Tuesday DCRU Challenge: LAYER IT!

Hey everyone!

So glad to be back again to host this week's Die Cuts R Us challenge...which I have simply titled, LAYER IT!

Yes, that's right! We want to see what you can do with your papercrafting tools-whether it be diecuts, embossing, etc. to create a LAYED embellishment on your card, layout, or project! You can use punches or diecuts to create a layered embellishment for your card-aka flower, ribbon
slide or tag, etc."

We'd love to see all of your lovely creations, so please remember to LEAVE A COMMENT on today's post telling us where we can view your work! Mr. Linky has been acting up on us so just be sure to leave a comment on this very post and we'll be sure to check out your submissions!

The DCRU Store offers TONS of possibilities for creating dimension and texture to your papercrafting products! Whether it's a die cut, a punch, or anything in between, be sure to check out the store and have a blast creating!

Check out this ADORABLE flower pot card that Cara created. I love the layered, die-cut flowers and the beautiful papers she chose-it really pops off screen, doesn't it? So pretty!

Diane created these awesome layered flowers AND ladybugs for her card-there is dimension galore here! LOVE it!Here's her recipe:
For the flowers and stems I used 2 Cricut cartridges Accent Essentials and Walk in my Garden both available at Die Cuts R Us. The flower pot and lady bugs both were made with Cricut Walk in my Garden available at Die Cuts R Us. I used dimensional foam on the flower pot and on the lady bugs.

Margie created this stunning card using these really cool looking dimensional flowers and gorgeous butterfly paper!

For my card, I used some different flower punches (Ek Success), dimensional pearls, and rhinestone brads to create these flowers for a flower pot card I've been wanting to try! I hope you enjoy it! I had a blast making it! Recipe:
Cardstock: PTI Dark Chocolate
Designer Paper: The Greeting Farm "Anyaversary" paper pack
Stamp: "Megan" from The Greeting Farm
