Fancy Friday - Color 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 12 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 have a color challenge inspired by a recent Stampin' UP! project for demos. You can take this color combo and run with it in either feminine or masculine style.
I recently bought the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set from the Occasions 2018 Catalog. In that catalog, it is paired with a great card kit but look closer at this stamp set as it is a keeper! I love that large font HAPPY BIRTHDAY image!
Here is my project for this color challenge. I focused on the Pool Party being the main color with small bits of the Emerald Envy and Night of Navy. I used the Pocket Framelits to create my focal layer and bent the edges back to make it pop up off the back layer. Some sponge daubers to "color" in the flowers. I added "MY FRIEND" from the You're So Sweet Stamp Set. Super easy for a card class I think and you could change the colors for variety.
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!

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with All Things Thanks

Hello friends and welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! We are a selection of group of 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! 

So let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we share some projects featuring the All Things Thanks Stamp set from the Annual Catalog mixed with some great new items from the Occasions Catalog which happens to be our product focus for the March 2018 interactive rewards program. 
 I totally love this stamp set! It was one that I got right away when it came out and it is well used now! I was so excited to pull it out again! Then I saw the Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper Pack and my jaw dropped! SO CUTE! I had a dual duty here as I need some quick and easy little thank you cards to leave on fellow teammate's desks. The greeting was perfect as I was thanking them for making my recent birthday very special last week.
These tiny little cards are 2 1/4" x 2 1/2". I use Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy. I punch a 1/8" hole and threaded the Whisper White Baker's Twine to make a bow. I inked up the top half of greeting with one ink pad and then did the bottom half in another ink pad.

Are you inspired yet to join us? Promise that it is going to be educational and informational but so stinking FUN! Great for customers AND current Stampin' UP! demonstrators! You can get lots of ideas for your classes at a small price and less time designing!
