Stampin' Up! Iconic Occasions ~ #TGIFC107

Happy Friday to all! For those who might be new here, I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator located in Calgary, Alberta. Another Friday means another post with the TGIF Challenges Team! This week we are creating Sympathy, or Get Well Cards. Sadly, these are cards that are always helpful to have on hand. So what do you say? Stop by the TGIF Challenges site & check out all of the inspiring cards our designers have created. Get stamping & join us in creating a few of those necessary cards we all should have in our stash for when you unfortunately don't think you'll be needing them, but do.

I really wasn't sure what I was going to create for today. To be honest, yesterday morning I began rummaging through my stash for something that might spark my sympathetic venture. The more I delved I came across this hidden gem of a stamp set...

I thought, "OMG!!! I have had this set for over two months & I have not even inked it up yet! Shame on me!"

So it began ... the marvels of a crazy stamper. & Here is what came out of my marvelous mess! If you didn't know already, I am a very untidy crafter. The bigger the mess, the bigger the masterpiece. That's my motto & I'm sticking to it!

Don't these colourful band-aids remind you of the fun variety packs you can purchase for your kids? Seriously, these colours almost make me wish I had an owie! I truly think I need to mass produce these cards for all of the clumsy pals I have in my life. Ironically, I know about five people off the top of my head that could benefit from this card right now! So there ya go, a mass production is in order! 

If you are curious as to which Stampin' Up! colours I used on today's card well they are none other than Berry Burst, Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant, & Daffodil Delight. Berry Burst is one of the new Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Colours! Isn't it gorgeous? I can see a lot of lively colour combos popping up in the future with this beautiful shade. If you wish to save this combo for future reference, I have created a digital swatch for you below! You're welcome!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I would truly love if you left a comment. Or better yet, join in the fun with us this week! Create your own masterpiece, upload it to your blog or your favourite social media site and share it with us over at TGIF Challenges! That would be awesome!

Hope you have a marvelous weekend & happy stamping!

  1. What a GREAT color combination! I don't often use Tempting Turquoise OR Elegant Eggplant and I never would have thought to put them together, but they look fabulous! This is such a cheerful card, it would be bound to cheer up anyone under the weather.

    P.S. As a mom of the 3 year old, these colorful bandages are definitely familiar. The injury does not have to be severe (or even real) to warrant wearing a fun bandaid!

    1. Thank you so so much Natalie! 💖💖💖 Anything to add some cheer to the day right? 💖

  2. I love your bright, colorful card!
