TGIFC187- Sponge It!


 

Well Friends I am excited to be playing along with this weeks TGIF Challenge as it gave me the push I needed to cut in to the most beautiful paper ever!

This DSP is called Botanical Butterfly & you can only get it FREE! 
Yes folks, that's right this paper will only be available during the Sale-a-Bration promotion beginning in January or if you join my team you can get it in December. ;)

I have to admit I looooooove butterflies so I was pretty happy to see so many featured in the new product offering! 
I'm also a sucker for vintage vibe cards & sponging was always my go to technique to achieve that look.

We have to talk about that new double butterfly punch...L.O.V.E. Total must have! And that beautiful sentiment is from a brand new set called Strong & Beautiful.

I am offering an All About Butterflies class in January & I can't wait to have my friends make a card like this! 

It was so easy & fun to do! 

I just start by sponging the DSP with Soft Suede adding extra on the butterflies then I went back & added a little Coastal Cabana to the flowers. Of course we had to sparkle it up a bit by adding some Wink of Stella on the butterflies & the gold punched beauties just finished it off perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you head on over to see what the rest of the TGIFC Team created to inspire you!

Stamp a Stack Sample

Hey Crafty Friends!

I'm back today to share one of the cards we made at my last class.




I wanted to design something that had a bit of a rustic feel to it.

The Festive Farmhouse DSP was the perfect fit!
I sponged the tree with Garden Green & I also used Garden Green to stamp some Kraft paper I had in my stash. The gold reindeer added just the right amount of bling!

Don't forget to check out the product links below & thanks for stopping by today!

TGIFC186- Inspiration Challenge


Happy Friday Crafty Friends!!!
It's always super fun to get new stamps especially when they are sneak peeks 
of what's coming in the next catalog. 

 My hubby & I had the pleasure of attending Stampin Up's 30th birthday celebration in Orlando with 6000 of our closet friends, Lol! 
If you follow me on Instagram you saw some of our shenanigans.

Well one of the stamp sets we were given was "Humming Along". 
This set will be available for purchase in January & I couldn't wait to take it for a test drive.

 
  
And I loved it just as much as I thought I would!
Stampin' Blends & these stamps are just meant to be.  

But lets talk about another AMAZING product coming...Stitched Rectangles!!! 
Serious Must Have.

When I was playing with the idea for this card I knew I wanted to do a bit of a sunset background but I was on the plane coming home from Orlando & all I had were my Blends so I grabbed a stitched rectangle & worked lightest to darkest & then blended it all with light Daffodil Delight. 
Thinking it came out pretty good!

Ok well that's all I have for ya. 
Hope you play along with this weeks TGIF Challenge & peep all the fabulous cards our team has created!

Don't forget to check out the product links below & thanks for stopping by today!
