Autumn Wreath Gather Together Card for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop October 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog, Jess B Creative "Card"-iology!  Today I'm participating in a blog hop with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as part of our my friend Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program.  This is our first blog hop of the new Stampin' Up! year together - our business year runs October 2019 - September 2020 - and I'm excited to team up with these talented designers to see what inspiring creations we all make!

My card was inspired by the beautiful Autumn day we're having here in upstate NY as well as the gathering of the creative minds of our new Demonstrator Training Program participants.  You can see some of the leaves that have fallen and scattered all around my yard in the photo below.
And here's a close-up photo of the card so you can see the design elements more clearly.  I matted a piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper on an Early Espresso card base.  Then I punched out 7 sprigs of Merry Merlot cardstock, die cut 6 Pretty Peacock leaves, stamped and punched out 6 Pear Pizazz leaves - and arranged them all in a wreath around a circle cut from Whisper White cardstock with the Stitched Shapes Dies using Mini Glue Dots to keep them all in place.  I stamped the pumpkins in Cajun Craze ink and then colored them in with my Cajun Craze and Soft Suede Blends.  I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink.
Sometimes the card we envision in our heads doesn't always work out on paper, but I'm pleased with the way this card came together - and it was actually pretty quick to make!  

I hope you've enjoyed visiting my blog, Jess B Creative "Card"-iology, today and will continue on to visit the blogs of the other Training Program participants to see their amazing projects too!

Sweet Toile Rabbit Card for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop September 2019

Welcome to the Stamper's Showcase September 2019 Blog Hop!  This month our theme is all about the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I chose to play with my favorite Holiday Catalog stamp set - Nature's Beauty.

I just adore the realistic animal images in the Nature's Beauty stamp set - especially this sweet little rabbit.  I decided to pair it with the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and sponge the edges with Soft Suede ink for a vintage look.  The Heirloom Frames embossing folder added the perfect touch to the Garden Green oval to frame the stamped image.
 I haven't played with my Watercolor Pencils in awhile so I pulled them out to create a delicate painted look to the little bunny, leaves, and grass.  I added just a touch of color with the pencils and then blended it together with a Blender Pen.

Enjoy Life Cyclist Card for the Stampin' Up! Masculine Theme Stampers Showcase Blog Hope July 2019

Welcome to the Stamper's Showcase July 2019 Blog Hop!  This month we're working on a "Masculine" theme, which seems to be a tough one for a lot of people, so it will be great to have all these wonderful ideas to inspire us.  

If you've been following the projects I've been making recently you've probably already determined that I seem to be obsessed with Stampin' Up!s amazing See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper.  I have yet to use it with the actual See a Silhouette stamp set, but it's so versatile I've been pairing it with everything else - including the cyclist image from the Enjoy Life stamp set!  
I started with a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 scrap of the honeycomb paper pattern.  Turning it with the greenish shades on the bottom and the blues on the top and dab of yellow made it look to me like grassy mountains and a sunny sky.  
Though I'm not exactly sure who I will send this cyclist card to I love the sentiment as it's the perfect motivational statement for anyone working to accomplish a goal or overcome an obstacle!
