Fancy Friday - Paper Perfect Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team)! The challenge this month is the Paper Perfect Challenge. We're featuring several of the patterned papers from the current Occasions Catalog. You're in for a creative treat, so be sure to circle all the way around the hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Krista's blog. Did you see her fun project?!

I'm featuring the Tutti Frutti Designer Series Papers in my cards. I also copied my favorite card from the Sale-a-bration brochure. It featured the Party Panda Stamp Set and these papers, along with this card layout. These cards also use the Fruit Basket Photopolymer Bundle of stamps and coordinating punches.

This first card has a citrus theme, and I used the stamp and citrus slice punch to fill the bowl with punched images. One of my favorite embellishments from this catalog is the Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, featured on all three cards.

For my second card, I stamped several strawberries in the basket, but also punched two to layer on top. I love the sentiments cut up in this way. It matches the fun feel of the patterned papers.

My last card features this fun berry patterned paper. I stamped the bowl, but cut berries and leaves from the patterned paper itself to fill the bowl. I really love these papers. There are some busier patterns, which make a good focal point, and several geometric patterns which make the perfect accent. And, there are lots of fruit images to cut out and feature as well.

TGIFC136 - Color Scheme


Hello and welcome back! It's time for a color challenge this week at the TGIF Challenges blog. It's a color combo that lends itself to holiday projects, so I created a set of Christmas tags.

Last week's challenge was about the ombre technique, so I decided to use that too. Did you see the projects last week? They were amazing, weren't they?

TGIFC127 - Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hello and welcome back! I'm back with this week's TGIF Challenge, and it's a fun tic-tac-toe challenge. Our assignment was to select three items in a row, column or diagonally to make our project with. I chose the middle column, so I'm featuring "not a card", Designer Series Paper and Halloween.

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the September Fancy Friday Blog Hop with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team)! This month we're featuring 3D items, for gift giving and many other reasons. You're in for a creative treat, so be sure to circle all the way around the hop.

I had the idea to make some ornaments using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes in the diorama style. I used both the Hearts Come Home Bundle and the Night in Bethlehem Bundle.

OSAT Blog Hop - Very Vintage

Hello and welcome back! It's July...how did that happen? That means it's time for another One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop, and our theme this month is Very Vintage.

OSAT2017

I have to say that vintage style is not my forte. I used to make more cards in this style, but most of the sets I used have retired! I did pull out a stamp set and dies that I hadn't used yet, so that's a bonus. I pulled out the Best Birds Stamp Set and the Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies for my card and gift bag/tag today.

OSAT Blog Hop -- All About Men

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop, where it's all about the men. You'll see lots of projects for males of all ages, so make sure you circle all the way around the hop. You might have just arrived from Rick's blog, so welcome!

OSAT2017

I ordered some new sets from the Stampin' Up catalog, but they were full of flowers, gemstones and other things that don't fit our theme! So, I chose to use the Happy Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set again, which made it into the new catalog from the Occasions Catalog.
