Kylie's Demonstrator Monthly Blog Hop - August 2020

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are keeping healthy and safe and are finding time to be creative! 

Today I'm participating in Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  I'm so excited to be part of this training program and happy to in this 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 share ideas and to learn from each 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.  You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada. 

My card features the Poinsettia Place Product Suite.  I've been having fun with Window Gatefold cards. I love these cards.  Today's card is a Window Gatefold card and the Poinsettia Petals Bundle is perfect for this style of card! 
I love the combination of Real Red and Brushed Copper Foil.
The Poinsettia is on the belly band
The Beaded Pearls are amazing!  I've used almost a full package of them!

Please take some time to check out all of the amazing creations from around the world:


  1. Cut 2 pieces of Real Red cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  Fold on score lines.
  2. Emboss the front 2 1/8" x 5 1/2" flap on each piece using the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder.
  3. Lay the two pieces on the cutting platform for your Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine.  Use post it notes on the front and back to hold the two pieces together.  Lay the largest poinsettia die over the middle of the fold and run through to cut out the poinsettia.  You are cutting through 2 pieces of cardstock, so you may have to run through a couple of times.
  4. The two pieces will fit together to form your card base.  Trim 1/8" off of the left hand side - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece. Adhere the two pieces together using Stampin' Seal to form your card base.
  5. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 4" x 11" and fold in half.
  6. Layer inside of your card base. 
  7. Stamp the poinsettia flower through the window opening using Real Red ink.
  8. Adhere the Very Vanilla piece to the back of the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  9. Cut a 1" x 11" piece of Real Red cardstock and wrap loosely around card to form belly band.  Adhere the ends together using Stampin' Seal.  Trim excess off.
  10. Cut a 3/4" x 11" piece of Brushed Copper Foil.  Adhere to the belly band using Stampin' Seal.
  11. Cut out and emboss 3 poinsettia flowers from Real Red cardstock.  You can cut and emboss the flowers in 1 step using the 2 die pieces for each size flower.
  12. Gently curl the petals using your Bone Folder.
  13. Adhere the flowers together using Dimensionals.
  14. Cut out sprigs from Brushed Copper Foil.
  15. Cut out leaves from Plush Poinsettia paper using Paper Snips
  16. Adhere sprigs and leaves to the back of the poinsettia flower using Glue Dots
  17. Adhere to belly band using Dimensionals
  18. Cut a 3/4" x 2" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Stamp sentiment using Real Red ink.
  19. Punch out each end.
  20. Adhere to belly band using a Glue Dot.
