2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop. This blog features talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world, sharing their amazing projects to inspire you to get creative. You may have just visited the blog of the talented Pip Todman (Queen Pip) - UK or perhaps you are starting your journey here. Our theme for October is Pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. I think we have all been touched in some way by this terrible disease and participating in this blog hop and sharing my creativity is my way of sharing the beauty of love and hope through art.

My project for this hop features the Lovely Words Thinlets dies from the Lovely Inside & Out Bundle from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. The stamp set I chose for the flower accents is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlets dies, from the Colorful Seasons bundle, which is also in the Annual Catalog. 

In times of need, receiving a card can make a world of difference. I chose to create a card that I would give to a friend to help lift their spirits when they are feeling down. The card base was created with Powder Pink cardstock and I added a layer of Berry Burst cardstock to create the background for my card design. I die cut the "friend" sentiment from Silver foil and used one of the oval dies from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the oval frame. I layered it on top of a scalloped oval cut from Fresh Fig cardstock die cut with one of the scalloped ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies and centered it on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I die cut the flowers from Powder Pink cardstock and attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I highlighted them with Wink of Stella. The flowers on the Berry Burst cardstock layer were stamped with Berry Burst Classic ink and I embossed them with Clear Embossing powder to make them shine.

I loved that I was able to create this card using the 2017-2019 In Colors (Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig) and the Silver Foil just added that touch of elegance. I don't often create with the color Pink, but I must admit, I do love these colors and I feel that I will be using this combination more often in the future.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I hope it helps to inspire you to create your own card to someone special to let them know you care. Now it is time to visit Teri and see her amazing blog post. I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop.

Happy Stampin',
