Fancy Friday - A Holiday Basket of Wishes

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back with some NEW fancy friends too! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey. Glad to have you here!
 Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month we are having fun with the upcoming holiday season! Are you ready? We were to pick a favorite Stampin' UP! Product from either the NEW Holiday Catalog or the Annual Catalog and run with it.

Sometimes you see a stamp set and think "I would never buy that, right? Well this was one of them for me. I got this Basket of Wishes Stamp Set in my Artisan quarterly box so technically it was free BUT after using it for this blog post challenge, I would DEFINITELY buy it!  I enjoyed coloring the images with my Aqua Painter and Blender Pen with inks.
Here is the first card I created. I love this one! The red strawberries in the teal carton with the burlap ribbon and pretty doily just says "country farm". The Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper has some really nice patterns that works well with this stamp set too. I used the Aqua Painter with inks (Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron) on Shimmery White Cardstock.
 Do you know how hard it is to photo copper foil? OY! I love this copper foil dotted pattern DSP from the same pack! I hope you can see how great it is. I added a scallop circle of the Copper Foil Sheet with the Layered Circle Framelits Dies. I used the Blender Pen with inks (Soft Suede and Cucumber Crush) on Shimmery White Cardstock.
This last one was a combination of the last two. Burlap, Doily, Ribbon Trio and another pattern from the DSP. I also used the Aqua Painter AND Blender Pen with the inks here. Very therapeutic to color these in and I highly recommend giving it a try!

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
