DRU #186 ~ Scent with Love

  Hello everyone and welcome.  It's the first of the month, so that means that a new challenge begins at Dies R Us today.

Challenge #186 ~ Valentine/Love! 
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store) 
Please note that this year our challenges are a little different.
We will have Anything Goes only every other month.  This month the theme is Valentine/Love.

When I saw these dies and stamps from Lawn Fawn, and the fact that I have more paper scraps than I know what to do with, this design popped into my head and I must admit that I like the way it came out 😀 The heart and XOXO dies were cut 3 times and then I adhered to each other to add a little dimension.  I die cut the XOXO an additional time using scraps of the same paper pad so that I could add a little interest to the O's.  I used copic markers to colour in the adorable little skunks.  Once this was all done, it was just a matter of making a few red and white mats to tie it all together. As you can see, even though I used the XOXO on the inside and stamped one of the lil guys, I still have plenty of space to write my message.

Here is the list of products I used to make this card.  These stamps and dies appear to be out of stock at the moment at the Dies R Us store. The best way to know when they're back in stock is to sign up for their newsletter HERE.

Well, that's another Valentine card for 2022.  Slowly and steady, I'm getting there 😀  Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a little of your day with me.  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 provide you with even more inspiration.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.  

And don't forget to visit our sister store, Didi Crafts.  It has 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!
