Stampin' Pretty Pals July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals July Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For my project today I used a variety of texture techniques.  First I embossed a piece of whisper white card stock with the tin tile 3D embossing folder. Then I added a bit of Sahara Sand ink with my sponge dauber to the embossing image on the whisper white.  I stamped the sentiment in Rococo Rose onto whisper white card stock and then I tore the edges for a vintage look around the sentiment. Then I added some Sahara Sand ink with my sponge dauber for a tarnished look.
A piece of the Woven Threads design series paper was just perfect for placing behind the sentiment and giving it more dimension on the card. I finished the card with some of the rich looking Rococo Rose gathered ribbon and added some gold metallic pearls.

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! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 14, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Special Occasions” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Do you know someone who needs an encouraging word? Maybe a get well soon or WOW you are amazing; even a thank you card? This is a great way to think of someone that you want to build up and give some love or encouragement.
For this card I used a little red, white and blue color scheme as we are celebrating the 4th of July this week here in the US.  The color trio is Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel.
I used the stamp set Stitched All Around with the coordinating Stitched Label Dies.  Then used the Tasteful Background Dies for the bottom of the card.  I added some of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots as a finishing touch.
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 Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project:

Up & Away For GDP195

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP195.  This week's Global Design Project theme challenge is flying high as we want to see your projects featuring balloons - hot air balloons, celebration balloons or speech bubbles. How fun is that?  Here's the festive badge for this week's theme challenge:
For this theme challenge I used the stamp set called Lift Me Up!  This stamp set is retired, but it was one of the few that I kept and has balloons in it.
I added a lot of dimension to this card with the layers that were triple banner punched along with the various balloons that were embossed with copper embossing powder and die cut with copper foil.  For a free PDF Tutorial on how to create this care...CLICK HERE.  Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project:
