Fab Friday 42

You have taken you sweet time getting here Friday, but I’m glad that you have finally arrived. And you are kind enough to bring with you an extra day off! It was gloomy here all day yesterday but didn’t rain until this morning. They have changed the wether and it’s supposed to be nice on Sunday and in the 80’s on Monday. That’s a much better outlook for the first official weekend of summer don’t you think?! I did have a nice evening, I met up with my friend Joe for a drink. He’s back to LA on Monday. I’ll have to see about going out there to see him I think!

The Friday is extra awesome because it’s a Fab Friday week! This time we have a fun color challenge for you…

Fab Fri 42 5-23-2-14


I love it when we have colors that I wouldn’t think to put together! I decided that funky colors needed a funky card! Mine starts off with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The strips of DSP down the left and across the lower half are both from the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper Pack. On top of the strip down the left is a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. The rectangle is a piece of Pool Party that I stamped with one of the stamps from The Open Sea inked in Pool Party. My flower is from the Simple Stems Stamp Set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana and cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits. For the greeting I used one of the stamps from the A Round Array Stamp Set inked in Summer Starfruit and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Finally, my little balloon is from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set and is also stamped in Summer Starfruit and cut out with my Paper Snips. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A little bit of collage feel but not cluttered. Like I said, I love using different fun color combos! So there is my card for the Fab Friday challenge, now go and see what the rest of the Design Team has for inspiration and let’s see what you have, enter your card in the gallery! Always great to see you visit, make sure that you have a Fabulous Friday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin! Great card! You’ve made all the components come together nicely. Do you normally finish off the inside of your card or do you leave it blank? Hope your day goes by quickly so you can get started on your nice, long Holiday weekend! Have a great rest of your day!

    1. Hello Kare!

      Thanks you! I normally leave the inside blank, I think it;s better to write down what you want to. My day was rough one, you’ll hear about it tomorrow! LOL! I hope you have a nice evening! 🙂

  2. Awesome card, love the collage effect. Interesting use of Round Array, I’m ashamed to say i have the set and never used it. I really like it in the center of the flower

    1. Thank you Linda! Collage is definitely my favorite style! I didn’t think I would use it a lot but I have. It sort of wanted to be in the middle of the flower! 🙂
