Friends . . .

Happy Friday Dies R Us Fans!
Darlene here today to share a card that is going in my mailbox today to a friend who is feeling a bit left out at the moment ...
Sometimes a little surprise like a homemade card is all that is necessary to lift the spirits of someone who is not feeling quite up to par ... or has maybe lost a loved one and just needs to feel loved!

Dies R Us has a wide range of dies to help you create those uplifting cards ... pop over and get your order in today.  If you're not signed up for the newsletter yet, you'll want to do that while you are there because they are always having fabulous pop-up sales and you need to see the newsletter to be aware they are out there!!  HURRY ...



I fell in love with these two  Spellbinder sets as soon as I saw them.  

You can do SO MUCH with this adorable 'Asters & Poppies' set!  
Today I utilized them in a couple of different ways.

First I die cut them using white card stock ... then before removing them from the die, I used a small sponge finger dauber and inked some color on the exposed portions.  

Secondly, I die cut a second set using a very deep purple (looks black and almost is! lol) which I then positioned behind my colored set to give the illusion of a shadow.  I love how they look ... how about you?

I knew the flowers were going to be the accent to my sentiment panel so I really wanted my 'Inspired by Stamping' sentiment to POP!  I was able to achieve this by using TWO of the SIX dies in the Spellbinder 'Majestic Labels Eight' set.

I hope you've found inspiration in today's card and also find a few minutes in your busy day to create a card that you can mail to someone and help lift their spirits!

Remember our current challenge is still open 
until Monday, July 13th.
the theme is Stars & Stripes.

Till next time!
