Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Neat and Tangled

Hey all!

It’s time for another challenge with the Go-to Gals. This time, we challenged each other to make something with products from Neat and Tangled.

So what’s the scoop with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (TOTALLY for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

Neat and Tangled was an easy choice! Super cute + super fun products. Plus, Danielle, the owner of Neat and Tangled, is a gem! I’ve had the chance to hang out with her on more than one occasion and can tell you that she is 110% good people! (Hugs, Danielle!)

So enough blabber (… because I really could go on and on and on), here’s the card I made.

By the way, there’s a card I shared the other day, using the same watercolor technique but with N&T’s Favorite stamp.

Here’s how I did it for this card: I just cut a base card from watercolor paper and then scribbled a lot of color with watercolor pencils onto it and then randomly spread the color with water.

I stamped on top with Neat and Tangled’s Warm Wishes stamp. I love that stamp so much! It makes me giddy.

Oh, and if you look really close at my card, you’ll see I added a little bit of white color to the mug. I did that with a pencil. And then I added a little hand stitching with my needle and floss.

Can’t wait to see what rest of the Go-to-Gal crew has cooked up this time

Have a great day, all! Be back again soon.

Go-to-Gal Designer Challenge: Stampin’ Up!

Hi guys!

It’s time for another Go-to Gal challenge. This time, we’ve challenged each other to make something with some of the cool products from Stampin’ Up!

What’s the deal with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (really, totally,  just for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

So here’s a card I cooked up to share with you.

I created the background by scribbling watercolor crayons on a stamping block, spritzing the colors with water and then pulling the color down my panel of paper.

The words and snowflakes from a sweet stamp set called Endless Wishes, which has all these gorgeous Christmas and holiday sayings + some really pretty snowflakes.

So that’s what I have today.

I’m excited to see what the rest of the Go-to-Gal crew has cooked up.

Have a great day, all! Be back again soon.

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Hazel & Ruby

Hi all!

It’s time for another challenge with the Go-to Gals. We challenged each other this time to make something with products from Hazel & Ruby.
What’s the deal with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (just for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

Ok. So here’s what I got.

Meet #1.

I created two of the circles by simply punching some of Hazel & Ruby’s wrapping paper with a circle punch. The other ones were created with some of Hazel & Ruby’s Washi tape. I just applied it to cardstock and then cut it out with a punch.

And meet #2.

I used some of the same supplies to make this one. I also threw on a couple sequins (also from Hazel & Ruby).

So that’s what I have.

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the crew cooked up.

Be back again later!

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Fancy Pants

Hi all!

It’s challenge time yet again with the Go-to Gals.

This time, we challenged each other to make something with some (super duper) fine products from Fancy Pants Designs. We had the opportunity to visit Fancy Pants HQ during our Editorial Board meeting this year. Jodi was so nice, showing off some of their new releases and letting us make a card, giving us the full-tour of Fancy Pants Designs and letting us run a bit wild in the warehouse. 😉 There might have been crazy smiles involved… and giddiness. Lots of giddiness.

Enter Exhibit A (aka: Proof).

Aptly captioned after that fun time: “We got Fancy. Thank you, Fancy Pants. ”

(Yes, thank you, Fancy Pants!)

So I’ve got two projects to share with you. Both were made with lots and lots of Fancy Pants Designs goodness.

This is No. 1.

And this is No. 2. This is just a little gift sack. 😉

Be back again later, gators!

Thanks for stopping by.

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Technique Tuesday (2-26)

Hi all!

It’s challenge time again with the Go-to Gals.

Every so often, we pick a company’s products to work with and then challenge each other to make something with them. The rules are simple: There are none! 😉 Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we don’t.

The rest of the gang decided this time to use Technique Tuesday’s products. Majority ruled. 😉 (Kidding.)

So here’s the card I cooked up for the challenge.

2_g2g_tt_thankyou_teri

It may look clean, but there’s actually quite a bit of stamping. I stamped all the elements, other than the orange dots and black line.

I used four different Technique Tuesday stamp sets: Lots of Dots; Boy Flair by Ali Edwards; I Like You and Loving Words by Ali Edwards.

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the gang cooked up for the challenge:

And pssstttt… be sure to comment on their blogs. I hear some of them might be giving away a prize. 😉

And leave comment here, too. That’s because someone who does will get a small Technique Tuesday stamp surprise. Leave your comment by Feb. 28th, and I’ll pick the lucky winner after that.
