August Pals 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.

Have your heard the news!  Stampin' Up! is offering a limited edition stamp set and matching thinlit set in August.  It  is perfect for all types of paper crafters: the newbie or the "got to have it all" because it can be used for any season or any reason.  The stamp set offers great images and the perfect sentiments for both the outside and inside of the card.  The thinlits expand just add to your crafting options.  If you  are making plans for your Christmas cards, this is your answer.  Need a card for the man in your life, this is the one.  Perfect for every occasion!  

 Here is my project for today.  I used two of the photo prints from the Serene Scenery paper stack.  They are just beautiful. 

 The Hydrangea was stamped in Calypso Coral ink on the coordinating card stock for a tone on tone look.  The matching thinlit line up for the perfect cut.  Just use the arrows to line up and then cut on your Big Shot.  The stem and leaf were cut from Old Olive card stock.  Add one of the sentiments from the stamp set and you are done.  

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
