Celebrate–C4C #176


Happy Saturday and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! This week the awesome Frances is challenging us to use the negatives from die cutting on our projects. I love to do this so I found this a fun challenge!

I decided to create a little scene with some soon-to-be-released Die-namics dies: Jumbo Kite and Grassy Edges. OMGee! I love them BOTH!!

So, first I made the sky background by cutting our my Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds from blue paper and embossed for a little texture. I added the Die-namics Grassy Edges die cuts and popped the whole layer up on foam on a Whip Cream card stock base, giving me some creamy, dreamy clouds :) Then I assembled my kite and popped it up, as well. To finish it off, I stamped a sentiment from a set being released on March 11—Birthday Sentiments—on a cloud die cut and popped it up on the kite.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:


Here are the products that I used on this card that will be released on March 11:



And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C176.
