Stampin' Up! Creating Kindness Blog Hop 'Support or Friendship'

Stampin' Up! demonstratrice Stampin' Sacha - Creating Kindness Blog Hop "Support or Friendship"

stampin sacha, creative kindness blog hop support or friendship

Today is my first day I'm joing the (video) blog hop as a member of the wonderful Creative Kindness Design Team and I'm so excited and honored to be a part of this team! The theme for this month is support or friendship. So when I made my card the person I was thinking of popped straight into my mind (and if she's reading this, she knows that I'm talking about her). True friendship is really hard to find and should always be cherished. Knowing that you'll always have someone to laugh and to cry with is worth more than words can say and what friend doesn't need a hug every now and then?

The card I've created for you today is a Pop Up Book Fold Card. It's called that way, because if you open it, it looks like a book. I've used the Lots of Love stamp set and the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I just love this designer paper with the beautiful colours and flowers! The card I prepared for the video was with Powder Pink Cardstock, but for the video I used Pool Party. I don't know which one I love more.

The banner I embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder. The raised part I gave some glitter with my Wink of Stella. It's the little details that give the card some extra interest. Because I used Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder for the card in my video, I used Copper Trim for my bow. I think it's so clever that you can split the ends of this trim!

  1. Beautiful card Sacha, love the pop up book fold inside. The dsp and sentiments are just gorgeous and truly shows the love throughout. :)

    1. Thank you so much Juan! I'm glad you like it! xx

  2. Hoi Sacha, ik denk dat m'n vorige reactie niet goed is doorgekomen, dus hier nogmaals :) Wat een leuke kaart heb je gemaakt. Mijn voorkeur gaat denk ik uit naar de Pool Party versie. Vind het heel leuk dat je nu met ons mee hopt, hopelijk kunnen we elkaar 'live' ontmoeten tijdens On Stage volgende week :)

    1. Dankjewel Danielle! Ik vind het ook hartstikke leuk om deel uit te maken van het team en een hele eer! Jammer genoeg ben ik niet bij on stage, het was zeker leuk geweest om je live te ontmoeten! 😊

  3. These cards are really beautiful! Looking forward to more fun hops with you xx
