Take It Easy . . .

Welcome Back Dies R Us Fans!
Have you been to the store lately?  
There have been literally hundreds of new dies released 
and offered through out this month and you'll want to get your order in right away!

Darlene here on this LAST day of July offering a little 
inspiration by using die cuts to create a card that just by looking at it
gives you a feeling of peace and tranquility!

Who doesn't enjoy sitting on a park bench just listening to the birds singing in the trees?  Well, that's what  I had in mind when creating today's card using only TWO die cuts.
The dies I've used today are:

When I can't find the background design paper I want to use, I simply pull out my ink and sponges and create my own as I've done today.  Plus I wanted my dies to be the focus of my card ... not the background.

To create the various colors for my birds/butterflies, I first die cut the entire die using green card stock then used scraps of red, blue and purple card stock to run back through just those portions of the die that contained the birds/butterflies.  A little snip here & there ... a touch of white glue and VIOLA ... the birds were singing their happy tunes!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Please remember we have a NEW CHALLENGE beginning tomorrow and will last through August 13th.  The theme will be:  SUMMERTIME FUN (YOUR interpretation!)
Please come join us!
