Soft Suede

AYSI #196

Whoa, time is a ticking!  We are quickly approaching #200.  

This weeks challenge is to use these three colors or colors close to them...and neutrals only!  Gasp, only?!! Yep. 

This weeks card inspired by February Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up!  Each month they send you a project kit if you are a member and usually it contains a super snazzy stamp set.  
I have several people in my life that need some extra love right now, so this card was inspired by them.  :) 

Hope you play along with AYSI!

Welcome to March!  It's another AYSI challenge!
How do you like this sketch?! Reminds me of a party! 

I chose to use some products from SU!'s Occasions catalog.  Quick and easy with the layers.  What you can't tell is my card is actually a small enclosure card, because sometimes you need a quick card to go with a gift.  Ya know like graduation! :) 

Hope you can play along with us this week!

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!

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!

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!
