Handmade Card Making & Paper Crafting Trends - Global Stampin' Video Hop July 2021 - Stampin' Up!

Today is another tutorial for the Global Stampin’ Video Hop on YouTube. Each month on the fourth Friday other Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world come together and share their projects based on a monthly theme. July’s Theme is Card Making Trends.

Did you know that many paper crafting trends come from home décor or fashion trends? It just takes a couple years to move from one area to another. So, if you want to be a trend setter, take a look at what is trending in other areas and most likely it will also show up in paper crafting. When thinking about my favorite things that are trending I gravitated to four different things. 1- blending, 2- warm color palette, 3- texture, & 4- house plants (love them!). I have used all 4 trends on the card I am sharing with you today. I hope this card inspires you to create something fun with one or more of your favorite trends.

Make sure to check out what everyone makes for this monthly Video Hop. You can start with my video, I have linked it below. You can find the next video at the top of the video’s description on YouTube. Have fun!

1- On 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Basic White Cardstock create an angled blended background using a blending brush and Cinnamon Cider & Cajun Craze. Blend so them meet together from the bottom left corner to the top right corner.

2- Add one Paper Lattice in the center and spread Shimmery White Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife. Spread over as much of the lattice as you want, then remove the lattice as soon as you finish so it doesn’t stick. Then clean the palette knife with soap and water. Let dry.

3- Once the embossing paste has dried trim ¼” from each side of the cardstock. Then stamp enough plants and planters to create three house plants. One large, medium, & small. Add them to the bottom right corner. Here are the combinations I used:

Large: Large Pot – Smoky Slate, Large Plant in Garden Green layered behind a Pear Pizzazz plant. Add with glue dots.

Medium: Large Pot – Cajun Craze, “V” Shape Plant in Evening Evergreen in front of the same plant in Garden Green cut in half and added at different angles. Add with dimensionals.

Small: Small Pot – Cinnamon Cider, Snake Plate – Soft Succulent Add with dimensionals.

4- Wrap 24” of White Bakers Twine around the bottom twice and tie a bow in front of the Cajun Craze pot.

5- Stamp your greeting in Evening Evergreen. Cut out with a label die from the Ornate Labels. Use the small stylus from the Take Your Pick Tool and emboss the edges of the label. Add over the bow and below the House Plants with dimensionals.

6- Add your choice of pattern from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the front of the cardbase. Then add the main piece to the center. Add some Champagne Color Elegant Faceted Gems.

All Done!
