Happy Saturday and welcome to my blog!  Today I am hopping along the Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop as we showcase projects we are working on to inspire you to create along with us.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

It's preorder time for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for the upcoming July-December 2021 Mini Catalog!  I have not placed my order, yet, as I wanted to have the catalog in my hands to enjoy before deciding what to purchase.  I was glancing through some catalogs in my mailbox (you know the ones I'm talking about... you receive a different one every other week with a few pages moved around and a different cover so you think you're seeing different stuff) and just squealed with excitement - well, silently, so not to concern my household.  Once again, Stampin' Up! is on trend with all the new stuff!!!

The Whimsy & Wonder Suite (pp 24-25, July-December 2021 Mini Catalog) reminds me of Christmases past... and is so ON TREND!!!  The colors are fun, cheerful and whimsical.  I couldn't resist CAS(e)ing one of the sheets in the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper (p. 25, Jul-Dec 2021 Mini) which I can't share with you, yet, as the catalog is not live.  My customers should be receiving their copies of this amazing new mini catalog within the next two weeks. 

Project Details

Adhere 1/2" strips of Misty Moonlight, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Blushing Bride and Polished Pink on a Basic White layer and set aside.  Place a second piece of Basic White Cardstock on your Stamparatus and place the large Hand-Penned Petals floral where you wish, pick the stamp up with the plate, apply Memento ink and stamp onto the Basic White Cardstock,   Stamp the floral images with Petal Pink and Misty Moonlight inks.  Stamp the two leaves with Mossy Meadow ink.  Use the a damp Fine Tip Water Painter to dot the flower centers with Polished Pink ink.  Create a soft shadow around the image with the Light Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends Marker... use short quick strokes for texture.

Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark onto the Mint Macaron scrap piece, heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and die-cut with the smallest Scalloped & Contours scalloped die.  Trim as shown (trimming close to the panel indentation on three sides).  Thread White Baker's Twine through the two holes and tie off with a bow.  Adhere to two pieces of Mint Macaron to layer up the sentiment panel.  Trim the custom DSP to a smither (1/8") and adhere to the card front.  Adhere the stamped panel to the card front.

No card is complete without stamping the inside and the envelope!  Replicate the stamping, coloring and the layers for the inside allowing room for corresponding to the recipient.  Stamp and color the envelope front and flap to give the recipient a sneak peek to what's inside.
