Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things. Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy! If you hopped over from the amazing Marisa Gunn, welcome to the next stop. For November, we are all working with a sketch. And you know I cannot resist a sketch!!
I thought the sketch was a perfect one to show off this fun coffee cup set from Stampin’ Up. It is called Merry Café and it can be found in the Holiday Catalog. It is a sister set to the Coffee Café set from the main catalog and the dies from that set are used for both. Fabulous! I chose to do a quick watercolor on the cup using Soft Sky ink after stamping the cup, sentiments and snowflakes in Versafine Ink. You want to make sure you use a water safe ink when you stamp. After cutting them with the framelits and the Big Shot, I just popped them up on Dimensionals for the image panel. To keep with the sketch, I added a strip of Soft Sky card stock along the side for a simple extra border that is a great way to use scraps. The patterned paper for the crossing panel is from the Coffee Break DSP pack and I love those subtle chevrons. I added some white cotton ribbon (SU ret) across the panel and tied it with some White Baker’s Twine. Finally, I pulled some of the sequins from the October Paper Pumpkin kit as a finishing touch. This card hits the sweet spot for this time of year for me. Quick, cute and easy to duplicate! I hope you enjoy it too!
Now I am really, REALLY excited to tell you that our Fancy Team has grown a bit. Our new members will be introducing themselves over the next few months but I get the extraordinary pleasure of sending you over to one of my favorite stampers. As an Artisan in 2011, Jennifer Picard has been one of my crafty heroes for a long time. Truth be told, I’m a little star struck! I know you will love her work as much as I do so hop right over to see what she has created.
