I am in a group of demonstrators from around the globe - Global SU Share Fair - that puts on Facebook Live events. Today was our January Event, featuring Sale-A-Bration products. Here is the card I made:

It’s a Bridge Fold card using the Bundle Simply Succulents - dies and stamps, Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper, and Heal Your Heart provided the sentiment. 

We have a show special explained in the next photo. Click on the special to be taken to my shop with the code applied.

The great news is that the Simply Succulent Bundle is $54 so qualifies for the free Heal Your Heart stamp set.

If you live in the USA and do not have a demonstrator I am happy to help. Do you need catalogs? Please let me know so I can get them in the mail to you. Use the Connect button at the top of my blog.

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from the United Kingdom, Australia and the USA. We hope you enjoy the fun projects and design styles from this talented group. You may have arrived from Julie Mazur's blog, isn't her project fabulous!

For me, it was love at first sight with the Fine Art Floral Suite-stamps, dies, designer series paper, embossing folder, ribbon and so much more - wow! There is so much texture in the designer series paper and the colors are inspiring! You could choose any of the designs, here is a sampler for you to enjoy:

I stamped the flower using Poppy Parade ink onto white cardstock, using first generation ink on the detail stamp and second generation ink for the main image. I cut it out using the die then spritzed it with a mixture of Champagne Shimmer Paint mixed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. A picture can't do it justice!  I also stamped the leaf using Mossy Meadow Ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock, cut it with the die, then decided it also needed some sparkle so used Wink of Stella. 

Next I stamped my sentiment from the FREE (I do like free!) Sale-A-Bration set Heal Your Heart on Poppy Parade cardstock with VersaMark and used White embossing powder.  I used the Story Label Punch to cut it out. My card base is Mossy Meadow with a layer of gold foil and then the designer series paper layer. I used the Story Label punch to cut a piece from the gold foil to back the sentiment.

The Designer Series Paper is 4" X 5 1/4", Gold Foil is 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder added texture to the designer series paper(DSP) . After attaching the DSP to the Gold Foil I tied the Fine Art 3/8" ribbon with a square knot instead of a bow. Adhere to the Mossy Meadow card base. Add the remaining elements of your card with dimensionals - sentiment, flower, stem.


The insert and envelope have strips of DSP on them. 

Thank you for joining us on our blog hop. Click on next blog to visit Maureen Rauchfus and see the fun project she has designed.

If you like FREE and EXCLUSIVE stamps, dies, designer series paper, and embellishments, then you'll agree with me - the BEST time of year!

I'm getting excited! The next Facebook Live in this private customer appreciation group is fast approaching! My project is designed (using one of  the new sets from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog), the tutorial is written and emailed to our tech wizard (actually, her husband puts this together for us in a very professional way- Thank you Tracy and Wolfgang Held), an I am now awaiting all the fun! The tutorials (I think there will be 17 different project tutorials) will be the show special for this event.
