Paper Crafting Blog Hop!

Welcome to our June Paper Crafting Blog Hop with 15 Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe! Our theme this month is Birthdays! You may have arrived from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Beautiful Friendship stamp set (#149252) and Butterfly Wishes (#149346) for the sentiment

The card base is Soft Seafoam with a layer of Flirty Flamingo I stamped the large flower in Mango Melody and used a Sponge Dauber to add Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the smaller flower in Flirty Flamingo and sponged Poppy Parade in the center. The leaves are Garden Green and Soft Seafoam. The sentiment is stamped in Garden Green.

Here are a couple more birthday cards I have made in June.

This card uses the Jar of Flowers and coordinating punch.

This card uses Mountain Air and the Majestic Mountain Dies.

Stampin Stray Ducklings' June Blog Waddle

Welcome to the June Stampin Stray Ducklings’ Blog Waddle! This month we are featuring cards created with exciting new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. You may have arrived here from Nancy Legate’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog. Let us know what you think of our projects! 

I created my card using the World Map Dies (#152712) from the Beautiful World Bundle (#154091). The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Misty Moonlight, one of the new In-Colors for 2020-2022. Another layer of Basic Black and a piece of World of Good Speciality Designer Series Paper (#152491). The globe is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional and backed with Misty Moonlight. The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the A Wish for Everything (#149320) cling stamp set. It is stamped in Basic Black on a piece of Misty Moonlight layered on a circle of Basic Black. Both circles are cut with dies, one from the Word Map Dies and the other from Layering Circles Dies (#151770). I completed my card with 3 Gold Metallic Pearls (#146282). This is going to be hubby’s birthday card in a couple of weeks!
