Lily Pad Birthday...TGIF Challenge 251:

It's that time again!  You ready for a fun challenge?!  Well...yay!  Then you have come to the right place!  Each week, over on the TGIF Challenge Blog, we give you a new challenge!  All you have to do is be inspired by the challenge, make something, and then post it on that blog!  It is so much fun to play along!  This week...we are using a fun sketch!

Here was my take on the sketch:




SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green
Inks:  Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Mango Melody, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Lovely Lily Pad, Label Me Bold
Tools: Lily Pad Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine

And here is the sketch:



Now you will notice the sketch has "photo" in that rectangle.  Well...I made a little watercolored "photo" for mine.  And turned it into a card!  Use the challenge as an inspiration!  Doesn't have to be exact!

Look how much fun that watercoloring is!  I watercolored the lily pad, after I stamped it onto Watercolor Paper.  Then I added a little Mango Melody wash behind the die-cut flowers to bring out the Mango Melody lilies.  😍  (Also...lets talk about how you can earn the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set FOR FREE!  AND the Lily Pad Dies FOR FREE!  All during Sale-A-Bration!  Let me know what questions you have!  I can hook you up!  😁)



I also love this little accent I made with just die-cutting the dies in white, and adhere to the Whisper White card front.  So fun!



Hope you enjoy this card!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Just head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along!

Love Blossom Heart Foil...

LOVE is in the air!  Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!!!  Yay!  Decorated some of the Heart Foil Tins and just put some chocolate in.  You can totally bake in them, so had good intentions of baking mini cakes.  :-)  But...I just did chocolate for these.  Still a total win!  They are ADORABLE!!!!



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Gray Granite, Whisper White, Gold
Inks:  Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Gold Foil, Vellum, Gray Granite
Stamps: Heartfelt
Tools: Well Written Dies, Heart Punch Pack, Small Bloom Punch (Sale-A-Bration)
Accessories: Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, Heart Doilies

Aren't they so cute?!  Love all these little layered elements. 


Also love how high they are.  Having that high-domed lid makes these little guys so versatile!

Watercolored 3x3's...

I had so much fun watercoloring the other day, that I wanted to make some little watercolored notes.  Also...I LOVE the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and thought the sentiments from this would be the perfect stamp set to go with these notes. 



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Black, Whisper White
Inks:  Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, StazOn Black
Cardstock/Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Label Me Bold
Tools: Stitched Shapes Dies, Stitched Be Mine Dies, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Woven Thread Sequins

They were easy breezy to make.  I just cut out some squares from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with the 2nd largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Then just added some color, splattered it, and dried it with the heat tool.  Added that cute little floral die-cut & sentiment.  This stamp set is SO EASY to use!  Just stamp it in black on Whisper White, then cut it out.  And it looks like my fave white embossed sentiments on black cardstock! 

Here is a better look at them:

Petal Pink & Flirty Flamingo:


Mango Melody:

Seriously The Best Congrats!

Just a little watercoloring wash fun today!  Because everyday is better with some watercoloring, right?!  Hee. 



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Purple Posy, Basic Black
Inks:  Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Purple Posy, Vellum, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Seriously the Best
Tools: Sweet Silhouette Dies, Aqua Painter

I kept the whole card simple, because I just loved the watercolor wash so much.  😀   I love this dandelion die-cut from the Sweet Silhouettes Dies.  I thought it was the perfect little accent. 


I stamped the "congrats" greeting in VersaMark ink onto Vellum cardstock, embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, and then fussy cut it out.  I'm pretty much in love with how it looks on this card.  😍


Love that little touch of ribbon under the "you did it!" greeting also.  😀

Hello Fabulous!!!

Love this little Clear Tiny Treat Box!  They are so quick and easy! And adorable (especially embellished with the Best Dressed Suite)!!!!



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my store!)
Colors: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Soft Sea Foam
Inks:  Tuxedo Black Memento, BLENDS: Petal Pink Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Soft Sea Foam Light
Cardstock/Papers:  Shimmery White, Petal Pink, Best Dressed Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Dressed to Impress
Tools: All Dressed Up Dies, Label Me Fancy Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Banner Triple Punch
Accessories: Clear Tiny Treat Boxes

Perfect little Valentine for friends, or perfect little anytime gift for someone you are thinking about!  The boxes are 2"x2"x2".  Since the Designer Paper is 6"x 6", I just cut 2-1" strips.  Wrapped the first one around the bottom 3 sides.  Then cut the banner end in the other strip, and wrap around the top 3 sides.  Then add the focal point on top!  Easy, peasy!


 Here is the box in my hand so you can see its cute size!



A little tip...the 1/2" circle punch, easily punches the notch out to match the box!


Hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Would love to help you!  :-)

I. Love. Watercoloring.  I used Petal Pink on the flowers, then added some Flirty Flamingo to the middle of the flowers.

Meant To Be...TGIF 249:

Who is ready for another challenge today?!  I posted about a SHAKE IT Challenge earlier!  Now I have a themed challenge for you with a fun TGIF Challenge!  Ready to get started?!

Let's see if you can guess what the theme would be by seeing my card:


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my store!)
 
Colors: Rococo Rose, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Basic Black
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Light Rococo Rose Blends Marker, Light Bermuda Bay Blends Marker
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Thick Whisper White, Shimmery Whisper White
Stamps: Meant To Be
Tools: Stitched Be Mine Dies, Well Written Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon
 

Any guesses?!  Why yes!  It is a Valentine's Day Challenge! Yay!  Gotta love that!  What could be better than pink and hearts?!  Hee. 


I kept this card pretty simple today.  And truth be told...I just NOW realized my card looks like the image in the challenge square!  Hahaha.  Funny how that worked out.  Guess this layout stuck in my brain when I went to created.  😂

I think my fave part about this card are the stripes...I just drew them on with a ruler and the Light Rococo Rose Blends Marker.  Then I also used a blend to color some ribbon so I could have some Coastal Cabana ribbon.  I used the Light Bermuda Bay Blends Marker to do that. 


Then I just added this layered heart focal point and I was pretty much done.  I actually was going to add more, but ended up just liking the simplicity of this.  I wanted those stripes to pop.  😁  (Small tip on the small heart:  I stamped it onto Shimmery White cardstock.  Then I blended the ink with an Aqua Painter to make more subtle stripes on the heart.)


I hope you enjoy this challenge!  Just head over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along!  I can't wait to see what you make!

Thank you for visiting!  Please just let me know how I can help you!!!

It's Definitely a Fancy Friday!

I can't believe it!  I have been asked to join the Stampin' Fancy Friday Design Team and I. Am. So. Excited!!!!  This is a group of past and current Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team members, that participate in fun challenges to inspire YOU!  It is going to be a FUN journey and I am so excited to share it with you! 

This is how it works!  To kick off the year, we are doing a BLOG HOP--starting right now!  😀
Then...after this blog hop...we are shaking things up on the Fancy Friday Design Team!  This is our last official blog hop!  Each month we will be posting a challenge on the first Friday on Instagram & Facebook.  Throughout the month, we will be showing you our team projects!  And we want to see what you are making!  So please tag us or use the hashtag #stampinfancyfriday!  And make sure you are following Stampin' Fancy Friday on Facebook and @stampinfancyfriday on Instagram!  We can't wait to share all the creative fun with you!

Let's get started today!  This challenge is a fun one! Since we are shaking things up for 2020...it's time to officially SHAKE IT UP! 


SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my store!)
 
Colors: Pool Party, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Pool Party, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Thick Whisper White, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Subtles Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Thoughtful Blooms
Tools: Small Bloom Punch, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Heat Tool
Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
 

Make anything that SHAKES!  I made this multi-windowed Shaker card, and it is FUN to shake!  Also...can we talk about these flowers?!  😀  I have been LOVING this little bloom and the best part about it...you can earn BOTH the stamp set AND the punch for FREE!  Yes, that's right!  They are BOTH part of Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration that is going on RIGHT NOW!  Just look how cute they are!



I love this greeting that comes with this stamp set too!  Last convention that Stampin' Up! had, we talked about celebrating the small things in our lives, along with the big things.  Being more positive and recognizing the good we do is SO important!  I am sure I am not alone in recognizing what I do NOT do way more than recognizing what I am doing.  SOOOO...I am trying to work on that and celebrating/recognizing the GOOD.  So this sentiment helps me remember that.  I love it!  😍

This card was a lot of fun to make!  Here's one last look at the card, and then you get to keep hopping!  😁


Are you ready to SHAKE IT UP even more!  Well, lucky for you...you get to HOP on over to Krista's blog to check out her FABULOUS project!!!
