Demonstrator Training Support Blog Hop - December 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 The Quite Curvy stamp and die bundle, the Double Oval punch all from the soon to come January to June Mini catalogue and the Oh So Ombre designer series paper that is FREE with a purchase of £45 during the Sale-a-bration promotion which starts on 5 January 2021 too.

Here is one of the cards I shall be sending to my customers to say Thank you for ordering from me this month.

Here are the sizes of the card I used to create this card

Card base:

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

Card front:

Whisper White card: 5-1/2" x 3-3/4"
*Oh So Ombre Designer series paper: 6" x 4"
Whisper White card: scrap for sentiment
Blackberry Bliss card to punch shape

I also used
  • Quite Curvy stamp set and die bundle
  • Subtles 3d embossing folder
  • *Oval duet punch
  • Blackberry Bliss ink
  • *Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack
  • Basic Pearls
*New products

How I made this card:

With Blackberry Bliss ink, stamp the sentiment onto a Whisper White scrap and punch out the oval shape using the Oval Duet punch.
Punch the larger scallop oval shape from Blackberry Bliss card, also using the Oval Duet punch.

Fold the designer series paper in half (2" x 6")
With the fold at the the top, use the curvy die to make a horizontal cut just down from the fold.
Tip: lay die with curved cutting line at the top.


Adhere the two cut pieces to the embossed Whisper White card at top and bottom and cut off the overhanging pieces at the the side

Adhere the Whisper White sentiment piece to the Blackberry Bliss punched shape.
Adhere the oval shape piece as shown with dimensionals.
Decorate with Basic Pearls and add a twine bow.

The Oh So Ombre FREE designer series paper pack has sheets in Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Rococco Rose. There are 2 patterns; one with bubbles and the other plain, but all with a pretty ombre effect.

Here are similar cards made in each of the colours
