Great Family Occassions Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Stampin' Pretty Pals Blog Hop!  This month our Design Team's theme is "Great Family Occasions".  We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them!  Don't forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you.  At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you "hop" along from Pal to Pal.

With our theme of family occasions,  I decided to create a Mother's Day card using one of my favorite stamp sets from the January - June 2021 Catalog: the retiring Pretty Perennials Bundle.
Of course, I couldn't help but showcase some of the new 2021-2023 In Colors: Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent.

I paired my flowers with the retiring gold embossed piece of DSP from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and added die cut accents from the Floral Heart Dies. 
I love, love the banner die in the Floral Heart Dies.  After die cutting my Mother's Day sentiment with it, I snipped off the ends to create a smaller curved and stitched sentiment for my focal area.
And of course a matching envelopes is always a fun thing to add to your crafty project!  :)

A bow from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and a little dragonfly from the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle with a few Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels add the final touch to my Mother's Day project.

More inspiration awaits!  Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month's Design Team.  My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they've created!  Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is "2021-2023 New In Colors" when your Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don't miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your crafty space.
