Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop November 2018

Hi all! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Nov. 2018 Blog Hop for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This is an international Facebook group led by vivacious Kylie Bertucci from Australia. This particular hop has no theme so there should be an amazing variety of projects!

The cards I made were based on the Facebook Group,Colour Inkspiration challenge #44.
A Colour Inkspiration design team member chooses a Pinterest picture and the related colors for the challenge. For #44 - five colors were allowed: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz.
Before I started the card, I painted a test strip to see how the colors would work on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper. I knew Birthday Posies would be prefect for these colors.

Next, I stamped with Versamark the main designs and the small coordinating stamps. After sprinkling with white embossing powder, I heat-set the designs. Finally, I used Stampin' Up! re-inkers as watercolor paint and colored in the designs with a small Silver watercolor brush. I always seem to end up with lots of bits and pieces from trial and error!

Thanks for visiting my blog and please continue along with the hop to see all the amazing work from demonstrators all over the world!

Kylie's International Blog Highlight November 2018

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci International BlogHighlight for Nov. 2018! We are celebrating Stampin' Up!® 30th Year in November so we were challenged to say THANK YOU to Shelli Gardner, the founder, and tell her what Stampin' Up!® has meant to us. Without her determination and hard work to keep this company going none of us would have met one another, been inspired to do more and fulfilled so many awesome things. 

For me, Stampin' Up®! has given me a renewed interest in creating, painting and sharing the joy of working with paper. It has been wonderful working with and being inspired by people all over the world which never would have happened without Stampin' Up!®

To create my thank you card, I choose to use the Crafting Forever stamp set. As a decorative painter, I love to paint and use the re-inkers as a watercolor paint. The Stampin' Up!® watercolor paper works beautifully with a wet-on-wet technique. Stamp the design with Stazon ink. Next, wet the area you wish to paint with a light coating of water , Finally, using a wet paint brush pick up a very small bit of reinker and lay it into the water. Last tip: Always leave some white space...Magic!

I did repeat stamping with Sahara Sand and the beautifully scripted "Thank You" from the Kindness & Compassion stamp set for the background. The hearts are cut out (& punched) of the copper Joyous Glimmer Paper. In person, it is such a beautiful color.
