Fluffiest Friends Good Feelings

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 chose from the Inspo List-Bright Colors,  Twine, Large Sentiment, and Balloons.


I used 2 bright colors that will be retiring soon...Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide.  These 2 colors are part of the 2022-24 In Colors so there time will be ending with the introduction of the new In Colors.  You never know they might be back at some later date but there is no way of knowing if they will.  

  • Tahitian Tide CS card base-4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"
  • Basic White CS 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Parakeet Party 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"

The large sentiment is from the Good Feelings stamp set in the 2023-24 Annual Catalog.  It is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder.  The cute little hamster or is it a gerbil, is from the Fluffiest Friends bundle.   I have used all of the other animals and now it was her time to get inked.  She was just perfect since she is holding a balloon.  I added a few more balloons since she is a little fluffy for just one balloon to take her into the sky.   The clouds were die cut using the Give It A Whirl dies.   This die set has SO many useful shapes.  There are stars, hearts, circles, clouds, rectangles, and of course the dies to make a great interactive card.   I used a Blending Brush to lightly shade the clouds in Tahitian Tide ink.  The twine is Tahitian Tide from the 2022-24 In Color Baker's Twine Pack.


Inside another cute fluffy hamster/gerbil on a cloud.  She looks quite pleased with herself.  I used Crumb Cake, Pecan Pie, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, and Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends to color the hamster/gerbil and balloons.


Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out how the rest of the Festive Friday Design team used the Inspo List.
