It’s time for the another Cutting Edge Challenge! Our inspiration this week is an amazing card created by Design Team member Lisa Addesa.
There’s so much about Lisa’s card that inspires me! Here’s my take.
I was drawn to Lisa’s card’s design, featuring an embossed card base and a card panel with negative die cut hearts in rainbow colors. I substituted the hearts with stars, and I made the panel black rather than white. The yellow, green and orange stars on my card are negative cuts – I ran the panel through the Big Shot with three different star dies. I then backed the panel with circles cut in those colors. The pink and blue stars are adhered to the top of the panel.

It’s time for the first Cutting Edge Challenge! Our inspiration this week is an amazing card created by Jackie Rockwell.
Here’s my take on the inspiration card:
I was drawn to the “star” aspect of Jackie’s card, reflected by the design and the sentiment. I cut several colors of cardstock with the Poppystamps Superstar border die. The turquoise and orange stars are inlaid in the navy stars. The “awesome” was cut three times and glued together so that it would have some depth. While my colors aren’t the same as Jackie’s, I used colors with energy and punch.
