VLOG Hop Sketch Challenge - Hand Penned for the win!

Hi friends!

It's Video Blog Hop (VLOG) day! The participants in this Global SU Share Fair VLOG Hop are located across the globe. This month were holding a Sketch Challenge. Each of us took the challenge to create a project using the same sketch.
VLOG Sketch

I started with the Hand-Penned designer series paper (DSP) picked my cardstock, Garden Green, from several that coordinates with it and paired them with the coordinating stamp set, Hand-Penned Petals.
 

While I mostly followed the sketch measurements, I did make changes to the layout by turning my design on the side to make a landscape card.

12 Days of Christmas - Friendship Sampler for an 8 x 8" Shadow Box

Hi friends!

Art Gallery with Beauty of Friendship Sampler Shadow Box

I'm sharing the project I stamped live today in the 12 Days of Christmas & More Facebook group.

I made a sampler featuring the Art Gallery stamp set, a sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set, and dies from the Penned Flowers die set. The In Good Taste designer series paper (DSP) I used added texture while the Gilded Leafing and Champagne rhinestones sparkly gold accents.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Gift Card Holder

Hi Friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month we are sharing gift packaging projects. Each hop participant, talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, created a packaging project. Each month we share projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Julia Quinn's blog. Wasn't her packaging project wonderful!

I love giving gift cards as gifts. They always seem to be the right size, color, or something the recipient had a hankering for 😉

Another demonstrator, Joy Nelson, shared the template for this gift card holder during a stamping party we held in a private Facebook group, WooHoo Weekend. It was new to me and I fell in love with it! If you would like access to our WooHoo Weekend group, hit me up. I'd love to have you join us.
Whimsy & Wonder DSP with Christmas to Remember sentiment

Inside the card the gift card is revealed

My version features the lovely Whimsy & Wonder designer series paper (DSP) - it's one of my favorite DSPs in the Holiday mini! 

For the sentiment, I used a stamp for the Christmas to Remember stamp set for the front that picked up on the the holly in the DSP. I added a bit of bling with the Gold Holly leaves and rhinestones I colored using a Stampin' Up Flirty Flamingo alcohol Blends marker.

Whimsy & Wonder DSP #156329
Whimsical Trees #156330
Inside I used the holly image from the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set with alcohol Blends markers and a greeting from the same set.

Thank you for hopping around the world with us. Keep hopping to see even more projects celebrating December! Click on the Next Blog image below to Joy Nelson's blog see her wonderful project.

No Longer Taking Backorders 
Starting 1 December 2021, Stampin' Up is no longer taking backorders. We anticipate that this change will be in effect for the foreseeable future. Global supply chain difficulties have worsened as 2021 progressed, and they’ve culminated in what is now considered a global supply chain crisis affecting businesses worldwide—and Stampin’ Up! is no exception. In September Stampin' Up lowered their backorder thresholds in an effort to address global changes. Industry experts are projecting that the global supply chain crisis is unlikely to improve for some time to come. By eliminating backorders Stampin' Up hopes to eliminate frustration from the unpredictability of product availability, especially when products have been ordered and paid for but are not in stock.
