Fairy Celebration ~ #TGIFC101 March Madness

Happy Friday friends! Welcome to another fun Friday with the TGIF team! Today is the last day of  the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration special! I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Calgary, Alberta. If you are in Canada & you're looking to get in on a last minute Sale-A-Bration special, feel free to click on the shop button & visit my online Stampin' Up! shop today. It's your last chance! But no pressure! For this week's TGIF challenge, the theme is March Madness, which means anything goes! Check out all of the designer's cards over at the TGIF site, find some inspiration, create a card, & upload it to your blog or social media site to share with us! It's a tonne of fun! Who knows? You may just be chosen as a winner for this week! So what are you waiting for? Let's get your Stampin' game on & have some fun!

The card I created for today started with a simple layout, one similar to the sketch below...

I really wanted to share the layout with you 1st, as I know sometimes to look at a card and break it up into elements to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) can be a wee bit challenging in this wonderful, yet sometimes overwhelming world of crafts! So look at the layout 1st, then look at the colour combo, and then look at the card. Hopefully by breaking it up into a few elements, you can envision something that you can create with your stash at home! Remember ... it doesn't always have to be matchy matchy! As much as I love a good cup of matcha, that is not what we are getting at here! Seriously! Just find even ONE element you love from anywhere, and create a project that incorporates that element! When you are finished you will be amazed at the work of art that YOU created, with a little inspiration from somewhere or someone else!  

Now let's not get side tracked with the matcha! Here is the "Anything Goes" card that I created for this week. Feel free to be inspired & copy and share away! I'd even like to see you create your own spin on it & change it up a bit! Remember to share it with us over at TGIF! We want to see your projects too! Send me a message if you have any questions on how to do so! 

Are you curious as to how I created the sparkling doily and cardstock on my fairy card today? Well it was easy-oh-peasy with the Stampin' Up Heat & Stick Powder. All you need is this magical powder combined with some VersaMark Ink, the Stampin' Up! Heat Tool, and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (all of which you can purchase through Stampin' Up! via my online store). I even put together a video tutorial for you today that shows you step by step how to use this fun stuff! Check it out below if you are interested!

Thank you so much for visiting today! Leave a comment if you wish! & Please share your project with us over at TGIF this week! I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
