TGIF Challenge - 100!!! Lifting Me Up...

Can you believe we are at the 100 TGIF Challenge?!?!?!?  WOWSERS!  Time flies when you are having fun!  This week is a special week too...it is a DESIGNER spotlight!  But not just any designer... the designer we are spotlighting this week is an amazing one.  She's actually the FOUNDER of these challenges, and she's definitely deserving of a celebration!  So let's do her proud this week!  :-) It's an easy challenge also...I could just totally copy all her projects.  She makes such fun things!  But for this week's challenge, I took the basic layout of this card...


Seriously...how fun is this card?!  I love it!  The white space, how she layered the focal point, the fun pieces she uses but still keeps it clean and bright.  So with that in mind, here is my take...


This is such a fun card layout that I am sure I will use over and over. 

Colors: Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Carried Away Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Lift Me Up
ToolsBig Shot, Up & Away Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch
Accessories: Delicate White Doilies, Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Sprinkles Embellishments

And can I just say...I LOVE THIS BUNDLE!  It's the "Lift Me Up" bundle that comes with the stamp set and coordinating Thinlits.  Side note on the paper strip I used...it is from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper.  This paper coordinates BEAUTIFULLY with this bundle, because a lot of the patterns have hot air balloons on it.  But it is only available until March 31st and you can't buy it!  You can only earn it with Sale-A-Bration FREE!  So....get those final orders placed so you don't miss out!  Drop me an email: designwithink@gmail.com or shop 24/7 on my website: www.ashleyvancamp.stampinup.net

Here is another pics of the details...


Now it's your turn!  Head on over to the CHALLENGE BLOG to play along!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Let me know if you have any questions on anything! designwithink@gmail.com

Fun With Sale-A-Bration...

I have a few projects to share with you tonight.  Wanted to share a couple things I have made with some of the fun Sale-A-Bration exclusive items... the Tasty Treats & Reverse Words stamp sets along with some of the Carried Away Designer Series Paper & the Sparkle Embossing Folder (which, as of today, is FREE until March 31st with a qualifying order)...


Don't worry...I have some close-up photos for you.  :-) 


Colors: Watermelon Wonder, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral
Cardstock/Papers: Watermelon Wonder, Watercolor Paper, Carried Away Designer Series Paper, Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Tasty Treats
ToolsBig Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits
Accessories: Gold Sequin Trim, Whisper White Baker's Twine

I LOVE this truck!  It's so much fun!  I used watercolor wonder pencils to color that sweet truck in....and then just added a few layers with some Designer Paper and sequins.


I love this next project...


Colors: Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers: Bermuda Bay, So Saffron, Whisper White Carried Away Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Tasty Treats
ToolsBig Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Sparkle Embossing Folder
Accessories: Gold Thread, Gold Binder Clips, Calypso Coral Baker's Twine, Delicate White Doilies

Fun little treat bag with a tag on front.  I saw a card like this online and decided to turn it into a treat bag.  Thought it was fun to use the trucks like this...a quick and easy way. 

I even embossed the treat bag...with one of the Embossing folders you can earn FREE until March 31st!  Seriously one of my most used and favorite embossing folders EVER...


And the last project...


Colors: Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Whisper White Thick, Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Reverse Words, Designer Tee
Tools: Triple Banner Punch, Stapler, Confetti Stars Punch

Super quick and simple card using the Reverse Words stamp set.  I know the Glimmer Paper I used here is now sold out, but you can easily replace with the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. 


***QUICK TIP*** on adhering the stars easily.  Punch out some stars from Glimmer Paper with Confetti Stars punch.  Add very LIGHT drops of the liquid Tombow glue where you want the stars.  Pick up a star and drop into the glue (so you don't touch the glue and get sticky fingers!).  Then just press the star down with the tip of your scissors.  Easy, Peasy and mess free!!



Hope you enjoy these projects!  I had a ton of fun making them!  Let me know if you have any questions on anything!  And let me know how I can help you get the supplies you need for your projects!  Don't miss out on the Sale-A-Bration fun!  designwithink@gmail.com

TGIF Challenge - 99 Foxy Hello...

It's Challenge Day!  I love these challenges.  This week is a theme challenge...


Make anything that inspires you from this!  Anything for baby, or even the colors, or whatever!  Head on over to the challenge blog and play along!  TGIF Challenge 99

But first...check out what I created with the theme...


ColorsSmoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Silver, Whisper White
Cardstock/PapersSmoky Slate, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Foxy Friends
ToolsBig Shot, Layering Circles Thinlits, Fox Builder Punch, Heat Tool
Accessories: Silver Sequin Trim, Whisper White Embossing Powder

I finally used this fun "Foxy Friends" bundle!  Such a fun set of products...stamp set, coordinating punch, and even a coordinating paper stack!  Love it!  Will definitely be playing more with these fun products!


I mean really...look at that fox!  Here I just stamped him on a circle cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.  Then stamped an extra fox head and punched it out with the Fox Builder Punch and layered it on the body.  


I love embossing with White on Black cardstock for greetings.  So much fun!  And check this out.  I received some cards from my upline this week and really loved the layout of this one card.  Well...I couldn't wait to CASE (copy and share everything) the card, so I took the opportunity for this challenge!  Here is this card next to the card I CASE'd!  


Don't always feel like you have to "re-create the wheel" when you are crafting.  I love to see new takes on things already out there.  

Hope you enjoy this card!  Head on over to the challenge blog and participate! Please let me know if you have any questions or need to order any Stampin' Up! supplies! designwithink@gmail.com
