Jar of Love for Festive Friday FF0031

I have exciting news!  I am now a member of the Festive Friday Challenge Design Team!  You know I love a good stamping challenge and Festive Friday has some great challenges and I am so happy to be on the team. 

Ready for the Challenge?

What I love is that you can use either or both of the themes for your project.  This challenge runs until April 15, so you have lots of time to join in the festivities!  If you get really inspired you can enter up to 3 times.  

I was inspired by the Rainbow theme and a little bit by the Earth Day theme too.

Yes, it is a Rainbow bouquet of flowers!  I had so much fun cutting and arranging my flowers.  I used the Jar of Love stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits.  The colors I used for the rainbow: Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Call Me Clover, Pacific Point, and Highland Heather.  I finished off the card with Celebrate from the Celebrate You Thinlits.  I thought it was the perfect way to finish up the card.

One of the unique features of the Festive Friday Challenge is that each Design team project has a project tutorial.  HERE is the tutorial for my card.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge.

Hand Delivered for CCMC555

Are you ready for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge?  It is a color challenge and a little bit wild!

CCMC555

What do you think?  I was a little intimidated by this at first but once I started playing with the combination I liked it so much I made 2 cards using the colors.

I haven't used the Hand Delivered host stamp set in a while and I thought it would be fun to color her skirt using the colors. I used a mix of Stampin' Blends (Mango Melody & Calypso Coral) and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Markers. I love this image especially the stack of books.  This is so perfect to send to my book lover friends with a gift card to their favorite book store.

Wouldn't you love having a Melon Mambo bicycle with Calypso Coral tires and Mango Melody tassels and basket?  It was just so fun putting together the components of this bike.  The Bike Ride stamp set also has an adorable stack of books.

Happy April!

04-01-19_header_storage_by_stampin_up_na (2)

I am so happy it's April, a new month and it is going to be a great one, that's my plan anyway.  The last part of March was rough but I have high hopes for April!  

April is already off to a good start!  Today is the launch of the new Storage by Stampin' Up!®.   I will be spending some time figuring out how I want to use this new storage option and when i do I will share it with you!  I  love how flexible the storage is and look forward to many happy hours of organizing.  You can see and learn more about the new storage pieces HERE.

I also have a new card for you.  Did you get some of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty paper during Sale-A-Bration?   If you didn't, you still can, it is part of the DSP offering in the Stampin' Up!® annual catalog.  This paper pack is beautiful and delicate.  It can be a bit fiddly to work with since it is so detailed but oh it is so worth it!

AstheInkDries-Friend-April1

The Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper is sandwiched between a frame I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Framelits and the Sparkle Glimmer paper The frame is layered on a piece of Silver Foil and then on to a Thick Whisper White card base.  The silver foil butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlit Dies.

I added the friend  cut using the Well Written Framelits dies.  This card is simple and elegant and can be used for so many different occasions, wouldn't it make a beautiful wedding card?

Check out the new Storage by Stampin' Up! cause it is no April Fool's joke!
