Jeanne here today! I hope you're enjoying the blog blitz! What a great way to see all the new dies in action. Today I'm showing the Country Houses Die. This one is really neat because while it is a beautiful intricate die by itself, you can switch up the look of the die by adding the Country House Roofs and Background die cuts.
This die was a wonderful surprise for me to open the first time. I was expecting a one piece background die - but look at this. You get a separate die for the houses, trees, and roof tops. This gives you the ability to add lots of color and create different looks.
You can easily cut the tree background die into several pieces so your trees can be many shades of green or fall colors! Don't you love all the different color trees in the background?
Instead of a circular shaped sun I thought one of the hearts from the new Stitched Hearts Trio would be fun and different. The little clouds are from the High Flying Kites die.
The heart at the bottom is from the same Stitched Hearts Trio Set that includes three stitched hearts, and three solid heart backers.
My village has red and blue roof tops - you can adhere them on top of the detailed Country Houses die cut, or behind the die. I adhered mine on top to add more dimension. If you look close you can see they have shingle embossed patterns on them.
If you love the new Country Houses die you're going to want to leave me a comment because that is the prize for the post today. That's right! Leave a comment by July 29 to enter to win.
