Weekly Challenge

Monday, July 13, 2020
Our Weekly Challenge for last week was to take this challenge from our Stampin' Up! DDM, Shannon West.
Shannon attended our June meeting via ZOOM and shared this sample card and a video.
I encouraged them to make a card using her directions, but to change it up using a different stamp set, etc.
This is the card that I made and showed them to spur them on
I used the BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS Stamp Set, and the colors: Seaside Spray. Light Flirty Flamingo & Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blends for her dress. Dark Granny Apple Green for the grasses & Seaside Spray for the flowers. Her skin is Light Petal Pink. This image reminds me of our grand daughter, Gracie so had to give her some blonde hair with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend.

Janell made these first 2 cards only changing up the color of the ribbon. She used TIMELESS TULIPS Stamp Set in Purple Posy and Rococo Rose.
 Lynda made this gorgeous card using Tasteful Touches Stamp Set
Karen's card was made using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set. Kind of like Shannons but so much brighter in colors
This is Vickie's Card.Vickie used the Tranquil Tulips stamp set, which is  a 2-step stamping set, and was a SAB set a year or so ago.
Vickie also made a second card - this time she made a fun ocean view 
Barb sent this card, which has a wonderful fall feel to it. she used the new Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper behind her sentiment from So Sentimental
Anna made this pretty birthday card using the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set
Susan made this cool masculine card using the BY THE DOCK Stamp Set
Inez made a fun one with the SO HOPPY TOGETHER Stamp Set
This last card is from Chris who used the HIGH TIDE Stamp Set
I think that all of these cards turned out great! I love to see what everyone comes up with each week.

Senior Years Birthday

Friday, July 10, 2020
Sometimes you see a card and you just wonder if you could ever make one like it.
This card is like that.
I have made a few movement cards in my 12 years of being a demonstrator, and I will admit, that they are a little more time consuming than your average card, but this one by Anja Mesmer on Demonstrator Planning Place was just too cute to not give it a try.
She gave no instructions so I was on my own

What I changed up:

  • The sentiment.  Anja is from one of our European markets, so I really am not sure what she used but I'm pretty sure she used the sentiments that were included in the SENIOR YEARS Stamp Set
  • I changed up the colors - everything from the flowers to the clothing choices,
My front piece measures 7-3/4" x 3-5/8"
There is another piece of Whisper White that measures 7-5/8" x 3-1/2" - this one is adhered to the Basic Black (3-7/8" x 8")
The movement piece of Whisper White measures 2-3/4" x 7-1/2"
I used a 1" circle punch and the Classic Label Punch
Stamp Sets: SENIOR YEARS (#152630), GRACE'S GARDEN (#151513), SPECIAL SOMEONE (#151643) (for the flower she is holding in her hand) & ITTY BITTY BIRTHDAYS (#148618)

What I will say: "This is not a card that I will make duplicates of, nor do I plan to feature it in a class."
BUT - what else I will say - "This turned out SOOOOO Cute! and I am glad that I gave it a try!"

Hopefully you will be brave and give it a try too, and that the measurements that I gave you will help you out.

Dollar Days are BACK! For every $50 order you place you will receive a coupon code for $5 to spend during the month of August.

World of Good / Best Year

Thursday, July 9, 2020
Casing another great masculine card using the BEAUTIFUL WORLD Stamp Set, and the WORLD OF GOOD SPECIALTY PAPER. This one was inspired by Jackie Beers
Jackie did not share her measurements so here is what I did:
Card Base: Misty Moonlight (#153081)
Card Front: Whisper White 5-1/4" x 4" (#107730)
                   Designer Paper: 5" x 1-1/4" & 5" x 3-1/2" (#152491)
                   Whisper White: 2-7/8" x 3-1/4" cut on an angle

  • adhere the Designer Paper to the Whisper White 
  • Wrap a 6" piece of Misty Moonlight ribbon (#153624) around securing it in the back with a piece of tape.
  • now attach this to the card base
  • Stamp the images then attach to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)
  • scatter some In-Color Enamel Dots (#152480) to the front as shown (or as desired)
What I changed up: I changed up the sentiment for a birthday card using the BEST YEAR Stamp Set (#152568)

Ornate Garden

Wednesday, July 8, 2020
I spent a day just being CASE crazy, and this is one of the cards that I made.
I will admit that I have not been a fan of the ORNATE GARDEN SPECIALTY PAPER (#152488), but when I had some left over from my Paper Shares, I found this very stunning card by Su Mohr.
What I changed up: not much! I used the Happy Birthday from TIMELESS TULIPS, but other than that I loved it just the way she made it, (and I was not in the mood to think that day). Why mess with a good thing, right?

Zany Zebras + Weekly Challenge

Monday, July 6, 2020
ZANY ZEBRAS is one of those darling whimsical stamp sets that simply jump off the page and scream "BUY ME!"  Check out this quick video for simple cards
I could not wait for my own stamp set to arrive so that I could play with it.
The first card I made was inspired by the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook Group. Plus I am using this as a Weekly Challenge card for my Stampin' Up! team.
This is the sketch challenge: I was inspired by the layout by Debbie Henderson
Using the product elements from the May Paper Pumpkin Kit I made this card:
Another Zany Zebra Card (but not related to the Weekly Challenge)
but also using the May Paper Pumpkin Kit 
It was totally cased from Mary O'Neill Bush on the FB Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Page,
however I did cut out a second zebra head and popped it up with a dimensional.

And here are the cards that the gals on my team made for this challenge:
Karen flipped the sketch on end and used the Good Morning Magnolia Designer Paper
Barb cohoe the sweet little Party Panda for her card
Pam made this cute card using the little squirrel from Special Someone Stamp Set
These little critters are so cute. Hard to believe my dad hunted squirrel and we 
looked forward to having it as a meal.
Oh, the life of a hunters family.
This is Carla's card using the BEAUTIFUL WORLD Stamp Set and Dies
Lynda made a patriotic card with her challenge which made me wish my theme 
for last week would have been to make a patriotic card
Rachel used the FREE AS A BIRD Stamp Set with the All Dressed Up Designer Paper
Sure feels like summer to me!!
Jodie loves all things Disney! Such bright colors! 
I love me some Mickey too!
Janell shared 2 cards for this challenge and they are both so very pretty.
She used the Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper along with the Stamp set, but on the second card the paper combines perfectly with the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set.
I absolutely love the PAMPERED PETS Stamp Set and everything that goes with it in the Suite
Inez is the creator of this cute card and you can bet I will be casing this card in some form!!
I shared a different card each day with them 
On these first 2 I used the SENIOR YEARS Stamp Set
It's got the cutest retirement greetings for inside and out
And fun whimsical greetings for birthdays too. Since I am getting older, I appreciate the humor
And on this one I used my June Paper Pumpkin Kit.
I love the new Way To Goat Stamp Set so wanted to use this fluffy goat on my next card
