We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

Stampin' Pretty Pals March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals. 
Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member.  Leave me a comment and I will be posting the blog candy winner on Friday.  You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this fun critter card I used the Birthday Bonanza Design Series Paper.  It is so fun and festive for a birthday card.  I punched out those cuddly cuties using the 1-3/4 inch circle punch and then punched out the little circle windows using the 2 inch circle punch.  I layered a window sheet under the top layer of the card.  Then I used the foam adhesive strips around each circle to add the sequins and make this a shaker card.
I used the layering scallop circle dies to make the daffodil delight outline for each little circle window.  The sentiment comes from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and is punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  These little Birthday Bonanza Buddies really know how to bring the party!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team.  My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 8th, for our “Special Occasions” blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects for weddings, graduation, anniversary, baby, Mother’s/Father’s Day or any special occasion. Don’t miss the fun!
