Happy Friday everyone! I’m extra happy today because you know that mental health day I have talking about for so long, well… I finally took it! I’m off from work today! I’m going to catch up on some things around the house (it looks like about 20 people live here at the moment!), get some crafty time in and take a nap so I can do the 3:30am ride to the airport! I’ll be going to Manhattan straight from the airport to take a nap at my friends house!
Before I get to today’s post you may be wondering why my Fab Friday is actually on Friday this week. Well, the wonderful Mindy Backes, the creator of Fab Friday, has asked me to join the Design Team! How cool is that?!?! I have played along in every challenge since they started the blog last year. What an honor to be on the team with all of the other talented artists over there. Ok, enough gushing now on to the challenge. We have a nice color combo for you…
I have had the Button, Button Stamp Set for a while and haven’t really used it much. I thought this would be a neat way to break it in. The base of my card is Pink Pirouette Card Stock. The background is made with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Sahara Sand and cut it in half. A quick run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and it kind of looks like a table. I stamped the jar image from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set in Lucky Limeade on Vellum Card Stock. The Cannery Framelits Dies cut out the stamped image and a blank one to go behind it. The buttons are from the Button, Button Stamp Set and are stamped in Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral, punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch and the 1/2″ Circle Punch, the ones in the jar are adhered with SNAIL and the ones on the outside are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then used some vellum adhesive to adhere the stamped jar to the blank one and some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold that to the card too. The greeting is from the Made for You Stamp Set and is stamped in Calypso Coral. I used the Scallop Oval Punch to punch it out and backed it with a piece of Calypso Coral that I punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Still more Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. I love the way the jar stamped on Vellum looks, especially filled with the little buttons. I hope that you enjoyed my first Deign Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge. Make sure that you go and visit the blog to see what all of my fellow designers have for you and make a card of yours to enter. Thank you so very much for checking in with me, I hope that you all have a great Friday! 🙂
