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 look forward to seeing what you create.
I used Black & White, Easel Card and Gingham from the Inspo List.
The cute little raccoon is from the Zoo Crew DSP that will be debuting in the 2023-24 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I added the balloons using the Zany Zoo dies. The raccoon is actually holding balloons but the colors did not match my color scheme so I added the die cut ones on top of them. I added some color to the raccoon with Polished Pink (I am going to miss this color) and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. The raccoon is on circles from the Layering Circles dies. The Layering Circles dies will be retiring soon too!
I created the black and white striped background by layering 3/4" Basic Black strips over Basic White CS. I added both the Black & White Gingham ribbon and the Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon to the card. The Polished Pink ribbon is retiring and currently available for $2.80! What a deal! I used the Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blend to color the Heart Pearls.
I still had to use one more item on my card from the Inspo List for the challenge. The only one I could find a way to use was easel card.
The black and white strip was leftover from the stripes I created. The sentiment is from the Zany Zoo stamp stamp set and acts as the stopper for the easel.
The new catalog will be debuting on May 2nd and you can find the adorable Zoo Crew Suite on page 46 & 47. It is a super fun collection.
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your projects in the Festive Friday Gallery!
