A Take It Or Leave It Stamp Off Challenge

Yay!  It is Friday and time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie and Buffy.  Oh wait.  This is a Take It or Leave It Challenge.  Hmmmm.  Well, you will see why I say this.  Here is the challenge.

Twine or Ribbon?  I can do that.  Framelit or Thinlit?  I can do that too.  Food?  Huh?  Doilies?  I can even do that!  Food?  Hmmmm .  So I began to look through my stamp sets to see what had food.  Fiesta Birthday has a llama.  Can you eat that?  No.  I would not.  Pop of Paradise has a flamingo.  No way.  Baby Bear?  I don’t think so!  Sitting There has a cat.  Naw.  I don’t live in one of those countries that eat cats.  So here is the best I could do.

Fish!  I can use the fish in Seaside Shore.  So here is my card.  Please notice I used every element on the list.  Oh and by the way, Seaside Shore is being carried over into the new Annual Catalog!  I am happy about that!

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie eat.  Let’s hope it is not a dog!

A Stamp Off Sketch Challenge

It is Friday which means another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me!  This time we have a sketch challenge that Jackie designed.  Have you noticed how Jackie does most of the designing for our challenge?  Yep.  She is awesome that way.

Here is her challenge:


Here is my card:

Seaside Shore, Labeler Alphabet

I used the stamp set called Seaside Shore to make this card.  I just love those fish!  I think they are just adorable.  Crazy, I know!  Maybe it comes from my love of the ocean and the beach.   Those are my favorite places to be so the fish just go along with that theme.  The sentiment was made from the stamp set called Labeler Alphabet.  This set is great because you can make any words you want with it.  It is Photopolymer which means they are clear to help you position them.

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using this sketch challenge.  I am sure you will love both of them!

Vertical Greetings

Vertical Greetings

It seems like I have posted a lot of thank you cards lately.  I had to make a whole bunch of them to send to someone who needed to thank a lot of people who helped her family out.  After I did that I realized that I didn’t have nay left for myself so I began a crusade to replenish them in my stash.  You probably wonder what I do with all these cards I make.  If you think about it, I post a minimum of five days a week, every week.  That is 260 cards a year! Well, I share them.  I send bunches of them to my sisters and mother to use.  They love them and use them so it works out well.

I made this card using the stamp set called Vertical Greetings.  I like this set because the sentiments are different (because they are vertical).  The Designer Series Paper I used is called By The Shore.  Both of these items are in the 2016 Annual Catalog.

A Sketch Stamp Off Challenge

This week our challenge is a Sketch Challenge made by Jackie.  Jackie is awesome at the sketch challenges so we let her do most of the designing of them.  Here is this week’s sketch:


Here is my card:

Painter's Palette, Flourish Thinlits

I used a lot of new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2016/2017 Annual Catalog.  The easel is from the stamp set called Painter’s Palette.  They don’t have a matching set of Thinlits for this set so I had to cut out the easel by hand.  I know.  That is not my favorite thing but it wasn’t too hard since all the lines are straight.  I think I must have flunked out cutting in Kindergarten because for some reason I have a hard time with that.

In any case, The ribbon going up the page and the flower are from the Flourish Dies set.   I love this set of dies.  They are just so pretty and elegant.  The Designer Series Paper is called By The Shore and matches the stamp set called Seaside Shore.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Fresh Fruit.  Last but not least, the enamel dots are in the color Sweet Sugarplum.

Now, let’s go over and see what Jackie and Buffy made.  I am sure we will be awed by their creations.  They are so creative!
