Stamper’s Dozen Celebrates 5 Years!!!

Happy Anniversary to my fellow Stamper’s Dozen Bloggers!

And, to you visitors… Welcome to this month’s installment of the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell in a small town at the very bottom of Illinois smack dab in the middle of the United States!

This month we are celebrating five years of inspiring projects! While I have only been a part of this fabulous group of Stampers for about a year, I am so excited to celebrate. Any excuse for a party really!

So, with that in mind… here is what I have come up with for you!!!

I decided to do a One Sheet Wonder. This is where you take one sheet of Designer Series Paper and you cut it up and use the various pieces on a bunch of cards.

Here is the template I used. It is a 6″ x 6″ template that was originally posted by Debbie Henderson (I think).

I decided to use the beautiful Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (#148554) in the Occasions catalog. In fact, most everything I used was from that Gingham Gala Suite which can be found on pages 34-35 in the new 2019 Occasions Catalog.

I stuck with just two colors – Highland Heather and Whisper White – for the ink and the cardstock.

Here I added a bit of the 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White. All the images and sentiments are from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (#148580).

Don’t recognize that purple ribbon? All I did was use a sponge dauber to color the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon (#148764) that is part of the suite.

Those little flowers are from the Gingham Gala Adhesive-backed Sequins (#148564) and of course, the butterflies are punched out using the new Butterfly Duet Punch (#148523).

I also used two different embossing folders for the backgrounds. The new Dot to Dot folder (#148533) in the Occasions catalog one and the Layered Leaves folder (#143704) from the Annual Catalog.

Well, that is all the celebrating I have for you today. Hop on over to see what everyone else is tempting you with this month!
