What Marcie Says: I have never snipped apart the super fun Doily Square Die because it's just so awesome as it is! After die-cutting it several times out of various colours and the main white panel, I pieced it all back together. The small star from the Good Stuff Die set was a perfect little piece to inlay into one of the circles. A sweet sentiment and some glitter along the bottom finish it off.
What Daria Says: I used Tiny Dies Trio to make my inlaid die-cutting and heat embossed Lovely bear from Tribal Bear Stamp Set. I think that is one of my all time favorite combination: craft+white+gold :)
What Shona Says: I used the Doily Square Die, along with the Perfect Word Die and stamps from the Congrats Stamp Set. I die-cut the middle diamond shape first and added a panel behind it before I die-cut the outer frame. That way the whole panel didn’t fall to pieces and turn into a jigsaw puzzle!!

What Marcie Says: The gorgeous Doily Circle die just BEGS to be used as a stencil. On my main panel I used a DYE ink pad to fully ink up the cardstock, saturating it completely. After die-cutting the doily from a scrap piece of cardstock, I sprayed the back of it with a temporary adhesive and placed it on the inked panel. Using a watermark pen I coloured through the 'stencil' and then discarded it and set aside the panel to dry. As it dries, the pattern appears!Leafy Stamp Set, With Love Word Die
What Daria Says: For the first card, I used stencil to position and stamp dots on the back panel. It is actually a very fun and useful trick when you want to make your own polka dot pattern :) I also stamped lots of leaves from Leafy stamp set to mimic the background pattern from the January inspiration photo. What Daria Says: For the second one, I took a circle stencil and used it to heat emboss some circle pattern with liquid platinum embossing powder. I took for my sentiment a Waffle Flower With Love die! It is so delicate and beautiful and suits to all occasions.Lotus Stamp Set, Leafy Stamp Set Can you tell that the DT girls had some fun with stencils? Hope you will join us in our challenge too!

I used both regular and reverse masking techniques on this card. I die cut several feathers in varied styles and sizes to use as masks. I also used the negative diecuts for reverse masking. I stamped some feathers and blended over them on white paper with inks using sponge dauber.Using: Feather More Stamp Set; Feather More Die; Tiny Twine Bow Die; Fall Blend Inkpad; Winter Blend Inkpad
I used liquid masking fluid to mask the chain before stamping the pine leaves. I masked the stocking using post it before I stamped the gifts.Using: Stocking Stamp Set; Stocking Die; Willy and Friends Stamp Set
I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo! I masked a circle cutout on my kraft colored cardbase and added some rose colored ink to the center to create an ombre look. I stamped the leaf over the top in the same color ink.Using: Leafy Stamp Set; Flower Circles Stamp Set; Holiday Label 1 Die

Using a generic circle die as a mask, I masked off the centre of the card and watercoloured the light blue across the panel. Once dry, I removed it and used the negative part of the circle die to mask off the panel so I could focus on the central area of the card. Tiger & Lily coordinating dies were used with masking paper to create the island scene along with no-line watercolouring.

I used the leaves from Leafy Stamp Set, as I really liked the hanging leaves from the inspiration photo. At first, I masked the area with some posted notes, blended my background and then stamped the images slightly off-setting them... I wanted to achieve a more graphic modern look :)
