Festive Friday Challenges #101 - New Horizons

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and an Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge FF #101 - International Wetlands Day


Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 

I created this calendar featuring the New Horizons Product Suite.  This suite is amazing!  The Designer Series Paper makes it so easy to create beautiful cards.  For my card today, I added some stamping with birds and a sentiment and then die cuts for the trees, grasses and fence and finally some of the amazing Pebbles for stepping stones.



Instructions
  1. Cut Night of Navy card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Stamp birds at the top using Night of Navy ink.
  4. Stamp sentiment at the top using Night of Navy ink.
  5. Cut out trees from Mossy Meadow card stock
  6. Adhere to the centre of the card
  7. Cut out grasses from scrap of Designer Series Paper (use the piece you cut off for this card)
  8. Adhere to the card base in front of the trees using Mini Dimensionals.
  9. Cut out 2 fence pieces from Basic White card stock
  10. Adhere to the bottom of the card using Glue Dots and Mini Dimensionals (to make it pop out).
  11. Add a line of Pebbles to create a path.
  12. Cut Basic White card card stock 4" x 5 1/4" 
  13. Stamp grasses in the bottom right using Mossy Meadow ink.
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card.

All of the supplies to make this card are available in my Online Store.

                          Creativity Abounds - January 2022 - Artfully Composed

                          Welcome to our Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can inspire you to make creations of your own. You may be starting here or you may have come from someone else's blog - either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed - so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin' Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin' Up!® teams. 

                          Here's our amazing Creativity Abounds Design Team! 


                          This month our theme is the Artfully Composed Product Suite! This suite is stunning.  We are also holding our 3rd Stamp Camp featuring this product suite. I will be demonstrating how to make this card in our Stamp Camp on Jan 28-29th.  If you didn't register for this Stamp Camp, stay tuned for our next one in April!

                          The Designer Series Paper is so pretty and makes it easy to create a beautiful card.  I used a couple of different strips of the DSP as a background.  I love the big leaf (I'm sure there is a name for this leaf, but I don't know it) - I stamped it and coloured it with Old Olive Stampin' Blends and then die cut it.


                          Here's the inside of the card.


                          Now it's time to check out the amazing projects from the Creativity Abounds Design Team:

                          I hope that we've inspired you.

                                                  Stampin' Up! Trip Achiever Blog Hop - January 2022



                                                  Today I'm excited to be hopping along with other demonstrators who earned the Incentive Trip last year. I hope you take the time to hop along with us and check out the amazing projects!

                                                  Have you noticed the Stampin' Up!® Rainbow of Happiness Bundle in the January to June Mini Catalogue?  I'll be the first to admit that it wasn't on my wishlist initially, but since I got it and have played with it, I'm in love!  All of the cards are so much fun!  and to make it even better, there is coordinating Designer Series Paper that you can get for free with a $60 CDN order during Sale-a-Bration!  Who doesn't love to get things for free!!!

                                                  I made this card for a recent swap with other Canadian Demonstrators and (spoiler alert!) I'm using it this week for our Make and Take for my Launch Party!  It was so much fun to make - I used Blender Brushes to colour the rainbows after creating a template from the dies.  This card is so bright and cheery, it makes me smile!

                                                  What do you think?
