Die Cut Diva's Something New Challenge spotlight

Today is my spotlight day at Die Cut Diva's! Our sponsor this month is-

They are giving away a $15 gift certificate, so make something with a new die, new technique, new color, etc. You can't win if you don't enter!

Here is my card-

I was intimidated by this die set when I first got it (many months ago!) and decided to test drive this new die. I love the cut out "closing nubs" that keep the card closed until it's time to look inside! The next card has the "spiral" attachment (see below). The instructions are very clear, and there are tutorials on youtube.com that show you what to do. I'm so glad I tried this die set, and I'll be using it a lot.

Here is a list of materials:
  1. Die: Elizabeth Craft Designs Spiral Pull die (flower die is included, along with leaf, heart, balloons, snowflakes), Elizabeth Craft Designs Owl (Poppy)(but you could use this ECD Owl), My Favorite Things Pierced Circles (or use these Memory Box Circle dies).
  2. Paper: Neenah white cardstock, unknown flower/teal cardstock.
  3. Pearls: Michaels Recollections.
  4. Stamp: Unity Stamp Co. (Going to be Owl-right).
  5. Washi tape: unknown.
Now for the spiral attachment card-

I also used Elizabeth Crafts Designs Roses, Cricut Artiste sentiment, and the hearts come in the Spiral Card kit (along with balloons, snowflakes, and leaves). The paper was from American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection, the sentiment on the front is Unity Stamp Co. and the inside sentiment was cut with my Cricut Artiste cartridge.


  1. Great cards! I especially love the rose card with that clever clear spiral forthe hearts!

  2. OMG this is so, so pretty! Thanks so much for playing in our ‘STITCHING’ challenge at Dies R Us! Please come back again soon!
