Country Home Black Ice Tin Tile Card for the Greek Isles October 2018 Blog Hop Event


Welcome to our first Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Achievers October 2018 Blog Hop!
Our theme for October is Holiday Catalog Product, and as you know from my post last Tuesday, the Country Home stamp set is my favorite from the Holiday Catalog.

For this card I was inspired to try a simple Black Ice technique which involves embossing the new Galvanized Steel paper with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and rubbing a JetBlack Stazon ink pad over the embossed images.  I recommend rubbing the side with with the raised floral images, otherwise you'll just highlight the lines and circles.


For the focal image I stamped the country pitcher & succulents in Memento Black ink, colored them in with my awesome Blends alcohol markers, and sponged the edge with Old Olive ink.  I finished the card with a bit of Braided Linen Trim and frayed the edges for a more rustic country look.

Thank you for joining us for this amazing hop today.  I know you are going to be inspired by what the other trip achievers have to share.  You are currently at my blog, www.jessbcreativecardiology.com

Nature's Poem So Sorry Card for Kylie’s International Blog Highlight October 2018




Today I'm playing along with my friend Kylie's International Blog Highlight with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all around the world.  The theme she has chose for this month is "Sorry."  Honestly, I hate making cards for such occasions as they are filled with such difficult emotions.  On the other hand, there's a saying that a card is a hug with a fold in the middle, and can help comfort someone in a way we are not physically able to.

I chose this soft leafy pattern of Designer Series Paper from the Nature's Poem product suite and paired it with my favorite new stamp set for difficult occasions - Kindness & Compassion.  The sentiments in this stamp set make it a must-have for every crafter's collection!

A Few Cotton Blossoms for Kylie’s Demonstrator Training October 2018 Blog Hop

 
Thank you for joining me in the first blog hop of the Stampin' Up! new year for my friend Kylie's Demonstrator Training Group! I'm part of a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who collaborate to improve our Stampin' Up!® businesses and learn from top Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world, and this month we've started working on earning the next Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Maui.

Today I'm sharing a simple side-step technique card featuring the Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set.  The Country Lane product suite is my absolute favorite of the whole Holiday Catalog!  I love the rustic country style and the cotton blossoms remind me of the southern charm of South Carolina - our home away from home.



I've even created a video tutorial so you can see how easy it is to make one of these super cute cards yourself!  Please check it out, give me a thumbs up, and subscribe to my channel if you like it.  https://youtu.be/uh8LPhFckfE
