TSG175: No patterned paper (Friendbots)

This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week, Kim O! She has challenged us to make a card or project without using any patterned paper…she sure knows how to hit us where it hurts, yes? LOL!!

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project without using patterned paper, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (October 8th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG175 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Head on over to the TSG Blog to enter this week’s give away!


I’ve strayed away from my usual coloring method of Prismacolor Pencils lately and instead using my Prismacolor and Twin Touch markers. I love the look of the color pencils but sometimes it seems like too much work with all of the blending that I do so I like to switch it up every now and then.

For this card I used the mini set Friendbots because this adorable image is so much fun to color! I went with a simple layout (with no DP of course) but added a bit of texture to the card with stitching, dimensionals, glassy accents, rhinestones and sparkle from a stardust gelly roll pen.


Stamps- Friendbots
Cardstock- White, Rockcandy from Bazzill
Other- Rhinestones (from Taylored Expressions), dimensionals, Glassy accents, sewing machine, Twin Touch markers
