About Town

About Town

Hi There!

From the first moment I saw the new
Tim Holtz Cityscapes dies they
reminded me of a Neil Diamond song:
Summer in the City
Everytime I see them the song comes
into my head and I cannot shake it off!!

For those of you who have no idea what
I am talking about - worry not!  We'll 
just get on!

Here is Helen Chilton:

"I've been playing around with this Cityscape die
 to create a pop -up card.

Place the die about halfway down a sheet of A4 card.

Roll through your die cutting machine 
but not all the way - you want to cut out
 the buildings but not the base. 

Roll back when you think you've gone far enough.
 Don't worry if it's not cut far enough down - 
just lay the die back down and try again.

You then get this pop-up effect.

Score the card along the base line 
of the buildings so it stands up.

Colour with Gelatos. 
Die cut two more skylines and 
colour in pink and yellow Gelatos.

Add black stamping randomly using the 
Kaisercraft Dictionary Meanings stamp.

Then layer up with a black skyline on top.

Stamp on the white border and layer 
onto pink and blue card."

Materials used:

Tim Holtz Thinlits die Cityscape - Skyline
KaiserCraft Texture stamps: Dictionary Meanings, Stains

Yep.  Definitely hot in the city tonight
Helen. Ooops! Think that's another song!!
Many thanks

Think I'll just pop down to the beach
to cool off!!  Oh dear!  Feel another song
in there somewhere...............

'Till tomorrow

Mickie xx
