Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge 121 - Anything But A Card

Happy Friday everyone!

This is my last Friday of Summer break as my big kids will head off to school Monday.  Hard to believe it is over... whaaaaaaa!! :( 

As I cry my back-to-school tears, YNS has a new challenge on their blog for you to jump in and share your creativity! It is Anything but a Card.  There are so many fun YNS dies that can be incorporated into this challenge and I couldn't help but use this adorable treat die for this challenge.

I cutout the treat bag using the Scallop Topper Treat die and before assembling it together, I used the Starburst Background stamp set to stamp over the cut out and stamp the sentiment on the flap closure. I then stamped and colored the butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies Set and cut it out using the coordinating dies to be popped up over the center.  The treat bag was then finished off with some holographic sequins.  Just a sweet treat that can be tucked into a lunch box or left on a co-workers desk!

Be sure to check out all the fun designs the team has put together for this challenge on the YNS Blog! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

CAS - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps TCPTUES360

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all are having a good week and for some of you, it may be back to school time! If you do, I hope your kiddos, big and small are slaying it this year.

Today is a reminder that The Cat's Pajamas Stamps challenge of CAS is still going on and you still have time to play and upload your creation. I decided to make a card using Sketchy Santa's and always look at this set in a rustic view.  So, I decided to try my hand at a bit of rustic and well... I don't think I am very good at it! hahaha! But it is not terrible! :)

I started with some Kraft cardstock for my main base and used some Distress Stain in white to run over the top.  The image was stamped on top of that and using a white gel pen, I colored in the beard.  The sentiment was stamped in Love Letter Momento ink and I doodled all along the edge.  I finished the card with my clear gel pen to color in the stars.

Be sure to stop by the TCP Blog to see all the fun CAS creations the Kitty Cat Pack have done and be sure to play along and upload your design for your chance to win! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
