It’s a Black Fab Friday — FabFri32

It may be Black Friday here in the U.S., but it’s also a Fab Friday.  I much prefer participating in Fab Friday over Black Friday!  You won’t find me out shopping today!  We have a fun color challenge for you today, so if you decide to take a break from shopping, we hope you’ll play along with us.

I saw a card made by Dawn McVey that I really wanted to turn into a Stampin’ Up! card.  I love her style, and cased this card of  hers.  I used the Wishing You stamp set, and a mix of dsp patterns.

Presents CASEYou can check out what the rest of the design team made at the Fab Friday site.  And I hope you’ll play along with us and post your card to the gallery.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Same Sketch, Different Card

Be of Good CheerThis card uses the same sketch I used on yesterday’s card.    With a different stamp set and different color combination it looks quite different though.

I covered the tag with washi tape, and used another roll on the card base.  The other strip that looks like washi tape is actually a stamp from the Tape It set.  I love that set because it lets you make faux washi tape in any color you like.

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I Love Pink and Gold — Monday Montage #6

Monday Montage Banner -- October

We have another Monday Montage Blog Hop in store for you this evening!  I hope you’ll follow along the blog hop trail and see what all of the designers have made.

I have made a new discovery — I love pink and gold together!  I made a couple of Christmas cards using these two colors together and I threw Coastal Cabana into the mix too for a nice contrast color.

Snowflake WishesI love the look of gold embossing, and used that on both of the snowflakes.  I also threw in some sequins.

Another discovery I made is that pink and gold do not photograph well together on my camera.  Here’s a picture of my other card.  Please forgive the terrible picture.  It looks so much better in real life.

Well, you’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s fantastic blog.  If you’d rather work your way backwards (you, rebel!) you can do that too and hop on over to Wendy Weixler’s amazing blog.  Either way, just work your way through the nine other blogs to see the treats they have in store for you.
