Stampin' Up! Grapefruit Grove Lotus Blossom Card for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program January 2020 Team Blog Hop

 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.

 I created this project I'm calling the Grapefruit Grove Lotus Blossom Card using the new Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set, Lily Pad Dies, and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper - all part of Stampin' Up!'s Free Sale A Bration offerings during January - March 2020.  The colors are so subtle and pretty!  And I love the intricacy of the die cut layered over the stamped lotus flower.

I first adhered a strip of the Lily Impressions DSP to the card base, and then popped the Pool Party cardstock panels up with Stampin' Dimensionals to allow the Lily DSP to peek through.  Then I stamped the Lotus Blossom in Grapefruit Grove ink onto Petal Pink cardstock, die cut the image, and then adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals as well.  I adhered the intricate die cut layer overtop of the flower using just a few mini glue dots.


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!

Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming Congratulations Card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights November 2019

Welcome to my blog, Jess B Creative "Card"-iology!  Thank you for visiting today as I join Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world in playing along with our friend Kylie's International Blog Highlight to share cards that showcase the theme of Encouragement.  

I used Kylie's "Love It, Chop It" method to design this card - cutting my designer series paper to 3 3/4 x 5, matting it on a layer of 4 x 5 1/4, and adhering it to a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card base.  I needed a Congratulations card to recognize one of my Creative Cardiolgy team members who recently promoted to the title of Bronze Elite.  Even though Stampin' Up! doesn't have any Bronze items - we do have Copper, and I love the Copper Foil element in this Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper!
The Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon has a really fun shimmer to it so I thought that using it to make a pretty bow would be the perfect finishing touch!
I hope my team member likes the card, and I hope you do too!  Please visit  http://bit.ly/InternationalHighlightsNovember2019VoteForMeHere to vote for my card and check out the other participants cards of encouragement as well!

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!
