SBTD Something Old & Something New Blog Hop

Welcome to the SBTD Something Old & Something New Blog Hop. This month we are sharing ideas and projects to help you pair up new products from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog with old favorites that have carried over from past catalogs. 
 My card design today features the new Wildly Happy Cling stamp set (item #149408) paired with the Layering Circles Dies (item #141705) and Stitched Shapes Dies (item #152323) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I thought it would be fun to pair a new stamp set with some old favorite die sets.
 My card base was created from Rococo Rose cardstock, one of the new 2019-2021 In Colors. It works beautifully with Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride cardstock. I embossed the layer of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder to create a quilted look to the background. 
The bunnies image has been stamped onto a Very Vanilla cardstock circle die cut using the dies from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the image with Early Espresso Classic ink and colored the background and inside of the ears using the Stampin' Blends Markers. I layered the colored image onto a circle of Very Vanilla cardstock that I punched out using the 2 1/4" Circle Punch and then layered it onto a circle die cut from Blushing Bride cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. The last layer was created from Rococo Rose cardstock using one of the Scalloped Circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies. I attached the image to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
The sentiment was stamped with Rococo Rose Classic ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and punched out using the Story Label Punch. Using the Rococo Rose Light Stampin' Blend Marker,  I colored a piece of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim and attached it to the card front. I attached the sentiment label on top of the lace using Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the sentiment, I colored two of the smallest Basic Pearls with the Rococo Rose Light Stampin' Blends Marker and attached them to the label. 

I love the soft and pretty look to this card design and I think it makes a wonderful baby card for a little girl. By changing the colors for this card, you could create a card design suitable for a baby boy or keep it neutral so that it isn't gender specific. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today and I hope that my card design helps inspire you to mix and match your old favorites with some new products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. 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.

Colour Combo June Blog Hop

It's time to hop with the Colour Combo June Blog Hop and this month we have been challenged to create a project using Gray Granite, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world, sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you with your own creative projects. 
 My card design today features a wonderful stamp set that you can earn for Free when you host a qualifying party. New Wonders stamp set (item #149426) is just one of the amazing Stampin' Rewards Host stamp sets available to choose from. I just love the beautiful fairy images in this stamp set and the sentiments are wonderful. 
I chose to use Gray Granite cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Poppy Parade cardstock to add a bright pop of color to frame the Whisper White card front. I stamped the fairy image onto the Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in the image using Poppy Parade Light and Dark, Daffodil Delight Light and Dark and Gray Granite Light and Dark Stampin' Blends Markers. I used the Petal Pink Light Stampin' Blend Marker for her face. To add a touch of shimmer, I colored over the image with Clear Wink of Stella. 
To create the daisy in the bottom corner, I stamped the large daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set (item #149325), twice onto Daffodil Delight cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed the images with Whisper White embossing powder. I punched out both images using the Daisy Punch. I then stamped the medium size daisy image using Daffodil Delight Classic ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch. I layered the images on top of each other to create the daisy. I stamped the fern image twice onto the card front using Gray Granite Classic ink to create the background for the daisy and then attached the flower on top using a Stampin' Dimensional. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the Daffodil Delight stamped petals for a touch of shimmer.  For the center of the Daisy, I added a Clear Faceted Gem to add some sparkle. 
To finish off the card design, I stamped the sentiments onto the card front using Gray Granite Classic ink and added Basic Rhinestones for a little added bling. 

This card was so much fun to create and I loved combining these two stamp sets together to create the design. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own magical creations. 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.

What's New at SU Blog Hop New Catalog


Welcome to the June What's New at SU Blog Hop and this month we are celebrating the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world as they share fun projects created with new products from this wonderful catalog. 
 Today I thought I would share the adorable We'll Walrus Be Friends Cling stamp (item #149367). This set has the cutest images and the sentiments are a perfect fit for the images and to create fun and thoughtful card designs. 
 For my color combination, I chose Coastal Cabana cardstock for my card base and I added a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock to help make the Pool Party cardstock card front pop. I embossed the Pool Party cardstock with the new High Seas 3D Embossing Folder (item #149577) and outlined the embossing with Clear Wink of Stella to create the look of sunlight reflecting off the waves. 
For the focal image, I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers. I punched it out with the 2" Circle Punch and layered it onto the Coastal Cabana starburst circle punched out with the Starburst Punch. I then popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added it to a Smoky Slate cardstock circle die cut with the Layering Circles Dies. 
For the sentiment, I heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and punched it out using the Story Label Punch. I then layered it with a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock punched out with the same punch. I added the sentiment on top of a piece of Whisper White Flax Ribbon, using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card, I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling.
I just love how this card turned out and can't wait to use this stamp set again. It is so much fun to work with. I hope that you enjoy this card as much as I did creating it.  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. 

Now it's time to hop over to Loni's blog to see what she has to share with us. Just click the Next button below to visit her blog. I hope you enjoy our blog hop this month.

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop June 2019

It's time for Kylie's Demonstrator Training June Blog Hop and this month I am showcasing products from the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world as they share their amazing projects.  We are a group of demonstrators sharing ideas and a common goal to help us build and strengthen our businesses through creativity. I hope you enjoy what we have to share this month. 
 For my card design this month, I am showcasing the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (item #149484)  and coordinating Good Morning Magnolia Bundle (item #151087). This lovely clean and simple card design has an elegant feel to it and is suitable for a variety of occasions. The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set (item #149298) contains a variety of beautiful images and versatile sentiments that make it easy to create wonderful projects. I was inspired by a card design that Kylie Bertucci shared recently and couldn't wait to create my own version. 
 To create this card, I chose to use Basic Black cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the designer series paper for my card front. The variety of patterns in this paper pack are simply stunning and it was difficult to choose which design to feature for today's card. The particular design is probably one of my favorites and I love the way the flowers seem to pop off the page. 
For the sentiment, I cut a 1 1/4" x 4 1/4" strip of Whisper White cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment image using Copper embossing powder. I created a matte for this strip with a 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" strip of Basic Black cardstock and attached it to the card front using Snail adhesive. 
 To complete the card design, I stamped the flower bud image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Copper embossing powder and colored the petals and leaves using Stampin' Blends Markers to mimic the flowers in the designer series paper. I then die cut the flower using the coordinating dies from the Magnolia Memory Dies (item 149578) and attached it to the sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  Remember that when you order the stamp set and coordinating dies as a bundle, you save 10%.  
This card is a wonderful example of how you can create simply stunning cards by letting the beautiful designer series paper do all the work for you. From one 12"x12" sheet of designer series paper, you can cut 6 card front size pieces to create 6 beautiful cards. That means that you could create 72 cards from one pack of designer series paper. What a wonderful way to create a variety of cards and get amazing value from you pretty pack. 

I hope that you have enjoyed the card design I have shared today. Please take the time to visit the other members of our blog hop and see their amazing creations. Just click on the links in the blog hop list below to find your way. 

Until Next Time

2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop Dads & Grads

Welcome to the 2019 Kre8tors June Blog Hop and this month our theme is Dads & Grads. Here in the U.S., June is the month for celebrating graduations as well Father's Day. I hope that the projects that we have to share with you this month, will help you to create your own creations for family and friends. 
 I decided to create a non-traditional Graduation card design that would work for both high school and college graduations. Recently I saw a card design by fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Rick Adkins, using the new Daisy Lane Cling stamp set (item #149325) from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it inspired me to create this card design. 
 Rather than using traditional school colors to create my card design, I chose to use Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce for a fresh, clean and simple look. I chose Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Shaded Spruce for the card front. I stamped the fern leaf image several times over the Shaded Spruce cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder. I really liked the way the Silver embossing popped against the Shaded Spruce cardstock to create a classically elegant background.
To create the sentiment, I heat embossed a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock measuring 1 1/4" x 5 1/4" with the small Daisy image and the sentiments from the stamp set, with Silver embossing powder. I layered this strip onto a strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock measuring 1 1/2" x 5 1/4", and attached the sentiment strip to the card front with Snail Adhesive. To finish off the card design, I added three Silver Pearls from the Metallic Pearls Pack (item #146282), next to the embossed sentiment. 

This design works well as both a masculine and feminine graduation card design and to me, represents the transition from school to the next stage of life. 


I hope that my card design will inspire you to explore creating your own projects and try out the new Daisy Lane stamp set. This stamp set coordinates with the Medium Daisy Punch, and when you order them  as the Daisy Lane Bundle, you can save 10%. If you live in the U.S. and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.

GSF June Blog Hop Birthday Celebrations

It's time to hop along with the Global Stamping Friends (GSF) June Blog Hop. This month we are celebrating birthdays and sharing our project ideas to help inspire you. After all, we all have a birthday and it is one of the most popular cards that we give to the people we care about. I hope our projects will encourage you to create your own birthday creations for family and friends. 
 My birthday card design features the new Above the Clouds Bundle (item #151135) from the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog that launched this week. The bundle is made up of the Above the Clouds photopolymer stamp set (item #149404) and Hot Air Balloon Punch (item #149520). When you order both of these products as the bundle, you save 10%. 
 For this card design, I chose Thick Whisper White cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Blueberry Bushel cardstock for the card front. The balloon images in the Above the Clouds stamp set are two step stamps and it makes it easy to color the line images with the solid image stamps. I stamped the line images of the balloons and baskets with Soft Suede Classic ink and stamped the solid images of the balloons using Pineapple Punch Classic ink and Grapefruit Grove Classic ink. For the solid images of the basket, I used Crumb Cake Classic ink. I used the Hot Air Balloon Punch to punch out the stamped images. 
To create the background on the card front, I stamped the row of small balloon line images onto the Blueberry Bushel cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed the images with Copper embossing powder. I then attached the Grapefruit Grove Balloon and basket to the card front with Snail Adhesive. I attached the Pineapple Punch balloon and basket using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up and slightly overlap the other balloon. 
 To create the sentiment, I chose the Perennial Birthday Cling stamp set (item #151240) and heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment using Copper embossing powder. I then punched out the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch (item #143715). I then stamped the label using the clouds image and Balmy Blue Classic ink, stamping it off once to provide a soft silhouette look to the top and bottom of the label. 

This clean and simple card design is perfect as a masculine birthday card or even for a teenager. I love the bold primary colors from the 2018-2020 In Color Collection and how they all work together. 
I hope that you have enjoyed my card design and I hope that it inspires you to create your own fun birthday cards and explore the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. 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.
