30 Days of Diemond Dies Project #2

          Happy Thursday Everyone! I am back today to share my second 30 Days of Diemond Dies Guest Design Team Project with you! Before we get to my project though I wanted to remind you about the 30 Days of Diemond Dies. During the 30 Days of Diemond Dies myself along with many other Design Team members and Guest Designers will be showcasing projects featuring products from Diemond Dies. Diemond Dies will be having giveaways as well as discounts when you shop their online store. So when you're finished viewing my project be sure you head over to the Diemond Dies Facebook page (click here to go directly to Diemond Dies Facebook or use link below), once there like and comment on each of the 30 Days of Diemond Dies daily posts, that way you will be entered into all the fabulous giveaway drawings! 
          In addition to the amazing giveaways being held on the Diemond Dies Facebook page, Dee (the owner of Diemond Dies) has graciously passed along a discount code for you to receive 20% off and free worldwide shipping on orders of $20 or more when you shop at The discount code you will need to use when making your purchase is ddcc 
          Plus I too will be having a giveaway right here on my blog. Dee's generosity made me want to share in her kindness too so I will be passing along some of the Diemond Dies products that I feature in my projects plus some other special goodies. To enter my giveaway you will need to leave a comment on all 3 of my 30 Days of Diemond Dies blog posts and also go like my Facebook page (the link is provided below or you can just click here to be taken directly to my Facebook page).
          The dates for my 3 project posts are as follows: August 6th, August 17th, and August 28th. Since this is 30 Days of Diemond Dies I will not be announcing a winner until September 11th that way everyone will have enough time to enter all 3 blog posts. (P.S. - I will be verifying you've met all my giveaway instructions prior to the drawing so be sure you follow my instructions in order to be entered).
          All righty then, since we have all the details explained, lets get onto today's project. 
          For today's project I made this super cute card. My card base is an A2 card which measures 4.25" x 5.5". To get this measurement simply cut a piece of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in half (this will actually give you two A2 card bases). Score the cardstock at 4.25" then fold at the scoreline. I used Recollections Black Cardstock for my base. I then used the More Stitched Rectangular Dies and Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More from My Creative Time to cut White Georgia Pacific Cardstock as well as Recollections Orange Cardstock to add layers and dimension to my card. I wanted the orange cardstock layer to look like a piece of cheese so in order to do that I used the More Stitched Circle Dies from My Creative Time to cut circles as well as half circles into the cardstock. I hand cut a triangle from the orange cardstock then used two different sized hole punches to make it look like cheese (this is the cheese on the fork). For the "fork" I used the Diemond Dies Garden Tools Die Set to cut a piece of aluminum foil. I then cut the film strip using the Diemond Dies Filmstrip die. I cut that from the same Recollections Black Cardstock. Those adorable little mice came from a Mama Elephant stamp set called Tandem Ride. I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then colored them with Copic color RV32, R81 (inside ears) and Spectrum Noir alchohol markers colors IG2, IG4, IG6 (body). Lastly I added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to make them cuties sparkle. Oh, the sentiment "Say Cheese" was stamped using an alphabet stamp set and I also used some Distress Inks to certain parts of the cardstock. To adhere the entire card together I used a combination of glues and double sided tapes.
          Well that wraps up my project for today :) Thank you so much for joining me and remember to come back August 28th!
