can’t thank you enough…

04.23.2021…..Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for a recent Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It was a “Pretty Paper Challenge”, so the team members created projects showcasing some of the fabulous Designer Series Paper collections. The card I created was a great way to use up several of the DSP scraps that I had saved. I hope this inspires you to dig through that scrap box you have, and use up some of your favorite DSP!

The Stampin’ Fancy Friday members are group of past and continuing Stampin’ Up! Artisans bringing our followers a fancy monthly challenge to inspire them to get creative!

artisan design team – april 2021 – dandy garden…

04.18.2021…..Happy Sunday, everyone! I’m so excited to share my April monthly showcase projects for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! For this month’s projects, I was asked to use several of the products from the Dandy Garden Suite, from the January – June Mini Catalog!

There have also been a few changes to the way the Artisan Design Team is sharing projects this year. The team has been divided into three groups, and each group is assigned a different collection of products to create with. This means an even greater variety of projects and inspiration. And…instead of the monthly blog hops, the team will have a greater presence on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page and their Instagram account as well.

Be sure check out the rest of the team’s fabulous creations on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page at : https://www.facebook.com/stampinup

#tgifc311 – friendship…

04.09.2021…..Happy Friday, everyone! It’s already time for another TGIF Challenge! We love bringing you weekly paper-crafting inspiration, and are so excited to have you join us for this week’s Sketch Challenge…Slimline Card!

We want to see what you create with making a “Slimline Card”Slim line cards can be any dimensions that you choose, as long as they are “long and skinny” but there are a couple of common sizes that we have found (folded dimensions): Traditional Slimline – 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (fits standard business envelope), and Mini Slimline – 3″ x 6″.

This challenge should be a great one to spark wonderful creativity! We hope you have a chance to play along with us today! We would love to see what you create!

04.04.21…..Happy Easter Sunday, my stampin’ friends! This weekend, the temperatures have warmed up quite a bit! I know there’s still a bit of cooler weather around the corner, but it’s starting to really feel like Spring…or even summer! That being said, I decided it would be a great time to create a card with the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set! For the sentiment, I also decided to use the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp Set, which is one of the many products that will be retiring from the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I hope this card inspires you to create a bright, colorful Spring or Summer-themed card!
