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!
