Stampin' Up! You're a Peach Birthday Card & Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our monthly Stamping Symphony Blog Hop!  This month our theme is 'Summer with Designer Series Paper.'  We hope you're inspired by our projects!  We love hearing from you so don't forget to leave comments!  At the end of this post you'll find links to the rest of the blogs in the hop!



Creating whimsical visuals with the Basic Borders Dies is super easy and I'll show you how in my video (to be posted later this evening).  

I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the You're a Peach DSP for the summery patterns and colours!  This paper makes me so happy!!






Speaking of happy, I did an hombre look for the greeting and boy was it easy!  I used the Biggest Wish stamp set and cut the greeting using one of the Smooth Sailing dies.  Be sure to check back to see my video tutorial later this evening on how I achieved the look.






Have you seen the Basic Border dies in the Annual Catalogue? Love the scallops and stitching and how unique my card looks!  A few Genial Gems for the right amount of sparkle and we're almost done!

By using vellum on the leaves rather than cardstock keeps the card looking light and bright!  I noticed the glue dot under the leaf while writing this post.  Oops!  





Another hombre greeting, vellum leaf and the cut-away piece of DSP from the front of the card.  A lovely finishing touch for this special birthday card!






How many greeting combinations can you think of for this stamp set?

Stampin' Up! Hand-Penned Suite Congratulations Card

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!  I've been absent for a bit due to my move and have missed stamping, but I'm settling in and have been playing with the Hand-Penned Suite Collection! It's SO pretty!



Spring has sprung with this sweet & simple card.  I love love love the Hand-Penned DSP - a major wow for any card!




HAND-PENNED SUITE COLLECTION #155503



These flowers make me happy!  The watercolour look is amazing even when stamped off!  I used Highland Heather ink....that just happens to coordinate with the paper!  Notice not all the cutout pieces came out - I decided to leave whatever little bits stayed in.




STITCHED GREENERY DIE #155451

I've been waiting for a background die and it's finally here, and it's crazy fabulous!  






It's a little hard to see the design created by the Stitched Greenery die in this pic.  I didn't want the strip to be too large and take away from the gorgeous DSP.

Stampin' Up! Flowers of Friendship Bundle & a Blog Hop!

Hey crafty friends, thanks for popping in today!  It's the 15th, thus time for our monthly Stamping Symphony blog hop!  

I'm exciting to see what everyone has created!  Here's my card....



My bright and bold card is a snap to make!  I love the clean look!  And you'll love the Flowers of Friendship Bundle from Stampin' Up! and how many colour combos you can use to create gorgeous cards!

You know me - I had to throw in a bit of wonky die-cutting for my first play with the Basic Border Dies.  I decided off-centre the die creating a simple visual interest.  This will make more sense when I post my Video Tutorial from my May 18 Facebook Live. 

I used to shy away from the darker Stampin' Blend colours, but no more!  You simply must give our blends a try!  





FLOWERS OF FRIENDSHIP BUNDLE #155558

You'll love the versatility of this bundle, and the price-point! 






For those wanting Black Embossing Powder - good news - it's back, and definite must-have for your craft room!  After heat embossing, I cut the greeting using one of my Tasteful Labels dies.





What do you do with the leftover flower and die cut piece?  Add them to the inside of the card!
