Thankful for Fall Colors — FabFri26

We have a fun color challenge for you over at the Fab Friday Challenge site today:

I love all of these colors individually, and collectively they make such a fun Fall color scheme.  All of these colors are in the Sweater Weather dsp, which  makes it even easier to play with this challenge.

Thankful ColorsI had a hard time getting the Sahara Sand in there, but it’s there — a layer behind the Tangerine Tango dsp, some shading on the stamped image, and the linen thread on the button.

I couldn’t resist making another big bow — I just love this chevron ribbon!

Please play along with us at Fab Friday.  You get two weeks to make something.  You can check out the fab projects that the rest of the design team made at the Fab Friday site too.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

An Elephant Baby — FabFri22

There is a great color challenge for you at Fab Friday today.

I must say that I have neglected Tempting Turquoise for a while now.  Stampin’ Up has come out with some beautiful blues — Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay; and I have been using them so much that I actually kinda forget about Tempting Turquoise.  And it’s such a pretty color!  So I was glad that this challenge came along.

Elephant Baby

I used a stamp set that I just received, Zoo Babies.  The images in this set are so cute!  My kids are really too old for this set and I very rarely need a baby card, but I couldn’t resist this sweet set.  It will be fun to play with it.

I hope you’ll be able to join in this color challenge at Fab Friday!  I always enjoy seeing what you make.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Zoo Babies
Ink:  Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise
Paper:  Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White, I am Me dsp
Embellishments:  Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Circle framelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Pearl Basic Jewels

 

Happy Mosaics — FabFri21

It’s another Fab Friday kind of day!  This week we have a fun sketch challenge for you:

I knew right away when I saw the sketch that I wanted to make another Polaroid/Instagram style frame on this card.  What threw me for a loop was the arrow.  Then I remembered that the Hello, Lovely set has an arrow image.  So then I knew what stamp set I wanted to use.  But what to put in the frame?  I decided to let some dsp be the star of the show, and I love the fun, bright colors on this pattern.

Happy Mosaics

I hope you’ll join us in this challenge at Fab Friday!  Meanwhile you can check out what the rest of the design team made here.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Candles — FabFri20

It’s time for another Fab Friday challenge, friends!  And this week we have a fun color challenge for you:

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the new In-Colors, and this week we are featuring all of them.  If you don’t have them yet, you can choose similar colors (but hurry and get these — you’ll love them!).

I chose to use a new wheel called Birthday Candles for my card and made each candle one of the colors.  I know I cheated a little in that I used an additional color on my card, So Saffron, for the flames on the candles.  I just couldn’t get happy with it without using a yellow for the flames.

Birthday Candles

One of the new products in the new catalog that I was so excited to see is the Squares Framelits.  They make it so easy to make a frame, like this Polaroid-style frame that I used on this card.  Very fun!

I hope you’ll join us in this challenge.   You can check out what the other designers did with these yummy colors at the Fab Friday Challenge site.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
