Blooms & Butterflies June 2016 Color Challenge: Stampin' Up! Timeless Textures Stamp Set

Hey Guys!  
I have a fun card that I made for a Color Challenge 
to share with you today!  

I am part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators called the Blooms & Butterflies.  The Blooms are Hobbyist Demonstrators and the Butterflies are Career Demonstrators.  It is such a supportive and inspiring group of very talented ladies!  We will be doing a monthly Color Challenge hosted over at our Team Leader's website BrandysCards.com

You can head over to Brandy's website to see all of the beautiful cards that my teammates made using the color combination below. 

And, I challenge you to play along!
Leave me a link in the comments below so I can check out your creations with this color combo!  Or, you can Email me a photo of your cards and I will feature them here on my blog!


This is the card that I created for this month's color challenge.  I love how it turned out and it was sooo easy to create!  It is basically a one layer card!  I love how the flower die cut has built in dimension even when glued right to the card front.  And, the Banner Duet Punch is my new favorite tool!  You can save 10% when you buy it bundled with the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  When you use them together you can easily create sentiments for countless occasions!  I popped the banner up with Stampin' Dimensionals for  little extra pop. 


Here's a closer look at my super simple card and below is a video sharing how I created it!


Below is a list of products I used to create this card with links to my online store if I have inspired you to do any shopping :)

New Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog - Blogging Friends Blog Hop June 2016

Welcome back to another Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

I want to welcome all of you new visitors to my blog!  Thanks for following along our Hop!  Be sure to Subscribe on the right hand side of my blog so you don't miss out on our Blog Hop next month!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and we will be bringing you fun paper crafting ideas using Stampin' Up! products on the 1st of every month.  I hope you have been enjoying the Hop so far.  So many fun ideas from so many talented crafters!!!  

You should have arrived here from Mary's Blog.  
I always love her projects!


This month, we are celebrating the launch of the new annual Stampin' Up! Catalog by sharing projects that we created using our favorite brand new products! You can view the new catalog online by clicking HERE.  If you would like a copy of the new catalog, contact your demonstrator.  If you don't already have a demonstrator I would love to be your demonstrator and you can request a catalog from me by clicking HERE.  If you are in the Hudson Valley in New York, you can attend my Catalog Launch Party on Sunday June 19th at 4pm. Learn more about it HERE.


I just adore the colors and patterns in the new Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and I used that as the inspiration for my card today.  If you are able to attend my Catalog Launch Party, this is a sneak peek of one of the cards we will be creating :)



The Botanical Builder Framelits are so fun to use!  I just cut out a bunch of flowers and flower centers using the coordinating card stock colors listed right on the Affectionately Yours Paper and then had fun mixing and matching.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to coordinate all of the colors in your project!




I made two cards using each of the banners that you can make with the new banner punch from the Thoughtful Banners Bundle.  I just love all of the different sentiments that come in this set!  You can really use it to create a card for any occasion!  I needed a few more Birthday cards so I chose Happy Birthday, but this stamp set includes everything from Mother's & Father's Day to Graduation to Thank You...  with 53 stamps included in this set the possibilities are endless!  And, don't forget, when you buy the stamp set bundled with the punch you will save 10% off both items!
