#TGIFC153 Bonus Week Challenge

Today I’m playing along with the TGIF Challenge and I knew exactly which card I was going to CASE!  I’d seen it on the Demonstrator Planning Place Facebook group earlier and LOVED IT!  Stesha used the Springtime Florals DSP from Sale-a-Bration which I sadly didn’t get but that gave me the opportunity to try and recreate it using current Stampin’ Up! supplies.

Since that photo doesn’t show how shiny it really is, I’m adding a few more.

Sweet Soirée Cards

Sale-a-Bration ends this Saturday!

I love, love, love buying Memories & More card packs, the problem I always have is using them up.  I personally don’t like the look of pocket scrapbook pages and there are only so many cards I can use on one scrapbook layout soooooo I tend to use them to make cards instead.  I was inspired by a photo from Stampin’ Up! and also by Jackie Aitken.

Here is what I created:

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Sweet Soirée

And here is what inspired me from Stampin’ Up!:

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Sweet Soiree

I actually did create a version of the Adventures card but I forgot to take a picture before sending it off to the boutique I sell cards at.  The change I made to it was to stamp Await using the Brushwork Alphabet instead of Side by Side.   I needed graduation cards.  🙂

Here are the cards close up:

My Onstage swap is based on this last card and possibly one of the cards for my next class.

Fun Things Happen When We Gather

Not long ago I got together with a few demonstrators over at Rachel Tessman’s house because Mackenzie was in town visiting.  It was a good enough excuse to gather and make some cards together.  I’d just driven back from our Spring Break trip to see family in Illinois so I didn’t have time to create a make & take to share but here is what some of the others created for us to make.

Rachel used the new Paper Pumpkin kit and a note card for her make & take.

Susan used the Myths & Magic suite for her card.

Vicki used a fun fold and the Petal Palette Bundle for her card.

Party Pandas Spinner

When I saw this card, I knew I had to make it.  It was just so much fun!  Here is my version that we made at my last Cookies & Cards class.  We used the Stamparatus to get the Panda fully black and colored in the hat with Stampin’ Blends.
