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!

Reindeer Games

Hello Again! 
I am home from spending a week in Orlando with 6000 of my Stampin Up friends & I'm excited to share a whole bunch of new stuff with you but while I get that prepared
I have another fun swap to share with you...

I loved this card so much it was part of my Holiday Stamp a Stack class & yes I fussy cut all their sentiments for them! My stampers are spolied, Lol.
Here’s a little tip- if you’re using those awesome 6x6 glitter sheets if you line up your deers just right you can get 5 per sheet. 


And even though it may not show up that well in the photo I just have to talk about my new favorite embossing folder called Subtle. It’s an absolute Must Have!!!

Check out the product links below & thank you for stopping by today!

2 Cards Today!


I love my Stampin' Blends & I have a box of stamped images on hand to color when I have a moment to play. Its been great to have these images ready for when I need to throw something together in a jiffy or to jump start my mojo.

Here are 2 cards featuring images from the Petal Palette stamp set. 




The first card was actually a swap I created for the last OnStage event & the second card I made for fun using this beautiful sentiment from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Spooky!

Hey Ya'll!
I wanted to share the Halloween project that I offered at class.


The Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin kit was so much fun I had to use the adorable stamps it came with. I found this really fun spiderweb netting at Dollar Tree & it cut fairly well with the Big Shot. Since the prep was the same for me I gave them the option of doing cards and/or goody bags. The goody bags were pre printed ones I had in my stash.

Hope you have a spooktacular day!

Halloween Swaps

Hey Crafty Friends! 
Its been awhile but I have decided to jump back on the blog wagon!
I have been sharing my creations on Instagram & I wanted to start sharing them here as well so here we go...


I created these for a holiday catalog swap. I loved this DSP & how I could cut out all these cute little witches! It took me a little time but I enjoy fussy cutting so it was a win win. I have listed the key products I used for these below if you're curious about that.

Thanks for stopping by & I promise to be sharing a lot more often!
