It's A Bird's Eye View for a CASE with Stampin' Fancy Friday in July!

Hello!  It is a CASING challenge for this month over with Stampin' Fancy Friday!  I LOVE these challenges!  They are so much fun!  Because all you have to do is find a card that inspires you from the Stampin' Fancy Friday Design Team and CASE them!  I ♡ LOVE ♡ these challenges because there are SO. MANY. AMAZING designers on this team!  The hardest part is deciding which designer to case!  

Today I am going to show you my card first, and then I will show you what card I CASE'd!  So let's start looking!




I LOVE the bird set in Stampin' Up's 2023-2024 Annual Catalog called Bird's Eye View. It is just so dang cute!  This set is the star of the show in this card! 

I will share a few more photos of the details of this card, but first ... here is the card that I CASE'd.  I found this card that my dear friend, Martin, made, and I just had to use it!  I think you can see why when you see it...



How cute is that?!  Yeah...I loved it too!  Hee.  I want to CASE this card using a bunch of different stamp sets! But...until I can...here are some photos of the details of the card that I did make...





I hope you love this card as much as I do!  It was certainly a lot of fun to make!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  And go follow along to see what all the fabulous designers on the Stampin' Fancy Friday Design Team made!  Stampin' Fancy Friday on Facebook or @stampinfancyfriday on Instagram!  Then play along with us and post your own project and tag us! Can't wait to see what you make! ♡

Zany Zoo Sunshine ... TGIF Challenge #431!

 Another fun inspirational challenge this week for TGIF Challenge #431!  I am loving these fun and happy challenges this week.  This weeks inspiration is about one of my fave things...the SUN!  😊  Take this and run with it...use the colors from the challenge, the theme, something about your fave activity to do in the sun ... just go where it takes you!  Here is the card I ended up with ...

Colors Bubble Bath, Lemon Lolly, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie
Inks: Lemon Lolly, VersaMark, Assorted Blends Markers
Cardstock/Papers: Basic White, Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper, Basic Black
Stamps: Rays of Light, Circle Sayings (greeting)
Tools:  Nested Essentials Dies, Heat Tool
Accessories: Adhesive-Backed Sequin Trio

I am LOVING the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper.  One day when I was watching a movie, I just cut out all the little animals from this paper.  I have been wanting to use them for awhile, so I started with this challenge!  Look how cute they are!  And all outside enjoying the sun!  I stamped a little sunny "window" that is a fun little detail.  I actually stamped it on a back layer, and then die-cut the shape out of the top layer, embossed it, and adhered it with dimensionals so the sun was peeking out.  It was pretty fun to do!




I hope you enjoy this card!  I can't wait to see what you make!  Just head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog and submit your card to play along with us!

Delightfully Eclectic Birthday Tag ...

We just celebrated my daughter's 10th birthday!  As part of the festivities of her birthday, I actually had a present for her & her friend.  I wanted them to feel special & I love how I can use my Stampin' Up! supplies to make a personalized detail to do just that.  My daughter's nickname is Boon, and she's been loving her nickname these days.  So I made a tag for these gifts, in her fave color.  And for her tag, I used her nickname instead of her real name.  Nothing crazy & time consuming, but she LOVED it and loved seeing her nickname in "print." 



Colors Fresh Freesia, Basic White
Inks: Fresh Freesia, Bubble Bath
Cardstock/Papers: Fresh Freesia, Basic White, Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Holographic Trio Paper, Vellum
Stamps: Cheerful Daisies
Tools:  Nested Essentials Dies, Alphabet A La Mode Dies
Accessories: Brushed Brass Butterflies

I really love the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper pack.  SO. MANY. FUN designs!  I added a layer of vellum over the paper to tone it down and make her name pop more.  And added a strip of the Holographic Trio Specialty Paper under her name.  Can we talk about HOW MUCH I LOVE the Holographic Paper?!  It is SO MUCH FUN!!! And gorgeous.  It shimmers and shines and changes in all the light.  

These gifts were so much fun!





Hope you enjoy this!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  I would be happy to help you with all your paper crafting needs!

Delightfully Eclectic for Father's Day!

Sorry this is late in posting, but I made a few cards for Father's Day that I just want to share.  And ☆BONUS☆ ... they could EASILY be switched around for any occasion that you need a card for!  It is simply cardstock, designer series paper, a punch, and a greeting...with a little bling! And using a fun paper pack, like I used the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper for these cards, adds such variety!  I made all four of these cards in about 20 mins! 

Colors Basic White, Soft Sea Foam
Inks:  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
Cardstock/Papers: Basic White, Soft Sea Foam, Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper
Stamps: He's All That
Tools:  Bough Punch
Accessories: Tinsel Gems Three-Pack

 Here are a few more photos of the individual cards ... 




And just a quick pic of the greeting detail ...

And look at all the fun patterns that come in the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper ...


I love these cards and can't wait to make more myself with all the patterns.  😍
