Wow, time does fly! I was honored to be invited to join the Watercooler Blog Hop for it's 3rd Anniversary. I was one of the original blog hoppers for that very first Watercooler Blog Hop and we are all back celebrating our three years of "hopping" together. We have all moved in different directions from that very first hop, however, one thing is consistent, our customers love seeing different styles of cards and projects which a blog hop provides.
My first project is an Anniversary card, using Stampin' Up!'s One Wild Ride stamp set and Banners for You stamp set.. This is my first time using this set and I loved how my idea for this card came together. Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator can be "one wild ride", however, as the inside says "life's a journey enjoy the ride". So let us celebrate all demonstrators sharing their talent on blog hops.
Stamps: One Wild Ride – 141724 , Banners for You – 141710
Cardstock: Basic Black 4 1/4" x 5 1/2, scrap; Whisper White 4" x 10 1/2" scored at 5 1/4", 2 pieces at 3 3/4" x 5", scrap for the banner piece, Crumb Cake scrap
Ink: Momento Stamp Pad, Versamark Stamp Pad, Marker: Basic Black
Acessories: Big Shot , Bunches of Banners Framelits Dies, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, Linen Thread, Copper Mettalic Thread, Wink of Stella Clear, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots
Tip: Glue the Banner onto scrap of Basic Black Cardstock and hand cut the border.
My next project features one of the stamp sets that has survived since being introduced in 2013, Stampin' Up!'s Wetlands! It is very vesatile and can be used for any type of card, I love it. For this card I will give basic directions that you can use on most bendi (or bendy) cards.
1. Stamp background on 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" neutral cardstock.
2. Sponge background to create sky, water, sand, etc.
3. Using your background as a guide, decide and then stamp the foreground pieces that you will trim to create the 3-D scene.
4. Sponge these pieces.
5. Create your tab by using a ruler to draw a line 1/2" from the end opposite the 1/2" score line. Make sure the tab is tapered a little to make it easier to insert. Erase pencil marks.
6. Adhere side pieces to card back.
7. Figure out how much bend you want on the middle piece, hold it in place and mark where your slit needs to be cut. Open up piece and cut slit and check size. Remember you can always make the slit longer, you can't make it shorter.
8. Repeat with other piece marking where the slit will go on the bend of the middle piece and mark with pencil. Open and cut slit.

I love Stampin' Up!'s Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. It is perfect for this quick and easy card.
1. Stamp greeting in Basic Gray on DSP and glue to Basic Gray CS. Then glue to Very Vanilla card.
2. Stamp saying in Basic Gray on Very Vanilla CS and glue onto Basic Gray strip. Glue inside card.
3. Stamp flower image in lower right inside corner.
Didn't I say quick and easy – You could make 8 cards in 30 minutes.
One of the cards we made last month at my January Workshops was this Wedding card using Stampin' Up!'s Big News (#134015 wood, #134018 clear) and Awesomely Artistic (#138694 wood, #139950 clear) stamps sets. This card is quick, easy, clean and simple.
I love CAS (clean and simple) cards, especilly when I don't have 3 hours to make a card!
Here are two more cards from my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bundle card class:
This one has a vintage feel and was the favorite of most attendees.
This one is more monochomatic with just pinks and the pearls added the perfect embellishment for the flowers.
Did you watch the video on my previous post? Brandy gives you tips on using this bundle.
Here is one of the cards we made at my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bundle Class last week. Everyone had fun learning how to use the new Stampin' Up! Die Brush set, Precision Plate and the beautiful Bloomin' Love Bundle.
If you look close you can see the subtle sponging I used on the card edges. Look how the die brush removed every bit of the cut outs. This would make a great Anniversary card, Birthday card, or Valentine's Day card.
