Summer, Watermelon, and Ants -- for Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

I'm posting today on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  The Dies R Us Store is one of my favorite places to shop, with their great selection of dies (over 55 brands!), and special pre-orders, fun special order items, plus lots of supplies.  It's a crafter's dream, but tough on the budget, LOL!

Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite stamp companies.  They have such cute stamps and matching dies.  The one I used on today's card proves how fun they can be!

The Dies R Us Store has a great selection of Lawn Fawn products.  This uses the Happy Summer stamp set and matching Happy Summer die cuts

Here's a photo of all the supplies I used, including 6x6 papers.

I stamped the watermelon, and colored it with Copic markers.  I stamped the ants with black ink and then used the matching die cuts to cut all the pieces out.

I wanted the sentiment to run across the red gingham paper.  I could have done this by masking the "Happy Summer" stamp, but I decided to cut it apart instead.  It was easier to line it up that way, and easily cut into two words.

Here are the products I used with links to the Dies R Us Store:

Papers on this card are from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  The green background paper is from the Fruity paper collection.  The red gingham paper is from the Rainbow Gingham collection.

That's it!  The picnic is over.  I'll leave you with one last look at the card...

I hope you visit the Dies R Us inspiration blog often to see the great inspiration from the Dies R Us Inspiration team.  They are a talented group of ladies!  Then, create a project of your own and enter it in the Dies R Us Challenges.  I'd love to see your creations.
