Fancy Friday - New In-Color Fun!

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 12 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 create a brand new color combination using at least one of the New 2019-2021 In-Colors or use all of them!
My color combination is:
Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green and Petal Pink
I stamped the flower and leaf image with the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Versamark on Shimmer White Cardstock and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I used my Aqua Painter to color in the images and I was not worried about staying in the lines either. I mixed the Pretty Peacock and Granny Apple Green on the leaves. Once I stamped the greeting Blessed in Pretty Peacock, I then fussy cut it out. It took patience and some time to carefully cut around the word but I love some it looks.

Hope you like my card for Fancy Friday this month!

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Sailing Home

Hello friends and welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! We are Stampin' UP! demonstrators and Artisans from around the world that got together to form this interactive program where you can learn and participate with us each month! We always have fun stamping, learning and sharing!
We are so excited because it is 
(see below for the link to group)
 Let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we are sharing some projects featuring the Sailing Home Stamp set for our August 2019 online class program. 
Look at that whole suite of goodness to the right! 
I decided to use a neutral color palette for my sneak peak and break away from the blue/green in the suite. So I used Soft Suede, Gray Granite, Kraft, Whisper White and Basic Black. I love that we have Kraft card bases and envelopes in the new Annual Catalog! Did you see them? They are from the Magnolia Lane Suite and can be found on page 171. I just cut my piece of Come Sail Away pattern to fit over the silver rectangle accents. The rest came together quickly with the stamp set and coordinating dies. I used the Nature's Twine on this card and made it go thru the anchor before knotting the ends.
You know what else is AWESOME about this August FREE program?
We have a GUEST DESIGNER! She is currently on the Stamping' Up! global Artisan Design Team and a great friend of ours! Be sure to stop by her blog and say hi!
Thanks for hopping by today and checking our sneak peaks out! We hope you will join us as we share all month long how to make the most out of your stamps!

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
