You are Amazing

Hi Stampers! Today I have a card I designed for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday.

Challenge #317. Optional Theme : A Ray of Sunshine

What a great challenge to get you to thinking! Wouldn’t you agree?

This is what I came up with –

libbystamps, stampin up, All Things Thanks, Sunburst Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, TSOT

I think I got it right on the mark! It’s simply fun! Bright too! You almost need sunglasses!

I like the addition of the 2 circles, one in front of the starburst, the other behind. The retired Stampin’ Up Cloudy Day embossing isn’t half bad either! It added just what the card needed!

I hope that I inspired you to create a card using a Ray of Sunshine as your starting point to join us this week! You can link up on our blog  or on our Facebook page – so, you have no reason not to show us a project!

Sweet Strawberries

Happy Tuesday!

Time for a Try Stampin’ on Tuesday challenge.

This week we have a sketch designed by Donna –

Challenge #315. Optional theme : Three Different Patterns.

What a creative sketch! I was inspired to create this –

libbystamps, stampin up, strawberry, TSOT#315, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Fruit Stand DSP, Tasty Treats DSP, Occasions Mini 2017, Sale-a-Bration 2017

I loved pulling out some – FREE with a $50 purchase and – soon-to-retire DSP – Designer Series Paper to create this fresh’n fruity card!

libbystamps, stampin up, strawberry, TSOT#315, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Fruit Stand DSP, Tasty Treats DSP, Occasions Mini 2017, Sale-a-Bration 2017

My ‘three’ patterns are the polka dot background paper from Tasty Treats, and the partial circle and strawberries from Fruit Stand DSP! Yes, those strawberries are hand cut from one of the patterns!!! How cool is that?

Side note, the Fruit Stand is a FREE option for a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Cool layout. Cool card using cool layout!

Please leave me a comment about your thoughts on the card. I’d love a read from you.

Hello Stylish Stems

I’m quite busy in planning cards for my March Card Buffet this upcoming weekend. Whew! Time flies!

Took some time out to design a card for Try Stamping on Tuesday. We have a cool sketch to follow this time around –

Challenge #313. Optional Theme : Beautiful Flowers

I had a card in mind just by looking at the sketch! Something fun and springlike –

libbystamps, stampin up, Any Occasion, Stylish Stems Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Inside The Lines DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, SAB, Occasions 2017, TSOT#313

Isn’t this great? I love it because it’s a little different from what is all over the interweb.

Of course, this is a favorite color combo of mine……

Notice the lovely background DSP? It’s FREE. Yes, free! Spend $50 from Stampin Up and you can select this as your free item because it’s Sale-a-Bration.

libbystamps, stampin up, Any Occasion, Stylish Stems Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Inside The Lines DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2017, SAB, Occasions 2017, TSOT#313

These die cut flowers really add some nice POP to this card! Both flower shapes come in the set.

Hard to tell in the picture, but I adhered just the round center to the black flower back. Either way, still a lovely card! I think it will be on the Card Buffet this weekend!

Comments are always appreciated.

Cool Treats Birthday

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted. I’m trying to recover from last week and being so sick.

Since it’s Tuesday, it’s time for a Try a Stampin’ on Tuesday challenge –

Challenge #311. Optional Theme : Checkerboard or Plaid

Pretty cool layout! Perfect for the Cool Treats Bundle –

libbystamps, stampin up, Designer Tee, Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Framelits, Tasty Treats DSP, 6x6 Glimmer Paper, TSOT#311, Sale-a-Bration 2017

Since we needed to use ‘checks’ – this paper was the way to go! It made for a really cute, sweet card!

libbystamps, stampin up, Designer Tee, Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Framelits, Tasty Treats DSP, 6x6 Glimmer Paper, TSOT#311, Sale-a-Bration 2017

I used some of the new glimmer DSP you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration for the sparkly ice cream scoops!!! They look yummy, don’t they? The repeated stamped sentiment is also a Sale-a-bration item too!!!!

You can see the other design team creation on our blog or Facebook. Come check us out! And, PLAY along with us!!

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!

Hugs Kisses

Tuesday finds me in a way more creative mood than Monday. I was SO itching to create something – anything. It just wasn’t happening. You ever have days like that?

Whew. I hope that feeling has passed……

We have a great – I mean super – layout from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday today –

Challenge #307. Theme: Hugs and Kisses

I just thought this was a great layout to create with!

I came up with this in no time –

libbystamps, stampin up, Labeler Alphabet, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Sending Love DSP, TSOT#307, Falling Petals EF

I love it! Fits the theme perfectly!

Language of Love Just for You

I’m feeling the love, how about you?

It’s Tuesday. Time for some inspiration for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!

We have a cool layout this week –

Challenge #305. Optional Theme : My Favorite Things

This is a stretch, but relating one of my favorite things to stampin is about my hubs. He speaks many languages and when we were dating, he would always say ‘I love you’ in different languages to me. I always thought that very sweet! He still does it from time to time, but it was soo impressive – as I only spoke english at the time!!

Ok. So. Translate that into making a card. No problem –

libbystamps, Stampin Up, Watercolor Words, Sending Love DSP Stack, Happy Heart EF, TSOT#305

This DSP stack works PERFECT!!!!

libbystamps, Stampin Up, Watercolor Words, Sending Love DSP Stack, Happy Heart EF, TSOT#305

This is a really fun mix of the card base, Soft Sky, and the bold Real Red and Whisper White colors in the DSP!

libbystamps, Stampin Up, Watercolor Words, Sending Love DSP Stack, Happy Heart EF, TSOT#305

And, yes, I fussy cut the stamped sentiment!  It gave this a little more pizzaz!

So, what do you think? This card speaks volumes of love in any language, right? Please leave a comment – I love to read your comments!

And, play along with us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday this week! You can join us on Facebook or our blog!
