Hello and thanks for joining us for Kylie’s Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop!  We are so happy that have joined us today for this blog hop full of ideas and creative inspiration.  We are part of a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world participating in a training program that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business while reaching for our individual goals.  We greatly appreciate your support.


You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

A week ago, I attended the OhMi INKspirations team meeting at my upline's home.  It was a fun-filled gathering with lots of creativity that was much needed for this homeschooling mom!  The highlight of the evening for me though was our card swap!  I hope that my card for the swap inspires you in some way to use your dies for creating 3D aspects for your projects.  


I was inspired by a home decor piece that I spotted last weekend while shopping for some last minute Christmas gifts!  It was a wood star with little decorations in it!  Needless to say, the crafter in me knew I could recreate what I saw, but even better than the mass-produced machine made inspiration.  **wink**

The thick Whisper White top folding card base was layered with a Basic Black layer that was embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  The mini Buffalo Check pattern from Tiny Keepsakes made the perfect backdrop to the Pinewood Planks Stitched Star filled with Snow Globe Scenes Dies and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies elements.  A double Stitched Star embossed star was layered on top with a mini Billie Bow (wrapped around two fingers instead of the usual three) made from Linen Thread which was adhered with a mini glue dot.  


The Merry Christmas to All sentiment was heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder onto Real Red cardstock and fussy cut to size.

CRAFTERS TIP:  For my original card, the top star was adhered with Foam Adhesive Strips; however, while creating the multiples with a time constraint, Fun Foam was used with liquid glue... definitely a time saver!

    1. Thanks so much, Melinda! As I was describing my card at the team meeting I also mentioned how hard it was to glue the star to the card front as it would make a lovely ornament or gift tag, too!!!! ;)

  3. Love your cards. I love the non-traditional Christmas colours. I did mine in non-traditional using the Brightly Gleaming suite.

    1. Thanks, Kylie. I felt that the pops of Old Olive were reminiscent of the gorgeous Green and Black Buffalo Check from last year while the pop of Real Red reached out to the Red and Black Buffalo Checks seen so much since fall.
