Wacky Watercooler Spring Fever February Blog Hop

I’m back for another fabulous blog hop of paper crafting talent with the Wacky Watercooler!

2017-february-spring-fever-banner

Our theme this month is Spring Fever! And, boy did I catch it!

I’ve been itching to play with the new Window Box Thinlits and the Basket Bunch stamp set. I think they’d make a great combination! And, they did. Just look at what I created –

A sweet little basket just filled with mini cards!!! I used half, or one, of the basket pieces to create this basket.

Here are the cards individually –

Who doesn’t love a chocolate bunny???

Of course you have your Easter eggs.

And let’s not forget about carrots. Carrots are very springy!

The cards are all 2×3, perfect for tags or little ‘love’ notes!

The basket grass was adhered with dimensionals to give a 3D or stacked appearance.

You just can’t help but smile when you see them!?!?! Perhaps that’ll help you overlook the fact you have to fussy cut them……sometimes you just have to pull out those scissors and just say, ‘cluck it’ and just get to cuttin’!

I got you to laughin’, didn’t I? Yes, tell me about it – I love comments!

I said this is a terrific sketch. Check out what the other design team members created and join our challenge this week. You can submit your cards on our Facebook page.

This is nice, Clean And Simple with sparkle theme??

I think I hit the mark here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, WWC106

Nice, huh? Very sparklyE!

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, WWC106

It was quite simple to create having this die cut focal point! I just stamped the birthday sentiment and placed glimmer paper between the layers so it would show through! How easy is that??

The finishing touch was this wonderful ribbon you can get FREE with Sale-a-Bration! You get two in a pack, for free – one silver, one gold!!!! Both are soo beautiful!!!

This die cut is a bundle along with the stamp set! That can’t beat that!

Stylish Wish Birthday

I have a fun and bright birthday wish today for try Stampin’ on Tuesday.

We have a new challenge –

Challenge #309. Optional Theme : I Wish…..

This is what I created –

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

Nice. Bold. Bright!

I combined three different product lines here : the 2016-2017 Idea Book and Catalog, the 2017 Occasions Mini and the 2017 Sale-a-bration catalog!

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

Altogether, they created a wonderfully bright fun card! These focal points are from the mini. I punched out circles and then die cut them.

libbystamps, stampin up, Better Together, Stylish Stems Framelits, Carried Away DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, sab, TSOT#309

This sentiment is from a great collection of several sentiments, Better Together. (When I decided what color to stamp it in, I debated between the Memento and Basic Grey, Looks like I should have gone with the Memento…oh well…)

In person this is a really fun card! What do you think? I’d love to read your comments!

And, you can see what our design team created on our blog or our Facebook page. You can also play long in either place too!

Galentine Day

Just makin’ a silly card for Galentine Day**!

I ran across this sketch for TGIF Challenges that really caught my eye –

I love the focal point up in the corner!

I played around with a few things but ended up really liking this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Labeler Alphabet, Layering Circles Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Sending Love Glassine Sheets, Galentine's Day, #tgifc94

It’s fun, non Valentine.

libbystamps, stampin up, Labeler Alphabet, Layering Circles Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Sending Love Glassine Sheets, Galentine's Day, #tgifc94

I created the layer for the corner. I die cut a scallop circle that I wrapped around that corner.  The circle is made from those Sending Love Glassine sheets (page 14) from the Occasions Mini. I bet you didn’t even notice them did you? I flipped it over so you don’t really see the pattern on them.

It made a perfect canvas to stamp my word, G A L E T I N E on!

libbystamps, stampin up, Labeler Alphabet, Layering Circles Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Sending Love Glassine Sheets, Galentine's Day, #tgifc94

It’s simply a fun card!

I think I’ll give it to my daughter later for our Galentine lunch!

Comments are always welcomed and a joy to read!

**Galentine’s Day is a holiday Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope created that occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. As Leslie herself explains on the show: “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year.

Birthday Wild

Currently I am creatin’ when I can……it’s a busy, busy, busy week….

I have a Card Buffet next weekend and challenge alway seem to help me figure it out!

I liked this challenge from a Facebook group, Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild

16681482_10211173702715062_1569638146832970015_n

It’s just a classic layout!

In no time I created this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Milestone Moments, Bold Butterflies Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Falling in Love DSP, Card Buffet, SGGW

It’s such a sweet birthday card! This DSP really helped to create a fabulous card without effort!

libbystamps, stampin up, Milestone Moments, Bold Butterflies Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Falling in Love DSP, Card Buffet, SGGW

The circle focal point I did move to the other side (from the sketch) because it just looked better over the sentiment. The font of this sentiment in Milestone Moments matches this paper perfectly! Sometimes that’s really hard to find just the right stamp!

And, I also used dimensionals to raise the focal point a bit.

What do you think? We have a winner? Would this be a great choice on the Card Buffet next weekend? Comments are always welcomed!
