Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop- August 2020

I can’t believe the Stampin’ Up!® August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is live already! I chose the Poinsettia Place Suite for my card today. So much loveliness!

I made a lot of different poinsettia cards by placing the Poinsettia Petals stamps on my Stamparatus and stamping a bunch of them onto 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS). I colored each one in a different color scheme using the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers then ran them through my cutting machine. I’ve made about 4 different poinsettia cards so far. This was a really quick way to stamp a bunch of poinsettia pieces.

I stamped the poinsettia and leaves for this card in Soft Suede ink. I used a blender pen for shadowing, then sponged the edges of the poinsettia in Soft Suede ink. The leaves were sponged with Garden Green ink, then Soft Suede ink on the edges. I crinkled the paper a little before laying it out on the card for added dimension.

For the “Merry Christmas” sentiment I stamped it in Early Espresso ink then cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies by extending the rectangle to fit the sentiment with partial die cutting. The edges of the sentiment as well as the edges of the 1st layer of Very Vanilla CS were also sponged in Soft Suede ink.

I am a retired Family Physician who loves creating and crafting, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator for almost 4 years. Not only do I get to craft, I get to travel and meet new friends from all over the world. Crafting gives me something positive to do and share with others. I love having people over to stamp cards with me. My blog is geared toward the beginner stamper. I want to help others get started stamping in their own home. Come join me!

    1. Thank you. Tracy, this set is so versatile. I have made the poinsettia red, yellow, blue and orange. I have also seen white for sympathy, wedding and anniversary cards. You really get a lot of options with it.
