It is time again for our monthly Fancy Friday hop! If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. My friends and I want to be able to share with you our ideas in a monthly format. We will use different themes each month – sometimes colors, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a stamp set focus. The one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy! Over our year together on the ADT, “fancy” became our word to describe the best projects, the best new clothes, even the best pedicure colors. Now we want to share with you our take on “fancy” each month. This month we have a theme challenge that the whole team will be using as inspiration – Fall!
I love Fall! The colors, the crisp air, pumpkins, apples, did I mention the crisp air?!!! We are starting to get our first tastes of that in Virginia and I could not be happier! I pulled out some old favorites for this card today. I started by stamping the leaf from For All Things onto the grid print from the Typeset DSP with Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze (both were stamped off first). Then I punched them out with my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. I stamped the sentiment from the set using Early Espresso. Next I lightly inked up Dots for Days (the background stamp) and stamped it off some before stamping onto the Crumb Cake card base. For some extra interest, I cut a piece of my fall go-to, 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon. I attached it using fast Fuse and it sticks perfectly! I popped the sentiment panel up on Dimensionals and attached it (I did put another dark punched circle of card stock behind it for stability). Finally, I pulled out this leftover twine from a kit last year and tied it up with a button. Ahhh…..fall colors make me almost as happy as the crisp air!
I hope you will be inspired by all the lovely creations in our hop this month. These ladies never cease to make me want to run to the stamp room and create! I’m so glad you stopped in today!
The amazing Mercedes Weber is up next! Wait until you see the fancy project she created!
