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!

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!

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.

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!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Fall is in the air!

Welcome to our October Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects for fall!

You may have arrived here from Julia’s blog. She had a wonderful project! I started my card with the new Gorgeous Leaves bundle (#158609). The card base is Cinnamon Cider stamped all over with the 3 little leaves stamp from the Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set (#153365). I die cut a piece of Basic White with the rectangle from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (#153586). I stamped the center of that panel with the dots from Gorgeous Leaves and the sentiment from Lovely You (#1535350 in Cinnamon Cider. Next I used the open leaf from the Intricate Leaves Dies (#153566) to die cut leaves in Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler. Those are gathered and anchored with a bow of Gold Shimmer Ribbon ($152156). A nice quick card great for upcoming fall birthdays or telling someone you are so very thankful for them!

I also added a border of leaves on the inside Basic White panel.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Punch it up!

Welcome to our August Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects using our fabulous punches! Can you guess how many punches I used on my card?

You may have arrived here from Julia’s blog. She had a wonderful project! I chose the Medium Daisy Punch (#149517) to start my card. The card base is Crushed Curry with a layer of Basic White. I wanted to anchor my jar of flowers, so I used a piece of In Good Taste DSP (#152494). I punched 10 daisies out of Daffodil Delight. Then I used a Blending Brush (#153611) to darken the centers and a little bit on the petals with Crushed Curry. This adds depth to the flowers. The flowers needed a container, so I stamped the jar from Jar of Flowers (#152515) in Smokey Slate and then stamped the smaller jar stamp on the back side in Pool Party, stamped off, to add the water in the jar. Of course, then I punched out the jar with the coordinating Jar Punch (#152703). The stems were stamped in Old Olive and then colored with the Light Old Olive Stampin Blend (#154892).

The jar is popped with Dimensionals (#104430). The flowers needed some greenery, so I used the Sprig Punch (#148012) on Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstock. The top daisy is popped up on a dimensional and the sprigs tucked in among the daisies. I stamped the sentiment from Art Gallery (#158201) in Early Espresso and punched out with the Banners PIck a Punch (#153608).

I also made a version of this card using the Daisy Punch (#143713) to create 3 larger daisies. Which one do you like the best?

I colored the centers with an Early Espresso marker and then added some Wink of Stella (#141897) to make the centers sparkle. Did you count the number of punches I used? It was 4!
