Default F4A138...Being Negative is now IN...(10/12/12)


F4A138
Negative Die Cut

Being negative is never really nice. But lately, you probably have seen it in design and home decor and...yeppers...even paper crafting. (Thank you to Mybearybest for suggesting this challenge.)

How to: Using your dies or electronic cutters, create a negative shape. Then fill that shape in with a patterned paper or other contrasting paper. Make it the focal point of your card...

And presto...your negativity is really great! And...if you want to go the extra mile today, figure out how to make it count for one of this year's HYCCT challenges! Be sure to send it in to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center as well.

Fluttering By Example



Treble Clef Example


F4A138 Gallery Submissions



Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

What a fun challenge. I LOVE the look of negative die cuts. I might have to create a few more cards for this.

You can see the negative on the front of the card.
I used the Marianne design cutting and embossing die LR0168:

Does it count if I put a stamped and colored panel in the negative cutout? I made this for my HYCCT challenge, inspired by the Lonely Goatherd from the Sound of Music.

I found a negative die cut scrap in my scrap box this morning and decided to do this challenge even though I'm kind of late. Here's what I came up with:

I can't stop using negative shapes now. It's all this challenge's fault. But I LOVE the look.
