TGIFC214 - Create A Set

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's TGIF Challenge, and this week we focused on Create A Set of cards. It's such a great idea to create a few extra cards when all of your supplies are out and your creativity is already working! You can use the same layout or the same colors or the same stamps and papers so you don't have to reinvent the wheel as you create.


I wanted to play with the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set again before it retired, and I wanted to feature effects and the same set of colors.

Fancy Friday - Designer Series Paper Love

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). This month we are focusing on our love for Designer Series Paper, both papers that are retiring and those that are included in the upcoming 2019-2020 catalog. You'll love what you see tonight on our fancy blog hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from my beautiful friend Jennifer's Blog. She always shares such lovely creations!


I decided to highlight one of my favorite packs of paper, the Needlepoint Nook 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Designer Series Paper. This paper started with real hand embroidery, which was photographed and turned into these patterned papers. One side has beautiful, multi-color images while the reverse side is cream color thread on solid colored fabric. For each card, I featured the backside pattern in a banner, along with a piece of solid color cardstock die cut with the two border dies from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies.
