Good Friends

I love a good challenge! I found a new paper crafting challenge site called Tic Tac Toe Challenges! I love the ideas of being able to pick a row, column or a diagonal to give you inspiration to create something new!

I wanted to keep todays project a little more on the simpler side since I feel like I have been doing a lot of layers and embellishments lately. Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Click the image to go check out the Tic Tac Toe Challenge site!


I used the last column on the right Friend, Gold and, Free! I just got this new stamp set in and I couldn’t wait to use the big sentiment! It’s a stamp set called Lovely Friends from Stampin’ Up! I heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder twice to give it some more dimension. I embossed directly onto the Painted with Love designer series paper. I used the sides that do not have the gold foil already.


The card on the left I used a Calypso Coral card base, Very Vanilla card stock layer then the Painted with Love designer series paper. I tied a bow around the card using the Calypso Coral shimmer ribbon from the FREE trio pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Spend $50 to pick out a FREE Sale-A-Bration item of your choice.

The card on the right I used Rich Razzeberry card base then layered Powder Pink card stock on top of that. Then the designer series paper. I tied a bow with the Powder Pink shimmer ribbon on this one.

I wanted to make up a couple so I could mail them out to some of my friends that are always there for me! Remember Galentine’s Day is Feb 13th so don’t forget you friends that are always there for you! Join me for my Galentine’s Day Stampin’ Up! Facebook Party over on my Hope Paper Creations page!
