Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions + SAB Display Stamper Blog Hop 5

Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Occasions + Sale-A-Bration Display Stamper Blog Hop. We are Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all around the world who were chosen as display stampers at our recent OnStage events that took place all across the globe. Over the 7 days of the hop we will show you all the projects we made using the brand new products in the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues. Today is the 5th day of the hop.

Whether you are starting with me - Lou Kitzelman from the Sunshine Coast, Australia - or have hopped over from the uber talented and member of the current Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team, Tanya Boser, strap yourself in - you are about to see so many new products you just have to have! Better get that wish list handy!

Today I have some samples to show you using the gorgeous Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. Have I told you how much I love this DSP? It is so bold and graphic. Here I have teamed it with the coordinating stamp set, Petal Palette.

I fussy cut these but there are coordinating framelits that I can't wait to use.

This DSP works so well with lots of stamp sets. Here I have used another new set - Heart Happiness.

While I was making these samples I discovered my new favourite design element! I have used the straight banner from the Bunch of Banners framelits and just pushed the middle one through a bit. It adds a nice detail I think. Nothing creatively earth shattering but nice all the same!

And one more sample using Petal Palette. I have already shared it but it is another fave so thought I would give it one more time to shine!

Can't beat copper embossing and black!

Add in some 2 tone stamping to highlight the sentiment ......

.... and some mirror image stamping for fun!

Make sure you hop around to each blog. Be prepared to be amazed! If you miss any of the 7 days of the hop you can see all of my posts here. Next up is the incredibly talented member of the current Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team, Mindy Backes.

  1. Lou, I like your copper emboss and black combo. What a lovely card. How did you manage to mirror the bird?

    1. Hi Eva,

      Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and leave a comment. I have some information on how I did the mirror stamping for the bird. I stamped the image on a window sheet with versamark and then turned it over and 'stamped' that on the cardstock and embossed. It is not as crisp as when you stamp the image directly. Hope that makes sense. You can also use wax paper. A few years ago I did a post with some more detailed information in it. This might help. Please let me know if I can help. Lou x
