Stampin Friends Favorites Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends February Blog Hop! This month's theme is Favorites.  If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from the blog of Heidi Collins.  Be sure to read through my blog post, comment below and continue along to the blog of Maureen Rauchfuss. If you happen to get lost along the way, you can find a list of the Blog Hoppers at the end of each blog.  
Here are the projects I created for this month's hop featuring three of my favorite stamp sets, Crafting Forever, It Starts with Art  and Under My Umbrella. All products used are from Stampin' Up!

Umbrella Card

I used the Under My Umbrella stamp set for all the images, stamped each in Memento Black Ink and colored in using Stampin' Blends. Card base is Seaside Spray, layered panel is Mint Macaron and Whisper White.  The Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder is sponged with Crumb Cake. Mint Macaron ribbon and a few basic pearls to finish.

Create Banner Project:
I made this banner at a retreat this past weekend.  It is using two of my favorite stamp sets, Crafting Forever and It Starts with Art.  The Follow Your Art DSP is used as the layering pieces and many accessories to make this showcase piece to hang in my Stampin' Studio.
