#TGIFC304 Sale-A-Bration Inspiration Challenge

 


Hey peaches and thanks for joining me for another fun TGIF challenge this week! If you're new to the TGIF Challenges, each Friday, we offer a new themed challenge for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the main blog for more details, inspiration, and the guidelines. This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge and I'm super excited to share how I was inspired by the new Sale-a-Bration Catalog!

My card for this week's challenge was made using the Berry Blessings Bundle. Here's my submission:
I just adore this bundle (pictured below)! There are so many beautiful patterns in the Berry Delightful DSP, and the Berry Blessings stamp set has some super sweet images and coordinating sentiments. One of my favorite aspects about this freebie is that it is designed to pair perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle.:
BERRY BLESSINGS BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
I have been playing around with different layouts, and I really enjoy ones that showcase DSP without it overpowering the entire design. I inked the blueberries in Pacific Point. I also used this color, along with Balmy Blue, to watercolor my background.
Here's a close up of the details:

#TGIFC300 Inspiration Challenge

 


Hey peaches and thanks for joining me for another fun TGIF challenge this week! If you're new to the TGIF Challenges, each Friday, we offer a new themed challenge for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the main blog for more details, inspiration, and the guidelines. This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge and I'm super excited to share how I was inspired by the new Mini Catalog!
My card for this week's challenge was made using the Lots Of Heart Bundle. Here's my submission:
There were so many beautiful ideas to be inspired by in the new Mini Catalog. One of my favorites was on page 15, featuring the Lots Of Heart Bundle (below):
LOTS OF HEART BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
I tried to keep the layout and design much the same as the original. However. I changed up the color scheme. I used Bermuda Bay Cardstock with Coastal Cabana peeking through the die cut area. I decided to make my version into a Mother's Day card. I used Granny Apple Green Ink for my sentiment as I love how it pairs with aqua tones.
I also made a mini 3x3 lunch box note version as well, this time in the original color schematic:

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Posted For You


Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Posted For You Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I CAN NOT BELIEVE that this is the 2020 team's FINAL hop! It's been such an amazing experience and I really am genuinely surprised how fast it flew by. I'll be leaving information on the incoming team at the end of this blog so be sure to check that out. They are an AMAZING and talented group of designers! For now, be sure you hop along with us as we feature the Posted For You Bundle. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using products from the  Posted For You Bundle. This set, I'll admit, was not one I was initially drawn to, but after playing with it, I'm convinced that it is a must have! The images are so detailed and fit perfectly with the coordinating postage stamp-shaped punch, and the font is beautiful, like elegant calligraphy. Here's a look at the set:
POSTED FOR YOU BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
I'm going to start with my favorite of the two projects that I made today. I started by using Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the first layer of my card. I used Whisper White Craft Ink to stamp the round stamp in the background and to add a little splatter to the background for a little extra texture. I also made a coordinating envelope that was stamped in Petal Pink.
Here's a close-up of the details for the first card (below). I like to create a little extra interest and texture to my projects by adding a few ink splatters. For a bold effect I use my Whisper White Ink Refill, along with my Water Painter to flick on some white splatters. You can even add a little White Emboss Powder on top for a quick way to seal the splatters to avoid smearing.
For my next card, I started with another gray base but instead used the Scripty Embossing Folder to add detail and texture to it. I colored the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron Blends. For a little elegancy I used the Forever Gold Specialty Paper. If you flip it over, it's just white so you can make it any color with your inks to customize it for any project.
I leave you with a few close-ups of the tags below:
As I said this gorgeous bundle was not initially at the top of my list but after playing with it, I just adore it! It has so many beautiful details and the possibilities are endless. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Snowflake Splendor

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Snowflake Splendor Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!
Today, the team will be showcasing projects using products from the Snowflake Splendor Suite. The Snowflake Wishes Bundle from this suite is just packed with delicate snowflakes, flurries of sentiments, and gorgeous detailed dies. Here's a look at the set:
SNOWFLAKE WISHES BUNDLE (ENGLISH)
 My project today is a little gift box with 4 unique gift tags inside. The box itself was made using the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can make the dimensions smaller for a more compact box if you like but for my sample, I create a 5 7/8" x 4 1/2" x 1" (base) and 6" x 4 3/4" x 3/4" (lid). When you cut the paper, be sure to take into account the length of the sides of he base and lid before cutting.
Here's a close-up of the lid of the box (below). I used some Balmy Blue and Pool Party Cardstock to create the main label. I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue Ink. I also added some Blue Gems.
The tags inside use some of the same colors of cardstock, with the addition of Coastal Cabana. I also embossed one of them with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I used the coordinating dies to adorn them with dazzling snowflakes.
I leave you with a few close-ups of the tags below:
This gorgeous suite was as the top of my list from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and a great way to make fun, festive holiday projects for gifts, holiday cards, or parties. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share.

Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Curvy Celebrations Part 2

Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the second Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we will be showcasing projects from a promotion that feature two early-release products from the January—June 2021 Mini Catalogue, available from November 3rd-January 4th! You are going to love these fun products because this promotion offers customers an opportunity to purchase early, gives them a first glance at the look and feel of the new mini catalogue, and exclusive products perfect for Christmas crafting, so make sure you grab them while you can because they are only available for a limited time! You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Jan Clothier's Blog. She has made some lovely projects!


Here's a look at the products:
For the previous hop I had the pleasure of using the Quite Curvy Stamp Set (154430) and the coordinating Curvy Dies (154319). By the way, if you buy the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (Item 158396) you get a 10% discount on each item included in the bundle! It's a great deal! They are just fab for crafters of every level. You can easily use the images to stamp a simple background and greeting for a simple look or take it to the next level and add layers of beautiful details with the fun curvy dies. Here is a look at the card I created in the previous hop using this bundle:
For my card today, I got to combine the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set (155364), the Curvy Dies (154319), and the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) (153489). You can save money and buy the whole Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (158396)! 

The design of this card was created with versatility in mind. I wanted it to be a sample that could easily be altered for a more simple version or, with a few more details/embellishments. more complex. I kept the color scheme monochromatic with a few touches of neutrals. I used some of the DSP for both my first panel layer and details on my card like the star, created with the Stitched Star Dies. I used the Memento Black Ink to stamp my curvy star border. Then I used my Mint Macaron Blends and my Soft Sea Foam Blends. I stamped a few sprigs with Just Jade Ink and die cut a few sprigs in Shaded Spruce Cardstock.
Here's a close up:
It was so much fun playing with these brand new products! This is a limited time early release for these amazing Curvy Celebrations products. Customers can purchase Curvy Celebrations products starting 3 November 2020, so be sure to grab them soon so that you can start creating some samples to share with them!
