Gobble, Gobble, It's Friday Mashup Time!

Yeah!! It's Friday which means it's the end of the busy week. It also means that it's time for another
Friday Mashup Challenge!!
I loved this weeks challenge.
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Gingham."
  2. Create a project using "Kraft or Crumb Cake. "
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "with Gingham & Kraft."
Gingham is one of my most favorite things. If you look "Gingham Christmas" up on Pinterest, there are all sorts of fun things to see. So now for my card, yet another Christmas Card again!
I really like how this card turned out!! I wasn't sure about this wreath stamp set when I first got it, but it's turns out that I have really liked it. In order to add "Gingham" to my card, I had to create it. I have a roller stamp that is Gingham, but it was giving me grief. I ended up using some Whisper White Taffeta (3/8) ribbon and stamping on it.
It the end, things worked out. My favorite part of the card is the buttons. It was fun to use a mixture of things.
So, now it's your turn to head over to The Friday Mashup and take the challenge. Because of Thanksgiving, this challenge will run for two weeks.
Happy Stamping!

It's Friday Mashup!

Yeah!!! It's Friday. That means it's time for another Friday Mashup Challenge.
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with a  "Baked Brown Sugar, Always Artichoke & Crushed Curry."
  2. Create a "3-D project."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "3-D Project with the above Color Combo."
So I decided that it's almost Thanksgiving time here in the states and we needed a Turkey to help decorate the Thanksgiving table.
Here he is. I saw something like him on Stampin' Connection and had to try my own version.
Wouldn't every child love to see this sitting on their plate on Thanksgiving day? I made his feathers with the Gift bow die. Go ahead and try your hand at making a Turkey this holiday.

Bike Race meets Birthday Boy

Good Morning everyone!! Today's card is inspired by several things, 
1st- It's my brother's birthday today!!
2nd, he plays this game on his phone called Bike Race.
It's a funny little game where this bike bounces all over the place. Most of the time, it flips upside down. 
3rd- This card was inspired by Shelley Gardner, the CEO of Stampin' Up.
She showed this card during her presentation at Convention. When I saw it, I new that was the birthday card for my brother.
I basically cased her card. It's called a Spinner Card. You use pennies, to make an object spin on the card.
Do you see the slot next to the motorcycle? That is what allows the motorcycle to twist and turn on the card. If you're interested in making one of these cards, just search "Spinner Card" on Youtube.
In the making of this card I used several stamp sets, of course, REV UP THE FUN, if you have boys this is a must. GORGEOUS GRUNGE! If you're a stamper this is a basic set. Last, but not least, the "happy birthday" comes from YOU'RE MY HERO. Also another must have if you have boys.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Happy Stamping!!!

Mojo Monday is on Santa's List

Good Morning and welcome to a brand new week. I love Monday's because things feel fresh and new. Anyway, to start the day off, we have a challenge from Mojo Monday.
My card today comes from Santa's List. I fell in love with this stamp set when I saw it. It's the most perfect Santa.
So the stamp sets I used were Santa's List and the new one that goes with the Pop n Place stuff. The paper is Season of Style.
Hope you enjoy this card today!
Happy Stamping!!

Feel Better!

So it's Tuesday and that means another card. My niece is having some surgery done and so today's card is dedicated to her.
It was kind of hard to think about what a teenage girl would like, plus it had to be something that could be sent through the mail.
If you're having a downer day, I hope this makes you feel better too.
Happy Stamping!

Friday Mashup!!

Welcome to Friday!! My kids have the day off, so we are going to have some fun, but first we need to check this week's Friday Mashup!!
Today's Challenge
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with a "Game/Woodsy type Animal (Deer, Moose, Turkey, etc). "
  2. Create a project using a "Woodgrain look. "
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "project with Woodgrain and a Woodsy animal image. "
So after reading the challenge again, I guess my take is a little different. I didn't have any woodsy type animal, but I thought to myself, people hunt other things so..............
Rhino's! This one is very cute, but in real life I wouldn't want to meet one of these in person!
I also used the woodgrain folder to mimick "rhino skin" Have you ever seen a rhino up close at the Zoo? Their skin is very wrinkly. I know, it's a stretch, but what do you a do?
Head on over to the Friday Mashup and get your "Game" on today!
Happy Stamping!!

Festive Flurry Meets Mojo Monday

Good Morning Everyone!! We are finally in November. Can you believe it?
Today's card is a Mojo Monday Challenge. Yesterday, it snowed where I live so that was my inspiration for my card.
Here's the Mojo Monday Sketch
Fun!! I love the ideas of using a tag on a card. So here's my take on the sketch. Remember, it was frosty and snowy outside yesterday.
I can't get enough of this DSP. It's so frosty & cold. It reminds me of winter. Plus the foil paper in the packet is a bonus. I love how it shines. I decided to stamp the snowflakes in versamark and then used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I layered the snowflakes on Coastal Cabana CS and then put a jewel in the middle.
Here is a close up of those snowflakes.
It's so pretty to see them shimmer!!
Now that you've seen what I created, head on over to the Mojo Monday and get your mojo on!!
Happy Stamping!

It's Friday Mashup!!

It's Friday and that means another Friday Mashup!
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "the Sketch."
  2. Create a project using "Chevrons."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "with the above Sketch & Chevrons. "
This was a fun challenge. I once saw some Chevrons made out of paper. So I went to Youtube and found a tutorial on it. It's super easy. Here's the link to that video.
Here's my card.
So I folded the paper chevrons out of DSP. I then sewed them onto the card. If you've never tried sewing on a card, it's really lots of fun.  I used the honeycomb embossing folder, Really Great Greeting stamp set and a Crushed Curry button.
So now it's your turn. Head on over to the Friday Mashup and get your Chevron on!!
Happy Stamping!!!
