Woot! It's TGIF Challenge time! What is this, you may be asking?! Well...once a week the TGIF Challenge Design Team (yes! I am on this fabulous team!!!) hosts a challenge. And you have all week to make a project using the challenge as inspiration! And the design team posts samples they have made to give you more inspiration! Then you just upload your creation on the TGIF Challenge Blog! We even vote for a winner for the week! 💗 So want to play along this week?! Yay! Because this week is even MORE fun! It is a Designer Take Over Challenge week!!! This means that someone on the design team is "taking over" our challenge! This week...it is Stesha Bloodhart that is taking over! Yay! She's AMAZING!!! 💗
Can't wait to share this challenge with you, but first up...want to see the card that I made for the challenge?!? Well here you go!!!
Can you guess the challenge based on this card?! Well here is a graphic that may help you figure it out. 😀
It is a Mad For Plaid Challenge!!!! How fun! So I used the Best Plaid Builder Dies and the Buffalo Check Stamp to make the plaid background.
Then I used the ☆ FABULOUS ☆ Dandy Wishes Dies to create the focal point! Love these! I die cut the flowers in white then used the new Blending Brushes to add some color. I love the more subtle look and variation of color!
I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions for me! If you don't...just head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along with us!
Thank you SO MUCH for visiting! If I can help with anything...please be in touch! 💕

Quick post today to share a quick card! I will be making hundreds of these throughout the year, so it had to be simple! (And quick to make!) My first batch was about 105! 💖 Here was my first step...some fussy cutting!
I stamped the bubble and then the greeting from the NEW "You Are Amazing" Stamp Set & then cut them all out! Then I added them to the cards! I did a couple different color combos...and can't decide which one I like the most! 😁
Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness
I stamped the bubble in Pool Party and the greeting in Bermuda Bay for both of the cards. Then the stripes on this card are: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, & Granny Apple Green.
The stripes on this card is Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, and Magenta Madness:
I LOVE the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder & I LOVE the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins...and LOVE them even more on this card. 💕
What do you think? Do you like to mass produce or just make one/a few cards?! These actually have been a lot of fun to make. (Although I am only about 100 down...will have to do this a few more times throughout the year.) But I do NOT do bows of any kind on cards that I have to make this many of! Haha. What tips do you have for mass production?!
Thanks for visiting! Let me know if you have ANY questions!!!

Just a quick card today...super perfect to mail...using a *NEW* Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set! Which means...you can earn this stamp set FREE with a qualifying order! Check out the Sale-A-Bration catalog to see all the things you can earn free...after you check out this card! 😀
This was a fun card to make, just using a lot of ink for texture. There is sponging, embossing, and splattering!
First...I used the polka dot mask from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks & the *NEW* Blending Brushes!!! (In the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!) to sponge some polka dots in Gray Granite ink.
Then I made a little heart mask from a piece of Vellum Cardstock to sponge the hearts in Just Jade.
I love this inked layered look. It creates so much texture without a ton of layers. I did add a few layers of cardstock cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions on anything! Would love to help you with any of your papercrafting needs!

It is time for another challenge! A TGIF Challenge! Yay! This one is a fun one too, AND I used NEW product from Stampin' Up!'s NEW January-June 2021 Mini Catalog AND the NEW Sale-A-Bration Brochure! Plus I mixed in something from that Annual Catalog. Who wants to see?!
What do you think?! Look at these fun blooms! I LOVE this Pretty Perennials Bundle! It is so much fun! And mixed with the Buffalo Check Stamp Set...well I just love the fresh and fun vibe. And that Buffalo Check Stamp Set is the whole purpose of this card...because that is what the challenge is about! Background Stamps!
Also...something else that is fun about this card...it is Sale-A-Bration time! Which means FREE stuff! This greeting comes from one of the stamp sets that you can earn FREE, Heal Your Heart! And I love the different panels of the background stamp...just a little touch of texture and uniqueness. 💕
I love these layered blooms!
And one last look at the full card!
What do you think?! I hope you play along this week! Just head to the TGIF Challenge blog to play along! Please let me know if you have any questions! Would love to help you with any of your crafting needs!

Just a simple post today to share a quick but darling birthday card! 💕I want to be better about sending out birthday cards this year...so going to be making lots of this type of card hopefully. Hee.
Have you ever used your Blends Markers to color on Crumb Cake cardstock? I love the look of the colors like this. I stamped, colored, splattered, and then embossed it.
Hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Happy New Year! Welcome 2021!!! Anyone else as ready for this new year as me?! 🙌 Today is a day of CELEBRATION... so here's to celebrating YOU...2021! 😀💕And all of us that made it through 2020!
Colors: Basic Black, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana
Inks: Memento Jet Black
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana
Stamps: Friend Like You
Tools: Tailored Tag Punch
This card turned out differently than I set out to do...but ended up just going for a BOLD start to the year! And since it is a Black & White Challenge...that makes sense, right?! 😉
I LOVE this Tailored Tag Punch. Just so much fun to use a million different ways! I love the geometric pattern created here by just punching and adhereing to cardstock.
Isn't it so much fun?! And even though it is a black & white challenge... I just had to add a pop of color...and one of my fave colors, of course! You can't start a new year without a POP of color, right?! 😁What color would you choose to start the year off with?! Coastal Cabana for me!
Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you are all having a great start to your year! Please let me know how I can help you and what I can do for you! Would love to help you with any of your paper crafting needs!
