Color Fusers Blog Hop- July 2016- Part 2

      Welcome to part 2 of the Color Fusers blog hop! Thank you for stopping by, today I have a gift idea for you! I create a card keeper portfolio which holds 4 cards and 4 envelopes. I learned this technique from Meg Loven, you can watch her video here.

     For my portfolio, I used Whisper White card stock (100730), the Butterfly Thinlits Dies (137360), Rhinestone basic jewels (119246), Gorgeous Grunge Clear-Mount Stamp Set (130517), Cucumber Crush Ink Pad (138324), Flirty Flamingo Ink Pad (141397), and Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad (141398).

     To create this card, I cut my layer, stamped random blotches using the splatter stamp from the set, then I used the butterfly thinlit to cut out the butterfly. I used my snail adhesive to adhere the butterfly's body to the card. I really enjoyed making this portfolio and I hope you give it a try.

     If you want to purchase any of the materials used to create this project, please visit my Stampin Up website at Stampin Up is running a fantastic rewards program. For every $50 you spend in July, Stampin Up will email you a $5 coupon to use in August!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2016-Part 1

I am pleased to welcome you to the Color Fusers blog hop. This is a fun hop that will showcase 3 Stampin Up colors; Flirt Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Cucumber Crush. If you're interested in purchasing any of the products used for this card, please follow the link to my Stampin Up online store:

For the card I've created today, I used a Hostess Stamp entitled Time of Year. This stamp is one that you can earn as a hostess or if you spend at least $150. For more details, please contact me and I'd be happy to give you more details

I actually got the idea for my card from a Stampin Up promo sheet they sent us while we were able to preorder at the start of the new catalog that just went live June 1st. My card base is a standard A2 card that measure 11x4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2 using the extra thick Whisper White cardstock. I used a sponge dauber, Peekaboo Peach, and  a circle from the circles framelits set to mask an area that I used to emboss the sentiment in gold embossing powder. I used Flirty Flamingo and one of the accent stamps from the set to add a couple of flowers to the card. Using Cucumber Crush, I stamped the birthday banner and fussy cut it out then popped it up using Stampin Up dimentionals for a little added texture to the card. Finally, to add a little bling, I used the Jewel Basic Rhinestones to add a center to a few of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed this card as I had so much fun making it. A list of materials and their item numbers are listed below the card.
