Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - April 2020

Hello, and welcome to my April Demonstrator Training Blog Hop, if you’ve reached me from another blog, I’m Dianne (The Purple Rose Stamper) from the UK.  I hope you enjoy my blog and then please do hop along to the next one on this list.

This month I decided to make 4 cards mainly using 2 stamp sets, DSP from one set and 1 punch…. below are the results. 

The first was a female birthday card using one of my favourite colours - Melon Mambo.  The card was straightforward using the pretty flower image from the Birthday Jubilee set then layering DSP and card, finishing off with Happiness Blooms enamel dots. 

I then decided on a male card but I think the result could be for either male or female.   I heat embossed copper onto the copper foil and silver onto the silver foil.  Having embossed the flower image onto an oblong piece of copper foil I put each end into the Pretty Label punch to shape the 2 edges then used dimensionals to raise the image.  I finished the card using Metallic Pearl embellishments. 

Next up is what I call the ‘sunbeam’ card even it isn’t yellow/orange!!  This card came about by accident as I was cutting little strips off the width of the dsp and wondered how I could use the waste strips.  After cutting a few more came up with this design.  I used white embossing powder for the Happy Birthday image on Basic Gray card then cut it out using the Pretty Label punch layering it over Basic Black card.

Lastly I made the pot of flowers.  I cut out the flowers from the DSP and again used the strips of green dsp for the stems, although this time I cut them in triangle strips rather than oblong shape.  Once in place I then added Wink of Stella on the flowers and finally added the word 'friend' on the pot.
