Monthly Stamp Group Projects

Here are the projects we did this past week in my monthly stamp group at the farm.  When I saw Audrey Coons "light bulb" card I knew I had to case it.  I did a few simple things different. as to try and make it simply for a group to stamp.  Instead of watercoloring the yellow for the bulb I used the one of the leaf stamps from the new set Bunch of Blossoms.  I also used the speckle stamp from Gorgeous Grunge,  The little Fox Hershey tent came from Brenda Quintana's Blog were you can always find fun Hershey Kiss idea's.
This fun little box holds a candy bar and was Tammy's gift for hostessing this month along with a little bag of dsp and paper and other goodies.
Here is what it looks like on the inside.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog today and as always have a great day!

Stampin' Addicts New In Color Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts In Color Blog Hop.  This hop begins June 10 and runs through June 12 we have added permalinks so if you ever want to hop again you will be able to do so.  I am so excited about these new incolors!  We have some really fun ideas lined up showcasing the colors so I hope you will hop all the way through.  There are 5 stops on the hop so it shouldn't take that long to view.  If you are following the hop in order then you have just arrived from Tanya's Blog where she showcased the new In Color Emerald Envy.  Didn't she do a wonderful job showcasing that beautiful new green!  Now it is my turn to showcase the new In Color Flirty Flamingo so here we go...
I had so much fun creating with this new In Color.  Let's take a closer look at my projects.
The first card I created I really wanted the color to "pop" so I backed it with Basic Black and I think that did the trick.  The saying I used for my card is from the new stamp set "Bunch of Blossoms" as is the flower I stamped and punched out with the "Blossom Builder" punch that goes with the stamp set.  You can bundle it and save 10%!  I also used some of the Flirty Flamingo DSP from the In Color DSP Stack.
My second project is a very simple one layer card.  Sometimes it's nice to just sit and just stamp and see what you come up with and not worry about layering.  Again the saying is from the "Bunch of Blossoms" stamp set.  The flower stamp I used is from the "Fresh Fruit" stamp set.
Oh!  This last project was sooo fun to make.  It's a 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" puzzle that you can send in the mail.  I used the stamp set "Fresh Fruit" for all of the puzzle pieces.   My tag was made using the stamp set "Thoughtful Banners".   I used our gorgeous new ribbon to make a pretty bow and then punch out 3 tags with the new "Classic Label" punch.  Adding one in our Glimmer Silver Paper helped to draw attention to the tag.   I also added a few small rhinestones to the puzzle itself to brighten it a bit.  I altered the boarder around the puzzle with more of the DSP Stack and made a matching envelope.   I hope you have enjoyed my projects I had to share with you and now it's time to hop over to Sara's Blog and see all the beautiful projects that she has made for us using the new In Color Peakaboo Peach.  Can't wait Sara!  Happy "Hopping" everyone!
