Fab Friday 13

Welcome to Saturday! I’ll be your host for the next few minutes! The weather here yesterday was partly sunny and a little chilly but not freezing, so it was a nice day. Work was somewhat torturous as it usually is but it’s to be expected. I hope that you all had a good week and have some fun planned for the weekend. I am going to lay low and see what I can get accomplished around the house.

Before we get to today’s project I have some fantastic news to share with you! Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set and it’s called Designer Typeset! The awesome thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are stamping. They are perfect for… yes, an alphabet! They also work great with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads. This is a limited trial release so make sure you get one while you can, for only $13.95 for a 57 piece stamp set how can you not give them a try?!?! I think you are going to love them. You can see the flyer below and if you want a PDF just click on it. 🙂


Every other Saturday I have a Fab Friday card for you and today is no exception. This time around we have a sketch…

Fab Friday Sketch 13

I really wanted to do a butterfly but as you can see from the sketch that was too obvious! I went with a favorite single stamp of mine instead. The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I used apiece of paper from the World Spectacular Designer Series Paper Pack for the flagged piece in the middle. Next up I cut out a piece of Calypso Coral with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, cut it in half, and did a little piercing with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The image is from the World’s Greatest Stamp and is stamped in Island Indigo on Whisper White. I cut out the image with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and did some piercing along the top and bottom. Some Basic Jewels Rhinestones give it a little sparkle and Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The friend is form the Family Reunion Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo right on the DSP. World’s Greatest… Friend! I hope that you enjoyed my Fab Friday challenge card. Thanks for visiting, you guys are awesome! Have a great day!
