Stretching Your Dies With Kara

Hey! It's Kara and I'm back to share a fun way to stretch your new Stuck On You dies! There are so many ways to use this die collection as is, but when you transform one of them into a Band-Aid it opens up a whole new world of possibilities!

It wasn't until I was editing photos of this card, using the cactus, that I could see it! I was so excited to try it and I loved the result. I simply die cut the cactus from white cardstock several times and snipped off the sides to create the base of the Band-Aid. I wanted to create an ombre' effect so I added color with a sponge dauber and PURE Color Dye Ink in the shades Little Piggy, Sweet Gelato, the new V.I. Pink, and Cranberry Crush.

Just a few more details to make the Band-Aid look authentic, a small rectangle piece of cardstock and a little heart. The heart from Love Showers Layers was the perfect size. They were also colored with the same inks.

I die cut a panel of white cardstock using the 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle die. I cut the panel on the diagonal removing a thin section. I backed it with black cardstock for contrast. I placed the Band-Aids across the missing section to symbolize a repair. I added a sweet little sentiment from Get Well Gang with some get well wishes.

I just love it and I hope this inspires you to stretch those dies!

  2. Great idea and you could use the smaller side cacti to make a smaller size bandage since the middle will be covered with the square. So cute!!
