Mediterranean Cruise Highlights - Vacation Achievers June Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for June. This month our theme is Mediterranean Cruise HighlightsYou may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Stamping Serenity

I had the wonderful fortune of earning the Mediterranean Cruise and traveling with some of my Stampin' Up! peeps.  This month we are all sharing highlights, pictures and projects on our blog hop.  This was a trip of a lifetime and something I never thought I would be able to earn, but I found that when the right pieces of my Stampin' Up! business puzzle got put together it was achievable.  You too can earn a trip of a lifetime!
 
Check out all of these pictures of my pals and I on our journey.  Stampin' Up! was so generous with gifts and pampering, it was so exciting to see Spain, Italy and France along with some superstar demonstrators who I have looked up to for inspiration!


In this final picture, Susan Itell and I were trying to get a photo bomb of our fearless leader Mary Fish, well that sort of turned out, she is barely visible behind me...lol!  We still enjoyed our time in Naples, Italy where we had pizza and gelato.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing pictures and projects you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Flourishing Notes for PPA306!

I made this card for the Pals Paper Arts 306 Sketch Challenge.  I am in love with the beautiful detail of the Flourishing Thinlits Dies!  They make creating a WOW project so much easier.  The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set that co-ordinates with these thinlits.  I added some of the Sweet Sugarplum hearts from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes.  The background design series paper is from the Blooms and Bliss DS Paper Stack.  Head on over to the Pals Paper Arts and play along or just check out all of the great projects on display.

Pals June 2016 Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop Theme/Title: Pick a “B”: Birthday, Bride, Baby
We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are based on “B“ themes such as Birthday, Bride or Baby. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
For this project I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits and the Floral Phrases Stamp Set along with a bunch of other new Stampin' Up! goodies.  Let me tell you how much I love these new thinlits, they are so detailed and delicate, yet they come out almost perfect using the precision base plate with the big shot.  Below is the inside of the card, also using stamps from the Floral Phrases.
Check out all the Stampin' Up! items I used in the carousel below.  Here is the Color Trio I used for today's card:

Flourish Thank You!

Today's card features some of the newest items from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The flowers on the top are from the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  These dies are so pretty and turn out so delicate, but are super easy to remove from the die.  The sentiment is stamped in the new Bermuda Bay Ombre Stamp Pad from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set.  The Smoky Slate background is textured using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  I also added a few rhinestones to the flowers.  Here is the color trio:


The Ombre stamp pads were on my must have wish list on and come in Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry.  Here are all the Stampin' Up! supplies I used for today's project.  Shop HERE for your favorites today!
