Bella and Friends is soon to be retired. So I wanted to officially use it one more time. It will stay in my retired stamp stash though. All the doggie themed stamps do:)

Use the word bubble ovals to add what you are thankful for.

Our heart epoxy droplets (item number 148583) are perfectly sized to fit the heart tag on Bella’s collar. The droplets also feature a medium and large size too. All 3 sizes are included in the package.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Guy Cards

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Happy Father’s Day/thinking of you/guy designs. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandy Ward’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

You will never guess what is on the opposite side of this designer series paper… it’s flowers! Look at the back side of your favorite floral pattern papers. Often, there will be a pattern that is suitable for all occasion designs. This particular pattern is part of the Garden Impressions paper pack.

Use the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the pattern paper for greater visual appeal. Add Twinkle sequin stars to the center of the night of navy stamped stars. Linen thread in the power of 3 is wrapped around a 1 inch banner created with the triple banner punch.

I usually line the inside of the card with whisper white but the bright color did not work the earthy color scheme. Instead, I used the leftover over 1×3 inch dsp piece to decorate the top along with the stamped stars along the side to bring a little of the outside to the inside. Use our paper snips to create a custom banner.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Poppin’ Birthday

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the March Paper Pumpkin kit, Sentimental Rose, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog. She had a great project!

What to do with the stamps after the original kits contents are depleted? This month, I carefully opened the box and slipped only the stamp set out. I did not want my designing mojo to be influenced by the suggested designs included with the kit.

I started plucking pieces from my sniblets pile, added the Layered Leaves embossing folder to the crumb cake card base, daubed on Wink of Stella and crumpled up the fussy cut rose because it was just too flat looking (and that is just the kind of day I am having, a good busy but I am not going to get it all done before the clock strikes midnight!).

Uncrumple the rose and voila!, came up with this idea…

Thank you for joining us as we share the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to Lisa Kmiec’s blog to see what she designed.
