The Cutting Edge Challenge #9



I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!
It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another inspiration project, this one done by Lisa! 




 Let yourself be inspired by Lisa's  card, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted). This was such a fun card to CASE!
 Here's what I did:


I first covered my white card base with patterned paper, then I cut a stitched panel from white card stock. Next I did cut all the flowers and leaves and added them with foam tape. I then cut the sentiment die three times and glued them all together before adhering it to the card.


  • Stitched Panel - Lil Inkers
  • Plain flowers- My Favorite Things
  • Detailed Flowers - Papertrey Ink
  • Leaves- Memory Box
  • Hello- Serendipity Stamps

Festive Friday #39

Hello my friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! 

It's time again for another challenge at Festive Friday!




Here is the inspiration photo for this time. Some greenery, and a Merry Christmas, so many ways you could have fun with this photo!



You could even stick a bunny in it! :D





And since I had already colored and cut out several versions of this darling little bunny, I just had to incorporate him into a Christmas card. I added the cute little stocking from Papersmooches and that's all he needed to be a Christmas bunny! :) I covered the entire front of my white card base with red card stock. Then I cut out a white stitched mat and stamped the wreath and sentiment. Then I added the bunny and stocking with some foam tape to pop them up a bit.

Supplies:
Stamps: Wreath- WPlus9, Bunny-Mama Elephant, Wreath and sentiment- Papersmooches.
Dies: Stitched mat- Lil Inkers



I hope you will play along with us at Festive Friday!

You can also check out the amazing talent from the other design team members at Festive Friday!


Thank so much for stopping by!

I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend! 

Hugs,

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop




Look at me! I made it in time for another PTI blog hop! Yay!


Here is the inspiration photo, and I was inspired by the color, the big bold polka dots,  and also the design with the bold pink border around the white.

Here is what I did with it!


I used my PTI Cover Plate Circles die and cut it out of the lighter pink and layered that onto the darker pink. I cut the white panel using the PTI Mat stack. Next I stamped and cut the flowers and leaves out and mounted them on the panel with foam tape. Last I stamped the sentiment.

Supplies:

Stamps:
Dies:
Paper:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great week!

Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge Blog Hop






Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone is staying cool! We're not! It's been over 100 degrees for three days now. We've had a mild summer for the most part, but I guess summer decided to go out with a bang. I guess it will just make Fall seem that much sweeter :)


So today I have a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge Blog Hop! I've been hearing about this for weeks and was really looking forward to playing along! All that is required to participate is to use some kind of die cutting on your card.

And my new Mama Elephant stamps arrived just in time!



Oh these stamps are so adorable! I made six cards with this set! So much fun! For this one I cut a stitched panel out of the strawberry patterned paper and glued that down. Next I cut the scalloped circle out and mounted with foam tape. Next I colored these cute little images with my Copic markers, cut them out with the matching dies and adhered them to the circle with foam tape. Last I stamped the sentiment. 

Supplies:
Sentiment by Paper Smooches
Paper: Doodlebug Design

Lots of great sponsors for the Blog hop! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hugs, 

Kay :)

Festive Friday #38 Reminder

Hello my friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! 

Just a little reminder that there is still time to play along with the  challenge at Festive Friday!




Here is the inspiration photo for this time. Very interesting photo! I have loved seeing all the different ways that people are interpreting this. 




Now this is NOT a "Kay" card. There is no pink, no flowers, no cute little people or animals, no bright colors.... it's just not me. BUT, I do like it! I don't know how it came about, it's so different from my usual style and I wasn't striving for that. It just happened :)




First I stamped the white panel with the black stripes, then added the sentiment. I created cut files with my Silhouette Cameo for the snowflakes, cut them all out, then stamped them. I added foam tape and mounted them randomly. Then I added a few little rhinestones for some Christmas bling!


  • Stamps: Stripes-My Favorite Things, Snowflakes-Martha Stewart, Sentiment-Papertrey Ink
  • Paper: Pure Luxury GinaK Designs



I hope you will play along with us at Festive Friday!

The Card Concept Challenge #17

Hello my friends!

It's time for another fabulous challenge at The Card Concept!


This weeks challenge is to create a card inspired by this lovely photo. As soon as I saw it, I thought of my Papertrey Ink Mighty Oak Tree Cover Plate. 



Here's what I did with it!


So I cut my Papertrey Ink Mighty Oak Cover Plate die and cut it out of the blue paper. I popped out all the cut outs,  then glued that down to my white card base. Next I cut out the trunk in brown and I cut the leaves out of several different shades of green. I then glued all of those back into the spaces on the blue piece. Next I cut out the stitched hill Landscape Trio from Mama Elephant, and  glued that down. I colored and die cut out my darling little Mama Elephant girl ( whom I love to pieces) In My Heart Stamp set, and mounted her on the little hill with foam tape. Lastly I cut out the hello sentiment ,Clearly Besotted, twice, glued them together and then glued that down to my card. There you have it! :) 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
 Stop by and see what the other designers have created and  I hope you'll join us for the challenge at The Card Concept!

Hugs,



Kay :)
