Cutting Edge Blog Hop: Fill My Thoughts

I had the thrill yesterday of being a guest designer for the Cutting Edge Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh but I couldn't stop with just yesterday's card.


Today's card is a little simpler and relies on some cute feathers for interest.  This card uses stamps and dies by Simon Says Stamp who is one of the sponsors on the hop.  I cut the feathers and then used stencils and white ink to sponge a pattern on just one side.

Fill My Thoughts

This is a hop in which everybody needs to participate.  There are prizes for playing and prizes for commenting.  The hop is to celebrate die cuts so you need at least one on your card - other rules are at the blog hop link: Cutting Edge Blog Hop.  Check out these sponsors!


I used the colors from the color throwdown.  I had bookmarked this challenge as a must-do mostly because I could not even imagine how to use these three colors together.  But my hat's off to color throwdown - it's a fun combo!


  • Stamps: Simon Says Stamp You

  • Ink: Stampin' Up Night of Navy, WPlus9 White
