Fancy Friday - "Other than a card" challenge

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back with some NEW fancy friends too! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! Then a few of us had to take a break so we invited some new FANCY friends to join us and make the blog hop a little longer for your enjoyment! These are a group of past and current Artisans that have become fast friends thru the Artisan journey.
 Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month the amazing Cathy Caines picked our theme "Other than a card". I have been wanting to play with the Friends and Flowers Stamp set from the Occasions Catalog (which by the way, it NOT carrying over to the New Stampin' UP Catalog so get it while you can) and I was happy to make something other than a card with it! Well I made a card too! LOL
Such a versatile set to have! Come see what I made with it.....
This first project was made with the Shine On Specialty Designer Paper and the Gift Bag Punch Board. I so loved this DSP for the thickness and shine of the silver metallic images. You must get a pack of it before it leave us forever! I used the flower petal images in the stamp set with the Festive Flower Punch to create the large Daffodil Delight bloom. The middle of the flower is from the Botancial Builder Framelits Dies. The greeting is from Circle of Spring Stamp set. That ribbon is the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon and it is fantastic!

I took the fish and fins from the same stamp set with Bermuda Bay ink to make my cute fish. Polka Dot Cone Cellophane Bags are perfect for a little treat for a special little boy. I added the clear sequins from the Metallic Sequins Assortment for the fish bubbles. The mini 3x3 card is easy to make with another fish and the leaves and flower centers from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. Looks like coral or seaweed to me! The greetings are also from the Circle of Spring Stamp set.


For this last project with this stamp set, I created this special card for my dear friend from across the other side of the world, Susan Wong. She recently welcomed her 4th child in the world and I sent this card to her. I know that it gave her a good chuckle! ;) 

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!
