June 2021 - Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Hello stamping friends! Today, I am SO excited to share my projects 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. You will definitely want to visit everyone to see their amazing projects. We hope you enjoy hopping along with us this month! 

Our theme for the month is “Step it Up!” and it’s going to be fun! We are focusing on sharing projects for ALL crafting styles. Whether you are a Beginner Stamper, a more Casual Stamper or an Avid Stamper, we have you covered this month with projects to inspire your creativity. 

***All of the supplies I used to create these cards are listed at the end of this post. 
Beginner Card: It’s all about the stamps, ink and paper, y’all! You do NOT have to have a ton of product to get started stamping. In this case, I simply used cardstock, ink and one set of Stampin’ Blends to create my card. 

Hot Tip: if you are going to use Basic White for a card base, invest in the Thick Basic White Cardstock. It’s super-sturdy and “made” for card bases. For this card I used the Plentiful Plants stamp set, Thick Basic White Cardstock, Garden Green Cardstock, Inks in Cinnamon Cider, Garden Green and Just Jade along with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to add some “shading” under the flower pots. You could totally skip this, but I love the subtle detail it adds. 

Casual Card: Let’s bring in a few accessories like the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper, Genial Gems, Paper Lattice and Linen Thread. I simply cut a little “fence” from the Paper Lattice and dressed it up with the Genial Gems. A simple accent that adds awesome detail. 

Here is a peek inside the card:  

Avid Card: If you are a fan of ALL the crafty things, buying the entire suite is a good idea! You get the Plentiful Plants stamps, Perfect Pants Dies, Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper and Paper Lattice. Add on the Linen Thread, Macrame 3D Embossing Folder and Genial Gems for more added texture and sparkle.  

 I added some Wink of Stella to the planter and some of the leaves for some shimmer. 
You can never go wrong when sparkle is involved!
