Can You Case It? #140

This week, it’s a colour challenge – Yellow, Orange and Craft, which have a very Autumn feel to them.

It suits our Northern hemisphere right now, but one can be forgiven for thinking that it suits us here in Melbourne at the moment too.

Whilst we should be enjoying warmer sunnier days, after all we are in Spring with Summer fast approaching, but our Melbourne weather has been just as cold and wet as it was in the middle of winter 😦

Here is my card for this week.

Whilst my mind has been focused on Christmas mostly, I needed a few Thank You cards too. So I pulled out my trusty scribbles and I have been dying to use my Beautiful Banners stamp set too.

You know I love my swooshy scribble thinlit die set – but I wanted to try something different by using the negative space. I have seen this done before so couldn’t wait to try it out myself. Here is how I did it:

First, I cut two different coloured pieces of cardstock to the same size. I used the coloured piece in the background and the Craft colour in the foreground.

Next, I punched out the scribbles in the usual way; line up where I wanted them, punch out with my Big Shot. But then, when I went to lift the cardstock from the die, I wanted to do this and keep them in one piece. So I gently bent my die back, exposing the edges of my cardstock, I used scissors and my thumb to help keep them altogether when pealing them out of the die.

I applied glue to the negative pieces of the pattern, gently turned over my piece and fitted it back into place and pressed to stick them down. Again with my trusty scissors, I lifted out the scribbly piece to use later on.

I made one in Yellow (Crushed Curry) and one in Orange (Pumpkin Pie).
