Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 91 - Andrea's Birthday!

Good morning...and happy Tuesday!  I'm back with Challenge #91 over at Stamp Ink Paper...where I'm totally enjoying my gig as this month's guest designer!  Oh...and this challenge is all about celebrating Andrea's birthday, too!  How fun is that?


So...to celebrate Andrea's birthday I wanted to do something bright and fun...like her!  I thought I might be able to find everything I needed with the Balloon Adventures Bundle and the Party Animal DSP...and I was right!

These charming Party Animal DSP prints and Embellishments seemed perfect as partners for the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create my card...

and the coordinating tie it on tag is the perfect way to dress up a give of cash!  Check back later this week for a tutorial and other tie on ideas!   

And now...jump over to the Stamp Ink Paper blog for all the Challenge #91 -  Andrea's Birthday details...and don't forget to add your project at the link!  I can't wait to see what you create!

As always...

Stamp Review Crew - Oh So Succulent

Happy Sunday, and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew featuring the Oh, So Succulent stamp set! 


I have to admit that I was late to the party...late in getting the Oh, So Succulent stamp set, that is...and the coordinating Succulent Framelits Dies, too.  I guess I felt like I needed a bit more inspiration before I added it to my order.  So...I went looking...and boy oh boy...did I find inspiration!  This stamp set and die bundle are absolutely amazing...and I've seen hundreds of fabulous project using them.  Seriously...hundreds!  For me...I wanted to do something a little different...something with a bit of a different color scheme.  And so...when and I came across a gorgeous photo of green succulents with these amazing yellow blooms I knew that's what I wanted to use!  And so...with green and yellow... and bits of red and black...I created this...

something to set aside for Mother's Day! 

There are so many cool things about the Succulents Bundle that allowed me to create some fun details on my card.  First, my yellow flowers were created with dies that are not only perfect as succulent blooms...but they are also fun daisy-like flowers.  Then, one of the succulent flower dies has this AWESOME cutting detail that allows you to lightly bend the small cuts to give the "plant" amazing detail and texture.  Absolutely perfect for cards and tags! 

I used them same yellow flower dies to create the succulent blooms on my Egg Carton gift packaging.  It's LOVE that by simply layering and adding them to different succulent die cuts the flowers have such a different look! 

I haven't yet decided what to gift the Egg Carton will hold on Mother's Day...but the options are endless! 

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stamp Review Crew tonight as we feature the amazing stamp set Oh, So Succulent!  If you're hopping in order you've just come from the talented Martha, and I know you'll want to hop on to see what my Crew friend Tanya has for you, too!
