Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop-Masculine Theme- Waves of Inspiration

 

Thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators from around the globe that participate monthly in a themed blog hop. This provides you inspiration and creativity from all around the world.  Our theme this month is Masculine cards, which for me can be hard to make. So this will push me out of my comfort zone a bit. You may have come from Julia's blog, and she shared a wonderful project with us! We hope you will make the complete hop with us and leave some comments, although those aren't required. 


I decided to use the Waves of Inspiration stamp set for my Masculine themed card. My card base is Night of Navy and is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  My Sahara Sand layer is cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  My Basic White layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for both outside and inside layers.  To get my multi-colored wave I first inked the Wave up in Bermuda Bay ink, and then taking a sponge dauber added some Night of Navy ink to the edges to make the wave two-toned and more real looking.  It reminds me of the water here in Florida at times.  I did the same thing with the pelican, inking first in Sahara Sand and then adding some Soft Suede with a dauber to give some dimension. The layers for the pelican are Sahara Sand cut at 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" and the Basic White is cut at 2 1/8" x 3 5/8". I popped this up using dimensionals after adding some Bakers twine around the bottom.  To finish off the front I added a few of the Brushed Metallic Dots and my sentiment and birds are stamped using Night of Navy. 

For the inside I simply stamped my sentiment on Basic White using Night of Navy and added a few more of the birds. 


I hope you enjoyed my version of a masculine card this month. Hopefully you will gain some inspiration and creative ideas throughout the rest of this hop as well.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop May 2022- Daffodil Daydream

 

Thank you for joining us today for another monthly blog hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators from around the globe that bring you creativity each month with this blog hop. Our theme for this month is flowers, so I decided to play with the Daffodil Daydream stamp set and Daffodil Dies for my card.  You may have arrived from Julia Quinn's blog, she shared a wonderful project with us as well!



My card base is Pale Papaya cardstock and is cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My first layer is Calypso Coral and is cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I ran it through the Stitched Greenery die.  I then used Pale Papaya and Basic White and cut out two dies from the Scalloped Countours dies.  I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo black ink and die cut it out. I used Stampin' Blends to color in Granny Apple Green, Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral. I popped this up with Dimensionals and added some wink of stella and stamped my greeting and added some Basic Rhinestones!



For the inside I simply stamped the border images from the stamp set at the bottom of my Basic White layer that is cut at 4" x 5 1/4". 



Thank you for stopping by my blog post today. I hope you will complete the hop with us and go full circle to gains lots of creative ideas using flowers! You can simply click the icon below to be taken to the next blog stop in the hop.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop- SAB Theme-Sunshine & Rainbows DSP

 


Hello and thank you for joining the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop for February 2022! We are excited that you are joining us. We are a group of international Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world who share our creativity with you each month.  This month our theme is still Sale-A-Bration as we are in the final 2 weeks of it. But our twist is it has to be anything but a card, which still leaves plenty of options. You may have arrived from Mickey's blog, and she shared a fantastic project with us today. 

For my project I am featuring the Sunshine & Rainbows 6x6 Designer Series Paper, which is a Level 1 reward for Sale-A-Bration in all markets.  I normally don't do much besides cards and the gift packaging ideas we sell in our catalogs, but this time I went outside my comfort zone. 

I took several of the patterns and made what is called the Diaper Fold, and the best part is it requires NO adhesive at all.  This is a really simple way to showcase our wonderful designer series paper to make up some really small treat pouches for a table decoration or just as a gift to hand out to random people at the store when out and about as an act of kindness.  I found several videos on YouTube showing how to create these, and the best part is you can use really any size paper you want to. Here are the few I made up for the Blog Hop today. A couple small pieces of chocolate inside will be sure to brighten anyone's day! 



I hope you have enjoyed my Sale-A-Bration theme project that is not a card!  I hope that you will hop along with the rest of the Hop and gain more inspiration on how to use these FREE Sale-A-Bration items for more than just making cards.  Click the next button below to be taken to Shirley's blog where another great project awaits. 



Below you will find a complete list of hoppers in case you aren't sure where to go next.

Stamping With Friends Blog Hop- Monochromatic Card Theme

 


Thank you for joining us today for the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop where we are featuring a Monochromatic card theme.  This means you use as much as the same one color as possible.  We are Stampin' Up! ® Independent demonstrators from around the world who are here to show you our inspiration of this theme.  


I have chosen to use the Calming Camellia stamp set which is the FREE hostess set in the Sale-A-bration brochure through the end of February 2022.  My chosen color for my monochromatic theme is Gorgeous Grape with just a touch of Basic White for stamping purposes.  I also added a bit of the new Layering Designs Vellum from the mini catalog for a pop of texture somewhat.  

For my card base in gorgeous grape I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4". I then cut another piece of Gorgeous Grape at 4" x 5 1/4" and  I stamped the largest flower image all over the background in Gorgeous Grape ink.  I then layered a piece of the sheer Gorgeous Grape ribbon around this piece.  I adhered this to my card base. 

My next layer of Gorgeous Grape paper is cut at 3" x 3 1/2" and layered with a piece of Basic White that is 2 7/8" x 3 3/8 and stamped the large image in Gorgeous Grape ink.  I then adhered these together and added a strip of that vellum that I tore along the right side and attached this whole layer with dimensionals to the base pieces.  


For the inside I used a piece of Basic White that measure 4" x 51/4" and stamped my sentiment and image in the lower right corner in again Gorgeous Grape ink. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today and found some inspiration to make one similar with a stamp set you have on hand and the color of you choice. Please continue hopping along with us by clicking the next button below to go to the next blog. 

Below you have find the complete Blog Hop List for your pleasure as well. I hope you will hop with us and gain some inspiration and ideas to make your own Monochromatic card.

Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop- Daffodil Daydream Bundle

 

Thank you for joining us today for the Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop.  This hop allows us to share any project we have created recently and doesn't have a set theme. We are Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world here to bring you inspiration and share our creativity with you. 

I chose to use the brand new Daffodil Daydream Bundle from the new mini catalog and paired it with the FREE Daffodil Afternoon DSP from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  My card base Flirty Flamingo, and then I have a piece of Basic Black and DSP as layers. I then cut out a die from the Scalloped Contour Dies for my daffodils and sentiment in Very Vanilla.  

I stamped my Daffodil image and butterfly with Memento Black ink and die cut them out using the coordinating dies. I then used my Stampin' Blends to color in my images.  I used light and dark Daffodil Delight and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Granny Apple Green.  

For my inside I added a layer of Very Vanilla and stamped my sentiment and image from the stamp set in Memento Black ink.

Stamping With Friends Blog Hop- Valentine's Day- Sweet Conversation Stamp Set

 




Thank you for joining all of us Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators for a blog hop today. This is the Stamping With Friends blog hop and we are showcasing Valentine's Day for this hop today.  I am choosing to use the Sweet Conversation Stamp Set which is part of the Sweet Talk Suite in the Mini catalog and can be found on pages 8-10.  It is such a cute suite of products. You may have arrived from Karen Egan's blog and she shared a fantastic project with us, great job Karen. 


I decided to keep my card simple, just stamps, ink, paper and some ribbon.  My card base is Thick Basic white cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  My layer is a piece or basic white cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  I stamped my rainbow of hearts across the middle of the layer.  My ink colors are all from the brights collection and are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape. My sentiment is stamped in Memento Black. I then spritzed with my Black Stampin' Write marker and my wink of Stella as well. To finish off the card, I used the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon which carried over from the holiday catalog. 

For the inside I simply stamped my sentiment in Memento Black.
