Fancy Friday - True Gentlemen Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team).

This a box (I think) that I chose to case. It's simple, but sweet.

Yay You Photopolymer Stamp Set

And here is my card. I cased what is a box I think from page 54 of the catalog. It had a little strip of ribbon, a piece of stamped paper and a stamped background. Plus, I loved the addition of baker's twine and sequins, two of my favorite embellishments!

Fancy Friday - Paper Perfect Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop! I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team)! The challenge this month is the Paper Perfect Challenge. We're featuring several of the patterned papers from the current Occasions Catalog. You're in for a creative treat, so be sure to circle all the way around the hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Krista's blog. Did you see her fun project?!

I'm featuring the Tutti Frutti Designer Series Papers in my cards. I also copied my favorite card from the Sale-a-bration brochure. It featured the Party Panda Stamp Set and these papers, along with this card layout. These cards also use the Fruit Basket Photopolymer Bundle of stamps and coordinating punches.

This first card has a citrus theme, and I used the stamp and citrus slice punch to fill the bowl with punched images. One of my favorite embellishments from this catalog is the Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, featured on all three cards.

For my second card, I stamped several strawberries in the basket, but also punched two to layer on top. I love the sentiments cut up in this way. It matches the fun feel of the patterned papers.

My last card features this fun berry patterned paper. I stamped the bowl, but cut berries and leaves from the patterned paper itself to fill the bowl. I really love these papers. There are some busier patterns, which make a good focal point, and several geometric patterns which make the perfect accent. And, there are lots of fruit images to cut out and feature as well.

Guest Designer for Crafty Carrot Collective

Hello and Happy New Year! I'm starting off 2018 with the fun "task" of being a Guest Designer for my friends at the Crafty Carrot Collective. These four lovely ladies were on the Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team with me, and I also had the chance to meet all of them in person in Canada last November. Left to right, there is Cindy from the US, Krista from Canada, Jen from Australia and Susan from New Zealand. I'm so excited to be guest designing with my talented friends this month!

And here I am! I just figured out that I have been a Stampin' Up Demo since 2002! I'm also a two-time Artisan Design Team member. I really have made so many wonderful friends through this hobby of mine.

Special Guest (1)

Here is one of my projects for this month's program. The Party Pandas Stamp Set is a set you can earn for free when you purchase their February Crafty Carrot program. Aren't these pandas so cute?

WHAT IS THE CRAFTY CARROT CO.?
We're a group of four past Stampin' Up! Artisan award winners. Every month we bring an interactive online program for stampers all over the globe. The whole idea is to help you decide which products to buy and equip you to get the most out of them. We'd love you to be an active part of our wonderful crafting community!
 

WHAT DO OUR ONLINE PROGRAMS LOOK LIKE?
Each month we have at least four online classes within a private Facebook group. These classes are live, interactive and specific so you can craft along right beside us. Projects range from beginner level to advanced and are based around four different themes so you can really get the most out of your stamps. By the way - we know you'll get a lot out of the program even if you don't have the focus products AND you can still join by email even if you're not on Facebook (classes not live in this instance)!
