This is one stamp set that you may have missed in the Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog. It is super cute, fun and sweet! I love the images and encouraging greetings in this set.
 We are pairing it with the Gingham Gala DSP and the Gingham Gala Sequins from the Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog. I choose to feature the watermelon image on my sneak peak card. I used Stampin' Blends of Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick to color in the watermelons. I also pulling out my Stitched Labels Dies to add some textures and layers to my card. 
I hope you liked my watermelon card and thought...

Fancy Friday - An Occasions Case

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I loved working with each other on the Artisan Design Teams so much that we decided to continue on with a blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways each month! These are a group of past and current Stamping' UP Artisans that have become fast friends thru the amazing Artisan journey. 
Glad to have you here! We have 18 of us this time so don't miss a one! 
 
Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds! (color, sketch, stamp focus, etc) This month's challenge we were to CASE (copy and share everything) a sample from the Occasions Catalog! The layout on this card from page 38 really stood out to me. I love the three panels and the focus slightly to the right! I have been holding out to ink up that Flowering Desert Stamp set and this was the perfect time to pull it out and play. Colors are Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Tranquil Tide, Granny Apple Green. Lots of fussy cutting!
Hope you like my card for Fancy Friday this month!

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Incredible Like You

Hello friends and welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! We are Stampin' UP! demonstrators and Artisans from all over the world that got together to form this interactive program where you can learn and participate with us each month! 
 Let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we are sharing some projects featuring the Incredible Like You Stamp set for our April 2019 interactive rewards program. The stamp set is amazing on it's own without the Incredible Like You Project Kit that coordinates with it. But look at all the pieces you get with that kit! GORGEOUS! 
 I did a little mixing of this stamp set and Project kit for this sneak peak! I am loving the lasercut pieces in the kit so I decided to give the fruit slice one some color. I used Calypso Coral Blends and Daffodil Delight ink on sponge dauber to achieve the look. I paired some of the other pieces in the kit and added texture with the Subtle TIEF on the white background. I love the pop of Coastal Cabana from the stamped greeting! So fresh!
Then I really went "out of the box" to make a matching mini treat bag! I took one of the envelopes from the kit and unglued/pulled apart. Turned it inside out, score on the white/designed strips and folded it smaller. I added a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock to the back of it to close off. Finished it off with a ribbon and tag! On the tag is just more of the colored fruit slice laser cut piece, some stamping and fussy cutting a word from the stamp set. The tag topper part was created with the Tailored Tag Punch. Just slide it into the center of punch, align and punch as shown. The YOU comes from the Celebrate You Dies. And that fun two toned Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon really ties it all together! One more thing, the silver foil shreadie is from last year's Occasions! I had some left over and really adds the silver bling over from the card!

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I loved working with each other on the Artisan Design Teams so much that we decided to continue on with a blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways each month! These are a group of past and current Stamping' UP Artisans that have become fast friends thru the amazing Artisan journey.

Occasions Catalog! My favorite item is the Incredible Like You stamp set. It coordinates with the Incredible Like You Project Kit too!
I was inspired by the colors in the kit and that lovely watercoloring wash as well! I think the stamp set goes a long way outside of the kit which is why it is my favorite item!
I used a variety of products to create this card:
Subtle Dynamic TIEF
Stitched Shapes Dies
Watercolor Paper
Vellum Cardstock
Brights 6 x 6 Pattern DSP (Coastal Cabana)
Iridescent Sequins
Aqua Painter
Ink Colors on wash: Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Geared Up Garage


Hello friends and welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! We are Stampin' UP! demonstrators and Artisans from all over the world that got together to form this interactive program where you can learn and participate with us each month! 
 Let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we share some projects featuring the Geared Up Garage Stamp set for our March 2019 interactive rewards program.
I was so excited to use this stamp set and coordinating dies for my first time ever creating with these Geared Up Garage suite products! However I wanted to take the colors outside the suite and more towards the colors that my Dad would love. His favorite color is the burnt orange or what we in Stampin' UP world would call Cajun Craze. I used lots of embossing powder on this card. Black on the gear die cut and Silver on the oil stain/spill. Lots of distressing too! I tore the edges, crinkled the layer of Basic Black cardstock and used my snips to slash some of the cardstock. I would have used the car from the stamp set but well my Dad is a Dodge/Mopar/Chrysler guy and that car is a total fake Ford Mustang. He might have thrown it away! LOL
 Because it is a Basic Black card base, I created the inside of the card. (Krista would be so proud of me!) It sealed the deal on a great card for my Dad's birthday later this month!
