Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #15 - Die Cutting

It's time for a new challenge over at Three Amigos!  Our challenge this month is to use shapes you die cut.  Anything you cut using a Cricut, Silhouette, Big Shot, Cuttlebug or any other machine.  I took the challenge almost to the max.. I used one stamp and everything else was die cut with my Big Shot!  Here's how I was inspired:

I knew I wanted to make something kind of shabby chic and this Prima Rose Quartz paper pad was perfect for that.  All of these design papers came from that 6x6 pad.  I cut my first layer of the wood grain using a gorgeous Waffle Flower die from the Lacey Layers Die Set.. one of my most used dies... it's so beautiful!  And that pretty doily... I love it because it's simple and is a nice backdrop... it doesn't take over... it complements.  It's from the Gina Marie Doily Die set.

As I started this blog post I went back to look at my May one and it reminded me I used this cup then too! I guess I love this cup!  It's from The Stamp Simply Coffee and Tea Die Set.  I love that these cup dies have a separate handle so it's easy to make that beautiful curvy handle a different color... or even gold!

I LOVE that when I cut the background woodgrain and flipped over the scraps this little piece was perfectly in tact and this die from CDD cut it perfectly!  That one is from the CDD Mini Shaker Clip Die set.

This cute sentiment came from Cas-ual Fridays Coffee Talk stamps.  I cut quite a few banners using my CDD Flag Banner Dies... another set I'm surprised I haven't worn out!

And this beautiful Coffee word was cut using one of the word dies included in the Stamp Simply Coffee and Tea set.  I finished it off with a few sparkly gold gems and some Prima Flowers.

And that's it for me!  Be sure to visit my Amigos and see what they've created.   Check out Donna's post here and Susan is on vacation this week so she'll be around for some mid month inspiration.  In the meantime Suzanne from Double Trouble Challenges (her post  is filling and her blog post is here.  and check out the Three Amigos Blog to see who won last month and link up to this month's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you create!
