I Spy Amazing You Hop Design Details

Thanks for stopping back today after hopping along our Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop. If you missed the blog hop, click here to zoom to the hop.

I am sharing design details and supplies used to create my blog hop greeting card entry below. This card would also be fabulous on a scrapbook layout.

The crumb cake balloons needed a little jazzing up so I looked through my stamp stash and found a star stamp in the Better Together stamp set that was the right size. Strips of bermuda bay cardstock from my snippets bin were attached using the liquid glue. The snippets were custom cut off from the balloon using my Stampin’ Up! paper snips.

The next picture shows the Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon in bermuda bay prior to fraying in the bottom right. Gently pull the silver thread until the volume of fluffiness is reached for the tassel.

Next, use glue dots to attach the balloon tassels to the back of the crumb cake balloons. Use a mini-dimensional to adhere the balloon to the island indigo larger balloon. Both balloon sizes were punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch.

All the supplies used to create the blog hop card are included in the photo below. The second to largest size from the Lots of Labels framelit was used to frame the Celebrate You. Sale-A-Bration 2018 products include the Celebrate You Thinlets, Shimmer Ribbon, Amazing You stamp set and Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper.

ICS Blog Hop with Amazing You

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration 2018 products. I hope you are enjoying our stops. We have great projects to share with you!

My design includes the game of I Spy. Can you find where I used the Amazing You stamp set? Look towards the bottom which needed a little more detail to offset the balloon bunch. The rays in the bottom corner of the Lots of Labels framelit shape are part of the ray half circle stamp in the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Sometimes only a portion of a stamp is needed to add the final detail.

We were challenged to use the following color combination in our design. I used crumb cake, bermuda bay and island indigo cardstock along with bermuda bay ink. The Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper featured the star pattern in bermuda bay hues so that was my starting point. Check back tomorrow for full design and supply details.


I hope you are enjoying our color challenge using Sale-A-Bration 2018 products. Now click on the NEXT image to hop to the next stop at Audra Monk’s blog. Thanks!



Snowflakes inside but not out, CASEing the Blog Hop Design 7

As I write this post, we have yet to get snow that requires the snow blower to be fired up. I have been surprised when Jim has shoveled the few times we have gotten flakes because they could have just all blown or melted away. We still have many months of winter so I expect the flake count to start adding up. Until then, I will continue to create with my snowflake stamps in my cozy stampin room.

My snowflake design below was CASED from fellow Canadian demonstrator Elizabeth Green and her Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop entry. I mostly followed her card #2 design that you can see by clicking here. I helped coordinate this hop that has 15 stops. If you missed it, click here to hop along.

Our silver foil sheets emboss beautifully using embossing folders. I used our new Simple Strips embossing folder to draw the eye to the center of the card. The “amazing” was also cut on the silver foil sheet using the Sale-A-Bration Celebrate You thinlits that you can earn for free with qualifying order. I used our fine tip glue pen to adhere “amazing” to the card.

The clear faceted gem adds a nice detail…

Inside the card is decorated too. The exclamation point requires no additional paper or cutting. The “o” is punched from the “o” in the silver “you”. The top part is punched from the “g” in “amazing” from the card front.

Supplies used are below plus the Big Shot machine with magnetic and multi purpose platforms. The 3 layering circles framelits are from the Layering Circles framelit collection. 16 circles in that collection so it is a great buy!

*Update* It snowed over night. Looks like I’ll be getting out the shovel. Still snowing though so I may wait for a bit. It appears to be light and fluffy. Let’s hope it is to make it an easier job. My front step snowpeeps will be appearing while I am outside as is tradition with the first snowfall!
