Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop January 2019.

Hi! Welcome to Christy’s Stamping Spot. I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from Arizona, USA. Today, I’m excited to be taking part in Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.

Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil sheets
The Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick foil sheets add the “WOW” factor to your projects!

Sale-A-Bration has begun and Stampin’ Up! has packed the Sale-A-Bration mini catalog with awesome items to earn for FREE! And nothing adds the “WOW” factor to your projects like the Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. I combined the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP), Grapefruit Grove organdy ribbon and Foil sheets to create this card. I ran the foil through my Big Shot with the Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (DTIEF). All the foil sheets look fantastic dry embossed – but these new Sale-A-Bration foils really look spectacular!

You're so Awesome Grapefruit Grove Foil card

My favorite element of Stampin’ Up! is that everything matches – so layering the foil with matching cardstock, ink, and ribbon is a joy! The gorgeous Botanical Butterfly DSP also has splashes of Grapefruit Grove so punched butterflies were a fun addition. I added the Subtle 3D DTIEF Very Vanilla cardstock layer to frame the foil. I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock, punched it out with the Pretty Label punch, and also ran the piece through the Big Shot with the Subtle 3D DTIEF. I love the texture the Subtle 3D DTIEF adds to any project. I added a few basic clear rhinestones and Wink of Stella to the butterflies wings for added sparkle to finish the card.

You're Awesome Grapefruit foil card
And don’t forget the inside – I stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Gala on the Very Vanilla and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends.
