Fab Friday Challenge Blog Sketch Challenge 117 #FabFri117 Play Along with a New Challenge Every Friday! #challenge #papercrafts #fabfriday Today I am playing along with another challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog. This week’s challenge is a sketch (shown to the right).  I have made a list of stamp sets that I need to spend more time with and the Weather Together Stamp Set was one of them.

As I was working on laundry, an idea came to me.  As soon as I had a moment to slip off to my craft room, that idea soon came to life.  My Aqua Painters are my most frequently used tool in my supplies stash.  I just can’t seem to create without them…reason: I LOVE the result.  The soft look of watercolor, the depth and dimension, just calls to me. It will continue to be at the top of most commonly used techniques with my paper crafting.

I decided to hit up the 2016-2018 In-Color – Sweet Sugarplum.  I hadn’t used it in awhile and really wanted my umbrella to be bright, like a beacon of light in eye of a storm.  Although Sweet Sugarplum isn’t necessarily bright, it does look bold against the Whisper White Cardstock and Soft Sky Ink behind it.  The color combination used in this card were determined by me to be “Hoot-a-Riffic” so I made my signature color combination for you to pin.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in. This created a landscape A2 card that fits perfectly into a Medium Envelope (Available in Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Clear)
  • I ran the Card Base through the Big Shot with the 2nd Largest Sized Circle (2-11/16″) from the Layer Circles Thinlits Dies to create the opening to showcase the circle of rain behind the umbrella.
  • The Umbrella, Umbrella Handle, Clouds, and Raindrops (all from Weather Together) were all stamped with Basic Gray Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  The Umbrella, Handle and Clouds were all cropped with the Big Shot and their Coordinating Framelits from Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies. They were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Rain Drops were cropped with the Largest Sized Circle (2-15/16″ also from Layering Circles Framelits Dies).  I took and Aqua Painter and added some Soft Sky Classic Ink for color. This was adhered to the inside of the card, behind the opening.
  • The “I’m Here for You” sentiment was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, Snipped with the Paper Snips and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I strategically added some Iridescent Sequin to finish the card.

Fab Friday 116 Color Challenge Stampin' Up! Berry Burst, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay at Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart

I have been checking out different challenges to participate in and noticed this Color Challenge 116 over at Fab Friday.  I tend to keep my cards to 2 or 3 colors so I thought the use of 5 colors on one card was intriguing and wanted to give it a shot.  I have been meaning to put my Wood Words Bundle to use but just hadn’t had the right moment, until now.

The bunch of flowers stamp was perfect to incorporate all the colors from the challenge and was so easy to do using our Stampin’ Write Markers.  I first stamped the image in Basic Gray Archival Ink so the images wouldn’t bleed when I colored over it with the Stampin’ Write Markers. I didn’t bother too much with staying in the lines as I wanted the colors to stand out!  I even added color over the more solid floral images and I like the depth that they Basic Gray adds.  Stampin’ Write Markers are available to purchase in Color Families.  You can also purchase the Many Marvelous Marker Tote that includes all families except for the In-Color.  The tote comes with room to add the In-Colors to the case. Stampin' Write Markers by Stampin' Up!

All images were stamped on my favorite Shimmery White Cardstock.  The largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits was used for the rising sun.  I used an Aqua Painter to apply Daffodil Delight Ink, light in the middle and heavier around the edges. The Rooster was stamped in Berry Burst and the Welcome Sentiment was stamped in Tangerine Tango.

The Wood Textures Suite and Wood Words Bundle is one of my favorites in the New 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  Simplicity and a little bit of Country Feel remind me of my childhood.  I have used the Wood Textures DSP the most out of all the new Designer Series Papers in the catalog.  It is very versatile, especially with the large array of wood tones in one pack.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Bermuda Bay Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored at 5.5 in to make a stand-up tall standard size card.
  • The Wood Textures DSP was cut to 4 in x 5.25 in, placed in-between the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and zipped through the Big Shot.  I just love the look it gives. I wrapped Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and then Linen Thread around the DSP prior to adhering it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a bow with the Linen Thread and adhered it where I wanted it with a Glue Dot.
  • I stamped the Floral Image in Basic Gray Archival Ink and trimmed it down to 2 in x 3.75 in.  I colored the images with the Stampin’ Write Markers and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The largest Stitched Framelits Circle was used for the sun and colored in with an Aqua Painter and Daffodil Delight Classic Ink. I let it dry completely and then stamped the Welcome sentiment in Tangerine Tango and then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Rooster was stamped on Shimmery White with Berry Burst In-Color Ink and cropped out with the Coordinating Die and Big Shot. It was adhered with, what else? Stampin’ Dimensionals.
