Pals August 2016 Blog Hop – Cut it Out



Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! cutting tools. There are so many wonderful punches, framelits and edgelits available that help make papercrafting more detailed and fun! We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and 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.

Stampin Up Pals Blog Hop - Michelle Gleeson May Flowers Framelits Stampinup

This color combination of Smoky Slate, Elegant Eggplant, and Old Olive is very striking together. The Irresistibly  Floral DSP is the  back drop or my flower. Using a Sponge Brayer I added Smoky Slate until I achieved the color depth I wanted. The May Flower Framelits made creating this beautiful flower a snap. I strongly recommend using the Precision Base Plate, Magnetic Platform, and Die Brush for these framelits. A few brush strokes of of the die brush makes the flower drop right out of the framelit.

I added a piece of retired Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon.
