June Blog Hop!

Yep, it's time for another exciting blog hop!
You've likely arrived here from Debbie's blog,
after viewing her wonderful ideas.

Too Kind is one of those sets that enables lovely
cards with minimal effort.  It uses the 2-step stamping
that won many converts to Stampin' Up!.

Colors:  Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, 
Cantaloupe Crisp, Whisper White, Smoky Slate,
2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack

Other:  Tulips Frame Embossing Folder,
Subtles Candy Dots, Linen Thread,
Punch for flag end 

My second project uses 2 more new catalog sets.
It features the Wildflower Meadow Bundle on page 83.
It's so nice to have product, that coordinates well
together, sold as discounted bundles.  In this case, 
the Wildflower Meadow background stamp and 
Wildflower Meadow Embossing folder.

Sets:  Wildflower Meadow, Chalk Talk (page 12).

Colors:  Old Olive, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette,
Whisper White

Other:  Chalk Talk Framelits, Wildflower 
Meadow Embossing folder and
Ovals Collection Framelit (NOTE: you can
position framelits anywhere on a card or layer, 
so that images can be framed in the background)!

My final project uses the Regarding Dahlias set on 
page 91 of the catalog.  It is a huge flower with lots of
useful greetings!  The Dehlia also looks cool when embossed.

Colors:  Basic Gray, Pool Party, Whisper White

Other:  Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder,
Adorning Accents Embossing Folder

Sooooo I hope that you enjoyed these projects.

Now, "skedaddle" over to Buffy's blog, to view
the wonderfully cool projects she has for you!

Great entries Jackie. I really like the Wildflower Meadow card. Nice combo with the Chalk Talk set and a cool idea to deboss behind the sentiment layer. Happy Summer!

What Jean said. As always, your projects totally wowed me. You make it look so easy! I think my favorite is the Wildflower Meadow and Chalk Talk card. So cute!

Kath Ricks said...

Too Kind is on my wish list and I love the card you made with it.

These are all so gorgeous I can't pick a favorite! Love the colors!

Jackie, what a wonderful floral show! I think my favourite is the first one, done with the Too Kind stamp set. The combination of the Blushing Bride and Crisp Cantaloupe is one that I wouldn't have thought to try and yet it looks absolutely perfect. Isn't it wonderful how that Candy Dot matches your Pear Pizzazz cardstock and ink perfectly. I think Stampin' Up! has a real winner with those.

Jackie, what beautiful projects. All three have great color combinations. I love the dahlia in Pool Party and how it brings out the petals perfectly. I also love the Blushing Bride and Crisp Cantaloupe combination!

Debbie Martin said...

Love all three cards, especially the first one, now I have to get that stamp set.

Christine said...

I love all 3 of your cards. My favorite is the first one. I love that embossing folder it just makes such a nice card. The colors are gorgeous.

Jackie lovin' all 3 of your projects! The first is my favorite. I didn't get the embossing folder yet, going to see if I 'really' need it...right?

PS: I'm a little late as I'm with my grandkids too! 3 week summer visit!

Love your "flower show" Jackie - I especially like the way you used the Wildflower Meadow embossing folder separately from the stamp as a coordinating element!
