Demonstrator Training October 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop. You are visiting Tatiana in Australia. This blog hop is with a group of Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators who are taking part in Kylie’s Demonstrator Training. Our training is to help build our own Stampin’ Up!® businesses. My goal from this year’s training (our Stampin’ Up!® year started on 1st October) is to earn the next incentive trip to Maui in July 2020!!!

The training group is filled with so many wonderful demonstrators from all over the world. I am loving being a part of this supporting community. It can be challenging when you want to turn Stampin’ Up!® into a business that supports your family and not knowing where to start and that you are going about things the right way can be confusing and overwhelming on your own. This training gives us ideas a pointers on how to build our business. Part of our training is blog hopping!

Today’s card I dedicate to all the members of this group – including those who aren’t participating in this blog hop. This card’s sentiment is “Congratulations” because I would like to congratulate everyone on participating in this amazing training.

One of the best perks (apart for the Stampin’ Up!® family) of being a demonstrator is that we get to purchase new products ahead of release to the general public. This month we have been able to pre-purchase new items from the Snowflake Showcase. I decided to create todays card with one of the stamp sets from this set, the Happiness Surrounds stamp set.

The inspiration for this card was taken from a photo I pinned on Pintrest. The original card was by Jo Anne Hewins, and I loved how she used die cuts to create a textural background. I’ve don’t the same with my card.

To create this card:

  1. Prepare card base in Highland Heather.
  2. Die cut from Highland Heather cardstock various dies from the Snowfall Thinlits. I used the more floral and leaves dies to create a flora feel to the card.
  3. Arrange these die cut pieces on the card front till you are pleased. Have some going off the edge.
  4. To adhere the die cut pieces put some Liquid Multipurpose Glue onto the Silicone Craft Sheet. Using a wedge of a Stamping Sponge dapped into the glue, pat it onto the back of the die cut piece and then position onto the card front. I’ve found this a very cost effective method of adhering intricate pieces such as these. The other option is to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Highland Heather cardstock before starting to die cut. I’ve found you waste a lot it in this card and don’t recommend it.
  5. Once all the pieces adhered trim off the overhangs with Paper Snip Scissors.
  6. On some Whisper White card stock stamp the large striped flower image (I used stamped off Costal Cabana) and the smaller flower (I used stamped off Berry Burst). Die cut these out with the coordinating thinlits from  the Snowfall Thinlits. Stamp in full strength Berry Burst the large medallion and fussy cut it out.
  7. On a strip of Whisper White 85mm x 15mm stamp the “Congratulations” sentiment in Costal Cabana. You can use the Triple Banner Punch to create the banner edge on the left.
  8. To assemble:
    1. Adhere the medallion using Liquid Multipurpose Glue to the card front.
    2. Attach the small flower to the large flower and attach them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (TIP: add the Silver Metallic Thread to the dimensional before adhering to the card front.
    3. Using Stampin’ Dimensional for the sentiment strip.
    4. Dot some Liquid Multipurpose glue around where you would like to add some Iridescent Sequin, allow to set a little before using the Take Your Pick tool to place the sequin.

I’m very happy with this card. I particularly love this colour combination. As always I have created a matching envelope and coordinated the inside of the card:
