If you know me well, you know I LOVE flowers – in my garden, in a vase, or on a card! My handstamped card today features the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade stamp set and 2 embossing folders: Petal Pair embossing folder #145656 and the upcoming soon-to-be-released Country Floral embossing folder #149698!! You will be able to select this new Country Floral embossing folder starting on 2-15-19 as your level 1 Sale-a-Bration gift!
The flowers from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set were stamped in Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Grapefruit Grove ink. The leaves are from the Healing Hugs stamp set and stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Up! ink.
For the Petal Pair embossing folder, I used Watercolor paper, sprinkled it with some Brusho Crystal Colour, spritzed with water, and ran it through the Big Shot with the Petal Pair embossing folder. Let dry and you have this great watercolor looking background pattern!!
Coming Soon! Sale-a-Bration Second Release!
The 4″x 5-1/4″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock was embossed with the new Country Floral Embossing Folder! This will be a free gift choice for the Second Release of Sale-a-Bration 2019 starting on Feb. 15, 2019 as a Level 1 gift!! I also embossed the Sweet Pins & Tags tag with it!!
I mounted the embossed piece onto a top fold Poppy Parade base card (use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for best results), and tied it all up with some Calypso Coral satin ribbon.
You will be able to select this new Country Floral embossing folder starting on 2-15-19 as your level 1 Sale-a-Bration gift!
I stamped friend from the Needle & Thread stamp set onto a Whisper White Die Cut tag from my Stitched Labels Framelit dies in Poppy Parade ink.
I really love how full and colorful this card turned out!!! To see more info about layering the Beautiful Promenade flowers, click here.

This beautiful Silver Gable Box was a gift I received at the Stampin’ UP! Onstage event in November! The talented, and very kind, Elisha Smith made it and gave it to me! She embossed the gable box with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, and made the gorgeous tag with the Country Home stamp set.
I was just speechless when Elisha gave it to me.. it’s SO gorgeous! She filled it with “buckeye” (amazing chocolate & peanut butter) candy!
The tag is just stunning. She stamped it with one of the images from the Country Home stamp set with a Memento Black ink pad, and colored it with Stampin’ Blends markers. But.. did you see what tricky thing she did? She stamped the image twice.. once right side up, and then again upside down!! She put the heartfelt gratitude sentiment in the middle where the 2 images meet!!
Yes, you CAN emboss the gable boxes with embossing folders in the Big Shot!!

Stampin’ UP! Memories & More card packs are a really quick and easy way to paper craft your favorite projects. I love these “fold out cards” and using the Memories & More cards makes putting these projects together a snap! Click to see all the Memories & More card packs available online.
Above: I gathered with some fellow Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators a couple of months ago and we worked on these fun fold out cards. We used the Tea Room Memories & More card pack, the Big Plans Memories & More card pack and the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack to create the cards above. If you’d like to make these, you can shop for the products at the links at the bottom of this post in my online Stampin’ UP! store.
Above: this fold out card features the “Big Plans” Memories & More card pack. I used some of the stickers in the kit to create the cute embellishments. I also used Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch cardstock. I die cut one of the Memories & More cards with the Stitched Shape Framelits and layered it onto a die cut Scalloped Square cut from Calypso Coral cardstock for the front of this cute fold out card.

I was adding Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to these Pop of Petal flower images on one of my recent videos (here), so then I decided I needed to use these flowers on a card!! I created this lovely summery, tropical card with the Tropical Chic bundle, Tropical Chic paper and some Frosted Floral paper! Neat combo, right?
I Loved how the Frosted Floral background leaf pattern coordinates with the Tropical Chic paper and bundle and Pop of Petals bundle!

Last weekend I had fun celebrating Christine!! She has been a demonstrator in my Luv 2 Stamp Group for 20 years!!!!!!! How amazing is that!!??
I made up some goodies for her using the Stampin' UP! Tea Room suite of products. I created a card, a copper tin, a pillow box and a tag. I put a coupon for a $200 shopping spree inside the pillow box… Christine is the first one on my team to reach a 20 year milestone with Stampin' UP! and I am so exited to celebrate her!!!! She'll also be recognized at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Orlando this November!! Whohooo!!
The Pillow Box is decorated with paper, stamps and dies from the Tea Room suite, as well as the Copper Vinyl stickers and polkadot tulle ribbon.
The card is a vanilla thick note card decorated with Tea Room designer paper and the Celebrate You thinlits die cut in Copper Foil paper.
I still remember the first time Christine and her friend Kathy came to one of my classes.. probably about 22 years ago. We had fun stamping and she asked about becoming a demonstrator on my team a couple years later. I'm so blessed that she has been an amazing friend and demonstrator for so many years! That is just ONE of the amazing perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator… making life-long friends!!
Although the large number framelit dies are retired (seriously!? WHY are they retired??) I still use them a lot and die cut them with copper foil paper to go with the copper theme of the gifts. You can find all of the other fun products from the Tea Room Suite on pages 14 and 15 in your Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE in my online Stampin' UP! store.
Tea Room 12×12 designer paper & coordinating cardstock, pg 188, here online
I wrapped some Tea Room Specialty Designer paper around the copper tin, added some polka dot tulle ribbon, and a simple tag, and voila!!
