Jar of Flowers for #GDP092

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP092.  This week we are CASEing the oh-so talented Steffi Helmschrott.  Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.
 
Here is the project this week that you can CASE. To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with this week.
I took my CASEing inspiration from the Jar of Love Stamp Set and the flowers from this card.  I also used the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack.  This is a new product from Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog and it makes creating a snap!  The colors in each card pack are so vibrant and rich, I love them :)

I stamped a few flowers in Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride over the Old Olive stems in the jar.  Then I just added some pearls to the flower centers and some random Glitter Enamel Dots.  They are super cool embellishments to add some bling for any project.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for this card.

Thailand Achievers June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for June 2017. This month our theme is "Our Annual Catalog Favorites".  The new Annual Catalog is incredible!  We want to give you some more ideas on how you can make the most of all your wonderful new products or to show you how to use ones that you haven't purchased as yet.
 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ 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 Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity .
I used two of my favorite colors on this #10 size Tea Party Invitation.  One of the first colors I bought from Stampin' Up! was Rich Razzleberry.  I used it on every card I made and mixed it with every other color.  I was in love with Rich Razzleberry!
Today I am mixing it with another color I am totally loving called Tranquil Tide.  This is one of the newest In Colors in the Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up!  And just like Rich Razzleberry I want to use it on every one of my cards now :)
When you get your new catalog, you page through it about a hundred times while making your list and checking it twice, or thrice!  One of my must have new items was the Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You can color it in any way you want.  It comes with 6 designs and when I saw the teapots, I knew exactly what I was going to use them for. 
Check out the "Sip & See" Tea Party invitation I created.  It was such a fun idea and worked out wonderfully.
Supply list for this invitation card:
  • Just Add Color DS Paper
  • Tranquil Tide Cardstock
  • Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 
  • Decorative Ribbon Border Punch

Birthday Delivery for #tttc002

Today I played along with the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  This is the second week of this brand new challenge so make sure to head over and play along with the Tic Tac Toe challenge! 
For this weeks challenge, the board was created by Design Team member Corinne Blake.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board above, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged you to create! 
I used Yellow, Gray, and Birthday, with a little of the wood and embossing thrown in.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Birthday Delivery.  I also used the wood grain coffee cup stamp from the Coffee CafĂ© for the center of the layered square background.

As a background addition I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on Smoky Slate card stock and layered it over So Saffron and Basic Gray.
I used a variety of punches to layer behind the sentiment.  First, I punched out two of the Best Badge shapes in Basic Gray and layered them over each other.  Then, I punched out the Pretty Label shape in So Saffron and die cut the sentiment using the Layering Ovals Framelits.
 
Thanks for stopping by today, here are all of the items I used for this card:

Pals June Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for June 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that start with “B” Baby, Brides, Birthday, etc. 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.
This card was made using the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set with the matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  I also used the Wood Crate Framelit for the bouquet holder on the front of the card.  The colors are such a fun variety of Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive.
The "B" on this card is for the Bride on her wedding day.  This stamp set is full of sentiments that are in the most beautiful font.  I also used the Petal Garden Memories and More Card Pack for the background trellis.  This card pack has such vibrant colors and is really easy to work with in card making.
I also used the Clear Wink of Stella to add some glimmer to these beautiful flowers and some metallic sequins for added bling!
Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure to continue with the hop and please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Kylie's June International Highlights!!!

http://bit.ly/KyliesJuneHighlightsVoteforMeHere
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.
http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/05/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html
Our theme for this month's highlight is Baby.  I used the stamp set called Birthday Delivery for this Special Baby Card.  Most people don't see a baby card when they see this stamp set.  I saw the poodles and thought of baby poodles, so why not babies? 
The colors for this card are Real Red, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight.  I used the Special Delivery Stamp set with the coordinating Design Series Paper.  I love how the matching Birthday Friends Framelits cut out all of the cute figures on the Birthday Memories DS Paper. 
I stamped the poodles with versa mark ink and heat embossed them in copper and then popped them up over the ds paper with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This card is an easel style so that it stands up on its own and the sentiment is shown as well as the front of the card.  This is a fun project, especially for those special deliveries from the stork!
I used a lot of products from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog on this card.  I love punches, so of course I had to incorporate a variety of the newest ones.  Here I showcase the Starburst punch and the Pretty Label punch; both new items!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:
