November 2020 Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop – Free as a Bird Thank You

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop!

We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world who are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support. For this Stampin’ Up!® year, our blog hop is focused on creating thank you cards for our awesome customers.

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 and idea today.

Here’s the project I’m sharing with you today!

This card started with going through the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, which I just recently purchased, and seeing the striking Real Red narrow striping on one sheet. Next, I went through my stamp sets for a “thank you” sentiment I haven’t used lately, and realized I’ve never designed a card with the Free as a Bird stamp set. How is that possible?

I’m pretty sure my bird isn’t exactly like any real bird (I didn’t do any research before coloring), but it is similar to perhaps the red-breasted meadowlark or a bullfinch.

I recently saw a card where someone had put the scalloped layer on top rather than behind. I love this look!

Thank you so much for coming by today! We have an amazing lineup of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world who are working hard to learn how to be even more successful. We know you are going to love all the amazing projects that you are going to see today. Make sure you show them some love so they keep creating and sharing fantastic ideas for us all.
