Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Color Refresh


Hey everyone and welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I’m so happy to be joining this fantastic group for the first time! If you’re new the the Fancy Friday Blog Hops, we are a group of past and current Artisans that get together each month on the last Friday of each month to bring you Crafty inspiration with monthly themes and challenges. I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this talented group! Now onto this month’s focus!


This month's challenge is to use our favorite new or returning colors from the Color Fresh. With so many gorgeous new and returning colors to choose from, I know this is going to be a fun challenge! For my card today, I chose returning colors Coastal Cabana and Mint Macaron, along with the brand new Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam.

 So, funny story about my favorite color choice: I fell in love with the returning color Coastal Cabana after it had been freshly retired. I started as a demonstrator about two years ago, just after the fabulous Coastal Cabana had retired as an In Color. Yet this color could not seem to be forgotten. I'll admit that I was a little heartbroken after discovering it at the point when it could no longer be purchased from Stampin' Up!. Well, I'm sure you can imagine just how happy I am that it has officially joined the Brights Family core colors! Now for my card. 


 For this fun color combo, I'm featuring the Broadway Birthday Bundle. I thought these colors together looked so happy and fun so I figured that they would be great for a birthday card, so this set was perfect!I used the beautifully scripty "wish" word die from the set and cut it from Whisper White Cardstock. To create that fun confetti panel, I took a  2 1/2" x 4" piece of  Coastal Cabana Cardstock and used the Candles and Confetti Framelits Dies and ran it through my Big Shot (once with the die on the top half and then again with the die on the bottom half of the cardstock) to create this fun confetti layer (see photo below). Don't worry about the overlap in the center. It's practically unnoticeable with the "wish" die cut layered on top. I also used that same confetti die to cut some white stars to scatter on my card.


For my base and top panel, I used Balmy Blue Cardstock. I wanted a little bit of texture so I used the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which adds just the perfect amount! Next, I used Soft Sea Foam Ink to stamp "Make a" repeatedly all over a circle that was punched using the Starburst Punch


To finish off my card, I added some Silver Mini Sequin Trim. I hope You have enjoyed my card for today and don't forget to keep hopping for more inspiration. Up next on the hop is the lovely and talented Rochelle Blok. I look forward to seeing what gorgeous creations she has designed with her favorite colors!
