New at SU Blog Hop – Step-it-up with the Beach Day Bundle

Hello and welcome to a very fun New at SU Blog Hop. This month we are stepping it up with products from our January – April Mini Catalogue. We are creating a simple stamping project and then using the same products to step it up for an avid crafter.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve chosen the Beach Day bundle which is very much in season here in Australia and created 3 versions of a card which is suitable for whatever level of crafting you are at right now – or dependent or the time you have to create!


The Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper provides a ready made shaded background for this card. Repeated stamping and a bit of ink blending make this a quick and easy card to make. Colouring was minimal with the surfboard coloured in just Calypso Coral and fussy cut to create a feature on the card.

Tips to keep it simple

  • Use your Designer Series Paper for maximum effect
  • Use just a few colours


I stepped this card up by colouring the other 2 surfboardsa and adding the die cut element of the wave. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock which coordinated with the Azure Afternoon card base and the layout was slightly changed to accommodate the wave border.


A bit like the ‘burger with the lot’, the Artfully Avid card tends to add more technique into the mix. I’ve incorporated a bit more die cutting and lots more layers and detail.

I added more ink blending which really makes those surf boards look like they are on an Aussie beach. A cute die cut sandcastle incorporates the elements from my previous cards to give continuity to the step-it-up theme.
