Fusion Season's Greetings and Addicted to CAS: Joy

I'm joining in on the fun at Fusion again this week!  I love the image - it is perfect for the PTI set I recently picked up ... here is their lovely inspiration - the photo where my heart leads me:

I was drawn to the shape of the leaves on their tree, too!   Here is my little card:

PTI Winter Woods - Cardinal and branches
Technique Tuesday Geo tags- retired
Metal accents by Heidi Grace
 
Next up?  I have fallen head-over-heels with a new Winnie & Walter Cutaway I received in the mail over the weekend ... get ready folks - you may be in for a whole heap of JOY from this blog!!  This one is headed over to Addicted to CAS: Challenge #78- JOY!!  Convenient isn't it? 
 
Why does she have that little tea light handy?
 
Voila!
 
Of course it is battery operated =]
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see it flickering!!
 
I hope to have a few more days of crafting before the holidays!  I have another new cutaway, and have been inspired [by a little friend of mine in Australia] to use some of my favorite patterned paper!  
 
I'll also be back tomorrow with a bit of fun for the Tea Lovers!!! 
 
Thanks for the visit!!

Oh wow!! Both these cards are beautiful!! I LOVE the white on white on the second card with the vellum window. So creative to put a tea light inside!!

Both cards are wonderful but I really have a fondness for those 'Charlie Harper' birds, how gorgeous!

Your cardinal is gorgeous and your new W&W cutaway die ~ Swoon! How clever you are to place your tealight behind the window panes, too! Really stunning work, Michele! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!

Michele Henderson said...

These are all just BEAUTIFUL! Love these bright flashes of color against crisp white backgrounds!

LOVE your first card. I have the PTI set but have yet had time to get it out and play. Actually, I am patiently waiting for the matching dies to come back in stock. Every card idea I have requires the dies, I am not a good fussy cutter. ;)

Love the JOY card too. Gonna have to pop on over to instagram to check it out. :)

What a fabulous Fusion Challenge card, Michele - the metal accents in the leaves are super! As for the Winnie & Walter Cutaway "Joy" die cards, well, now I want that die! :-)

Dana & Glen said...

Terrific cardinal card, love the shape and color of the leaves. The luminaire card is fantastic!

Bobby said...

You never cease to amaze me, Michele. Your take of the Fusion birds and branch is terrific. I haven't used my background stamp like that since I got it after seeing yours. :( Oh the joy in your JOY card. It is just stunning when it's backlit. No, it's stunning period!

Kay Miller said...

Gasp!!! These took my breath away! The one with the cardinal just went into my favorites folder to copy ;) LOVE it!! And the second... wow!!!! STUNNING!!

Leigh Penner said...

What a fantastic take on the inspiration, Michele ... that cardinal is fabulous set among the modern 'leaves'! Oh my ... joy indeed, my friend, what a stunning card ... crisp whiteness ... pop of colour ... and backlit!! You are brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

I've been having such fun with my PTI birds. And I love your creative design--great modern look! And your die cut design is stunning--so gorgeous with the added glow!

Your cardinal card is yet more evidence of your abundant creativity! Such a clever combination of images. Ah-mazing! Your Joy card...oh my! White on white, a spot of red, and back-lighting. Sighhhhh....love it. LOVE!
