Pretty Pop-Ups Die for #GDP350 & Demonstrator Training Blog Hop July 2022

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Welcome to the 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.

Today's card sketch was inspired by the Global Design Project #350  & what a lovely surprise - thank you Design Team for giving my card a Special Mention this week! :)

Assembly & Trix:

*  Die cut Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, #149612 using the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies.  ***Trix, pass the die through the machine a few times to crease the thick watercolor paper.  This die is super neat because some sections will cut out and others will impress the image, allowing you to 'pop up' some of the image later.

***Trix, the die depresses the thick watercolour paper creating a bit of a border, around the outside edge of the die.  Use this as a guide to apply a base of water using Water Painters, #151298 


*  Dab or wash on colour - Here's the question - Which card do you prefer, blue or pink?  The blue card uses Tahitian Tide & Parakeet Party, (2022-2024 In Color).  The pink one uses Polished Pink & Pale Papaya, (2021-2023 In Color)  

*  Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 watercolour layer to a Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Stamp the sentiment using the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set, #159238 and embellish with 2022-2024 In Color™ Matter Decorative Dots, 159186 or Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon, #155672
