Stampin' Up! Hosts Rewards Stamp Set Blog Hop!


Hey there! Welcome to the "We (heart) Hosts blog hop! Everyone's projects are created using Host Reward Stamps from the new catalog, so you're in for some real treats!

For my card I used THREE Host Reward Stamp sets: In the City, Tranquil Tulips, and You're Delightful. I used a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper as my background on a Tranquil Tide card base:


 I cut out a vellum layer with a Lots of Labels Framelit, then embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. I accented the embossing by rubbing inside the leaves and stems with my Simply Scored Stylus. I stamped the lower tulip layer with Sweet Sugarplum ink, then stamped the top layer with Berry Burst; and yes, I did cut them both out with Paper Snips to layer together and add to the Whisper White oval with dimesnionals. I stamped the stems and leaves with Ranquil Tide ink, cutting out the leaves and adding them with liquid glue.


 We have new sequins in the catalog, MINI sequin trims! Available in black, gold, and silver, I pulled a few black ones from the string, adhering with a tiny drop  of Fine Tip Glue.


I stamped the greeting from In the City with Tranquil Tide ink on vellum, then punched with the Classic Label. I applied a thin coat of liquid glue so the adhesive wouldn't show through the vellum.


 Inside I used a sentiment from the You're Delightful Host set. and stamped the tulips directly on the layer.


 Now it's time to continue on the hop to see all of the other inspiring creations! You know you're going to want to have a party so you can get some of these sets for free!



Here's the one caveat with these great Host sets: you have to either host a stamping party, catalog party, or place an order of your own of at least $150 to be able to "spend" you host reward credit on a Host set. But hey, I'm sure that really won't be a problem with all of the lovely new things in this catalog! Contact me if you would like to host an in-person party or catalog party.

That's all for now, have a Stampingrox! day!
