Animal Outing - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Animal Outing stamp set + Wood Textures by Stampin' Up! - Susan Wong for Fancy Friday


Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop!! We're a group of past and present Artisans who love inspire you each month. This May we're all about the True Gentleman suite. Have you noticed the classic-style textures and patterns in this stamp set and papers? So dapper! 


I took the colour combo - Tranquil Tide, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake and made a fun masculine card with rustic wood textures and the brand new Animal Outing stamp set. Check it out...

I love how the designer paper tore slightly when going through the Big Shot. It totally added some great texture don't you think? And then I had to add those dog-eared corners. It's kind of a trademark move now...

Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Night of Navy, Versamark
Papers: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Wood Textures 6x6" Paper Stack, Vellum, Silver Glimmer Paper, Tranquil Tide, Watercolor Paper

It's May already!! We're in the final days of some fabulous retiring products and eagerly anticipating the release of a bunch of soon-to-be favourites in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (out June 1st). Great news is, both the Waterfront and Southern Serendade stamp sets the Artisan team are featuring this month are carrying over into the new catalogue! So we hope you lap up these ideas and use them in your own crafting world! Speaking of worlds....

HOT TIPS:
- Stamp off on scrap paper first and then straight on the Wood Textures designer paper for a subtle tree-line.
- Mask part of a sentiment with washi tape before inking up your stamp, peel off the washi then stamp on your cardstock. I mixed these two sentiments to make a new one:
- For the globe: I did a light Pool Party wash for the sea first and let dry. The land was done freehand with Call Me Clover and an aqua painter, copied from a globe on the internet. Finally I splattered on some Pool Party marker. 

See all those little fussy cut houses in a row? Well can I just say, I'm so thankful for all the friends I've made from around the world on my Artisan journey. If you're a current demonstrator reading this, did you know that applications are open right now for the 2019 team? I encourage you to apply!! You have until end of May!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waterfront
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Pool Party, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate
Papers: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, Watercolor Paper, Grapefruit Grove
Tools/Accessories: Linen Thread, Silver Metallic Thread, Metallics Sequin Assortment, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Big Shot
