Pals Blog Hop July 2012 - Summer Sunshine

It's time for some fun in the sun with the Pals! Glad you could join us for the Pals Summer Sunshine Blog Hop! You've probably hopped over from Nicole Watt at Impressions By Nicole, I'm stop number 15 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in!

I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for summer themed Stampin' Up! projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track
Here is mine below:
When thinking of summer sunshine, I think DSP Summer Smooches since it has all the bright summer colors, so I started with that and ended up with this card.

Grabbed my stamp set: Build a Blossom to create this full big flower and leaves along with the matching punch: Blossom Petals Builder. Here is a side view to see how the Stampin Dimensionals were used in between the layers to pop up the look.

Here is a close up picture of the front view showing off the colors of Real Red, Old Olive for the leaves, Daffodil Delight for the center and you can see one of the new ribbons: 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain in Daffodil Delight. Island Indigo cardstock was used under it.

Added a scallop border using the Adorning Accents Edgelits along with matching embossing Accents Folder and for the sentiment, used the Modern Label and Word Window Punch with the stamp set: Teeeny Tiny Wishes.

For the 2 little flowers on the right hand side on the bottom, the Boho punch was very handy along with punching 2 circles from the Owl punch for the center. 

After looking at it over, I'm now thinking it could use some basic pearls, but at the same time not sure if it would be over doing it. Let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Nicole Picadura at Scraps & Stamps, stop number 16 on the Pals Summer Sunshine Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!
