Posted in 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog, Gratitude/ Thanks

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight- June 2020

Hello and welcome to my blog for Kylie’s Stampin” Up!® International Blog Highlight! I hope you enjoy my card!

My Thank You card today highlights the World of Good Suite. The Card Stock is Just Jade which is sponged around the edges with Shaded Spruce ink. The green leaves are Shaded Spruce and Just Jade made using the Sprig Punch. The leaves are sponged lightly with the Shaded Spruce ink.

I also experimented with the Gold Hoops and Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper from the Forever Greenery Suite. The background and the golden leaves are some of the gorgeous pieces in the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper. The Gold Hoop helps create the focal point for the globe stamped in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Shaded Spruce Card Stock.

The sentiment is from the Beautiful World stamp set. I used the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The label was made from the Everyday Label Punch. The gold twine is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. The gold gems are the Gilded Gems. All together these products create a lot of gold sparkle!

I am grateful to all of you out there who are creating cards! I get so much inspiration from everyone! I can’t wait to see all the cards and projects in Kylie’s International Blog Highlight!

Starting out to make your first card

Hello! It’s a snowy day here in Bisbee, Arizona! Didn’t expect snow in Arizona? Well, it doesn’t happen often, but we are in the mountains at a mile high. It’s a great day to stay warm inside and make cards!

Where to start? First, you need good quality paper. I have tried many types and have found Stampin’ Up! cardstock to be superior. Why? It is just the right thickness and the colors all coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! inks! Also, the color goes all the way through- no white in the middle, and the color does not easily fade. I have had some of my colored cardstock for 5 years without seeing it fade. Lastly, one ream of a color matches the next ream.

Here is a simple card I made using Night of Navy (item #100867) and Whisper White (#100730) Stampin’ Up! cardstock. I also used Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series paper (#146284), Night of Navy ink (#147110), Silver edged ribbon (#144213) and the Warm Hearted Stamp set (#147777)

In future posts I will address what you need to cut the cardstock, adhesives and other accessories. So hop on over to my store and start to gather the supplies needed to make your first card!
