Floral Embroidery Hoop - Stampin' Up! Crafting with You

   One of the new bundles in the 2023-2024 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog is the Crafting with You bundle and I love the different craft/hobby images in the stamp set but I think the dies are even better.  Not only do you have dies that match the images you have extras like thread spools, a ruler, buttons and a paper trimmer but you have an embroidery hoop!  Think of all the small images that you can highlight within this hoop!!  Letters!  Little animals! Sentiments!  It's such a cool little die and I'm sure this won't be the last time you see it on one of my cards!

  I used the gorgeous color combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches to make today's card.  Pool Party, Night of Navy & Flirty Flamingo. 

  I started with a Pool Party base, then a layer of Basic White embossed with the retired Tufted embossing folder.  Next I cut out the hoop shape in some retired wood grain paper called Natural Touch Specialty paper but any wood grain paper would work or you could color your own with Blends for a custom look.  I backed the hoop with a Basic White circle with a little bit of Pool Party ink blended on with a blending brush.

  I colored the flower image with markers in the challenge colors and stamped it on Basic White and cut it out and popped it with dimensionals on the hoop.  The whole hoop is adhered with more dimensionals to the card front.

  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy with a Flirty Flamingo hearts (stamped off once) and then punched with a 1" circle punch.  A tiny Night of Navy baker's twine bow is the finishing touch for this CAS card.

  Check out the new Crafting with You Bundle as well as all the other new products just released by Stampin' Up! in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
