It's time to celebrate the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog AND 30 years of stampy goodness! Can you believe it's been thirty years that SU has been bringing awesome stamping goodies to us?! I'd have to say that they get better as each year passes, so thirty is looking pretty fabulous! And My Inky Friends agree, so we are sharing some of the fabulousness (is that a word?) with YOU!
Sara over at Lily's Ink Pad was before me. I just love her Enjoy Life projects, don't you? There are nine of us on this hop, so follow the links to see all the wonderful projects.
I was really taken with the design of the Accented Blooms stamp set and, with Memorial Day just past and Independence Day coming up, I was feeling rather patriotic, so I thought a red, white, and blue theme would be kind of cute. I really like the way it turned out! This set is available in wood-mount and clear-mount.
We don't have any "white stars on a field of blue" DSP, but the Blueberry Bushel polka-dots with the Lovely Lipstick stripes from the 2018-2020 In Colors DSP pack are certainly close enough!
I stamped off the Blueberry Bushel greeting once, so that the heat embossed B.B. cardstock piece would stand out more. The inside was dressed up with matching strips of DSP and the blooms from the front. They look like ball chrysanthemums, don't they?!
The envelope flap was covered with the striped DSP to give the recipient a little hint of what's inside. It's so easy to add that little extra! Just add some liquid glue around the edges of the envelope flap and adhere a 2-1/2" x 6" piece of DSP, making sure the top edge is even with the fold. Then trim off the excess - easy peasy!
That's all I have for now, but be sure to check back tomorrow. I have another Accented Blooms card to share, with a totally different look.Up next is Rhonda, The Stampin' Bunny, showing, what else.....Best Bunny!
Great card! The patriotic feeling is definitely striking! Looking forward to seeing what else you have up your sleeve.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh this is so cute! I have that DSP stack too and I never thought to put those two pieces together. So patriotic. I have lots of ideas now! I love your envelope too.ReplyDelete
