TGIFC204 - Blends Spotlight

Hello and welcome back! I'm here with this week's TGIF Challenge, and our focus is on Stampin' Blends markers.

TGIFC204

I made a simple card, and focused on the beautiful colors you can get from the Stampin' Blends markers. Plus, I love a rainbow, don't you? I used both the dark and the light markers in Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the letters overlapping from the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink. I wanted to get an ombre look (light to dark) from top to bottom, and also highlight what the colors look like when blended with their neighboring color.

TGIFC200-Bunches of Butterflies

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's theme challenge featuring bunches of butterflies.

TGIFC200

I decided to feature another card using the Needle & Thread Bundle, which is one of my favorites from the current Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog. the butterfly patterned paper, the small trio butterfly stamp and the stitched butterfly stamp which coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The card base is Petal Pink Cardstock, and I stamped the trio butterfly in Petal Pink ink. I wrapped the card with the Petal Pink shimmer ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to cut a large frame from the Needlepoint Nook 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper. The stitched rectangles go perfectly with this suite! I also cut two layers of the frame from Whisper White Thick Cardstock, and glued all three together. Then, I adhered it to the card base. I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy ink onto more Whisper White Thick Cardstock, and cut it out with the label shape. It's adhered over the ribbon and the rectangle with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Fancy Friday - Case the Occasions Catalog 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 to case the Occasions Catalog. We're featuring several projects from the current Occasions Catalog that we have copied. 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 Cindy's blog. Did you see her fun project?!

This a box (I think) that I chose to case. It's simple, but sweet.

Yay You Photopolymer Stamp Set

And here is my card. I cased what is a box I think from page 54 of the catalog. It had a little strip of ribbon, a piece of stamped paper and a stamped background. Plus, I loved the addition of baker's twine and sequins, two of my favorite embellishments!
