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!

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.

Welcome to AYSI #186
Really can you believe that this is the #186'th design for AYSI?!?!  

I'm loving all the ideas for this banner layout.  I can imagine so many things for it, BUT I can't wait to see what you do with it! 

I used some new designer paper from the tide collection by SU!  Then added some beads for a bit of whimsy.  There is a light texture to my card stock but it didn't show up very well.  
What do you think!?! 
What are you going to come up with?
