Fab Friday 43

Posted on

Finally, it’s Friday! Woo-hoo! I had a nice day at work yesterday. My friend and co-worker Danielle and I went out for lunch for the first time ever! We had pizza and a nice chat. It rained here in the morning but cleared up around noon and it’s supposed to be beautiful through the weekend! I came home after work and busted open my rather large box from Stampin’ Up! containing some serious new Catalog goodies! I had a nice fun few crafty hours and then I remembered that it was time to select the blog candy winner! Conveniently Andrew was here so we wrote all 66 names down on pieces of paper and put them into a bowl. He insisted on doing the selection the old fashioned way! I mixed them up really good and he selected one. Drumroll please… and the winner is Karen!! Please click the contact me link above and send me your address so I can mail your new Stamp Set out to you! Thank you all for leaving the comments. It meant more than you can know to read them all. You truly are the best people in the world! In the end I am the real winner!! 🙂

Not only is today a good Friday because it was blog candy day, but it’s also a Fab Friday week! This week we have a fun sketch for you…

Fab Fri 43 6-06-2014

I did manage to mount some of the stamps and unwrap some of the accessories so that’s what I used on my card. The base of the card is Bermuda Bay Card Stock and my background is a piece of Baked Brown Sugar that I embossed with the Tiny Triangles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The strip across the middle is Crisp Cantaloupe and both the background and the strip are adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive. The “HEY” is cut out using the new Little Letters Thinlits from Bermuda Bay and each letter is propped onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Under that, I stamped the other part of my greeting from the And Many More Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay. The three arrows on the right hand side are punched out from Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush with the new What’s Up Punch. To finish off the card, I used a strip of Washi Tape from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack and placed it above my greeting. I love all the geometric shapes on the card and yes, I had a ton of fun with some of my new goodies! I hope you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see the rest of the designers projects and upload yours to the gallery! Have a Fantastic Friday peeps! 🙂

    Nice card. Like that “what’s up” punch!!! The old fashioned way of picking a name is so much fun. 66 posts was great. Enjoy your weekend. 🙂

    • Thank you Nancy! Yes, the What’s Up punch is fun! It really was fun to pick the name that way! More work but worth it! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

  2. Well a VERY happy Friday to you Justin! Thank you so much for having Andrew draw my name for the stamp set! Woo-hoo! I just had to tell you how much Iove this card! And I am putting the triangle embossing folder and the Whats Up punch on my list to order next! Love that! Have a fabulous Friday!

    • Yes Karen, a very happy Friday indeed! You are welcome and thank you for taking time everyday to stop by and visit. So glad you enjoyed the card and you have a fabulous Friday too! 🙂

    You must have had a blast opening up your SU box! The triangles embossing folder looks like it will go great with the Geometrical stamp set. (Reminds me of the wafers of the sugar cookies my kids liked!!) Enjoy the sun this weekend, and Manhattan!

    • Indeed I did Beth! It was like Christmas!! That’s the reason I got the Tiny Triangles Folder, I do love the Geometrical Set! It sure does look like the wafer in a sugar cookie… hmm… you just gave me an idea! You have a great weekend too! 🙂

  4. Love the card! Way to go by incorporating so much new stuff!! HAPPY FRIDAY!

  5. Very cute! Love those arrows!

  6. Hi Justin –

    I’ve spent hours and hours looking through the new catalog and adding to my wish list. As much time as I’ve spent doing that I never noticed the “what’s up” punch. I love punches. As fun as the Big Shot is, I still prefer to use punches. I especially love them when they are designed to coordinate with stamp sets and/or embossing folders. I agree with Lisa that it’s great to see so many of the new products in “action”. LOL

    Congratulations to Karen. It’s always nice to receive a surprise, especially when it’s a Stampin’ Up product. Hope you have fun with the new stamp set and share with us a card you make with it.

    Have fun in Manhattan this weekend Justin. It’s going to be hard to tear yourself away from all your new goodies but Manhattan has a way of calling people to come back for sure. Have a Fantastic Friday!

    • I too have spent hours looking through the catalog Grace and I saw things that I missed as soon as I placed my order! I too like a punch and coordinating stamp set, it quick and easy! I’m so happy that I could get so many things on the card and it still work!
      Yes, I think it would be great if Karen would share a card that she creates with the new stamp set! Great idea!
      I am almost sure that I will be headed into Manhattan, probably on Sunday. I need some city, I miss it! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

  7. Justin, Great card! I love the What’s Up punch. It in my order…. waiting patiently. Didn’t order that embossing folder but I will now.

  8. Very nice card Justin. Congrats Karen. And yes that folder is on my list…. I have 2 grandsons that just love ice cream cone and this folder reminds me of one. Have fun in Manhattan tomorrow. Looking forward to some pictures too.

    • Thank you Louise! Yes! It does also look like an ice cream cone!! I will have a great time in the city like always! There will be pictures!! 🙂

  9. This is such a totally cool card! Wow the colors and new products. The What’s Up punch is on it’s way to me. I like that you get two images from it. I am kicking myself for not putting Little Letter Thinlits on my order. Awwwwwwww. They look so great on your card, my next order will include them for sure. A shout out to Karen for winning the blog candy……lucky girl. Enjoy the city this weekend Justin.

    • Thank you Lisa! I do love the 2013-2015 In-Colors, great and very summery! You will love that punch! The letters are cool, I have wanted them for a while! I hope that you enjoy your weekend too! 🙂

  10. Justin,
    Another lovely graphic card! I NEED that arrow punch! The arrow’s make the card for me.
    Going out to lunch, for the first time with a co worker sounds nice.
    So jealous of your new products!! Can’t wait to see your new goodies! This catalog, in my humble opinion, is one of the best! So many great new products, the variety is fantastic! I love the layouts, the organization, everything about it!
    We are having very lovely weather here today, warm but with a slight breeze. Nice to sit outside and drink my ice coffee!
    Hope your Friday is a good one and looking forward to pics from Manhattan!

    • Hi Donna!
      Thank you! Yes, I do like the graphic look, I miss the Kaleidoscope Paper already! We had a great lunch but we never have time to go out usually. First time in over two years! We will do it again!
      I got a lot of new goodies, too many! I agree with you that the catalog is one of the best! I love to cover too!
      It’s nice and sunny here today and 76 degrees, absolutely perfect!!
      I snuck out of work early so I am having a great Friday and hope you enjoy the rest of your evening! 🙂

  11. Congrats to Karen!!!!!

    I bet you thought it was Christmas…. I LOVE getting my new SU toys. That triangle embossing folder is great, remind me of a waffle cone, Yes, I’m wat past dinner time, LOL

    Great card as usual. take care

  12. Gosh darn it! Justin, you keep making me want more STUFF!

  13. So many lovely new things on this card Justin – my wish list just grew longer!!

  14. Love this card! How did you get your letters so clean? That is, without the ejection holes showing up embossed on the surface?
