What's New At SU January Blog Hop Peaceful Poppies Suite

It's time to hop along with the What's New At SU Blog Hop as we showcase the amazing Peaceful Poppies Suite from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
 My card design today features the Painted Poppies Bundle (item #153827) along with the Peaceful Moments stamp set (item #151595) to create this elegant thank you card. For my color combination, I chose Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate, Basic Black and Whisper White to create a clean and simple design with non-traditional colors. 
 To create this card, I chose Smoky Slate cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Blushing Bride cardstock that I embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder from the Power of Hope Bundle (item #152318), a Sale-a-bration product that you can earn Free with a qualifying order. I love the texture this embossing folder adds to the background. 
The poppies and leaves images from the Painted Poppies stamp set were stamped with Versamark ink onto Whisper White cardstock and I heat embossed them with Shimmer Black Embossing Powder. I die cut them with the coordinating dies from the Painted Labels Dies and water colored the poppies with Blushing Bride Classic ink and the leaves with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink using an Aquapainter. I die cut a large label from Smoky Slate cardstock and the smaller label from Whisper White cardstock. 
Using Silver embossing powder, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (item #151595)onto the Whisper White label. I die cut the border from Basic Black cardstock and attached it to the bottom of the Smoky Slate label and attached the layered labels to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the poppies and leaves with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front so that they overlapped the label. To complete the design, I added some shimmer to the poppies and leaves with Clear Wink of Stella and colored two of the Basic Pearls with the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the opposite corners for a touch of bling. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will inspire you to explore the wonderful products in this beautiful suite and inspire you to create your own projects.

SBTD January Blog Hop Celebration

Welcome to the Stampers By the Dozen (SBTD) January Blog Hop with our theme of Celebration. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as we showcase products and ideas to help inspire you to create your own projects. 
 For my celebration card design, I chose to create a birthday card using the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Sending You Thoughts (item #152297), which you can earn for Free with a qualifying $50 order during Sale-a-bration. I paired it with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #152311) which is another Sale-a-bration product you can earn with a qualifying $50 order. 
 I love the combination of Basic Black, Whisper White and Gold Foil. I used Basic Black cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to create the background. I die cut the swirl circle die cut from Gold Foil using the Painted Labels Dies (item #151605) and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
To create the sentiment, I die cut a label using one of the dies from the Painted Labels dies from Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed the birthday sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder. I attached the label to the card using Snail adhesive on the back of one end to attach it to the Gold Foil circle and Stampin' Dimensionals on the other end to attach it to the card front. 
 For the finishing touch, I added two of the Gold flower sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins (item #151325) to the sentiment label with Mini Glue Dots to add a little bling. The Gold Foil details in this card design are great for stepping up this clean and simple card design and adding a touch of elegance. It's a great card design to help celebrate a special occasion. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to explore using designer series paper to step up your projects for the special people in your life. Sale-a-bration ends March 31st, so now is a great time to earning your favorite products for Free with a qualifying order.

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop January 2020

Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop as we share wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their creations using products from Stampin' Up!'s amazing catalogs to help you plan your projects for 2020.
 Today's card features the new By The Dock Bundle (item #153817) from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. I wanted to create a peaceful scene that would be suitable for a masculine birthday card. I love the wonderful images in the By The Dock stamp set (item #151622) and the coordinating dies in the Dockside Dies (item #151618) which makes this bundle a wonderful option for creating masculine card designs. You can choose to order these products separately or as a bundle to save 10%.
 This clean and simple card was created with a Night of Navy card base and I added a 2"x5 1/4" strip of Soft Suede cardstock that I embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (item #152320) and then lightly sponged with Early Espresso Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber to help bring out the woodgrain detail. I attached this panel to the right side of the card base with Snail Adhesive.
For the focal image, I die cut a circle from Very Vanilla cardstock using one of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies (item #141705) and lightly sponged the bottom half of the circle with Seaside Spray Classic ink and the top half with Petal Pink Classic ink using Sponge Daubers to apply the colors. This creates a soft background for the boat, which I stamped with Early Espresso Classic ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and die cut using the coordinating die. I attached the boat to the sponged circle with Snail Adhesive. To create the foreground, I die cut the grass with the coordinating die from the Dockside Dies from Old Olive cardstock. I also die cut two of the detailed oars from Crumb Cake cardstock with the coordinating dies and lightly sponged them with Early Espresso Classic ink.
To assemble the card, I attached two Mini Glue Dots to the right side of back of the focal circle and Snail Adhesive to the rest and attached it to the bottom of the card base, overlapping the embossed Soft Suede cardstock panel. I attached the grass die cut with Snail Adhesive along the bottom of the card so that it overlapped the circle and covered the bottom edge of the Soft Suede cardstock. 

For the sentiment I die cut a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (item #149638) from Very Vanilla cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment with Copper Embossing powder. I cut each of the oars in half and attached them to the back of the sentiment label with Snail Adhesive, so that they appeared to cross behind the sentiment. I attached the label using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the card base, towards the top of the card design. 
This clean and simple card design works well for a variety of occasions. Masculine cards are often a challenge and I think this new By The Dock Bundle is a welcome addition to my card making tool kit. 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.
