Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop - October 2021 - Customer Thank You Cards

I'm excited to be starting another year of training with Bruno and Kylie and as part of that here's our very first blog hop from the training group.  I'm 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 November 8th.

I've used the Nature's Harvest Bundle for my card.  I created the background using 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper.  I layered them together and then cut them in different shapes - it gives you enough pieces to make 3 cards.  What a quick and easy way to create a beautiful set of cards!


  1. Cut Early Espresso card stock 4 1/4" x 11".  Score at 5 1/2" and fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Bumblebee card stock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and adhere to the card base.
  3. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper (I used 2 pieces of DSP with 1 piece of Cork) 4" x 5 1/4".
  4. Layer the 3 pieces together and cut into 3 pieces using your trimmer.  It doesn't matter what shape they are - just cut 3 pieces.
  5. Set 6 of the pieces aside to make additional cards.
  6. Adhere the 3 pieces to the Bumblebee card stock using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Stamp image on Basic White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colour with Stampin' Blends - Mango Melody and Soft Succulent.
  8. Cut out using Die and adhere to card base using Mini Dimensionals.
  9. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut out using Die.
  10. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere Gilded Gems.

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

Now it's time to check out all of the amazing projects from other demonstrators from around the world.  Please take the time to visit all of the blogs and leave comments:
