Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop- August 2022- Congratulations Theme

 

Hello and thank you for joining us for our Blog Hop this month. This month our theme is Congratulations with Designer Series Paper (DSP) being the spotlight.  We are happy you are joining us. We are a group of Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the globe that hop together each month!  You may have arrived from Maureen's blog. She made a wonderful project to share with us. 

My card features the Splendid Day Specialty DSP. My card base is Early Espresso and is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". The DSP is cut at 4 x 12" and then scored at 2 1/2, 7 3/4 and 10 3/4". This allows the DSP to be the spotlight and have both sides showcased.  The inside white piece is cut at 3 3/4 x 5". My sentiments came from the Happiness Abounds stamp set. 

I used the Bough Punch and cut out pieces in Soft Sea Foam, Vellum and Gold to place behind my sentiment strip. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today spotlighting DSP! I hope you will hop all along with us to see everyone's projects and gain some inspiration and creativity. Simply click the next button below to hop along to the next blog.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop- June 2022-Sympathy Theme

 

Hello and thank you for joining us for our Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop. Sympathy is a the theme this month. We are a group of Global Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the globe bringing you great inspiration and ideas.  We hope you will hop along and complete the hop with us. You may have arrived from Maureen's blog, and what a wonderful project she shared with us. Sympathy cards are for me personally difficult to make. I don't tend to make a bunch of them. Instead I make these as needed. 



I used the brand new Sending Smiles bundle for my card this month. I chose to use Smokey Slate for my color, and keep this card monochromatic. I used the Neutrals 6x6 Designer Series paper as well, and also used the Scalloped and Contour dies.  I also used the brand new Iridescent Pearls, but colored them with my Smokey Slate blends. 

For the inside I used Basic White cardstock and added a flower image. I know it does not leave a ton of space to write, but I don't feel sympathy cards need a ton of room for writing. 


I hope you have enjoyed my card I made for this blog. Clock on the next button below to be taken to the next hop stop, which is Shirley. Her projects are always wonderful. Thanks for hopping with us this month and I hope you enjoyed it.

Hello and thank you for stopping by the Ink & Inspiration blog hop for May 2022. You are currently visiting Krissi Hannahs blog from the USA; I am located in the panhandle area of Florida where summer is definitely here!  I hope you will hop along with the hop and gain some ideas for creativity and inspiration based on a color challenge or we could use the image provided to create as well. Here is the challenge photo we were given in order to become creative and inspired! 


I have chosen to use the colors provided for my card today! I hope you will enjoy it. I used all of the colors that are listed in the photo above along with Basic White for my neutral color!  I layered it with a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and my base layer is Basic White!  The die sets I used for this card are the Beautiful Shapes Dies and the Amazing Thanks Dies. I actually did no stamping on this card!!! 


I hope you like my card and how I used the picture for inspiration for the color challenge. Please feel free to hop along with the entire Hop to see how everyone else did as well! Thank you so much for stopping by today! We hop each month with different themes and color challenges!

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. Click the link below to be taken to Shirley's blog, where she will show us another great masculine card.  The entire Hop list is also listed below so you can follow along that way 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.

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.
