Stampin Friends August Blog Hop- Hope!

SFblog

Hello there! Thank you so much for joining our blog hop this month! Our blog hop theme is “HOPE”, I’m excited to see everyone’s cards and projects, it’s a very talented group. Please welcome our guest hoppers this month, they are:  Maureen Rauchfuss, Angela Lorenz , and Kim Lamos. Welcome ladies, looking forward to seeing your creations, thank you for joining us!

For this month’s theme I decided to break out a set of new dies from the Annual Catalog called Sunshine Wishes. This set is so adorable, with great fonts too! I have been on a CAS kick (clean and simple) lately… mostly because of time constraints. I can’t wait to have some uninterrupted time to play in my craft room this weekend.

 

Since I was using the word “hope” die cut from Sunshine wishes, I wanted to eliminate that word from the stamp set I decided to use (Garden in Bloom, carried over from last year).


Love post-it notes for masking off- just trimmed down to fit over the word I did NOT want inked up…


And presto, now the front of the card reads “Hope you’re feeling special today”.

The little gift bag coordinates nicely with this card, and I have some special treats to put inside for a special someone. This card and gift bag would be appropriate for cheering up a friend, or for a special occasion or birthday. The possibilities are endless!

Remember that this group of blog hoppers gives away awesome prizes each month.

Creative Circle Blog Hop- Weddings!


Hello there crafty friends! Welcome to our August blog hop with the creative circle design team,  the theme for this month is weddings! I have a wedding card and a cute box (perfect for a shower or wedding favor).

First up is the full view of my card… I have just loved using the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, and it was a perfect backdrop for my little wedding dress and tuxedo.

First I made a whisper white Bloomin’ Heart and then used the second largest of the new layering oval framelits to create the base of the wedding dress. Then I hand cut away the sides to turn it into the dress!

I decided to just free cut some scrap basic black card stock (with the trimmer) and created a tuxedo that was the right proportion to match the dress. (I kept the spare pieces from cutting the “v” into the basic black, and turned them sideways to create the collar. I hand cut the little bow-tie also. Easy peasy with our wonderful paper snips!

 

The stamp set “Floral Phrases” is absolutely perfect for wedding cards- and I stamped this in Night of Navy ink, cut out nesting ovals with the smallest layering oval framelits.

Decorating the inside is a must when the card base is such a dark color…

 

This cute little favor was inspired by a swap I received from Carol Hickman, would this be perfect filled with candy, nuts, or small trinkets?  This features our new clear mini treat boxes.

All the supplies I used to make the card and favor box are listed below. Just click and it will take you to my online store.

 

Don’t forget that you can now use your Bonus Day Coupons you earned in July (there is a special spot to type in your code you received in an email).

We Create Blog Hop- August 2016!

WCBH2016

 

Happy August Everyone! Can you believe how quickly July flew by? Me neither! Here’s to our last month of “summer”… hope you find some time for crafting fun!

 


First up is my “simple” card… I’m not sure if you can tell, but this card base uses a full piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock, folded in 1/2 so the finished card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. I  needed to make a special congratulations card for a work colleague who is leaving our department for a new job at the state, and we’re having a little luncheon for her today. I needed a card for 20 people to be able to sign their well wishes, so I knew our typical card size wouldn’t be big enough. I knew this card was a little too plain, so I decided to jazz it up a little bit.


Stepped up a notch but adding sweet sugarplum ruched ribbon, wink of Stella clear glitter pen, and stamped small flowers from the Love and Affection stamp set in coordinating colors from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.


Close up… so you can see the Wink of Stella Glitter pen, and the tiny mini pearls I used.

 

What do you think? I love to hear from all of you- what else would you add to this card?

 

Now it’s time to go check out the rest of the creative team… click the “next” button below to go see what the amazing Kimberley has ready for us…. Don’t forget to leave us a comment- we love to know what you think about our creations.
