Simple Stamping

How about some simple stamping this week?  Stampin Up! has been talking about getting back to the basics and simple stamping recently.  I think it's a great idea to slow it down a bit and just use the basics.  


Here is your challenge to figure out what you think of when you think of simple?! What will it be? 


When I think of simple I think of paper and ink.  Of course I had to color in the happy and add the butterflies, but at the end of the day I think of paper and ink.  Such a simple quick card that would be great to give to someone that needs a pick me up!  

Hope your able to play along with AYSI this week!

AYSI Challenge

Are you ready?! For another Challenge?!


Your challenge is to use the above items to make a card!  Full disclosure I didn't have Poppy Parade to use, crazy right?! I felt the same inspiration and used Lovely Lipstick instead.  


Also, you should know that this was a quick and easy card, contained no stamping, but quick cutouts, paper and ribbon.  

Thanks for playing along with AYSI!

AYSI All about the metal

Do you love metallic? Gold or silver?  
Welcome to another challenge where it is a bit more open ended.  Your task is to use at least one metallic product in your design.  


Here is my card for the week.  I used some clear patterned paper with the gold polka dots, plus a gold clip, and gold thread.  Just the right amount of bling!

Hope you chose to play along with us this week!

WelcomebacktoAYSI


Welcome to 2019 AYSI! 

It's another great week with another great layout!  



Do you LOVE ruffles like I love ruffles on a card?!?! 



I used the ruffle embossing folder from Stampin' Up! to give the great texture on this card.  Plus, I added in so BRAND NEW Occasions products that just came out.  Ohhh, the butterfly products are amazing!  

Hope you play along with us this week at AYSI!

AYSICircleCircle

AYSI #190

Do you like a good circle? I'm mean a good decorated circle? ;) Check out this great circle design! 


Something about circles just works for me.  I love polka dots and love this layout!  


I used some brand new products from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions catalog that comes out in January.  Ahh, gotta love perks of attending on stage!  The butterflies are actually designer series paper that match up with the new butterfly punch.  Love that!!  

Hope you play along with us this week!

Shades of Red

It's SHADES OF RED AYSI Style time!  


Your challenge is to only use shades of red in your project and complete your project in under 10 minutes.  Good luck to you!  


My card took me 9.04 to complete.  Let's just say I was sweating to get it done!  Using Lipstick Red, one of the new colors from Stampin' Up! on this project.  Turned out super cute I think.
