Family Fun for TSOT #377



Here is my Family Fun card for our 377th card sketch challenge.  Family Fun because this will go to some sweet youngster in the family.  Hopefully making them smile because the little elephant is dancing along the card (on the slider).  Sometimes he will even do a summersault. 😄

Color challenge #4 for Try Stampin'


I always enjoy doing color challenges because then I can use any layout that I want.  These colors have such a wide range of possibilities.  I decided to go with darker shades than what's pictured.  What strikes your fancy when you look at this challenge?  I do hope many will join us it's always nice to see what others do with the colors.

#376 Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not



Hello, I have a fun interactive card for you today.  Out theme is "pop it up".  well my cards front panel will pop and swing out. I used a Crafty Cutts Dies designed by Michelle Cutts called the Flip-Flop  The front panel where the typewriter is will pop out when you pull on the little handle on the side.  By polling and pushing that piece the front panel will pop and swing open and close.  It can be made in three different sized and this is the medium size. Thanks for stopping in and don't forget to check out all the other designers cards AND come play with us!!!  We love seeing all your cards and the ideas you come up with, please remember that we make suggestions for you to stretch yourself but it isn't required. 


I wanted you to see how the front pops/swings out, it will lay completely back.  I wrote my birthday message on the back of the swing section.  I made a small video but when I add to this blog it won't play - anyone know how to do that on a blog?  When I click on the Insert Video icon I can pick a video to add and it seems to be downloading but this is all that comes up, any help would be appreciated. Just leave in the comments if you can help :0)
           Have a wonderful day and remember to do some stamping!!!

Try Stampin on Tuesday or Not challenge 375

It's time again, and our optional theme is Stripes.  Now I just so happened to have cleaned up my desk and found this scrap strip with stripes that I had made for another card awhile ago. Soooo it had to be used on a card for this challenge.  I decided to play with a new set and gear it for my husband.  One of those no special event or reasons other than because I wanted to cards.  I used the die that actually cuts a puzzle to emboss the blue piece beside the stripe piece.  The three puzzle pieces cut out were stamped then cut with the die that matches. 
Remember that our challenges run for 2 weeks, so that gives you plenty of time to come up with something and if you don't want to use the theme that's okay we just want you to stamp.  It is always good to challenge ourselves with something new but doesn't always work out when we get to crafting.  Have a wonderful day, thanks for looking and be sure to check out all the other designers.
