Stampin' Up! In the Moment Fun Fold ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop


Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

This month we are doing a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  One of the great things about this type of challenge is that there's so many options!  I chose to do the middle column: Fun Fold, Sparkle, Purple. 

The purple made me think about Stampin' Up!'s 2023 January - April Mini Catalog since the cover is purple!  So, I stamped the book on a scrap of Subtle Designer Series Paper, then fussy cut around it.  To add a little bit of sparkle, I also carefully added Wink of Stella to the cut out book!  

When stamping with this particular stamp from In the Moment stamps, I like to emphasize the 'relaxing' bits. To do this I colored the lady's face, hair and fingers, the puppy, book and cup while keeping the blankets and clothes a very subtle gray.
