Kylie Bertucci Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - June 2021

  

/

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! I hope you find ideas and creative inspiration as you visit all of the blogs. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. We really appreciate your support!

In our busy world it is sometimes difficult to remember to send thank you cards! By preparing cards early in the month we’ve got them on had to send to customers. It feels great to be prepared!


 

I absolutely love the Sand and Sea Dies - I used the large one as my focal image. The Pearlescent Specialty Paper has a lovely shimmer. It is more ivory than white or vanilla so I chose Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock for my base. 


All the bits and pieces are ready to go: Notice the inside is Very Vanilla cardstock adhered to a slightly larger piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I added a strip of the Sand and Sea Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the bottom then adhered to the inside of my card.

The front focal piece is Night of Navy cardstock with the Sand and Sea DSP adhered with Seal adhesive. I used Pearescent Specialty Paper for the die cut; first I cut it out then embossed it with the Seashell 3D Embossing folder. I decided the seashells could use a little sparkle so applied Wink of Stella liberally. I took a picutre, hoping it will show up a little. 


The Thank You sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and is stamped with Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut another piece out of a Night of Navy cardstock scrap to put behind the sentiment. 

Time to assemble: 

Adhere the seashell focal piece to the DSP for the front. I put a strip of Very Vanilla Scalloped Ribbon across the top, adhering the sides to the back of the Night of Navy cardstock. Using dimensionals, adhere to the card front. 

I adhered the sentiment to the Night of Navy die cut with multipurpose glue. Added dimensionals to the back on the corners to adhere over the ribbon. The sentiment is very stable adhered to the cardstock and ribbon instead of only the ribbon.

I added a bow beside the sentiment and lots of Rhinestone Gems.

Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights - June 2021 Tower Card


Thank you so much for stopping today! 

What fun for me to participate in this event organized by Kylie Bertucci. I’ve created a Tower Card, inspired by Susan Kalatarian, who was inspired by Mary Deatherage. Hopefully, you will be inspired to create this fun fold card.

To vote for my card, please click here, I am number 18.


Although this card is not hard to create, it is hard to explain. I shared this on a Facebook Live a few weeks ago and am adding the video.

Paper Crafter Blog Hop

 


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. Our theme this month is Thinking of  You Guy. I hope you are enjoying yourself and finding inspiration.

A friend’s father recently was ill,  so I went to my card stash to pick out a card to send and realized most of my cards are full of glitter and gems. I decided this blog hop theme was exactly what I need to work on - guy cards!




I started with the new suite - Beauty of the Earth. This suite immediately caught my attention because it features trees! 

I began with a Thick Basic White cardbase. I scored a full sheet of cardstock at 4 1/4” and cut at 5 1/2”, I folded on the score line, burnished with my bone folder, and I was ready to go!

From the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (DSP) I chose three of the designs. The mottled green became the tree top, the blue sky with white clouds became the background (this is cut 4” X 5 1/4”) and the brown tree bark for the tree. 

I applied an adhesive sheet to the tree bark DSP and cut the tree trunk and branches.


From a scrap of Early Espresso cardstock I tore a piece for the ground. Adhere this to the sky DSP and add the tree trunk and branches.

I made two cards, one I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the leaves, after cutting from the mottled green and bumblebee DSP. The second I used the Foam Adhesive Sheet. I preferred using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I thought the sky needed something and remembered the stamp set Sailing Home has birds. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 



A 3 1/2” piece of our Faux Suede Ribbon and the sentiment complete the front. Adhere to the front of your card base using dimensionals or the foam adhesive sheet. 

For the inside, I sued Old Olive Ink and the two step stamp to stamp on Basic White cardstock (4” X 5 1/4”). Since I was using the one color ink I chose to stamp one with second generation ink, the other full strength. 


The sentiment is stamped using Early Espresso ink.

The card isn’t really done until the envelope has been decorated. I repeated the stamping in Old Olive on the envelope front and the flap.

The Next button below will take you to the next stop on our hop, but just in case you started at another blog. You will also find a link for all the blogs in the hop at the end.
