Wow, so much gets packed into each week but at the same time, it flies by. We are back for another CASEing the Catty Challenge and Blog Hop and this week we are CASEing a Die Project from either catalogue. With so many projects to choose from, I’m sure you will find one that you want to case.
Seeing as I used the gumball machine bundle for my project last week, I thought I’d have a flip through the mini catalogue and see what other projects used dies. I didn’t get very far! I ended up CASEing the card on the front cover of the catalogue as I hadn’t played with the Windmill Fields Dies yet, so I got them out of the BBB.
I kept a lot of the card the same but added a few of my own elements/changes. I started with a Mango Melody card base and then cut a mat of the DSP from the Flowering Fields DSP. I then used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the window out. The scenery is another piece of DSP from the Flowering Fields DSP and a piece from the New Horizons DSP for the sky. The fence, the windmill blades and the background of the windmill were all cut out in Early Espresso from the Windmill Fields Dies and Crumb Cake for the front piece of the windmill. Adhesive sheets are your best friend when cutting out intricate dies.
The tree comes from the Tulip Fields stamp set which I inked up using Stampin’ Write Markers so that I had the different colours for the trunk and the leaves. I used one of the Round & Square Brads to attach the blades to the windmill so that they can spin.
The sentiment comes from the Celebrating You stamp set and were heat embossed in white onto a strip of Poppy Parade. I then finished it off with the bicycle in Highland Heather.
Next up is my fellow SA demo, Tina, with her lovely hanging basket card. Keep hopping around as I’m sure this week the projects will vary a lot as there are so many die projects to case.
All you have to do is pick a die project from any current catalogue, make your version of it and share it on our Facebook page.
Until next time, happy stamping
