The Cutting Edge Challenge #8

It’s time for the another Cutting Edge Challenge! Our inspiration this week is an amazing card created by Design Team member Kay Miller.

Here’s my take on her card:


I was drawn the colors in Kay’s card, as well as the idea of foliage providing structure to the design. I used small birds in lieu of the flowers. I also substituted a white card panel on a blue base for her blue panel on a white base.

We’d love to have you play along! Head on over to The Cutting Edge Challenge blog where you’ll find inspiration from other members of the team, the rules and regulations, and the InLinkz tool for you to link up your project!

Supplies: Taylored Expressions die, Hero Arts sentiment

Enjoy Life

I’ve been playing with Taylored Expressions stamps and dies this month, and today, I’m sharing a card created with the Hangin’ Out – At the Beach stamp set. It’s hot here in the Pacific Northwest, unusually so for the region, and the beach sounds like the perfect place to be at the moment!

EnjoyLifeI colored the palm tree and the surfboard with Copics; I stamped both on Gina K layering weight cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut the palm tree; I fussy cut the surfboard. I used the Mama Elephant die set to cut the sandy hill, placed in front of two lines of waves cut with the Taylored Expressions Wave Border.

Hope you’re staying cool wherever you are today!
