As You See It Challenge #4

It's been almost a month already that we have been playing along with the As You See It Challenge blog!  It's been TONS of fun already.  

Here we go!  Challenge #4

It's a dandy.  Don't you think?  

I decided to go ahead and use Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock with some matching designers series paper from the Soho Subway (my fave) pack.  Added lots of detail with the Pamplona Potpourri stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, and the Many Thanks stamp set.  

Here is a close up where you can see the butterflies that I punched out and layered onto Early Espresso cardstock.  I also used the dotted ribbon scallop punch to give another layer in front of the ruffled ribbon.  

Hope you enjoyed the challenge this week!

As You See It Challenge #3

Whooo Hoo!  It's a new week & that means a brand new challenge from the 

When I saw this layout I fell in love with all the layers and texture.  
So without further adieu here is what I came up with.  

 The first shot is of course a close up of all the texture that I used in my card.  We have the houndstooth embossing folder, burlap ribbon from the Holiday Catalog, the Top Note Die for the Big Shot, then of course Gorgeous grunge & Fine Feather stamp sets.  These are two of my ALL time favorite stamp sets.  

Here is the end result.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out this week.  Hope you enjoyed it too.

As You See It Design Challenge #1

I'm so excited to be part of the Design Team for the all new As You See It Design Challenge Blog.  I'm designing with a bunch of great friends & Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from Canada and the U.S.  
Each week there will be a new card layout design that will be highlighted on the blog & also my cards for the week will be posted here.  Of course there will be a weekly card challenge on the design blog.

The first layout is a great one that I'm sure you'll LOVE.  Very hip and modern.

So without further adieu, here are my week one cards:  

I guess you could say this week I love pattern.  

The first card is a great birthday or even a girls night out party card.  I think the Happy Hour stamp set is super cute.  It has some great words along with all the drink glasses.  What I love most about this set is the pattern within the glasses.  

The colors that are used are Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.  Did you notice my washi tape flags?  Yep, that's the new washi out of the holiday mini along with the great stripe designer series paper.  

Why Hello There!  
I flipped the layout just a tad this week to match the great designers series paper.  See those rings (almost like coffee rings) on the paper.  Yep, they came that way on one of the sheets Epic Day This & That paper.  On the left side I stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake to give a bit more texture.  Then I stamped Oh, Hello in Espresso from the Oh, Hello stamp set.  
The flags are all from the Epic Day paper too.  Add a little Baker's Twine and a Naturals button and you are all set to go.  

Hope you enjoyed this week's challenge and make sure to visit As You See It Challenge Blog for great cards from the rest of the Design Team.
