Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The theme of this month’s blog hop is perfect for me.  I love sentiments.  My favorites are mixed fonts,  different sizes, sayings that are for occasions, as well as some that are just for fun.  Today’s card is in the Just For Fun category with a side of encouragement.


And if you cannot tell from my usual cards, I LOVE Bright Colors!!  The mix of this AWESOME sentiment from the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set with the brightness of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper is a perfect match in my opinion!

The sentiment is heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  It is stamped using Versamark Ink on Granny Apple Green card stock.  The sentiment is die cut using the border from Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I love the detail around the edges.

The added addition of the butterflies shows my love of the DSP.  I had a strip left from cutting the paper and wanted a way to use it.  I chose the little butterfly from the same die set and cut it so each one showed different colors from the DSP.  And of course, you have to have some Bling!!  So each butterfly received a little rhinestone so they could shine a little more.

My card is not at all technically difficult.  This is a bright and fun card that I hope makes everyone simply SMILE!!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 14th when our theme is “Tag, You’re It!” Participants will showcase tags or 3D items that will be great for gifts for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
