Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop - March 2022


I'm excited to be training with Bruno and Kylie again this year and participating in our monthly Blog Hop with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the program...to share ideas and to learn from each other...to help us in our Stampin' Up! Business. 

Today you will "hop around the world" and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.  I'm glad you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada.  You can visit all of the other blogs using the links posted below.

The theme is THANK YOU and I'm sharing the exclusive thank you card that you will receive if you place an order with me in March.

I've used the Abstract Beauty Product Suite from the Stampin' Up!® January to June 2022 Mini Catalogue for my card.  The Designer Series Paper is absolutely stunning so my cards feature different DSP patterns.  Add a layer of Gold Foil and you have a very pretty card!

It's hard to choose a favourite!  Which is yours?










Instructions

  1. Cut Card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Gold Foil 4" x 5 1/4".
  3. Cut out hexagons from the centre of the Gold Foil layer - this is a great way to save paper.  The holes you cut won't be seen!
  4. Cut DSP 3 3/4" x 5" and adhere to the Gold Foil.
  5. Adhere to the card base.
  6. Cut out a hexagon using the 3rd largest hexagon die from Basic Black card stock and Basic White card stock.
  7. Stamp sentiment using Ink that matches card base on Basic White hexagon
  8. Adhere hexagons to the bottom right corner.
  9. Adhere sentiment hexagon using Dimensionals.
  10. Adhere embellishments to match card base.
  11. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  12. Adhere DSP strip (1" x 4") to the bottom
  13. Adhere small gold hexagon.
  14. Adhere to the inside of the card base.
You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.

Tutorial Bundle for the Ukraine

In response to the ongoing crisis, the Creativity Abounds Team has decided to create a Ukraine Fundraising Card Making Tutorial Bundle. 


Who Are we?
The Creativity Abounds Design Team is a group of 13 Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. We come together every month to create a Tutorial Bundle, hold a blog hop and also host regular online Stamp Camps.

All 13 members of the Creativity Abounds Design Team quickly expressed their interest in helping to bring together this special, additional Tutorial Bundle. As this newsletter is sent, work is underway around the world to get cards designed and tutorials written and compiled.

We didn’t want to wait to start raising money though, because this is timely and help is needed now. Therefore the bundle is up for sale now. You can start to order and pay for yours and the tutorial will follow as quickly as we can bring it together. We envision it will be with you by the week beginning 21st March!

The theme for the projects is blue/yellow. I am excited to see what ideas everyone comes up with. I know they are all going to inspire you in your card making – and of course you will be able to change the colour of the projects to suit other occasions.

All the proceeds from the sale of these tutorials will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross as a contribution from the crafting community to the work they are carrying out with the people of Ukraine.

Stampin’ Up’s Statement of the Heart reads:
To LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love.
As we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments.
In this we MAKE A Difference.
The Creativity Abounds Design Team hope that in sharing what we love with you, together we might make a small difference.
 
How Can I Help?
Purchase your Tutorial Bundle now and we will deliver it to your in box as soon as it is available. We hope you enjoy all the projects inside.
Don’t hesitate to email me if I can help with your purchases, or if you have a crafty question.

  1. Thank you, Melva, for leaving a comment on my blog post. I've been scrolling through, but hadn't reached your post yet, I start where my name is and go up and down the list from there. I do love your cards. Simple cards with such beauty are so special. The package of Designer Paper is so beautiful. I wish they would carry it over so we could continue to use it in our samples.
