Fancy Friday Blog Hop - New In-Color Combination

 Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back!!! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey. Glad to have you here! We have 11 of us this month so don't miss a one!
Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month we were to create a project using one of these In-Color Combinations you see below in the "flyer".
 I choose a very challenging color combo! 
Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango and the new Berry Burst!

I used the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set and a block style layout on my card. The white gives it a pop of white against all that color.
Would love to have you join us in the Fancy Friday Challenge so make a card or two and let us know in the comments if you did or post on social media somewhere and add the #FANCYFRIDAYBLOGHOP

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop with Touches of Texture

Welcome to The Crafty Carrot Collective Blog Hop! A selection of former Stampin' UP! Artisans from all over the world got together to form this interactive rewards program where you can learn and participate with us each month! Today we are bringing you some sneak peaks into what our June month will bring in advance so you can purchase the stamp set called Touches of Texture. If you have that stamp set, then purchase another wish list stamp set of the same value to enter the program.
 This next month we are using the carryover stamp set called Touches of Texture. Look at all that lovely vintage like layering images! Swoon!
I used a new color combination showing a new In-Color called Powder Pink. It is the PERFECT shade of light pink! My color combination is:

Night of Navy - flower bundle image and greeting
Crushed Curry - New Chevron ribbon and bee image
Pool Party - alphabet splatter and card layer
Powder Pink - long flower smeared image, splatter image on card base

What I like about this card is the easy stamping layers and using one stamp per ink color. It is great for quick make and takes for your customers OR makes mass production super easy for the customer! I whipped up about 12 of these in no time!

Here is how our program works... during the month of MAY you purchase the Touches of Texture stamp set (OR product of equal or greater value) from a participating Crafty Carrot Collective demonstrator using the host code shown below. Then, in June, you will receive the program completely FREE!

  This program brings video tutorials and written instructions by 5 very talented global Stampin' UP! demonstrators into your own home so you can stamp in your own time. 
What is not to love about that? 

Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
