Weekly Challenge

Monday, May 25, 2020
Last weeks weekly challenge for my team was to make a Floating Card.
I sent them a short how-to video based on a card that I CASED from Amanda Bates 

Then I challenged them to make their own card using the fold concept and change it up
They had fun with it and seemed (for the most part) to like this type of fold.
Karen made another get well card for hers - and knowing Karen, she sends out a ton of cards to the people at church and I am sure that they are completely encouraged by it. She used the Perennial Essence Designer Paper which is on SALE on the Retiring List for only $8.05 (#149100)
The second card came in from Linda B and this is Linda's first time to join in on our challenge which makes me super happy. Linda actually made 2 cards using this fold and I see she added Designer paper to the inside of her cards which is very pretty 

Next we have a card from Vicki - I'm not sure on this DSP, but what friend wouldn't appreciate getting a card like this.
And Lynda's card: using the Ornate Garden DSP
Our next card is from Anna
Anna used Painted Poppies stamp Set and the coordinating Designer paper
This next card is from Shirley
Shirley used the Clubhouse stamp set and the coordinating Designer Paper
This next card is from Inez.  She did a flip on the orientation of her card and look how cute it turned out! She used BACK ON YOUR FEET stamp set and some retired Designer Paper. She even used 2 of our new In-Colors - Just Jade and Bumblebee
Rachel sent our last card for this weeks challenge 
Ohhh! this makes me wish for a Tropical escape

The Masked Singer

Friday, May 22, 2020
Wednesday night was the final episode for season 3 of the Masked Singer
Third Place was the Frog - I really thought it would come down to the Frog and the Turtle
Who was it? Rapper Bow Wow - not a fan of rap, but I thought his costume was my favorite this season
Here is my Froggy Card in his honor
Second place was: The Turtle! Who was it?  Jesse McCartney - it's just so crazy how much I love watching this show, but I don't know 90% of the contestants.
And here is my Turtle Card in honor of The Turtle (who I really thought would win this season)
I have this cute little turtle mounted on a large plastic spring so he wiggles, making it so cute!
This card was inspired by Stamp Art Connection
OK so I guess you guessed it that the Night Angel Won Season 3 of the Masked Singer
Who was she? Kandi Burruss
And here is my Angel Card in her honor - This is a card that I made several years ago during a punch art class. Not quite the same as the NIGHT Angel, but it's what I had :)

I hope you have enjoyed my Masked Singer posts

Weekly Challenge Part 2

Tuesday, May 19, 2020
I challenged myself to make a card a day using a stamp set that I have not used before for the team weekly challenge.
Yesterday you saw me using the SWIRLY FRAMES Stamp Set.
The next card that I shared with them is called SO INVITING
Every summer we host a neighborhood picnic so I decided to use this set for the invites
I teamed it up with the OUTDOOR BARBECUE Stamp Set - both of these sets are on the RETIRING LIST so get them now before it is too late
The next card that I shared uses the BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS Stamp Set and the card was inspired by Teri a demonstrator in the UK
The BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS Stamp Set s carrying over to the new Annual Catalog but the BEST DRESSED Designer Paper is on the Retiring List. The Happy Birthday stamp used is called LABEL ME BOLD and this set is also on the Retiring List. - I cannot stress enough to get these products before it it too late.
Next up I used a Stamp Set called MY MEADOW.  I have had this set ever since it was given to us at the OnStage event in November, and for some reason I just never took the time to pull it out. It is returning in the annual catalog so I still have time to use it in my classes.
There are a lot of little pieces so this would probably be a good set for an avid stamper
These cards were inspired by Gail Ellis
Next up is COUNTRY HOME
Now I have to give a disclaimer on this set because I did borrow this set from my friend for a couple cards, but when I knew it did not retire, I thought that I should purchase my own set.
This card turned out so beautiful and was inspired by Brandi Randall on Pinterest (no blog link)
The next stamp set is UNDER MY UMBRELLA - again I need to give you a disclaimer that I have used this stamp set BUT once again I borrowed it from a friend, and when I found that it was going to be in the new Annual Catalog I thought I should purchase my own set.
If you buy it NOW - you can buy the BUNDLE with the UMBRELLA BUILDER PUNCH for a 10% discount.
This will make a wonderful bridal shower card
The last card and stamp set unused is WIGGLE WORMS
This set and dies can be purchased right now for a 10% discount, but they are on the 
retiring list so get them now before it is too late
I'm expecting that this set will come in handy for some cute 
scrapbook pages as well as some darling kids cards.

On this last card I used the butterflies from BEAUTY ABOUNDS.
The other Stamp Sets used are BORN TO SHINE and VERY VERSAILLES.  
BORN TO SHINE is on the retiring list (the dancer is an outline image so I just 
filled it in with the Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend to make it a silhouette.
I was inspired by my recipe club friend, Rita Schwann, and I made this for Ava, Josh's 
14 year old daughter, for him to give her for her birthday.
Disclaimer: I have used Very Versailles many times as well as Born to Shine, 
but Beauty Abounds is new to me and I hadn't cracked the lid yet, and used it.

Weekly Challenge

Monday, May 18, 2020
Last weeks weekly team challenge was to make a card (or project) using a stamp set that they bought, but haven't used yet.
I'm sure we are not the only ones who buy a stamp set, and then there it sits, not getting any use.
This is the card that I shared with them.
Of course I have used the BACK ON YOUR FEET Stamp Set a lot, but I have never used my SWIRLY FRAMES Stamp Set so I thought that I would pair the two together.
I had to use the "mirror image" technique to make the giraffes face in opposite direction.
Here are the cards that my team came up with...
Lynda used a Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set from a couple years ago called Very Vintage. She teamed it up with the HANDWRITTEN back ground stamp. She is wondering why she hasn't used this stamp  set before. Handwritten Background stamp is on the retiring list so get it now before it is too late.
Next was Barb - she has been wanting to play with her BLOOM & GROW Stamp Set and decided to make 2 of them.

Carla made this next card using BLOSSOMING BASKET. She cannot believe she hasn't used this pretty set yet.
Brenda made this next card using TREEHOUSE ADVENTURE. She thinks that with 5 grandsons she will be using it a lot more.
Anna made this pretty card using COLORFUL SEASON, what a nice spring-feel card. She said that she likes the brown and pink color combo - me too!
Bonnie made her card using the WINDS OF CHANGE Stamp Set. She used 
Seaside Spray ink with Watercolor Pencils.
Janell's card takes 3 photos to give it justice. 
Take a look at this fun fold that doubles as a gift card holder

Rachel is a NEW TO US Demonstrator who re-signed up in March
FREE AS A BIRD is a fun stamp set for her because she 
has two little birdies at home named Sundae and Sherbet.
She makes in bulk because she sends a lot of encouraging cards
Debbie A. used BIKE RIDE Stamp Set - a perfect set for Spring/Summer
I've actually been on my bike a few times this Spring, but I am a 
fair-weather-friend and I pick and choose my days to enjoy being outside.
Debbie has done a great job selling her cards on line too.
Karen used MOUNTAIN AIR and said that she would have used this set earlier, but she had to purchase the larger clear block I. So if you are loving this set as much as I do                                    you will want to add Clear Block I to your order.
This is Juli's first time to participate in our weekly challenge so this is extra special
She actually had to place an order from her hospital bed and 
now that she is recovering she is able to participate
Such a fun-fold card. She used the Garden Lane Designer Paper 
and POSITIVE THOUGHTS Stamp Set

This next one is from Inez
Inez used the MY MEADOW Stamp Set that we received free when we went to the 
ONSTAGE event last November. It has a lot of little pieces, but the result is wonderful. 
The card is from Jodie - I remember this elephant stamp set, but never purchased it, and I cannot remember the name of the set - but nice job, Jodie!
I love this cute card that Susan sent for our challenge using the DINO DAYS Stamp Set

Vicki sent in our last card for the week using SWEET STORYBOOK. She said that she used this set once before, and now wishes she had purchased the designer paper that coordinated with it.  Let this be a lesson - get what you want NOW before it is too late.
