Seeing Pink for TSOT 297

Good morning!

I have totally lost track of time and am a day behind!

For Try Stampin' On Tuesday's challenge #297, we have a fun sketch with the optional window element.

I took that element to the max and wanted to primarily feature that. I love window cards!

At first I wanted to make a Christmas Card. Then, I thought to make it monochromatic and non traditional in color. Then I scrapped the Christmas idea altogether and decided to use SU's Mountain Adventure set with my MISTI to make sure it lined up perfectly the first time. If you don't have a MISTI, it's a must have! (You can also make your own, just do a quick pinterest or YouTube search)

It needed a color pop, so I added a teal-ish glimmer paper (non SU brand) and the closest matching ink color, Coastal Cabana (retired SU in-color), a small vellum banner and bakers twine. The Wink of Stella glitter brush pen added the perfect amount of snowy glimmer to finish off the card. 

I hope you decide to play along with this challenge! There are multiple ways to play! Join us on Facebook or at the Try Stampin' blog! 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a stamptastic day!

Try Stampin' on Tuesday Blog Hippity Hop for 295!

Good morning!!

It's feeling a little more like winter up here in Alaska! Not much snow yet, but hopefully soon? The masses are worried about the lack of ground insulation for buried pipes and whatnot, and I'm over here like "But I like not using a coat and snow boots"


So for this blog hop, we have a TON of talent in store! We had a great layout to use and it's the last of our Christmas showcase.

 Fun, right?

Here I go again with the Simply Scrappin' kits! I'm kind of in the mood to use all my old retired stuff. It's kind of a personal goal to get a lot of it all used up. Baby steps. Because I am a hoarder. Don't judge, we're all in the same boat. ;)

I used some old and a touch of new with the Thankful Banners stamp paired with the Sparkly Seasons sentiment.

NEXT on the hop, Vicki's Blog!
