Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B”, features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I chose a Birthday card for my “B” of the day.  I may be over-using the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!, but every year they just get better.  (As does the catalog)  Wow on everything in this new catalog!! So here is my new Birthday Card:


Happy Birthday Gorgeous, 143662


I love how this card turned out.  I think it is bright and happy which equals a SMILE.  That is my goal.  I used two of the new In Colors with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.  You are going to see a lot of the Lemon Lime Twist!  I am in love and find myself continually reaching for it.  Quite a few of the items I  used today are new to this catalog. WOW!

  • For this card the base is Berry Burst card stock at 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 folded in half.
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 5 1/4 X 4
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8 and embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder
  • The Lemon Lime scalloped oval is from the Layering Ovals Framelits
  • Happy Birthday is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then cut with the corresponding Layering Oval.
  • The balloons are stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst and punched with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I used the In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to draw the string for the balloons.
  • The balloons and Happy Birthday are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
  • The glitter dots are the new Glitter Enamel Dots and are the palest of the berry color
