Gold Edged Christmas Card

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘December Holidays’. You might have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Wasn’t her project lovely?

The card that I have done today is quick and easy. I used the foil edged cards and envelopes for that gorgeous gold edge around the card, and dug into my DSP stash. If you want to make different variations, you can use the silver edged cards and any of the pretty Christmas DSP in the holiday catalogue.

Don’t forget to stamp the envelope and the inside of the card so that everything is matching.

These are the products that I used for this card

DSP Showcase

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘DSP Showcase’. Have you spent some time looking at the DSP in the new catalogue? They are all beautiful!! I have chosen to use the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for my card.

I used the Decorative Ribbon Border punch to do the edge. You need to be careful not to punch all the way to the edge, or you will have a lovely ribbon that is separated from the card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of your card. I always do an envelope to match too.

These are the products that I used in this card.

Pick a Colour…

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-Bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. She always has a fabulous project to share!

I found myself marvelling at the peculiarities of human nature (specifically my own, but I’m sure everyone will be able to identify.) I was looking at the beautiful Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterflies DSP, filled with gorgeous colours, but none of them were ‘talking’ to me. So how do you get DSP in a colour that appeals to you? Well, take one of the black-and-white designs and colour it yourself.

This enables you to have your DSP in whatever colour appeals to you on the day. I used the colours that match the Organdy Ribbon Combo pack, except for the green, which is Call Me Clover.

Did you notice the new punch that I used on these cards? This is part of a limited edition set of products that will be available from the 1st to the 31st March. Be sure not to miss out on these.

Below are the products that I used for these cards.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to hop over to Sue Boerner’s blog and see the fun project she designed.

Circle Journal Round 4

On Monday, I had happy mail in my postbox in the form of the next Circle Journal!  We are almost halfway through this round (this is the fourth journal from nine) and as a first time participant, I love the variety of themes and cards that the other ladies are coming up with.

This journal’s theme is ‘CASE my card’, CASE being an acronym for ‘Copy And Share Everything’.  She chose a card sketch and made a card based on that sketch.  According to the instructions, I had to copy the layout and/or colour scheme (Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry), or alter to suit my own design.  This is the sketch that she based her card on.

I have been working with the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP this week and decided to keep using it for this Circle Journal card.  I liked the layout of the sketch, so I used that and this is what I came up with.

Can you see the Wink of Stella on the banner? In my opinion, a bit of sparkle makes everything even better!!!

These are the products that you will need it you want to CASE this card.
