On to Adventure at the Beach Card for the January 2020 Stampin' Up! Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop

Welcome to the January 2020 Stampiin' Up! Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop!  I'm excited that I finally got my act together to actually participate this month, lol!  I've had my eye o the On to Adventure stamp set from p.28 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog for quite some time, and when the Tropical Oasis Suite of products came out in the Mini Catalog I knew they were made for each other!  The crazy tourist images are just too funny!  
I've been dreaming of the beach lately and decided that this card is a vision of my husband and I in our retirement someday in the far distant future.  We both love the beach, and honestly - as much as we both hate the cold NY winters, I'm not sure why we haven't packed up and moved to the beach yet!
Using the Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card Pack made putting this card together pretty easy - that's where the "Let's Go to the Beach" panel came from.  I cut all my layers, assembled the card, then stamped my "tourists", colored them with my Stampin' Blends, and then fussy cut them with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

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!
