Welcome back Dies R Us Friends!
Here we are on the last day of 2016 ...
We would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

 Darlene with you today!  I know we who are in the northeastern part of the USA are in the middle of winter ... but it's never too early to start thinking of warmer days that consist of flowers and birds singing in the trees.  Hence the inspiration for today's creation.

I recently purchased the Sue Wilson 'Indian Ocean Collection - Background' die set (#CED10011) and couldn't wait to use it on a card.  My card size is 5x7 and there are actually pieces to this die set that I did NOT use ... it's a 7 piece set!
Sue Wilson Designs - Indian Ocean Collection - Background
I had a large scrap piece of designer paper in my stash from another project and thought possibly it would give me the springtime look I was after so used it as the background as well as some of the other pieces (inside rectangular panel ... sunflower).
Here are the panels I cut and used for the background on my card.

Other dies I've used for the foreground of my card are:

Impression Obsession - Dies - Bird On Branch
Cheery Lynn Designs - Sunflower

Sue Wilson Designs - Petite Peony Cluster

For the floral element, I die cut the Cheery Lynn Designs Sunflower three times ... one time each from dark green card stock, white card stock and the daisy designer paper.  
Next I shaped the designer paper panel petals and stacked them being sure to offset them just a bit so all layers are seen.  

After placing the peony cluster in the bottom right corner I felt the sunflower needed a little 'something' so I die cut another peony cluster from the dark green card stock ... cut it apart and tucked it in around the sunflower!  Awww that's better!  LOL

 Remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop in regularly.

A 'Thank You' Card

Hello, Janice here with you again to share my latest card 
made for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.

After making lots of Christmas cards, I thought it would be nice to
share a 'Thank You' card I have made with a Tutti Designs die which I was delighted to
receive just recently.

Using a 6"x6" card base, I positioned the Memory Box - Ringo Tile die onto
the lower half of the card and ran it through my die cutting machine. I scored a couple of lines either side, cut a small piece from the bottom of the card and then glued a piece of pink card at the back.

Next from the same pink card, I cut the Tutti Designs - Swirly Thanks, glued it to the upper half of the card. To finish, I added some white punched daisies to the four flowers on the die cut, added gems to the centre of each flower and also to the Ringo Tile die cut.

Here are the dies I have used, the Memory Box - Ringo Tile is reduced at the moment
in the Dies R Us store, so you can grab yourself a bargain!:-
Thanks so much for stopping by.
