Pals June Blog Hop – Pick a “B!”

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B.”  Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is.  Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create a simple wedding card using Stampin Up Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper - Mary Fish StampinUp

My “B” card idea for today’s hop is “bridal” (although I think “birthday” would work just as well).  The  simple design is anchored by the gorgeous paper from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, new in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

Fresh picked inspiration!  Watch this Stampin’ Up! video sharing the design process for the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper!


Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Petal Pink card stock and a Stampin’ Trimmer.  It cuts and scores.

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Snail Adhesive to the card base.  Center and adhere (Snail) a 3 x 4 pattern from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.

Cut Old Olive card stock to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Create a frame by cropping the center with the rectangle die from Sliding Door Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Magnetic Platform.

Emboss frame with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder in BOTH the portrait and landscape directions (back and forth in each direction).  This gives a beautiful, linen finish!  Adhere a 4″ piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the back of the frame.  Here’s a WOW!  video with tips on using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Crop “dream” sentiment using Thick Very Vanilla card stock, the “dream” die from Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies, Precision Base Plate (perfect for detailed dies) and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Adhere to sides of frame over the burlap ribbon.

Using the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot, crop more of the same pattern (5 1/4 x 4)  from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.   Adhere with Snail to the inside flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Die.
