Welcome back! I'm so glad you could join the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team for our next Blog Hop of May! Today we are featuring projects with new supplies for the month of May. You'll probably see lots of ideas for Mother's Day and Father's Day coming up. You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, make sure you go all around the hop and get to her beautiful project!
For today's hop, I made a Mother's Day card...because I need one! I also need to pop this baby in the mail soon, or it won't get to my Mom in time. But, I digress! This card uses one of the flowers from the Best Of Flowers Clear-mount Stamp Set. Have you seen the "Best of" sets? They are special sets released one per month, with some of the best images over Stampin' Up!'s 25 years all gathered around a different theme each month. The April set focuses on flowers, and my Mom loves flowers. I used Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers on the flower stamp, and stamped it twice across a piece of Summer Starfruit cardstock. The greetings are from the Amazing Family Clear-Mount Stamp Set stamped in Soft Suede, and the decorative element at the top is from the same set stamped in Calypso Coral. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top as well.
I added a piece of Old Olive 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon next, and also stamped the Amazing Accent Stampin' Around Standard Wheel with Calypso Coral ink on a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.The card front has a piece of Summer Starfruit from the 2012-2014 In Color Paper Stack. I also diecut a strip of Soft Suede cardstock using the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies. The strip was adhered to the stamped panel, and the whole thing was adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Well, that is all for today. You will find the supplies listed below. Also, you’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature another hop with all new projects! And, don’t forget to click to get to Sarah’s Blog for the next stop on the hop. You won’t want to miss her clever project. Thanks for stopping by!
