Impossible Chic Card for Creative Creases Challenge #1


Today I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #1.  Because fun folds are not limited to just cards, don’t be afraid to submit your 3D projects, just make sure that your work involves paper and stamps.
For this fun challenge I used the stamp set called Hey Birthday Chic!  And I made the Impossible Card.  Which really is not so impossible to make.  These chics make the perfect happy birthday card along with that balloon punch from Stampin' Up!
I love how the colors of this design series paper look sort of like a flower garden with the fence die cuts.  For a free PDF Tutorial on how to create this project...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:

February 2021 Maui Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our February Maui Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. 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.

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 fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme is "Current Products"!

For today's project I used one of my most favorite design series papers from the January-June Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! called Hydrangea Hill DSP.  It is amazing how you can create a beautiful card with just this dsp.  I layered it over a basic white card base and then die cut the flowers from the dsp and popped them on with dimensionals.  The finishing touch was the gorgeous grape ribbon and pastel pearls.

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

Stampin' Pretty Pals January Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin' Pretty Pals' Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring "Sale-A-Bration Products." We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don't forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For today's project I used the Berry Blessings Bundle that coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from Stampin' Up!  You can earn the Berry Blessings bundle for free with your $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.  I made a mini paper pumpkin box to put a few sweet treats in.  The belly band slips off so you can open it.  I love the bright colors of this sweet design series paper.  I love how you can use the berry punch to make 3D strawberries that seem so realistic.  I cased this idea from the Stampin' Up! January-June Mini Catalog and Mary Deatherage on pinterest.  For full instructions on how to make this project click HERE

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 our next blog hop on February 10th when our theme will be "Birthday Bonanza" where the design team will be sharing birthday projects that celebrate our family and friends. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
