It is Friday and time for the Festive Friday Challenge! The festivity we are being inspired by is the First Day of Summer #FF0060.
To play along with the challenge all you have to do is pick 3 of the items on the Inspo List and use it on your project. Once your project is complete head on over the Festive Friday Blog and enter it in the gallery. You have until Monday, June 8 at 8pm CST to enter. I hope to see your entry in the gallery!
I was inspired by watercolor, patterns, and bright colors from the Inspo List. This card is a mix of sneak peek items (Many Medallion dies and one of the new In Colors, Magenta Madness) and items carrying over from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog Timeless Tropical stamp set and In the Tropics dies (purchase them as a bundle before June 3 and you will save 10%, Timeless Tropical bundle ).
I love the Many Medallions dies! I can think of so many different ways to use these dies. Today I simply layered it over my favorite new In Color (at least for today), Magenta Madness. There have been overlays before in different kits. I was always reluctant to use them since they were just a few of them but now I can make as many as I want which gives me permission to play. I think they would make fun stencils to use with embossing paste, brayers, and sponging techniques. When I am in the right frame of mind, it would also be fun to inlay them in different colors. That's just a few ideas I have roaming around in my brain. Hope to have a stretch of time to play.
I tried something new on the "aloha". I wanted it to be raised up but wasn't sure how to do it since it is pretty skinny and I didn't think trimming dimensionals would be very satisfactory. While I was thinking about what to do I remembered finding some white fun foam while cleaning out my room and yes, I decided to try and cut the fun foam with the aloha die. It cuts like a dream, no problems at all. I glued the Sparkle Glimmer paper aloha to the fun foam and problem solved! This is an easy solution and so much easier than cutting tiny pieces of dimensional.
Did you know that every member of the Festive Friday Design team creates a tutorial for their project? Some are videos, some are on the blog post, and some are PDFs. I created a PDF for you! You can access it HERE.
