Colour Combo Blog Hop: September 2020

Can you believe it’s September already?! I cannot, it seems like September just snuck up on us. I’ve been looking forward to creating with this combo since it was announced earlier this year. In fact, I’ve created 3 cards with this colour combo and I might just keep going I like it so much! Subscribe to my blog to be emailed when I post new cards or follow me on instagram!

If you are following along with the blog up you are just come from Jo Blackman’s blog. If you joined from my IG link or other social media make sure you click the next button to keep hopping!

Today’s card is actually a CASE from my own collection! If this card looks familiar to you, it’s because it’s very similar to this one that I created back in June of 2019. I used the Flirty Flamingo ink full strength on the main floral image and then I stamped again to get a softer less saturated color for the second floral image. I followed this technique with every color ink used to create the stamped floral image.

I used versamark ink and white embossing powder to make the sentiment standout on Night of Navy cardstock. I have been obsessed with white embossed sentiments lately! I think heat embossed sentiments just add the right touch to almost any card.

Stamp ‘N Hop – September 2020: Holiday Mini

Hey Stampin’ friends, I’m so excited to be back with the Stamp ‘N Hop this month. Today we are sharing projects created with products from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog. If you are hopping along from start to finish you’ve come from Terry Montgomery’s blog.

I used the Merry Moose Bundle which is a returning fave from the 2019 Holiday Catalog! I’m so excited that this bundle returned as it was so popular last year that the punch sold out very early in the catalog cycle and could not be restocked.

I stamped the Buffalo Check background in Memento Tuxedo Black on Real Red Cardstock that measured 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ then I tore the top 1/3 off to create the layered look. I stamped the moose image, sentiment, and trees in Memento Tuxedo Black on Crumb Cake Cardstock before punching out the moose and die cutting the circle. The sentiment tag is made with the brilliant new Banners Pick A Punch from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog…I hope it sticks around for a while! Below is a complete list of the supplies I used.

If you don’t already have a demonstrator in your area (US Only) I’d be happy to assist you with all of your Stampin’ Up! needs. I support virtual classes during the pandemic and will be continuing them as part of by regularly scheduled programming. Click any of the links below to order from me today!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: August 2020

Welcome back to another month of Colour Combo Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron, and Soft Suede. All three are beautiful colors on their own and even better as a combo! If you are hopping along start to finish you’ve just come from Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair. If you joined us today from my IG (@Sparkle_And_Stamp) or you are subscriber be sure to follow the NEXT link below to check out all of the other creators this month!

When I first saw this color combo for August I couldn’t help but think I’ve seen this combo used before and I loved it! Does anyone remember the Petals & Paisley Specialty DSP from 2016?

Sometimes the right pattern of DSP will just stick in your memory for later inspiration! While there wasn’t Soft Suede in this DSP, the Rich Razzleberry and the Mint Macaron are front and center in several of the sheets! Which caused my to search through my archived and choose a card design that I also used with that DSP!

I would call this card Clean and Simple (CAS) because I only used Cardstock/DSP, Ink, and a few Embellishments. No special techniques or fancy stamping! I used the new Gilden Autumn Specialty DSP from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog an my main background and focal point piece. The DSP is Mint Macaron and gold foil! To tie in the gold foil from the DSP I also used the Gilded Gems and the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack!

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far or if you just started I hope you enjoy the projects that are shared! We have a large group hopping today so make sure you check them all out and leave some love in the comments section below!

Stamp ‘N Hop: August 2020 – Favorite Bundle

Hey Stampin’ friends, I’m so glad to be back with the Stamp ‘N Hop this month. Today we are sharing projects created with our personal Favorite Stampin’ Up! Bundle. A Bundle can be any stamp set and tool combo that is currently offered! If you are hopping along, you’ve come here from Rochelle Laird-Smith’s blog.

In the 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog there are 34 bundles and in the brand new August – December 2020 Mini catalog there are 30 bundles! How can I possibly choose a favorite!?! I found it incredibly challenging to decide which stamp set and tool bundle I wanted to use for this months hop!

As you can see I finally narrowed down the list and use the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle on pg. 13 on the 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog! There are so many bundles to choose from, I may have to do a monthly bundle feature…and even then I wont get through even half of the bundles!

I used both the solid image dies and the line image dies to create my main sunflower focal point! I cut the line image sunflower out in both Bumblebee and Early Espresso Cardstock. Then I trimmed around the Early Espresso center to make a larger brown center for my sunflowers. This card was a little fussy to put together, but I really love the way it came out!

If you don’t already have a demonstrator I would love to assist you with all of your Stampin’ Up! needs! Please feel free to use the links below to add items to your cart!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: July 2020

Welcome back to another month of Colour Combo Blog Hop! This month we are featuring the brand new 2020-2022 In Color Misty Moonlight along with Highland Heather and Sahara Sand. If you are hopping along start to finish you’ve just come from Linda Moore at Moore Fun Stamping. If you joined us today from my IG or you are subscriber be sure to follow the link below to check out all of the other creators this month!

If we haven’t met before, I’m Caroline and I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the US. You can follow me on Instagram @sparkle_and_stamp for nearly daily updates and share!

Have you ever started a card with an idea in your head and had the final product turn out completely different than you imagined? OMG, I have! Today’s card is a perfect example of that. I can’t explain what I saw in my head when I set out to create this card, but as I developed the pieces my creation took a different direction.

I used the Birch background stamp to cover my Whisper White cardstock. Then I stamped one of the floral imagines (I think they are actually poppies) from Bloom & Grow using my Stamparatus in Highland Heather ink. Then I took a Water Painter and Highland Heather ink refill to fill in the entire image. Once my paper was dry I put it back into my Stamparatus and stamped the floral image again in Highland Heather ink.

Normally, I would put an excessive amount of metallic threat behind the floral image but it’s no longer available so I try not to use it on cards I showcase here. Instead I used my Stamparatus again to stamp the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set in Misty Moonlight. Then I cleaned my stamp really well and inked it up with Versamark ink. I used clear embossing powder to give the sentiment more depth and to set the ink on the vellum. Finally, I used the new Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to “fancy up” the ends of the vellum and the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots as accents.

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far or if you just started I hope you enjoy the projects that are shared! We have a large group hopping today so make sure you check them all out and leave some love in the comments section below!
