Dies R Us Challenge-June 15, 2020!(Summer Time Fun)

Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Dies R Us Challenge!  And, the theme is (Summer Time Fun)!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project.  Come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating!

I decided to make get out my distress inks and have fun making a sunset background.  The distress inks that I used are Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed.  The Hello Summer die is from Tutti Designs and the Checkered Frame die is from IO.  Wink of Stella was applied to the die cut for interest.  Black dots to finish the card.

For the inside of the card, the sentiment is from Pink&Main.  And, the sun is from Paper Sweeties.  

All dies and inks that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)
