What's New At SU Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to the What's New at SU Summer Blog Hop as we share projects featuring products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas for Summer to help inspire you. 

 When I think of Summer, I am drawn to the beautiful flowers that bloom in the garden and that was my inspiration for my card design today. I chose to use the new Floral Essence Bundle (item #151055) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and paired it with Grapefruit Grove, one of the beautiful 2018-2020 In Colors that I feel is a perfect Summer color. I started with a Grapefruit Grove cardstock card base and added a layer of Grapefruit Grove Gingham designer series paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack (item #149618). I think gingham is one of those traditional Summer patterns and I am so happy that Stampin' Up! has made it available in all of its beautiful colors for us to create with. 
 To create the focal layer, I die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and heat embossed the sentiment from the Floral Essence Photopolymer stamp set (item #149450) with Gold embossing powder. 
For the floral element, I stamped the three petal flower image onto Whisper White cardstock twice and heat embossed them with Gold embossing powder. I then punched them out using the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch (item #149522). Did you know that when order both the punch and stamp set as a bundle you can save 10%? 

 Layering the flowers on top of each other I attached them together with Mini Glue Dots. I added a Gold Faceted Gem (item #144141) to the center of the flower. Next I stamped the leaf image twice with Pear Pizzazz Classic ink onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and punched the out using the Leaf Punch (item #144667). I attached the leaves to the label along the edges with Snail Adhesive. 
To create the background behind the label, I attached a Pearlized Doily (item #146936) to the designer series paper layer and then attached the label with Stampin' Dimensionals to line up over the top of the doily. To complete the card design, I added the flower to the label using a Stampin' Dimensional, lining it up between the leaves. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Summer card design helps inspire you to explore new colors and ideas to celebrate this wonderful season. If you live in the U.S. and you do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you with your creative needs.
