Sweet Moments

I saw a challenge on a new site and knew I wanted to do something to play along.  For this particular challenge, one of the design elements has to be die cut, whether with an e-cutter or manual device.  I chose to use my Big Shot, primarily because I don't own an e-cutter but also because I love using my Big Shot.

For my base cardstock, I used Naturals White followed by a layer of Hello Honey and then a layer of Early Espresso.  The die cut piece would be cut from Hello Honey with my Hexagon Hive thinlit.

I decided to use only one row from the Hexagon Hive die-cut.  I chose a row of five cells, two of which were not open.  In the open cells, I planned to place images that spoke to me of summer and fun.  What could be more fun than flip-flops, ice-cream, and the sun itself?  I stamped each of the images onto Whisper White using my Memento ink and then coloured them using my Blendabilities.  I attached each into an empty cell with Dimensionals.

To finish the card I heat embossed "sweet moments" with White embossing powder.  I felt the card still needed a little something and so decided to stamp a paper airplane on Whisper White and then cut that out carefully.  I attached that using Dimensionals and then drew "flight lines" with my white Signo pen.


For more cards using die-cuts, check out The Cutting Edge Challenge.

I also decided to join the "anything goes" challenge at The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

And then I noticed that there was another "anything goes" challenge and joined it as well at the Sister Act Card Challenge.

    1. Thank you, Jackie. The Hexagon Hive thinlit has a number of hexagons that don't cut out and I debated whether or not to add something. In the end I just liked the flow with those uncut areas empty. I had a great time with the challenge and hope to do more.
