New Designer "SQUARE CARD" challenge!


GOOD MORNING my sweet creative friends & welcome to another:

Being that my design team is super busy working on sneak peeks for our upcoming new release happening next week, I will be hosting this challenge! I thought it would be would be fun for ALL of us to create a "SQUARE" card! It can be ANY size you want, just as long as it is a "SQUARE"!  Since my AWESOME Hubby's birthday is this weekend, I made this card for him! Yes, I KNOW it's not screaming a "MANLY" card, but I tried coloring it using "masculine" colors! ;)  Basically I just stamped my AMAZING new "Cartoon Cloud background" stamp (which will be available for pre-order next Wed, July 10th), then I paper pieced all of the images! I stamped all the images onto white cardstock, colored them all in & cut them all out by hand!  This adorable stamp set is called "Birthday Buddies"! The sentiment is from one of my faves "Many Greetings"! OH, I also added glossy accents on his eyes & the balloons!

Here is the inside! I know I wanted to write him a message on the inside, so I just stamped the cute little sentiment that is included in "Birthday Buddies" in the lower right hand corner!

Supplies used:
~ Birthday  Buddies
~ Many Greetings
~ Cartoon Cloud Background stamp (will be available for purchase on Wed, July 10th)

Here is my video for you today!
Okay, here is our lucky winner from our last "BLING" challenge!

***My design team has taken the week off to prepare for our BIG release next week! I am SO EXCITED because we have some FUN stuff headed your way! I am going to do something different this release.

BUT, here is the BONUS part, you will be able to see the ENTIRE release that day! Isn't that EXCITING???  We will still proceed w/the sneaks as usual so you can see how each new product can be used & get TONS of inspiration for when your stamps/dies arrive to you!

Have a FABULOUS weekend & I can't wait to see ALL of YOUR "Square" cards for this challenge! Thank you all for stopping by & I will see you back here soon! xoxo

    1. You don't have to use every item of mine, just one sentiment would be PERFECT my friend! Hope that helps!
