Global Share Fair Blog Hop October 2021- CASEing the Tutorial- Christmas to Remember


Hello and welcome to the Global SU Share Fair Blog Hop today. We are a group of international Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators from around the world who are are part of the Global SU Share Fair group on Facebook and we've decided today to do a blog hop together. We are CASEing a card from our January 2021 customer tutorial, but putting a holiday twist on our cards.  You may be starting at my blog or you have just arrived from Terri's blog and she shared a wonderful project with us!  

I am using the Christmas To Remember stamp set for my card, and pairing it with the Tidings of Christmas DSP to put a holiday twist on Joy Nelson's card from the January tutorial.   Her card is featured below.

This is an interlocking gate fold card. My card base is Cherry Cobbler.  You will need 2 pieces of DSP for the two panels. My Evening Evergreen layers(2) are dies from the Switched So Sweetly dies. The Soft Succulent layers you will need two of and also of the DSP.  All of these layers are put together using Tombow liquid glue.  My Evening Evergreen label is also cut from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I heat embossed my sentiment with Silver embossing powder.  This label is popped up with dimensions on the top panel.  My bottom panel I added a Wonderful Snowflakes from the mini catalog and also used the holly dies from Merriest Frames dies as well.  I adhered these to the panel using glue dots. 

To adhere these panels to the front of the card I used dimensionals.  However you only want dimensionals on the side of the panel so you don't glue your card shut.  The top panel has dimensionals only on right side and bottom on left side. You will want to measure how far over to put them so they don't show or glue your card shut!  I placed panel on card and then counted the notches in my dies to see where to stop. Just a quick tip!

My inside layer is Basic White.  I stamped my sentiment in Evening Evergreen.  I added some DSP to the bottom. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card today for this blog hop. It was really fun to CASE Joy's card and put a holiday twist on it.  I hope that you will continue to hop along with us and complete the hop to gain some inspiration and creative ideas to use in your own craft space.  By clicking the link badge below you will be taken to Nancy's blog where she has a great project waiting for us. 

The complete BLOG HOP LIST is below in case you are not sure where to go next! 

We have another Global SU Fair Share coming up on November 5th and 6th depending on your time zone and country.  If you found my blog by chance and want to become a customer of mine I would love to invite you to this Facebook group so that you can join us. 

Thanks again for hopping with us! We hope you enjoyed it.

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.
