Painted Autumn Inspiration - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Birthday Blossoms + Pieces & Patterns - Susan Wong for Fancy Friday


Welcome to another Fancy Friday blog hop! We're a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisan award winners that love to bring you inspiration each month. This month our focus is the Painted Autumn suite (pp. 48-49 Holiday Catalogue). That means something like this: 'Bold, watercoloured images in beautiful Autumnal colours'. So here's my card using Birthday Blooms and Pieces and Patterns stamp sets. 

Live in the South Pacific like me? You could swap the yellow for a soft pink and you've got pretty cherry tree blossoms for spring!

Watercolor Christmas - The Crafty Carrot Co.

Watercolor Christmas Advent Calendar - Susan Wong for The Crafty Carrot. Co.

This November, we at Crafty Carrot Co. can't wait to share with you the huge amount of fun you can get out of the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit! Sure, you could make a bunch of 20 simple cards with it (which is great) but you could also get a second kit and make a whole bunch of other stuff! See below for details on how to join our November Online Program :)

Today I've paired my kit with the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Watercolor Christmas stamp set to make an advent calendar. Stick a task, reading or treat inside and display them on a string or a in a basket for your Christmas countdown this year. This project uses 12 of the card bases in the kit if you repeat the designs up to 24. If you want a 25th - that's your call!
