Paper Crafting Blog Hop Featuring Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Corner Bouquet





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. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing products from Sale-A-Bration.

You may have arrived from Julie Mazur's blog, wasn't her project great! 




When I first saw the Corner Bouquet stamp set I thought it would be perfect on a triple layer card. Then I put it in the drawer as there were other stamp sets I wanted to create with first. Now it’s getting it’s turn out of the box and I was right, this set was made for the card I had in mind. 

I mounted the corner bouquets on my Stamp-a-ratus (stampasaurus for those who know me well, LOL) because I wanted to make sure I got a good solid inking. I used Whisper White cardstock because I have a good supply of it on hand, but am looking forward to getting some of the new Basic White, which I hear is brighter. 

My base is Rocco Rose cardstock with the matting layers of Love You Always Designer Series Paper in the Rocco Rose pattern. 

Paper Sizes:
The card base is 1/2 sheet of A4 cardstock, scored at 4 1/4” and cut at 5 1/2”.
3 white layers: one of each size - 5 1/4” X 4”; 4 1/4” X 3”; and 3 1/4” X 2”
3 Designer Series Paper layers: one of each size - 5 1/2” X 4 1/4”; 4 1/2” X 3 1/4”, and 3 1/2” X 2 1/4”

Inside: 
5 1/4” X 4” Lovey You Always DSP
5” X 3 3/4” White 

Stack the 3 white cards, I used a bit of Seal in the middle to hold them together while I stamped, I “destickified” it a little by touching it several times but even if the tape did a little damage to the layer below it will be covered up. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink twice, pressing to get good coverage.






After adhering the stamped images to the mat layer I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the bottom two layers to the card base. On the top layer I used the stamp Hello Friend sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set and stamped using Rocco Rose ink. I knotted the Fine Art glimmer ribbon onto it and adhered the layers with dimensionals.

Good news - both stamp sets, Corner Bouquet and A Touch of Ink are Sale-A-Bration free sets. Sale-A-Bration ends February 28, 2021 so you still have time to order. I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and that you’ll make one yourself. 

I'm the last blog in the list. The Next button below will take you to the start of our hop, Shirley Merker, just in case you started at another blog. You will also find a link for all the blogs in the hop at the end.

Kylie's Demonstrator Support Program Blog Hop February 2021



Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. 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.

Our them is Thank You cards for our customers this month and I was inspired by the Free Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper, Flower and Field. 


Cards all ready to send in February. The Flower and Field (a free Sale-A-Bration reward for a $50 order) is 6" x 6". I created a template and marked 2" in on each side. I think this is a case of a picture is worth 1,000 words so I'll attach the step by step pictures.


It's not a complicated process to cut these pieces, just a bit hard to put into words. If you have questions please contact me, I'm happy to try to explain.

Next I embossed basic white cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered the Designer Series Paper to the card.

A Just Jade ribbon and the Thank You sentiment from Heal Your Heart (also a Sale-A-Bration item) complete the front which is adhered to a basic black cardbase.

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from the United Kingdom, Australia and the USA. We hope you enjoy the fun projects and design styles from this talented group. You may have arrived from Julie Mazur's blog, isn't her project fabulous!

For me, it was love at first sight with the Fine Art Floral Suite-stamps, dies, designer series paper, embossing folder, ribbon and so much more - wow! There is so much texture in the designer series paper and the colors are inspiring! You could choose any of the designs, here is a sampler for you to enjoy:

I stamped the flower using Poppy Parade ink onto white cardstock, using first generation ink on the detail stamp and second generation ink for the main image. I cut it out using the die then spritzed it with a mixture of Champagne Shimmer Paint mixed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. A picture can't do it justice!  I also stamped the leaf using Mossy Meadow Ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut it with the die, then decided it also needed some sparkle so used Wink of Stella. 


Next I stamped my sentiment from the FREE (I do like free!) Sale-A-Bration set Heal Your Heart on Poppy Parade cardstock with VersaMark and used White embossing powder.  I used the Story Label Punch to cut it out. My card base is Mossy Meadow with a layer of gold foil and then the designer series paper layer. I used the Story Label punch to cut a piece from the gold foil to back the sentiment.

The Designer Series Paper is 4" X 5 1/4", Gold Foil is 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder added texture to the designer series paper(DSP) . After attaching the DSP to the Gold Foil I tied the Fine Art 3/8" ribbon with a square knot instead of a bow. Adhere to the Mossy Meadow card base. Add the remaining elements of your card with dimensionals - sentiment, flower, stem.

 

The insert and envelope have strips of DSP on them. 

Thank you for joining us on our blog hop. Click on next blog to visit Maureen Rauchfus and see the fun project she has designed.
