ICS Blog Hop It's A Girl Thing

Welcome to the April 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "It's A Girl Thing", all things girlie. For me, flowers are my favorite girlie thing. I love treating myself to fresh flowers. I'm eagerly anticipating next month when I can plant lots of colorful flowers in my garden bed. All of the projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy the hop.

For this blog hop post, I chose to show a few of my favorite retiring In Colors - Bumblebee, Just Jade, and Magenta Madness - with an easy card layout and sentiments from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set.  I hope you love these bright, cheerful cards perfect for Easter and Mother's Day but many other occasions as well like birthday, thinking of you, and so much more.

Daffodil Daydream meets Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

I am sharing some of my all time favorite products in this video demonstration. I've combined one of my favorite bundles from the January - June Mini Catalog, Daffodil Daydream, with a favorite from the Annual Catalog, Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. The finished cards are beautiful and perfect for sending Easter Blessings or spring greetings or many other occasions. In this Facebook Live video replay, I give you some tips for organizing all those Daffodil Dies (there's a lot) and 3 charts to make assembling the daffodil pieces a lot easier. I also demonstrate creating a second card. This one is made with the Daffodil Daydream stamps and colored with Stampin' Blends, my favorite coloring tools. So whether you want to die cut daffodils or stamp and color them or both, you've got some tips and inspiration to help you get started.

Daffodil Afternoon Gift Card Holder & More

It was a cold, wintery day in central Ohio on Friday, January 7th, but I was able to bring some sunshine to the day when I chose to use the Daffodil Afternoon Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper to feature in my projects. I love that everyone has the opportunity to earn this beautiful Designer Series Paper Free. Yep, it's true. Place a $50 order and choose Daffodil Afternoon DSP or one of several other products from our Sale-A-Bration Brochure. AND, did you know that the Daffodil Afternoon DSP coordinates with our new Daffodil Daydream Bundle in the new Mini Catalog? I love Stampin' Up!'s coordination of products, colors, and themes. It makes creating extra fun and easy!

In this video replay of Friday's Facebook Live, I demonstrate how to make a Gift Card Holder using a 3" x 12" strip of Daffodil Daydream DSP. It's a easy layout to replicate on your own and is great for birthdays, graduations, weddings, and so much more. I'll also show you cutting dimensions and card ideas for another sheet of the pretty Daffodil Daydreams DSP to help you make a nice assortment of Daffodil Afternoon cards including some slimline cards.

Easiest way to use Gilded Leafing

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.

To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.

Download Project Sheet - Art Gallery Card in Merry Merlot 

Art Gallery Stamp Set & Gilded Leafing by Stampin' Up!

TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.

Easy Punch Art

I love punches. How about you? And I'm always intrigued when I see punches used in unique ways, in ways other than they are intended for. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate making 2 different cards featuring some of my favorite retiring punches - Balloon Bouquet, Story Label, and Small Bloom. I also show you how to use a couple of these to make "vases" for our small blooms punched from Designer Series Paper. You are going to love these springtime cards!
