DYSU Challenge #44-Teal

Hey, hey! It's time for a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! We have a fun and easy challenge this week. We want to see some Teal on your project. You can use a little or a lot!

This week's Sponsors:

The Craft’s Meow

Winner’s Choice of 1 Stamp Set

Stretch ‘n Bubbles

Winner’s Choice of 4 Digis

Copic Marker Scrapbooking

6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America),
Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

I adore working with teal! There are so many colors that it looks fabulous with. For this challenge I was sooo lucky to have this adorable Little Frieda stamp from the Craft's Meow to work with! Little Frieda reminds me so much of my niece, who just happened to have a birthday coming up, that I couldn't wait to make a birthday card.  I love this stamp so much that I made 2 versions of the same card. There is no such thing as having too many birthday cards on hand, so it's all good. lol

This card represents the neutral tones and braids in the amazing inspiration picture.

For this card I went with bright and bold colors-same design, different feel.

Here's a picture of my darling niece-can you see the resemblance (minus the kitty makeup)?

Come on over to DYSU and join in this week's teal challenge!


  1. I love both of your cards, they are really beautiful. I like the image - so sweet.....Love the blue ribbon and the tiny little button on the hat!


  2. Gorgeous cards - adore the first one. Love the little plaited band around the hat. Your niece is rather adorable too - even with the kitty makeup!.
