Hello there. I have a CAS card to share today utilising some new goodies. Here is my card:
Using the colours for the current challenge at Color Throwdown, I first stamped the Stampin Up trees using Concord & 9th inks cubes, then die cut them with the matching stitched triangle dies – also from Stampin Up.
As these trees had a pattern, I die-cut the Tim Holtz deer – a new die set just released – out of dotty paper from Clearly Besotted. I die cut all the deer, but these are the two I chose for this card. The rest I put back into the packet of dies for future uese.
I placed them on the card, then decided I wanted to created a hillside, so as this card measures 7 x 5 inches – my go-to card size – I find the slimline dies more than adequately cut the length. I used the Lawn Fawn die set, decided which part of the hillside I wanted, then stuck down as you see here.
I didn’t stick the deer down fully, as well as the feet and legs being quite thin and narrow – I like to leave them and the antlers unstuck. I think it creates some movement on the card.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – purple, green, khaki
A Bit More Time To Craft – anything goes
Allsorts Challenge – winter scene or snow
Stamplorations CAS October Challenge – CAS – option of grey and orange not taken
