Pals Blog Hop: Hoppin’ with the Cutest Cows Bundle & WOW! Video!

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is “It’s All About the Kids.” We hope that you will be inspired by the creations the Pals are sharing with you! You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

WHAT I LOVE!  The Stampin’ Up! Cutest Cows punch and stamp set the stage for smiles from all ages!   They are on the list of My Favorite Things from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Mini Catalog!  I dialed up the whimsy using a modern polka dot pattern in Highland Heather (Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper).  SAVE 10% when you purchase the Cutest Cows punch and stamp set as a bundle. Moo!

VOILA!  I used the the darker of the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends to quickly color the Stampin’ Up! Black and White 1/4” Gingham Ribbon. It’s a simple technique that results in impeccable color coordination of your choice.  My 1 Minute to WOW! video shows you how! TIP: As an alternative, you can use Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers instead of Stampin’ Blends to color the ribbon.

PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Begin by burnishing the fold of the Gorgeous Grape card base with a Bone Folder.

Adhere the Highland Heather card stock layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Layer and adhere the polka dot Designer Series Paper, Gorgeous Grape, and Basic White card stock together as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use the dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend (brush side) to color the Black & White Gingham ribbon. Protect your surface below with grid paper.  Allow a few minutes to dry.  

Wrap ribbon around the 3 layers and secure with a bow on the left.

Adhere the layers to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Clear Blocks to stamp (Cutest Cows Stamp Set) the cow body and cow head in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink onto the coordinating Basic White layers.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop the cow body as shown with the Nested Essentials 2 3/8 x 3 rounded rectangle die and the sentiment with the Everyday Details 1 3/8 stitched circle die.

Crop the cow head with coordinating Cutest Cows Punch.

Color the cow’s body and head with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.

Adhere all pieces as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the Basic White Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the DSP. Center and line up the Basic Borders scalloped edge die, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard). Watch my Pretty Envelope Flap WOW! video for a quick demonstration here.
