FabFri46: Grungy Butterfly

Hello and Happy Friday! I'm having a bit of a sad Friday because I am not in Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up convention. I have gone twice before, but because I am not working and my business is really just to support my hobby, I can't justify the expense of going each year. I aim for every other year, which means that next year I AM THERE!!!! It is fun to see all of the pictures that my stamping buddies are posting, so I live vicariously through them this year.

Even though I am not at convention it is still a Fab Friday and time for a fun, bright, and cheery color challenge. What do you think?

And here is my card...

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Gorgeous Grunge, So Many Thanks
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Butterfly punch, rhinestones

I decided to go for a CAS design for my card. My stamping time is very limited this summer because I am continuously interrupted by the kiddos. When I do get a chance to stamp, I need to finish quickly, so CAS is the way to go.

It's your turn to come and play along. We'd love to have you join us!

FabFri45: Just Sayin'

Hello and Happy Fourth of July to my American friends! I hope all of you enjoy a fun and safe holiday today. In addition to July 4th, it is also Friday and Fab Friday! We have a new sketch challenge for you this week.

And here is my (flipped) take on it...

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Just Sayin'
Paper: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Very Vanilla
Ink: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss
Accessories: Big Shot, Banner Framelits, Blackberry Bliss ribbon, Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks, Sponge Dauber

This card is not at all what I had in mind when I sat down to stamp, but my original idea just wouldn't work out. I had MANY interuptions while trying to stamp, so I decided to go with a quick and easy design. I love the new masks in the new catalog. They make such fun backgrounds! I also really love this color combination. Yellow and purple just naturally look nice together, but the super saturated shades in Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss are extra nice together.

Now it's your turn. Come on over to Fab Friday and play along with us. We'd love to see what you create! Pin It
