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

Welcome to Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop for the month of May. We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who support each other and our businesses while learning new techniques and ideas that we can share with you all. We will be sharing project ideas featuring current Stampin' Up! products to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects. 

 Today's card design has a more masculine feel to it. I created this design using the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (item #149497) to add texture to the background and combined it with the Sea of Textures stamp set (item #151267) and the coordinating Under The Sea Dies (item #151784) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. All of these wonderful products are on the Last Chance Retirement List and are available while supplies last.

For this card design, I chose to use Mint Macaron cardstock for the card base and added a layer of the Pretty Peacock designer series paper from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper to create the background. I love this color combination and I think it works well for a seaside theme. 
To create the focal design of this card, I die cut a detailed fishing net using one of the dies from the Under The Sea Dies from Soft Suede cardstock and attached it to the card front with Snail Adhesive. I also die cut a large Sand Dollar using the die from the same die set from Very Vanilla cardstock and attached a circle of Grapefruit Grove cardstock behind it punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and trimmed around the edge. 
 To create the sentiment, I cut a strip of 1"x 4"  Pretty Peacock cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from the Sea of Textures stamp set with Silver Embossing Powder. I layered this strip onto a 1 1/4" x 4" Mint Macaron cardstock and attached it to the card front over the center of the fishing net. I attached the Sand Dollar to the sentiment strip with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. I love how this color combination works together to create this beautiful masculine card design. It's important to remember that the men in our lives need our support too and I feel like this sentiment is very appropriate for what we are all going through. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects.
