Fancy Friday - Annual Holiday Mixer

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 use something from the Annual catalog and something from the Holiday catalog to create a project.

I finally got some time to create for the Fancy Friday challenge this month! I have been super busy these past few months and always miss the deadline. I also was super happy to get time to use the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and Apple Builder Punch from the Holiday Catalog. I paired it with the Birch Stamp Set, Neutrals 6x6 DSP and the Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments from the Annual Catalog. Another interesting mix is the maple leaves in the Gathered Leaves Dies from the Holiday Catalog work well with the maple leaves in the Seasonal Layers Dies from the Annual Catalog. Great way to stretch your dies over two catalogs!

Tips and Techniques: 
*Stamp the pumpkins in the color ink you wish then sponge the 
same ink all over lightly going past the edges. Punch out.
*Die cut out the maple leaves then sponge Old Olive Ink to distress them. 
Crunch them up to add even more textures.
*Love the cork look? Cut those tags up and use just a sliver of it 
under the greeting.
*Die your Linen Thread with Blends! I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue 
to set the curls in place.

My color combination is:
Old Olive, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake.

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 - Joy of Giving Tag Kit

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!

 Let us get right to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we are sharing some projects featuring our Joy of Giving Tag Kit for our November 2019 interactive rewards program. Every year we select one of the fabulous kits in the Holiday Catalog to show the versatility of the kit outside of its intended use.

For my sneak peak, I added some other products from the Annual and Holiday Catalog. The DSP is Wrapped in Plaid and has a red as well as the Shaded Spruce from the Joy of Giving Kit. Some other products like theL Linen Thread, Gold Metallic Pearls, Vellum and the word die Merry from Word Wishes Dies add just the right mix to complete this card.
Susan and I had to laugh outloud because are layout and kit items used are very similar. This is a first in our nearly 3 years of doing Crafty Carrot together!
Be sure to check out the rest of the hop!
