Paper Crafting Blog Hop – July-December Mini-Catalog

Welcome to our September Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects created with products found in the fabulous July-December Mini-Catalog!

You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. She had a great project! My card features the fun Rustic Harvest 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (#159633) part of the Rustic Harvest Suite Collection (#159648). There are so many fun patterns in this big assortment of DSP!

The card base is Basic Black, an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet cut into quarters. I piece of the DSP is adhered to one panel and cut with the 4th from the largest Stitched Rectangle Die (#151820). I fussy cut another piece of the DSP to decorate the frame. Two more panels of Basic Black are scored and have two panels of DSP adhered to each. These are attached to the final Basic Black card base. Two strips of Basic Black are adhered to the back of the frame and the ends of the “curtain panels” are put through the loops. This creates the mechanism for this theater card.

The inside panel can be used for a greeting, sentiment or additional DSP panel. My card has the sentiment from Pansy Patch (#154999) on Basic White, matted on Crushed Curry.

The July-December mini-catalog has so many wonderful items for all of your fall and holiday cards, scrapbooking, paper crafting, and gift giving needs!

Waves of the Ocean Collection Available NOW

Each of the world’s wide and open oceans is brimming with beauty and wonder. Marvelous marine animals, miles of submerged mountain ranges, and unique underwater plants lie thousands of feet below Earth’s dry surface, encouraging exploration and awaiting discovery. I am at the ocean right now and it is the most relaxing place for me!

Discover the depths of the ocean—and your artistic abilities—with the Waves of the Ocean Collection! This coastal collection includes an inspiring set of stamps and detailed dies, both early-release products from the upcoming 2022–2023 Annual Catalog.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Celebrating Birthdays!

Welcome to our 1st Paper Crafting Blog Hop of 2022 with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects for birthdays!

You may have arrived here from Sandra’s blog. She had a great project! My card features the Friendly Hello Bundle – yes BUNDLE – from the 2022 Sale-A-Bration brochure – yes Sale-A-Bration – meaning it’s free with a $100 order!! The bundle includes the Friendly Hello photopolymer stamp set and the Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The card base is Basic White with a layer of the DSP on it. Then a smaller piece of Vellum Card Stock (#101856), stamped with images in Jet Black Stazon Ink (#101406) was added. This is the ink you want to use on porous surfaces, like vellum. Then I stamped the bird on a branch image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Basic White and colored it lightly with alcohol markers. The sentiment from this wonderful SAB set is stamped in Pool Party. All images were adhered carefully with the adhesive hidden behind the solid pieces of the card. Three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for a little bling!

We are 2 weeks into Sale-A-Bration, time to look through the annual and mini catalogs and order what you must have and earn free products!
