I’m honored to be in an international group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who are being highlighted today by Kylie Bertucci. I am in the US. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop, so please vote for my project here.

Our theme for this highlight is encouragement. We could all use a kind word now and then to build us up, right?


Here’s what I made:



Here’s how I did it:

The card base is Basic Black card stock, with a piece of Very Vanilla CS glued to the inside for a handwritten note. The next layer up on the front is a piece of Delightful Dijon CS. Then there’s a layer of Urban Underground Designer Series Paper.

I adhered a piece of Delightful Dijon ribbon to the DSP with Fast Fuse.

I stamped the sentiment and thumbs up image, from the new Iconic Occasions host stamp set, in Versamark ink onto a small piece of Delightful Dijon CS, then heat embossed it in clear. I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Basic Gray and Basic Black to ink it up as shown, then wiped the excess ink off the embossed areas. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


Here’s what I used:

Iconic Occasions stamp set (#143196 wood $18, #143199 clear mount $13.50) Available January 4, 2017.


Please head over to Kylie’s blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop with her!

Thanks for stopping by today, and Sweet Stamping!
