Nature's Greetings for #GDP138

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP138.  This week is a fabulous sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch so you can play along too:
I took some inspiration from my one of the design team members and my friend Stesha Bloodhart.  Make sure to check out her creation in the team design line up.  
I used the new design series paper called Nature's Poem for the background.  Then I punched some leaves in vellum and Grapefruit Grove.  The Nature's Roots Framelits Dies were the perfect touch to make the embossed and dies cut leaf in Soft Suede.  
The sentiment comes from a brand new stamp set call Itty Bitty Greetings that will be available in the upcoming annual catalog on June 1 from Stampin' Up!  The fonts on this stamp set are pretty awesome.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Here are all of the items I used for this card.

Alaska Achievers May Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our May Alaskan Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme in May is the Share What You Love Bundle.
The colors for this card are Grapefruit Grove,  Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry.  I used a bunch of items from the Share What You Love Bundle that is available now on early release from Stampin' Up!  I stamped the sentiment and sentiment background from the Love What You Do stamp set, then die cut it using the layering ovals framelits.  I layered it over the beautiful pearlized design series paper from the Share What You Love 12 x 12 paper stack. 
The background is embossed using the Petal Burst Folder.  I trimmed the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch and the doily frame comes from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut design paper, both new items in the upcoming annual catalog.  I added some Artisan Pearls and a little bow as finishing touches.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Lovely Floral Varied Vases for #GDP137

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP137.  This week's color challenge is a cheery mix of Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  Here is the color trio so you can play along too:
I used the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and gently tapped my Whisper White craft ink pad across the piece of cardstock with the embossing on it to give it a little more dimension.  I added some pretty floral washi tape around the edge of the flower and some fun rhinestones for added bling.
The sentiment comes from the stamp set called Varied Vases that will be available in the upcoming annual Stampin' Up! catalog in June.  This stamp set was designed by my upline and stamping friend Mary Fish in honor of when she achieved her one million dollars in sales.  It is punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.
