Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop - May 2021

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 again this year and happy to be participating 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.  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 from now until June 10th.  I love the Color & Contour Bundle and have used it to create this pretty Corner Tuck Card (thanks to Mo Dickie for introducing to this fun fancy fold!).  My card uses Blackberry Bliss and Fresh Freesia!  I love this colour combination!


  1. Cut Blackberry Bliss cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using Ornate Floral Embossing Folder.
  3. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut Blackberry Bliss cardstock 3 1/2" x 8" and fold in half
  5. Cut off bottom using scallop border die.
  6. Cut 2 pieces of Basic White cardstock 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  7. Stamp outline of flowers using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink randomly on 1 piece.  
  8. Stamp inside of flowers using Fresh Freesia ink.
  9. Add a small amount of Multipurpose Adhesive glue to the flower centres.  Add Gilded Leafing and remove excess.  Let dry.
  10. Adhere to the front of the small card base
  11. Stamp outline of flower using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in bottom right corner of second piece.  
  12. Stamp inside of flower using Fresh Freesia ink.

  14. Wrap Fresh Freesia ribbon around top of small card base and tie a small bow.
  15. Adhere the small card base to the centre of the large card base using Stampin' Seal.
  16. Cut Blackberry Bliss cardstock 2" x 2" and cut on the diagonal to form triangle.
  17. Add adhesive foam strip to 2 sides of the triangle and adhere to the card base lining up with the the edges of the embossed cardstock.  Make sure the corner of the small card tucks into the corner
  18. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  19. Cut out using 2nd smallest scalloped die.  Trim to 1 3/4" wide.
