Stampin' Up! Black & White Theme Stampers Showcase May 2021 Blog Hop


Welcome to the May 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects inspired by a classic "Black & White" theme.  I love the gorgeous True Love Designer Series Paper, and its retiring in June, so I thought it would be perfect to use for this project.  I used both my Heart & Kiss Punches for the large and small hearts, and accented them with Resin Hearts from the retiring Snail Mail Suite.  
I adhered all the punched hearts to my Basic White cardstock layer and then used my Paper Snips to trim around the edges.  The center heart & sentiment label are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a little pop of color with a red Resin Heart.
Card Base - Basic White Thick Cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score at 4 1/4" and fold.
Layer 1 - Basic Black Cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 - Basic White Cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" & 1/2" x 3" piece for sentiment label
Large Hearts - True Love DSP
Small Hearts - Basic Black Cardstock punched with the Kiss Punch

Stampin' Up! Shaded Summer Florals for the Creative Cardiology Team May 2021 Blog Hop


Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team May 2021 Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects featuring new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog products.  Today I'm using the new Shaded Summer stamp set.  I love the elegant floral images and the variety of sentiments in a mix of print and scripted font.  I went with a simple design in a classic pairing of Pale Papaya and Night of Navy.  I wasn't sure how much I'd like the Pale Papaya color, but I've found myself using it a lot and I'm loving it!  
I stamped the floral images in Night of Navy ink then colored them in with my Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Combo Markers.  
The Genial Gems are the perfect finishing touch of bling.
Card Base - Pale Papay 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score and fold at 4 1/4"
Layer 1:  Night of Navy 4" x 5 1/4"
Layer 2:  Basic White 3" x 4 1/4"
