Pals Blog Hop 10 Year Anniversary

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals.

Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member.  I’m participating!!

You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Welcome Easter Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

These cute critters from the Welcome Easter Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!, part of the 2020 Mini Catalog, are so much fun to color!  I created 3 cards, each with a different image from the stamp set!  I will be sharing the other two cards in the next few days.  Check back to see the chick and the sheep!  They are adorable!

Welcome Easter Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock  to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Crop a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock using a die-cutting and embossing machine and one of the Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle dies. Cut to 2 in wide and adhere to the card base as shown. 

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece Whisper White Cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5.  Adhere to a 3 13/16 x 5 1/16 piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock with Snail Adhesive. Zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside the 3D Subtle Embossing Folder. 

Use the Medium Daisy Punch to crop notches 3/4″ in from the left, on both top and bottom of the embossed pieces.  Double wrap with Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine that has been separated to two threads, securing with a bow. 

Add elements of Blushing Bride Cardstock and 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to the upper left corner as shown. 

Cut a 3/8 x 2 3/16 piece of Blushing Bride 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and adhere it to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that has been cropped with the largest Stitched So Sweetly label die. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as shown. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Stamp the bunny in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Color with the following Stampin’ Blends:  Light & Dark Smoky Slate, Light & Dark Flirty Flamingo, Color Lifter. Snip with Paper Snips and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Color a Pearl Basic Jewel with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend. Adhere to the bow as shown.

    I love that stamp set. It can be used for many different occasions. You did a beautiful job of coloring. I have been resisting purchasing the blends but I am seeing so many great ideas with wonderful colors (so much better then with the pens) that I might have to break down & give it a try. Great Job!!
