I finally got the Stampin’ UP! Windmill Fields Dies on the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine this weekend. The poor little dies thought I forgot about them but I didn’t…
I used the CAS sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #526 this week. The colors in the New Horizons Designer Series Paper and the little fence posts created the two distinct areas on the background.
Little story about the gold fence posts…I grabbed a strip of white paper off my cutting area to die cut my fences. I stacked them in a pile on my crafting desk and went to finish another project. I was designing a sampler for an upcoming class and needed a piece of gold foil I knew was also on my cutting area. I looked everywhere for that gold foil strip…then finally gave up and cut into a 12″ x 12″ piece. Fast Forward a half hour later to finish up my Windmill card…only to find when I turned over the white fence to put glue on it- it was the gold foil strip I had cut into!!!! Dang, I was not going to waste that gold foil…and it actually had a brushed texture to it from the well used acrylic plate…a Gilded Gem added to the middle of the windmill blades pulled it all together:)) Oh, my fun filled Saturday nights…
A simple sentiment from the Stampin’ UP! Flowering Fields stamp set finished off the inside of the card.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Lovely, as always.
