Pals September 2020 Blog Hop

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.

For the focal point of my card is a sentiment found in the Beautiful Autumn Stamp set. My heart is truly thankful for all the wonderful customers and friends Stampin’ Up has brought my way. Each of you are special and my life is so much richer because you are a part of it. The highlight of each month is creating little projects to share and give away. I enjoy helping each one to learn new techniques, a variety of ways to fold a card, sweet little treat pouches and custom packaging for giving away that special gift. I’d love the opportunity to be your demonstrator if you don’t have someone you are working with at the present time.

GDP#235 Easter and Iris Fold Baby Card

My niece is expecting her second son any day now. I’ve had iris folding on my mind today so I thought I’d play around with the technique and create a sweet baby card to send out this week. Isn’t the bunny just the cutest? He’d make a great Easter card also. I think I’ll submit it to the Global Design Project Blog for this weeks GDP#235 challenge. If you haven’t done an Iris Fold card before here are the instructions for this card and the pattern. Hope you will give the technique and the GDP#235 a try.

Card Recipe:
Elementary Elegance (125122 retired), Welcome Easter (151559)
Whisper White (100730), Mint Macaron (138337), Subtles DSP (146966 retired)
Ink: Mint Macaron (147106)
Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (151474), Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (152725), Ornate Layers Dies 152726), Ornate Borders Dies (152724), Stitched So Sweetly Dies (151690), Dimensionals (104430)

Happy stamping,
