Welcoming the New, Cherishing the Old

Welcome to the Journey to Silver Elite Blog Hop featuring ideas from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have reached Silver status and are working towards Silver Elite.  If you’ve been following along, you are coming to me from Jane’s blog. We all were challenged to incorporate one new item from the current annual catalog, one carryover item from the just retired 2020-2021 annual catalog, and a new In Color item. I hope you like what you see during the hop and feel inspired to create.

For my card, I decided to keep it simple. I used the Pansy Patch stamp set and the coordinating Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (DSP). I incorporated the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack which carried over from the last catalog. The ribbon I used coordinates well with Soft Succulent which is used in the DSP and in the stamped sentiment. I added a little sparkle by using three Genial Gems to finish the card. The one thing that keeps me using Stampin’ Up! products is the ease of color coordination in the DSP!

Below, after the list of participating Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, you will find the thumbnail list of all the supplies I used to create this card.

Please contact your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator if you have any questions or to make a product purchase. I would be happy to answer any questions about products or the techniques shown here. If you do not already have a demonstrator, you can use the below thumbnail list or this link to order products from me.

BUNDLE


Did you know that Bundles of stamps and punches or dies are available at a 10% discount? Here’s an important tip! If you love the coordination of stamps and tools then don’t miss saving 10%, because all bundles in the current Mini catalogs will retire and take the 10% savings with them. Some of the stamps, dies, and punches will still be available in future catalogs, but not as bundles, so the 10% savings ends. Bundles, because they include more than stamps are only available while supplies last, so you won’t want to wait to get your bundles ordered.

Card Sketch Challenge – Birthday Themed

I am happy to be joining the “Stamping with Friends” design team and this, my first hop with the team.

Today we are focusing on birthday cards created based on a sketch. I recently participated in a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator swap and this is the sketch I used to create my swap which is a birthday card. I used this sketch from the many available through Mojo Monday. I prefer the sketches that include measurements like this one because it saves me time.

In my card below, I improvised slightly in that I did not use a 3.5″ x 2.5″ piece. I decided to use the “In the Wild” suite collection and used a stamped die-cut tiger instead. I die cut the tiger using Crushed Curry card stock. The Stamparatus helped to ensure I had the images lined up on the tiger correctly for each of the 11 identical cards I created. It took about a minute to figure out where to place the stripes for the body. He is applied to the embossed strip using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I enjoyed assembling this card and frankly, it was one of the quickest swaps I ever created. I already had several of the Thick Very Vanilla 4.25″ x 5.25″ pieces cut from a prior project. All I had to do was take a 3.5″ strip of Wild Designer Series Paper (DSP) and cut it in 2″ strips paying attention to the DSP design since it is directional. I cut 5 strips of Cajun Craze and embossed all of them at the same time by running the embossing folder through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.

To continue along this hop, click on the next image to see the next designer’s creation. After the list of designers, you will find the supply list for this card. I hope this card shows you how this suite can create beautiful cards. I was not a fan at first but it has grown on me and is now one of my favorites. Please contact your Stampin’ Up! demonstrtor if you have any questions or to make a product purchase. I am happy to answer any questions about products or this card shown here. If you do not already have a demonstrator, you can use the below product links or this link to order products from me.
