Stamp-peding My Way Through Life

Dies R Us Birthday Challenge

Did you know DRU has two challenges every month? That's two chances to win an egift card to the DRU shop! What are you waiting for???? I'm the guest designer for May and here are my designs for the Birthday Challenge!

My first card is a CAS design using Lawn Fawn, Cheery Lynn, Memory Box and Penny Black dies! I started with a basket weave embossed panel that I made using a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder. The tag is cut using Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Dies; I attched brads to the top and the tag was added to my card with foam tape. Other Lawn Fawn dies used are Happy Birthday Borders DieLouie's 123s Dies and Louie's ABCs Dies. 

I cut the "to you" off the Birthday Border Strip and added it to the top edge of a Memory Box Grosgrain Ribbons die cut, LOVE the detail in the die! The strip was added with foam tape. The 2 and U were cut three times each, glued together to create some dimension and added to the card base.

For the top of the tag I made a Sunflower using Cheery Lynn - Sunflower die, added it to my tag along with Penny Black - Leaves.

Have you noticed I love designing with Sue Wilson dies? It just so happens DRU carries a huge selection of Sue Wilson Dies

This birthday card was made for my cousin, Chris, and has made it's way safely to Northern California. Yes, dimensional cards take more packaging and MORE postage but I'm not sending cards like this everyday!!! Plus, Chris is my favorite cousin, ssshhh don't tell the others!

This card is A7 (5" x 7") in size. I adhered a panel onto the front of my card base and then cut a frame using Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection Background die. I added the background panel to the card front using spray adhesive. 

Using the large die, from Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Elements, I cut a frame, left the paper in the die and sponged with Distress Victorian Velvet. The frame was added to the card with foam tape. My sentiment tag was made using Sue Wilson Frames & Tags Zoe and a Waltzingmouse stamp. The tag was added to the card with foam tape.

The floral embellishments were made using Sue Wilson Perfect Peony CompleteLaurel Leaves and Olive Branch die sets. The center of the flowers are Art Glitter Gala Glitz Pink.
