Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for August. Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world are sharing their amazing projects and ideas to help inspire you with your own creations. We hope you enjoy the projects we have to share with you this month.Today I created this fun card design inspired by fellow Demonstrator, Jan Farring. I loved her idea for cutting the designer series paper layer into triangles and then flipping the left and right side triangles to create a quilt style pattern. For my card design, I used of the designs from the beautiful Flowers For Every Season 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #152486) and paired it with several of the new 2020-2022 In Color products, which can all be found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
To create this card design, I started with a Just Jade cardstock card base and added a 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White cardstock layer for the base of the background. I cut a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" designer series paper diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner and the rotated it to cut it diagonally the other direction, creating 4 triangles. Leaving the larger two triangles with the floral pattern, I flipped the two side triangles so that the Just Jade pattern was facing up to provide contrast. I then adhered the triangles to the Whisper White cardstock layer, leaving a gap between the triangles that creates a white border to the design.
For the sentiment, I punched out a label from Misty Moonlight cardstock, using the Everyday Label Punch (item #144668) and then punched out a label from Whisper White cardstock using the Label Me Fancy Punch (item #151297). I heat embossed the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set (item #151643) using Silver Embossing Powder and adhered the label to the Misty Moonlight label. I colored two of the medium Basic Pearls with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the sentiment label for a pop of color. To complete the design, I cut two pieces of Magenta Madness 1/4" Ribbon (item #153623) approx 4 1/4" long and cut the ends diagonally. I attached them to the center of the card front and added the sentiment label over the top with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then added the card front to the Just Jade card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. This clean and simple design is a wonderful way to use your designer series paper to create beautiful cards for all occasions.
