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 10 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 we are focusing on a color challenge! Check out our inspiration photo below, with the colors of Mango Melody, Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. Join in the challenge and use #fancyfridaychallenge if you post on your social media!
This was a CHALLENGE! (insert face plant into hand) I tried to add that Pacific Point blue into the mix of my fall theme and it just did not work. I also switched out the Whisper White for Very Vanilla.
I am such a rebel I know! LOL
I had this piece of Smoky Slate with the Tin Tile TIEF sitting on my desk from another project in process and it started from there. I recently got the Falling for You Stamp Set which is a favorite of my samples in the Holiday Catalog. I stamped the leaf in Rich Razzleberry on Shimmery White cardstock. I added Mango Melody into the bleed of Rich Razzleberry with my Aqua Painter. I love this look on fall leaves! I embossed the Powder Pink with the Subtle TIEF and tore it. Added some Very Vanilla Solid Baker's Twine behind it. Instead of gluing each of those in place, I did the Sue Plote's method - STAPLE IT! LOL I really miss our Stampin stapler we sold! I colored some Very Vanilla cardstock with a swipe of the Mango Melody ink pad and then die cut some pieces from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits. I finished off with the Silver Leave Trinkets and called it done. 
Not too shabby, eh?

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

Every month we bring an interactive online program for stampers all over the globe.

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!

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Country Home

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 Country Home Photopolymer Stamp set for our October 2018 interactive rewards program. We are also using some of the Country Lane suite products!  
Notes about my project:
I wanted to do an overall white theme fall card. The trend is white HOT right now! I stamped the milk can and floral array in Memento Ink (they are spaced apart to give room for the center greeting layer) and used awesome Stampin' Blends to color them.  It helps give a pop of color against the all white. I used Calyspo Coral Dark, Old Olive Light, Crumb Cake Light, Daffodil Delight Dark, Pool Party Light, Pumpkin Pie Light and Smoky Slate Light. I love love love love that Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder! YOU MUST GET IT! You can do so much with it and I will be showing you how on my tutorial in October! See it below on the frame? I will share that as well!
Don't those projects from the Holiday Catalog look so warm and inviting?
