Hey Chuck Card & Blog Hop

Hello from Saint Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada! I'm just across the border from Calais, Maine, USA. Both communities are part of the traditional territory and current home of the Passamaquoddy, and I'm grateful that they share this beautiful place with us.

Today we're hopping across the Stampin' Up!® world, with the Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop. I'm honoured to be part of this talented international community!

Please be sure to check out the Blog Hop Links near the end of this post, to see all the other cards.

This month, we're featuring the whimsical Hey Chuck Bundle in both our blog hop and monthly tutorial bundle. (Did you know you can receive the tutorial bundle FREE when you order with me in December?)

I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post. 

Here's my card:

Even though a lot of winter holidays happen in December, I decided to go with a birthday theme. That way, we can use the card for December and January birthdays.

But my colleagues in this group have created some terrific holiday cards with this bundle, so make sure you check them out!

Here's a look at the bundle:

To make this card, I started by cutting two circles with Stylish Shapes Dies, going with the sizes that fit my chosen sentiment and images. Then I stamped my images and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I coloured the images with Stampin' Blends™ in Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, and Flirty Flamingo.

My colour scheme came directly from the Merry Bold & Bright DSP. Although it's a holiday paper, it includes many patterns that are cheerful additions to year-round projects:

Next, I attached a 3 3/4" x 5" panel of DSP to a 1/2" x 5" strip of Basic White Cardstock. (I used household tape on the backs of both.)

I stretched a length of Real Red ribbon from Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo around the panel I'd created, securing on the back with Mini Glue Dots™. I also added a bow.

Then I used Stampin' Seal to attach the larger circle to the panel, sliding it a little way underneath the ribbon. With Stampin' Dimensionals™, I added the smaller circle and attached the panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crushed Curry Cardstock card base. 

My final step was embellishing with Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio.

Friends, I hope you enjoyed my project! Please check out the other cards and also my Special Offers, below.
