July Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

I can't believe it is already July. Half of this year is already over. Since it is a new month it is also time for a Blog Hop with the Stylin' Stampin' Squad. This month we are having a birthday bash as Stampin' Up! is celebrating their 25th Birthday. 

So I kind of had a hard time trying to figure out something birthday related when it hit me that all birthday cards don't have to be balloons and cakes so I decided to make a little ensemble with a card and gift. I guess I will be ready for the next birthday party!
 With the release of the new catalog last month, I have been in awe of all the new items so I am slowly growing my collection with new stamp sets and accessories. One of those new stamp sets is Flower Shop. I just adore all the flowers in this set. I had stopped buying so many flower sets a while back and now I realize that most of my flower sets are now retired or outdated and this new set is so refreshing.

I paired the set with some washi tape, something I had been wanting to use on well, anything. I had gotten the Epic Day Washi Tape but hadn't gotten around to even opening the package until this weekend. I love it. It is so easy to use and forgiving when you make a mistake too. The colors Calypso Coral, Smokey Slate, and Basic Gray are so beautiful together too.

Items Used:
Flower Shop Stamp Set, Calypso Coral & Smokey Slate Stampin' Write Markers,  Epic Day Washi Tape, Whisper White,Calypso Coral & Smokey Slate Card Stock.

To go along with my card a made a cute little package to put some some candy in or maybe some cash. I used an old SU! button container and some Epic Day Washi Tape, the Fun Flowers Bigz Die, and a large Pearl. I came together rather quickly and is super cute.

Ok, who wants to invite me to their party so they can get a super cute card and gift?

Items Used:
Epic Day Washi Tape, Fun Flowers Die, Large Pearl, Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, and Smokey Slate Card Stock.
