Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - Stampin' Up! ® Thank You Cards


Hello Stampers!

Welcome to the Decembe 2022 Kylie Bertucci Demonstrator Training Blog Hop. I almost didn't make it this month. I had to be out of town for two weeks visiting my grandson in the State of California. He had shoulder surgery so my daughter and I left and drove 36 hours straight. Let me tell you it was a long trip! I just got home this past weekend and it's been non-stop catching up. 

This Blog Hop is for Demonstrators from around the world wanting to obtain business and personal goals. One area that we work on is Blogging. I have been doing this now for a year and really enjoy it. However, I still need to get in the habit of blogging more often. That's a goal for 2023.

Since I was short on time I chose to focus on the beautiful Lights Aglow Designer Series Paper (DSP). Unfortunately this paper is no longer available. It was my favorite from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Keep in mind the card can be made with any DSP Stampin' Up!® offers.

I kept the fold simple, the card base is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 2-1/8" and 4-1/4. I wanted to get two cards from one 6" x 6" piece of paper so I made the DSP 3" x 4-3/4". The mat for the outside is 3-1/4" x 5" and the inside layer is 3-3/4" x 5". I used Starry Sky with Very Vanilla, and Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, and Basic White for the second card. The snowflake die is from the Frosted Flurry Die set and the greeting is a brand new stamp set available in January, Something Fancy. I love the fun font. I used the second smallest circle die from the Stylish Shape dies. I embossed the left flap with the Snowflake folder from the Wintry 3D folders.

Stampin' Up! ® Three on Thursday with Suzie Q's Stamping

 Hello fellow stampers!

November has been so busy I feel like I am running in circles. I had the privilege of attending On Stage in Arlington, TX the weekend of November, 5th. I had such an amazing time meeting other demonstrators from across the US. So many new ideas, seeing New Product coming in January, and meeting new friends. It was a great experience for sure. If you want to experience this, you can! Join my community of  Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators. 

Now onto todays cards. Very basic cards but oh so fun to make. I used the Trees For Sale stamp set to create a colorful Christmas card, using Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide, and Gorgeous Grape. I embossed the greeting with white and fussy cut around it. The second card is using Crumb Cake as the base, Early Esspresso for the mat, and the beautiful Abigal Rose DSP, with a hint of Petal Pink. The last card was made using the Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack with the Matching cards and envelopes. Santa Express Memories & More can be found in the Mini Catalog on page 17.

November 2022 Kylie Bertucci Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - Hello Harvest Bundle


Hello everyone! Welcome to the November 2022 Demonstrator Training Blog Hop. I must say that November has been busy for me. I just returned last night from Arlington TX, after attending Stampin' Up! ® On Stage. This was my first ever live event and I met so many people who share my passion for stamping. I hadn't had time to design my customer thank you cards before leaving so that was the first thing, I did this morning after unpacking. 

On to the reason you are here. Each month a group of demonstrators from around the world participate in this blog to help grow their business and reach personal goals. I love doing this and wasn't sure I would be able to participate this month. Here are my cards that each customer will receive along with a tutorial on how to make it. 

I chose to use the Happy Harvest Bundle and paired it with some Designer Series Paper from the Host Pack, Design a Daydream. I think my customers will love how fast and simple this card is to reproduce.




I hope you liked these simple cards, now hop on over to the rest of the blogs and see what others have created this month.  

Do what you Love, Love what you Do!

Three on Thursday with Suzie Q October 20, 2022

Hello my stamping peeps! Welcome to another Three on Thursday. I am trying something new and hope it works out better for you. 

If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrator please contact me for a catalog. 

Our first card for today was made using the Apple Harvest stamps from Stampin' Up! ® This is a simple fun fold that packs a WOW!

Sweet Sorbet is the main color for this card. The Desinger Series Paper is the 2022-2024 In Color DSP pack. Stampin' Blends were used to color the image. Find the full PDF Tutorial by clicking the link. Apple Harvest

Have you started on your Christmas Cards? Here is an easy card to duplicate using the Christmas Lights Dies from the July to December 2022 Mini Catalog. The card base is Eveing Evergreen with a Very Vanilla layer. The greeting comes from the Hope & Peace stamp set. This is a great set to have with wonderful greetings for the outside and inside of your cards. Gold embossing powder was used for the greeting. Click the link for the full tutorial. Christmas Tree Card

I just love the Hello Harvest Bundle and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper. This card may look difficult to make but once you have all the supplies it goes together relatively fast. Click the link for the full tutorial. Hello Harvest

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you try making one of these cards.
