June 2020 Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Hello stamping friends! Today, I am SO excited to share my card with you for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are an awesome group of stampers from all over the world who come together on the second Wednesday of every month to share some creative inspiration and smiles from around the globe. If this is the first time you are visiting my blog, I’m Anne Marie Hile from San Antonio, TX and I am so happy that you are visiting today. Welcome! 
Our theme for this hop is New Catalog Inspiration. I love this time in the Stampin’ Up!® year. The new Annual Catalog just launched and there are SO many awesome new products to create with. This week, I’ve been having some fun with the Field of Flowers Bundle. One of my favorite things to do to get acquainted with a new stamp set is to CASE the catalog. I usually start out by recreating the projects in the catalog and eventually end up changing them up a bit with my own spin on the details. I posted a few other projects using this bundle over on my Instagram. Check them out HERE
I created the background by randomly stamping and heat embossing the floral image in Versamark Ink and Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It really adds a lot of shine, in person. I fussy cut the Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody flowers and popped the up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The little Purple Posy flowers were stamped and punched using the coordinating Confetti Flowers Border Punch. I adhered them with a little liquid glue. I’ve listed measurements and details below along with a supply list at the end of this post.
