REGENCY PARK SUITE
March 27, 2023
The Petal Park Stamp Set and Petal Park Punch are part of the Regency Park Suite Collection starting on page 30 in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog. It is an extensive suite with two bundles, an embossing folder, ribbon, embellishments and paper! I particularly like the Textured 12" x 12" Shimmer Paper in three colors! This stamp set has leaves and flowers and coordinates with the Petal Park Punch which will cut out the three main flowers.

Petal Park Thinking of You Card
For this card, I used a Balmy Blue card base, and attached a 1" strip of Country Gingham DSP to the right edge. I cut a white panel and used a die from the Basic Borders set to cut a decorative edge along the right side.
The leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron. The outline stamp is full strength, and the solid stamp was stamped off once on scrap paper for a lighter hue. I did the same with the flowers in Balmy Blue on a Basic White scrap and punched them with the Petal Park Punch. I stamped the greeting from Go To Greetings in Balmy Blue.
The white panel is adhered to the front of the card over the DSP strip and the flowers are attached with Dimensionals. Finally, the card is embellished with Pastel Pearls.
Go To Greetings
Go To Greetings is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Annual Catalog, you can find it on page 26. It has FOUR different greetings in THREE sizes, plus a small Hello. It definitely is my Go-To sentiment set when I’m cardmaking, as there’s a greeting for almost everything ~ in a variety of sizes!!! You'll love it!
The DSP makes it easy peasy!

Seaside Bay Class 2
March 06, 2023
This is the second card from Saturday afternoon's Seaside Bay class. We used the 6" x 6" (fabulous) designer series paper on page 23 in the Mini Catalog. The paper is 4" x 5 1/4". This is an easy card and an easy 'card sketch' that can be used over and over. Cyndi ordered the BY THE BAY SUITE COLLECTION at our class on Saturday and, it was then that I found out, the dies are not available (out of stock) until the week of March 27!!! So, I ordered everything else for her and will put a note on my calendar to order those dies! Sorry Cyndi!

Favored Flowers DSP (Sale-A-Bration)!

Beautiful Thistle Bundle
The Beautiful Thistle bundle in the January – April Mini Catalog (page 60) features a great selection of stamps and dies that enable you to create a varied selection of thistles. There are dies to cut out the stamped images and detailed dies to build up thistles from the different pieces.
The stamped images are beautiful line drawings that enable you to color them in a variety of different ways. So whether water coloring, markers or even pastels are your favorite coloring medium of the moment, you will love these stamps.
Card Sketch for Beautiful Thistle Card
The project that I am showing today has been created from a card sketch. Sketches are always a great starting point for your creativity. You don’t have to stick rigidly to the layout, you can always change the shapes and orientations on a sketch if that works better for you.
Favored Flowers DSP with Beautiful Thistle Bundle
This card needed some Designer Series Paper. This Favored Flowers pack is one of the Level 1 Sale-a-Bration choices until the end of February. As well as the beautiful floral designs, there are also some generic colored prints in this pack, including Blackberry Bliss and Fresh Freesia patterns which are perfect for this project.
Beautiful Thistle - Front
This card features a Fresh Freesia card base with a Blackberry Bliss DSP mat on top. The larger square is a piece of Fresh Freesia Designer Series paper. The large Thistle has been stamped onto a square of basic white. It has been colored with Old Olive and Fresh Freesia Blends. A Blackberry Bliss Blend has been used to add some highlights to the thistle at the bottom of the petals and at the base of the thistle where it meets the leaves.
The texture image stamp has been stamped around the edge of the basic white in Fresh Freesia ink. A bow of white twine is stuck to the thistle with a glue dot.
The sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink. 'Thinking of You' is such a useful sentiment, whether someone is having a rough time, or you want to send a “just because” card. Stamp the thistle inside the card and on the envelope to complete your presentation. Enjoy!
