"Hello" Friday Mashup!

Good Morning everyone!! It's Friday and I am so glad it is. This week's hostess for the Friday Mashup is Holly. She's come up with a fun challenge that I know you're going to love!!

Here's Your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using "Sequins".
  • Create  a "Hello or Hi project".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Hello project with Sequins".

Here is my card. 

You know, it's funny how the camera portrays things. This card looks nothing like it does in real life. The colors are all off for some reason. My color combo believe it or not is Coastal Cabana (HELLO), Pistachio Pudding (arrows) and Crisp Cataloupe (Polka Dots). I know! You're thinking, What the heck Lynda. Anyway, I do like how this card turned out. I used the "Epic" Alphabet and I can't say enough about this alphabet. I LOVE it!! It's almost up there with Bermuda Bay. If you don't have it, you NEED this stamp set.

Now it's your turn to head over to the Friday Mashup! and check out the other gals.

Happy Stamping!!

FM 165-I Heart You!!

Hello! Today's Friday Mashup is brought to us by Cindy. She says it's all about the Bubble!!

Here's today's challenge

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the colors" Black , White/Ivory and one other color of your choice".
  • Create a project using a "Word Bubble".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Black & White project with a Word Bubble on it".

This was such a fun challenge. Word bubbles are such a cool thing right now. 
Here is my take on the challenge

I don't know why, but I seriously love this little owl family. So part of the challenge was to use the colors, black, white and one other color. Of course I had to use my go to color, Bermuda Bay. This was a pretty simple card to put together. I used several new things on it. 
-Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder
-Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine
-And So Many More Stamp Set
-Point & Click Stamp Set (Project Life)

It's always fun to have new goodies to play with. Now I challenge you to head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the other Design Team Members have done.

Thanks for stopping by and remember always,

Happy Stamping!!!!

FM 163- Kinda Sketchy!!

Good Morning Everyone!! It's almost Summer and today is the last day of school for my kiddos so I am very excited about that.

Today's Friday Mashup challenge is brought to us by Avery. She's provided a sketch and has mashed it with patterned paper. 

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using the "Sketch".
  • Create a project using " an assortment of different Pattern Papers".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project with the "Sketch using different pattern papers".

Since it's the beginning of a new catalog, I only had a couple of different DSP's that are new. I chose to use the new paper stack called Moonlight. I really like these little paper stacks that give you lots of different choices.

Color Combo: Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand, Basic Gray & Blackberry Bliss
Stamp Set: Zoo Babies & Label Love

SC 80- Signs of Summer!!

I know this post should have gone out on the 1st, but hey it may be a little late, but definitely worth the wait. Anyhoo, we have a new challenge for you at Stampin' Celebration this month. I absolutely loved this picture when I saw it. There are so many fun things you could do with it.

When I first saw this, I almost didn't know where to begin, but in the end, the colors of the barstools are what kept my attention. In order to make this card, I had to dig into my cache of stamping supplies to find these colors.

Color Scheme: Regal Rose, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade & Wisteria Wonder
Stamp Set: Summer Splash & A Dozen Thoughts
Embellishements: Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon and Retired DSP

Isn't this just a fun, happy card? You could so brighten someone's day with a little "hello" Well now it's time to head over to Stampin' Celebration and check out the DT's projects. Lot's of cute stuff.

Happy Stamping!!

FM 162-Bust A Move!!

I apologize for the lateness of this post. I have four kids playing baseball which means we are in the last week of games, it's the last week of school which means, awards assemblies, field day etc and a special weekend for my son who turned 8. 

Needless to say, I have been very busy and I am just now getting to my posting. 
So this week at the Friday Mashup, Tara is our hostess and she is challenging all of us to "Bust A Move" or in other words, make a card with a moving feature.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

  • Create a project with "Stripes".
  • Create a project with "Movable or Removable elements".
  • or Mashup it Up! and create a project with "Movable Elements & Stripes".

As I thought about what I wanted to do for my card, I decided a nice waterfall card with the new stamp set, Something for Baby would be fun. I like waterfall cards because they are different, but still get your message across. Now if you've never made a waterfall card, here is a really great tutorial on them.

So the way a waterfall card works is that when you pull the tab at the bottom, all the different images will cascade down as you look at the card. Fun!!

I should have taken a picture of the card in action, but a lass I didn't think about it until now.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today and head over to The Friday Mashup blog to check out the other fun "move" you can make with a card!!

Happy Stamping!
