Fancy Friday - An Occasions Case

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I loved working with each other on the Artisan Design Teams 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 18 of us this time 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 were to CASE (copy and share everything) a sample from the Occasions Catalog! The layout on this card from page 38 really stood out to me. I love the three panels and the focus slightly to the right! I have been holding out to ink up that Flowering Desert Stamp set and this was the perfect time to pull it out and play. Colors are Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Tranquil Tide, Granny Apple Green. Lots of fussy cutting!
Hope you like my card for Fancy Friday this month!

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 Incredible Like You

Hello friends and welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! We are 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 are sharing some projects featuring the Incredible Like You Stamp set for our April 2019 interactive rewards program. The stamp set is amazing on it's own without the Incredible Like You Project Kit that coordinates with it. But look at all the pieces you get with that kit! GORGEOUS! 
 I did a little mixing of this stamp set and Project kit for this sneak peak! I am loving the lasercut pieces in the kit so I decided to give the fruit slice one some color. I used Calypso Coral Blends and Daffodil Delight ink on sponge dauber to achieve the look. I paired some of the other pieces in the kit and added texture with the Subtle TIEF on the white background. I love the pop of Coastal Cabana from the stamped greeting! So fresh!
Then I really went "out of the box" to make a matching mini treat bag! I took one of the envelopes from the kit and unglued/pulled apart. Turned it inside out, score on the white/designed strips and folded it smaller. I added a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock to the back of it to close off. Finished it off with a ribbon and tag! On the tag is just more of the colored fruit slice laser cut piece, some stamping and fussy cutting a word from the stamp set. The tag topper part was created with the Tailored Tag Punch. Just slide it into the center of punch, align and punch as shown. The YOU comes from the Celebrate You Dies. And that fun two toned Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon really ties it all together! One more thing, the silver foil shreadie is from last year's Occasions! I had some left over and really adds the silver bling over from the card!
