Fancy Friday - Floral Frames Bundle

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 16 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 the many bundles from the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog! Join in the challenge and use #fancyfridaychallenge if you post on your social media!
I used the Floral Frames bundle found on page 135 of the catalog. You get Floral Frames Stamp Set and the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies. (Wood #148405 or Clear #148406)
Here are five things about my card if you look closely:
1. Color combo: Mango Melody, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Soft Seafoam, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White. Vellum too!
2. I stamped flowers in Mango Melody and use my Blender Pen to move the color around and add more ink with pen to make them darker on the centers.
3. One of the leaf pieces and label are embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. That TIEF had me at hello!
4. The stamped leaves are from the stamp set and inked in Bermuda Bay like the greeting.
5. I added some Iridescent Sequins Assortment of blue and green. See the one on the petal...covered up a tiny coloring mishap.
Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Rooted in Nature

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 Rooted in Nature Stamp set for our September 2018 interactive rewards program. We are also using Nature's Roots Dies!  But wait there is more next month.....a BONUS tutorial from the AMAZING Stampin' UP! Artisan Holly Stene! Be sure to hop along to see her sneak peak! 
Notes about my project:
I stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze then took my Aqua Painter to lightly color in. I added Petal Pink ink to the Crushed Curry and Crushed Curry to the Cajun Craze to add some dimension to them. I fussy cut the leaves out but there are framelits that cut them out. I did add some texture to the Gray Granite card base with the embossed leaves from the framelits. The Wood Texture DSP piece was embossed with the Subtle TIEF and I love the texture it gives. The twine is Linen Thread and the Petal Pink/Silver Twine together. I took out the silver thread and separated the Petal Pink/White threads.

 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!
