TGIF Challenge

















I love this sketch over at the TGIF Challenge.  Challenges are good if you are suffering from 'I don't know what to do' syndrome.  In fact I find it really hard to do a card without doing a challenge.  If you have the same problems, I strongly suggest giving a challenge a go.  You will find a link to quite a few challenges on my blog.

I used one of the new sets in our soon to be released Holiday catty and the sketch is just perfect for this set too.

I used the following products from Stampin Up

TGIF Challenge

















Epic failing on posting anything for weeks again.  Bad Jo.  So I am very quickly sticking this up on my blog as I whizzed it up this afternoon.  The other day I was inspired by a photo in a random add that appeared on my Facebook feed and I felt the need to emboss gold to Bermuda Bay.  I did a rather large piece which enabled me to do 3 cards in the same colour combo.

This card was made using the sketch at TGIF Challenges blog.

For this Card I used the following products from Stampin Up

Card - Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay
Stamp - Frosted Medallions
Ink - Versa Mark
Gold embossing powder and some gold washi tape left over from sale-a-bration this year.

TGIF














I know don't die of shock this is my third for today.  I'm on a roll.  This card was made using the sketch at TGIF challenge blog.  I flipped the image around as I knew what I wanted to do.  I used an old card of mine for inspiration although I didn't have the same framelits and had to be very creative to make the bottom of the space ship.

For this card I used the following products from Stampin Up
