a lot to me.

Carla- what a great card- I love gray/ black and pink and I love how you turned the label. I didn't even recognize it as a label until you mentioned it- I love altering design elements like that.
