Happy Monday and welcome to my post for Kylie's Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are working along with the goal of helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.
You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post today. This month I just had to use one of my favorite DSP from Sale-a-Bration called Most Adored. Love all the gold accents in the DSP and it was also my first time to actually use the Patchwork Pieces Dies from the annual catalog. Such fun dies, and when you partner them with the DSP it is a win-win I think.
I used a Flirty Flamingo card base, and added a Real Red mat that I embossed with the Softly Sophisticated 3D embossing folder, which is another Sale-a-bration freebie! I ran the die cut the swirl dies from 3 different patterns from the Most Adored DSP that I had backed with Adhesive sheets. I then adhered them to a Basic White mat, alternating the patterns. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Real Red ink and punched it out with the Hexagon punch and sponged around the edged in Flirty Flamingo ink with a sponge dauber. Adhered both with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front, and added some Flirty Flamingo twine behind sentiment and Iridescent Rhinestones around the card front for more added blingy sparkle. These were fun to assemble and see the different looks with the various DSP swirl combinations. I liked them and hope my customer will too!
Here is an up close view of the two various DSP designs:
For the card inside I added another sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Real Red ink to a Basic White panel, then matted it on a Real Red mat and adhered to card inside.
If don't already have a demonstrator you purchase from, place an order from me in February, and I will send you one of these cards in the mail. This is the last month of Sale-a-Bration too, which means extra freebies for every $50.00 ordered, before S/H & Tax. Placing an order with me, also gets you on my customer list for sending catalogs. If you need a catalog, please let me know once you have placed your order and I will get them in the mail to you. If you would like to replicate these calendars, the CS and DSP measurements are below.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and use the links below to continue on with the hop.
