In-Colors Sneak Peek for Fab Friday 87

Wow, is it a gorgeous day here in Minnesota!  I wanted to blog this card this morning but we had plans to hike a new spot.  We just got back from Quarry Park and Nature Preserve.  I'm thinking we will be back often.  There are quarries everywhere throughout the park - some for diving and fishing and some for swimming (cliff jumping!) :)  Eh.. I'm a mom now - my days of jumping off rocks is over!

Anyway, here's the card I made yesterday for my niece before I remembered she doesn't like pink or purple.  Back to the drawing board I guess!

I used the fun sketch over at Fab Friday for inspiration. Click the image below to go to the Fab Friday site and see the design team's creations.

I'm also not a huge pink fan and one of my customers messaged me on Monday letting me know she was anxious to see what I did with the new in-colors because she isn't sure she likes them.  
I combined Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum (I love, btw!) and Rich Razzleberry.  I also used the pretty rushed ribbon and Copper washi tape.

Using my Aqua Painter, I colored all three inks on some Watercolor Paper.  A little flick of the brush to add some Rich Razzleberry splatter at the end.

And do you see that gorgeous DSP that the '15' is cut out of??  That is the new Affectionately Yours DSP that has 2 pieces with Copper Embossed designs.  So pretty!

When I saw the preorder I knew I wanted this new ribbon.  It ties beautifully - it just doesn't look awesome with the tombow glue marks :(

So what do you think?  Do you like the new in-colors?

I hope to be sharing some more ideas soon!


If you place and order with me by May 31st of $20 or more, I will mail you a brand new catalog from Stampin' Up!  Please use hostess code: UPAUWSXK


  1. Well you certainly rocked that challenge from your customer! I LOVE it! Now you've inspired me to open those pack of cardstock and ink and try to create something awesome! :)

  2. That's an awesome design! Love the way that your background turned out and I love those new in colors! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday, hope to see you again soon!

  3. Oh wow - those colors are FABULOUS together! Can't wait to try it, lol. Love your blend of textures and patterns on this - gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  4. I love this card! I'm not much of pink fan either but with the 2 purples this is gorgeous! I really like how you turned the sketch into a long skinny card as well! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  5. So pretty although pink is not my color!

    Alene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue is your best friend for gluing ribbon. It does not show through and grips like iron on even the slipperiest ribbons!

  6. You are a super-talent, Holly! I love these letters cropped from this Affectionately Yours Specialty paper - just gorgeou! Thanks for playing along with this FabFriday sketch!
