Artistically Inked for Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Winners Blog hop

Hi, Crafty People!
Today I'm joining Kylie Bertucci and a group of very talented demonstrators for a blog hop around the world. I'm so excited to be participating, again, in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop July, 2021, hosted by Kylie Bertucci! I earned this honor with my card, Sailing Home, placing in the top 10 of Kylie's July, 2021 International Highlights Challenge. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card! As I'm thanking you for voting, I should be sending all of you this thank you card!
Wouldn't you just love to receive this thank you card? This card is a tri-fold card using the beautiful Artistically Inked Designer Series Paper. Take note of our beautiful Metallic Gold Specialty Paper.

Below is my card opened up. You can see another piece of the designer series paper here. There's just enough space for your thank you note. I also used the beautiful die from Artistic Dies for the leaves.
Below is another die from the Artistic Dies set. It is a beautiful set.

This is a side view of the card closed up with the belly band on it.

What's Cookin' for the Share It Sunday Blog Hop

Hi, Crafty People!
Today I'm hopping with the Crafty Collaborations team, which is a global group of fellow Stampin' Up demonstrators. We are Sharing it on Sunday! So let's get hopping along.

Today I'm sharing a card my customers made at my last classes. This was a fun card to make for a couple of reasons: it was a new fold I haven't taught before and it wasn't flowers!

This card was made with the What's Cookin' Bundle, which is such a fun bundle to play with. The style is the book bind fold.
This is the fun-fold inside.
The colors of my cooking utensils remind me of the Tupperware my mother used when I was going up.
I used silver foil for the spatula, whisk, and the knife blade. 
To give more definition on the cutting board, I applied Soft Suede ink to the die before cutting the Crumb Cake cardstock.
Instead of going through all the instructions and measurements here on my blog, just click on the box below for a complete tutorial.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you'll come back. Please visit all the fabulous demonstrators' blogs by clicking on their names below.

All Occasions Cards Classes

Hello, Crafty People!
Just wanted to let you know that my All Occasions Cards Classes are coming up soon. You will make 3 cards, one of which is pictured above, and the cost is $15 which includes printed instructions and envelopes. All you need to bring are your scissors and favorite adhesives (I have plenty of adhesives for sale). All classes are held at my home.

Classes have almost filled up, but here is the schedule:

Monday, August 2nd at Noon  2 openings
Thursday, August 5th at 5:00  2 openings
Sunday, August 8th at 2:00  5 openings

Let's take a look at all the cards you will make.

This first card is not a card. It's a folder that holds 2 note cards. This is the front of the folder.
This is the folder opened up. Each person will have a different design from the Hand-Penned Designer Series paper that is on sale this month for $9.78.

This is one of the note card that will be included inside with its envelope. The paper on the notecards will match the paper the folder is made from.

Another card is the one pictured at the top that is made with the Forever Grapevine Bundle. I also used the Welcoming Window Bundle.
The third card I cased from the Annual Catalog on page 51. I couldn't wait to try out the new Diorama Dies, and I have always loved the Sailing Home Stamp set and the Smooth Sailing Dies that coordinate with it.

Let me know which day and time you would like to attend, but act quickly as the classes are filling up quickly. Hope to hear from you. Also, I've listed below the designer series papers that are on sale until August 2nd, so take a look.
