NC Demos December Blog Hop – Ending the Year with Designer Series Paper!

Hello everyone!  I’m so glad to be back in the lineup for the monthly NC demo blog hop!  I really messed up last month by not having my post ready to send to Tracie Evans Langley (our Blog Hop Fearless Leader!) in time for the hop 😦  I hate to miss these events because there are always so many talented demonstrators who participate and I always come away with new ideas.  So, having said that, you probably just came here from Tracie Evans Langley’s blog and I know she shared an amazing project 🙂

Our guidelines this month were to use some of our beautiful Designer Series Papers and embellishments from the Annual Catalog.  We usually have 2 active catalogs at any given time, our Annual comes out in June, and then we have 2 mini catalogs that come out in the 1st half (Jan – Jun) and 2nd half (Jul-Dec) of each year.  And sometimes we get really excited when the mini’s come out and our Annual catalog products don’t get the love they deserve.  So this is a good time to delve back into that catalog and feature the beautiful projects there.

One of my very favorite suites in the Annual catalog is the Peony Garden Suite.  And I absolutely love the DSP colors!  Gray has become one of my favorite neutrals.  And while this DSP has some beautiful floral patterns, there are some pretty awesome geometric patterns as well.  And they are perfect for stamping directly onto those patterns.  So that’s what I did for my projects.  I created one card that used monotones, and the other I added a little color to.  (My designs are based on a card I saw from Ronda Wade, I just made a few adjustments to my versions)

For both cards, I started with a base of Gray Granite cardstock, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  Next, I cut the first DSP pattern showing the floral side at 5 1/4 x 2 1/2.  The Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon was wrapped around the DSP and then a bow was tied on the front for the monotone card.  I tied 3 separate pieces of ribbon for the colored version.

Then for the focal image, I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 x 3, and a geometric pattern of DSP at 3 3/4 x 2 3/4.  I stamped the Peony image directly on the geometric DSP using Memento Black ink.  You could use Gray Granite ink, but I wanted a little more emphasis for the image.   Stamping on top of a pattern gives the image more depth, I think.  For the colored version, I used Old Olive and Calypso Coral inks and a Q-tip to add a little color to the image.  The focal image panels were added with dimensionals to the card front and finished off with the Elegant Faceted Gems.  I used the Dark Calypso Coral Blend marker to color the white gems on the colored version.  And I used 2 different sentiments from the stamp set to finish off the card.  And of course, a card of mine would not be complete without Wink of Stella, which I applied to the darker parts of the Peony.

The monotone version great card for a casual stamper as it uses minimal supplies and steps.  The colored version would be a slight step up.

Here are a few more pics:

Wonder & Wishes All In One Gift Card Holder and Card

Well, I have to start this post off with a facepalm 😦  This was supposed to be part of the November NC Demos Blog Hop…and I missed it.  I have been so absorbed in other things that even though I had started this post several weeks ago with the intention of having it ready to go, I just missed the boat entirely.  UGH…can I just chalk it up to 2020??

But, since I did have my project completed, I will share it with you.  This is a great idea for giving a gift card for any occasion, I’m just focusing on it being for Christmas right now.  And the layout is not my original idea.  This was created by the crafty duo from Crafty Person, a team of demonstrators who provide a great blog/email service to other demonstrators.  This was their November project and I just fell in love with it.  I just changed up the stamps and DSP for my project.

I used very traditional colors for my card.  And the Heart Warming Hugs Designer Series Paper worked perfectly.  I matched Real Red and Pear Pizzazz cardstock and used Soft Suede for Mr. Deer. Adding some Gold Foil paper and Red Sheer Ribbon really sets off the whole design.

What I like most about this card is that the gift card holder is actually on the front of the card, instead of inside as we generally see.  You just pull the tab at the top and the gift card is attached to the Real Red Cardstock panel!

And of course, you can add any sentiment you have on hand.  I used the sentiment that comes with the Wishes and Wonders stamp set.

Paper Pumpkin Refill Kits are BACK!!

When Stampin’ UP! switched over to the new online store format, they had to temporarily halt the availability of excess Paper Pumpkin kits and refill kits from the store.  Well, I’m happy to announce that you can now purchase both from the online store!!  And just a reminder, there’s no guarantee that there will be refills for every month, it depends on how many new subscriptions are received each month and the anticipated demand of those kits.  But we do have refills currently available for both the September and October kits.  These are NOT the full kits, so they will not contain the stamps set.  But you can easily substitute Halloween or Christmas sentiment stamps that you have to create the projects.  I’ve included pics of the finished projects below for reference.

Send some Love

 

There are so many wonderful samples available in our Annual catalog and as I was browsing for some inspiration, I came across this card.  It’s simple but conveys a very important message.   We are in the last quarter of what has been a crazy year, and many of us are stressed out and continue to struggle with the new “normal”.  It’s so easy to lose sight of any positivity, and that’s just not healthy.  It’s more important than ever to reach out and let other’s know that you care about them.  A little note sent to someone unexpectedly may just be the boost that someone desperately needs!

This card can be created with just a few supplies and you can definitely just use what you have on hand.  But I particularly love the stamp set, Comfort and Hope, because it has some amazing sentiments.  And the images are perfect for anyone.  The card above is made using our Notecards with Envelopes (20 cards w/envelopes) which is smaller in size than a regular card, so you don’t really need to do a lot of stamping to send a heartfelt message.  And you can send 20 messages of love with one package 🙂

 

COMFORT & HOPE CLING STAMP SET

I hope you’ll decide to send some love today!

Happy Stamping,

Toni
