25 Tags of Occassion Inspiration and TGIF Challenge #81

Just a quick post so that I can get these challenges that I created this weekend up. I actually had a bit of inspiration!!

The first is my tag that was inspired by Laura's tag from Lil' Inker Designs.

I chose to use a blue and white color scheme rather then red and white. I did not have the products that Laura used so I improvised. I used the "Flurry" Fri-die and the "Tag Buddies" Fri-dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps for this tag.

I am entering this in Tracey McNeely's "25 Tags of Christmas" challenge that she has on her blog.
If you have not stopped by, RUN. There are some AWESOME tags on her blog!!

I also made a card for the TGIF #18.

I used My Favorite Things "Soda Pop" stamps and dies to create this. I created the bottles by smooshing distress ink and die cutting with the "Soda Pop" dies.

I had a lot of fun using stuff from my stash on this card. I dug out my Doodlebug Paper Frills in green for the border.

I also used a sticker that I had lying around for the sentiment. It looks wonky in this photo but I fixed it so it is now straight!!

Well, that is all for tonight!! Thank you for stopping by!!

Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #22

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a fabulous Wednesday!!

It is the 16th of the month so that means another Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!! We are here with Challenge #22.

For my card, I chose to use the first column down-bling, white on white and scene. I apologize for the photography. It was hard to take photos of white on white!!

I started off by die cutting my scene with PaperTrey Ink's "Scene It: Skyscapes Die Collection" out of white card stock. I paired it with the "Scene It: Everyday" die. I layered these together and then over a die cut circle, also cut out of white card stock.

I then stamped the sentiment from PaperTrey Ink's "Petite Places: Church" in Hero Arts "Soft Granite" ink onto one of the layers and tucked in a church was die cut with the matching die. I used some "Diamond" Stickles to add some sparkle to the windows.

When the Stickles was dry, I adhered the scene onto a pinked circle that I cut out using the My Favorite Things "Pinked Circle" die. I added some "Clear" Wink of Stella on the sun rays coming over the hill, though this was so hard for me to get in any of my photos.

I set the completed scene aside and worked on my card. I used a Lifestyle heart embossing folder to emboss the hearts and then die cut the white panel with the "Blue Prints #13" die from My Favorite Things. I used satin ribbon to make a bow at the left side of the card.

I then adhered the scene over the card front. I added a few clear sequins to complete the card.

I LOVE how this card came out and it was surprisingly quick to put together since I used dies. I hope this inspires you to come on over to Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and play with us for Challenge #22!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!
