Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, our blog hop theme made projects to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week, which is February 14-20! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
The Spring Blessings Stamp Set caught my eye the first time I turned the pages of the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. It is so unique, and I decided to create with it for the first time, today.
I began with a slim line card base, thinking it would best accommodate what I envisioned. I cut soft Sea Foam Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 7″, folded at 3 1/2″, and layered it with Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, 8 1/4″ X 3 1/4″. This designer paper is a favorite, FREE, Sale-a-bration item. Check out the ten, additional Sale-a-bration FREE gifts for February, listed below.
Prior to gluing the layer to the card base, I used a Queen Bee Die to cut the half-circle wreath from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. The wreath was used to measure the distance between the girls, so they could hold it with their hands. Then, I stamped the girls, from the Spring Blessings Stamp Set, in Early Espresso Ink on the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper.
I colored their skin with an Ivory Stampin’ Blend, and their hair with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. Their dresses were stamped in stars (Old Olive Ink) and flowers (Mango Melody Ink). I also stamped some grass in Old Olive Ink, and flowers in her hair with a Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker.
After gluing the wreath in place, I decorated it with five, Loose Flower Flourishes, an embellishment in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.
The sentiment, “Hoping this spring brings you many blessings,” is one of five sentiments in the Spring Blessings Stamp Set. I stamped it in Early Espresso Ink on Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, used a Queen Bee Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.
My card is ready to send for Random Acts of Kindness Week, along with more of my handmade cards.
Lily is joining me to say, thanks for stopping by!
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 8th, when our theme will be Party Time, showcasing cards/projects that celebrate our family and friends.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
