Stampin Friends All About Flowers and Moms Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends April Blog Hop.  This month our theme is All About Flowers and Moms.  This theme has so many possibilities and is sure to bring you inspiration.   If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from the blog of Kim Lamos.  Be sure to read through my blog post, comment below and continue along to the blog of Anne Marie Hile. If you happen to get lost along the way, you can find a list of the Blog Hoppers at the end of each blog.  

Let's get right to my projects created for this month's hop. All products used are from Stampin' Up! © 

I used the Best Dressed Suite from the Stampin' Up! Jan - June 2020 Mini Catalog.
Happy Mother's Day Card - I used Blushing Bride, Lovely Lipstick, and Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the saying from the Dressed to Impress set using Lovely Lipstick Ink.  The die cuts are from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I fussy-cut the perfume bottle images from the Best Dressed DSP. 

I created this card to look like a store front window.  I used Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, and Whisper White Cardstock.  I embossed the Whisper White strips with Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. All images were fussy-cut from the Best Dressed DSP. (Yes I love to fussy-cut!)

I made this adorable purse using the All Dressed Up Dies.  I cut the purse from Lovely Lipstick Cardstock, and 2 pieces for the front and back panels from Best Dressed DSP.  The saying is from the Dressed to Impress set, stamped onto Whisper White using Lovely Lipstick Ink, and punched using the Pretty Label punch.  I fussy cut 2 strips and a purse image from DSP and adhered these to the front. I couldn't resist to add a Best Dressed Tassel.
