Blogging Friends Blog Hop – Case the Designer

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all across the U.S. and Canada. Most of us haven’t met in person, but love Stampin’ Up and want to share with you! Please join us on the 1st Friday of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!  Each month we’ll have a different theme! This month it’s Case the Designer with Sale-A-Bration!

Here is the lovely project from Laura Borchert that we are CASE-ing today. If you are unfamiliar with “CASE”, it’s short for Copy and Share Everything.

The project I have for you today is based on Laura’s layout. I was able to use new products from both the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration selections.

The stamp set I used is Tea Together. It has a matching Tea Time framelit set available as a Sale-A-Bration item. They go great together!
I was so happy to not have to fussy cut around all the little flowers – there is a die for them! And, of course, for the tea cup, as well as a tea kettle, some more flowers, and some leaves!  It’s a great tool to have.
For the rest of the card, I used the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the fun background, the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love ribbon combo pack, a circle punched from vellum, and a bit of Wink of Stella to make the flowers sparkle.
The flowers and the tea cup were all colored on Whisper White cardstock with Stampin Blends – including two new colors – Mossy Meadow and Balmy Blue. Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo round out the markers to match the ribbon. These colors go lovely together, and really pop against the Very Vanilla background.

Here’s a close up of the sparkle on the tea cup. You can see the ribbon has a bit of natural sparkle to it as well.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and I would love to see your take on CASE-ing my card!
