Our Great Sponsor at Die Cut Divas is 
One Happy Cut

The challenge is new technique/die/stamp/colors, something you're using or trying for the first time.

1. Make a project where you either use a new technique, die, stamp, colors...

  2  Explain what the "new" technique, die, stamp, color combo, etc. is in your post.   
  3. You Must use a die cut or file cut made on your machine (or a friend's, not store bought) on your project or card
4. Only Four submissions to our Challenge per challenge month are allowed. 

Here are our Divas to start you off for the month.

Arlene is showing off the inside of her card, which is the first time she used the adirondack chair..  
I viewed youtube videos on the Adirondack Chair and this is very similar to the Karen Burniston video here with the exception of using the hat, sunglasses and flip-flops instead of the cat.
See Arlene at A Bit of This and That for supplies.


Dawn has used a new die in an innovative way
 I used an Elizabeth Designs umbrella die to make the butterfly's wings.  Second new technique is doing a faux letterpress using a die to emboss on the background.


Join the fun and enter the challenge.  Welcome to the new year from The Die Cut Divas
