New At SU July Blog Hop 2020-2022 In Colors


It's time to hop along with the New At SU July Blog Hop and this month we are showcasing the amazing new 2020-2022 In Colors from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share ideas and projects to help inspire you. I am excited to see what everyone has to share this month with these beautiful new colors.
 Today's card features three of the new 2020-2022 In Colors - Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee and Just Jade. I wanted to create a masculine birthday card and I loved how these three colors looked together. I chose the Pattern Play Bundle (item #154087) from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and combined it with various In Color products to create this clean and simple card design. 
 To create this card, I started with a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base and I added a 5"x3 3/4" layer of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I added a 4 3/4" x3 1/2" layer of Whisper White cardstock to create the background and used stamped two of the images from the Pattern Play stamp set using Bumblebee and Just Jade Classic ink pads. 
The main sentiment was created by die cutting the letters from Just Jade cardstock using the Playful Alphabet Dies (item #152706) and I attached them to a 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" Misty Moonlight piece of cardstock. For the smaller sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set (item #148618) with White Embossing Powder onto a 3/4" strip of Just Jade cardstock. I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (item #152883) to create the label. 
To assemble the card, I added a piece of Bumblebee 1/4" Ribbon (item #153622) across the center of the stamped background panel and then attached it to the Misty Moonlight cardstock layer. I attached this to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. For the Just Jade sentiment label, I attached it to the bottom of the Misty Moonlight sentiment piece with Stampin' Dimensionals and added two Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. This card was simple to create and I love how the products coordinate to make it simple to create with these beautiful colors. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design inspires you to explore these beautiful new In Colors and create your own wonderful projects.

Around The World On Wednesday July Blog Hop CASE A Team Member

Welcome to the Around The World on Wednesday July Blog Hop and this month we are CASEing our fellow Team Members for some fun inspiration. You will have the opportunity to visit many talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world and be inspired by their creative ideas. We also have two wonderful special guests this month - the very talented Kylie and Bruno Bertucci, for added inspiration. I hope you will enjoy our blog hop this month. 
How does this work? Each of us will be using a card designed by a fellow team member as our inspiration for our project this month. I am so excited to be CASEing the wonderful Satomi Wellard, a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Japan and Australia. 
 Satomi's Card post
I chose to CASE the beautiful card shown above that Satomi created using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (item #152483) and I loved the layout with the contrasting paper colors and designs. Below is the design that I came up with that was inspired by her lovely card design.
 For my card design, I chose to do a simple fun fold. I chose Gray Granite cardstock for the card base and I cut a 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece and scored it at 3 1/4". For the front panel, I cut a 3 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock and attached it to the card front. For the inside panel, I cut a 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock. I cut a piece of the Peony Garden Suite Designer Series Paper at 5 1/4" x 4" and then I cut a 1" strip off so that I had two pieces - 5 1/4" x 3" and 5 1/4" x 1". Attached the larger piece to the card front with the Gray Granite pattern facing up and I attached the 1" strip to the inside panel on the right side, with the Petal Pink pattern facing up. 
 To create the focal design, I die cut the base layer of the butterflies die image from the Butterfly Beauty Dies (item #151819) from Thick Whisper White cardstock and the detailed layer was die cut from Gold Foil. I adhered the Gold detailed layer to the Whisper White layer and then attached the butterflies to the card front so that they slightly overlapped the card front. 
 I die cut two of the small butterflies from Gold Foil and attached them to the inside panel of the card on opposite corners to decorate. I liked the elegant touch the Gold Foil added to the inside design. 
The sentiment was created using the Gorgeous Posies stamp set (item #153289) and I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder onto a 3/4" strip of Whisper White cardstock and created a  label using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (item #152883). I layered it onto a 1" Petal Pink cardstock label that I created also using the punch. 
 To complete the card design, I attached the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and embellished the label and the card front with small Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. I love that I was able to take elements from Satomi's wonderful card to help me create my own unique design. It's one of my favorite things about CASEing.  
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 encourages you to CASE designs to help you explore new ways to create your projects.  It can open up a whole new world of creativity. The products I chose for my card design can be found in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Kylie's International Blog Highlights July 2020

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for July as we share projects and ideas to help inspire you. Our theme for this month is Thank You and we have talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world sharing their projects with you today. 
 One of my favorite bundles in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (item #154065). One of the reasons why I love it so much, is that it is so versatile and you can change the look and feel of this bundle simply by changing the colors for you r project. 
For this card design, I chose to use Rococo Rose cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock for the background layer, that I embossed using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (item #153200). I love the texture that this embossing folder adds to the design. 
I wanted my flower to look similar to a Gerbera Daisy, so I chose Blushing Bride cardstock for the background layer of the flower and I die cut the detailed layer from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Sunflowers Dies (item #152704). I punched a circle from So Saffron cardstock using the 1 1/2" Circle Punch (which fits perfectly behind the center of the detailed die cut) and I sponged it with So Saffron Classic ink. Using adhesive, I attached the sponged circle behind the center of the Rococo Rose detailed die cut. I attached Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the So Saffron circle and then lined up the two layers before attaching the So Saffron circle to the center of the Blushing Bride flower base. To create the leaves, I die cut two of the base leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock and two detailed leaves from Just Jade cardstock and layered them together with adhesive. I also die cut one of the detailed fern leaves from Just Jade cardstock. 
The sentiment was created by heat embossing the image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set (item #152517) onto a 3/4" strip of Very Vanilla cardstock using Gold Embossing Powder and then I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (item #152883) to decorate the ends. To assemble the card, I attached the fern leaves to the back of the flower and then attached the flower to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the leaves so that tucked underneath the flower on either side of the fern leaves. I attached the sentiment along the bottom of the card front so that the flower petals slightly overlapped the sentiment label. For a touch of bling, I added 3 of the Gilded Gems to the card front and used Clear Wink of Stella on the flower and leaves for a touch of shimmer to finish off the design. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own wonderful Thank You cards.

GSF July Blog Hop 2020-2022 In Colors

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends (aka GSF) July Blog Hop as we showcase the new 2020-2022 In Colors from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. These bold, vibrant colors are so versatile and I am excited to see all the wonderful projects my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators will be sharing during our hop this month. 
 Today I created a card design using the Jar of Flowers Bundle (item #154064) and I wanted to focus on the sunflowers image for my design. I thought that the combination of Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider would be perfect for this card design and I love the way they look together.
 To create this card, I started with Cinnamon Cider cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Bumblebee Designer Series Paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #153070), to create the background. For the focal image, I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (item #149638) to die cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for the label background and attached it to the center of the card front. 
The focal design was created by stamping the sunflower image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set (item #152515) using Soft Suede Classic ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored the image using a variety of Stampin' Blends Markers and then fussy cut the image. I stamped the jar image using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink onto a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and used the coordinating Jar Punch to punch it out. I attached the jar image towards the bottom of the Very Vanilla cardstock label and attached the floral image on top of the jar using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. 
For the sentiment label, I used one of the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (item #151331) and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder onto a scrap of Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I die cut the sentiment using one of the smaller dies from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and attached it onto the jar with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the design, I added some Gilded Gems (item #152478) for a touch of bling. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design inspires you to experiment with these wonderful new In Colors to create your own fun projects.

ICS July Blog Hop Favorite Bundle

It's the beginning of July and time to hop along with the ICS Blog Hop as we share our favorite bundles from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their creative ideas to help inspire you. 
 I have so many "favorites" in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog but the Pampered Pets Bundle (item #154069) is the one that tugs at my heart. As a lover of both dogs and cats, this bundle is perfect for me and I love that the Pampered Pets stamp set (item #152520) has coordinating dies with the Pets Dies (item #152705) and when you order them together as a bundle, you save 10%. 
 It was tough to decide which images to use, but I finally decided to create my design with this cute cat. I chose Smoky Slate cardstock for my card base and I added a layer of Flirty Flamingo cardstock for a pop of color. The background layer was created with a 5" x 3 3/4" Whisper White cardstock and I added a strip of 1 1/4" x 5" designer series paper from the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (item #152489) to the left side with adhesive. I added a piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon along the edge of the designer series paper to create a decorative border. 
For the focal image, I stamped the cat image onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Basic Gray Classic ink and colored in the image using Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Markers and Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Markers for the inside of the ears. I blended the area on the neck and tail using the Color Lifter to lighten and soften the color of the fur. Using the coordinating die, I die cut the cat image and added Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back. To create the background, I die cut a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies (item #152323) and a layering scalloped Flirty Flamingo cardstock circle using the Layering Circles Dies (item #151770). I stamped the mouse image using Basic Gray Classic ink towards the bottom of the Whisper White circle and colored it with Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker. For the hearts, I stamped the image twice towards the top of the circle, using Flirty Flamingo Classic ink and colored them with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker. I added the cat image to the Whisper White circle, centering it between the hearts and the mouse. 
For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image onto a scrap of Basic Black cardstock with White Embossing Powder and die cut the sentiment using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies (item #151820). To assemble the card design, I attached the circle image towards the top center of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and then attached the sentiment below the circle, centering it, using Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete the design, I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. I love how Playful Pets Designer Series Paper worked with the Pampered Pets Bundle to create this fun and pretty card design. You can find both of these products in the Playful Pets Suite on pages 40-42 in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps you to see the versatility of this cute bundle and how much fun it is to create projects with it. The Playful Pets Suite has so many wonderful products that coordinate to help make creating simple and stress free.
