Around The World On Wednesday December Blog Hop Something New, Something Old

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday December Blog Hop as we showcase projects with this month's theme, "Something New, Something Old". You will be visiting with our talented Design Team Members as they share ideas and projects to help inspire you to get creative and step outside your comfort zone.
For my card design today, I decided to share a Sneak Peek of the new Blessings of Home Bundle that will be in the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and I combined it with the Hand-Penned Memories & More products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I love the soft and pretty card base from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards and Envelopes and I added the large floral image from the Blessings of Home stamp set and colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers using colors featured in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. With just a few simple embellishments, I have created a soft and pretty Birthday card to brighten someone's special day.

Happy Birthday Sentiment Sticker
This pretty card is so simple to create with minimal supplies. I love coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers and this beautiful floral image is perfect for coloring with these wonderful markers. I added the colored, die cut image to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals and added two pieces of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon underneath the image, folding each piece in half to create the look of the tails of a bow. The sentiment is preprinted and I added it to the card base below the floral image, making sure it was centered. The final touch for this design, was to add three of the Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card around the floral image. These wonderful embellishments are another Sneak Peek from the new mini catalog and I just love how they dress up this card design. I feel like combining the new products from the new mini catalog helps to bring life to the Hand-Penned Memories & More products in the Annual Catalog to give them a fresh new look. I hope that you will give them a try and see what you can come up with.

Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights December 2021

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for December as we showcase beautiful Thank You cards to help inspire you. Thank You cards are one of the most important cards you can send to the people in your life and we hope that our projects and ideas will help encourage you to create your wonderful cards. You will have the opportunity to visit with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world as the share their amazing Thank You cards. 
One of my favorite ways to create pretty Thank You cards is with designer series paper. For today's card design, I chose to use one of the beautiful designs from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I am so sad that this pretty paper is retiring, so I am making the most of the opportunity to showcase it while it's still available. I paired it with the coordinating Nature's Harvest stamp set, with one of my favorite techniques, Heat Embossing. I love the way the White embossing powder pops against the Misty Moonlight cardstock and coordinates with the pattern in the designer series paper. This wonderful clean and simple card design is perfect for creating multiple cards to have on hand in your stash, just waiting for that moment when you need a special Thank You card. 
Products Used:
Nature's Harvest stamp set (item #156495)
Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (item #156494) Retiring)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Misty Moonlight Cardstock (item #153081)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Basics Embossing Powders (item #155554)
Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #153108)
Whit 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (item #151326)
Opal Rounds (item #154289)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Misty Moonlight Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Focal Label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Sentiment Label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
This pretty clean and simple card design is easy to assemble and requires just a few supplies to complete. The designer series paper card front provides a wonderful background for the card and helps make the Misty Moonlight labels stand out. I love how the White embossing steps up this card design and I used the Light Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends Marker to color a piece of the White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to embellish the card. To finish off the design, I added three of the Opal Rounds for a touch of bling. There are so many beautiful designs in this pretty designer series paper pack that you could use to create your own wonderful Thank You cards, using this simple layout. I hope you will give it a try and create your own beautiful cards. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own beautiful cards to send to the people in your life. It's amazing what a difference a card can make to help brighten someone's day and help them feel appreciated.

Global Stamping Friends December Blog Hop Regals Collection


Welcome to the Gobal Stamping Friends December Blog Hop as we showcase projects created using the Regals Collection. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you.
The Regals Collection has a wonderful assortment of colors that I love to use for late Summer and Fall card designs. The colors are warm and rich and have a muted hue to them that helps them work well together to create projects. For my card design today, I chose to use the new Blessings of Home stamp set combined with the new Gingham Embossing Folder, both from the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog that launches January 4th, 2022. I love the texture that the embossing folder adds to the Old Olive cardstock background and I chose to color the floral image with Stampin' Blends Markers to create a bright, bold look for the focal design. 
Products Used:
Blessings of Home stamp set (item #157930) Sneak Peek
Gingham Embossing Folder (item #157627) Sneak Peek
Harvest Dies (item #156504)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Garden Green Cardstock (item #102584) 
Old Olive Cardstock (item #100702)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Memento Tuxedo Black Pad (item #132708)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Real Red Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154899)
Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154897)
Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154892)
Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends Combo Pack (item #154879)
Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Measurements:
Garden Green Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Old Olive Cardstock
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4" Embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder
Basic White Cardstock
Scalloped Rectangle die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Sentiment Label die cut with Harvest Dies
This clean and simple card design has an almost vintage feel to it. I love the way the Stampin' Blends Markers bring the floral image to life and make it pop against the Basic White cardstock. To step up the design, I embossed the Old Olive card front with the new Gingham Embossing Folder to add texture to the design and I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder to add a touch of elegance. I added two small Basic Rhinestone Jewels to finish off the card and add a touch of bling. It was so much fun to create this card with some of the new products from the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. These products will be available for customers to order beginning January 4th, 2022. Can't wait that long to get your hands on the new products? If you sign up to become a Stampin' Up!

We Create December Blog Hop Holiday Quickies

 
Welcome to the We Create December Blog Hop as we showcase quick project ideas to help you get ready for the holidays. With just a few weeks to go until Christmas, there are still wonderful projects you can create to share with family and friends that don't have to take a lot of your time. You will be visiting with our Design Team members as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you.
One of the best ways to create Christmas cards quickly and simply is by using designer series paper. The designs create a beautiful background and you can get six card fronts from one 12"x12" sheet of designer series paper. For my quick Christmas card today, I chose to use one of the designs from the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper for the background and I die cut one of the stockings from another sheet using the coordinating Stockings Dies. The wonderful thing about this card design is that there is mininal stamping involved - just the sentiment, and you can create multiples of the same card in a short amount of time. This design is great for mailing as it has a low profile that won't cost you extra postage. This design would also be perfect for a masculine Christmas card for the guys in your life. 
Products Used:
Penguin Place stamp set (item #156410)
Stockings Dies (item #156288) Retiring
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)
Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper (item #156281) Retiring
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock (item #119685)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Old Olive Classic Ink Pad (item #147090)

Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4"0
Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper
Card Front - 5 1/4" x 4"
Stocking die cut with Stockings Dies
Basic White Cardstock
Scalloped Rectangle die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Clean and simple cards are my favorite style to create. I love being able to use designer series paper to create beautiful cards and it also gives me the option to create different looks by mixing and matching the paper designs. The Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper has a wonderful combination of patterns and images that provides a lot of options for backgrounds and focal images for cards. For this card design, I wanted it to be suitable to send to both men and women so I chose the one of the stockings for my focal image and I love that I could use the coordinating dies to avoid having to fussy cut. The Stitched So Sweetly Dies are great for die cutting labels for the focal image and I had room at the bottom to stamp the sentiment from the Penguin Place stamp set with Old Olive Classic ink. For a touch of bling, I used two of the Cherry Cobbler dots from the Matte Decorative Dots and I love that they have a low profile that works well for mailing. The Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper, Stockings Dies and Matte Decorative Dots are all part of the Stockings Suite in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and are part of the Last Chance Retirememt Sale which began today. These products are only available while supplies last, so don't wait too long to place your order. 
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope that my card design will help you to create your own cards to celebrate the holidays and send them to family and friends. There are so many wonderful options to explore in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities November Blog Hop Gifts Galore

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities November Blog Hop as we showcase alternative project ideas featuring the Gifts Galore Kit. You will be visiting with our talented Design Team Members as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you to think outside the box. 
Once again, Paper Pumpkin has outdone themselves with a simply amazing kit. The cute gift packaging is just what I needed for this time of year to create Teacher Gifts for my son's teachers. So because I was using most of the supplies from my kit, I needed to come up with a different way to create my alternate project. One of my favorite things about each month's Paper Pumpkin kit, is the exclusive stamp set. So, I decided to create my projects using all the stamp images from this month's stamp set. 
Products Used:
Paper Pumpkin November Gifts Galore Kit
Tailor Made Tags Dies (item #155563)
Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (item #141416)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)

Basic White 2 Layers - 5 1/4" x 4"
Christmas Tag
Large Tag die cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies
For my projects, I decided to use non-traditional Christmas colors to create my designs. I wanted clean and simple designs that would be bright and cheerful. I chose to use Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the card base and gift tag to coordinate with the Flirty Flamingo ink spot in this month's kit. For the card design, I decided to add Balmy Blue, Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron Classic inks to go with the Flirty Flamingo and I used both White and Silver embossing powders to step up my designs. For the Christmas card, I stamped the presents with Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Classic inks along the left side of the Basic White cardstock layer and heat embossed the ribbon image twice with Silver embossing powder. I also heat embossed the sentiment and embellished the card with Basic Rhinestone Jewels. For the inside of the card, I stamped the presents along the left side with Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Classic inks and stamped the ribbon and sentiment with Flirty Flamingo Classic ink to complete the design.
For the Christmas Tag, I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder using the sentiment and snowflakes image for the front and the To/From image for the back of the tag. I tied a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon through the hole to decorate the tag. I love the simplicity of the design and the way the embossing steps up the tag. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Christmas card and gift tag will help inspire you to explore creating your own alternative projects with your Paper Pumpkin Kit.
