June 2019 Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Hello there my stampin' friends,

Welcome to the very first blog hop of the new annual catalogue!  I am so very excited to show you the new products I decided to showcase.

I chose to showcase the very first thing I purchased from the new catalogue....Free as a Bird Bundle.  I know there have already been some amazing projects using these two great products, but I am hoping to give you just one more reason to NEED this bundle in your collection!

Here is my card.

I love that this bundle can be used with any of your favourite colour combination and one that I love, Is  Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake!  

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, then a layer of Balmy Blue dry embossed using the Basket Weave and then a layer of Vellum Cardstock. 

I used the Stitcehd Nested Labels Dies to layer 2 different sizes - they are stitched!! and these beauties stitch on both the positive and negative space.  I stamped the images on a scrap of Whisper white using Momento ink which works well with the Stampin' Blends.  

The colours of Stampin' Blends I used was Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Cumb Cake and Daffodil Delight.

Then I fussy cut the images to be able to pop them up onto the Nested Dies.  Before I adhered any of the images, I stamped the greeting using Momento as well as I stamped the bird a second time so that I didn't have to fussy cut his legs and feet!  lol

I added all of the images with dimensionals and adhered the Whisper White Nested Label directly onto the Crumb Cake Label. I wrapped some Braided Linen Trim around the center and poped the whole centerpiece up onto dimesionals.  Finally, I added a bow.

I hope you liked my card.  As I look at it now, I think I could have added some colour to the ground under the blue bird's feet.  I will add it after I type this post. lol

Be sure to hop all around and see what my Blogging Friends have created.

Happy Stampin'

Happy Birthday

Hi there stampin' friends,
I have a cute birthday card for you today as I play along with CAS(E) this Sektch!

I always love a good sketch to get the creative brain working!  I chose to turn this one up-side-down and use some of my favourites.

I wanted to use the some of my favourite DSP, Painted Seasons, that I have been saving (hording really) from Sale a Bration.  I just love this pattern of succulent plants - so trendy right now.  

I also used the Stitched Rectangles to create some detail in framing the layers and to highlight the greeting.  The greeting was created using the Well Said bundle which will be carrying over to the new catalgue, but won't be available in the bundle price saving you 10%. 

I chose the colours by using the colours in the DSP..  I finished things off with a little twine bow in Pool Party.

Thanks for stoppinig by. Be sure to hop on over to CAS(E) this Sketch!  to see what has been created with this sketch in mind.

Happy Stampin'
