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.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Thinking of You!

Welcome to our May Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe! Our theme this month is Thinking of You, for the men in your life. You may have arrived from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Rooted in Nature stamp set (#148217) and paper from 2 different Designer Series Papers. They are Bird Ballad (#149592) and Pressed Petals (#149500), both from the Annual Catalog

The card base is Mossy Meadow. I pieced the 4 pieces of DSP on the front of the card and then used two circle dies for the Very Vanilla sentiment and Old Olive layered pieces. I will reveal the dimensions of the paper pieces after an upcoming Mystery Stamping free online event. The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow and the leaves are stamped off in Pear Pizazz. A piece of Linen Thread (#104199) behind the circles completes the card.

The insert inside the card has a column of leaves stamped in Pear Pizazz!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Thinking of You!

Welcome to our April Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe! Our theme this month is Thinking of You, for the women in your life. You may have arrived from Tracy Held’s blog. She has a fabulous project! I chose the Inspiring Iris photopolymer stamp set (#149268) from the new Mini-Catalog

The card base is Highland Heather with a layer of Whisper White inside. The top layer is cut at 1 1/2″ from the center fold. The bottom piece is 1 1/2″ wide. Each of these sections is layered with a 1 1/4″ piece of Whisper White and then a 1″ piece of Subtles 6×6 DSP Highland Heather (#149615). The Highland Heather layer and the Whisper White layer for the irises are diecut with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (#149638).

The irises were stamped with my Stamparatus and Stampin’ Write Markers. I placed the stamps on 3 sides of the plates and inked the stamps as much as needed to achieve the color I wanted on the flowers.

Stray Ducklings August Blog Waddle

This month we are show-casing Fancy/Fun Fold cards. 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 Free As A Bird cling stamp set (#149468) and the sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet photopoymer stamp set (#143666).  The card base is a 7 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Mint Macaron with Garden Lane Designer Series Paper pieces (149488) on the side panels. It is scored at 2 1/8″ x 2 7/8″ from each end. The center panel is Mango Melody from the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (#149613).
The bird and flowers were stamped on Whisper White in Gray Granite and Mango Melody, then fussy cut.  They are colored with Colored Pencils and blended with an Aqua Painter.  The leaves were stamped in Mint Macaron and Pear Pizazz on a Whisper White circle. Then adhered to a Mint Macaron Circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies (#152323).  I used a square from those dies to cut a rectangle for the sentiment.
