Share It Sunday July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Share It Sunday July Blog Hop as we share projects we are currently working on to help spark your creativity. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you.
Today I am sharing two cards I created with new products from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the August-September 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog. I love playing with new products and experimenting with new color combinations, so I decided to a version of a One Sheet Wonder but I only used half a sheet of Basic White cardstock, measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". The Delicate Dahlias stamp set has a wonderful variety of images so I stamped the Basic White cardstock to create a pretty background. I also used one of the images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set to add texture to the design. The colors I chose were Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron and Just Jade. I chose Thick Basic White cardstock to create the card bases to help make the stamped backgrounds pop. 
Products Used:

Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item #144220)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Measurements:
Thick Basic White Cardstock
2 Card Bases - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Basic White Cardstock
8 1/2" x 5 1/2" - stamped background design
Cut to create 2 card fronts - 3 3/4" x 5" & 3 3/4" x 4 3/4"
2 Sentiment Labels die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies
Just Jade Cardstock
2 Tags die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies
Card 1 (Horizontal)
I took the 5" x 3 3/4" stamped piece and attached it to the Thick Basic White cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder onto the Basic White Label and then attached it to the Just Jade Label with adhesive. Using a piece of Fresh Freesia Ribbon, I tied a knot to embellish the tag. I attached the tags to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals and finished off the design with some Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. 
Card 2 (Vertical):
I centered the 4 3/4" " x 3 3/4" stamped background to the Thick Basic White card base. The reason for this strange measurement is that I made a mistake when cutting and accidently cut it a 1/4" shorter on the long side. Note to self: pay more attention when cutting. 
I created the sentiment labels the same as for the first card design and attached them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Once again, I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. 
These clean and simple cards are great for a variety of occasions and this technique is a wonderful way to play with new products and explore new color combinations. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to create your own wonderful designs to share with family and friends. The One Sheet Wonder technique is a fun way to play with paper, stamps and ink to create beautiful cards.

3D Paper Trimmer July Blog Hop Vacation

Welcome to the 3D Paper Trimmer July Blog Hop and this month our theme is Vacation. Here in the U.S. it is Summer time and the perfect time to go on vacation. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you.
When I think of vacation time, I think of the ocean and the chance to relax and read a good book. So today I thought I would share this cute Corner Bookmark that I created using the Sailing Home stamp set and coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. I was inspired by the fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Debbie Henderson, from her You Tube video here and she gives wonderful instructions to create this fun bookmark. I love how it slides onto the corner of the page to help you keep your place when reading your favorite book.
Products Used:
Sailing Home stamp set (item #149457)
Smooth Sailing Dies (item #149576)
2020-2022 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #155230)
Misty Moonlight Cardstock (item #153081)
Sahara Sand Cardstock (item #121043)
Pear Pizzazz Cardstock (item #131201)
Basic White Cardstock (item #159276)
Copper Foil Sheets (item #142020)
Misty Moonlight Classic Ink Pad (item #153118)
Sahara Sand Classic Ink Pad (item #147117)
Versamark Pad (item #102283)
Metallics Embossing Powders (item #155555)
Stampin' Dimensionals (item #104430)
Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (item #144108)
Tear & Tape Adhesive (item #154031)
Measurements:
Misty Moonlight Cardstock
4" x 4" Square - mark at the 2" point on three sides and score diagonally as per the video 
Sentiment Label die cut with the Smooth Sailing Dies
Basic White Cardstock
2 Squares - 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" mark at the 1 7/8" mark on three sides and cut as per the video
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Square - cut in half diagonally to create two triangles (one for the top of the front)
Just Jade Designer Series Paper
3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square - mark at the 1 3/4" mark on three sides and cut as per the video (back piece)
2 1/4" x 2 1/4" square - cut diagonally to create two triangles (one triangle for the top of the front)
Sahara Sand Cardstock
Rope border piece die cut with Smoothly Sailing Dies
Anchor heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder and die cut with Smooth Sailing Dies
Pear Pizzazz Cardstock
Seaweed die cut with Smooth Sailing Dies
Copper Foil Sheet
Helm die cut with Smooth Sailing Dies
This fun bookmark is easy to assemble with Debbie's wonderful video here. The trickiest part is the scoring and cutting of the diagonal measurements, which you can do with the Paper Trimmer. I had so much fun decorating using the stamp images from the Sailing Home stamp set and creating the die cuts with the Smooth Sailing Dies. The Copper Foil and Copper embossing powder help step up the design without the need for ribbon or embellishments that might fall off or damage the book.  
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my bookmark inspires you to create your own vacation themed projects with the amazing products in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Stamping Friends Sneak Peeks July Blog Hop July-December Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration

Welcome to the Stamping Friends Sneak Peeks July Blog Hop as we showcase projects using products from the upcoming July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021 August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas to help inspire you. 
New catalogs means amazing new products and it was tough choosing which new products to use for my card design today. I decided to mix and match with the Delicate Dahlias stamp set from the 2021 August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I love how these products combine to add wonderful texture to this Summer Thank You card. To complete the card design, I chose to use my favorite Stitched So Sweetly Dies and Tailor Made Tags Dies to create the layers to frame the stamped images. The colors I chose included Bumblebee, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla with a touch of gold. 
Products Used:
Delicate Dahlias stamp set New Sale-a-bration (item #156601)
Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder New Mini Catalog 
(item #156505)
Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690)

Measurements:
Crumb Cake Cardstock
Card Base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (Scored at 4 1/4")
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Layer 1 - 4 1/4" x 5 3/8"
Focal Layer die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies

Soft Suede Cardstock
Large Label die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Tag and accent die cut with Tailor Made Tags Dies
I had so much fun playing with the images in the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. For the background, I chose the solid leaves and flower images to stamp a tone on tone design using Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Next I embossed the layer with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and then lightly sponged the raised areas with Crumb Cake Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. I attached the Pear Pizzazz layer to the Very Vanilla cardstock layer and then attached them to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. To create the focal layer, I stamped the solid large floral image with Bumblebee Classic ink onto the Very Vanilla label and then stamped the line image over the top with Soft Suede Classic ink. I layered it onto the scalloped rectangle label die cut from Soft Suede cardstock and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. For the sentiment label, I stamped the sentiment image with Pear Pizzazz Classic ink onto the Very Vanilla Tag and added the Soft Suede accent around the hole. I layered it onto the Soft Suede tag, slightly askew, and tied a piece of Linen Thread through the holes with a bow. I attached them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I added Gilded Gems to the focal layer and the Soft Suede tag to step up the design. While I chose colors that work for late Summer, you could easily change the look and feel of this card design by changing the colors to suit the season and person you want to receive it. Both the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder will be available beginning August 3rd and I would recommend adding them to your creative collection.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to explore these wonderful new catalogs to help you with your own creations. Both the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the 2021 August-September Sale-a-bration Catalog launch on August 3rd. The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is just one of the amazing Sale-a-bration products you can earn free with a qualifying order.

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. July Monthly Blog Hop as we showcase projects and ideas to celebrate Christmas In July. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects to help you get an early start on your Christmas projects.
The Tidings of Christmas Suite Collection in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is perfect for creating projects for Christmas in July. I love that it provides us with the supplies we need to create cards, tags and gifts in a collection of products that coordinate to make life easier. Today I am sharing a clean and simple Christmas card that showcases how beautifully these products combine and I just love how the new In Color, Evening Evergreen, looks with Cherry Cobbler. The detailed star die cut uses the beautiful new Gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold 6"x6" Metallic Specialty Paper and coordinates with the Gold embossing for the sentiment.

The Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper has such wonderful designs and I love the colors Stampin' Up! has chosen. I have used this paper pack a lot this past month to create Christmas cards and it is perfect for creating traditional Christmas cards. I chose to used Evening Evergreen cardstock for the card base and I used a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to help make the designer series paper pop. To frame the sentiment layer, I chose to use one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to give that wonderful scalloped edge and adds a nice contrast against the designer series paper. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set. I layered the detailed Gold star on top of the solid Cherry Cobbler star, both die cut with the Christmas Trimmings Dies, and attached it to the top left corner of the sentiment label to step up the card design. To finish off the card design, I added Gilded Gems for a touch of bling. This is a great layout to mass product as your Christmas card design for this year and you can mix and match with the other designs in this beautiful paper pack to create a variety of designs.  
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my Christmas card helps inspire you to explore the wonderful options available to you in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Now is a great time to create your cards for the holidays.
