February 2022 Kylie's International Blog Highlights Contest

It's time for the next challenge in Kylie's International Blog Highlights where the theme is "Thank You", and projects voted in the top 10 go on to participate in Kylie's Winners Highlights Hop later in the month.

I am always learning even as a demonstrator and I took a class that showed us how to use our Designer series paper a dozen ways. I love tearing paper. I also love tying fancy bows. I first created this card while I was designing my valentine's card class. 
I used Sweet Talk 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper to create this #simplestamping customer thank you card on basic white card stock. I added a fun fancy bow and fussy cut the hearts from the DSP. See the supplies I used below. 
Don't forget, voting is only open for one week and I would love it if you could pop on over to Kylie's blog to vote for me - I am listed at #, and while there, vote for your other four favorite cards. Click the below button to head over to Kylie's blog:

Demonstrator’s love to create alternates to stretch the kit as far as we can and to show you how to continue using the stamps. I usually get to see tons of inspiration before I get my kit delivered but this month to inspire my ideas. This month because of shipping delays I received mine first so I started just playing with the stamps. I created backgrounds and stamped on a cloth mask.
It really is fun to just play!

Happy Stamping! 

I love to create Avid cards and rarely make a simple card but this Designer Series paper from the New Horizons Suite is just stunning all on its own. It makes a simple card easy then when you add the cute die cut fence, die cut grass and those Pebble gems it’s awesome! It’s really my favorite Suite from the Jan- June mini catalog. 

The sentiment “It’s ok to feel the feels” is from the “ Special Moments” sentiment stampset in the Sale A-BRATION free with $100 purchase and only available until February 28th 
It is full of great sentiments. 

I love to create reels making cards,

The idea for this card came from a card layout I saw somewhere, I don’t remember where. I I had to create a card for our team blog using Sale A-Bration products and this stamp set Catching Butterflies paired with the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper spoke to me. I found th trick to designing is to find a layout you like, pick the stamps and pair with DSP or dies and there you have inspiration! It really is that easy with Stampin’ Up!
