Stampin' Pretty Pals May Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Pals Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Goodbye to January-June Mini and 2019-2020 Annual Catalogs and Hello to 2020-2021 Annual Catalog” where the Design Team is showcasing their favorites from the retiring catalogs or products in the new catalog! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this card I used a variety of retiring and carrying over products from Stampin' Up!.  Here is the card Recipe:
  • Whisper White Card Base cut to 8-1/2" by 4-1/4"
  • Basic Black card stock layer cut to 4" by 5-1/4"
  • Parisian Blossoms DSP layer cut to 3-3/4" by 5"
  • Parisian Blossoms DSP layer cut to 4" by 1"
  • Basic Black 3/8" Scallop Edge Ribbon 
  • 1-1/4" Circle Punch - Champagne Foil Sheet
  • 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punch - Sentiment on Whisper White
  • Timeless Tropical Stamp Set
  • Petal Pink Classic Stamp Pad
  • Butterfly Beauty Dies - Cut in Basic Black card stock
  • Tuxedo Black Ink Pad 
For the sentiment I stamped a flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set in petal pink ink onto whisper white card stock and then stamped the sentiment "Hello" in Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I punched it out using the 1-1/8" scallop circle punch.  It is hard to see in the picture, but this ds paper really shines!
I am sad to see these smaller circle punches being retired as I use them quite often for quick sentiments and layers.  The Parisian Blossoms DSP was one of my favorites from the mini catalog that is also retiring.  Luckily the Butterfly Beauty Dies and the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set are both carrying over into the new Annual Catalog!

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 June 10th, with our theme “New 2020-2022 In Colors.” We can’t wait to show you the newest In Colors in the Stampin’ Up! color family. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.

        3. Lovely layering! Always so nice to see how others put their own stamp on the Pals Hop!
