Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Trendy Large Font

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back!!! 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! We have just 8 of us this month 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 we were use a stamp set that had a large font. I selected the Sorry For Everything Stamp set. Take a look below at it. It is a great stamp set of sentiments but not a single supporting image. I then picked Jar of Love with those beautiful layered flowers, soft color combo of Peekaboo Peach, Calyspo Coral, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Night of Navy, and the Wood Textures Designer Series Stack. The Jar of Love also has a matching Framelit set called Everyday Jars but I wanted to just show how you could use the stamp set alone.
And here is what I came up with:
Couple of tips: Stamp off the Calypso Coral flower layer before stamping on the full inked Peekaboo Peach. Stamp off the Daffodil Delight with the two solid flowers image and then the next layer in Crushed Curry in full ink. I also stamped off the tiny flower with Night of Navy which makes a softer blue. One last thing I needed to add was the pieces of Delicate Doilies. Something I learned from the AMAZING AWESOME INSPIRING FANTASTIC SPECTACULAR Kimberly Van Diepen!!! "Just add a doily to it!" Love that lady!
I also creating a matching envelope with the remaining piece of Wood Texture pattern DSP and stamped the images right on it. 
Would love to have you join us in the Fancy Friday Challenge so make a project and let us know in the comments if you did or post on social media somewhere and add the #FANCYFRIDAYBLOGHOP

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Coffee Cafe

Welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! A selection of former Stampin' UP! Artisans from all over the world got together to form this interactive rewards program where you can learn and participate with us each month! Today we are bringing you some sneak peaks into what our September month will bring in advance so you can purchase the stamp set called Coffee Cafe. If you have that stamp set, then purchase another wish list stamp set of the same value to enter the program.

 This set is so popular and many samples are out there BUT we promise to bring 5 totally different ideas that you have not seen before! It will be worth it!
I decided to go a different route with the color combo on this project as I was inspired my a coffee mug that I gave my Mom as a gift recently. I used the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack and the color combo of Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Sweet Sugarplum to make a more feminine coffee card. Did you see that little heart in the stamp set? Perfect for a stamped background!
Here is how our program works... during the month of August you purchase the Coffee Cafe stamp set (OR product of equal or greater value) from a participating Crafty Carrot Collective demonstrator using the host code shown below. Then, in September, you will receive the program completely FREE!

  This program brings video tutorials and written instructions by 5 very talented global Stampin' UP! demonstrators into your own home so you can stamp in your own time. 
What is there not to love about that?

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

The uber talented Jennifer Frost over in Australia is next! Hop on over there and say hello!
