FM178.. We're in Stitches!

Hello all! Tara here as your hostess this week. I keep thinking about bringing my sewing machine into my craft room, but somehow it never makes it up there. Until now! This week, I wanted to create a mashup that would force me to pull out the little lady and find her a permanent home in my crafty space.

I'm challenging you to use some vellum, and for a little bit of extra spice, mash that up with some sewing (or faux stitching, etc).




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a Project using "Vellum". 
  • Create a Project with "Stitching (Sewing or Faux)".
  • or Mash it up! and create a Project with "Vellum and Stitching".

Rock Pick for FM176!


Thanks so much to each of you who played along with this week's sketch, the emboss resist technique or mashed them up together.  I enjoyed looking at and reading about each of your cards!  Now on to this week's Rock Star and Glamettes...




I love Amy's fall-colored card.  She did a wonderful job mashing up the sketch and emboss resist technique to create a lovely thank you card.  Congrats, Amy! ~ Sara

FM176 Sara's got a sketch!


Welcome to another Friday Mashup!  Sara here bringing you a simple sketch to use and a fun technique to try.  I love the emboss resist technique because I've seen so many beautiful things created with it, and it involves sponging...one of my favorite things to do on cards.  I hope you're ready to get inky because I can't wait to see what you create using this sketch and technique.


Sketch created by: Sara

  • Create a project using the "Sketch".

Lisa's Rock Star Pick!


Thanks so much to everyone that gave the animal shaker cards a shot, they were all terrific! It wasn't easy but my Rock Star and Glamette are.....



I love Diane's unique take on the shaker card! She did a great job mashing up the challenge by using the tail of a peacock for the shaker portion. Awesome job Diane! ~ Lisa




Loni's sweet owl just makes me smile everytime I look at him with that fun hat and stars in the shaker portion! Fantastic job mashing up the challenge Loni! ~ Lisa

FM175... Shake It!


Happy Friday! Lisa here with another Friday Mashup challenge for you!

This week I'm combining 2 of my favorite things....shaker cards and animals. It's that time of year when I start counting down the days to snow and of course that makes me think of shaker cards. I also love the abundant wildlife here in Alaska, they provide wonderful inspiration for my crafting.

So lets see what you create with animals and shaker cards! What inspires you? We here at The Friday Mashup cant wait to see your creations!




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a Project using "Animals". 
  • Create a "Shaker card" project.
  • or Mash it up! and create a "Shaker Card with an Animal".
