What's New at SU Blog Hop 2019 Holiday Catalog

Welcome to the What's New At SU Blog Hop as we showcase the amazing new products in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators as they share their projects to help inspire you ready for the holidays. We hope you will enjoy our creations this month.
 Today I am showcasing the new Merry Moose Bundle (item #153015) which features the Merry Moose Photopolymer stamp set (item #150494) and coordinating Moose Punch (item #150652). When you order both of these products as a bundle, you save 10%. I paired this bundle with the Woodland Embossing Folder (item #139673) to create the textured background and the Rooted in Nature Cling stamp set (item #148217) and coordinating Nature's Roots Dies (item #146341) to create the scenery.
 To create this card I started with one of my favorite new In Colors, Pretty Peacock, for the card base and I added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock to create a matte for the embossed Sahara Sand cardstock layer. I inked up the Woodland Embossing Folder with Soft Suede Classic ink and embossed it using the Big Shot to create the background. I love that the ink is transferred onto the raised trees to give them more definition. I added a strip of Pretty Peacock designer series paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper pack (item #149617) and I used the Banner Triple Punch (item #138292) to create the banner end. I adhered this to the embossed layer with Snail Adhesive. 
To create the focal image, I stamped the moose image from the Merry Moose stamp set with Early Espresso Classic ink onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock and punched it out using the Moose Punch. I die cut a Night of Navy circle using the large circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies (item #145372). I also die cut a Whisper White circle using the same circle die and then used one of the dies from the In The Woods Die set (item #147919) to create the snow landscape for the background. I attached this Whisper White piece to the bottom of the Night of Navy cardstock circle with Snail Adhesive. 
 The trees in the background were created using images from the Rooted In Nature stamp set (item #148217) stamped with Old Olive Classic ink onto Old Olive cardstock. I then die cut them using the coordinating dies from the Nature's Roots Die set (item #146341) and attached them to the focal circle along the snow horizon. Using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, I attached the moose to the circle towards the bottom. I attached the circle to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals on top of the designer series paper banner. 

To add the look of snow, I used the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (item #150691) from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog, to the snow background and the trees. This new puff paint is amazing and a little goes a long way. You just apply it with the tip where you want to have snow and then gently heat it with your Heat Tool and watch it puff up to look like snow. 
 The final step is the sentiment and I stamped the image using Night of Navy Classic ink onto a scrap of Sahara Sand cardstock and die cut it using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (item #149638) and sponged it with Soft Suede ink with a Sponge Dauber to distress it. Then I created the matte with a larger die from Night of Navy cardstock and layered them using Snail Adhesive. I attached it towards the bottom of card, centering it below the focal image, using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a little of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint along the top and bottom of the Sahara Sand label and heat set it create the look of snow.  
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to see how you can create amazing projects combining exciting new products from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog with the wonderful products available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

SBTD 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers By the Dozen (SBTD) 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop. To celebrate the occasion this month our theme is Stamper's Choice. You will be visiting with my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world as we share our fun project ideas to help inspire you. 

 Today I chose to create my card design using the new Harvest Hellos Bundle from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog that will launch on September 4th. I love this fun stamp set that features apples and pumpkins to create Fall themed cards and there is a coordinating Apple Builder Punch to make life easier.
 I started with a Granny Apple Green cardstock card base and created a frame using Soft Suede cardstock and the Rectangle Stitched Dies and then embossed the frame using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to create the look of a wood frame.
I cut a layer of Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment using Shimmer White Embossing Powder to give the look of writing with chalk on a chalkboard. 
To create the apple, I stamped the apple, leaf and stem images onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Stampin' Blends Markers. I punched out the images using the Apple Builder Punch and attached them to the card front, using Snail Adhesive for the stem and the leaf and Stampin' Demensionals for the apple. To add a little bling, I colored three of the medium size Basic Pearls with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

This cute card is perfect for giving to a teacher to help them through the early days of going back to school and is suitable for both male and female teachers. 

I hope that you have enjoyed my card design today and I hope that it will inspire you to explore creating your own projects. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.

GSF Extraordinary Anniversary Blog Hop

Today we are celebrating our 3rd Anniversary with the Global Stamping Friends Anniversary Blog Hop. It has been an honor to hop along with my wonderful fellow Stampin' Demonstrators as we share our ideas and projects to help inspire you. I hope that you will enjoy today's blog hop as we celebrate 3 years together.
 My card design today features products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog paired up with some Sneak Peek products from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog that will launch September 4th. I love taking products and creating unexpected designs with them and that is what I did when I chose to use the Ornate Frames Dies (150664) and the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (item #150665) from the Monster Bash Suite in the Halloween section of the Holiday Catalog and combine it with the Be Mine Stitched Dies and coordinating Meant To Be stamp set from the Annual Catalog. 
 This pretty card design was created using Rococo Rose cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that I embossed using the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. Next I added a layer of Blushing Bride cardstock that I die cut an opening using one of the large heart dies from the Be Mine Stitched Dies. I attached the Blushing Bride cardstock to the Very Vanilla cardstock layer with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up and create depth for the opening. Using two of the nesting hearts from the same die set, I die cut a thin heart frame from Rococo Rose cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the heart opening with Snail Adhesive. 
 To create the sentiment label, I used the Ornate Frames dies to die cut the detailed frame from Gold Foil. I heat embossed the Congratulations sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (item #151407) onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and then die cut it with the coordinating die from the die set. I added the Very Vanilla Label to the Gold Foil Frame with Snail Adhesive and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals,  overlapping the heart opening. 
Using the small striped heart stamp from the Meant to Be stamp set (item #148626), I stamped the image with Blushing Bride Classic ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die in the Be Mine Stitched Dies (item #148527). I attached the heart die cut with a Stampin' Dimensional to the card front so that the top of the heart overlaps the sentiment. 

To finish off the card design, I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (item #151331) with Versamark ink onto a scrap of Rococo Rose cardstock and heat embossed it with Shimmer White Embossing Powder. I then die cut it with one of the small dies from the Ornate Frames dies and attached it to the card front at an angle, slightly underneath the heart die cut. For a touch of bling, I added a Gold Metallic Pearl to the small sentiment tag.  
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design inspires you to create your own special projects for the people you love and mix and match products that you might not normally think would go together. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
