NC Demo Blog Hop for April 2024 Onine Exclusives

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for April.  Our theme is Online Exclusives.  We post on the last Sunday of every month.  You may have just come from Tina Lesson's blog post.  Tina always has wonderful projects to share with you.  If you are just starting here, please take the entire hop.  You'll be so glad you did!

Online Exclusives

Did you know there are products available that are not in any of our catalogs?  We don't want you to miss them.  Just go to https://www.stampinup.com/ and then to Online Exclusives to see all of the fabulous products there.  Today I'll be using the Encircled in Nature bundle.

 

ENCIRCLED IN NATURE BUNDLE (ENGLISH)

 

Here is the card I made for you.

Encircled in Nature Bundle Card  Blends  Nested Essentials dies  Tinsel 3 Pack Gems  Petal Pink and White Diagonal Ribbon Combo Pack  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of the card is Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut a piece of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.  Run this layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder.  Glue to the front of the card base.

There are two circlular dies that fit one inside the other.  There are little knobs on each die to match up.  Cut these out together from Gray Granite card stock.  This will make a base for the wreath.  Glue to the center of the card.

Cut the other wreath from Basic White.  We will color in this wreath using our blends.  For the flower buds use the Fresh Freesia Blends Combo and for the stems use the Lemon Lime Twist Combo Blends.  Once you have colored the wreath, glue it over the gray wreath.  Just put a few dots of glue around on the flower buds.  Hold the wreath in place for a few moments.

Stamp the double flowers stamp on Basic White.  Stamp in Gray Granite ink.  Color these in with Lemon Lime Twist blends, Fresh Freesia blends, and Daffodil Delight Blends Combo.  Cut the flowers out with the Encircled in Nature dies.  Add to the lower right of the wreath with glue dots.  That will give it a little lift without using dimensionals.

Tie a bow with the Petal Pink & White Diagonal Trim Combo Pack.  Add with glue dots.

Stamp the saying in Gray Granite from the Encircled in Nature stamp set.  Cut this out using the Nested Essential dies.  Add this label with glue dots.

Complete the card with the Tinsel Gems 3 Pack.

Here's the inside of the card.  Cut a bit of the flower buds wreath and color.  Glue down.  The saying is from Encircled with Nature.

Tracie Evans Langley

Wow, Jo Anne! Your cardcis beautiful and perfect for Spring. I totally missed this bundle online. Thank you for sharing!

Toni Campana

As usual, Jo Anne, you draw me back to a set that I initially thought didn't appeal to me. I love the colors and the layout of your card. And I need to pull out that embossing folder more often, I have always loved the look of it.

Frances Wagner

Jo Anne, like others I totally missed this one. I love your card and the colors are so pretty. Thanks for sharing.

Laurie Meier

Jo Anne - I have to confess that I have not paid attention to the Encircled in Nature bundle -- but, now, I will! Your card is beautiful with wonderful layers, colors, and great details. Thank you so much for sharing!
