July 2020 Maui Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our July Maui Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme is "Current Products"!
I made this Pull Up Accordion Card using the scrumptious colors of Highland Heather, Purple Posy and Soft Suede.  It was so much fun to decorate each of the sides and get just the right items perfectly placed.
The stamp set is from the August-December Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! and is called Press On.  You can get this stamp set now in your demonstrator starter kit or it will be available to order on August 4. It was designed by one of my fellow demonstrators, Joyce Feraco, who earned the title of Million Sales Achiever.  This is one of my favorite all time stamp sets, as I am a HUGE coffee lover :)
How do you make this project?  Well, I am glad you asked.  To make this card you will need:

  • 4 pieces of 2″ x 10″ cardstock for your strips.
  • Score along the 10″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8”
  • 20 pieces of  1-3/4 x 1-3/4 plain card to mat.
  • 16 – 20 pieces of 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 of pattern paper to layer on top.
  • 1 piece of 6-1/4 x 6-1/4 cardstock for your base.
  • 1 piece of 6 x 6 pattern paper to layer on top of your base.
  • 2 pieces of 7/8 x 3-1/4 strips to hold your card together.
  • Some small circle die cuts to finish off the top where your ribbon will go.
  • Approximately 12″ of ribbon.
  • For the envelope, you will need a sheet of 9-3/4 x 9-3/4 scoring at 4-7/8 on your Envelop Punch Board.
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog: Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Kylie's July International Highlight

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.
Many these days forget those simple words - Thank you. Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you, supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.
For today's card I used a variety of items from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The sentiment comes from the Posted For You stamp set and is die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.  I also used the Postage Stamp Punch and punched out three rectangles from the Flowers For Every Season ds paper and layered them over some Misty Moonlight card stock.
The background is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder in Magenta Madness card stock.  I added a few In Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment layer for a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.
