Friday Mash Up 87- Sending Latte Love!

Hey everybody!! It's Friday! Woot! My favorite day of the week!!
That means it's also time for The Friday Mash Up, and I'm super excited because I actually succeeded at MASHING the two challenges! it's been weeks since I was able to pull that off!

You can choose to make a project using this gorgeous photo of winter gifts or you can create a gift project. What does that mean exactly? Create tags that could go on a gift, or maybe a gift card holder...anything that can be used on or for a gift! Of course you can also mash it up and create a gift project that uses this fantastic photo for inspiration!

Photo Source

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project using "the inspiration photo".
  2. Or Make a"Gift project".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "project for a gift using the inspiration photo above".
 
 
I have to start out by saying that this project was originally inspired by my friend, Christie Daughtery (AKA The Stamp Shack Lady!) Love this girl! When I was a new demo a few years ago, I saw her present at Regionals and I loved her! I started following her blog, we became cyber friends, then friends in real life at some SU events and this past fall on the SU trip, our hubbies even became friends (well, at least they drank beer together and tolerated our shopping escepades and stampin' talk!!) So, with all that said, thanks Christie for ALWAYS inspiring me! :-)
 
These adorable coffee travel mugs can be found at your local Dollar Tree! Yep, they are 1$!! And, considering they're from the Dollar Tree, they are surprisingly nice! I think they would be so fun to give as a gift with a Starbucks gift card, or maybe filled with some kind of yummy coffee treat!

My tag was fully inspired by the photo.I cut the base using the Two Tags Die and Soft Sude cardstock. Polka Dot Parade DSP in Marina Mist, Silver Glitter Paper, Snow Flurries Die, Whisper White Stitched Ribbon, a button and your almost done! The sentiment was typed up on My Digital Studio and printed out. So easy!

I was going to make these for my club girls as a Christmas gift. Then I realized I would be making 36 of them... Sorry y'all! Mama just doesn't have the time! So, instead, I went and bought the cups (which by the way filled the entire Dollar Tree basket up to the rim and then required the girl at the register to scan each. and. every. ONE!!!) and my peeps are going to  make their own little tag. Stop back by next week to see it, it's Hybrid!
 
OK, I'm awfully babbly today... Make sure you check out all the other girls at The Friday Mash Up ad come back and link up with us!
 
Have a great Friday!

HSS 146- Deck the Halls!

So are you in the "Christmas Mood" yet? I'm starting to get there... I actually listened to Christmas music today! So, just in time for us to get in gear with all the holiday hoopla, HSS has a wonderful inspiration photo for us this week!
 
 
I kept it pretty simple. I focused on the colors first and use all in colors: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petal. I stamped all the same ornament from Keepsake ornaments and then added lots of Dazzling Details. FYI- go easy... fast is not good! LOL! A little blending of the sparkle never hurt anyone now did it?! LOL!
 
I finished it off with a little twine and a matching In Color Ribbon! Fun and pretty simple!
 
Now, please jump over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and check out the other beautiful designers' creations. Then, return and share yours! Merry Christmas!

Friday Mash Up #86- thinking outside the box!

Oh my goodnes! I'm LATE with this week's FMU POST! Eek! I thought I had scheduled it.. I was traveling yesterday from Memphis to San Antonio.. a 13 hour drive... with three kids and a dog! Am I forgiven????

Hi everyone! I LOVE this week's FMU challenge! Use a NON Christmas Stamp to create a Christmas card! Now that really requires some thought!


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a holiday project using "Non-Holiday Image(s)".
  2. Or Make a project with a "Messy Technique", such as spritzing, smooching, shimmer painting, or splattering with an aquapainter.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Holiday Project from Non-Holiday Stamps and a Messy Technique".


I feel like I cheated... A mailbox is so easy to use... Oh well, I think it qualifies, right?
Once again, I FAILED at the mash up... No messy technique. I was lucky to get this card created at all. You should see my to do list!!

Anyway, this little stamp is from For the Birds. I stamped it on Midnight Muse Card stock. The bird is from another stamp in the same set and it's stamped on Cherry Cobbler.The "letter" involves a little sneak peek for ya! ;-) The shape is a new punch that will be available in the 2013 Sale A Bration catalog! It's a tiny Curvy Label! And it's SO UTE!! The "stamp" image is from Lovely Labels and the holly is from... hmm... I can't remember! When I get back in town, I'll have to go check!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have checked out all the Friday Mash Up Designers first and are now fully inspired to Mash it up with this week!
