Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop September 2019

Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for September and our last blog hop together as part of this wonderful year of training and sharing with my fellow demonstrators from around the world. This has been an amazing experience and I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and learn so much that has helped me grow as a demonstrator and as a person. I hope that you will enjoy our last blog hop together and be inspired by the amazing projects that we have to share with you all.

 My card design today features the beautiful Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (item #149497) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I love that the new 2019-2021 In Colors coordinate perfectly with the wonderful patterns in this paper pack and make it simple to create projects using these colors. The combination of Terracotta Tile and Seaside Spray made me think of how we are transitioning from Summer into Fall, I thought these colors worked well together. The Overlay Fun Fold is a wonderful card design that I discovered from fellow demonstrator, Susan Campfield, and I thought would work beautifully with this pretty paper. 
 The sheet of designer series paper that I chose from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper pack predominantly features Seaside Spray with hints of Terracotta Tile. I chose to use Terracotta Tile cardstock for the base of my card to create a nice contrast.  To create my daisy, I stamped the images from the Daisy Lane stamp set (item #149325) on Whisper White cardstock using Seaside Spray Classic ink. I stamped the medium daisy image twice and then punched both of them out using the Medium Daisy Punch (item #149517) and layered them together with a Mini Glue Dot. I then stamped the large daisy image twice and punched them out using the Daisy Punch (item #143713) and layered them together with a Mini Glue Dot. To complete the daisy, I layered the medium daisy on top of the large daisy and attached them together with several Mini Glue Dots. Did you know that when you order both the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating Medium Daisy Punch as the Daisy Lane Bundle (item #151118), you can save 10%? It's a great way to help you with your stamping budget. 
For the inside panel of the card, I attached two 3/4"x4" strips of the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper to the sides of the 5 1/4"x4" Whisper White cardstock insert and then attached it to the inside of the card. This provides and area to write a message that will be hidden behind the front panel of the card.
 For the front of the card design, I attached a 3/4"x5 1/4" strip of the same designer series paper across the top of the Terracotta Tile card base, which has been cut to 5 1/4" x 5 1/2" and scored at 1" along the 5 1/4" side to create a small flap. I attached a 5" x4" piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock to the inside of the card flap using Tear & Tape Adhesive for added strength, lining up the bottom of the piece with the base of the back of the card base. For the design area, I added a 3"x3 3/4" Whisper White cardstock layer to the Terracotta Tile layer. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set (item #152729) with Copper Embossing Powder onto the Whisper White cardstock. 

I punched out two of the leaves from Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Leaf Punch (item #144667) and attached them to the card front with Snail Adhesive so that the stems would be underneath the daisy. I also attached a piece of the Terracotta Tile 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon (item #149705) between the leaves so that it would stick out from underneath the daisy. To finish off the card, I attached the Seaside Spray daisy onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, making sure to center it so that it the leaves and ribbon were visible. For a touch of bling, I added a Clear Faceted Gem (item $144142) to the center of the daisy and lightly brushed the petals with the Clear Wink of Stella for a touch of shimmer.
