June Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to another round of our Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop. If you have travel through then hop then you just came from my friend Rose's Blog. I love her projects. If you are just joining us then don't worry you can continue on from blog to blog just follow the links. I have three projects to share with you today all contain new catalog items. The first is a the new set called Make a Cake and then the cute little banner if from the Itty Bitty Banner Stamp Set. The colors are a mix of old with new including the new Primrose Petals with Whisper White and Baja Breeze. The Designer Series paper is the new Patio Party. I used the Stampin' Write Markers to ink up all the images and then cut out the small butterflies on the cake. For punches I used the Corner Rounder and the Scallop Trim Border. Of course I used the Big Shot too and added texture with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder and we have a new Framelits Set that cuts out the Itty Bitty Banners that is called wait for it Itty Bitty Framelits.

For the second card I used more of the new In Colors. This card has Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. I love the new ink pads. They ink up so smoothly and are great with solid image stamps like the new Betsy's Blossoms that I used on this card. I added just a bit of Baja Breeze 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and a Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punched out of Summer Starfruit. Clean and simple for this card.
My final project is a box that I made using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the new Apothecary Accents Framelits. I used the biggest Framelit as the flap that closes the box. The paper is the new Floral District. If you love the brights you will love this paper. I used Betsy's Blossoms again to add the flowers to the Rich Razzleberry Card Stock in Rich Razzleberry ink. I wanted to show off the new 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon so I added it to the front closure by making a bow and adding a Rich Razzleberry Button behind it. This box is wide enough to hold a bottle of lotion to give as a gift or you can fill it up with candy and a gift card to give to your favorite grad. 
Well, that is it for my projects for today. I hope you enjoyed them. Now you can travel on to Dawn's Blog just by clicking on the button below. Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment to let you know that you were here. Have a great day, Tonya
