Fancy Friday - #MailacardMonday 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 9 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 create at least 2 very fancy cards WITH coordinating envelopes of your themed choice and support the “Mail a Card Monday” challenge! The idea is to stamp your cards over the weekend and then mail them out on each Monday. Maybe you need to send thank you cards for Christmas or birthday cards, or someone feeling the winter blues? Let us kick off the year not only creating the cards but sending them!

Here are my two FANCY cards with envelopes that I mailed out on Monday.
I am loving the Petal Palette Stamp Set, coordianting Petals and More Thinlits Dies and the Salebration Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes! Did you know you could earn them for FREE? I think the envelopes worked really well with my cards this week!
 Color combo here is Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Peekaboo Peach, and Flirty Flamingo. Some of the ombre flowers are stamped off for a lighter version of that color. I did a modified version of this eclipse trend. I cut my letters in Whisper White and adhere them temporarily on top of Whisper White piece. Then I stamped the flowers across. Carefully pull up the letters and pop them up in same spot with Dimensionals.
This one just screams CONNIE COLLINS, right? I stamped the flower image from the stamp set in Archival Basic Gray and then water-colored them with Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive. Add some gingham ribbon, linen thread and doilies and that Copper Foil die cut piece from the Petals and More Thinlits.

Some sweet cards for my dear friends that in a time of depression recently was there for me with encouraging words and prayers. I am VERY blessed to have friends like them!

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!

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

We're a group of past Stampin' Up! Artisan award winners that love to share! Every month we bring an interactive online program for stampers all over the globe. The whole idea is to equip you to get the most out of them the Stampin UP! products you buy whether a customer or demonstrator. This is also a valuable resource for Stampin' UP! demonstrators for class ideas and get your customers stamping! It is more than stamping as we build relationships with each other is sharing our love of creating! We'd love you to be an active part of our wonderful crafting community!

I first doubted It was not true but decided to try, when I contacted this herbal physician via his e-mail, I purchased herpes herbal medicine and received it within 7 days and used it as prescribed, I tested negative within 3 weeks use, do not loose hope to contact him early If you need help, you can contact him on email or you can visit his website on or am convinced he can help you too
