Now to the project! 
The card I have made is all about re-purposing the dies and creating something completely different than that they were meant for. 
I have used wine themed dies to make a card shaped like a hobbit house! When I saw the barrel die for the first time I thought it was looking like a hobbit door so I decided to stick to that idea to create the rest of the card and this is what I ended up with.

Please scroll down for some close ups and a VIDEO TUTORIAL!








Thank you so much for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is amazingly talented Svitlana Shayevich - keep hopping for more inspiration and more prizes!

  12. Absolutely stunning card. I always like to see different ways a die or stamp set can be used other than obviously intended. It shows just how versatile a set can be, and this is the perfect example of that. A real credit and shows a true crafter who thinks ouside the box, literally!
