A Fabulous Blog Hop and an Anniversary

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a good week. I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend!! Today is an extra-special Friday because not only is it time for our monthly Stamping Symphony Blog Hop, but I am also celebrating my 8th Stamp-iversary! Eight years ago I joined Stampin' Up! to save a little money on my crafting hobby...little did I know where this adventure would take me! I am so thankful for the people I have met through Stampin' Up! and for the opportunities I have had to grow and stretch myself beyond anything I ever imagined. Onward and upward to bigger goals, greater accomplishments and new friends.

Speaking of friends, some of the most amazing people I know are part of my Stamping Symphony team and each month some of us participate in a blog hop to share what we love most. This month we are all about NEW products, so I pulled out a ton of new goodies to put my card together.

Can you spot all of the new products on this card? I started by embossing my Powder Pink card stock background with the new Tufted Dynamic TIEF. It is UH-mazing! To make it even MORE amazing, I added a touch of Wink of Stella to each sparkles juuuust enough. I used some Garden Impressions DSP to create my drapery fold, scoring the DSP alternating at 1" and 1/2" intervals. I love this look and it is a great way to showcase all that pretty paper in the catalogue.
I accented the pretty folded paper with a Melon Mambo card stock strip that I also embossed, this time with the Subtle the hint of texture it adds! I added the white laser-cut edging from the Delightfully Detailed Specialty DSP pack. It reminds me a bit of a string of pearls.

The label is die-cut from Whisper White card stock using the new Stitched Labels Framelits. I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set in Melon Mambo ink and added a Petal Pink Rhinestone Gem for a touch of glam. LOVE it!

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Stitched All Around set in Melon Mambo and the vine image from the same set in Powder Pink.  I think the thing I love most about this card is that it would work for just about any occasion. Gotta love having a few all-occasion cards in your stash!

Now, be sure to check out the other FABULOUS projects by my talented team!

  4. Love this. What size of DSP did you start with please. Thank you for sharing

    1. I took a 6" x 6" square of DSP and marked it at 2" on one side and 4" on the opposite side. I then cut on the diagonal from the 2" to the 4" mark, creating two same-sized angled pieces. This allows me to get two drapery folds from one 6" x 6" piece of DSP. Hope this helps :)
