TGIF, everyone! Things have been super busy around here. We're moving back to the States in February, and we had all of our household goods packed up last week. So, I've been up to my eyeballs in cleaning and organizing for the last couple of weeks. I kept out a little (well, it's actually pretty big) crafty care package so I'll still be able to craft a little over the next few weeks. It felt so good to get to create this project...it's just been SOOOO long!
Anyway, it's time for another Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Challenge. The challenge this time is to switch out a letter in your title (or sentiment...if you're a card maker) with a die cut of an object. Well, I seem to have stretched the challenge a little bit, because I substituted a die cut for an entire word in my sentiment. Honestly, I'm surprised that's the only mistake I made. I've barely been able to keep my head screwed on straight lately, so my project will have to do. We also had the extra challenge of using only scraps for our project. Here's what I created:
I got the fun sentiment and cup from the new Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Hot Cocoa Cutting Files set. I simply arranged my cuts on my Silhouette mat, created an offset (shadow) layer around the cup, and welded that shadow to the brown layer of the sentiment/title. All of the cardstock came from my scrap bin. The wooden pattern is actually four strips of washi tape that I laid down next to each other to create a table top for my cup to sit on. I added some ink and some doodles, and my card was all done...I hope you like it.
Now, it's your turn. Head on over to Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other Design Team members created, then link up your own project that has a die cut in the place of a letter in a word. Remember to try your best to use your scraps...it's a great way to start cleaning out that massive pile you know you're collecting. ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back next week with lots and LOTS of projects for you. Have an amazing weekend!
