SBTD September Blog Hop Leaves & Trees

Welcome to the SBTD September Blog Hop as we showcase projects with the theme of leaves and trees. You will be visiting with wonderful Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
At this time of year, when I think of leaves and trees, I am reminded of the beauty of Fall. So I decided to create a clean and simple Fall card using the Beautiful Autumn Bundle (item #155189) combined with the coordinating Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #153520) from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I love the warm Copper and Gold Foil images on the designer series paper that I used as my background for this card design. For the sentiment, I used one of the dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. 
Products Used:
Beautiful Autumn Bundle (item #155189)
Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #153520)
Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folders (item #153574)
Banners Pick A Punch (item #153608)
Early Espresso cardstock (item #119686)
Very Vanilla cardstock (item #101650)
3/16" Braided Linen Trim (item #147808)
Early Espresso Classic ink pad (item #147114)
Mint Macaron Classic ink pad (item #147106)
Cajun Craze Classic ink pad (item #147085)
Copper Foil Sheets (item #142020)
Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Gold Embossing Powder (item #109129)
Measurements:
Early Espresso cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(scored at 4 1/4")
Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Early Espresso strip - 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" 
(embossed with the small trio dots embossing folder from the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folders)
Copper Foil strip - 1/2" x 4 1/4" 
(ends flagged using the Banners Pick A Punch)
Very Vanilla cardstock for sentiment label and stamped images
This card design is very simple to assemble with minimal stamping. The leaves and acorn images from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set, were stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso Classic ink pads and punched out using the coordinating punches from the Autumn Punch Pack (you can save 10% when you order these products as a bundle). The sentiment was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder to coordinate with the background design and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The small bow was tied with the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim to add a little texture to the design. For a touch of shimmer, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped leaves and acorn images. I love the classic elegance of this card design and I think it would be perfect for Thanksgiving or just a special card to let someone know how much you appreciate them in your life. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore this wonderful theme to create your own beautiful projects, no matter what the season. There are so many options to explore in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Monthly Blog Hop September 2020


Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop for September 2020. This is my last time hopping with this wonderful group of talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as our year comes to an end for this amazing training program. I have learned so much from Kylie and Bruno as well as the many talented people who have shared their knowledge and creativity over the past year. I hope that you will enjoy the projects we have to share during our blog hop.
 Today I decided to share a card design that uses the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set (item #153322) and give it a Halloween twist. I paired it with the beautiful Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (item #153517) and 1 1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item #153550) and had my gnome friend dress up as a wizard for trick or treating. To coordinate with the spiders in the background, I added the spider web die cut from Basic Black Glitter Paper (item #153518) using the Peek A Hoot Dies (item #153573) for a touch of sparkle. These amazing products can be found in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog and I love how you can mix and match them to create fun designs for a variety of occasions. 
 Products Used:
Gnome For The Holidays stamp set (item #153322)
Little Treats stamp set (item #153376)
Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (item #153517)
Peek A Hoot Dies (item #153573)
Layering Ovals Dies (item #151771)
Basic Black Glitter Paper (item #153518)
1 1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item #153550)
Iridescent Pearls (item #153549)
Stampin' Blends Markers
 Measurements:
Pretty Peacock cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(scored at 4 1/4")
Magic In This Night DSP layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Pretty Peacock cardstock for scalloped oval die cuts
Whisper White cardstock for gnome stamped image 
and oval die cut
Metallic Mesh Ribbon approx 5 1/2"
The gnome image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends Markers. I chose colors that would give the gnome the appearance of being a wizard using Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate and added Clear Wink of Stella to add a touch of shimmer. I sponged the background oval using Sponge Daubers and a combination of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy Classic inks to create a eerie night sky. I added the die cut spider web to the top of the layered ovals with adhesive and used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to add the gnome to the oval so that it overlaps the spider web. The sentiment was heat embossed with White embossing powder onto Basic Black cardstock and die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies. I love how the Metallic Mesh Ribbon adds texture to the card design without being bulky. This was so much fun taking what would normally be considered a Christmas stamp set and using it for an alternative holiday. I can't wait to see what other alternative occasions I can use this stamp set for.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that you have enjoyed my card design and I hope that it inspires you to get creative and explore new opportunities with your own projects.

Colour Combo September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo September Blog Hop as we showcase projects with this month's color theme of Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as the share their ideas and projects to inspire you.
 Today I decided to create my card using a stamp set that I had never tried before. I used the To A Wild Rose stamp set (item #149452) with the coordinating Wild Roses Dies (item #149547) from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog to create this soft and pretty floral design. I love the way this color combination works together and enjoyed being able to color the rose and leaves with Stampin' Blends Markers to create the focal images. The background features sponging with Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy Classic ink pads using Stamping Sponges and then I stamped the leaves from the To A Wild Rose stamp set to create a textured background.
 Products Used:
To A Wild Rose stamp set (item #149452)
Wild Rose Dies (item #149547)
Basic Rhinestones (item #144220)
Night Of Navy cardstock (item #100857)
Flirty Flamingo cardstock (item #141416)
Whisper White cardstock (item #100730)
Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154884)
Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154885)
Night of Navy Classic Ink Pad (item #147110)
Granny Apple Green Classic Ink Pad (item #147095)
Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink Pad (item #147052)
Stamping Sponges (item #141337)
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
 Measurements:
Night of Navy cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(scored at 4 1/4")
Flirty Flamingo cardstock layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White cardstock layer - 5" x 3 3/4"
Whisper White cardstock for stamping images and die cut sentiment label
 I used Flirty Flamingo Classic ink to stamp the floral image, Granny Apple Green Classic ink to stamp the leaves and Night of Navy Classic ink to stamp the sentiment. You may notice that the sentiment didn't stamp solidly across the tops of the "ll"s but I liked how it gave a kind of Ombre look to the sentiment. To color the images, I used a combination of the light and dark colors of each combination of the Stampin' Blends Markers. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the images to add a touch of sparkle.  I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to add the sentiment label to the card front and used a combination of adhesive and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the rose and leaves to the card front. For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestones to the center of the rose and to the sentiment label. This card design could be used for a variety of occasions just by changing the sentiment. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design inspires you to explore creating with this wonderful color combination. Stampin' Up!'s coordinating products make it easy and stress free to combine colors to create your projects.

Ink. Stamp. Share. September Special Blog Hop Stampers Choice

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. September Special Blog Hop as we share the projects we are currently working on. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their amazing projects and ideas to inspire you. 
 With the cooler weather here in Colorado, I have been in the mood to create Christmas cards. My card design features the returning favorite, Merry Moose Bundle (item #153015) paired with the new Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (item #153576) from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I love the detail of this new embossing folder and it adds wonderful texture to the background of this design. 
 Products Used:
Merry Moose Bundle (item #153015)
Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (item #153576)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
3/16" Braided Linen Trim (item #147808)
Stampin' Blends Markers
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (item #141897)
Measurements:
Early Espresso cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" 
(scored at 4 1/4")
Pear Pizzazz cardstock Layer 1 - 5 1/4" x 4"
Shaded Spruce cardstock Layer 2 - 5" x 3 3/4" 
(embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder)
Very Vanilla cardstock - label die cut and for stamped images
Early Espresso cardstock - large label die cut
Braided Linen Trim - Approx. 6"
This card design is simple to create with lots of layers and texture to create interest. The Shaded Spruce cardstock layer was embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder and I added Clear Wink of Stella to the raised trees for a touch of sparkle to help them stand out. The labels were die cut with the dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the sentiment from the Merry Moose stamp set was heat embossed onto the Very Vanilla cardstock layer to step up the design. The moose and raccoon images were stamped with Early Espresso Classic ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I colored them both with Stampin' Blends Markers. I punched out the moose image with the Moose punch and fussy cut the raccoon image. I added the Braided Trim around the center of the Shaded Spruce cardstock layer and added the sentiment labels over the center with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the moose and raccoon images to the labels with Stampin' Seal Adhesive and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the legs and log to the card front. This design would be perfect for a masculine Christmas card or other occasion just by changing the sentiment. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore creating your own Christmas cards for friends and family with the wonderful products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.
