Welcome to Septembers Stampin Friends blog hop! This month were saying it with sentiments. Sometimes the words say it all so this month we are letting them shine. I hope you’re joining me from Maureen. Rauchfuss’s blog! Her projects were great weren’t they? Be sure to continue onto Joe Blackman‘s blog and leave us a comment. We love to hear your thoughts on our projects.
For my projects! I did something I normally don’t do and that was because I didn’t have a sentiment for exactly what I wanted. I just grabbed my computer typed up the greeting and printed it out on my printer. Then I took the Stitched with the Whimsy dyes framed it around the greeting and cut it out! I sponge coordinating colors around the words to just give it a little bit of a pop. I used the Bewitching Bundle, stamped and punched out 2 hats with the coordinating punch! I used the second one on the bag below, I colored it in using an Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie, and Parakeet Party, markers stamped the boots and fussy cut them out, I finished the hat off with a bow using the Metallic Mesh ribbon.and finished off with a few rhinestones colored with the same ink!
Next I made this little treat bag out 6x12 sheet of gingham cottage DSP paper. On the 12” side on the top, score at 2 5 3/4 7 3/4 and 11 1/2 and turn on 6” side and score at 2. Cut up on your score lines io to the 2” making sure your 12 inch side of the paper on top. I cut a 2 x 3 3/4 strip again using the gingham cottage DSP and this time I chose the pumpkin pie plaid. I flagged the ends and stapled it to the side of the bag. I took my hole punch and punched out to little holes and added some bakers twine in black to hold the bag shut. I also printed out the greeting and trimmed it to 1 1/2x 2 added some rhinestones.
I hope you enjoy my projects, be sure to leave a comment and visit Jo Blackman’s Blog next.

Welcome to Stampin Friends Blog Hop. Each month we showcase themes that feature fun products or techniques. I hope you vist each month and enjoy our monthly blog hops as much as I do. I love trying to think outside my norm when I create for the hop, I want to share with you something I don’t normally do. The theme for July is called perfectly punched. For this theme we feature using a punch on our Projects. Now you would think using a punch would not be anything too different or difficult. But when I started planning my design, I realized I really do not use punches that often anymore. I’ve shifted so much stuff to dies that the punches have been kind of sitting there almost forgotten to be used.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost the end July this year seems to be flying by for me. So, before I get started with my projects, I want to make sure you are visiting me from Jo Blackman’s blog. And if you didn't make sure to visit Jo's blog and everyone’s blog. You can find a list of hoppers at the end.
To make my projects I used the Stampin Up Lovely in Linen Suite Collection. This is a pretty suite with rustic floral designs on the paper, coordinating punch, embossing folder and includes an elegant everyday stamp sentiments.
Be sure to visit Barb Pfeffer's blog next and leave a comment as well!
How crazy that it is June already! I feel like this month has just flown by!!! I guess that can just mean it is time or our monthly bl og hop sooner than later! Right?
Our theme this month is Lots of Layers. Who doesn't love cards with alot of layers and embellishments? I know I do! But in the craziness of life, I tend to make more simple cards, with a few layers and embellishments! I need to get them done!!! I enjoy this theme, because I get to pause and think about designing a card much different than I would. I don't want a card that will be over the top and too difficult to mail. And, a card like this would not be just for anyone, so I will definitely think about who I'd love to give a stepped up layered card to!
To make my projecys today I choice to use the new Stamin Up Suite called Texture Chic. Its a beautiful set with color combo of Petal Pink, Mango Melody, Pool Party, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Gold accents in the DSP . The stamp set has stunning images of different seasons and coordinates with a 19 piece die set.
Alright before we dive into the projects, I hope you visited from Barb Pfeffer's blog and saw her amazing projects. Make sure to visit all participants blogs and if your not sure whose blog you have been too, you can view a list at the end! Be sure to leave a comment! I love hearing what you think!
The card I chose was a Triple Easel card! I just love easel cards, I have never made a double easel card, let alone a triple! So, I gave it a go!!! I thought this type of fun card would definitely showcase layers, the beautiful DSP, Stamp set and dies.
The card came together easier than I thought. Your basically making 3 separate easels and then putting them all together!
Adhere the DSP to the Pool Party layer.
Stamp, diecut and embellish your card front!! Do the same to create the other easel frames
lay each easel folding in half. Add adhesive only to the bottom half (section without the fold) and lay the cardstock on top. make sure to lay the card stock flat ontop (it should cover the all the basic white) but only the bottom half will be adhered.
Adhere each easel ontop of one another like in the picture. Stand each easel up in the angle you prefer then adhere the next one down.
To see how this card comes together, I made a video showing how to assemble from start to finish.
Full disclosure, it's been a while since I recorded, so I'm a little off my game. Its a bit longer than i wanted due to a few interruptions along the way!
I hope you enjoy the projects I shared with you today.
