It is that exciting time of the month when Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world join together for a Blog Hop challenge and this month’s challenge is going floral. It was the perfect opportunity to use one of my favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue (p.86-87) – Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. I teamed it with the Lots of Love Stamp Set, which is part of the same suite. This project also features the Happy Birthday Thinlits. Check out my following posts over the next few days as to how this same basic design can be reworked for a completely different effect.
Tip: Die cutting your Thinlits from patterned paper really provides some added WOW to your projects.
Most of the cards I create I do with a particular purpose in mind. I created this card for a Crafty Paper Bees member’s birthday. As you have probably guessed, I send out lots of cards – usually, about 200 individual mailings to friends, family, members of the Ann’s PaperWorks community and team members – YIKES!!!!!
To check out the projects by some talented stampers, click the links at the very bottom of this post. I love this month’s projects by all my colleagues.
