Fab Friday 96

It was so cold here last night! Down to 65!! It’s too early for that! LOL! The day was nice and sunny and warm! Card Class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was great! I even got a card made in between classes and worked on some ideas for upcoming classes! Andrew and Kayleigh came and they got me two awesome birthday cards and a gift card to the Apple Store! My friend Ebony gave me an amazingΒ shaker card too! I’m going to post some of the Birthday cards that I received over the weekend! I meant to do it this week but things just got busy! Second day of Card Class today and I have to somehow find a way to get my Parent’s from the airport tonight. They are having a great time and my Mum even said that she can believe that they come home already. I’m so happy that they went away and got to really enjoy themselves!

Well, as luck would have it it’s a Fab Friday and this tome we have some colors for you…


Today is my last day of the challenge that Linda came up with, five days with one stamp and die set! I really did have fun doing it and I love the set! My card for today begins with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the wheat image from the Concord and 9th Give Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Soft Vanilla right on the card front. My tag is cut out of more Ivory 110lb using the Hero Arts Infinity Tags Dies. I wanted the reinforcement to be green so I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Hero Arts Emerald Green Ink to color the card stock. I stamped the wheat again in Hero Arts Mustard Ink and then added the detail layer with more Emerald Green. The sentiment is from the same set and is heat Embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum that is then adhered around the back of the tag. Tied through the top of the tag is a long piece of May Arts Natural Twine. I adhered the tag to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Then added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Sparkling Clear Sequins to give the card a little more shine! I wasn’t too sure about the colors but after I made the card I really do like them together! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Designer’s cards and enter yours into the gallery! Thanks for spending a little of your Friday with me! Have a fantastic day! πŸ™‚

  1. Super cute card! Love the colors. Wow, you’re parents trip was way too short, especially after all that aggravation! For all of you!

    1. Thank you Sandy! Yes, they agree that the trip was way too short too! Next time they will go for longer! See you later! πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful card, Justin!! Love the doublestamping you did with the wheat – beautiful effect!

    I’m loving this weather – temps got down to 46 overnight where I live. Perfect!! Love the nip of fall in the air – my favorite time of the year.

    1. Thank you Christy! I like the subtle almost perspective effect that it gave the card! I was pleasantly surprised by the result! I do enjoy the cooler temps at night but I do miss the nice warm days! πŸ™‚

  3. Looks like a saying I need to get! This card is so amazingly beautiful Justin. I really do like the color combo but most of all I love what you did with it! I am jealous of your ability to emboss on vellum! This truly is one of my favorite cards EV-AH!

    In the low 40’s here last night. Wonderful crisp morning with sunny skies and, for a change, no wind. Busy day today. I’m so happy to hear your parents had a great time and I’m sure you’ll find a way to pick them up and maybe even on time! LOL

    Love and hugs to you my friend and wishing you just a Fantastic Friday. XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, I definitely thought of you when I stamped that greeting! LOL! Thanks Grace! Embossing on Vellum is super easy! You can do it too Grace!
      I know that you are loving the current weather situation! My parents did really enjoy themselves, I’m very happy that they went! Got to the airport way early, better than late!
      Love and hugs to you!! XOXO πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Justin,
    Yep, Fall is my favorite season or is it Spring? Probably Spring after a cold winter.
    Beautiful card!

  5. Well you rocked this stamp set and die! Beautiful. Thats what i love most about late summer, the warm days but cool nights. Although today the humidity is back.

    Apple gift card…..perfect for you

    1. Thank you Linda!! I did have fun with the challenge and will do another one soon! I’ll let you guys vote on which set next time! I too enjoy the cool nights! Not too bad here. Yes, Andrew knows me well! πŸ™‚

  6. I have enjoyed seeing your different designs using the same stamp and die set this week. Linda did a great job giving you this challenge. You are probably anxious to get on with other sets after five days of this one. I hope you have picked up your parents and they are safely home by now. It’s been a long day for them and you, but you are used to them. lol Have a great Saturday, my friend.

    1. Thanks HJ! I did have fun doing the challenge! I was really happy to get to use some new stuff! My parents were picked up without incident! Taylor even came along for the ride! LOL! Yup, I’m definitely use to them! Hope you had an excellent Saturday! πŸ™‚
