I haven't been on the team for very long, but even before I was I followed them each week and enjoyed all of the inspiring creations they made. I'm so happy to help celebrate their 2nd Anniversary this week. We went with a party theme...for obvious reasons!

Fancy Friday - Artwork Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). You'll love all of the wonderful ideas you see on this hop, so be sure to circle all the way around. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Erica's blog, and I'm sure you loved her fun project! Our challenge this week is an "art challenge", and our creative assignment was to make a project without words or greetings on the outside, featuring only art.

TGIFC104 - Polka Dot Theme

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.

Happy Easter!

Hello! I just wanted to sneak in here today to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I have a couple of cards to celebrate the holiday to share with you today.

I colored the background with Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party inks and my aqua painters onto Shimmer White Cardstock. I also stamped and watercolored the bunnies in Early Espresso. The eggs were stamped in Basic Gray and watercolored in pastel colors. You can see the color combo I used below.

TGIFC100 - Casing Mercedes!

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.

The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop, so please vote for my project. You can do that here. Our theme this month is using the All Things Thanks set. I made a simple set of thank you cards to share today. Everyone could use some more thank you cards, right? For this batch I let the pretty paper and coloring do all the work for me.

TGIFC98-Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the next TGIFC#98 Challenge based on this cute sketch.

TGIFC98

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!)
