Dies R Us Challenge August 1, 2021(Anything Goes!)

Hi, there!

Happy August 1st!  It's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  All you have to do is use a brand of die that Dies R Us sells...easy peasy!  So, please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating! 

For today's card, I made an underwater scene!  Cute fun little images from Lawn Fawn!  

For my card, I started with a white card base.  The background was made using distress inks and a Tim Holtz stencil for the rays.  All images were colored with copics.  The jelly fish and stars are from the Lawn Fawn set (So Jelly).  And, the clam is from the Lawn Fawn set( Year Six).  I tried to make what appears to be foaming bubbles by using embossing powder in several areas.  The seaweed images are from Paper Sweeties.  The frame is from IO(Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames).  I applied Wink of Stella to the images and twine to finish the card.

For the inside of the card the star once again.  And, the sentiment is from the same Lawn Fawn set(So Jelly).  I had lots of fun making this underwater scene!  I recently purchased these frames from Dies R Us and love them!  I'm sure I'll be using them quite often.

  All dies 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)
