Out theme this week is favorite shade of PINK!

Once again, a difficult one because there are soo many pretty shades that Stampin’ Up has! And the new one – Powder Pink – it’s just lovely!

I’ll go with a classic. Melon Mambo.

I also went with a lovely hostess stamp set, Tranquil Tulips –

….and, the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch in Vellum Card Stock. It makes a nice border that either side can be used. I went the smaller, delicate scallops.

I stamped all the tulips and fussy cut each one of them. When I adhered them to the card front, some were flat. Some were raised. Gives a little depth!

The sentiment, hugs, is a new thinlits too, Lovely Words. I’ve used it a lot. It’s a favorite of mine! I removed it from its border to use it freely here.

This is a really pretty card. The stamp set. A must have too!

See what the other Design Team members’ favorite ‘pink’ is by hopping along out blog hop.

We Create June Blog Hop

This is my third of three posts today for Three post Thursday and new catalog launching!! This is a blog hop for We Create!

I went with one of my favorites from the catalog so far, the Lovely Words Thinlits –

A simple card showcasing the cutout words.

I paired the framelits with a sentiment from Wood Words. I used two new In-Colors here too, Powder Pink and Berry Burst.

I stepped up this card by adding the 1/8 Silver ribbon. Surprisingly, it curled when I ran it quickly along a pair of scissors! I also added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Please leave a comment before going onto the talented Kris Kilkenny – we all love to read your comments!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Wood Words
  • Framelits – Lovely Words Thinlits
  • Card Stock – Berry Burst, Powder Pink

Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Tri-Fold Cards

Happy Saturday!

On Saturdays, I participate in a blog hop with the talented ladies at Create with Connie and Mary!

Our theme this week is Tri-Fold cards!

This was a perfect time to try out this nifty folding card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Lovely Inside & Out, Lovely Inside & Out Bundle, Lovely Words Thinlits, Sending Love DSP, CCMC, blog hop

Looks cute enough, right? It’s a 4×4 card from the front…….but, when you start to open it…….

Keep opening it…….

libbystamps, stampin up, Lovely Inside & Out, Lovely Inside & Out Bundle, Lovely Words Thinlits, Sending Love DSP, CCMC, blog hop

Tada!!! Isn’t this just ‘lovely‘,’as can be‘, ‘inside & out‘?????

I’m so glad I tried this type of tri-fold card. It was so easy! I wasn’t able to find a ‘how to’ on the interweb – so I just winged it!

I started with an 8×8 square. Scored at 4 both ways. I removed one of the squares, plus a tiny tiny bit more on the side to accommodate for the fold down – as the card closes, it needed to be less bulky.

Once I figured out the base, I decorated it. I used a new upcoming Stampin’ Up bundle, Lovely Inside & Out paired with some retiring designer series paper from the Occasions Mini. The washi tape is from the April 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. These colors are just wonderful together!

A blog hop is where you go from person to person to see what there take is on a theme. We have lots of talent on our team so check them out! Who knows, you might get some great ideas for a new tri-fold card!
