Hello Friends!
I am saying a big T.G.I.F. today, it’s been a crazy week & I am really glad it’s almost over. 
But enough about that let’s talk about this weeks TGIF Challenge...

There are some fabulous flower making products coming out in the new catalog & if you checked out  all the beautiful creations the TGIF Design Team made for you this week I’m sure y’all will agree!
I am mixing a little sneak peek in with my card as well but those pretty little Purple Posy flowers are actually made with the Bouquet Bunch dies. 

This card features 2 of the new In Colors Purple Posy & Rococo Rose which I used to stamp & color my birds which are from the Free as a Bird stamp set.  I also have to point out those little vellum leaves which are punched from Perennial Essence colored vellum!

Well that’s all I have for now but make sure you visit & play along with us!

For Mom

Hello Crafty Friends!
Just wanted to quickly share the card I made for my mom...

I was super excited to get my pre-order products so I could cut in to this beautiful Mosaic Mood paper! This paper will be available in the 2019-2020 Stampin Up catalog.
 I’ll be back this week some more sneak peek projects so stay tuned!

 Well we have one heck of a challenge for you this week & holy cow did our design team bring their A game! 

I was super duper excited that my pre-order products arrived in time for me to make a little something...

 If you follow me you know I LLLLOOOVVVEE butterflies so the "Butterfly Wishes" stamp set was first on my list. I paired it with this beautiful sentiment from "To A Wild Rose".

Here's a closer look at  some of the details I added...

Do you see that hint of piercing on the sides of my card? There are a bunch of new dies in the upcoming catalog & this one is from a set called, Stitched Nested Labels.

The next step was to stamp that beautiful butterfly using the rock n roll technique & I used the black stampin write marker to color in the body then a bit of Wink of Stella. 
I knew I wanted to brayer on some Coastal Cabana but didn't want it to affect my pretty butterfly so I cut out a mask to protect it while I added the color.
And every card needs a little sparkle so I use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Welcome back & happy Friday!

It's time to be inspired by this weeks TGIF Challenge.

 Just in case your wondering what exactly is sepia anyway, here's what the inter web had to say about it...
A sepia tone is a reddish brown monochrome tint. When applied to a photo, it gives the picture a warm, antique feeling.

I love all things vintage so I was excited to give this challenge a try. 
Hopefully you will be inspired by the teams fabulous creations over @!
