Dies R Us - Birds of a Feather . . .

. . . Stitch Together!

Happy Friday Everyone!
Time for a new inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.

Did you see there is a DT Call going on right now through March 19th
for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog?  Click HERE for details.

I was commissioned to creation a group of cards that have birds, tea cups and stitching incorporated into the design.  I love the combination of elements required but knew immediately I wanted to use some of my gorgeous new Sue Wilson dies to 'bring it all together' and make them super pretty!  

My image is an Etsy purchase which I die cut using the Spellbinder Celebrations 'Pierced Rectangles' #SCD-012 set.  I'm sorry to say this set is no longer available in the Dies R Us store. 

The edge die cut I used is Sue Wilson 'Mini Gemini Die - Ara' # CED4413 and the die cut used to adorn the top and bottom of my image is another Sue Wilson die set ... 'Configurations - Swirly Lace Edger' #CED6405.  I have used the corner die from this set.

By simply adding a few sequins and rub on stitching  ... VIOLA! my card is complete and beautiful!

I hope you will take a minute and check out all the fabulous dies available at the Dies R Us Store!  AND, don't forget we have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog too!  A fun new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a PRIZE VOUCHER offered to one lucky winner each challenge.  It could be YOU!

Beautiful card, Darlene. I especially like the edging. I think I purchased this Gemini die during the CCNS closing sale, and now I need to go check it out to see for sure. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
