Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!
This month, the theme is “CASE the Catalog” so the Design Team chose a card from the new Annual Catalog and has CASEd it with their own creative twist. We really hope that you are inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with 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.
After looking at all of the fabulous samples in the new Annual Catalog, I chose one I wish I had designed. I didn’t deviate much from the original, because I love it “as is,” which you can see on page 103.
The background is the first thing that caught my eye, and I re-created it with Watercolor Shapes stamped in Pool Party Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After making a few circles with two sizes of round stamps, I used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die for cutting. This layer was glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Next, I used eight Summer Shadows Dies to cut the leaves and flowers from Shimmery White Cardstock. I believe these were watercolored in the sample, but I used Stampin’ Blends in eight colors: Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, and Petal Pink. After coloring, I glued the parts together, and attached them to the card front.
The heat embossed sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set. “Best wishes” was stamped in VersaMark on Thick Basic White Cardstock, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool. After cutting with a Potted Succulents Die, I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals.
Finally, I added gold Metallic Dots (retired), but the current, Rustic Metallic Dots would work, shown in my Product List below.
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 July 13th. Our theme will be “Create Your Own Background” when our Design Team creates a background using any technique they wish, such as stencils, stamping, watercolor, embossing but not DSP.
Until then, have fun in your craft space!
