The challenge at The Friday Mashup this week is to:
- Make a project using “Paper Piercing”.
- Or Make a project using the colors “Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red & Early Espresso”.
- Or “Mash it Up” and create a project with the “Colour Combo & Paper Piercing”.
I’ve combined this challenge with the sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop this week. They’ve also given us extra challenge of creating a Valentine’s Day Card with a twist – use a non-traditional Valentine’s Day stamp. I’ve whipped out my Favourite Teddy stamp set again as I don’t use it often enough. I inked up the balloons from Up, Up & Away and “tied” them to the teddy cart. In the Favourite Teddy stamp set there’s an envelope with a heart that I inked up with Riding Hood Red with my blender pen – this seemed perfect for a Valentine’s Day card.
Here’s my card:

I was made a Mashup Glamette this week at The Friday Mashup with this card.
Here’s my 3rd and final post for today. My card tonight is for the challenge at CASE Study Challenges – click here to take you to their blog and check out the creativity going on there. I pulled out an old favourite tonight – Favourite Teddy. When I first heard about Stampin’ Up! I was shown this set and I HAD to have it. It was retired by this time, so my SIL Jules found it on ebay in America for me. I can’t quite remember how much I paid for it, but it didn’t matter and I think I paid as much for postage as I did for the stamp set!
CASE Study Challenges muse this month is Jen Rzasa and this is her card that we used for inspiration:

One of the girls from work came by for a visit recently with a new baby. I realised I didn’t have a supply of baby cards on hand, so I sat down and came up with the following simple baby cards. I’ve used retired sets called Favourite Teddy because I love this teddy and use him/her from time to time and Wild About You.
While I was in the baby card mode I also quickly whipped up the following cards. Not sure if you can see the colour clearly but I’ve used early espresso – they kinda look black in the photos.
Hope you like!
