I am Thankful for You

I am thankful that you stopped by today! I have a card I designed for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. Here is our new sketch for the week –

Theme : Fall Fun

I went to play with the Quilt Builder Framelits again! This time, I combined them with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP). They worked so well together –

Isn’t this just so pretty?? I love this!

This trio of pumpkins was cut from one of the sheets of DSP. Actually, the reverse side is this little square pattern! They combined beautifully.

I did flip my design from the sketch because it just worked better with the pumpkins. Sometimes you just have to do that in these layouts.

So. What will you create using our sketch? See what the other Design Team members created on our blog, Try Stampin on Tuesday. Want to link up a card? You can do that on our blog or on our Facebook site as well.

Kewpie Girl, Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Yes, the title is funny!!! But, wait until you see the card!

I designed this for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday today. We have a new bi-weekly sketch, #335, that just came out today –

I love these simple sketches!

I pulled out the Birthday Memories DSP (Designer Series Paper)……

Happy Blooming Birthday

So, it’s time for a new two-week challenge from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday –

Challenge #321. Optional Theme : As the Garden Grows

This is a great theme and layout as things are blooming everywhere! So, why not a blooming birthday card??

libbystamps, stampin up, Flower Patch, Flower Fair Framelits, Softly Falling EF, Brights Collection DSP, TSOT

Isn’t this just the prettiest? I really had forgotten about this stamp set and framelits pair. Sadly, it’s about to retire from Stampin’ Up. I decided I needed to play with it a few more times before it goes to sit on the shelf so more!

The flower is actually two flowers layered together with a dimensional in between them. Of course, a few more behind the flowers and designer series paper layer too! Adds so much drama!

The embossed panel added just enough interest for the card. Makes it a little more dressy!

I created a fabulous card with the layout and the added theme. I hope to have inspired you! Please leave me a nice comment.

You can see the other Design Team cards for inspiration here on our blog . You can link up a card there or on our Facebook page as well! Looking forward to seeing you!

Overall, it’s just a pretty sweet card! Looking closely at it, you can see where I outlined the letter in a Stardust Gelly Roll pen. Those are wonderful!! Add such a nice touch of glimmer.

Cottage Christmas Card for TSOT

Quick post today for Try Stampin’ or not On Tuesday.

Here is the sketch we are working with –

Challenge #291

Optional Technique : Weaving

This one was a real challenge for me!

But, I persevered and came up with this –

libbystamps, stampin up, TSOT, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Word Window Punch, Teeny Tiny Wishes

I am so pleased with the way this card turned out. The layout just had me soo stumped!

I kept playing around with these papers and colors……whew.

Another view to see the detailing.

Anchors Away Birthday, TSOT#281

Happy Tuesday! Time for Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday challenges.

This week we have a nice layout to play around with –

Challenge # 281. Optional Theme : Anchors Away

I thought this layout was difficult at first until I pulled out my papers – it came together quite easily.

libbystamps, stampin up, Tin of Cards Stamp Set, Maritime DSP, Ovals Collection Framelits, Stars Framelits, Nautical, TSOT#281

I was even able to play along with the theme this time too!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tin of Cards Stamp Set, Maritime DSP, Ovals Collection Framelits, Stars Framelits, Nautical, TSOT#281

This DSP really helped with the theme to make a nice birthday card. I liked that one of the coordinating patterns was light enough to stamp on.

Silver Foil is always hard to photograph but my stars are just a shinning here.

This is a fun sketch to try. Head over to Try Stampin’ Or Not On Tuesday and see what the other designers created. Play along with us on Facebook too!

A wonderfully fun layout I must say. It took me no time at all to come up with this –

These colors work so well together.
