Hello, and welcome to this month’s NC Demos Blog Hop!  We are SO glad you are here!  If you haven’t already visited Laurie Meier’s blog, be sure to hop all the way around.  You will be glad you did!

This month our talented group of demos have created projects featuring our favorite Online Exclusive products paired with a returning favorite that will appear in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. If you haven’t haven’t seen these amazing products be sure to visit my Online store and get your favorites!

I immediately fell in love with the Tropical Leaf Bundle and had to have it!  I love it so much that anyone who orders it before June 15th get three exclusive card kits for FREE from me because I know you will love it, too!   Click here for more info and a sneak peek at one of the card samples.  I also loved it enough to create my Shoebox Swap for our NC Demos Quarterly Meeting which was this weekend using this versatile bundle and thought it was the perfect time to share it with you.

Along with the Tropical Leaf Bundle, I used some returning favorite colors of mine AND a new In Color, Copper Clay.  I love the new In Colors and the ribbon is some of my favorite in years!  It is SO soft and easy to tie and use.  I know you are definitely going to need it in at least a couple of the new In Colors if not in all five!  If you haven’t seen the new In Colors or the Refresh, Click Here to see them now!

Okay, so enough of the babble, let’s get on with making this fun and easy card!

Here are all the measurements:

  • Crushed Curry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4
  • Garden Green 4 x 5 1/4
  • Copper Clay 3 3/4 x 5
  • Old Olive 1 x 1 3/4
  • Copper Clay Textured Ribbon 4 1/2 – Hint: fray the end and attach with Tear & Tape.

Once you have all the cardstock cut the card goes together pretty quickly.

Stamp the large leaf randomly in Garden Green onto the Copper Clay cardstock.  Don’t forget to stamp one on a piece of Copper Clay and punch it out.

Stamp the small leaf in Old Olive.

Stamp the large leaf in White Craft ink.  Set the stamped piece aside to dry.

Stamp the Hello onto a piece of Old Olive and then punch the ends using the Happy Labels Pick a Punch.

Once the stamped piece is dry assemble your card and decide who is going to get a fun tropical hello for you!

Thank you for letting me share my card with you.  I hope I have inspired you to create something fun.  If you have questions or need help placing an order, please contact me.   I would love to assist you.

I am all done for now, but am going to hop on over to see what Tina Lesson is sharing.  She always creates something great!  You will definitely want to come along!

Thank you SO much for hopping along with us tonight!  Until next time…

Stay Safe & Crafty!
