For our challenge, I was inspired by a piece of fabric which featured the colors of Soft Sea Foam, Pool Party, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede along with black outlines of florals.

I played around with the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Suite. I made a watercolor piece using the Pigment Sprinkles in Melon Mambo and Mango Melody, which turns into a pretty coral-red shade. I cut out the patterned die twice to cover the panel. I used the Peaceful Poppies Sequins and the Foam Adhesive Strips to build my shaker piece with. I also backed it with Vellum Cardstock, which makes the sequins inside stand out a bit more.

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).

I decided to start with the Shine Bright Bundle again and the Wrapped In Plaid 6" X 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper with golf foil accents. I love plaid paper! If you've been around this blog for very long, you probably already know that. And, I love the detail in the Stitched Brightly Dies, as they do all of the work for you.

TGIFC214 - Create A Set

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this week's TGIF Challenge, and this week we focused on Create A Set of cards. It's such a great idea to create a few extra cards when all of your supplies are out and your creativity is already working! You can use the same layout or the same colors or the same stamps and papers so you don't have to reinvent the wheel as you create.

I wanted to play with the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set again before it retired, and I wanted to feature effects and the same set of colors.
