Friday Mashup #43–Try Something New


My sister Nina invited me to card with her this evening, it has been quite a while since we’ve had the chance together, life keeps getting in the way.

I had to do this Friday Mashup challenge twice because I tried a new technique, but it just did not work out.  I had to scrap my first attempt and go for a second.  I am happy with the results of the second one though. 

This weeks challenge:


  1. Make a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Or Make a project using "Something NEW in your stash". (Stamps, ribbon, pretty paper...anything!)
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "using the Sketch & something NEW in your stash".

I chose to use something new – that being the paper I chose – I’ve been eyeing it up in my “special” stack.  You can’t really see it but the icing on the cupcake is all shimmery with glitter!



Designer Paper – Creative Imaginations by Barb Tourtiollote (cupcake paper) 

Designer Paper – Victoria Paper: Walker by 7gypsies

Designer Paper – Wassail spruce

Random ribbon from thrift store.

Adhesive Gem from Studio 112

I wrote the sentiment with a gellyroller

Isn’t it funny how sometimes simple and fast is best?
