Ready for another Festive Friday challenge? What is the Festive Friday challenge? The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity. An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration. To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery. We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and create.
Whether you celebrate Galentine's Day or not, this Inspo List is a fun one! I used from the list Friendship sentiment, Pink, Flowers, and Pearls.
I wasn't sure what I was going to make but I have Hawaii on my mind and wanted to make a garland/lei. I thought about a little window so I cut out a circle using one of the Stylish Shapes dies on a 4" x 5-1/4" Basic White CS piece. The little flower swag in the Easter Bunny set has also been on my mind so I started stamping with it. The flowers and leaves were colored in using Pale Papaya, Parakeet Party, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sorbet, and Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blends. The card base is a Tahitian Tide Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes . I used a Layering Circle die to cut out the circle on the card base.
On the Basic White circle I stamped the sweet little Easter Bunny and gave her a floral headband. I swore I saw this idea in the Mini Catalog but when I looked, the garland in the sample is actually around the bunny's neck. Just another idea for another card. I fussy cut the floral swag and used Dimensionals to pop it up. Isn't she so sweet?
Check out the sentiment. Are you wondering where it came from? I am proud of this. I used a Black Stampin' Write Marker and colored in the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment from the Love For You stamp set except for the V and stamped it on Basic White CS. I then colored in the G (Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker) from the Congratulations sentiment and stamped it where the V should be and voila Galentine's! I am not usually very good at doing this and so am very happy that it turned out on the first try! I probably won't push my luck and attempt it again! I used a banner from the Stylish Shapes dies and cut it out. The 2 little hearts are Heart Pearls colored using a Sweet Sorbet Dark Stampin' Blends.
In addition I added a sentiment from the Country Bouquet set. Love this sentiment which can be used all year long! Be sure to check out how the rest of the design team used the Inspo List.
Thanks for stopping by and please join in the challenge, we would love to see your creations in the Festive Friday Gallery,
