Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...Crafty Favorites
April 08, 2020
Welcome to the debut of a brand new blog hop, Around the World on Wednesday, #aWOWbloghop! We have twenty four (24) participating in this first hop representing 13 different time zones (Midnight in Hawaii through 10PM for New Zealand) in all of Stampin' Up's markets! Thank you so much for joining us as we hop Around the World on Wednesday!
The theme for this first hop is Crafty Favorites. I had to think a lot about what this meant to me. I know for some it might be a favorite tool, stamp set, technique. After much thought I think what my Crafty Favorite has to be is color coordination. I love that I have inks, markers, Stampin' Blends, cardstock, DSP (designer series paper), and accessories in colors that coordinate. Currently one of my favorite colors is Petal Pink, partly because there are lots of products in Petal Pink which makes it easy to create with.
Here I colored the magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using Petal Pink Stampin' Blends in both light and dark. I also used the Petal Pink and White stripe from the Magnolia Lane DSP and the gorgeous Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. It is wonderful not having to guess if the pinks will coordinate.
This is a fun fold that twists as you open it to reveal the inside panel.
The inside panel has a strip of the Petal Pink and white DSP and a fussy cut flower from the Magnolia Lane DSP.I love how everything goes together creating a harmonious look. I vividly remember when I would go to the craft store and buy ribbon or cardstock thinking it would match the ink I had at home, only to get home and realize they weren't the same shade of red. It was always so frustrating. This is why my Crafty Favorite is color/product coordination.
Now it is time for you to check out what talented Teri West's Crafty Favorite is!
Thank you for joining us on our inaugural hop! Be sure to join us in May on the 2nd Wednesday of the month!
What a fun fold! The magnolia works really well with it.
