Pink CAS Christmas

I have one card for three challenges today.
First challenge I am playing in is this week's
  For my CAS card today I just used good old stamping.  Surprise. I combined three stamp sets to make my Christmas tree.  I made my tree using the Spare Me set from SugarPea Designs.  I used the front and back of the silhouette arrow  and the silhouette design for the top.  I Made the tree trunk using a dotted line stamp from Stripes 202 and stamped it in between the sentiment from In The Meadow, both from A Jillian Vance Design.
The second challenge I am playing in is the Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Challenge
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, they will donate $4 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every holiday card with a noteable amount of pink on it submitted. Isn't that Awesome?!

The Third Challenge is Addicted to CAS: Code Word Vellum
I used vellum as a mat behind my white panel.  I love to do this with vellum.

In my close up
you can see the two pinks I used to make the tree by using the front and back of the stamp
The Inside
I tied it into the front and just added a few sequins to spice it up a little

and this is my first challenge.  I chose to spotlight Julia aka Crafty Julia.  Julia is a long time SCS'r.  She loves to play in the SCS challenges and her cards always make me smile. 
 I chose to case THIS sweet card of Julia's. 
My changes: Scoring, sequins, heat embossing.
I used one of my favorite SugarPea Designs sets Tin Can Chat.  
 Close Up view.
I wanted to keep this simple and whip up quick.  I colored these cuties very simply, fussy cut leaving a border like Julia did on her card and popped them up. 
I used two lines of washi tape that matched the colors of my card for the inside.

SPD October Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

Welcome to the SugarPea Designs October Sweet 2 Repeat blog hop. 
 This is where we showcase our newest release! Now that you've had a chance to add these sweet sets to your SugarPea collection, we're bringing you even more inspiration! Be sure to hop along and leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win $20 to spend in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe!

 I am playing with the fun new release Bountiful Blessings.
Isn't she the cutest! I had fun coloring her.  I paper pieced her overralls to match my background designer paper.  I used C1 and C3 Copics to give a little shading on them.  I then cut up the legs and curved them with my finger all around and popped them up.  This gives them shape. 

How I got my strip in the center?
I stamped her in the center of my panel.  Then I cut two lines 3/4 apart from the bottom and from the top just to the outline image where I cut along the lines of the image. Then I popped up the whole panel for a little dimension.  You can see Maile Belle's Tutorial for this Cut Out Panel Technique HERE

 Here's a little close up. 
 Here is the inside to match the front. 
Easy peasy.

Stamps:  Bountiful Blessings (SugarPea Designs) Paper: Vellum,  Recollections 110# White (Michaels), Friendly Forest (Doodlebug Design) Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics: E000, E00, E11, R20, YR02, YR04, YR07, YR23, Y17, Y21, B00, BG01, B04, YG21, YG23, YG25, E31, E33, E35, E37, E79,  Accessories: Enamel Dots (My Minds Eye), Scotch foam tape Technique: Cut Out Panel
