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.
