Stampin' Up! Jar of Love Stitched Hearts Card for the Stampers Showcase January 2021 Blog Hop

Welcome to the January 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month's hop theme is all about sharing LOVE in all it's different forms.  Something I love anytime of year is a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  I was inspired by the idea of a mason jar full of colorful blooms, and the Jar of Flowers Bundle fit the description perfectly!  To enhance the shabby chic look I was going for I created a textured background by die cutting 12 small stitched hearts and adhering them to a large stitched rectangle of cardstock in the same Blushing Bride color.  
I stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored them with my Stampin' Blends, and then fussy cut the bouquet with my Paper Snips.  I added a bit of shimmer to the blossoms with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  Every card needs a little Stella!

Stampin' Up! Punch Party Paper Blooms Card Duo for the Stamper's Showcase Sale A Bration Pre-Order December 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to the December 2020 Stamper's Showcase Sale a Bration Pre-Order Blog Hop!  The cards I'm sharing with you today feature the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper - a Level 1 Sale A Bration option (free with $50 USA order), and the Punch Party host stamp set - which you can get free by placing a qualifying ($300 USA) party or personal order. 
 The variety of sentiments in the Punch Party stamp set is fantastic - not to mention they coordinate with lots of my favorite punches.  I used the Banner Triple punch to flag the end of the cardstock used for my sentiments, and the Delightful Tag Topper to pretty up the top before I added the ribbon. 
 I love florals and the Paper Blooms DSP is so soft and pretty!  I made a Seaside Spray get well card and a Rococo Rose variation too.
I used die cut leaves and flowers cut with the Garden Gateway Dies to decorate the tags and then embellished the delicate flowers with pearls.

Stampin' Up! Lots to Remember for the Creative Cardiology Team December 2020 Farewell Favorites Blog Hop

 

Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team December Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects using some of our favorite retiring products from the Stampin' Up! August - December 2020 Mini Catalog.  
The card I've made uses two items I'm really going to miss - the Lots to Celebrate stamp set and the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Both of these items are extremely versatile and great for crafting projects year-round.  The Lots to Celebrate stamp set was designed by my friend & Stampin' Up! Million Dollar Sales Achiever Susie Wood, and coordinates with the Jar Punch too!  So in a way - its a bit of a keepsake.  The next time we see each other I'll have to get her to autograph my stamp case!
I love the soft country look the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds to the card.  I'm sure you know several people who could use a jar of hearts - tiny little hugs!
First I stamped the jar, the hearts, and the little dotted lines images then punched them out.  Then I stamped the fabric ruffle and lid images and fussy cut them out.  I adhered the fabric ruffle to the jar with Mini Glue dots then added the lid on top with Mini Dimensionals.  The Braided Linen Trim is adhered to the lid of the jar with Mini Glue Dots.  Once the decorated jar was complete I adhered it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Dimensions:
Card Base - Melon Mambo 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Layer 1 - Seaside Spray 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 - Plaid Tidings DSP 2" x 5"
Whisper White 2" x 3" for jar, fabric ruffle, and lid
