Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop - Carry Over Event


Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the  Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Carry Over Event Blog Hop! Each month our very talented and creative team of designers will be bringing you inspiration. You may have just arrived from the wonderfully talented Kaylee Van Es' Blog. I just LOVE her gorgeous, bright color palette!


This month's hop will be a little different from previous hops. This time each team member will be offering projects that are designed to be used in classes or events, or maybe you're a hobby demonstrator and you are just getting your feet wet. These are projects to help you create and hold your first class. The great thing is that these ideas all can be used for avid classes as well! So get comfortable and have a ton of fun hopping along with us and getting ideas.

I will be showcasing the Botanical Bliss Bundle. Isn't it stunning?! What I love about this set is that it offers so much!  There are 11 rubber stamps and 6 gorgeously detailed dies!

 What I wanted to do for my class is to offer mini lunchbox note cards. There are so many moms and teachers in my life that are eager to learn fun and thoughtful ways to tells their kids that they are thinking of them while they are at school. My mom and teacher friends have a blast getting together to chat and create these sweet little personalized notes. So I have designed 3 different 3 x 3 note cards. All supplies will be listed below so you can easily recreate this class. 


My first card features one of the delicate dies cut in Whisper White Cardstock and layered on to Bermuda Bay Cardstock. I have used coordinating ink colors to stamp my backgrounds. I used my Sponge Dauber to ink on some Bermuda Bay Ink onto the tiny bird to highlight it. I also die cut a leaf flourish from some Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. One of my favorite details on these tiny cards is the sweet little white heat embossed  Vellum flowers. I think they add the perfect touch! 


My other cards are done very similarly to help with the ease of the class and you could easily just have one design that is repeated with each color. Part of my layering also includes some Lace Trim and Gold Metallic Thread. I think this adds so much texture and interest.


These products were so fun and inspiring and I know I'll definitely be using them again. I hope you have enjoyed all of today's cards and designs (full list of supplies below). Make sure to contact your local demo and see what classes they hold or even sign up as a demo and you will already have 16 class ideas right here!

For this hop, we are featuring the Incredible Like You Stamp Set. I have made a lovely Mother's Day card with this stamp set. It's really so beautiful and versatile!

I wanted a fun embossed textured background so I used one of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper pieces to create a stencil I could use to add Embossing Paste

Here's a close-up of the embossing:


  I also wanted my flower to have a bit of dimension so I stamped a few flowers in Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut away some of the petals to layer onto my main flower image with Dimensionals. I just love the look! I used one of my newest favorite die from the Everything Is Rosy Set to add some delicate leaves to finish it off.



Well, that's my card for today's hop! Thanks so much for hopping along! Your next stop is my lovely and talented crafty friend Tanya Boser! Check out her gorgeous blog and projects!

Everything Is Rosy Album - Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Corporate Blog Post



Everything Is Rosy Memory Album

Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren Alarid. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in California and 2019 Artisan Design Team member, and I am so happy to be sharing my creativity on the company blog. Today I wanted to share with you how I created this “Everything Is Rosy” memory album. It features the new Everything Is Rosy Medley Kit (150059). This ridiculously gorgeous kit took my breath away from the moment I first saw it. From the perfectly coordinated items, to the drool-worthy double-sided Designer Series Paper (DSP), I was completely inspired! And let’s not forget about the brand-new Rose Gold Shimmer Paint! I just can’t stop making pretty things with it!


Now because this kit is packed with SO many goodies (It’s basically a “suite-in-a-box”), I knew that I would have plenty of product to work with to create an entire album (and then some). Here's a look at the kit in case you missed it in my previous hop:


 In today’s project, I have created a mini 6” x 6” album that is so simple and so fun to make.
To build the basic structure of your album, you will need 12” x 12” Whisper White Cardstock (124302). Here are the steps:
1.   You will cut this paper directly in half so that you will now have two 6” x 12” pieces.
2.   Repeat this step until you have as many pages as you’d like in your album.
3.   Score each cut sheet in the middle at 6”.
4.   Adhere one side of your scored sheet to the side of another scored 6” x 12” cut piece. Repeat this step until you have adhered all the sheets together. When you are done, it should look like a book.
5.   Next, take a piece of chip board or cardboard (I use the ones that come with my DSP packs) and cut two pieces that measure 6” x 6”.
6.   Lastly, adhere the first page of your 6” x 12” cut page pieces to one side of the cut cardboard and then adhere the last page to the other piece of cut cardboard.


Next you will need to create the binding. The first step is to choose one of the patterns from the 6 x 6 DSP and cut it at 6” x 4”. Then adhere it to the front and back edges of your cardboard cover pages evenly. Take either another piece of coordinating DSP or coordinating cardstock (I chose Melon Mambo Cardstock (115320) for the front and for the back I chose the piece of DSP with navy and gold foil leaves) to cover the rest of your album front and back. I used the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (148026) to emboss the Melon Mambo Cardstock for added texture. Where the binding and cover pieces met, I used the beautiful coordinating ribbons from this kit. One is a lovely Night of Navy with rose gold metallic trim and the other is a Melon Mambo Ruched Ribbon.


For the inside pages I mixed and matched the DSP with coordinating cardstock, and used a the fun printed floral and the rose gold die cuts that come in the kit to embellish my pages. I included a few word die cuts in Night of Navy (100867) and Melon Mambo Cardstock from the Well Written Framelits (148534) as well. Other than the word dies, cardboard, and some ink pads, everything I used to create this album came from the kit. Here’s a look at a few of the page spreads (below):



I also added a few extra details to my pages for more interest. I stamped a few flowers in Powder Pink Ink (147147), dabbed on Melon Mambo Ink (147051) around the edges or center of my flowers with my Sponge Dauber (133773), and layered them throughout my album. To get a fun speckled look with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, I took a toothpick and cut off the tip to give it a blunt end. Then I shook my shimmer paint up well and dipped the blunt end of my toothpick into the lid to pick up some paint. Then I just dabbed on a few dots here and there as accents.


I hope that you have enjoyed this handmade memory album. I truly had so much fun putting it together and the perfect coordination of this kit made choosing paper, elements, and accents to adorn it a no-brainer. The best part was that after creating this entire album, I had tons of product left over! You will definitely want to get your hands on this kit while you can! It’s to die for!
