Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop October 2021- FALL Theme- Pretty Pumpkins


 Welcome to the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the globe who do a blog hop together each month.  This month's theme is all about Fall.  We are glad you are here to join us.  We hope you gain some inspiration and creativity while you hop with us, and want to make some fall themed cards or items after hopping with us. You may have just came from Joy Nelson's blog and she shared a great fall project with us. 

I decided to use the Pretty Pumpkins Stamp set and dies for my fall themed card.  I paired it with the Beauty of the Earth DSP and I also used the Timber 3D embossing folder as well.  


My card base is a half a sheet of Merry Merlot cardstock and is cut at 5 1/2"x8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  My DSP layer is cut at 4"x5 1/4" and I then used the embossing folder to add some texture to it.  My second piece of DSP is cut at 2"x 5 1/4" and centered on the other piece of DSP to add some fall colors. I used my tombow glue to adhere these to my card base.  

I then took scraps of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot cardstock and cut out 3 pumpkins from the dies.  I interlinked them together using a couple of glue dots and then used mini dimensionals to pop them up on my DSP.  I added some Wink of Stella for some bling and then added a small double bow with some twine to the middle pumpkin.  

My sentiment is from the stamp set and I stamped it with Cinnamon Cider ink.  I fussy cut around it to not have so much white space.  I also adhered it with dimensionals as well. 

For the inside I used a piece of Basic White cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped my inside sentiment with Cinnamon Cider ink as well.  I also added a piece of the leaves DSP on the inside at the bottom and it measures 1"x 5 1/4".  

I hope you have enjoyed the card I shared with you today for my fall project.  Honestly it is kind of hard for me to do fall themed cards as I live in Florida where it is pretty much still summer out with our temperatures.  I hope you will hop along and complete the hop with us if you started with my blog.  You can click the next button below to arrive back at the beginning of the hop with Shirley Merker where she is showcasing a wonderful project.  You can also find the complete blog hop list below if you need to see whom you haven't visited.

Bruno & Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set October 2021

 

Hello and thank you for joining us on our blog hop today. We are so glad to have you join us.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training for our business from a fellow demonstrator Kylie Bertucci and her husband Bruno who live in Australia.  These monthly blog hops are themed for Thank You cards for our customers and team members. 

For my card I decided to use the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and paired it with the Strawberry Builder punch.  My card base is Poppy Parade cardstock and my layer of DSP is from the Host paper Pattern Party in the annual catalog. It is my favorite paper pack!  My die cut piece is from the Scalloped Contour Dies, another one of my favorites. 


I stamped the outside image of the strawberry in Poppy Parade, and the inside I used the same ink stamped off.  For the leaves I did Garden Green ink and used the same process as I did for the strawberry.  I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black Ink.  I colored a Basic Rhinestone with my Dark Poppy Parade Blend and added it to each strawberry and also used Wink of Stella on each of the berries as well. 



I also chose to decorate the inside of my card using a piece of Basic White cardstock and I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black Ink and my strawberries the same as I did on the front of the card.  I don't like naked insides on my card. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card I shared with you today, and I hope you will see the complete list of participants below and join us in our hope as we share our creativity and love for our products with you. You can find the complete blog hop list below so you can hop along with us.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop-September 2021-Happy Birthday Theme- Sharing Sunshine Stamp Set

 

Welcome to the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop for September where our theme is Happy Birthday!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world here to share our project with you so that you can gain inspiration and creativity.  You can hop along with us and build your wish list and then contact your demonstrator to order what you loved and must have.  You may have arrived from Maureen's blog and she shared a wonderful project with us this month.  

I have chosen to use the Sharing Sunshine stamp set to make my card for you today for a birthday card.  This is such a cute stamp set to make cards with.  My card base is Daffodil Delight and is cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored a 4 1/4".  My Melon Mambo layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  My DSP is from the hostess pack in the Annual Catalog and it cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  My next Daffodil Delight layer is cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" and then my Pool Party layer is 3" x 4".  I used the Dots from the Checks & Dots embossing folders on my Pool Party layer and then gave it some wink of stella shine.

I then took two scraps of Basic White card stock and used the Basic Borders dies and made two layers of clouds for my front smaller layers.  I used Pool Party Ink with a blending brush to give them some color before layering them on my front Pool Party layer.  My sunshine is cut from Daffodil Delight paper using the Layering Circle dies. Then stamped with Daffodil Delight, Memento Black and Melon Mambo inks and then glued on. 

I popped up the entire small front layer on the card using dimensionals after adding some Pool Party sheer ribbon across and after stamping my sentiment on the front of the clouds.  I then added some rhinestones to finish off the front.  This got put on the bigger layers of Melon Mambo and DSP that were added to the card base. 

For the inside I have a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black and then added the sunshine rays around it using Daffodil Delight!  

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope that you have gained some inspiration and creativity from me if you have this set. And if you don't perhaps I made you fall in love with it and you can order it through your demonstrator.  You can click the next button to go to XXX's blog from here and continue the hop to see what they have to share with you!

Technique Blog Hop- Crafty Collaborations- Scoring Techniques- Color & Contour Stamp Set

 

Thank you for joining us for our blog hop today! We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the globe who are here to share a project with you today to give you creativity and inspiration.  Technique Tuesday this week is featuring scoring as our technique! We hope you gain some inspiration and creativity on ways to use scoring in your card making!  Please contact your Demonstrator if you need to place an order after hopping with us and building your wish list. 

I am featuring the stamp set Color & Contour for my card that will feature a scoring technique.  I have chosen to do Simple Stamping, which is simply Stamps, Ink and Paper!  I started with a Thick Basic White card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  I then scored it 1/2", 3/4", 1" and 1 1/4" on the opposite of what would be my card front so the outer indent after scoring stood out on the front of my card.  I went from the bottom of the card base in my trimmer.  I hope that makes sense.  It just gives a nice detail to the card front as there is no layers on this card, just a simple stamping card. 


I then stamped my sentiment in the bottom right of my card front in Memento Black Ink.  I then added three flowers to my card, using Highland Heather and Bumblebee ink.  For the inside I stamped off first before adding it.  I then stamped some leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink to finish off my card front.  You could always add some bling if you want or ribbon but I decided to keep this one simple for new beginners. 

For the inside I stamped my sentiment in Memento Black Ink and then added the splatter stamp from the set in Highland Heather Ink across it.  I like how it turned out.  


I hope you enjoyed my project I shared for you today and learned a new technique for scoring. It doesn't always have to be for our card bases and fun folds.  It can just add to a card front and be a simple addition. I hope you will hop all the way through our hop!  The complete list is below.
