Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Special Guest - Inspiration from Annual Catalog

Welcome to the 2nd Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!
I am SO excited to join this talented group of stampers led by Angie McKenzie
for this BRAND NEW blog hop. There are 24 of us on this hop so don't miss a one!
The theme this month was to focus on "Inspiration from the NEW Annual Catalog". If you don't know it yet, I actually work at Stampin' Up! as a Concept Artist which means I make several of the samples shown in all of the SU catalogs, promotions, website, etc. (But I also am a proud demonstrator of 12 years!) So what do I do for this blog hop?
I decided that I did not have enough fun with the World of Good Suite samples, 
so I wanted to see what more could I inspire YOU with!  
Some things like:
- In Good Taste DSP woodgrain pattern embossed with the 
Pinewood Planks Emboss Folder
- Adding the embossed coordinates (of the global SU offices locations) multiple times
- Heat Embossing the globe stamp image and adding watercolor washes
 in Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue
- Take the globe stand, shorten it by trimming off then gluing back in place at an angle (this was a a-ha moment that I thought why did I not think of this when I did my suite samples!)
I don't get to blog that often anymore but you can find me on the following:

Stampin Fancy Friday - Shake it Challenge

 Welcome to the LAST official Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
Way back in 2014, my fancy friends and I loved working with each other on the Artisan Design Team so much that we decided to continue on with a blog hop to continue to inspire our followers and stay connected in the one thing we love the most! Over the years, we added more Artisans to our group of past and current Stampin' Up! Artisans that have become fast friends thru the amazing Artisan journey. 

We're shaking things up this year on the Fancy Friday Design Team! This will be our last official 'blog hop' because we're moving in a new direction! Hence the name change to Stampin Fancy Friday and a new logo!
How it works:
We'll be posting a challenge on the first Friday of every month over on Instagram and Facebook. And then we'll show you our team projects as the month progresses. We can't wait to have you around so when you are inspired by our challenge to join, tag us in or use hashtag #stampinfancyfriday

So we are glad to have you here for now! 
We have 29 of us this time so don't miss a one! INCREDIBLE HOP!!!  

This month's challenge is to create a project that shakes cause we are shaking things up on the Fancy Friday Design Team for 2020! Could be a shaker card, use a tassel on a card, jar of tags, whatever you what to make shake.
Over on the Crafty Carrot Collective Facebook Page, we held a fun FREE sneak peek tutorials featuring our February program called Birthday Collection. We each are apart of the Stampin Fancy Friday design team so we thought we would do one more sneak peak with the stamp set we selected for the Birthday Collection.
I used the Birthday Jubilee Stamp set and Jubilee Dies to make a shaker card. I used the Shaker Domes right in the middle of those Blends colored detailed fiesta dies, threw in some sequins from many offerings, added a Best Dressed Tassel and shook it like a maraca!
Interested in joining us on the Crafty Carrot Collective Birthday Collection? There is still time to join by subscription or purchase from one of us in your market!
