NEW AT SU-Stampin' Up! Celebrating Sunflowers

Stampin' Up! Celebrating Sunflowers

Thank You for visiting us at the  NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing products from the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

For my projects, I am featuring the Celebrating Sunflowers Bundle. I love sunflowers so I was very excited to set this gorgeous set in the new catalog.  I absolutely LOVE the die that lets you cut out a big lacy flower.

Spotlight Technique

I decided to try out the spotlight technique. This technique highlights a small portion or certain areas of a stamped image to draw attention to it. This is a good technique to use on a large stamped image or if you don't feel like coloring a large area.

I began by stamping the largest image in the stamp set on a thick whisper white card base. I did not stamp a complete image and I offset several of the images. Then, I colored the image I wanted to highlight with the Stampin' Blends. I die cut a large flower out of copper foil for the overlay and glued it over my colored image.

Fun Fold Card 

For my next card, I decided to do a fun Fold. On this fold, the center is left open and the top and bottom are held together by the large sunflower. 

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Stampin' Blends. Then I add dimension by layering a lacy flower and a cut out of the center and finally a center on a dimensional.

Measurements For this fold 

Card Base: Cinnamon Cider 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, using the scoring blade on your paper trimmer, slide to the left so the score line is at the 1-3/4″and cut. Now, cut the piece that is left over down to 1-3/4″ x  4-1/4″  for the bottom of the card. Use Designer Series Paper on the top and bottom cut at 1 9/16 by 4.

After the card is assembled you may want to add a die-cut piece to the bag of the sunflower so it doesn't show where the alcohol ink bleeds through the paper.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope that my cards will inspire you to take a look at all the fabulous products Stampin' Up!  has to offer and to do something creative today.

Stampin' Up! Celebrating Sunflowers

Celebrating Sunflowers

I love sunflowers. I'm not sure how my mom feels about them, but my Stampin'Up! pre-order arrived a few days before her birthday and I was dying to play with this set. So she got a fancy fold sunflower card this year.

I love the way the way this bundle lets you build up the layers for a big, beautiful sunflower.

You can flip the sunflower back to get to the next layer, and then flip up for the message inside

The flower is amazing

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope I have inspired you to do something creative today. If you live in the USA and need a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I will be happy to help you.

Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Debut

The Stampin' Up Annual catalog debuts today!


I love to get my new catalog! It is so much more fun than getting the retirement list and seeing all the stamps and papers that are retiring.  The 2020-2021 Annual catalog is one of the best since I have been a Stampin' Up! demo.

 I LOVE the new 2020-2022 In colors!! and so many other things in this catty. Here are just a few of my favorites.


My favorite flower is the Sunflower so I was really disappointed when the Painted Harvest set was on the retirement list but then I saw this new set and it went to the top of my must-have list. It was the first set I ordered.

The Designers Series Paper that coordinates with this stamp set is gorgeous!

I love the big beautiful Image of the sunflower and the coordinating dies allow you to cut a big lacy flower to layer on top. 


This is my favorite set of In-Colors from the last 5 years. They are beautiful!

Cinnamon Cider
Just Jade
Misty Moonlight
Magenta Madness

Jar of Flowers

This set looks a little bit like my blog cover and it features 2 of my favorite things. Sunflowers and Mason jars

I love that you can make this a 3D car by using the Mason Jar Shaker Domes.
You can buy little beads to put in the dome, but I forgot to order them so the first card I made is filled with mini-M & M's. The next one I make I plan to fill with some sunflower seeds.


This set was not part of the demonstrator pre-order so I had to wait until today to order it. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Can you see the paw prints? It's a die. The little dog bone gems are adorable.


Of course, coffee

And Cookies

These are just a few of the things in the new catty but they are my favorite favorites. 

What's your new favorite from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! annual catalog. Comment below and let me know because I love hearing from you!

If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
