Fancy Friday - Fancy Floral

Hey everyone and welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! 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 our theme is "fancy floral", so anything floral goes! There are quite a few flowery stamp sets, accessories, and papers in the catalog that would fit well with this challenge. I also paired it with the Free As A Bird Bundle.

Bird Ballad Suite

I thought, for this challenge, it would a great opportunity to utilize that stunning Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. For my card, I wanted to use one of the frames in this paper pack. I makes for the perfect layer of floral details and adds so much texture and dimension. 
The background was made by creating a watercolor wash, using Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove, and Mango Melody Inks. I cut out a pair of birds from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and added it to my panel. I finished it off with a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.   


I hope you have enjoyed my cards for today and don't forget to keep hopping for more inspiration. Up next on the hop is the incredibly talented Jeanna Kay. You will be blown away by here designs!

Designer Series Paper Promotion - Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop


Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Designer Series Paper Promotion Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration, so get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. Just over the moon about what she has created!


Today, we will be sharing some projects that showcase some of the lovely Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog because there is an amazing sale happening now through September 30th. During the Designer Series Paper (DSP) Sale, you can buy 3 packages of select DSP and get 1 free! This sale has been very popular in the past and has returned again! Be sure to grab yours and take advantage of this amazing offer!
   

My projects feature the Follow Your Art DSP and the It Starts With Art Bundle. For my first card, I wanted to show how beautilfully this DSP looks when you layer it. The beautiful artsy patterns and soft tones make for lovely layering. 


Here's a close-up of the layers:



For my next design, I wanted to use some of the elements and images from the DSP as a backdrop for my main focal point and sentiment. I fussy cut a few of the art/crafting utensils from the paper. This is one of my favorite things to do with my patterned paper. Stampin' Up's beautifully color coordinated designs make it so fun to pair the paper with the matching stamp sets.



Here's a closeup of the effect:


My final project uses the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. I think this kit makes a perfect gift for any paper crafter and I wanted to design a tag to go with it. To get the coordinating colored ribbon, I just took some Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon and used my Light Flirty Flaming Blends to color it a soft pink.I love being able to customize my embellishments!



Here's a detailed photo of the tag:




These papers were so inspiring and I loved coming up with unique ways to use them on my projects. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs (full list of supplies below). Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages. They have some pretty amazing projects to share, using some of the other patterned paper featured in this promotion.

Stamp Review Crew - Dino Days

the stamp review crew
Hello Peaches! I'm here to participate in another fun blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! If you're not familiar with The Stamp Review Crew , they are a group of very talented international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Monday of each month to bring you all kinds of delicious inspiration that features a different stamp set each new Monday. 


The blog hops are archived at The Stamp Review Crew blog and you'll be able to click through the hops at any time, going directly to the posts as you wish for any of the hops. Just click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also. If you have already started the hop, you will have come from the lovely and creative Mary Haugen.

DINO DAYS BUNDLE

For this hop, we are featuring the Dino Days Bundle. I have made quite a few cards and projects with this stamp set because it's just too cute!

I created an embossed background using one of the dies from the set. 


 It's a super easy technique. Here's how you do it:
  1. Take one of the dies from this set and place it on your cardstock panel.
  2. Set up your embossing machine just as you would to emboss, except I add the Silicone Craft Sheet underneath the cardstock panel.
  3. Run it through multiple times until you've create a fun embossed/textured background. 
Here's a close-up of the finished product:


Well, that's my card for today's hop! Thanks so much for hopping along! Your next stop is my lovely and talented crafty friend Lou Kitzelman! Check out her gorgeous blog and projects!
