Stampin' Pretty Pals April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! While the COVID 19 pandemic is adding stress to our lives, we Pals hope this blog hop will help to lift your spirits. Let us inspire you to take a creative break and relax for a little while. This month our theme is “Special Occasions” where we have made a project for just about any occasion you can think of! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this fun set of women's birthday cards I used the Dressed To Impress Stamp set and coordinating All Dressed Up Dies.  The Best Dressed design series paper also coordinates with this bundle.  I created 4 of each card design with the four sentiments from the stamp set.  The shoes, perfume and lipstick were colored with my Stampin' Blend markers.
I used the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder for the background in Highland Heather card stock.  For the sentiment on this card I used the Darling Label Punch and the Label Me Lovely Punch.
For the sentiment on this card I used the Label Me Fancy Punch and the Story Label Punch. I also added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones in purple.
For the sentiment on this card I used the Label Me Fancy Punch and the Label Me Lovely Punch. I also added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones in green.
For the sentiment on this card I used the Story Label Punch and the Layering Scallop Oval Dies. I also used a touch of the clear wink of stella on the lipstick.

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 Wednesday, May 13th, when we will say “Goodbye to January Mini and 2019 Annual Catalog and/or Hello to 2020 Annual Catalog.” The Design Team will showcase their favorites from the retiring catalogs or new products from the new catalog. Don’t miss the fun! And, until then, please stay safe.
