Demonstrator Training Support Blog Hop - October 2020


Hello everyone

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Support Group monthly Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in a programme that will help us in our Stampin' Up!® businesses.

Thank you very much for your support!

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Today I've been playing with the lovely new Curvy Celebration suite that will be available to purchase next month.  

This new suite contains curvy stamps and dies and some beautiful designer series paper coloured Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Sahara Sand - just perfect for all those Christmas cards we are making.

Here is a card that that I shall be sending out to my customers who order from me this month.

Here are the supplies I used to create this card:

Cut card/paper pieces:

Card base:
Whisper White Thick card: 4-1/8" x 11-3/4", score at 5-7/8" fold and burnish
Rotate and cut at 4-1/8"
Fold and emboss to create an A6 card base

Card front:
Classic Christmas 6" x 6" designer series paper
Whisper White card: 5-5/8" x 3-7/8"

Sahara Sand
Shaded Spruce

How I made this card:
I adhered a piece of Sahara Sand designer series paper to the card base.

After I had stamped the rows of trees onto a piece of Whisper White card as shown, using Shaded Spruce ink, I added some colour to the tree using a Blender Pen.  I also added some Sahara Sand to the 'ground'
Tip: Gently dip the Blender Pen into the corner of your ink pad and transfer the ink into the lid of your ink pad.  Swirl and spread the ink in the lid, until you have the shade of ink colour you want. 

Gently colour in your image, rubbing too vigorously will break the smooth fibres of your card and create a 'fluffy' finish.

The sentiment was also stamped in Shaded Spruce.
I used one of the Curvy dies to cut off the bottom of my card.
This card front was attached to the card base with dimensionals.

So here is my card again... 

Thank you so much for coming by today!
