Sweet Baby Bear UN-challenge

I had so much fun making this card. I’m entering it in FOUR challenges! I titled this UN-challenge, though, because it all came together so quickly and sweetly. When I read the Global Design Project #GDP123 – New Beginnings, I thought a baby card would be good. Then I read the TGIF Color Challenge #TGIFC145 – Blushing Bride, Powder Pink, and Sweet Sugarplum, I just knew the baby card would be great. Then I saw the Freshly Made Sketches FMS322 and knew it would be the perfect layout. And to round it all out is Watercooler Wednesday WWC155 – Anything Goes. I don’t think I’ve ever had a card come together as swiftly as this one. The color palette is adorable and I had to go with the Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon (Sale-a-Bration) because pink and gray are gorgeous together! I won’t bore you with how many pink and gray outfits I had back in 5th grade. Thanks for letting me play along!

Lovely Amazing Valentine Fancy Fold

I was trying to find a fun way to showcase the Lovely Words Thinlits and found this post by Connie Stewart: https://simplysimplestamping.com/fancy-folds-blog-hop-cherry-sundae-box-card/  Her fancy fold is awesome and I was super excited to give it a try with my stamp club. So, here’s my version of a fun Valentine! You can see the Sparkle Embossing Folder detail even better on the top view. And the icing on the cake? It lays flat to fit into a standard size medium envelope!

Battle of the Pearls vs. Rhinestones

There are a lot of card samples roaming the internet where people used Basic Jewels for the lights on the marquee. I couldn’t decide which to use, so I made 3 cards – one using medium pearls, one with medium rhinestones and one with large rhinestones. Hunter’s vote is for the pearls. I’m battling between the medium rhinestones and pearls. What do you think?  Regardless of which one you prefer, I think we can all agree that the 3 In Colors I used are absolutely ice-cream delicious! Look closely and you may see the shimmery Wink of Stella on the “It’s Your” and the two sparkles, too.
