January 2020 NC Demos Blog Hop

Welcome to the January 2020 NC Demos Blog Hop.  The theme for this month is Sale-A-Bration, that wonderful time for the year where with a $50 or $100 purchase you get to chose something free from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  Such fun.

I decided to use the Happy Birthday to You stamp set for my card.  There is so much you can do with this stamp set.

I used Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue as my color theme for the card.  The card is Blueberry Bushel cut at 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  The Balmy Blue was cut 5 1/4 x 4 and I ran it through the Big Shot in the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing folder.

I just love the texture it gives. I put this on the front of the card.  I then took the largest die from the Stitched so Sweetly Die set and stamped the cake in Memento Black and the Salutation in Blueberry Bushel.  I then colored the cake with the following Blends the light and dark Balmy Blue the the dark Petal Pink the light Smokey Gray, the leaves in light and dark Old Olive and lastly the cake in light Crumb Cake.  It didn't take very long to color it in at all.

Once all the coloring was done I attached it to the front of the card with Dimensionals and added some bling from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Gems set.  I had to get a few of these sets the colors go well with so many cards I make.

I kept the inside simple.  I cut Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 and in Blueberry Bushed stamped the Happy Birthday to you.  And the card was done.

Thank you so much for stopping by this month please make sure to stop by each of the blogs of the blogs listed below to get a full Sale-A-Bration experience and some great ideas.  Until next month.

December 2019 NC Demos Blog Hop

Welcome to the December NC Demos Blog Hop.  I hope all of you have had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy New Year.

The theme for this months blog hop is THREE'S COMPANY.  We were asked to pick a stamp set and use it three times, sometimes hard and other times easy.  There are several stamp sets in our recent cattys that I absolutely love but there is one set that makes me smile every time I look at it at that is the SAB set Little Ladybug they are just too stinkin' cute.

This is the first card I made. I used Grapefruit Grove as the card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4 I then cut white 5 1/4 x 4 and stamped the flower and then colored it in with blends.  The 2 lady bugs were stamped on a piece of scrap white and like the flower colored with blends on in Light Cherry Cobbles and the other in Calypso Coral and put on a piece of black cardstock 4 1/8 x 5 5/8 and then put on the cards with Dimensionals and finished with the Holiday Basic Jewels.  Inside I kept simple just stamped the little lady bugs across the bottom,

They are so cute.

Then next card is a little bit different instead of a white background I used DSP from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 DSP pack.  The card is Balmy Blue and the colors work great together. For the lady bug I went off the grid and did one in blue somewhere there are blue lady bugs  The cards measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 and the DSP is 5 1/4 x 4.  I used the Old Olive sheer ribbon on the left side with a bow and stamped, colored and fussy cut the flower and the lady bug and added them with dimensionals.  To finish the card I added those blue flowers from the Flower Faceted Gems set they fit perfectly for this card as you can see from the close up here.

For the inside on white 5 1/4 x 4 I used a strip of the left over DSP and I had another flying lady bug so added one to the inside of the card.

My last card is 3 x 3 and very simple.  Stamped the Salutations on the card added the lovely Real Red Double Stitched ribbon and then a bow.  Then colored the lady bug with a Real Red marker cut it out and put it on the card with dimensionals.  Put a few holiday gems on the lady bug and I was done. 

Here are the 3 cards together they just make me happy every time I look at them.

Thank you so much for stopping by make sure you go to the next person on the list and see what lovely things they have done.

Hope you all have a very Happy New Year until next month.
