Demonstrator Training Blog Hop November 2021

Hello my crafty friends 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. Our theme is always our customer thank you cards and here is mine for this month.

While my sentiment doesn't say "Thank You", I think that Forever Grateful says it all. I am grateful and thank my customers placing orders with me. I started with the gorgeous Daisy Garden stamp and placed it on my Stamparatus, grabbed my basic white layer (I have a stack of them already cut and ready to go) and placed it onto the Stamparatus, then using Versamark ink, I inked up the image and stamped it. Next I grabbed my white emboss powder and sprinkled it on the image and heat set it with my heat tool. Now, I have a beautiful shiny image. I thought about water colouring the image, but instead I used my Stampin' Blends® in Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Cinnamon Cider. When colouring the flowers petals, I started with light Highland Heather and coloured the whole petal, then with the dark Highland Heather, I flicked from the center outwards to give the shading. It isn't obvious, but it is subtle and that is what I wanted.

I layered the image on top of Highland Heather and adhered them directly to the card base. The ribbon is actually Fresh Freesia and it goes so well with the flowers. I tried colouring it with Highland Heather Blends® but it turned out to be too dark. I also used Fresh Freesia ink for the sentiment and to make those banner ends, my trusty Banners Pick a Punch.

Here you can see the white embossing of the image. I love watching the heat tool setting the powder. It goes from matt to shiny in seconds.
