Creative Cuts and More Birthday Blog Hop!!!


Hello, and welcome to the Creative Cuts and More Birthday Blog Hop!! If you would like to start at the beginning, please go to Diecut Diva, which is where all the fun begins!! We are celebrating the release of our two brand new birthday card kits, and you can win one! Make sure you start at the beginning to learn how! Plus, all our hoppers are receiving a coupon code today, here it is: birthdaydt0915 Use it for a 15% discount on your next order!

You can find all the die cuts I've used today at the Creative Cuts & More website. At CC&M, you can choose from hundreds of dies and papers, and they will cut them for you! No need to buy expensive dies, or fiddle with a machine, just order what you like, and it arrives on your doorstep! They will even custom cut YOUR paper if that's what you want!!

For this birthday tag, I used two dies, the tag is the Tag #2 Large, which I had cut from Bazzill Bling Black Tie Diamond Cardstock-one of my very favorites!! It has a beautiful soft shimmer I just find irresitable. I love this Antique Label die. I think the size and shape is so perfect.

The beautiful birthday cake stamp was drawn by my friend Nancy for Cornish Heritage Farms' Shady Tree Studio line. I stamped it onto the label with VersaFine Onyx and embossed it in Holographic. I colored it with SU! pastels and E-Z Chalk Enhancer, then added Aqua, Crystal & purple Stickles.

This is the French Fry box, isn't it fun?? I wrapped it with some Prima paper, added a metal rimmed tag, a gorgeous butterfly die cut and a Heidi Swapp flower. I do want to mention that I always use CC&M's Killer Red Tacky Tape, it's indispensable! The stamps I used for this project are all Verve sets, Just For You and Kindred Spirits, both from the June release.

I hope you have enjoyed these birthday projects-just wait until you see what Jen has in store for you! You are gonna LOVE it! Go see JEN!!
