Thank You Petals

 - by OttawaMom

If it’s Monday, it must mean that it is time for another challenge at Stampin’ Celebration! And this time, we have a fun sketch for you to work with.

SCIpix-007My card:


This sketch is perfect for showcasing some of the new DSP’s from the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. I chose to use some of the patterns from the Pretty Petals DSP stack, and paired it with one of the petite flower images from the Petite Petals stamp set.  The possibilities are endless with this sketch!

Our challenge is open until Friday, August 7th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Feel free to use any brand of product you may have in your Stash.

  • Please link directly to the post for this challenge, not your entire blog (so we can find your project better)

  • And Have Fun!!!

I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already! Although we are having an awesome summer, and there is still lots of it left, it does seem as if it is flying by! Guess that’s what happens when you are having fun!

This week at Colour Me..!, it’s time to get playful and we have an awesome colour combo for you – Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss, Pink Pirouette and Garden Green.

Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-004My card:

DSCN0723I seem to have a thing with flowers on my cards, and knew I had to do some with this week’s colour combo. The large flower was the only one I cut out with a punch, the rest were fussy cut, as were the stems.

The scalloped edge was created with the largest oval in the Ovals Framelits Collection –  and I’m super happy I managed to put it through the Big Shot without cutting the rest of the paper!

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….! and check them out. We can’t wait to see what you create!!! Antonia, Bhavana, Hayley, Jinny, Julia, Kim, Ren, Tara, Valentyna, and Crystal (Guest Designer).

The challenge will end on July 27th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules, to keep things fair – you can check them out here.

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Celebration Stars for STB!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for another great challenge at Seize the Birthday and we are working without any “Toppings” this time around, so it is once again “Anything Goes”!

My card:


The inspiration for the colour combo, comes from the current challenge and inspiration photo at Curtain Call.

celebrateI always find our no “Toppings” a lot of fun but sometimes need to have just a little inspiration to get started. So when I saw the above photo, I knew I had to incorporate all those wonderful, subtle colours and of course the glitter! It is a bit hard to see tell, in my photo, but trust me that star is glittery!

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until July 28th, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.

My fellow Design Team members have created some fabulous cards, so please check them out and be inspired! NancyGlendaColleen, HannelieSharynJodeneJoAnnMarzenaShirley and Anni!

Sure hope you will join the party!
