Hello! It is COLOR CHALLENGE time for TGIF Challenges this week! You know I love a good color challenge. This one was a bit of a challenge, but it was fun. You see...when I show you the challenge graphic...you will probably think of one specific holiday with these colors. So that made me NOT want to make something for that holiday, you know?! Hee. But I have to admit...I really love what developed...
Can you guess the color combo we are challenged to use this week?! Well let me help!
Now...you may be asking ... what is that fun, large, bold & graphic flower from?! Well ... unless you read the title of this post (haha) ... you may be a bit surprised! The stamp I used for this flower was the ladybug body from the Hello Ladybug Stamp Set!!! Say WHAT?! How?! Haha. Let me "show" you.
First...I stamped the ladybug body in Daffodil Delight. (I know...I changed it up a bit and didn't use Crushed Curry. This is just supposed to inspire you, not define you. Haha. Then I took the polka dot image that is supposed to be for the wings and stamped the body with it. The whole stamp is a bit big for the body, but since it is a photopolymer stamp, I simply "folded it" in half over my block and used the smaller portion. Here is a photo to helpfully help explain what I am saying better. 😊
Then I just punched out the ladybugs, and adhered them together. I added a circle (cut from Stylish Shapes Dies) to the middle of the now flower, and VOILA! Cute little ladybug flower...
Isn't that so much fun! Then just added a few layers and embellishments and I am in love! 😍
Look at that fun Pumpkin Pie ribbon! No...Stampin' Up! doesn't sell Pumpkin Pie ribbon like this. I just colored it with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker! I love this fun trick! The ribbon is actually the White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.
Now that I have shared my card with you...it is time for you to come play along with us! Hee. So head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to see what the other designers have made and to play along! Can't wait to see what you create!!!
Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help getting your hands on any Stampin' Up! supplies! Would love to help you with all your papercrafting needs!

Hello! How is your week going?! It's Wednesday! How does time fly so fast?! I swear it feels like it was just the weekend a second ago. But I have a fun mid-week pick me up! A yummy chocolate treat showing off in a cute Peekaboo treat bag!
I mixed up some products from Stampin' Up!'s July-December Mini Catalog for this treat bag, and I think they all work fabulously together! I LOVE the Textural Elements from the Boughs of Holly Suite, the Black & White Designs from the Halloween section of the catalog (that I colored with a Blending Brush!), and the Celebrate With Tags Bundle! Some of my favorite products!! Just look at this fun tag...
Did some ombre blending by just always starting my blending from the bottom of the paper, and working my way up. Then adhered it to the tag that was die-cut using the Celebrations Tags Dies. The greeting was embossed on Coastal Cabana cardstock then just cut out with scissors. (The "thanks" is from the Season of Chic Stamp Set that is in the Annual Catalog. I LOVE this whole bundle!) Layered it all together with the Textural Elements, Linen Thread, and For Everything Fancy Sequins. 😍😍😍
It was the perfect tag to add to these DARLING Peekaboo Treat Bags! Just had to quickly "dress up" the bag a bit. But all I did was some quick stamping on the corners of the bag...
I love how it just all comes together...
What do you think?! What is your favorite part?! I think my favorite part is the ombre Designer Series Paper. Have you ever colored your Designer Series Paper before?!
It's an Inspiration Challenge this week for our TGIF Challenge! It is a fun one ... and just happens to be perfect for this week! Here ...
Well it may be the first day of Nov, but it is time to share Octobers Fancy Friday Challenge! Have you followed along all month?! It has b...
