Kristie Strum - Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator

Blog Hop, Stamped Cards, Stampin' Up!, Stamping

July 2021 Demonstrator Training Program 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.

This card is inspired by a card sketch challenge for an upcoming team meeting using this sketch:

I don’t often use two different packs of Designer Series Paper together, but both the Bloom Where You’re Planted (bricks) and Beauty of the Earth (flowery) include Cinnamon Cider in their colors, and I love how these two pieces look together, on a card base of Merry Merlot.

The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, punched with the Treasured Tags Pick a Punch on one end.

I colored the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends marker. I finished the card with a few just-visible Elegant Faceted Gems.

You can find a button below that will take you to the entire supply list.
