April Edition of Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop


Welcome to our April blog hop! Are you just joining or did you hop over from Dawn's blog? I love all of her creations! This month we are using one of my favorite products: the silver glimmer paper! It's so shiny and adds a lot of pop to any project.

Today could have been classified as a craft room disaster; especially since I don't currently have a craft space. We are in the process of rearranging and organizing the entire house and things are in shambles. There are craft supplies in every room of the house except the bathroom (and if it were bigger, there might be some in there too). My husband walked in today and said, "Really?" when he saw that I had pushed the coffee table against the tv stand, cedar chest against the coffee table, and then set up my craft table between that and the couch. I merely looked at him and said, "hey, I needed a work space."

Despite a few hiccups and the fact that I still can't locate my Simply Scored or Paper Trimmer, I'm happy with the outcome of my wedding card. I find that I really enjoy making the clean and simple cards lately, which is a huge leap for me because I used to think "boring and plain" when I would find simple cards I made way back in the day. I was inspired for the colors of this card by a picture that a friend posted on Facebook the other day of a bouquet of flowers she had received that had some gorgeous orange flowers in it.
Supplies used:
Paper: Basic Grey, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango
Stamps: Word Play
Punches: Blossom, 7/8" Scallop Circle
Embellishments: Old Olive Striped Organdy ribbon, Brights Designer buttons, Basic Rhinestone Jewels

Thanks for stopping by! Are you a clean and simple card maker, or do you prefer many layers and details? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. After you comment, be sure to hop on over to Pamela's blog and then finish the circle!

    1. Thanks, Dawn. I'm making some graduation announcements right now that have BB CS on an angle like that, so it was fresh on my mind!
