Challenge Yourself



Not a Challenge, 
But Challenging Myself.


On the eve of a 5 day staycation..
I should be cleaning up a storm right now....
Ahhhh that can wait until tomorrow.  
We really must pace ourselves.

I saw a card and "challenged" myself to CASE it.

Jennifer McGuire has this really cool video on
Partial die cuts... I fell in love with the cards and had to make one.
I say one,  as it really was a trial and error, 
and a broken plastic bigshot "dealy thing" later....

I was only trying to bend a warp out of it.. SNAP!
My husband laughed so hard ..
I shrugged,.. Shoot I need a new one now.

Anyhooooo.. After all that Drama, 
I am pretty happy with the result,..

Here is the Video, on how to do it 
the right way.. LOL

Now my friends...it is YOUR turn to get crafty!

Live, Laugh
and 
LOVE!

Bummer about the plate~ new ones are so pretty though :) so is your card. The Jennifer is quite amazing with her techniques.

ps - Future - see Pinterest about flattening your plates - it really does work.

See you next year!

Your card came out fabulous!! I watched Jen's video last week and so want to do this. However, I do not have the nice dies that she does (or you do, for that matter!!) Intricate dies always scared me so I never bought any. I think I will need to invest in some down the road, though. Sorry that you lost a cutting plate. I have been buying them when I see them on sale at the craft store. Then I replace one cutting plate at a time. Happy New Year!!

This is so amazing. I saw that video, and STILL could not figure out how to do it myself. You are encouraging me to try again. Love how yours came out.
