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!

The panel is stamped in Night of Navy and Crumb Cake using images from Sailing Home. I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays cling stamp set (#148618) in Night of Navy.

Inside the card, I added DSP (Designer Series Paper) panels on the inside of the “gate” panels. The center panel is Very Vanilla cut at 4″ and 5 1/4″, also stamped with images from Sailing Home. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays. If you love nautical things, check out these products, some on clearance.

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).
