Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Honey Bee Bundle Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

Researching how long I’ve been a part of the Pals Blog Hop, I discovered that I’ve been doing this for 8 years! Wow, it’s gone by so fast. I’ve just loved hopping along every month, it’s really a highlight of the month for me!

For this month my “critter” card has birds, bees and butterflies ~ three adorable critters! They all seem to belong together, don’t they? 🙂 They are sitting on a watercolored background which has a light wash of Pretty Peacock ink.

Honey Bee Bundle Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The birds were simply fussy cut out of a piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and adhered directly onto the watercolored piece. Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon was colored with a Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend and tied around in a bow. The bee hive was stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink – this color goes beautifully with Pretty Peacock. A piece of White Vellum was laid over the bee hive to give it a softer look.

The bee was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and colored just a bit with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. A Gold Foil piece of honeycomb was placed behind the hive. The Pretty Peacock butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty Dies. The sweet little “hello” sentiment was heat embossed with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock. And to finish the card off, a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones were added.
