Monthly Blog Hop – September 2021


Welcome to our September Blog Hop! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world who design cards to inspire others. Each month we select a different stamp set to design Thank You cards for our valuable customers and team members. 

When I saw the Art In Bloom Bundle in the Annual Catalog, I knew this was a bundle I had to have. In addition to a beautiful stamp set with accompanying dies, this bundle also includes an embossing folder.

I’m loving the combination of Polished Pink and Just Jade so those were the colors I featured in my card.  I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock and then used sponge daubers to color the flowers using Polished Pink. Then I used my new Bending Brushes to lightly color the rest of the background using Just Jade ink. I stamped off the brushes each time I used it to get a very soft shade of green. I stamped a “Thank You” sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp set using Polished Pink ink onto an embossed piece of the background.  

I made a modified gate card and attached the two cardstock pieces to the front of each flap. To finish the card, I tied a bow using Polished Pink Ribbon so the person opening the card will feel like they are opening a gift. 

You’re visiting my blog – Sea Ranch Creations. Please take time to visit all the other demonstrators cards in the links below- they are truly inspiring!

Happy Stamping!
