Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Hot Air Balloon Card

I had a hard time choosing which stamp set to feature for Stamp of the Month Club this month. Each stamp set I chose from the Mini Catalog, the dies ended up on backorder! So I went back to the Annual Catalog and decided to highlight one of my new favorites that hasn't gotten enough love yet -- Above the Clouds! This hot air balloon stamp set has a coordinating punch! The card designs in this month's kit are sure to lift you up and have you thinking spring!

The first card design I CASEd right from the Annual Catalog on page 89. I love the idea of stamping the words around the circle, which I embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. Here is the original card.

Stampin' Creative Blog Hop: Pleased as Punch Tag Card

Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop! Currently you are visiting Julie Davison from Champaign, Illinois in the United States. This month's theme is "CASE Shelli". We are CASEing projects on Stampin' Up! Co-Founder Shelli Gardner's blog. What does CASE mean? Essentially, CASE means to "copy". You'll hear different definitions for the acronym, but my favorite is Copy And Selectively Edit. I hope our projects inspire you to CASE -- not only from us or from Shelli, but especially from the Stampin' Up! catalogs. There are hundreds of projects at your fingertips!
Here is my project. I used the new Pleased as Punch Designer Paper that is part of the Coordination Product Release. This designer paper coordinates with several of our new punches: the Small Blossom Punch (a Level 2 Sale-a-Bration gift choice), Tulip Builder Punch, Heart Punch Pack, and Umbrella Punch.
Here's the card from Shelli's blog that inspired me. Shelli shared this project at On Stage in November 2019.
You can see that I was inspired by the card layout and changed the designer paper and colors, but still used a similar flower theme. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

That's all from me today! Thank you for visiting! For now, it's time to carry on with the blog hop and see what other amazing projects my Stampin' friends from around the world have created for you!

Country Club Golf Father's Day Card

At On Stage in November, all attendees received the Country Club Designer Paper as a free gift. This new paper is perfect for masculine cards with all of the handsome plaid patterns. Since my husband plays golf, I couldn't resist the Clubhouse bundle and coordinating accessories! I created this card using the colors in this week's Global Design Project Challenge.
