Hello and welcome to the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop for August. Our theme this month is to highlight all the wonderful punches we have in our catalogs! We are a group of global Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world who hop together each month to share creativity and inspiration with you in a variety of different themes and products! We are happy to have you join us and hope you make a complete hop with us, and while comments are not required we greatly appreciate them! You have have arrived from Joy's blog where she shared a wonderful project with us.
I have decided to use the Flowers of Friendship bundle, which features the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and the Flowers & Leaves punch and it can be found in our annual catalog. My card base is thick basic white and is cut to 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". My basic black layer is cut to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and then my basic white is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".
I stamped my sentiment in Memento black ink in the lower right hand corner of the white layer. I then used scraps of basic white and memento ink to stamp 10 of the larger flower and 5 of the smaller flower and 5 of each of the small and big leaves. I used stampin' blends to color all of my leaves and flowers. I used light and dark in polished pink, poppy parade, granny apple green, mango melody, magenta madness and bermuda bay. I used light black blend for center of flowers. Once colored I punched them all out.
I layered the two larger flowers and small flower with glue dots, with the large ones offset from each other. I then adhered them to my card using dimensionals. I then used glue dots to tuck the leaves in under each flower. To finish off the front I added a small basic rhinestone to each center.
For the inside I stamped my sentiment with Memento black ink again, and then stamped each of the small flowers in the same colors I used on the front.
I hope you have enjoyed my card I shared with you today featuring our punches. I hope you continue with our hop and visit everyone who participated today to gain some inspiration and creativity. Perhaps you will even have a shopping list and earn FREE Sale-A-Bration items when finished with your demonstrator.
