Welcome back to the Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog!
This week we have a color challenge:
GOJUS!! (YILM!) The bad part about this time of year is it is just before the new Christmas stuff comes out, but all the stuff you bought last year has been discontinued. This paper falls into the second category, so it's hard to find. It is Simple Stories Handmade Holiday 6 x 6 pad, which I managed to track down at one place so I linked it up below. I used dies from the Blueprints 13 collection from My Favorite Things along with the Cross-Stitch Circle Stax from My Favorite Things.
I decided to make the greeting a little more glitzy by completing covering "Believing" which was stamped in Garden Green ink with a Red Spica pen. It has a restrained shimmer that is completely in keeping with the antique look of the card. A little bit of glitter cardstock with the star from Blueprints 13 makes a nice little pop of glitz.
I used this cute die from the Frantic Stamper called Tied Strings to create a little accent without actually having to add actual twine.
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Ribbon Resource, Gina K, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you. Stampin' Up! product links lead to their webstore, so please be sure to indicate your preference in demonstrator if it doesn't come up automatically!
