Dies R Us #150 ~ Just Desserts

Hello crafting friends and welcome to a new challenge at Dies R Us.

Challenge # 150 ~ Just Desserts!

I recently purchased, and received as gifts, a few dies that I've been waiting to play with and this was the perfect challenge to create a card using my new dies.

I began by deciding that an easel fold card would be best to showcase all the dies I wanted to use. Next I cut all the mats and layers for the different sections of the card.  I cut the apron, and some of the little bits and pieces that come in this die set, and assembled it. Using mostly scraps that were left from the apron and the layers , I cut and assembled the cupcake. Lastly, I cut the Celebration word out of yellow and dark pink to give it a bit of a shadow.  I also added a little sparkle and shine using the Wink of Stella pen, and by adding glassy accents to the cherry and the word.

It was easy to make and didn't take too long.  I enjoy putting little pieces together to create an item or a scene, so this for me was a lot of fun.  As always, I have listed the supplies I used, each linked to the Dies R Us store, for your convenience.

Remember that Dies R Us have international dies sales.  This is the time when you can buy dies from Marianne Designs, Joy! Crafts, Nellie Snellen, and a few others.  The best way to know about these 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, I'd like to remind you that Dies R Us' sister store,  Didi Crafts, is now open. It has warehouses located in the USA and Canada.  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!

Till next time,
stay safe and healthy!
