Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Welcome to our March Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring critters of all kinds!

You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. My card features the Ladybug Builder Punch(#157698) to create a bumblebee. This punch is a part of the Hello Ladybug Bundle(#157699).

The card base is Basic Black (11″ x 5-1/2″) with 2 pieces of the Hand-Penned DSP on it. The Hammered Metal (3D) Embossing Folder (#150646) gave the Daffodil Delight card stock a texture to resemble a honeycomb. The bumblebee was created with a Basic Black body and a layer of Daffodil Delight which was cut into stripes and vellum wings! The sentiment is from Pansy Patch.

Here is a picture of the card expanded showing the fun-fold and another little bumblebee!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Celebrating Birthdays!

Welcome to our 1st Paper Crafting Blog Hop of 2022 with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects for birthdays!

You may have arrived here from Sandra’s blog. She had a great project! My card features the Friendly Hello Bundle – yes BUNDLE – from the 2022 Sale-A-Bration brochure – yes Sale-A-Bration – meaning it’s free with a $100 order!! The bundle includes the Friendly Hello photopolymer stamp set and the Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The card base is Basic White with a layer of the DSP on it. Then a smaller piece of Vellum Card Stock (#101856), stamped with images in Jet Black Stazon Ink (#101406) was added. This is the ink you want to use on porous surfaces, like vellum. Then I stamped the bird on a branch image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Basic White and colored it lightly with alcohol markers. The sentiment from this wonderful SAB set is stamped in Pool Party. All images were adhered carefully with the adhesive hidden behind the solid pieces of the card. Three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for a little bling!

We are 2 weeks into Sale-A-Bration, time to look through the annual and mini catalogs and order what you must have and earn free products!
