Creativity Abounds Design Team Blog Hop – September 2021

This is our amazing Creativity Abounds Design Team! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world and each month we select products to create cards or projects with the goal of inspiring you.

On September 17 and 18th, our Design Team is offering a Stamp Camp featuring the Whimsy & Wonder Suite from the July-December Mini Catalog. The suite includes the Whimsical Tree Bundle, Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series paper, the iridescent snowflake dies, and the Blushing Bride Frayed Ribbon.


Each team member has created a card using the Whimsy & Wonder Suite and will provide pdf as well as video tutorials on how to make the cards. We are also providing 13 bonus projects using materials from the suite.  How do you participate? Just purchase the Whimsy & Wonder suite from one of us and we’ll give you access to the FB group where you can see all the tutorials and bonus projects. Please email me at if you’d like to get the 13 card kits. OR you can purchase the 13 card Tutorials without card kits for $15.

Today I’m sharing my bonus project. I love a warm cup of tea and some special treats. So I decided to make a paper mug using the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series paper. 

I used the opposite side of the designer series paper to make the handle and attached it to the side of the mug using tear and tape.

I collected ten individually wrapped York Peppermint Patties, put them into a clear cello paper, and added a bow made out of the Blushing Bride Frayed Ribbon to give as a hostess gift.  You could add any type of candy, tea bags, hot chocolate packs, or coffee packs inside the mug. Just think of all the possibilities as small gifts for your friends!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog – Sea Ranch Creations! Please check out all the amazing projects from the other members of the Creativity Abounds Design Team. I know you’ll find lots of inspiration from this group.

Happy Stamping!
