Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop April Edition, Forever Friends!


Hey there! I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah, this week for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Live Convention! We get first look at the new Annual Catalog debuting on June 1st while we are here! whoo hoo!

Today's post for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop is all about friends. I chose the "Helping Me Grow" set from the Occasions Catalog for my creation:

I used So Saffron, Whisper White, and Basic Black for my color palette.

I punched a half-hole in the fold of the card front to thread through Basic Black 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and tie in a bow. I punched the black-heat-embossed greeting with the Word Window PUnch, then stamped the daisy behind the greeting with So Saffron ink.

I colored White Perfect Accents with my black Sharpie for some pop in the center of the flowers that I black-heat-embossed then sponged on So Saffron with a Sponge Dauber for more control.

Inside I black-heat-embossed the sentiment, then stamped the entire daisy image over it with So Saffron ink. The envelope is lined with So Saffron Designer Paper from the Subtles Color Collection Paper Stack.
