Friday Mashup 190

Good Morning! Only 5 more days until Christmas!! I can hardly wait and at the same time, there's still so much to do. But today, I have another Friday Mashup challenge for you.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project using the "Sketch". 
  • Create a "2 Layer card with a grungy element in the background". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the sketch that's 2 layers only".

I really liked this sketch. It's simple and yet there are so many possibilities. I find that I am always in need of boy themed cards so I decided to make a birthday card.

I turned the direction of the card since it worked better with my idea. I used the stamp Simply Sports. If you have any little guys in your life, this stamp set is a must have. Anyway, I also used Gorgeous Grunge in the background. How many of you have purchased the Trim the Tree Paper Stack and you're thinking to yourself, "I've only used half of this" well, never fear, there are lots of different patterns that will work for other things besides Christmas. The paper above comes from that stack, but you would never know it. Don't be afraid to look at your stuff in a different way.

Now it's your turn to take the challenge and head over to the Friday Mashup blog. This challenge runs for two weeks. Good Luck!

Happy Stamping!

Gray is the new Silver!

Good Morning Everyone!! Today we are bringing you a new challenge from the Friday Mashup. Cindy is our hostess this week and she's picked Basic Gray and Silver along with embossing.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project using "Basic Grey or Smoky Slate & Silver". 
  • Create a project using "Dry or Heat Embossing". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors Silver & Grey with some Embossing".

This is such a fun color combo. It makes anything look sleek and smooth. Here's my take on this week's challenge.

This was a fun card to make. I got the Basic Gray, Silver and dry embossing all in. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the star and "rock star" sentiment are stamped in silver ink. Ahhhhh! So cute. Now I want to challenge you to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other talented designers have done.

Happy Stamping!

Silver & Gold... Silver & Gold

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my blog today. This week at the Friday Mashup we have a challenge based on the famous song Silver & Gold sung by Burl Ives.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project using "Silver or Gold". 
  • Create a "Christmas Project". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Christmas-themed Project with Silver or Gold".

This one was hard for me. It was even my own challenge. As I thought about it I decided I needed to highlight the cafe bags in the Holiday Catalog. I also wanted to use the cute Nutcracker from Santa Stache. So here's what I came up with.

Isn't he cute? These cafe bags are so awesome. They are the perfect size to give a little treat and they are lined on the inside. You could put anything you want in them. So now it's your turn to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and take the Silver & Gold challenge. Good Luck!

Happy Stamping!
