See A Silhouette Thanks Card

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator 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 that 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.

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 is the project that I have made for our hop today.
Oh my goodness, look at those colours! This Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called See A Silhouette and it is on page 166 of the Annual Catalogue. I truly believe that sometimes you need to see these papers in the flesh to really appreciate them, as the picture in the catalogue does not do them justice.

I don't always have someone in mind when I create a card, but this time I did. My eldest daughter's saxophone tutor is leaving to concentrate on her final year at Uni. She is a lovely, patient and committed person and we wish her well next year and this card is for her. 

Can you see the shimmer on the leaves? I used my Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush. Did you notice, did you notice ... the new stamp set!! It is called Painted Poppies and it is part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite in the new 2020 Mini Catalogue (starting 3rd January). I actually won this stamp set at OnStage last month! Woo hoo! I cannot wait to show you more of this suite ... if Aus Post every deliver it ... grrrr. My original order went missing and after calling Stampin' Up! to inquire if they could help me (which they did), they ended up replacing my order at no cost to me!! How awesome is that. SU! have lodged an inquiry with Aus Post to see what happened to my original order.

I created a mask using post-it-note so I could stamp the leaves and make it look like they are behind the flower (Poppy).
