Hello stampers crafters and friends and welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends blog hop.  The August hop theme is all about me so I am going to share with you some of my favorite stamp sets, colors and Designer series Paper that i feel represent me.  This month I created two different cards for the blog hop.  Yes, that’s right you read that correctly two cards instead of just one.   Here’s the first card that I created for this month’s hop.

Crafting Forever stamp set, Lots of Love Stamp Set, Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, Whole lot of Love Designer Series Paper, Metallic Sequins, Layering Ovals framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, 2017-2019 InColors, Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, Tranquil Tide Cardstock, Sending Love Card, Do Something Creative Everyday Card, Encouragement Card, Basic Black Archival Ink Pad, Daffodil Delight Classic Ink, Tangerine Tango Classic Ink, Stampin’ Up!, #rickadkins, #rckinsmonstudio

Crafting Forever:

This card features the Crafting Forever stamp set in the Annual catalog and I have been in love with this stamp set since I saw it in April at OnStage.  For those of you wondering what OnStage is well it’s a Stampin’ Up! event for demonstrators were we get to go see the new products coming out and play with them, and we can even order some of them to play with at home before anyone else.  This stamp set is also this year’s Angel Policy Set (the Angel Policy basically says that in order to see your handmade items that feature Stampin’ Up! products it must have the ©Stampin’ Up! symbol on the back in a nutshell.)  This set features some wonderful crafting imagery as well as great sentiments.  I paired it with some of my favorite designer series paper the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.  This pack of paper features both vintage and bold bright images perfect for any project.

Carfting Forever Card

The colors I picked for this card are Pumpkin Pie Lemon Lime Twist Whisper White and Basic Black, to showcase the colors in the Designer Series Paper and I just love orange.  It’s one of my favorite colors.   And Lemon Lime Twist is one of my favorite InColors this year.  The cup of brushes I used to represent my love for painting and my degree in art.  I just love the sentiment and have used this as a motto for many years now.   I truly believe that if you create something everyday your life will be so much more worthwhile.

Lots of Love:

I picked this card to go along with my love of the color orange and I just love this stamp set and paper.   I used the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper because it features such bold and modern designs.  This one pack of paper can be used for anyone, it has both bold striking designs as well as designs that feature more soft images, and it has flowers on some how could you go wrong.   For the card base I used the other piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock that was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.   And matted the designer series paper on a piece of Tranquil Tide Cardstock cut 1/8″ larger then the 5 1/4 x 4 DSP.   To stamp the sentiment I inked the entire stamp up in Daffodil delight and used a sponge dauber to put Tangerine Tango ink on the outside of the image creating the halo effect (and since I am such an angel this fit perfectly to represent me!  LOL!)  To finish off this card I added a couple of black metallic sequins around the sentiment.
