Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Happy Birthday!

Welcome to our June Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring birthday-themed projects!

You may have arrived here from Tracy’s blog. She had a wonderful project! I chose the Hand-Penned Suite Collection for my birthday card. It has the Hand-Penned Petals (#155070) stamp set, the coordinating set of Penned Flowers Dies (#155557), the gorgeous Hand-Penned Deigner Series Paper (DSP) (#155499), and the Genial Gems (#155500) embellishments. The card base is Misty Moonlight with partial layers of Hand-Penned DSP and Mint Macaron from the Subtles DSP (#155229). The flower patterned paper was die cut at the top with a die from the Penned Flowers Die.

I cut a frame of Pale Papaya with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690) and removed the inside of it. I used a Water Painter (#151298)and Misty Moonlight ink on a piece of Basic White to place behind the frame. I stamped the flowers and colored them with Mint Macaron and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends. The sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black is from the Pansy Patch stamp set (#154999) and punched out with the Double Oval Punch (#154242), To finish the card, I added White Bakers Twine and a few Genial Gems.

Stampin Stray Ducklings New Catalog Products Blog Waddle!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! This month we are featuring projects using products from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog. Let us know what you think of these fantastic cards! 

I love the Beauty of the Earth Suite (#155843) found on pages 10 and 11. The suite includes the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (#155834), Beauty of the Earth DSP (#155841), and the Bark embossing folder (#155431).

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base, scoring at 4-1/4″ and 7″. The DSP on the front is 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and the two complimentary pieces are 1-1/2″ x 5-14″ and 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″. To make the tree on the front, I used the Beautiful Trees Dies (#155840) to cut the background piece in Mossy Meadow, the trunk in Early Espresso, and the front piece in Old Olive. Inside, the Basic White piece inside is 2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″. The sentiment is from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set(#154983), stamped in Mossy Meadow on Basic White, layered onto a scrap of Cinnamon Cider.

The front flap is adhered at the top and the bottom, which allows a gift card to be put inside!
