Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop - Sentimental Rose

Happy Tuesday everyone!  The month is flying by and it's time for another hop with the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities group!

This month's Paper Pumpkin is showcasing Stampin' Up's Disinktive style of stamps.  These stamps offer realistic images when stamped and are so beautiful!  This month's kit is called Sentimental Rose and I couldn't wait to craft with it when my kit arrived.

For my project this month, I wanted to use everything from the kit but create an alternate project.  I wanted to challenge myself to use exactly what the kit comes with and to showcase how these kits don't need too many extra supplies to create different and beautiful projects!


The only extras I added to this card was the Calypso Coral ribbon and Calypso Coral ink  for the sentiment and Mint Macaron for the leaves!  I used the So Saffron printed base and stamped using the Gray Granite Stampin' Spot that came with the box.  I layered the leaves stamped in Mint Macaron and used some of the punched out pieces layered together to create a different sentiment piece.

Isn't that Mint Macaron embellishment cute?! I wish we could order full packages of those but they came exclusively in the box as well!  To finish off my project I used the Calypso Coral 3/8" Satin Ribbon.

May's kit looks to be even better when Shelli Gardner, founder of Stampin' Up, creates her own uniquely designed box!  Check out this sneak peek video below and subscribe to the kit by May 10th by clicking HERE!

Stampin' Friends Blog Hop April 2019 - Mother's Day

Hello Thursday everyone! The weekend is almost here and it's time for another month with the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop group!


Mother's Day is right around the corner and this month's theme is all about celebrating our moms!  For my project this month, I highlighted the Abstract Impressions stamp set, which I am happy to announce will be carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!




For my 3D project, I started off with the Kraft Pillow Boxes.  I cut one end off and used the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and Gray Granite cardstock to create a "belly band" around the box.  Next I layered using the Pearlized Doilies and Daffodil Delight with the Swirly Scribbles dies.  For the sentiment I used Gray Granite ink and Daffodil Delight.


For my card, I started with Very Vanilla cardstock base and layered using Gray Granite cardstock.  There are a quite a bit of ink colors on the card so I wanted to keep it simple and not add too many layers.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop April 2019 - Favorite Technique

Happy Thursday crafters!  The week is almost over and it's time for another month with the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Group!



Learning new techniques is always something I enjoy doing.  I like trying new things out and seeing how they work and always wanting to improve my skills, so this month's theme of showcasing our favorite technique was something I was looking forward to!  For this month, I showcased the dry embossing technique using the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!



This technique is such a fun but very easy thing to create for any level of crafter.  I started off with a Fresh Fig cardstock base.  Taking Powder Pink ink I tapped it to the inside of the top half of the embossing folder.  Once I had the right amount of ink on there I wanted, I used Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot machine.

It's that simple!  The ink transfers onto the paper and the embossed image transfers as well.  I used the Stitched Shapes framelits with Bermuda Bay cardstock to cut out the circle and the Well Said bundle and Fresh Fig cardstock and ink to create the sentiment.
