Die Versions and OWH blog hop


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Die Versions  and OWH BLOG HOP!

With this March new military  release it was just natural to make a mutual blog hop with OPERATION WRITE HOME blog and Die- Versions and  both OWH and DV designers used this  new gorgeous Military release

So as this is a blog hop, you should begin from the first stop here: http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps/
Be sure to follow us all and to comment as we do have a nice random giveaway  from Die- Versions to one lucky participant.
If you came to my blog  from Donna's blog here- you are on the right way
Donna @ http://donnainksla.com and if not- just go to OWH and begin there.

As you know there are some rules for cards made for OWH: the A2 size, flat as much as possible and no glitters.
So maybe it looks a bit clean and simple for my style, but then those are the rules I had to follow with those cards here.
I got 3 dies from new release and I  made 2 cards.
 The first one is a pure military one and I added DV die cut THANK YOU words from the old die.
The second card is a bit more bulky, but still stands for OWH standarts and I used one new hexagon Dreaming of you die - cut twice and layered) and 2 other DV dies- buttons from January release and Memories edge strip.




And a  second     one



And now to your next stop

Clever use of the real chain and I can find those cheap-definitely stealing that idea. :)

You did a really nice job with the layering on the dreaming cut. I was thinking I might not need that one but now .... This blog hop is going to make a dent in my crafting budget! :) such great ideas from everyone.

Dee Earnshaw said...

I adore your first card. It is so inspirational with its clean lines and message. Thank you for sharing

Shelley C said...

love both cards! The use of the corrugated paper reminded me that I have a bunch in my stash, and I need to pull it out and use it! It adds dimension and texture.

Donna Inks said...

Love the layout of your first card and your second card is so sweet! Thank you for supporting Operation Write Home!

Marie H said...

I love the boots! And the little heart locket you added is just perfect.

Pat said...

The first card is my favorite. I love the way you layered the dies. I hadn't thought of that. Such a great idea.

Pat said...

Thanks for sharing the sketch you used with these cards. I always find starting with an OWH sketch helpful. I love your cards.

These cards may be clean and simple by your style, but I see them as full of class and charm...sure to bring smiles to the recipients.

Jeanette Fincher said...

Very nice cards. I love how bold they are!

Sue C said...

Irit, I liked the 'boot footprints' die best. Such a creative mind. Great ideas for ways to incorporate the dies on cards for our servicemen to tell their loved ones back home they miss them or our 'Any Hero' cards.

I REALLY enjoyed the blog hop!!! I was SO inspired and anxious to make many new cards.

Thank you Irit, and the entire design team for all your hard work for our servicemen! I'm proud to participate.

Loved visiting your blog. Thanks for sharing the cards. My favorite is the 'dreaming of you' hexagon.

Beautiful cards. Love them all. I will have to visit you again now that I know you're here.

Marie said...

Great cards! Nice use of the dies!

Patricia Meadows said...

Love thecards. The footprint card is my favorite.

Bounding said...

The use of all the elements on the first card is perfect, the matching chain to simulate dog tags is genius! The second card will make anyone who receives it so happy, layering of colours, the happy feel, can make it easier to go to bed at night knowing your loved one is dreaming of you from far away....we can always meet in dream land!

Cheryl L. said...

Thanks for being a part of the hop! The layering of the dies and the dog tag chain are a nice touch.

Irit, I love both cards, but the first one is totally my fave.

Cant decided between the two cards, so different but I really like 'em both! The first will make a fabulous Any Hero card and the second will make some Hero happy to send home to his/her loved ones. Thanks for sharing them!

I love these both. I have a soft spot for military theme cards and you showcase the boot prints die and badge die so nicely. I like the colors on Dreaming of You. Great cards.

Joan K said...

Great cards - I like that you created a lot of texture without overdoing the bulk. Both of these are fabulous!

Nancy Keller said...

Aww... That "dreaming of you" is adorable. I love it! Thanks so much for sharing! This has been such a fun hop!

I love the layering of the due cuts.

Andrea La Vigne said...

Both cards are wonderful, but I especially love the second one. The colors really support the theme of the card. Tfs!

Great card Irit. I really like how you overlapped the boot prints and turned them into a background element for the other die. Thanks for participating in the hop and for supporting OWH!

Annan said...

Your cards are very nice! I really like the colors you chose for the memories card. Super!

Marsha said...

Super cards. Love the layering of the die cuts and the chain - wonderful addition.

Jeanne Woody said...

Very nice cards. I really liked the colorful look of the second one with the Memories die down the side. But the military one is right on for a masculine card which OWH is always needing more of.

Misty said...

The details on your cards is stunning and inspirational.

sara said...

great cards I love hexagons so that one is my fav, that little smiley face on the star tooooo cute.

WhoMom said...

I love the fragmented detailing on your cards. It's almost a touch of Steampunk, but not quite. The brick backing diecut is wonderful.

Diane Loughrey said...

Wow - that first card is a work of art. A great way to use many dies.

Ann Abrahamson said...

Your cards ARE little works of art! I love the textures and they are loaded with interesting layers and details. TFS!

Love the way you layered all the different dies to make "scenes" on yoru cards.

lhalnan said...

Love your layering!

Ute said...

Irit, very nicely done. I love the chain at the boots in the first card, and the chain of the smiling star in the second card - and I always love the "Memories" edge die - it goes really well with dreaming of you. Great ideas, thanks. Ute

Great cards and great use of the dies. The more I see the bootprint die used the more I love it. Thanks for sharing.

Michele from MS said...

Beautiful cards Irit! Love all the little details and embellishments :-) Thanks for sharing ~

Aundria B. said...

I really like how you used the boot die cut on this card - I'm going to have to add it to my wish list. Also, love all the texture & colors on your second card - that little star pendant is so cute! Thank you for sharing these wonderful cards & for your support of OWH.

Anne Slattery said...

I like how you used camo colors on the boot card and the memories card is so bright and cheerful. Very creative. TFS

I really love your cards...so different! There is a lot going on, yet they are not too "busy". I like the outline effects of the dies on the first cards and all the textures on the second.
