New at SU Blog Hop – Hello, Irresistible Suite

Hi friends, Welcome to our New at SU Blog hop for August where we are featuring some of our suites in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and Online Exclusives range. I’ve chosen the Hello, Irresistible suite which is part of our Online Exclusives range.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

The Hello, Irresistible suite includes a stamp set and coordinating dies, Designer Series Paper and embellishments. The dies cut out several of the images in the Designer Series Paper, including flowers and leaves.

161154, Hello Irresistible Suite, Stampin' Up!
Colour Palette New at SU Blog Hop, August 2023

My card centred around that one flower which I heat embossed in Clear, stamping with Sweet Sorbet ink on Basic White Cardstock. I created 3 flowers which were watercoloured in Sweet Sorbet and Calypso Coral with a Water Painter. Then I cut them apart and layered each one to form a 3D flower.

I followed the sketch at TGIF Challenges and used some of the beautiful DSP for the top section of my card. I die cut the border also from DSP and blended Sweet Sorbet ink along the bottom edge.

Several leaves were die cut from the DSP and from Basic White Cardstock to fill out the flower.

For the banner, I die cut Soft Sea Foam Cardstock with the detailed die from the Irresistible Blooms dies. Then I adhered this to a piece of Kraft Notecard which I finished off by die cutting with the banner from the Nested Essentials Dies.

Thank you for stopping by to see my project. I hope you found it ‘irresistible’ and if you haven’t got this suite will consider adding it to your next order.

Next on our hop is my friend Angie McKenzie and I can’t wait to see her beautiful project with the Inked Botanicals suite. Follow our hop through for lots of suite inspiration and please leave a comment as we love hearing from you.

Christmas with the Zany Zebras

It’s a Fairy Tail Christmas theme for Day 13 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge . Not a fairytale as we would picture it but with the emphasis on ‘tail’ I was off selecting a cute animal stamp. With so many cute animal images in the Stampin’ Up! product line, there were quite a few to choose from. I chose the Zany Zebras, well, for the pure zaniness of a zebra at Christmastime. Who needs a reindeer when you can have a zebra right?

The 3 cute zebras in this stamp set also tied in perfectly with the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink Challenge #522.

This layout made it really fun to create this card as it looks like the zebras are having a good old chat working out where they are going on their next shopping spree!

I added some fussy cut images from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to create the Christmas feel. The sentiment is also from the DSP and layered on a label from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.

Get Sketchy with Kits to go

Stampin’ Up! offer us a great range of papercrafting kits to help us get into the fun of creating without the hard yards of prepping. Two of these kits are the Gorgeous Posies Card Kit and Boho Indigo Product Medley. I’ve combined both of these beautiful kits to create my card today in Bumble Bee and Night of Navy. The Bumble Bee brings a warmth and brightness which is quite cheerful. 

Gorgeous Posies stamp set and Boho Chic Product Medley combined for a sketch card

The Very Vanilla embossed cardstock is from the Product Medley which also includes other patterns in embossed cardstock. The main flower from the Gorgeous Posies stamp set has been fussy cut and topped with a flower from the Boho Indigo Product Medley. I coloured this with the Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend.  

The leaves were stamped in Balmy Blue and then shaded with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for more depth. I also coloured the label with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend to coordinate with the rest of the card. Some long gold foil leaves have been added to create height against the smaller leaves.

International Women’s Day – #gdp230

Celebrating the ladies in a special way today with International Women’s Day. Every day is Women’s Day I know because there is SO MUCH women take on and do in their stride. 

Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper

My card  today is to celebrate wonderful YOU! I’ve used the Beautiful Moments stamp set and paired it with some fussy cutting from the Timeless Tulips stamp set.

I’ve used the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is a Sale-A-Bration Coordination offering. This DSP coordinated with the Tulip Builder Punch, Heart Punch Pack, Umbrella Builder Punch and Small Bloom Punch – that’s a lot of images you can get out of this pack without doing one bit of colouring in.


The Beautiful Moments stamp set has images of women and little girls. This would make beautiful Mother’s Day cards and also great scrapbooking pages.

Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #230


My card has been inspired by this sketch from the Global Design Project.

All products I’ve used are listed at the bottom of this post. There’s still a couple of weeks left of Sale-A-Bration and you can a get free item with any $90 order. The free goodies will be while supplies last so if there is a particular item that takes your fancy, I recommend you don’t wait so you don’t miss out.


Enjoy your long weekend and remember, you are a blessing!

To an A+ Teacher – Sunday Stamps ssc216

Hi crafty friends,

It’s coming to that time of the year when we start thinking of teacher appreciation gifts and cards. In my daytime job, I work in a school office. At Christmastime it’s such a lovely feeling when everyone exchanges gifts and all the staff pigeon holes are overflowing with cards, chocolates and other lovely surprises. This card using the Harvest Hellos would be the perfect thank you for an A+ (for Awesome) teacher. 

This bundle comprises of the Harvest Hellos stamp set which includes a pumpkin as well which can be punched out with the Apple Builder punch. Purchase the bundle and you save 10% and this applies to all bundles in our catalogues. This makes a nice saving.

Teacher thank you card with apple coloured with Stampin' Blends

The apple and leaf have been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with a combination of Stampin’ Blends. Then these were punched out and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stem has been punched out from Early Espresso cardstock.

I used the Stitched Labels dies for my sentiment and embellished the cards with the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels which are another one of what I call, ‘hidden gems’ on Pg 58 of the Holiday Catalogue. 

A+ Teacher Apple Thank you card
