Dies R Us Challenge Blog!

Hi, everyone!

As many of you are aware, Dies R Us now has TWO blogs:  the original "Inspiration" blog and a new "Challenge" blog!  The challenges will run for 2 wks.  Team A will have a challenge beginning on the first of each month and running until the 14th.  Team B (the one I am on) will start their challenge on the 15th of each month & run until the end.  Be sure to check it out for a chance to win some wonderful prizes! The only rule is you need to follow the challenge theme and use at least ONE die that is carried in the Dies R Us store! How easy is that!!

This is my first posting for Team B's challenge which is "May Flowers" and I couldn't wait to get started!

I added some embossed lines to the front of my "house" to make the windows & shutters look more realistic.  I used the following dies for this card:  Poppy Stamps Grand Madison Window, Poppy Stamps Grand Madison Window Shutter, Poppy Stamps Grand Flower Box, Impression Obsession Spiral Flowers, Impression Obsession Spiral Daisy, Impression Obsession Cat Die Set, and Impression Obsession Fir Sprigs.  The butterflies were cut with Martha Stewart punches.

I hope this has you wanting to think about flowers!!


  1. Oh, my word, I think I need everything on this card! LOVE the shutters on the window and how you scored the lines to look like siding on the house. Of course, the flowers in the window box are soooo pretty, and the kitty is the perfect finish! I have been so busy with spring planting my stamping has taken a back seat. Mornings outside have been gorgeous. I need some rain to get me back in my stamp room!

  2. Beautiful card! The window die is one of my favorites. Your brightly colored flowers look fabulous in the window box.
