Stampin' Celebration!

Hi friends!  Today's card was inspired by the challenge over at Stampin' Celebration!

The bottom photo on the right inspired my card.  I have to admit that last year when the stag stamps and dies came out I was NOT a fan.  This year is a different story, I can't get enough of them.  haha  Does that happen to anyone?  This one by Julie Ebersole/Ellen Hutson is one of my favorites!

AND because I couldn't decide which stag die I was going to use, I made another one using this stag die by WPlus9!

To give thickness to my stag dies I used Craft-a-Board by Ellen Hutson.  It is a chip-board like material that is thin enough to use with your dies.  I like to use this instead of layering 3-4 die cuts using paper.  For these I cut through the Craft-a-board then glued a white die cut on top.  The craft-a-board is a cream color and I wanted my stags white.

Do you have a favorite stag die?  I decided that I love both of these.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Hardwood (SU), Mini Banners (Clearly Besotted), Winter Wreath (Avery Elle)
Ink:  Pure Poppy, Soft Stone, Spanish Moss Versafine
Paper:  Pure Poppy, White, Soft Stone, Craft-a-board (Ellen Hutson)
Accessories:  Stag Trio Die (WPlus9), Prize Stag (Ellen Hutson)

The Cutting Edge

Hi friends!  I am playing along with The Cutting Edge Challenge today.  I am sad to see that this is going to be the last challenge.  Even though I haven't played along as much as I would have liked, I have always been inspired by this fun challenge.  Here is Amy's card that inspired me:

I absolutely LOVE this card, the colors, the angles, the snowflake, all of it!!!  I have everything Amy used on this card and will CASE it exactly at some point but for my card today I used these fun Holiday Top Word Edgers by Impression Obsession.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Paper:  White, New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Pumpkin Pie (SU)
Accessories:  Seasonal Sentiments (Wplus9), rhinestones, Holiday Top Word Edgers by Impression Obsession.

Merry Monday #136

Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Bonnie challenges us to use the colors red, green & white.

I used the Phrase Play #8 die by Papertrey Ink for my card. 
 I love using the inlaid die cutting technique.  I made 2 more cards with the same supplies.

These all use the die and inlaid technique.
I just changed up the bases and where I added the twine.

Christmas will be here before you know it.
Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
 Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
