Cutting Edge Challenge #15

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  This week's inspiration card is one of mine!!!  For my inspiration card, I used the On the Diagonal Die featuring the Dual Stitching detail from Lil' Inker Designs.  

This week's challenge also will be the LAST Cutting Edge Challenge.  It has been so fun to be a part of this!  Thank you so much Jackie! 


Pink. Orange. Green.  A favorite and yes, unusual color combination for a holiday card but I don't always like to create with the traditional colors when it comes to the holidays.  This color combination is just fun so I used it for my card today.

For my challenge card,  I've used the awesome STITCHED MATS: CIRCLES that feature LID's EXCLUSIVE "Dual Stitching Design".  When diecut, the circles not only cut a stitched circle but a stitched circle left on the negative!  That one detail gives so much more "WOW" to a card like this!  
You can find all of Lil' Inker Designs "Dual Stitched Designs" in the store HERE and by looking for this icon:


In the centers of the circles, I've silver heat embossed snowflakes from Cozy Winter Wishes from Lil' Inker Designs and then added them back into the stitched negative panel.  The final touch was adding in my favorite clear sequins in all 3 sizes (4mm. 6mm, 8mm) from Pretty Pink Posh.

Season's Greetings!

The holidays are upon us.  At our house, the tree is decorated and most of the holiday decor is up.  I know it's early but we are hosting Thanksgiving with ALL our family (both sides) this coming week and I wanted to be able to enjoy my 4 day weekend.  Being a full-time nurse, you don't get many (if any) holiday weekends like this!  I have plans to host, shop, spend time with friends/family, and just relax!

My card today uses the inspiration photo over at Festive Friday.......and I couldn't get the color pink for the holiday out of my mind so I created some pink trees using Tremendous Triangles from Whimsy Stamps.  


I stamped the zig zag triangle on the coordinating die cut and embellished with gold stamped dots from the Tremendous Triangles stamp set.  The glittery hill was done using the Stitched Border Trio Die set.  My sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings set.  Lastly, some gold stars were diecut and attached to the tops of the trees.


Check out the Festive Friday inspiration photo below and play along!!

CAS(E) this Sketch!

Hello everyone!  Have you seen the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch?  I fell in love with it because it is absolutely perfect to use with the Reverse Confetti Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts!

I used a fun color combo for my Chevies that was wintery and then glittered up some of the Let it Snow Confetti Cuts.  The Chevies make it so easy to line up and create a CAS card!


Here is that fabulous sketch from CAS(E) that Sketch for their 100th sketch!

AEIHeartU Challenge #18

I LOVE challenges.  I don't get to play along with many any more and that's going to change!  Today's card is 'just for fun'........nothing else!

I found the newest (and there is still time to play) AEIHeartU Challenge from Avery Elle.  It is all about 'holidays' and I've been wanting to ink up this set called Winter Wreath.

I started with adhering some Glitzy Glitter paper to sides of a white panel. I stamped my wreath with Latte AMuse ink and my bow/berries with Sky AMuse ink.  The silver berries were stamped with Silver Delicata ink and the sentiment was silver heat embossed with Ranger Silver embossing powder.

Peace, Love & Joy

Tracey's 25 Days of Tags!

I'm helping my friend Tracey McNeely celebrate her 25 Days of Christmas Tags this year!!  She has set up a new Flickr group to check out HERE this year as well as all her Pinterest boards with previous guest designers HERE, HERE, and HERE.  

My tag uses all Reverse Confetti goodies starting with the Sweet Treat Tent that I've trimmed down to make my holiday tag.  I just love the shape of this die!  I stamped some lines from the set So Stripey at the bottom with kraft ink on kraft cardstock.  Using the Branch Out Confetti Cuts dies, I layered my tree over a glittered snowflake from Let it Snow Confetti Cuts.  Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments.


Make sure to check out Tracey's blog HERE for all the details because there are prizes from some amazing sponsors!!!
