Hello everyone, and welcome to our latest challenge at Dies R Us.
Challenge #172 ~ Anything Goes!
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store)
Although Christmas in July is in full swing, I would like to share the card I made for my hubby for Father's Day.
As you know, Dies R Us has Special Order sales events. During these times you can purchase a variety of International dies from companies such as Marianne Designs, Lea'bilities, Joy! Crafts, and a few others. I normally buy more than my fair share and used a couple to make this card for hubby.
After picking a few papers from Pion Design, My Beloved Son collection, I die cut the mats I wanted and adhered them to the card. Next I cut out all the pieces for the watch and put it together. The shoes and the hat cut out as a single piece. If you leave the die cut in the die, you can then use any ink you want to sponge in the details. I cut out the Celebrate word 3 times and stacked them to give it a little bit of dimension. The champagne bottle was an image from Google that I uploaded to the Silhouette, traced it and cut it out.
I have listed the dies I used and linked them to the Dies R Us store for your convenience. You may not find some of these dies in stock right now, because like I said above, most of these are only available during the Special Order sales events. But you can add to your wish list. The best way to know about these Special Order sales is to subscribe to the Dies R Us newsletter.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store. A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month. Visit our challenge blog, where my team mates showcase their creations to give you a little more inspiration. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.
Before I go, let me mention that Didi Crafts is our sister with warehouses in the US and Canada. This means that our Canadian friends no longer have to worry about huge taxes or expensive shipping fees. It has some products that are the same as Dies R Us, but in addition, it carries international dies, and other crafty supplies for a variety of crafts. Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!
