Design Team Challenge Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  Happy Leap Year!!  Are you excited about the extra day of the year.

Do you know what a leap year is?

A leap year, where an extra day is added to the end of February every four years, is down to the solar system’s disparity with the Gregorian calendar.  

I just learned that watching a TV show.  All I knew was we had an extra day every four years in February.  LOL!!


Well to your luck, the So Suzy Stamps Design Team is taking advantage of this day and having a fun Blog Hop. If you arrived from So Suzy Stamps blog, your on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to go back to the beginning as to not miss a thing!!

I’ve added a full list down below just in case you get lost!

The projects made for this hop are a big secret between the design team.  Now of us know what stamps we are working with.  Super fun.  So the big reveal is for everyone.

I was sent two sentiment stamps!  I think these stamps were chosen for me because in April I turn the BIG 40!!!

Take a look at my first card:



I’m excited about turning 40!  Its a big year for me and I plan on doing big things.  When I think of 40 I definitely think of Sexy!  Not just in body shape but in my mind as well.  I’ve grown so much and I’ve learned so much in the last 39 years that I am ready to hit the ground running.

Take a look at my second card:



Did you know that watercoloring can be sexy too!  LOL!!  When you add the silver foil corset on top, boy o’ boy!!


Here’s a closer look:


Foiling has become one of my favorite crafting thing to do. I love how it turns out each and every time.

The company that made this corset die went out of business a last year so this die isn’t available any more.

So what do you think?  Are you ready to be sexy at what ever age your going to be this year?

I paired this set up with my awesome Confidence is Sexy sentiment stamp from So Suzy Stamps.

The pattern paper that I used is Stacked with Love from Stampin Up!

I used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to add dimension to the front of my card.

Here is how I created my card:

1. I die cut the corset from black cardstock and the background corset from pattern paper. I glued them together using glue.

2. I die cut the border using one of the boarder dies at the bottom of the my black card front.

3. I added a small piece of pattern paper behind the border die cut with adhesive.

4. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and add white embossing powder and heat set it.

5. I ran my card front through my embossing machine use the polka dot embossing folder.

6. I adhered my corset to the front of my card using dimensionals.

7. I added a rhinestone to the front of my corset.

Super easy and elegant.  So what do you think?  Let me know below in the comment section.
