A black and white striped birthday card | Stampin' Up! Display Stamper Blog Hop Day Two


Well, hello again my new and old friends!

Welcome back to Day 2 of a week long blog hop bringing together 20 Display stampers around the world.  A "Display Stamper" is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator that is sent product from a future catalogue in order to create projects for large display boards to inspire those at a Stampin' Up! event.

Over the course of this week long blog hop, we will each show you projects that we created for those display boards in the respective regions for OnStage events around the globe.  My projects were displayed in the only North American event in Salt Lake City. Keep in mind that these projects showcase products that will not be available until January 3, 2018 in the Stampin' Up! Occasions and Saleabration catalogues.

If you'd like to see all of my projects that were on display at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Salt Lake City in November 2017 be sure to check out this link.
Today is double trouble...
Just like a "Twonie Tuesday" deal.

I always end up buy-ing double because its on sale rather than one. 
Two pizza slices. Two ice cream scoops. Two bags of onions. 
Ugh.

There's a card.
And a scrapbook page.
Ta-Da!

The card is simple as it shows off the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, as well as the Perennial Birthday stamp set. One of my signature styl's is certainly simple and clean; however, I am a big fan of trims, ribbons and... well, "dangly, danglys" as my old Acadia University coach used to say when referring to our earrings. If you look closely you can see the Berry Burst "Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon trim", as well as the mini sequin trim hanging down the centre.


Do you see what I see...? The bottom half of my "Happy Birthday" sentiment is embossed in gold. 

How did she do that? It's simple. I stamped like I normally would with the Berry Burst ink pad. Before it completely dried I shook some gold embossing powder and set it with the heat gun. But I made sure that the powder only went on the bottom half. Yup. Not rocket science but still pretty cool.


The Painted with Love Specialty Paper is going to be a must have item for you. Each of the 6 double sided designs in this pack is foiled and absolutely stunning.  I used every morsel of this heart background paper in all of my projects.


Of course, true to my style again you can see the vintage lace trim and the new Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon (which resembles stitched fringe). You can also find mini sequins where I quite literally dropped them onto the page and then glued them on with the fine tip glue pen.


I am so happy that you dropped by for this amazing hop. I am sure you are starting to understand that the new Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions and Salebration catalogues are amazing! 

Keep hopping along to Diane Browning and all 20 of the display stampers!
Love,
Cathy

  2. The card is really you. A background and full of embellishments around the feeling. But it's so pretty with partial embossing. And I like scrap pages, yeah!
