Ornate Garden Suite

For that past few years, Stampin’ Up! has released a whole suite before the annual catalog and I’ve loved it! This year the suite is called Ornate Garden Suite. I’ve shared the samples below on my Instagram, but I’ve also seen some of my favorite stampers share some beautiful samples.

This suite includes 2 stamp sets, 2 coordinating die cutting sets, Specialty Designer Series Paper, a 3D Embossing Folder, Ribbon, and beautiful Gilded Gems. All of these items can be ordered a la cart, but there is also an I want it all button (154153) where you can order the whole suite using one item number!

The Specialty DSP has gold foil designs that you can color in with your Stampin’ Blends or leave without color for a stunning look. You get 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 designs. Coordinating Colors: Early Espresso, Gold, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, and a brand new In Color!

The Ornate Thanks stamp set speaks to me, I love a good set of sentiments! I’m so excited to add this to my collection and use all of the different phrase combinations!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: March 2020

Hi Everyone! I’m so happy to be able to participate in this monthly Colour Combo Block Hop! It helps me to see colors that I wouldn’t normally use working together.

To create the pattern on my stitched rectangles I used a baby wipe wrapped around a clear block. I dotted ink along the edge of baby wipe and brushed it over whisper white cardstock. Then I die cut and arranged them on my card front. I love this technique for when I can’t find DSP that coordinates with my project.

Colour Combo Blog Hop: January 2020

Welcome to the first Colour Combo Blog Hop of the new year! Thank you so much for joining us this month. If you’ve come here from Sandra’s blog make sure you continue on the hop and leave love with each creator.

I’ve been trying to participate in as many challenges and blog hops as I can to help build traffic to my blog, but mostly to help me use my stash of supplies! I’ve always been a craft collector and more recently I’ve started to be more of a crafter!

I created this card using a brand new bundle from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog called So Sentimental Bundle. The stamp set has a bunch of really great sentiments and the dies (called Stitched So Sweetly Dies) have the stitched scallop rectangles and the stitched labels. I know that I will be using this stamp set and these dies for so many cards!

Below is the list of all the items I used to create this card! If you click on one it will take you to my store. If you don’t already have a demonstrator in the US I would be delighted to help you.

Please continue on the blog hop by clicking the next button above. Don’t forget to leave a note of love for each crafter as you stop by.

Stamp n’ Hop: SAB/Mini Catalog Showcase

Hello everyone! Welcome! I’m so excited to be kicking off the new year with my first blog hop with the Stamp N’ Hop stampers. I created this card to showcase items from either the Sale-a-bration Brochure or the 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly occasions).

While there is some super cute stuff in the SAB Brochure, I chose to focus on the Mini Catalog. That’s truly the hardest part of a new catalog launching. There are always so many ideas and new products that picking just one suite to focus on can be a challenge!

Below I’ve listed all of the products that I used to create this card. If you don’t currently have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I would be happy to help you! Just click on the thumbnail image of the item you love and add it to your cart.

You can also use my January Host Code to earn some Extra Sparkle for free! Check it out here!

November 2019 OnStage

I made this card for one of my organized swaps for OnStage back in November. I’m finally getting around to sharing it here on my blog.

Stamp ‘N Hop: Anything But A Card

Welcome to the monthly Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop! This months challenge was to create Anything But A Card! Most of us are card makers (I need to work on being a card sender) and don’t often make other types of project so hop along with us to see what we’ve made this month.

I made these cute little match book treat holders for the Stamp ‘N Hop challenge this month to make Anything Buy A Card! These are so cute and easy to make for any time your need to give out a little treat. I used the Wrapped in Plaid Suite for a Christmas themed treat holder, but you can make them any theme you want!

I also made one using products from the Dino Days Suite that could be birthday themed! Now, I didn’t plan ahead and take pictures of the process or measurements for this project. However, there are tons of tutorials for Matchbook Candy/Treat Holders on the internet that can be adjusted to the size of your treat!
