Hello and welcome back! It's time for a polka-dot theme challenge over at TGIF Challenges #104. One of my favorite polka-dot tools from Stampin' Up is retiring soon, the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, so I decided to give it some love today. And, I used one of my favorite techniques as well.
Hello and welcome back! I'm back with this week's TGIF Challenge, a color challenge #102. You can see our colors for this week below. They are so nice and springy!
Hello and welcome back! Today is a special day over at the TGIF Challenges Blog. It's our 100th challenge! Isn't that amazing. To help celebrate this fact, we are highlighting the blog's founder Mercedes Weber. Mercedes has fabulous style, mixing in lots of layers, shabby chic goodness and fun details.
I chose to copy this card from Mercedes' blog. I loved the bold stripes in the background, the layers with a doily, flower and circle greeting, and the banners as well. So, I copied those elements. I used the Cool Treats suite of products which are some of my favorite products from this Occasions catalog! I used the Crumb Cake striped paper from the Neutrals paper pack, over a layer of Peekaboo Peach Cardstock as the background. I covered the stripes with a layer of vellum to tone them down just a bit. Next, I layered a Watermelon Wonder doily, and a piece of the cute strawberry/cherry patterned paper from the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
Hello and welcome back! It's time for the next TGIFC#98 Challenge based on this cute sketch.
I love this whole Cool Treats Suite with the Cool Treats Stamp Set, Frozen Treats Framelits Dies and Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper. I haven't made too many creations with it yet, so it's about time I used it. Honestly I just stared at all of the cute dies for awhile, and tried to figure out which ones I wanted to use. (I feel a big card set coming on, so check back next week!)
Hello and welcome back! I'm back this morning with the next TGIF Challenge 96. This week it's #96, a designer challenge with the talented Bibi Cameron as our inspiration!
I just loved her card trio that was highlighted in the graphic below, so I took my inspiration directly from that set.
I copied her lovely card layouts, but I used butterflies instead of flowers for my main images. I stamped the butterflies in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder and Basic Gray.
Hello and welcome back! I'm here with the next TGIF Challenge, #94, a sketch challenge. This was a fun one to play with!
Hello and welcome back! It's time for TGIF Challenge #92. This time, it's a Designer Challenge featuring the wonderful Jeanna Bohannon!
Hello and welcome back! Today I'm back with the next sketch challenge for the TGIF Challenge Blog. We're at challenge #90!
I took a few liberties with the sketch, and moved my focal point away from the center a bit. Hopefully you can still see the resemblance to the sketch! I stamped rows of the plants from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set using Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks. Below this background, I added a strip of Bermuda Bay Cardstock and the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon from the Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon Combo Pack.
Hello and welcome back! I'm here today with the #TGIFC86 Challenge with a "Let It Snow" theme. I loved the colors of the inspiration image too, so I chose to use Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Real Red.
Hello and welcome back! So, today I have some exciting news. I have joined the Design Team over at TGIF Challenges! There is a fabulous group of designers there, and I'm so excited to start working with them on a regular basis. I've participated in the past with as many challenges as I could fit into my schedule, as they have some really fun and unique challenges!
So, today's challenge is a theme / inspiration challenge. We started with this graphic.
