Fancy Friday November 2015 Edition
November 19, 2015
Hello and welcome back! Today I have something fun to share for multiple reasons. I was invited to join a blog hop with several creative ladies called Fancy Friday! All of these lovely ladies are amazingly creative, and I'm honored to be asked to join them. We'll be posting once a month, usually the last Friday of the month. But, because of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we're posting a week early this month. Also, we have a Pinterest page with all the projects from the past and present. Just click on the Fancy Friday logo below to get to the Pinterest board! Now, on to sharing my creations for this week along with the other fancy ladies! You might have just arrived from the fabulous Krista Frattin and her stop on the hop.
This month, our theme was fancy Christmas with a non-traditional color combination. I turned to Pinterest to get some inspiration for my color choices, and really like what I came up with. I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay, definitely not a traditional holiday color combo! For my first card, I used the Festival Of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set from the main catalog. I stamped on Shimmer White Cardstock a variety of trees. I created the white tinsel on the Bermuda Bay trees with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder.
I used White Baker's Twine, fringe scissors on the Cherry On Top Cotton Paper Assortment, and Brights Sequin Assortment to complete the card. Both the main tree piece and the greeting are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals too.
Next, I made a really non-traditional card! This uses the same color combo as above, but I used the What's Your Type? Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are so many great shapes in this set, and lots of fun things that can be done with them (besides creating the trendy alphabet they were designed for).
I used the Brights Sequin Assortment again, and made a string of them for the orange tree. I also added some more White Baker's Twine to the top of the card. The greeting is stamped in Versamark, and heat embossed in white.
ETA: I decided to make a couple of Christmas tags also using the same color scheme and theme. I used the Layered Letters Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp to make the greetings, which were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.
Well, that is all for today. To view even more fanciness, next you'll move on to the amazing Allison Okamitsu by clicking on the button below. Thanks for stopping by!
