It's a fun-fold, Believe You Can card for our July Paper Crew Blog Hop!

Ahoy friends, and welcome aboard the Paper Crew July Blog! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who have come together online to create cards, scrapbook pages and other craft projects. We hope these samples will inspire you to also create fun projects, using amazing Stampin' Up! products.

This month we are sharing projects using a floral theme from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. You may be just starting your hop here or coming from a previous blog. Either way, you've come to the right spot. Please enjoy your favourite beverage and maybe a snack or two while you read our blogs. At the end of this blog, you will find a list of all participants that will help you move along. My choice is Believe You Can.

It is a Hostess Stamp Set, so it is at the back of the Annual Catalogue.  This means that you would need $200 in sales either by placing a $200 order or having a workshop for $200 before you can order this. The reason I chose this Stamp Set, is that I usually don't get the Hostess Stamp Sets, so I decided that I would start this year off by getting a hostess stamp set. There are four to choose from, I liked the sentiments in this one.  I am actually featuring three cards this month.  Two of my cards are using the Diagonal Gate Fold Technique.  They all are using the Magnolia Lanes Designer Series Paper.  The first Diagonal Gate Fold Card is the smaller one, I first saw this one in a video, when I made it I thought that is rather small. I went looking for more videos and saw another one, and it was for the bigger one. The last card was to more or less be a different card to showcase that sentiment.  I fuzzy cut the sentiment as I don't have the Stitched Nested Labels Dies yet.  These could be brought separately or as part of a bundle with the Free As a Bird Stamp Set. The Card stocks I used were Whisper White, Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, and Early Espresso.  I also used Memento ink and Early Espresso ink.  Last but not least I used Neutrals and Subtles Stampin' Write Markers.

Hope you like it. All things you should put on your wishlist to purchase soon! Like really soon!
