Clean & Simple Four Season Floral Card using the Suggested Stampin' Up! Starter Kit

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a clean and simple card design using only what's part of the Stampin' Up! Suggested Starter Kit and the Get & Go Promotion which is going on now.  All my projects this week on my blog and YouTube Channel will be using these items.  Here's a look at my card.  


This is a super easy card to recreate using the supplies that you can pick with the suggested starter kit and the card kits in the Get & Go Joining Special this month.  I used one of the Granny Apple Green Card bases that is part of the Get & Go Special as well as the Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay Strip.  I stamped the image from Four Season Floral Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink onto the Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  I added this layer onto a 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Whisper White.  

Stamped my sentiment in Bumblebee Ink onto the Daffodil Delight strip and wrapped it around the card front.  Secured it in place with Stampin' Dimensionals and placed it on the card base.  I added a few rhinestones for a little bling.  I told you this was a clean and simple card.  

The Starter Kit is always a great deal and now with the Get & Go Promotion it's even better. The Stampin' Up! Starter Kit is only $99 with free shipping and you get to pick $125 worth of Stampin' Up! products! But with the Get up & Go Promotion you get But with the Get & Go Promotion you also get 16 card kits, The Queen Anne's Lace Stamp Set, the So Much Love Stamp Set, a pack of Basic Rhinestones, and Instructions to make the 16 cards FREE! With my local tax it's a $193.98 value for only $99. And that doesn't even includes the benefits Stampin' Up! offers or the benefits to being on my team of Kinsmon Crafters. Read all about the benefits of joining here! If you purchase the supplies I used today alone before shipping & taxes you would spend $121.00! Join my Team and save!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop - Harvest Moon

 

Hello and welcome to the September Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that love to share fun creative projects with the world.  Each month we do a blog hop on the first Friday of the month in the US and comparative time in the other countries we have members in. With each new hop is a new theme and this month's theme was Harvest Moon.  I used this month's theme and went with things that represent Fall and Harvest time to me. Here's a look at my project.  


 I used the Autumn Greetings Bundle from Stampin' Up!'s August-December Mini Catalog for my project today.  I started out with my card base of Thick Whisper White Cardstock and added a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper in a fun Fall color themed pattern.  The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper has a ton of different plaid color combinations in it that can be used for different holidays, seasons, or occasions.  


I used my Stampin' Blends to color the large floral image from the Autumn Greetings Stamp Set.  I stamped the image with my Stamparatus in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink with my Stamparatus twice onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the following colors of Stampin' Blends to color with; Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, Mango Melody, Pumpkin, Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.  I used the matching dies to cut it out and popped it up onto a Ornate Frames Die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.  


My sentiment was placed on a Cinnamon Cider Cardstock strip that I heat embossed my sentiment on with Stampin' Gold Emboss Powder.  I added this to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to finish it off.  



Thanks for dropping by today.  If you are viewing my post by email you may not be able to see the blog roll.  If that is the case please click here to view the post.  If you need any of the supplies that you have seen you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the shopping list below.
