case study challenge 132

Judging from the entries last week you are all really enjoying having Julie Ebersole as our CASE Study muse this month! Seeing as we are on a roll, here's this week's card :)

I was happy clapping when I saw this card - I do love a bit of negative die cutting :) Here's my card and then I will tell you a bit more about it.

The new Simple Numbers dies from Simon Says Stamp come attached together with those little nubs so that the numbers appear as a block. It's easy to break the nubs and use the numbers individually but I wanted to take advantage of the lovely even placing of the numbers while they were still attached to each other. I die cut them from a white panel and backed with some patterned paper. Oh and I must say I love the clean lines of these numbers and they are the perfect size for cards :)

The splatters from Julie's card transformed into enamel dots on my card and I added a little butterfly on there too as a nod to the original inspiration :) Here's the links for the rest of the crew to see what they made:

How nice, love it!

You'll probably find yourself having to break up the die, so run some "blanks" through first to keep on hand. It is truly impossible to line those little buggers up so perfectly ever again. I love the washi? on your card and came to see what it is. What is it??? And do you stamp off when you use your Smokey Gray - mine is nearly as dark as black?

Another amazing card! xxx

What a brilliant design Debby! The patterned paper behind the numbers is gorgeous!

I don't have a straight line in me Maria, so great tip for running some blanks of the die before I break it up. Oh and It isn't washi on there but some striped patterned paper cut on the diagonal. The paper is from the 6x6 My Mind's Eye pad. I don't stamp off my Smokey Gray but the little cube I used to use before I got the full size pad was much darker. This full size pad is a nice mid coloured grey. Hope that helps :)

And now I'm mad with myself for happily separating my alpha and number dies! LOL! A fabulous card as always! :)

Danke! Very strange about one color being so varied. And so funny that the strip is PP. A nod to Jennifer's tip on Day 1, eh? Love it.
