Blue Birds singing . . .

Love Because You Can!

Hello Dies R Us friends and welcome back to our Inspiration Blog.  Our team is here to inspire you Monday through Friday, showcasing some of the FABULOUS dies available for your purchase at our Dies R Us Store.

Sue Wilson Designs - Spanish Collection - BackgroundMy card today uses a variety of fun dies and, I based the entire card around this beautiful image I found over on Pinterest recently.  The gorgeous background die is one of the Sue Wilson Designs dies from Creative Expressions ... Spanish Collection Background 'CED1201'.  Isn't it just gorgeous?  And since you can't see the center portion, here's a closeup of what the die looks like.  These dies are all so pretty you almost hate to cover them up with anything else!

Behind my bird image I had die cut the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Mandy Doily #DL276' in white card stock then die cut a blue panel using a Spellbinder Classic circle die.  Another blue panel was die cut with a Spellbinder Scallop circle die, cut in half and positioned on the bottom of my image panel.

Now that I'm looking at this background die image ... and my finished card ... I could have very easily cut the entire center part out and used it on another creation!  
Dang!!!  Oh well ... I'll remember that for next time!

OH and at the last minute I decided I needed to add this fabulous Memory Box 'Party Music' #98757 panel on the front to pull out the music background of my image.  There!  Perfect!  
I few added pearls and ribbon and my card is ready to send off in the mail!
To finish the inside, I've used a few more dies available at Dies R Us Store.  A 'portion' of Spellbinder 'Fancy Lattice' #S5-152   and Cheery Lynn Designs 'Happy'  #B226 and 'Birthday'  #B231

So there you  have it!  
With all these amazing dies available at the Dies R Us Store, you can make a beautiful card inside & out in no time at all!  Be sure to pop over and check out the growing list of dies available to you.  And if by chance it's out of stock ... simply click on the 'Put Me On The Waiting List' tab, add your information and you'll be notified as soon as it's once again available (which usually isn't very long at all!).
