Foil Frenzy Happy Birthday for #ttt013

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #013.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Shannon Jaramillo.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the top three squares on the board using the pink, pattern paper, sequin.  I decided to use the Happy Birthday Thinlits from Stampin' Up! and the Foil Frenzy Design Series Paper.  I also added some silver sequins to the Berry Burst card.  
Then since I was on a roll, I decided to make a card in Tangerine Tango.  I have to say I love this Foil Frenzy Design Series Paper.  Thanks for stopping by today. Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for this card:

Half Full Tuscan Vineyard for #GDP102

Today I made an awesome card playing along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP102.  This week is a cool  sketch challenge.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with. 
For this card I used the Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Set (Annual Catalog) and the Half Full Stamp Set (Holiday Catalog).  As soon as I saw the Half Full Stamp Set, I knew it was a must have for me.  I love Merlot, Cabernet, a nice red blend, well, pretty much any wine...lol!!!  
I used the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and fussy cut out that cute little half full glass of wine.  I added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella for that added sparkle.  
Then the background is embossed with the Layered Leaves Textured Folder.  I added the washi tape from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape set from the Holiday Catalog before I ran the piece of card stock through the embossing folder for a little different look.  Thanks for stopping by.  Here are all the Stampin' Up items I used in today's card:

August Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for August 2017. This month our theme is “THANK YOU”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.
For this project I used the August Paper Pumpkin Kit and Supplies to make some fast and easy tags to attach to Thank You gifts.  I cut six strips of Night of Navy card stock at 2 inches by 3-1/2 inches and punched one end using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
Then I added Washi Tape to the bottom of each piece from the Basic Pack 3 Washi Tape.  I stamped the for you sentiment in Night of Navy onto Whisper White card stock from the Labels to Love Stamp Set and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  Then I layered it over the washi tape using the mini dimensionals.
I took the labels that were included in the August Paper Pumpkin kit and embellished them with the leaves and flower cut outs from the kit.  I added a few small pearls to the flower centers as well.  Then I took a little piece of the Night of Navy twine that was included and tied it to the top of the label.  That finished label is then attached to the Night of Navy background using Stampin' Dimensionals.
On the back side of the tag is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 2-1/2 inches by 1-3/4 inches to add a little note of thanks.  Plus all six fit just perfectly inside that Mini Pizza Box holder from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Kitty Cat Punch for #GDP101

Today I had so much fun with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP101.  This week is a color challenge.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with. 
I used the new Cat Punch for focal point of my card.  I don't know about you, but if you have a cat inside your home, you know how much they love those windows!  I decided to use the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies and turned it into a shaker card with the Iridescent Sequins.  
I used the seaside embossing folder on the kitty cat to give him a little bit of dimension behind the window.  I added some Bermuda Bay 3/8 Inch Stitched Satin Ribbon and a bow.  The sentiment comes from the Labels to Love Stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and is punched out using the 3/4 inch circle punch.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.
http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/07/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html
Our theme for this month's highlight is Teachers Gifts.  It is so wonderful to thank our educators for all their hard work and get ideas before the end of the year is suddenly here! This gallery will give you many ideas on what you can do to say thanks to your those very special educators in your life. 
For my project I made a mini treat bag that can be used to hold a little note card and gift card for that special teacher.  
I used a variety of products from Stampin' Up! for this project. The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits has 12 dies with two different word dies as well. I used the Foil Frenzy DS Paper for the base of this and then added the embellishments using Tangerine Tango and Gold.
The FOR YOU sentiment was die cut using Very Vanilla card stock and then I took a gold sharpie and added the color to give it a bit of a tarnished look. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the little die cut bow.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:
