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.

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!

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!

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).

I created my card using the Ornate Style cling stamp set (#152572). The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Whisper White embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (#152725). I love the detail with the 3D Embossing Folder!

These beautiful products are a part of the Ornate Garden Suite Collection (#154153), an early release from the upcoming new Annual Catalog. All of the products available now are shown here! There are two bundles available separately or in the suite, at savings of 10%.

The next layer is Blueberry Bushel and is diecut with the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726).

I stamped the flowers from the Ornate Style cling stamp set (#152572) in Versamark and used White Embossing Powder (#109132) and heat set it. Then I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the leaves and flowers. The Happy Mother’s Day sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings cling-mount stamp set (#151331). I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch (#141491).
