June Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the June Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Joy Nelson's blog. Great project, Joy. Welcome one and all.

The theme for this month's blog hop is birthdays and today's card was inspired by my sister's recent shaker card for my niece's birthday. For her card she used the Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set, but I wanted to use some of the butterflies from Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set to accent the row of poppies image from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Basic White cardstock. To create the shaker piece, first stamp the poppies image on a scrap of Basic White and die cut it with the #5 circle die. It is layered on this wild circle die cut from Painted Labels dies in Rich Razzleberry. This 2" circle fits perfectly! The background is Mango Melody cs, cut 3 1/4 " by 5", and embossed using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.

My shaker bits collection: 1) several of the Artistry Blooms Sequins in Rich Razzleberry (oops, one is really high and hidden by the frame!) and adhered in the centers of the embossed flower images, 2) I glued down a couple of solid Rich Razzleberry butterfly die cuts, and 3) a couple of pinches of the Painted Poppies Sequins. These are retired now, but I still had some in my stash -- the colors match perfectly!!

To create the shaker: I adhered the Mango Melody cs to a bit wider Basic White piece, cut 3 3/4" x 5", and the whole thing goes into a CLEAR envelope! Add the couple pinches of sequins and carefully turn it over to seal the envelope. The envelope is larger than the cardstock so fold up two of the sides and tape them down. Because the shaker "packet" will be smaller than the Stitched Rectangle frame (the #6 from center die fits perfect), you can just adhere the packet straight to the card base and then adhere the Rich Razzleberry frame. VoilĂ !!

How about the CLEAR envelope for a shaker hack! Let me know if this is the first you have heard of this.

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Julia Mazur.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring In Bloom Stamp Set v2

Hello my crafty friends. I really enjoyed creating last week's card with all the die cut pieces from the Pierced Blossom Dies. This week I thought I would use up some of the left over die cut pieces and use a technique called sponging.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Soft Succulent cardstock. The flower images are die cut using the Polished Pink and Pale Papaya cardstock and the leaves are die cut using the Soft Succulent cardstock. Exactly like we did for last week's card.

To create the brick wall, emboss a piece of Basic White (1 1/4" wide and 4 1/8" long) using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Ink a Sponge Dauber in Soft Suede ink and lightly swipe across the raised bricks. Using a light touch to the paper will allow the background to remain white and make this fantastic-looking brick wall.

To create the cloud effect, hand cut a scrap of cardstock with scallop edges. Ink a Sponge Dauber in Balmy Blue ink and holding the cardstock flush to the Basic White background, lightly swipe across and off the edges. Continue to sponge while moving the hand cut template around the flowers in a similar direction from the bottom to the top of your card. It may take some practice, but you will soon be creating your own fantastic fluffy clouds.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Soft Succulent on the 1/2" strip that makes the ledge of my wall.

NOTE: The bundle pricing retires on June 30, however, both the In Bloom Stamp Set and Pierced Blooms Dies will carry over and be sold separately in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. 

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring In Bloom Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Another crazy, busy week. Make it stop! How about you? Not much time for stamping this weekend so this is a really quick and easy card using the In Bloom Stamp Set/Bundle. This card features mostly the Pierced Blooms Dies showing off the new 2021-23 In Colors. Such a pretty card.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Soft Succulent cardstock. The flower images are die cut using the Polished Pink and Pale Papaya cardstock and the leaves are die cut using the Soft Succulent cardstock.

Everything is arranged on a Basic White cardstock die cut with the largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and layered on two pieces cut from a sheet of the coordinating In Color DSP. An accent strip of Gold Foil peeks out from behind the build. 

The only stamping is the Happy Birthday sentiment in Fresh Freesia.

NOTE: The bundle pricing retires on June 30, however, both the In Bloom Stamp Set and Pierced Blooms Dies will carry over and be sold separately in the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. 

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Pretty Perennials Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Another crazy, busy week. How about you? This is a quick and easy card using my favorite retiring stamp set, Pretty Perennials (retires June 30). I also wanted to show off the new purple in color - Fresh Freesia. This is certainly a simple, pretty card.

The card base is a side fold, landscape A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Fresh Freesia cardstock. The flower images are stamped on Basic White cardstock cut 1" x 2 3/4" and layered on a strip of the coordinating DSP cut 1 1/4" x 3". You know I enjoy a fussy cut large word/sentiment!

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

May Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the May Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Julia Mazur's blog. Great project, Julia! Welcome one and all.

The theme for this month's blog hop is "thinking of you-guys." This month I have been using two of my favorite carry over stamp sets. Today's card features the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set and the 2021-23 In Color Designer Series Paper introduced in the new Annual Catalog. The card design is based on a Freshly Made Sketch from a couple of weeks back.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Basic White cardstock. There are three (3) layers in the embellishment build of the circles from the Layering Circles Dies. The first scalloped circle is the new 2021-23 In Color in Evening Evergreen cardstock, the middle layer is the 2021-23 In Color 6" X 6" DSP, and the third layer is Basic White. 

I have used Evening Evergreen throughout this project: the paper, the ink for the images and sentiment, plus the die cut "coffee" twice and layered them to give my "coffee" some depth. The coffee cups...LOVE those retro coffee cups!!

This is a fairly simple card highlighting the use of one color and second generation stamping technique, plus layering die cuts for depth.

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Shirley Merker.


This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. This week is super busy, but not too busy to whip up a card using the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set/Punch Bundle. It was certainly worth the wait.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Pacific Point cardstock. The random images of flowers and leaves are stamped on Basic White cardstock, cut 4" x 5 1/4".

The Granny Apple Green strip is 1 1/4" x 5 1/4" dry embossed using the Meadow Moments embossing folder. A skinny strip of Gold Foil is tucked along the right side to add some bling. The strawberries are inked in Poppy Parade and the stems are inked in Granny Apple Green, then punched using the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.

If you wanted to step this card up a bit more, those flowers and leaves could be stamped on scrap paper and are a match to the other two images on the Strawberry Builder Punch.

Choose your sentiment - I punched mine using the Label Me Fancy punch. I have used this technique many times recently with the ribbon tied sweetly with the linen thread. I really like it.

This was a fun card to make. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Have you seen the new catalog yet. Beautiful cover and full of great stamp sets inside. Yes! Today I thought I would share this super cute card using the Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set. Back in 2017, the companion Hey Chick Stamp Set was introduced as a Sale-A-Bration item. Turns out these wacky chickens are my favorite! The Simple Stamping Challenge is to create a card with stamps, ink and paper and one of the 3 themes for May allows the use of any stamp set in the new catalog. I love it!!
#simplestamping

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Basic White. The first mat layer is Blackberry Bliss cardstock, cut 4" x 5 1/4". The image is stamped on Basic White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5". I colored using my Stampin' Blends. So simple.

Give the #simplestamping challenge a try!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope my project has inspired your creativity. I would love to see what you have created. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.
