Funky Four Friday

Stampin up funky four fabulous phrases

The new Funky Four stamp set (one of my top 10 favorites from the new catalog) offers endless possibilities.  It's going to be a stamping staple, much like Trendy Trees has been.


  • Stampin up funky four fabulous phrases close up These sweet little fungi can be stamped in a row as I opted to do for
    today's card.  As an alternative, they can be isolated with markers or
    paper snipped for a cute accent. 
  • Don't miss the new Antique Brads.  They make a gorgeous accent or stunning flower center.
  • A touch of texture (courtesy of the Big Shot and the new Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) dresses up the right corner.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW COLOR COACH?  I love to play with color.  The Stampin' Up! Color Coach is sheer genius for quick and beautiful color combinations and inspiration.  I pulled up the swatch for Bravo Burgundy and used the suggested combination with Baja Breeze and River Rock.  A recommended alternative is Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard and Crumb Cake . . . Hmmmm . . . I'm thinking fall 🙂
