stampin’ fancy friday – color challenge…

05.17.2022…..Happy Tuesday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a “Color Combo Challenge”, which is ALWAYS fun!

For my color combo, I chose two of the new In Colors…Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party…to use for my color combo. I paired them with Pacific Point, which is actually a color I don’t use very often. This may just be one of my favorite color combos ever!

Be sure to join us to see what our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team created and…the gorgeous color combos they chose! We have 24 projects to share, and each with a different color combo!

Then you create with a color combo of your own or use one from our team, share your project on IG or FB and tag us by using #stampinfancyfriday or #fancyfridaychallenges in your post. We will share in our stories to inspire others as well!

everything wonderful…

05.09.22…..Happy Saturday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I’m sharing a card that I created with lots of amazing products from the brand new 2022-2023 Stampin; Up! Annual Catalog! Actually, the title of this blog post sums up the new catalog really well…..it’s just full of everything wonderful!

What I love about Stampin’ Up! products are how well they work with each other. On this crd, I used several new products, not all from the same suite, collection, or bundle….but they all blend together perfectly!

a little watercolored flower…

05.09.22…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I’m sharing something a little different. It’s a little watercolored flower, and I decided it would be perfect for this shabby chic frame that I’ve been holding on to for years. The inspiration for the flower came from the amazing Shannon West, who shared her tutorial video on Youtube yesterday…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmmvaVRSrHs. She watercolored a beautiful, hand-painted flower, which I absolutely adore! So…..I thought I would give it a try.

I was really happy with the flower that I painted, but then….I ran into a bit of a mishap with my Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink. So….I added more Daffodil Delight and Crushed Crushed around the flower, along with some splatted water drops. Even with my little mishap, I’m still excited with the way it turn out, and I can’t wait to try another one…maybe in a different color combo. Thank you bunches, Shannon West, for sharing your talent!

stampin’ fancy friday – case a fancy friend challenge …

04.18.22…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a “Case a Fancy Friend” challenge! This means that when you see a card and are so inspired by it…then you copy it (or selective copy) and share what you create! We each chose one of our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team members, and “cased” one of their cards. How much fun is that??? That being said, I decided to choose the amazing @zsuzsanna_balazs!

Be sure to join us to see what our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team created and just who on the team they CASEd! We have 27 projects to share, and each one is AMAZING!!!

Then…..when you CASE one of our SFF teammates, share your project on IG or FB and tag us by using #stampinfancyfriday or #fancyfridaychallenges in your post. We will share in our stories to inspire others as well!
