This week has been a fairly busy week. I had my ProCRAFTinators Retreat last weekend and this weekend I have had Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage@Home event. So I really had very limited time to get the creative juices flowing. Having the challenge be a Layout meant I didn’t need to think of a design but did need to choose some products to use. I went with the early release Eden’s Garden Suite. This includes the Stamps and Dies and the limited release products of the cotton paper, designer series paper and the gems. If you love these papers and gems as much as I do, then you will want to get your hands on them quick smart as these are only while supplies last.
My card came together really quickly while I was in a break from OnStage@Home. I wanted to show off this suite and have a good play with it as I haven’t had too much time to just create for the sake of creating. On the white piece I have used my paper snips to rough up the edges around and repeated this process for the evening evergreen layer. To finish off the card I have use the gorgeous Garden Gems to help bring out the gold foil that is on the DSP.
My Card Design
In the first image below you can see the texture I created using the cotton paper where I using liquid glue and scrunch up the cotton paper and then layer onto the card front to get the crinkle look. The second image you can see that I have stamped the insert inside the card. I have also layered the white onto a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock to add extra details. On the envelope I have used the Designer Series Paper to decorate the back flap and I have stamped on the front as well.

Welcome to the August Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #33. You may have joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is a colour challenge. Initially I didn’t have any idea what I was going to create but after playing with a Sale-a-bration stamp set today, the card came together really quickly. The new Sale-a-bration Stamp set “Textures & Frames” which you can earn for FREE with a $90 purchase. I paired this set with the “Enjoy the Moment” stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.
We needed to use 3 of the new In Colors from the Annual Catalogue, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen. I chose to use the Tuxedo Black ink for the seed pod. Layering it onto a piece of Evening Evergreen and then onto a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock.

Forever Fern meets Simple Stamping today on my blog. This card is super simple to create with products you have already in your stash, once you add the Forever Fern stamp set.
I started off wanting to use a colour from each of the current In Colors that Stampin’ Up! have in their range right now. I chose the two greens within each collection which led me to Just Jade and Pretty Peacock. Stamping in Pretty Peacock ink with some of the ferns I then added some Bumblebee card as an accent and to cover up the end of the stems. The scrap piece was sitting on my desk at the time which made it an easy choice to use.
Adding the ‘Hello’ in Tuxedo Black Memento and the stamping is done. I layered Basic Black card onto the Just Jade card base and then realised that the whisper white was too long so rather than grabbing out my trimmer I chose to tear off the bottom. What do you think? Do the colours work? Forever Fern meets Simple Stamping – I must say the three colours have grown on my over the time.
I’m excited to be sharing this Blossoms in Bloom Stepped Up card today. Starting by inking up the blossoms stamp in So Saffron Ink and then using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write marker I added some colour to the edge of the stamp. I then overlayed the die cut blossoms from the Many Layered Blossoms dies using my Fine Tip Glue.
I have created a video for you to have a look and see how I have made this card. I’m very new to making videos but I wanted to share how I’ve created these cards.
Let me know what you think and share your projects with me.
At the conference we were at last month I needed to create a few cards as I was doing a workshop. Here is one of the cards that I created. I wanted to show how you can use some only a few products to create a card that they could duplicate.
Rather than using extra cardstock I punched the tailored punch out of the coloured card stock. Once the designer paper is layered on top you can’t even see where you punched.
I used the Animal Outing stamp set in the background. Then used the “Happy Birthday” from the Picture Perfect Birthday.
