What’s New at SU Designer Series Paper



Hi everyone!  Welcome to the What’s New at SU? blog hop.  This time we’re focusing on the amazing buy 3 get 1 free designer series paper sale happening right now at Stampin’ Up! for the entire month of July.  Not familiar with the sale? Not to worry, I’ve included all the information at the very end of this post including a great little video made by Stampin’ Up! and a downloadable PDF file of each of the qualifying DSP that is on sale.


Good morning everyone.  I used the Wood Textures DSP along with the coordinating Wood Words stamp set.  I decided to create a card that had a mystical feel to it, incorporating the triple moon and stars on the cat.  I really hope you like it.  Check back tomorrow to see how I created this card.

Ink & Share June 2018 Blog Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the June edition of the Ink & Share Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring summer cards.

I decided to use a stamp set that I had received during the April OnStage.  All demonstrators were given this stamp set and I thought it would be a great set to highlight during this hop.  The set is called Animal Outings and whats great about this set is that there is a matching set for your big shot.  It’s available as a bundle or individually.

To make the folded designer paper background:

  1. You’ll need a piece of designer series paper cut to 5-1/4″ x 10″.
  2. On both ends of the short side of the paper mark at 2-1/8″ and at 3-1/8″.
  3. On both top and bottom of the long side of the paper, mark at 4-1/2″ and 5-1/2″.
  4. Cut on the diagonal, using the marks as your guide.
  5. Score across the short side of the paper at 1″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4-1/2″, 5-1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7-1/2″, 8-1/2″, and 9″.
  6. Using your bone folder fold the designer series paper in an accordian fashion starting from the outside in.
  7. Secure to your card base using tear tape or the adhesive of your preference.

Paper Crafting June 2018 Blog Hop



I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring projects that are patriotic to the country the demonstrator lives in. Fellow demonstrators from all over Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and United States are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Ginger’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to use Colorful Seasons stamp set for it’s maple leaf and the Happy Birthday thinlet.  Combining the Labeler Alphabet stamp set with the Bunch of Banners framelits allowed me to customize the card to specifically feature Canada and reaching it’s 151st year of commemoration.

A helpful note**  It almost looks like ghosting on some of the letters and after making three banners trying to be very careful, I finally looked on the stamp case and realized that that is actually how the stamps are.  Note to self — intentional imperfections are perfect and that’s just fine!

The multi-purpose adhesive sheets made it a snap to get the Happy Birthday out and stick it to the card.  Those sheets may become my new “go-to” for adhering shapes run through the Big-Shot!

I also LOVE the new glitter shimmer paper – no getting covered in glitter which was awesome and ran through the Big-Shot with no issues as all!  I’ve stayed away from the glitter papers in the past just because I end up wearing more of it than I want but not anymore!  They are back in my favourites 🙂



My photography skills need a little work and this card is really lovely, “lipstick lovely” in  person 🙂  Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about my design.

Rooted In Nature – What’s New At SU


Welcome!  I am happy that you are joining us for our hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you.
Today we are featuring products from the Brand New 2018-19 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared today.

I decided to focus on the Rooted in Nature bundle.  I love the variety of stamps images and the available paper and embellishments that coordinate with it.


This next card is very simple and was inspired due to my stamping the sentiment just a little off and to save the paper I decided to shift it off square.
