Fancy Friday - February 2016 Edition

Hello and welcome back! I'm here again for the next round of Fancy Friday! I'm so glad to be back here to share today. You might have just come from the lovely and talented Krista Frattin. I know she wowed you with her project and I hope to do the same!

This month, we challenged each other to use at least one color that we don't normally use. The first color that came to mind for me was Marina Mist. I have to say after making this card, I'm sorry I have been overlooking this color. It's great for the sky and the balloons here, don't you think?

Perfectly Artistic Paper Meets the Balloon Celebration Bundle

Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card to share here on my blog that was shared on Instagram. Did you know that the Artisan Design Team shares tips and tricks on Instagram on Tuesdays? Just search for the hashtag #adttipsandtricks on Instagram under the @Stampinup account, and you can follow along with us this year!

Here is the card that I shared. I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut my balloons from the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper. With just a little added stamping from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set, and my card was complete! This card really came together quickly. I used Pumpkin Pie ink, and the birthday greeting is heat embossed in white on a piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.

OSAT Blog Hop - Love is in the Air

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm here with our monthly One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! The theme for this month is Love Is In the Air, so I'm sure there will be lots of projects full of heart and perfect for the upcoming holiday. I made some little Valentines that would be really easy for you to duplicate in multiples, as well as a small treat box.
