Crafty Cupcakes Blog Hop July 2017


Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for July 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Jillian Selwood of Purple Jelly Designs based in the UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is Annual Catalogue Favourites and I've chosen to use the Beautiful Bouquet and Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies. 

This is the card I have created with this fabulous set.

Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies

I started off with a card base of Powder Pink, one of the new In Colours for 2017-19. I then embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the new Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (DTIEF), I decided to use the debossed side as I thought it gave more depth. I then layered a piece of  Emerald Envy cardstock and Melon Mambo cardstock at a jaunty angle, this is really not my style at all but I really like the way it looks. I then die cut the stems and leaves in Emerald Envy and die cut three lots of flowers in Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Powder Pink, I wasn't sure which colour to use but when I placed them next to each other I quite liked the effect of different shades of pink. I also die cut the bow using Powder Pink.

To finish off I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers and the bow, pearls in the centre of all the flowers and the bow and two large pearls on each of the card layers. I decided not to stamp a sentiment on the front of the card as I just liked the simplicity of it. Before I sent it to someone I will stamp a sentiment on the inside.
