Fancy Friday

Hi stampers!  It's Fancy Friday Time!  We are a group of friends and both current and former Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team members who come together once a month to knock your socks off ;-)

This month's theme is all about the bundles!  Our Annual Catalog is just filled to the brim with cute bundles that coordinate seamlessly to make the cutest projects!  You can get a stamp set and either a punch or framelits for 10% off when you buy them in the bundle!  Who doesn't love cute and a discount????

I chose Animal Outing because I haven't used it enough and it's amazingly cute!

I actually kept my projects rather simple but that's because I wanted the focus to be on the awesome embossed backgrounds!  I used the framelits and our Embossing Mats to add some interest and texture.

You can check out the process here in this video!

I posted a video recently using the mats in shapes that were cut out but I wanted to make one for the backgrounds as well, where nothing is actually cut out.

For this card, I colored my giraffes using the Mango Melody Blends markers.  I think it makes the prefect giraffe color!  A few branches from the die set in Call Me Clover are the perfect finishing touch.

For my rhino card, I also colored him and his little friend with my Blends.  I think that background is so cool!  Isn't it just a fun texture?  You can see in the video how I lined them up twice.

Do you have this bundle and/or the embossing mats yet?  If not, you totally should!  Now it's time to hop on over and see my amazingly talented friend Marisa!  You're going to love what she did with her bundle!  
Happy stamping!
