Fancy Friday - Tropical Vibes

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 13 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's challenge is to use one of these stamp sets that have a tropical vibe to them and create any type of project like a card or 3D. Join in the challenge and use #fancyfridaychallenge if you post on your social media!
I was so excited to use the Tropical Chic Stamp Set for this challenge! Funny thing is that I only used the hibiscus flower image (colors Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove) from the set and just one of the die cuts (Lemon Lime Twist) from the coordinating thinlits. I was drawn into making the background leaves in a Blueberry Bushel watercolor. I used Shimmery White paper, embossed it and then using my Aqua Painter with the ink to color the embossed leaves. I did add some Lemon Lime Twist ink in some of the blue leaves as well. Of course, I fussy cut out the greeting!
  My friend Susan said it looked like a Hawaiian shirt!
I can see that cause I could use a Hawaiian vacation right now! LOL

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Stitched All Around

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! 
Let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we share some projects featuring the Stitched All Around Stamp set for our August 2018 interactive rewards program. We are also using Stitched Labels Framelits Dies!  But wait there is more next month.....a BONUS tutorial from the AMAZING Stampin' UP! Artisan Lauren Alarid! Be sure to hop along to see her sneak peak! 
I used two of the Designer Series Paper on SALE right now! 
The Garden Impressions and the Wood Textures. Each one of our Crafty Carrot Designers are using the Stitched All Around Bundle with all of the DSP on sale! 
Be sure to pick yours up and the stamp set or bundle today!
Notes about my project:
The flowers and leaves were fussy cut from a pattern in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack. I know not everyone loves fussy cutting but this is a great way to stretch your DSP. I used the stitched edgelits in the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies to make the white layer look like a stitched rectangle. I added the sentiment and floral border from stamp set in Shaded Spruce Classic Ink. I took another pattern of DSP and added it to the envelope flap. I just love these stitched dies! 

 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!
