July 2021 Casually Crafting Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 2021 Casually Crafting Blog Hop! We are Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world who love to create cards ideal for the beginner or casual crafter. This month we’re taking our inspiration from the following card sketch.

I love sketches because they help me think about different ways to use my supplies than I might other tend to use them. In this case, when I saw the sketch I immediately thought of the Ombre Specialty Paper. I wanted a pretty full background, so I chose a coordinating sheet from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.

My pieces of the ombré paper are 1-3/4” wide. The largest piece is 3-1/8” tall and the other three are 3/8” tall.

I used the Dragonflies Punch with the Rose & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. The sentiment is from the Days to Remember Stamp Set and stamped in Night of Navy ink. I finished off the card with Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.

I hope you enjoyed the project I shared today! Please continue hopping and finding more inspiration by selecting the next link below. If you received this by email, please select the title at the top to visit my website and find the blog hop list.
