Tutorial Bundle Design Team January Hop – Just Because

Tutorial Bundkle Design Team Blog Hop

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team where I share a trio of cards featuring a new stamp set (Just Because), new framelits (Rectangle Stitched Framelits), new Stampin’ Blends (Mossy Meadow & Balmy Blue) and a carry over favourite (Buffalo Check).

Just Because Trio

The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

The Tutorial Bundle  

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products. 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, bags, boxes, and lots of paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects, many featuring new products from the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochure which both went live yesterday!!! The tutorial bundle has so many ideas to inspire you.
Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
You can purchase the Tutorial Bundle for $NZ20, or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

The Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

To celebrate the release of the January Bundle, the Design Team is holding our monthly Blog Hop.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I have a trio of cards featuring the Just Because Hostess Stamp Set and the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to share today. My Tutorial Bundle project also uses the Just Because stamp set and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. But it is a different card than those here in the Hop!
We often overlook the Hostess Stamp Set. But I fell in love with the imagery of the Just Because Hostess Stamp set. This set is in the Occasions Catalogue that went live yesterday.
(Note: If you live in New Zealand and would like a copy of the new catalogue then please email me jackie@creativejax.co.nz )
 Here is the stamp set
Just Because
The only way to purchase Hostess stamp sets is with Stampin’ Rewards. Anyone can earn Stampin’ Rewards – you can host a party where the orders total over $300 – or you can place your own order of $300 – gather orders from your friends which total over $300. 
You can see in the image above that the three botanical images in the Just Because set have words that are very close. In fact each of these images and words are one stamp as you can see below. 
But if you look closely at the stamps you may notice something…

 … I’ve cut the stamp so I can use the images without the words. I decided I would often want just the images. Or I may wish to swap the sentiments. So rather than masking or colouring the stamps each time, I would simply cut them apart!
But if i want to use them together, they easily line up again.
Back to my cards!
Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, I stamped each of the botanical images from Just Because onto a square of Very Vanilla cardstock.I then coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends.
For the image above I used the Crumb Cake Light Stampin’ Blend along with the newly released Mossy Meadow Light Stampin’ Blend. I also used another new Stampin’ Blend – Balmy Blue Dark while creating my card trio.

After colouring, I used two of the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to cut out three panels on each image.

I cut out three panels from each of my three botanical images. 

Next I inked up a returning favourite from the Holiday Catalogue – the Buffalo Check Stamp – with Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink using sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp.

For my first Just Because card, I simply popped the panels onto the card front using dimensionals.

For my second Just because card I wrapped some Old Olive Linen Thread around the card front before attaching the panels with dimensionals.

And the last card in my Just Because trio also has some of the Old Olive Linen Thread – this time as texture behind the panels.

I’ve chosen not to include ay sentiments on the cards – Just Because!

Here they are together again.
