CASE #126 - Fancy Tiles

 Hi and hope everyone is doing good! I have two posts today - one for the 12 Kits of Christmas and this one for CASE Study!  This is the last week for our muse of the month Ms. Amber Daigre from Damask Love and our special guest designer  Tasnim Ahmed from Cards and Bookmarks!!  I've been enjoying Casing Amber - and oh this week is another good one!!! 


Check out this inspiration photo!!    You can focus on anything in the photo - some of the DT even zero'd in on that sunny yellow in the background!  But for me it was all about the lattice die cut.  I know just about all of us have a background die cut that's been gathering dust!  Seems like we buy so many great products that get put on the top shelf way out of reach!  Well time to drag that baby back into the sunlight!  I have been inspired lately by the die cuts where the designer leaves the cut outs in tact and doesn't remove them.  I thought I'd do something a little different.  I cut out an image from some pattern paper that is just too darn pretty to cover up and made a sort of jig saw puzzle out of it. 
I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll be doing with this design! Need a little inspiration? Hop on over to the other CASE designers and see what they came up with this week! Just click on their names below to hop to their blogs.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you over at CASE Study where you'll always be inspired to try something new!
