Penguin Playmates Sneak Peek Card for the Stamper's Showcase July 2021 Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing a sneak peek at some of the new products coming up in the August - December Mini Catalog & Sale A Bration Brochure.  
I'm normally a bright, sunshine & flowers type of girl, but I just couldn't resist the adorable images in the Penguin Place Bundle and coordinating Playful Playmates Designer Series Paper!  They're just too cute!
I predict they will be SUPER popular so you better make sure you order them first thing the catalog goes live on August 3rd.  If you want to get a head start you can pre-order them now by joining my Creative Cardiology Team of demonstrators.
I fussy cut them from the Penguin Playmates DSP and interlocked their "arms" so it looks like they're hugging.
I'm excited that SU! is introducing a White Glittered Organdy Ribbon in this seasonal catalog too.  It adds the perfect amount of sparkle to this Wintry card!
Here's another view of these Penguin Playmates.  And there are more friends too - including a fox and polar bear!
Card Base:  Fresh Freesia cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score & fold at 4 1/4"

Stampin' Up! You're a Peach Designer Series Paper Projects for the Creative Cardiology Team July Blog Hop

Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team July 2021 Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects featuring Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous Designer Series Papers - specifically those that are on sale for 15% off this month!  
The sweet peaches in the You're a Peach DSP were just screaming to be made into a scrapbook page so that is what I created.  I sized the Basic White cardstock photo mats at 3 1/4" so that I could fit 6 3" photos onto the page with a nice 1/4" border around each one.  Quite often I find it easier to create my page first and then add  my photos later - this actually helps my pages come together faster and prevents my layouts from all looking the same.
I love the painted watercolor look of the peaches from the DSP so I fussy cut them directly from the paper with my snips and popped them onto my page with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I used the Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourishes and a delicate bow of Pale Papaya ribbon as the finishing touches - adhering them to my page with Mini Glue Dots.
Page Base:  Basic White cardstock 12" x 12"
Layer 1:  Pale Papaya cardstock 10" x 10"
Layer 2:  Basic White cardstock photo mats 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" (need 6)
Layer 3:  You're a Peach DSP striped pattern 3" x 10"
Layer 4:  You're a Peach DSP polka dot pattern 1/2" x 10"
Layer 5:  You're a Peach DSP floral pattern 3/4" x 10"
Layer 6:  Basic White cardstock banner 1" x 4"; end flagged with Banners Pick a Punch
Layer 7:  You're a Peach DSP fussy cut peaches
Pale Papaya Ribbon - approximately 6"

Stampin' Up! Daisy Garden Card for the Summertime Florals Stamper's Showcase June 2021 Blog Hop


Welcome to the June 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects inspired by "Summertime Florals."  In upstate NY some of the most prolific summertime florals are Daisies, Brown/Black-eyed Susans, and Blue Chicory - so I decided the new Daisy Garden background stamp would be the perfect image to use for my card!
I stamped my Daisy Garden background onto a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock using Early Espresso ink, then colored the images with my Watercolor Pencils, and then used the Blender Pens to give them a more painted look.  The Bumblebee Trinkets add the perfect finishing touch!

Card Base - Crumb Cake Cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score at 4 1/4" and fold.
Bumblebee Cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" & scrap for scalloped oval punch
Crumb Cake Cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
Basic White Cardstock - scrap for oval punch
Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon - 6" & 4" 

Please check out my video demonstration at - for tips on using Watercolor Pencils and to see how to create this card.
