Blooms & Wishes 4th of July Scrapbook Pages

 Hello everyone!  Today's project is a double 12" x 12" layout of fun 4th of July pages we made in my Scrapbook Club this month.  Can you believe this is my very first 4th of July scrapbook that I had in my class?  I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for about 8 years and my monthly Scrapbook Club has been going on just about that long too.  Oh yes, I did hear some of my longtime scrapbookers mentioned that too:-) 

I had so much fun designing these pages!  I used two stamps from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set to create a fun background of fireworks in Real Red and Night of Navy. 

These balloons are from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and are punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  I used the Tabs for Everything Stamp Set to create the striped star and then die cut the image with the star framelits from the Wood Crate Framelits.  I die cut a piece of Silver Foil Paper with the "stem" die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits to arrange my balloons and stars.  I added a pretty bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to finish it up.  Really cute!!!

I just realized that it's hard to see the embossed square pieces (one red, one blue and two whites) in this photo.  Sorry.... The white pieces are embossed with the new Oh My Stars Embossing Folder and the blue piece is embossed with the new Polka Dot Basics.  The red pieces is embossed with the Stripes Folder (retired). 

Supply List
Stamps - Blooms & Wishes, Tabs for Everything, Wood Words, Birthday Banners, Labeler Alphabet, Happy Celebrations
Paper - Whisper White (12" x 12"), Real Red, Night of Navy, Silver Foil, Whisper White, Silver, Red and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Wood Textures DSP
Ink - Night of Navy, Real Red
Tools and Accessories - Balloon Bouquet Punch, Circle Tab Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Night of Navy Baker's Twine, Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon

Eastern Palace Fresh Fig/Gold Thank You Card

Here is one of the Card Club projects we made last month.  It's so simple and gorgeous!

It is nicely paired up with this beautiful gold foil accent from the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP.  To make flowers shown above, I stamped two different images from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set  in Fresh Fig ink and die cut with the Eastern Medallion Thinlits.  The smaller flower actually has three die-cuts layered together to make into one flower.  I adhered one pearl in the center to secure it.

It's so fun to play with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits!  So many possibilities.....!  Amazing!!!

Ribbon of Courage Card - June Big Shot Class Project

Happy Monday everyone!  Here is one of the projects we are making for my Big Shot Class this month featuring the Ribbon of Courage Bundle (Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set and Support Ribbon Framelits) from the new Annual Catalog (see page 96-97).  While browsing through the catalog, one of the cards on page 97 instantly caught my eye and I knew I had to give it a try. 

I made a few changes to my card and used the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder for my background.  I also added a few Iridescent Sequins to my sentiment piece.  I love how it all turned out. 

I was so impressed with the flower and leaf framelits!  I used the Magnetic Platform to die cut card stock with the dies and they came out so clean and easy.  So pretty!!!
