TGIFC200-Bunches of Butterflies

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


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.

TGIFC142 - Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another TGIF Challenge, and this week it's a versatile sketch.


I'm currently obsessed with the Fruit Basket Photopolymer Bundle, and the cute little fruit stamps with matching punches! And, look at that beautiful patterned paper. There are some fun fruity patterns, with really nice simple geometric patterns on the reverse.

TGIFC138 - Christmas Carol Theme

Hello there! It's time for another TGIF Challenge, this week with a timely theme of Christmas Carols! Stampin' Up! has terrific paper this year with this theme, and in trendy black and white.


I started with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is lightweight and comes 24 sheets to a package. It's great for layering and all kinds of other fun things.
