Surprise! for Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

I'm posting today on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  I always enjoy having a chance to play with fun dies!  It's such a treat for me.  There are dozens and dozens of brands of dies for sale in the Dies R Us Store. Today, I'm focusing on dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs

Can one ever have too many birthday cards?  I volunteer in a nursing home, and bring cards to the residents there when I know it's their birthday, so I always need a stash of cards.  So, when I saw this fun balloon die from Elizabeth Craft Designs in the Dies R Us Store, I knew I had to have it in my collection:

The balloon is called Big Balloon, and it has 2 dies -- the balloon and the string.  The 'surprise' sentiment is also from Elizabeth Craft, and of course fits on the Big Balloon perfectly. 

Here's a photo of the supplies used.  They will be linked at the bottom of this post.

In this next photo, all the pieces have been die cut.  They just need to be assembled.  I used both Stick  It Adhesive Sheets (for the sentiment and the string) and the Best Glue Ever for the rest of the card assembly. 

The card went together so quickly that it was just about as easy to make 2 as it was to make one.  Here's a second one, but a slightly different color scheme:

Dies used on these cards, found in the Dies R Us Store:

The background paper on the first card is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the Celebrate papers.  The designer paper on the second paper is actually a foil paper from a Spellbinders card kit.  The foil doesn't show up in the picture, but is very pretty IRL. 

Check out the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog often for wonderful ways to use incredible dies found in the Dies R Us Store!  You won't be disappointed!  Then, join in on the Dies R Us Challenges, too!
