Dies R Us Challenge August 15, 2022!(Summer)

Hi, Friends!

For the second challenge of the month, the theme continues as Summer!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  

I have another summer card for DRU this month, but with a darling flamingo pair from Lawn Fawn.  The frame and trees were die cut using  dies from Lawn Fawn, also.  The tropical leaves are from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For my card, I started with a white card base and added the frame.  The background sky was made using several distress inks of kitsch flamingo, wilted violet, spiced marmalade, mustard, and broken china.  The images were colored with copics.  White gel ink and hand drawn birds for interest.

The links for the dies are listed below...

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)
