Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - February 2021

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Our monthly Blog hop showcases the designs for our customer 'thank you' cards.  

The cards that I will be making for my customers this month will be this bright, beautiful card.  I think I might also re-create it in other colours but this is the original.

I just love the brightness of the card being mainly Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody with a touch of Old Olive, Highland Heather and Melon Mambo for the flowers.  The only tricky part was positioning the 'thank you' above the frame, which came from the Swirly Frames stamp set, but this was made much easier by using the Stamparatus.

I finished the card with an enamel dot either side of the 'thank you' and in the inside by stamping a flower image bottom right.

I do hope you've enjoyed my card this month and please do hop along to the next one on the list to see all the amazing creations from this very talented group of Demonstrators.

Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon.

Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Hop - February 2021

Welcome to this months International Blog Highlights and the theme is 'Thank You'. 

I'm very grateful for you spending the time to drop by today.  This months card uses only 3 colours, has no stamping but plenty of die cutting.

I used 3 sets of dies for this card... Playful Alphabet, Stitched Be Mine and Stitched So Sweetly.    The card is very easy and straight forward to make.  After die cutting the hearts and the scalloped oblongs I then stuck some of the foam adhesive sheets behind an off-cut of Magenta Madness cardstock so that the 'thank you' letters were raised.  I also used dimensionals to raise the white scalloped oblong to give more depth to the card.  

As you can see I finished the inside of the card by using the heart shapes that were surplus to requirements from the die cut on the card front.

I absolutely love the finished card with it's simplicity but boldness and bright colours.  

I do hope you like my card and, if so, I would love you to vote for me.  Please vote by clicking on the button below where you will be taken to the gallery of cards and to vote for me you need to click on the heart at the top right of the picture.

Celebrate Sunflowers Colour Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Todays card features Celebrate Sunflowers and is a colour challenge for my team.

The colours chosen were orange, purple and white, not a combination that I would pick but the colours were randomly selected.   I haven't used the sunflower stamps nearly enough so decided to start with this set.

Using Pumpkin Pie for the base card I then stamped the sunflower in the same colour onto basic white card.  With a mid layer of Gorgeous Grape I then die cut the sunflower outline in the same colour.  The sentiment comes from Borders Abound stamp set which seems to be my 'go to' set for the beautiful font.  The sentiment is white heat embossed onto Gorgeous Grape card.

Inside I stamped a sunflower in Gorgeous Grape in the bottom right hand corner with just half of the image showing.  From what appeared to be a tricky colour challenge I'm really pleased with the outcome.

Thank you for dropping by today.  Below are the products used to make this card.

Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - January 2021

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Our monthly Blog hop showcases the designs for our customer 'thank you' cards.  My customer thank you cards for December was created after I had a challenge with a team member to make a card using only 3 colours.  The colours she selected were grey, brown and blue..... yeah! I thought what a combination, but I'm really pleased with the end result.

The base of the card is Smokey Slate with a layer of Night of Navy topped off with a layer of Peony Garden DSP.  Using Night of Navy ink I stamped the large Peony image and die cut.  Using an off cut of Night of Navy cardstock and using Versamark and white emboss powder I used the 'Thank You' from Borders Abound.  Both the peony image and the thank you were secured using dimensionals.  I finished the front of the card with a piece of navy ribbon, which comes from the Boho Indigo product medley.

Having finished the front of the card I realised that I hadn't used brown anywhere so finished the card by stamping the peony image in Sahara Sand ink on the inside.

I was really pleased with the end result, and hope you like my creation this month.  Hopefully those who received one of my cards also enjoyed receiving it.

I hope you've enjoyed my card this month and please do hop along to the next Demonstrator on the list to see all the wonderful creations in this months blog hop.
