Delicate Dahlias for Kylie's Demonstrator Training September Blog Hop

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

I love using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set for background patterns!  The stamp is a 'Distinctive' photopolymer stamp which means it has texture, depth and dimension.  And you can see through it to know exactly where you're placing it.  I used generational stamping to vary the depth of colour.   Enjoy and have fun playing with different palettes of colour.

Inks: Cajun Craze, Magenta Madness & Granny Apple Green

Tasteful Labels Dies

White Bakers Twine

Assembly & Trix:

***Trix, practise stamping the dahlia on scrap paper and play with the depth of colour that comes from Cajun Craze and Magenta Madness.   Generational stamping means to stamp once, (1st generation), then again without reinking the stamp, (2nd generation), then again (third generation)

*  Stamp using Magenta Madness three times to create a base background, then add Cajun Craze twice.

*  Stamp the sentiment using Magenta Madness and die cut using the Tasteful Label circle die.

*  Stamp the dahlia leaves using Granny Apple Green and fussy cut out.

*  Adhere the leaves to the back of the label using Stampin' Seal.

*  Tie a bow with the twine and adhere to the card base with a glue dot.

*  Adhere the label to the card base with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Enjoy the inspiration from this blog hop, and have a super day!
