Boy has it been a job to post this morning! Love the stamp!

I don't really have a favorite die cut company. They all have drool worthy products! 😻

Leanne said...

I'm new to die cutting so faves as such. Lovely card.

barbara macaskill said...

Tattered Lace has some gorgeous dies! So very intricate and beautiful! Spellbinders is my favorite company though because they are the ones that got me addicted! Sue Wilson, Creative Expressions, has lots of splendid dies too! Sizzix, Prima, Simon Says and so many other great die cutting companies to choose from!!
My favorite DIGI from SLS lines is Nature Fairy! LOVE it!! Wish I could print it out!
LOVE how you colored this gorgeous image! TFS!

cebelica said...

Very nice card. Great choice of colours!
Oh my, a favourite die cut company? That's a hard one! I love dies and use them on pretty much all my creations. I use different brands. Some of my favourite ones are Spellbinders, Memory box, My favourite things, Magnolia, Joy crafts ... Really, I can't choose just one company. I think I might be addicted to die cuts. lol
hugs! xx

Linda Simpson said...

This is so hard to choose a favourite digi company, I suppose it would have to be Aurora Wings by Mitzi Suto Wuiff. A lovely card and the image is brilliant.

What fun and different images she has, Holley. I like the one you chose, but I would have to get the "wine drinker" as I have a couple of friends that would love a card with that image. My newest favorite die cut company is Gina Marie Designs. I love the stitched edge dies as there are so many in a set and the price is great.

Mel C said...

Great card, love those colors! I like her wedding watercolor flower clipart & Cute Bird digi from her shop. Favorite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs & Sizzix.

Kajcyika said...

hey holley, great card again! Your cards are really awesome :)
I have to say that SLS digis aren't really my style but I like cute monsters stamps, they are so adorable. :)
My favourite die companies right now have to be memory box, my favourite things, lawn fawn, cotagge cutz, Marianne design and maaaany more. I just love dies! :D

DonnaMundinger said...

Ahhh, she's gorgeous and so is your card! I love me some Dia de los Muertos and your soft treatment of her is beautiful! I have a number of them from SLS Lines and they're my fave. Don't have this one though. I think she's a "must have". I think I have the most Spellbinder's dies, but I pretty much buy anything that catches my eye. Love them all! xxD

KarinsArtScrap said...

Very nice card though the image is not in my style.
My fav die cut companies are Sweet Dixie, Marianne Designs and Joy!
Hugs, Iwona

Glennis said...

Great card design, I love tattered lace dies, but I'm sorry - I do not like the image you have used

Andree said...

A fabulous card and image Holley. The layout and colourway are lovely.
SLS Lines have some brilliant animal digis but I quite like the Marie Antoinette with beehive, birds and ribbons.
Most of my dies are X-cut and Marianne ones. The always cut so easily xx

Lucie H said...

Not my favorite style, but you did a great job with it.

KT Fit Kitty said...

This image is a bit too creepy for my tastes but your card is beautiful and it's my favourite colour! As for SLS, I like the Cool Cat Trio and I already have it! The Pretty Geisha is also lovely. As for dies, I LOVE dies - the are my favourite crafting item! I probably have more Memory Box and Impression Obsession than any other breand. Simon Says Stamp dies are great too - my stitched rectangles are my most-used dies! Thanks for another day of giveaways! Have a great weekend!

Laine said...

Fabulou card Holley!

Lea Brawn said...

Wow amazing Holley. Sue Wilson dies are my Fave and Sweet Dixie is a recent discovery. X

Pat said...

I love your card. DIA DE LOS MUERTOS IS one of my favorite holidays. With SLS Lines, it's so hard to choose A favorite, but I like Ct on a bike, rebel kitty. He looks like fun!

Bunny said...

I like the card. My sister in law and her family celebrate this day. It is their heritage. I've sent them a few cards that they've loved.
Lately I've liked the My Favorite Things dies. I had only Spellbinders for years. So, MFT has been very nice to use. I don't know about a lot of the dies. As you said, some are expensive.

Karenladd said...

You always do such a fabulous job with unusual digi designs Holley!! Love the way you combined the fancy die cut with this eerie stamp!! My favorite die cut manufacturer is probably Spellbinders, for their nested sets. I am also loving the stitched shape sets by Lawn Fawn lately.

SHartl said...

I really like the way you left parts of this image uncolored, and then used deep pink for the rest. I like the rainbow and clouds image from this company and my favorite die cuts are by Sizzix and Paper Smooches.

Nikki C said...

Such a pretty card. She has fun digi and cute goth girl w teddy is so much fun. How can you pick one die cut company there are so many to play with and choose from so whatever catches my eye works wonderful for me hugs Nikki

creationsnz said...

I'm not familiar with this event for the card. I haven't seen the iris before either, but it lovely. My fave dies are any!

Kate M said...

You do love your Dia De Los Muertos cards don't you - and this is fabulous. It's not something that we celebrate here in the UK, but nonetheless I do admire your creations.
I have so many different dies that I couldn't decide which one is my favourite, but as Sizzix was my very first purchase I probably still use these most regularly.

Ardilla said...

HI!
I don't like this kind of images, but your card is awesome, Holley.
Hugs,
Ardilla :)

vinita jain said...

I didn't like to play with Gothic images, but your one is beautiful!
I have different brands dies which caught my eyes, I purchase them! But the most favorites are Spellbinders and Memory Box.

Shelley said...

She is stunning! Simply gorgeous coloring. From SLS I simply adore the Mermaid and I would love to have the Pin Up Coloring Book. I have been looking at Cottage Cutz dies recently and really like them.

Jean said...

SUch fun! Love the die! Some of my favorite dies are from Lawn Fawn.

Jennifer Scull said...

I can't pick just one fave die cut company since I use dies from so many places on every project. ;)

I do tend to favor Spellbinders, Sizzix, and
My Favorite Things the most though.

your card is wonderful!

DJ said...

Beautiful card. I love the colors. Tattered Lace has such intricate dies. I have never tried theirs, most of my dies are either Spellbinder's or Tim Holtz.

Cindy van Oorschot said...

Lovely card, not my favorite line of stamps, but if I had to pick one, would be Geisha girl, as for die companies, mainly I buy spellbinders, but mainly cause the tattered lace dies are too expensive here, especially with our dollar right now, but do love them, but again it would be partially what catches my eye, but also if I think I can use it more than just one type of card.
Hugs Cindy

LChippy76 said...

Beautiful Card Layout!!
I like Tattered Lace Dies...and I like the Nature Fairy!!!
TFS!!!

Holley (Tondre) Barnhart said...

I like the Feb 12 card. I like the muted colors. This is one of my favorites so far.




The card with the iris is nice. I really like the die, not sure about the image tho.

Beautifully created card. Love the layering. I have a small collection of spellbinder dies. I like all other companies too, but all re expensive especially when they are single die .

ionabunny said...

Love your card. I love Cheery Lynn. Check out their animals with words written on them. Just discovered Die-versions. Lovely designs and not a bad price. Hugz

Stacy H-W said...

What a beautiful image!! I'm obsessed with dies! I don't have a favorite die company though.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

I love the Day of Dead and all of the sugar skulls. I love the dies that Paper Smooches create. They are so cute and adorable. I would next go with spellbinders

Vickie Kertz said...

Another lovely card. As for stamp companies I love paper trey inc

Jennifer Dillon said...

Lovely card Heartfelt creations and tattered lace

Erika Horvathova said...

So beautiful card - love color.
My fav die companies are Diemond Dies, Spellbinders and Tattered Lace, I own dies from other companies too (C.C. designs cutters, x-cut...)

Audrey R in Austin said...

Hi Holley - my favorite dies are from Spellbinders, sizzix, papertrey, hero arts! Actually, I love them all! But I like the way you put your image in a spellbinders die and then mat it with the next larger size.

bissecat said...

Oh cool card .I like colors .Spellbinders is number one to me.

Patricia St Martin said...

Interesting card Holley. Not my style. Their are a lot of wonderful images I like cats but this one is really cute. https://www.etsy.com/listing/230827659/digital-stamp-sitting-girl-with-cute-cat?ref=shop_home_active_10
