Birthday Boy Custom Tee

Happy Monday, and Martin Luther King day!
Here's another Custom Tee (p 30) card!  Actually, this is one
of the first that I made with this bundle.  I used the
Cable Knit Dynamic textured impressions embossing folder
on the background layer.  The sentiment is trimmed with the
Banner Triple Punch.

Beautiful Sketch Challenge

Hi friends.  Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge
with Buffy, Susan and Jackie.  The second of 2017!
Today, we are doing a sketch challenge.  Given new
Occasions product, this was a very enjoyable challenge!
I keep picking up Beautiful You (page 24) because I am
having so much fun coloring it with the new SU 
Watercolor Pencils.  It is a perfect combination!
  The sentiments in the Beautiful You set
are very effective for many situations. 
I created the banner end on the 
sentiment with the Banner Triple punch on page 186.
In this example, I used Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo,
with coordinating DSP from the Festive Birthday DSP
pack on page 173.    
Now please click over to enjoy Susan and Buffy's
sites to see their lovely sketch challenge samples.

Birthday Blast

The Birthday Blast set with coordinating Star Blast Edgelit Dies, 
on page 11 of the Occasions Catalog, is a unique bundle.
The dies can be used as gift packaging, scrapbooking 
components or card elements.

The dies enable you to prop the stars up, which is
dramatic and interesting for special occasions.

Stamp Off Up & Away Thinlits

Welcome to our 2017 edition of Stamp Off Challenges
with Susan, Buffy and Jackie.  I think it's going to be
a great stampin year!
Today we are doing a LOVELY color challenge.
These 3 colors are totally in my wheel house, as they
blend so well, given a hint of gray.
 For this challenge, I had to pull out my Lift Me Up stamp set
with coordinating Up & Away Thinlits (bundled, you save 10%).
That balloon is so much fun when you need to show off
a beautiful color combination.  This was the first bundle
I purchased from the new Occasions catalog, because it
has so much potential in terms of techniques, color coordination,
and flexibility for different stamping and scrapping needs.
It is a bundle that will fill your needs, whether you are
a vintage or CAS stamper.
The textured impressions embossing folder on the Perfect Plumb
layer is Seaside, on page 195.  I find this Embossing folder
to be one that I pick up constantly, because it does such
a nice job of simulating wind, waves or air currents.
It is just what a beautiful balloon requires. 

Now please head on over to see the lovely projects
 offered by my friends Susan and Buffy.
