So let us get back to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we share some projects featuring the Tabs for Everything Stamp set which happens to be our product focus for the January 2018 interactive rewards program. 
Naturally you would use this type of stamp set on a planner but you can also use the words for a quick card greeting! Here I used Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide for my color combo. Stamp off the Flirty Flamingo to get the softer pink on the AMAZING. Do the same with Tranquil Tide on the FABULOUS. This is a photopolymer stamp set so this is easy to line up! 

I also took Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide with a sponge dauber to color on the embossing paste with the Party Patterns Decorative Mask. Throw on a nest of Linen Thread, a swag of Soft Sky Weave Ribbon and some Iridescent Sequins to complete the card. 

My customers will be getting this card in the mail to remind them to sign up during November and December to qualify for the January 2018 program!

A little sad change has occurred for the Crafty Carrot Collective. We say farewell to Valerie Moody, our UK Crafty Carrot Demonstrator. She's taking leave to focus on other areas of her life but you'll still see her around in some of our guest spots over the coming year. We wish you well, Valerie, and want to extend a very big THANK YOU for all you've done as part of the Crafty Carrot Co. in 2017. You are a ROCKSTAR!

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!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back together again!!! We loved working with each other 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 14 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 to take the sketch made by the lovely Jen Timko but casing our talented newcomer Holly Stene!
I needed a birthday card for one of my besties and here is what I came up with. 
Colors are Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand and White.
While I was in Banff Canada recently with my some of my dearest stamping friends from all around the world, I attended Allison Okamitsu's Stamping Retreat. She had tons of stamp sets sitting out and this is one that I have not had the pleasure of using yet. Can I say....LUV! I used the Rich Razzleberry ink to watercolor in the flowers. You have to work in layers and letting it dry in between to get the soft coloring effect.
That pattern background layer is from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Many of the patterns are non seasonal and can be used outside of Christmas. I also used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch for the mini scallop edge on the side of layer. See below on where the scallops came from?
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
