Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #50

Hi Friends!

Welcome to a new Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge! Can you believe we are up to 50 challenges already! The time certainly does fly when you are having so much fun!

This week we have a fun sketch and/or inspiration photo for you all to play along with.

For my card I chose to use the sketch and create a glittery birthday card using the fun Hippo Birdy stamp and die sets. I swear lately all I’ve been creating is birthday cards! It seems all of my friends tend to have their birthdays in the later half of the year!

Anyway, I pretty much stayed true to the sketch for this card but I substituted the banner for my sentiment. I started by creating the card layers on my card base using sugar cube cardstock and some white glitter cardstock. Next I stamped, die cut and paper pieced the hippo and birdy using gold and silver glitter and foil cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment onto my card before sticking the hippo and birdy down using some adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix.

I love how this one turned out. Who can resist some glitter?!

Have a wonderful night!

We have spent the weekend here just staying out of the rain and enjoying some family time around the house, which is really nice.

I thought I would quickly pop in today and share some sneak peeks of the cards I created for this month’s Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Gallery Challenge.

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #49

Hi There

It’s time again for a new Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge! This week we have a sketch and/or colour challenge for you all to play along with.

SJC49

For my card I chose to play along with the colour challenge and create a bright and happy birthday card using the fun Party Time die set to create a row of colourful birthday presents.

Simone_SJC49

Firstly I stamped my sentiment from the Free Spirit stamp set onto my card base using Lemon Meringue ink. Next I die cut some presents from the Rainbow Brights paper pack, before die cutting the bows for the presents from some Cookie Monster cardstock and gluing them down onto the presents. Finally I stuck the presents down onto my card using adhesive foam before adding some matching coloured sequins.

Definitely a fun and bright CAS card!

I hope you all play along with us this week. Be sure to stop by the Share Joy Challenge blog to check out all the details and inspiration from the DT.

Have a great night!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #48

Hi Everyone

Welcome back to another new Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions!

This week we have a fun sketch and/or CAS challenge for you to play along with.

SJC48

For my card I went with the sketch and CAS to create this punny Ha-bee Birthday card for my brother whose birthday was yesterday.

Simone_SJC48

I adore the cute little Bumble Bee die so wanted to use it but this time to create a birthday card with them. To create the punny sentiment for the card I had to do some ‘surgery’ (basically just cut the stamps apart) on a sentiment I used from the Bugs and Balloons stamp set, together with the word ‘bee’ from a sentiment in the Punny Love stamp set. I then aligned them how I liked, and stamped them using Oreo ink. I then scored around the sentiment as per the sketch before die cutting my bumble bees and sticking them onto my card using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some matching coloured sequins.

I hope this card inspires you to play along with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #47

Hello!

It’s Thursday again so that means it’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge!

This week we have a sketch/and or Tic Tac Toe challenge for you to play along with. You can choose to play with either of the challenge elements or both. It’s totally up to you!

SJC47

This week I chose to play along with the Tic Tac Toe part of the challenge using the combination of flowers, blue and ink splatter to create a sweet Thank You card for a good friend of mine.

Simone_SJC47

To create this card I started off by stamping my sentiment onto my card base before stamping the flowers from the Fresh Florals stamp set and the Friendship Blooms stamp set on to a separate piece of cardstock before die cutting them out. After I worked out where I wanted the flowers arranged I stuck them down to my card using adhesive foam. To add some ink splatters to my card I used a small stamp from the Stroke of Genius 2 stamp set and some silver ink. Finally I then embellished the card with some blue sequins from the Build a Scene sequin mix.

If you would like to play along with us this week, stop by the Share Joy Challenge blog for more DT inspiration and all the details.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
