Gold Wish

Happy Tuesday, my friends! We’ve got a new design challenge at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!

Optional Theme : Foil

What a great sketch and with foil – perfect!

I pulled out one of my favorite papers, Broadway Bound because it has lots of foiled sheets in the package. I created this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Broadway Lights Framelits, Broadway Bound DSP, Gold Foil, TSOT

It’s super fun! A great birthday card!

Garden Impressions Hello


Got a share today designed for try Stampin’ on Tuesday!

Our newest challenge –

Optional theme : Vellum

Ok, I missed the vellum part….but, I nailed the inspiration layout!!

libbystamps, stampin up, Banners for You, Springtime Impressions Thinlits, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Garden Impressions 6x6 DSP, Soft Sea Foam, TSOT

Wouldn’t you agree? Although, the softness of this photo……looks like vellum is covering the whole thing!!!

I started with a favorite go-to color, Soft Sea Foam and added the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. This is actually the same sheet showing the two sides!

It’s accented in a Pacific Point flower from part of one of the flowers from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits. Yes, it was fussy cut to get just these flowers! I then backed them with Night of Navy and trimmed them closely. It added so much to the card!

The sentiment is from Banners for You and framelit cut with its coordinating framelit, Bunch of Banners, still a well used set for me!

Wouldn’t this card just make your day? I bet it would!

WISH. Big.

Happy Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Tuesday! We have a wonderful new sketch this week to inspire you –

Optional Theme : Bold Sentiment

I loved it! It inspired this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Broadway Bound Suite, Broadway Bound DSP, Lovely Lipstick, TSOT

Which just might be the inspiration for my Open House / Garage Sale on Saturday, June 23! This card is easily reproduced in mass and can be made quick using minimal supplies! Perfect for the fast pace of an Open House!

Both the Designer Series Paper and the die cut sentiment are from the Broadway Bound Suite. The paper is stunning with gold, silver and black on one side. Gorgeous coordination on the other side with Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist and Gray Granite.

I’m going to see how I can incorporate the colors to show case the new In-Colors. Here, I did it with Lovely Lipstick. Fingers crossed.

Happy Birthday from the Gang

Happy Tuesday! Got a wonderful share for Try Stampin on Tuesday today!

We have a new layout challenge –

Challenge #366. Optional Theme : Critter Crazy

I immediately went to this soon-to-retire stamp set, We Must Celebrate, from the Occasions Catalog because of all the cute animals!

libbystamps, stampin up, We Must Celebrate, Layering Ovals Framelits, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, TSOT,

I stamped the focal image. Then I realized it was slightly larger than the framelit I was using. No problem! I just cut around the ears, foot and tail of the animals to make it work! I love how those parts hang over.

To highlight the animals, I colored the background using the lighter Blends markers in Pool Party. This was accented by the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. Sadly, it recently went on the retired list, sold out quickly, and is no longer available.   

The other Design Team members created some wonderful cards on the Try Stampin on Tuesday blog. You should check them out.

You can create a card using our challenge and upload it to our blog or Facebook page. Hope to see you there!

Hello, Are You In?

Happy Tuesday! Time for a Try Stampin’ on Tuesday new challenge –

Optional Theme : Shades of One Color

Since Stampin’ Up is having a color revamping – this is a perfect time to showcase the new 2018-2020 In Colors!

I am featuring the new Blueberry Bushel here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Accented Blooms, Petal Palette, 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 Assortment, Tailored Tag Punch, TSOT, 2018-2020 In Colors

And the rest of the colors here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Accented Blooms, Petal Palette, 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 Assortment, Tailored Tag Punch, TSOT, 2018-2020 In Colors

Top is Grapefruit Grove and Blueberry Bushel. Lower row is, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch.

The two stamped sentiments are from a new upcoming stamp set, Accented Blooms. They’ll be available June 1st. The stamped dots are from the Petal Palette.

These cards, the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes are a new size too. They are for the Memories & More kits – makes making cards from the kits way easier. They will come in two sizes for the two sizes of cards in the Memories & More kits.

Here, I just cut the card, 3 1/4 x 8 1/2, then scored at 4 1/14. I did these myself because I like the fold at the top of my card. I’ll use the envelopes included in the kit for these cards.

The Designer Series Paper is in the new In Colors. And, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I can see this will be a popular item!

Check out the other lovely Design Team cards on our blog at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. You can link up a card there, or on our Facebook page if you’d like to join the challenge. It’ll go on for two weeks.

Amazing. Fabulous. Inspiring.

Happy Tuesday my friends!

Time for a new Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch –

Optional Theme : Butterflies

What a great mix of theme and layout!

I went with a Mom’s Day card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Yay You, Garden in Bloom, Apron of Love, Thoughtful Banners,Tutti-Frutti 6x6 DSP Stack, Stamparatus, TSOT

I am just overjoyed at how this turned out!

I created the banner flags first from the Yay, You hostess set. Inside each banner, I used the Garden in Bloom for the butterflies and the Thoughtful Banners for the sweet sentiments.

I repeated ‘Mom’ using the new placement tool, the Stamparatus, that will be available in June. It makes this sort of stamping soo easy!

So. What do you think? Isn’t this just the sweetest? I’d love to hear from you too.

Since this is a challenge, you can create a card and join us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday or link up on our Facebook page!
