Journey to Silver Elite Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us for our Journey to Silver Elite 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 working together to help each other build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach 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!

I created a get well card in the style inspired by Sandra Roberts and her 'Jigsaw Style" card. This is a great card layout when you want to use some of your bits and pieces of designer series paper (DSP). 

Our theme this month is something old (carried over from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog), something new (from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog) and a new 2021-23 In Color.

My Carry over item is the Oval Occasions Double Punch, my new item is the Hand Penned Suite which features our 2021-23 In Colors, and my in-colors are Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.

Here's all my supplies assembled and ready to use.

I cut the cardstock and designer series paper according to this chart:

Assembly Directions:
* Emboss Pale Papaya Cardstock with the Ornate Flower 3D Embossing Folder
* Adhere to cardbase using multipurpose glue
* Assemble your cardstock and DSP pieces, these are glued to the card front, the middle piece is adhered with dimensionals. 
*The sentiment is stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White and punched out with the Double Oval Punch, then adhered to the center raised section
* The flower is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Designer Series Paper and cut using the die
* Leaves are colored with Evening Evergreen Blends and Wink of Stella is liberally applied to the flower then is adhered with seal to the sentiment. 
* The inside is a Soft Succulent Layer with 1/2" DSP strips on the left and right sides.
* Envelope flap is decorated with DSP and a matching 1/2" DSP strip is glued to the front.

I hope you enjoy this style card and are inspired to try it yourself!

  9. You have just started a new job and are required to pass a drug test. It’s an all-too-common circumstance. You are unsure if the weed you smoked a few days ago might affect the result, and you need to find out different methods to get thc out of your system as soon as possible. There’s a good chance a drug test will identify the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in your system if you’ve recently smoked a cannabis strain high in THC. It can be found in urine, blood, and hair follicles. EDTA is a colorless, water-soluble compound that aids in the dissolution of ions and limescale Visit:
