Bloom & Grow -Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Support Program Blog Hop November 2020

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Blog Hop! As you follow the hop.

I hope you find lots of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in a training program helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® Business and reach some of our goals. Thank you, we really appreciate your support.

Our theme is ‘Thank You’ to our wonderful customers for supporting our Stampin’ Up! business.

For this project I used Boom & Grow Stamp set and paired it up with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

  

This is a very simple and quick card to make if your wanting to make a number of cards.

The In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is a patterned paper and gives a great base to work from. Stampin’ Up! ® have used textures in this range of DSP rather than patterns like timbers, tiles, fabrics and ‘Gesso’ such as I have used in my card today. This allows you to stamp on the paper easily to add extra texture.

 

How to make this card…

  • Card Base Thick Whisper White Cardstock – 21 x 14.9cm, score at 10.5cm
  • Mat  Rococo Rose – 9.8 x 14.2cm
  • Card Front DSP – 9.5 x 13.9cm
  • Whisper White – 10.5 x 14.9cm

  • Card Front DSP – Stamp the sentiment randomly over the DSP making sure to stamp off onto scrap paper to start with. This is called ‘Second Generation Stamping’ because your not using full strength ink.
  • Adhere the DSP to the Rococo Rose Mat using either Seal or Multi Purpose Glue.
  • Attach the mat to the Whisper White Thick card base with either Seal or Multi Purpose Glue.
  • On to the Whisper White cardstock stamp the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black  and stamp the sentiment in full strength ink – Rococo Rose.
  • Colour the flowers using Sponge Daubers don’t worrying about staying in the lines. Colours used were – Rococo Rose, Purple Posy, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. Pounce the colour lightly onto the flower then go back and darker the centers. With the Purple Posy Flower I went back and added Gorgeous Grape in the center. Use the edge of the Daubers to colour the leaves. I added a little Rococo Rose onto the buds.
  • Die cut your flowers with the coordinating dies – Budding Blooms.
  • Cut 2 x 12cm lengths of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon,place one on top of the other & tie a knot in the middle. Cut all the ends at an angle.
  • Using the Everyday Label Punch, punch out the sentiment.Using the Sponge Dauber sponge around the label to soften the edges. Adhere the Label to your card front using Seal.
  • Add a glue dot onto the ribbon knot and attach to the back of the die cut flowers. Place dimensionals on the back of the flowers and adhere to the card front.

Dandy Garden Project Collection – International Blog Highlights November 2020

Hi and welcome to my Blog.

‘Thank you’ – Dandy Garden Project Collection

My card I have to show you today is a sneak peak of whats coming……This beautiful collection won’t be available for a little while but let me wet your apatite a little! 

The Dragonfly was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Blends – Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray, Mango Melody and Crumb Cake. The floral images was stamped in Crumb Cake onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and the sentiment in Misty Moonlight.

With in the die cut oval is a wash of colour in Misty Moonlight and Granny Apple Green. Created using Blends onto Vellum with alcohol to help the inks blend. Watch my YouTube Video to see this piece being created.

Behind the sentiment is Misty Moonlight Ribbon and Linen Thread. The Linen Thread I have split and only used one strand out of the three, this just gives it that little bit of interest with out over powering it.

I hope this has wet your taste bubs to what is to come in the following months.

Robert is 21 – his Fun Card

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Robert is 21..Woo hooo!

My son, Robert, turned 21 and we went out to dinner to celebrate on Saturday night. We went to a lovely place in Moss Vale called the ‘Southern Highlands Brewery & Taphouse’.

The ‘Taphouse’ is a old building from 1897 and was called Tooses Stores ,the old sign above the shop is still there and adds to the character of the building. The front facade is very Art Deco with beautiful glass windows.

We had a wonderful night celebrating and sharing a meal and Birthday Cake made by Lee Lee’s Cupcakes. Love the Topper she made for the cake and I had to follow that through with his Birthday Card…

My son has taken up photography as a hobby…so of course we had to have a lens or shutter theme.

How to make this card.

  • Using an image from Clip Art of a shutter – print to required size
  • Card Front Basic Black – Attached printed Clip Art to a piece of Basic Black cardstock using a re-positional adhesive.
  • Cut out the sections to be filled with DSP. You can do this by using  a craft knife on glass. I have a video about how to cut using this method of cutting on my YouTube Channel HERE.
  • Using 6 x 6″ Designer Series Paper – Brights 152487, I traced out the shapes and cut out larger but making sure the inner curve was only above 2mm larger.
  • Each piece was adhered on the back using ‘sticky tape’ this allowed me to move them if need be…and I moved sections a lot.
  • Card front was then cut down to 9.7 x 14.1cm
  • Card mat Brushed Mettallic Cardstock – 10 x 14.4cm, adhere card front to the mat using Seal+.
  • Card Base Basic Black Cardstock – 10.5 x 29.8cm, scored at 10.5cm. Attach card front to card base with Multi Purpose glue.

 

  • Adhere a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Brushed Mettallic Cardstock.
  • Withe the numbers 2 & 1from the Playful Alphabet Dies 152706 run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Peel off the backing and attach to the front of the card.
  • Card Insert Whisper White – 10 x 14.4cm. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set 148618.
  • Each letter colour with Stampin’ Write Markers – Brights147157 & Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker 100082 (sold separately). Breath on the inked image and stamp
  • Adhere the Whisper White insert into the inside of the card.

Robert loved his card….

    All is Merry & Bright… using the Peace & Joy Bundle

    Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

    All is Merry and Bright

    This brings to mind twinkling lights and lots of tinsel and everyone happy and having a wonderful time…oh’ I LOVE Christmas!

    My card today is not covered in tinsel and twinkling light but it does have the tradition colours of Christmas and the bright sparkly of gold.

    For my card today I have used the Peace and Joe Bundle along with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper, which is on SALE until the end of October. You can find the link below.

    How to Make this card…

    • Real Red Card Base – Cut 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
    • Mossy Meadow Mat – 10 x 14.4cm
    • Mossy Meadow Spot Designer Series Paper (DSP)- 7.5 x 9.7cm
    • Strip Designer Series Paper – 7.5 x 9.7cm
    • Vellum – 9 x 12.5cm, die cut with Scalloped die Die No: 6 (see pic below)
    • Whisper White cardstock -7 x 10 cm die cut with Scalloped die Die No: 4 (see pic below)
    • Emboss the die cut Whisper White with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder 152702
    • Brushed Metallic Cardstock – 4 x 11cm – adhere Adhesive sheet on the back before die cutting the word ‘Bright’. When peeling apart the die and Cardstock make sure you don’t loose the dot of the ‘i’…If you do then use a Rhinestone Jewel as the dot.
    • Whisper White Card Insert – 10 14.4cm.

    How!

    • Using Multi-purpose glue adhere the Mossy Meadow spot DSP to the Moss Meadow mat allowing 1.5 mm around top and sides.
    • Adhere the DSP Strip to the bottom of the mat lining it up with the spot DSP along the sides and with 1.5mm around sides and bottom. The strips will overlap the spots.
    • Adhere the mat to the card front with either Seal or Multi-purpose glue
    • Peel the backing of the adhesive on the word ‘Bright’ carefully and attach to Whisper White Panel. Make sure that the part of the cross on the ‘T’ is attached to the panel, as in my photo above.
    • Turn the panel over to the back, the words that over hang are sticky from the adhesive. Pat them down with your embossing Buddy or a small amount of corn flower. This just removes the sticky.
    • Place dimensionals on the back of the Whisper White die cut & embossed panel and adhere onto the Vellum.
    • Add some Multi-purpose glue to the back of the vellum where the Whisper white covers it and glue to the card front.
    • On a scrao of Whisper White cardstock stamp the words ‘Merry’ & ‘And’ using Real Red Ink. Cut out by hand and adhere to card front using the Mini Dimensionals
    • Add some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to your card
    • Attach the Whisper White Insert to the inside of the card

    Joy to the World

     

    Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

    Joy to the World

    This is heading into my favorite time of the year…Where we celebrate the Birth of Christ and what JOY that brings of Salvation and Hope.

    My card today I have used products from the Peace and Joy Bundle 155167. This card is a slim line card, the finished card measures 10 x 21 cm (cut 20 x21cm, score 10cm). This is a simple card to make with the only stamping on the label.

    Here I used a Label die from the Stitched Nested Labels as the base for sentiment to sit on. The sentiment is ‘Joy – to the World’ and for the ‘Joy’ I used all the 3 dies from the Bundle. The beautiful Red Velvet Paper was used for the fine word die and I used the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Red Velvet and the Whisper White die cut – to make adhering them together a breeze.

     

    TIP – Once you have adhered all the 3 parts of ‘Joy” together place it onto of the Whisper White Label and lightly trace around it. This way you have an idea where you need to stamp. Shown here from another project made using the same Dies. The pencil line then can be rubbed away using a soft eraser.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Products used in this card are…

    • Peace and Joy Bundle 155167
    • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper 153486
    • Red Velvet Paper Pack 153490
    • Real Red 3/16″ (4.8 MM) Braided Linen Trim 153546
