March Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our March Greek Isles 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 in March is the Stampin' Up! Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalogs!
For today I made a trio of cards using my Stampin' Blends and the water spritzer to create a color wash background.
Then I cut a piece of the beautiful Floral Romance DS Paper Vellum to lay over the color wash.  I then added pieces of ribbon for flair behind each sentiment.
The background of the sentiment is punched out using the Story Label Punch.  This punch is a limited time item and is only available until March 31.
The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and is punched out using the 1-1/4 inch circle punch.  Tip: For an added abstract look, use your aqua painter instead of the spritzer for the color wash background.

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 March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because "Spring Has Sprung" at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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 this special card I used the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet from Stampin' Up!  It has coordinating framelits that make creating with this bundle a snap.
I used the rectangle stitched framelits to give this card a picturesque look.  The colors are Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron. To get the two different tones of highland heather flowers, I stamped off two of the flowers for a lighter look.
This card was made with a special lady in mind who loves purple and loves Spring...my Grandmother!  She is turning 94 on March 21 and that is something to celebrate :)

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, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.
                                              https://www.kyliebertucci.com/2019/03/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html
                                              Do you know someone 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.  
                                              For today's card I used the Let It Ride stamp set.  It felt like the perfect sentiment to send to someone who needs a word of encouragement.  I created the background with the forest stamp and mossy meadow ink.  Then using some of my blends, I added color to the horses outside and inside of the card.
                                              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.
