Stampin Friends Sympathy/Get Well Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Sympathy/Get Well Blog Hop!  If you are following along on the hop, you have arrived from Christine's blog and Thank You for stopping by and continue through the hop! We have a prize giveaway too!! Be sure to keep reading to get the scoops on our giveaway. 

Make sure to click the Next button at the end of my post to continue to Deana's blog.

This month we have 3 awesome guest hoppers that you got to check out!!!

Now, let's get started. For this month I chose to stay with the "Get Well" theme. I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Blooms Stamp set and the Birthday Bouquet designer series paper. Ha! Ha! Yes, it is a birthday themed stamp set and paper series, but I thought that it was very versatile and voila! 

My first project is the "Get Well" card.  I love the color combination of the desinger series paper. It's so soft and subtle.

The Pool Party Glitter Ribbon really adds a nice touch to the card. For the image, I first stamped it on Whisper White card stock using Black Memento Ink. Then, I re-inked and stamped the image onto Blushing Bride card stock. The flowers are then hand cut and adhered to to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals to add a 3-D effect.

For my second project, I created a matching Mini Tissue Holder using Mint Macaron card stock and the same designer series paper from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.

To Make the Tissue Holder:

1.  Cut a piece of card stock at 8" X 7 1/2".

2.  With the 8" side laying on the top edge of your Scoreboard, score at 1/2", 1 3/4", 6 1/4" and 7 1/2"

3.  Rotate and score at 2 1/4", 3 1/2", 5 3/4" and 7".

4.  Leaving the paper in this position, cut up to second score line. Do the same to the other side.  Remove the sections as pictured below. Note the diagonal cuts on the tabs as pictured.

5.  Now you are ready to decorate your holder. You will need 2 pieces of 4 1/4" X 2" Designer Series Paper for the top and the bottom of your holder. 2 pieces of 4 1/4" X 1" Designer Series Paper for the sides and 2 pieces of 2" x 1" Designer Series Paper for the side tabs. Adhere the cut designer series paper to the cut card stock. For the kleenex opening I used the thinlit from the Rose Garden Thinlit set. Once I adhered the designer series paper to the card stock, I positioned the thinlit where I wanted it to be and ran it through the Big Shot.

6.  Assemble your box and there you have it.

Hope you enjoyed my projects for the Hop.

Team Stamp It Father's Day Blog Hop

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to Team Stamp It's Father Day Blog Hop. I am so happy that you could join us for this month's blog hop. This month's hop is geared around Father's Day and our group has created some cool Father's Day projects.

For this month's project, I decided to get my finger's "inky" and use sponges and ink. Here is my project for this months hop:

For the background, I sponged using Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake, Tangelo Twist, Chocolate Chip, and Cherry Cobler. The image is stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I wanted to add some texture to the card so I decided to emboss the Crumb Cake card stock using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

Hope you enjoyed my share, Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think and use #stampitcontest so that you can be entered into our drawing. Thank you for stopping by and be sure to visit everyone elses blogs.

A Tribute to the Retiring 2014-2016 In Colors

Hi Stampers!

Today's blog post is a tribute to Stampin' Up!'s 2014-2016 In Colors that soon will be retiring. It will soon be time to say goodbye (sniff...sniff) to Lost Lagoon (my favorite), Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey. 

These were a set of cards made at our recent monthly card class. There was no way that we were going to say goodbye to these colors without a "last  horrah". 

The Rose Wonder Bundle made it a perfect match to showcase the In-Color and accenting it with the beautiful Rose die cut. To add a little touch, the In-Color card stock was run through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder. 

Now's the best time to stock up on your favorite retiring products before they are all gone. You can check out the retiring list by clicking HERE.

Here is the complete list of supplies needed to make these set of cards.
