Demonstrator Training January Blog Hop

It's a cold, snowy day here in Colorado, which is a perfect reason to stay inside and create beautiful cards to share as part of the Demonstrator Training January Blog Hop. You will have the opportunity to visit with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help spark your creativity. Our theme is Thank You and Congratulations cards to share with the people in our lives. 
When the weather is cold and dreary, I love to make bright and cheerful cards to help brighten people's days. There is nothing like getting happy mail to bring a smile to someone's face. For my Thank You card today, I chose to use this pretty pattern from the Sunny Days Designer Series Paper, which is a Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward you can earn free with a qualifying order. I love this sweet cherry design and I wanted it to be the star of the show, so I chose to use the Perennial Postage Bundle to create a simple sentiment label. I don't use Poppy Parade very often, but I love how bold and bright it looks with this design.

This is such a fun card design and simple to create. For the sentiment, I chose to stamp the image from the Perennial Postage stamp set onto Basic White cardstock with Shaded Spruce Classic ink to coordinate with the colors in the designer series paper. I die cut the sentiment with one of the Perennial Postage Dies and then layered it onto a Poppy Parade die cut with the die one size larger. I added two pieces of the Sweet Sorbet Bordered Ribbon across the middle of the card front and added the sentiment label on top with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. For a touch of bling, I used some Pretty Peacock Gems from the Tinsel Gems Four Pack to complete the design. You may have noticed that the Sweet Sorbet Ribbon and Pretty Peacock Gems are a close match to Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce and it's a good reminder that you can mix and match products to help you design your cards and projects.
