Kylie's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop November 2022

I am so happy that you are joining me today to hop along with Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for my card earlier this month and helping me to achieve this wonderful honor. You will have the opportunity to visit with Kylie Bertucci and the Top 10 Winners for November as they share wonderful new projects with the theme "Thank You". This amazing group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world, will help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects to show your appreciation for the people in your life.
Today I decided to create my card design with the Splendid Thoughts Bundle and coordinating Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. It's hard to believe that these products will be retiring next month, so I decided to show them some love before they disappear. One of my favorite things about these products is that they work well for occasions throughout the year and the gorgeous foil designs in the designer series paper help to create elegant project designs. I decided to combine the pretty foil design with the coordinating reverse side of the designer series paper to create this elegant Thank You card.

This elegant card design may look complicated but it is really quite simple to assemble. The great thing about this card design is that the detailed die cut pieces have been cut from the same sheet of designer series paper as the card front. I attached the four detailed corners to each of the corners of the card front and attached it to the Calypso card base. For the detailed frame, I attached it using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the top and bottom of the frame, centering it in the middle of the card front. To create the stems, I stamped the outline image twice and then stamped the coordinating leaves image to add depth and dimension, using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink. Note that the leaves image doesn't line up with the outline image, so don't worry about trying to get it perfectly aligned. I attached the Soft Sea Foam half circle die cut so that it lines up inside the bottom of the frame and attached it using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I did trim about 1/4" off the bottom edge of the half circle for my design, but you can choose to use the full die cut if you wish. Once I die cut the leaves with the coordinating die, I attached them underneath the top of the half circle using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind several of the leaves. For the detailed stem, I added it on top of the Soft Sea Foam leaves, centering it to complete the design. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Go To Greetings stamp set using Copper embossing powder to coordinate with the foil details. I added it to the card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, centering it on top of the frame and half circle. To complete the card design, I added several small Iridescent Pearls, that I colored with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Marker, to the sentiment label and card front for a touch of bling. This is not a color combination that I would normally choose to create with and I really love how it turned out. The great thing about Stampin' Up! designer series paper is that it provides you with a range of coordinating colors to help you create your own beautiful projects and takes the stress out of creating.
