Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month we are focusing on birthdays. These are the most popular type of cards that we give out.

The Bright & Beautiful suite is perfect for bright and happy birthday cards. I love the starburst technique. The great thing about the Bright & Beautiful DSP is that you can choose your favourite piece(s) and they all work well together to create the starburst.

Here is a video on how to make this card

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Legendary Ride

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! This month we are focusing on the guys.
A couple of weeks ago I spent a lovely afternoon crafting with some fellow demonstrators. This card was designed by Linda Perrins and is perfect for today’s hop.

I am obsessed with this Z-fold. It is awesome because it is made from a single sheet of card stock and then folds flat to be mailed. I demonstrated a flowery version of this Z-fold at a virtual event last weekend. You can see that card and the replay of the Facebook live showing how I made it here.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Grassy Grove

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “My Favourite Bundle”

This one is really difficult for me, as there are so many bundles that I love. After a few days of thinking, I decided to use Grassy Grove. The thing that I love most about this bundle is the big trees frame die.

I used By The Bay DSP for the background and heat embossed the trees from the Grassy Grove stamp set with white embossing powder. I did step out of the bundle for the sentiment, that is from another great bundle – Season Of Chic. A bit of blending around the edges, and my card is done! I don’t know if Grassy Grove will carry over to the new catalogue, but if it does it won’t have the bundle saving. If this is on your wish list, be sure to order it before the end of April.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Elephant Parade

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is Winter Holidays. As it is so close to Christmas, I decided that I would focus my thoughts a bit further and do a new year card. However, I couldn’t find a happy new year greeting, so I had to think out of the box! This is what I came up with:

I used the Elephant Parade bundle and Days To Remember stamp set Once I had made this card, I did find a happy new year stamp – it is in the Brightest Glow stamp set. In my defense, I didn’t have this stamp set when I was making my card!

Below is a video that I did last year. It isn’t this card, but does show you how to position the days to get the month that you want aligned.
