It’s a Pattern Party!

Stampin Up Pals Blog Hop Pattern Party Floral Boutique Floral Phrases Wedding Anniversary Ideas - The Jurassic Crafter stampinupWho doesn’t love a party? And a pattern party, at that!!

Stripes, Florals, Plaids, Polka Dots, lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my! Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop Pattern Party for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.

Let’s get this party started!

This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is that they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and, most of all, that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Floral Boutique Suite

One of my favorite color combinations is Night of Navy and Whisper White – probably because I love the contrast. It’s softer than black and white and yet it still makes a statement.  And my favorite product suite in the catalog is Floral Boutique, hands down! As an example of the beauty of Stampin’ Up! coordination, check out all the fabulous products in the suite (clicking on the image below will take you to my online store):

I know, mind blown, right? You can see why I couldn’t help myself!

For my blog hop project I decided to do a wedding/anniversary card. (Thanks to Dawn Olchefske for the inspiration). The detailed floral thinlits are the only product I didn’t use because I wanted to streamline the process as much as possible. I made multiples of this card for an upcoming event, one that I will elaborate on in the future. Interest piqued? 😉

Normally I don’t do much sponging when I’m creating, but to me this card just cried out for some. I simply sponged some Night of Navy around the edges of the smaller stamped image because I didn’t want to overwhelm my design.
