The Cat's Pajamas - TCP Tuesday Challenge - Flowers Bloom

Hey there, stamping friends!
It's time for a new TCP Tuesday Challenge...this time it's all about PATTERNS!  Oh, how I love patterns!  

Here are the FUN stamps and CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas that I used on my  patterned card today!

The Bitty Banners CutUps are the perfect dies to make a play on patterns!  After cutting them with three different patterned papers, I displayed them in banner-like fashion with a bit of twine.  To finish of this layered card, I added a stamped sentiment from the Nature's Hello stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Verve Stamps - September Diva Inspirations Blog Hop

Hello, Verve Stamps fans!

It's time for the Verve Divas to bring you our monthly Diva Inspirations Challenge and Blog Hop!
There are TWO $30 gift vouchers to the Verve store up for grabs this month and two ways to win! First, comment on the design team's blog hop posts (linked below) for an entry in the first giveaway. Then to be entered into our challenge prize drawing, go get inky and link up your take on the challenge. You have until October 5 to link up. Feel free to play along with the challenge as many times as you like. Verve stamps aren't required to play, but we do smile a little brighter when we see them!

The changing colors of autumn is always such a treat. Like a paintbrush came and colored the world. One of my favorite trees around the neighborhood turns a brilliant purple in the fall, and is so beautiful against the blue sky. So while some may find this a wintry inspiration, to me a bit of regal purple and a touch of sky and earth will always be fall. Follow the color pattern, or take your inspiration from the graphic, either way it's sure to be lovely! We can't wait to see what you create!
Click here to link up your challenge entries
Challenge deadline: Wednesday, October 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!

I stamped that GORGEOUS flower from Kindness Matters using a tone on tone look...delicous purples...then, I layered a few fun papers together along with some cuts from the Great Kindness Die Set!  A few sprinkles of sequins later and my card was ready to send out to a special friend!

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!

SugarPea Designs - S2R Blog Hop - What's Moo?

Hey there, SugarPeeps!
I'm so excited to share a fun project with you today as part of the Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop!  Boy, oh boy!  Last month's release was AMooooozing!  Agreed?!  

Here are some of the fun new release products that I used on my card today!

I have been saving these three patterns (my absolute favorite ones) from our new release Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection for our fun blog hop today!   After cutting the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and layering them up, I stamped, colored, and cut the Barn to be Wild stamps and SugarCuts for a fun farm scene.  The sentiment from Barn to be Wild is displayed at the top in a banner/tag-like fashion...and a peek of wrapped thread for some added texture complete the card.

Would you like to WIN a $20 gift certificate to spend on some SugarPea Designs of your own?  Please visit with each of our design team members listed below and leave a comment for your chance to win!

Enjoy the rest of the hop with lots of creative projects from the other SugarChics!

Stacey Schafer - That's me!

 Enjoy the rest of the hop!
