Jar of Flowers for #GDP092

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP092.  This week we are CASEing the oh-so talented Steffi Helmschrott.  Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.
 
Here is the project this week that you can CASE. To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with this week.
I took my CASEing inspiration from the Jar of Love Stamp Set and the flowers from this card.  I also used the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack.  This is a new product from Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog and it makes creating a snap!  The colors in each card pack are so vibrant and rich, I love them :)

I stamped a few flowers in Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride over the Old Olive stems in the jar.  Then I just added some pearls to the flower centers and some random Glitter Enamel Dots.  They are super cool embellishments to add some bling for any project.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for this card.

Thailand Achievers June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for June 2017. This month our theme is "Our Annual Catalog Favorites".  The new Annual Catalog is incredible!  We want to give you some more ideas on how you can make the most of all your wonderful new products or to show you how to use ones that you haven't purchased as yet.
 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity .
I used two of my favorite colors on this #10 size Tea Party Invitation.  One of the first colors I bought from Stampin' Up! was Rich Razzleberry.  I used it on every card I made and mixed it with every other color.  I was in love with Rich Razzleberry!
Today I am mixing it with another color I am totally loving called Tranquil Tide.  This is one of the newest In Colors in the Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up!  And just like Rich Razzleberry I want to use it on every one of my cards now :)
When you get your new catalog, you page through it about a hundred times while making your list and checking it twice, or thrice!  One of my must have new items was the Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You can color it in any way you want.  It comes with 6 designs and when I saw the teapots, I knew exactly what I was going to use them for. 
Check out the "Sip & See" Tea Party invitation I created.  It was such a fun idea and worked out wonderfully.

Birthday Delivery for #tttc002

Today I played along with the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  This is the second week of this brand new challenge so make sure to head over and play along with the Tic Tac Toe challenge! 
For this weeks challenge, the board was created by Design Team member Corinne Blake.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board above, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged you to create! 
I used Yellow, Gray, and Birthday, with a little of the wood and embossing thrown in.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Birthday Delivery.  I also used the wood grain coffee cup stamp from the Coffee CafĂ© for the center of the layered square background.

As a background addition I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on Smoky Slate card stock and layered it over So Saffron and Basic Gray.
I used a variety of punches to layer behind the sentiment.  First, I punched out two of the Best Badge shapes in Basic Gray and layered them over each other.  Then, I punched out the Pretty Label shape in So Saffron and die cut the sentiment using the Layering Ovals Framelits.
 
Thanks for stopping by today, here are all of the items I used for this card:
