Creativity Abounds Design Team Blog Hop – December 2021


Welcome to our Creativity Abounds December Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from across the world that create two projects a month with the goal of inspiring you to make cards.

Here are my awesome Design Team Members ….

This month our theme is Happy Birthday! 

I just love daisies and I wanted to feature the Daisy Garden Stamp Set this month. To highlight the petals and leaves, I used White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool to heat emboss the images on the stamp set. Then I used the Fresh Freesia and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends to embellish the images. I wish you could feel the card as the white embossing powder lifts the image off the paper. To make this into a gate card, I cut the stamped and colored image in half and attached them to Just Jade cardstock before attaching them to the front of the Fresh Freesia card base.  The image was so dramatic, I decided not to add a sentiment or ribbon but to add a few Brushed Brass Butterflies (a new product coming out in the new Jan-June Mini Catalog). If you’d like a new catalog and you don’t already have another Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, please contact me at so I can mail you a catalog.

I didn’t want to hide any of the image so I put the sentiment on the inside of the card with another Brushed Brass Butterfly.

Thank you for visiting my blog – Sea Ranch Creations today! If you would like to get the measurements to make this card, I’ll be featuring this tutorial in my next newsletter.  Please sign up for my NEWSLETTER and you’ll get announcements and tutorials twice a month.

Please “hop” to my design team members’ links and be inspired by their latest creations.

Happy Stamping!
