Some of the best challenges are the ones where you get to find a muse and then recreate their card.  It's a chance to make your version of their card with the stamps and supplies you have on hand.  At TGIF you will see all the fun cards designed by the team members and then you too can join along in the fun.
My muse for this challenge was Cathy Caines.  I was totally drawn to her layout, her color palette, and her theme.  I didn't have anything like what she had used on her card so I grabbed what green pattern paper I could find.  There is a super yummy piece of Mint Macaron paper in the Affectionately Yours DSP pack that was my starting point.   To finish mimicing Cathy's layout I used the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape.  The stamp sets I worked with were the Foxy Friends and Oh Happy Day Card Kit.  For easy cutting I grabbed the Fox Builder Punch and the Perfect Pines Framelits.

Gift of Love

A quick post for today to share this soft and sweet Gift of Love card.  The side stripes is a piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape and the floral image is stamped on a scrap of Watercolor Paper.  To step the card up I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the "thank you" greeting, and the flower petals.  All stamps are from the Gift of Love Hostess Set.  This card is a beauty in person!

Something New Something Navy Blue

For our latest color challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments I grabbed something new, Fox and Friends, and something navy blue.  
So as I was fumbling through my first time using the Fox and Friends stamp set I realized I don't know my animals.  Eek how did I get out of college?  I am not smarter than a 5th grader?  Definitely not when it comes to mammals.  I mean come on I made a pink fox without any front legs!  Looks normal to me.

Cutie Pie Additct

Hello hoppers!  I am super jazzed to share with you all on this hop that I have an addiction.  Yes, an addiction to the Cutie Pie Framelits--they are just so versatile and fun to create dimensional gift packages and projects.
I have strung three Cutie Pie boxes and four Glassine Sheet flowers along some 5/8" Organza Ribbon to make a three dimensional gift packaged garland.  Each flower is backed with a gold Metallic Doily and is embellished with Gold 1/8" Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim.
To make the flowers I cut two large, three medium, and three small circles from the Glassine Sheets.  I layered them all together, secured them with a Mini Brad (retired), and fluffed them all to the center.  The great thing is the Glassine Sheets really hold their shape and have a crisp sturdy look.  They almost look like carnations!
It's my hope that you have been inspired to go out and create.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  Smiles, Elizabeth
