FM169.. It's all about the Background!


Welcome to another Friday Mashup!  Sara here to bring you your next challenge... Background stamps can add so much to a card, so I thought it would be fun to see all the different background stamps out there and how each of you like to use them. While you're at it add a little (or a lot!) of dimension to your card by putting something 3-D on your card.  Small and sweet or large and in charge, it's up to you!  



Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using a "Background Stamp".
  • Create a project with "something 3-D on it".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "project with a 3-D element and a Background Stamp".

A Big Thank you to Sandy Mathis for providing us with the challenge photo. She has a great tip on using Background Stamps below: 

"A quick tip for you to get your card stock perfectly lined up with a large background stamp. Ink up your stamp first, then lay it down face up. Carefully place your card stock where you want it to be. Then take a large clear block (this is Stampin' Up's clear block 'F'), and press down with the clear block. Carefully remove the card stock. Tweezers work well here."

Whatever it is, show us on your project by creating something with a summer theme and use these perfect summer colors.... Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow. Of course neutrals are always welcome to use with the colors also.

Have fun and I cant wait to see all the great projects!

Heidi's Rock Star for FM167


Hey Everyone!  It was so fabulous to see so many watercolor cards for this week's challenge. I'm glad everyone jumped on board and got their feet "wet". 




What a beautiful sunset Deepti created for this silhouette scene.  I love the mixture of colors and the yellows rising up like clouds.  Very dreamy! ~ Heidi







Thank You again to everyone who played along with us.. We will see you all back here tomorrow for a new challenge!

FM167 it's a Watercolor Wash kinda week!


Hi Everyone!  It's Heidi, and it's my turn to host the Friday Mashup challenge.  This week, the challenge is to create a card using the watercolor technique and with a clean & simple (CAS) or minimal layer layout.

You can choose a CAS layout, with a main focal point and lots of white space.  The main focal point can be just a portion of the main panel or an attached smaller wash panel or die-cut.  If you choose to fill your space with wash, a project with a main panel and a card base would be ideal.

Watercolor wash is a fun way to fill the background quickly with soft or vibrant color, and you can find a tutorial here.  I can't wait to see what you create!




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a Project with a "Watercolor Wash".
  • Create a "CAS project or one with Minimal Layers".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "CAS project with a Watercolor Wash".

Holly's Rock Star Picks!


Wow what a great turnout for this week's challenge.. I'm so excited to see everyone loved Hellos & Sequins! I mean who doesn't love Sequins? It was way too hard to pick just one Rock Star I wish I could pick more, but I managed to narrow it down to 2!!!




Now this is a great Hello card.. What a fun idea to create a shaker and fill it with Sequins!  I love this Brian!! 



Thinking outside of the box... Love it! Project Life is all the rage right now and what a fun idea to create a shaker like this for your page. I love all the fun colors and that Hello! 

Congratulations to both of you!!

Welcome back to the Friday Mashup... are you ready to get your Sparkle on? It's Holly here and I'm your hostess for this challenge. This week we are mashin' up Sequins with a Hello card.. You know those cards to just say Hi. I think when a card isn't specific to Birthday etc.. We can get a little more creative... well maybe that's just how I think. So, let's get creative and get out that sparkle!





Here's Your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project using "Sequins".
  • Create  a "Hello or Hi project".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Hello project with Sequins".
