Sweet Thoughts Memories & More - Stamping With Friends - Blogger's Choice


 I'm excited to be participating in this Stamping With Friends Blog Hop and it's blogger's choice this time! I'm sure you will enjoy seeing all of the different styles and types cards the demonstrators in this blog hop have created, so be sure to "hop" all the way around to see every demonstrator's blog post.  


Super Simple, Super Quick

Do you like making professional looking, but no fuss, cards? Then making cards with the SWEET THOUGHTS Memories & More card pack and the SWEET THOUGHTS Memories & More cards & envelopes are perfect! I made both of these super easy and fun cards in less than 30 minutes. The card pack is designed with scrapbooking and easy cards in mind. And the possibilities are endless! 


This is the card I CASE'd directly from the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. 

If you look closely, you can see that I used Stampin' Dimensionals on some of the layers and added some Classic Matte Dots to the center of the butterfly.











Here's the card I came up with on my own using the parts in the card pack. 

I added the Black & White Gingham Ribbon, the gold Simply Elegant Trim and the Brushed Brass Butterflies to "step up" the card. I also used some Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the butterfly sticker from the card pack.










Here is the video showing how I made these cards:

    Perennial Postage Bundle - Stamping With Friends - Tic Tac Toe Card Challenge

    I'm excited to be participating in this Stamping With Friends Blog Hop and the Tic Tac Toe Card Challenge! I'm sure you are just as excited as I am to see all of the different styles and types cards the demonstrators in this blog hop have created, so be sure to "hop" all the way around to see every demonstrator's blog post.  


    A Little Tic Tac Toe Fun 

    I have to be honest, this is the first time I've participated in a Tic Tac Toe challenge. I decided make a quick & easy card and to use the bottom horizontal row: DSP, Free space, Butterfly.



    For the DSP I chose PERENNIAL LAVENDER, for the Free space I chose LOST LAGOON BORDERED RIBBON, and then I choose the PAPER BUTTERFLY ACCENTS. I used Pool Party and Lost Lagoon with BLENDING BRUSHES to give the butterfly some color.



    I just love the postage stamp edge of the PERENNIAL POSTAGE dies, and what can be better than hugs sent through the mail! 

    Here's how the overall design of the card came out. I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments. 😊
