Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to my second post for today!  I am back with you again today for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Programs Monthly Team Blog Hop.  This is a wonderful hop and you will see projects from all over the world.  I hope that you will take the time to hop along with us this month.
If this is your first time here welcome, if you have dropped by again welcome back.  Here's a look at the project I am going to be sharing with you today.


For my card today I created a fun little Fall themed wedding card using the Bloom & Grow Stamp set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  My card is a monochromatic card using only Early Espresso and Copper.  I thought this was a perfect Fall color combination and it uses one of my favorite stamp sets.  I love the Bloom and Grow stamp set but I've not gotten to use it a lot so far this year.  I thought this was the perfect time to do so.  Fall is a big time for weddings and let's face it we can all use a few extra wedding cards that can be used for anytime of the year.
The Bloom & Grow Stamp Set offers beautiful decorative flower bouquets for all occasions.  All for you to color in! Which are just a few of the reasons I love it so much.  It's a perfect set to create all occasions cards with; almost everyone loves flowers and you don't have to use it as a coloring set; just like I did today.  I used it to create a stunning card with just stamps, ink, and paper.  I had the best time creating the focal image in the background and the copper embossing paired with the early espresso is a show stopper.  If you are wondering how I did this; well, it was super easy with my Stamparatus.  I arranged all the large floral images on the card front and closed the stamparatus door on it.  I then stamped in versamark ink and covered that section in copper embossing powder.  I then rotated the card front and repeated the process until I had everything covered.
While arranging the large images I was very surprised at how easily they all lined up, and sort of interlocked with the other images.  I then came back in with the smaller images in the set and filled in any holes I had in my design.  I then took my card front and ran my Versamark Ink Pad along the edge and dipped the edges in the copper embossing powder and heat set.  This created my mat for around the card.  I heat embossed my sentiment in a piece of Vellum Cardstock using the copper embossing powder.  I then cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and added it to my card front with a little liquid glue behind the lettering.  I then colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Bronze Stampin' Blend marker, I put a coat on and let it dry and then added another two coats of ink.  Once completely dry I added them to the card front.  I added some on the parts of the vellum that was hanging of on the card front to add a little extra security.  With the addition of the colored rhinestones I was finished with my card.
I hope that you like my little Fall wedding card for this month's blog hop.  If you are viewing this post on my word press site you will have to click here to go and view the blog roll.  The embedded code for the blog roll doesn't play nicely with word press dot com blogs.  So you will have to visit my new blog.
