Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Favorite Designer Series Paper

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  This month we are celebrating our favorite designer series paper!

Image may contain: text

My favorite is the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper!  I love the sides that have all of the tiny prints.  I'm not sure that the word love is strong enough!  Sometimes retirement can be hard!  I'll hate to see this paper go.  Here is my card for today.

Tutti Frutti Flowers with Bouquet Bunch  Jo Anne Hewins

I've paired my favorite paper with my favorite framelit, the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. The card base is Crumb Cake and measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.

The Crumb Cake stripe paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4.

The stems and leaves for this card are cut from the Lemon Lime Twist squares paper.  I did add some extra leaves out beyond the flowers.  The flowers and centers are all cut from the paper from this pack.  Colors are Calypso Coral, Night of Navy, Fresh Fig, and Peekaboo Peach.  Don't they all look great together.  The larger centers are made using the 1/2" circle punch.  The small centers are punched with the Holly Berry Builder punch.

This card is filled with my favorites.  I'm am beyond happy to find out that the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon will be in the new annual catalog!  See how perfectly it brings this card together.

The word friend for the tag is stamped in Night of Navy on a Whisper White scrap.  Friend is from the Waterfront stamp set.  Punch with the 3/4" circle punch.  Adhere to a Lemon Lime Twist base made using the 1 inch circle punch.  Using the 1/16th handheld punch, make a hole at the top of the tag.  Attach the tag with Linen Thread.  That's another favorite of mine!

The inside of the card has a sentiment from Waterfront.  Add a few more flowers to the inside.  So cute!

There is very little actual stamping on this project, but sometimes that's all right.  Cutting these flowers was easy, but it did take a little time.  I cut several different flowers at one time to help with this.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll complete the hop.  Most of our designer paper will be retiring.  You'll want to see all the ideas to use it up.  New paper is coming!
