Focus on Sweet Sorbet In Color

This month, the Simple Suite Stampers Creative Team is focusing on the new 2022-2024 In Colors and the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper. These products are in the Stampin’ Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog which launched in May. The creative team consists of twelve Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from across the United States and I am honored to be a member of the group. Each month, we create a project focusing on a particular suite of products. We strive to keep the projects simple so you can complete beautiful projects in a short time frame. 

For my June project,  I chose to focus on the Sweet Sorbet In Color.  The floral background panel and the small floral panel are from the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.  Don’t you love that Stampin’ Up! coordinates the inks, cardstocks & designer series papers? I do! It makes designing projects so much easier!!!

To make it easy for you, a tutorial consisting of the twelve projects has been created.  

Would you like the Simple Suite Stampers February Tutorial with all twelve projects?  Below are the different options on how you can get the tutorial:
  • Place an order via my online store and you’ll receive the tutorial for FREE. 
  • Or if you have considered becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and join with me, you’ll become a member of my Playtime with Paper team.  As a member of my team, you’ll receive each month’s tutorial for FREE.

Hey Sports Fan Tag

To celebrate the official start of baseball season, I created a bag of treats for my son.  He’s an avid Atlanta Braves fan so what better than Cracker Jacks, peanuts and Baby Ruth candy bars to enjoy while watching the ballgames.  And of course, the treat needed a baseball themed tag!  By using the Your Biggest Fan bundle and the Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper, the Hey Sports Fan tag comes together quickly.  Do you see the baseball on the tag?  Be sure to watch the assembly video below for tips on making a baseball.  I also used the Hat Builder Dies to add a small baseball cap to the tag.  (NOTE: The Hat Builder Dies are retiring so if you don’t have the dies, you may want to consider adding them to your die collection.)    While adding the hat is optional, it definitely adds a finishing touch!

Here’s the Hey Sports Fan tag on the treat bag of goodies…

Your Biggest Fan Father’s Day Card

In the March card class, the focus was using the Hey Sports Fan Product Suite. Included in the project suite is the Your Biggest Fan Bundle.  The bundle includes the Your Biggest Fan Stamp Set and coordinating Sports Event Dies.  Even better, the Hat Builder Dies complement the Hey Sports Fan products and add a perfect touch to today’s project. The Father’s Day sentiment can easily be change to fit another occasion. What’s great about this card is that many of the layered elements are die cuts from the Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper.  Since the card front features many elements, the card base is the 4″ x 6″ size from the Memories & Mores Cards & Envelopes pack.  You’ll find a list of project materials and an assembly video below. 

Take note – the Hat Builder Dies are on the retiring list so you may want to consider adding these versatile dies to your “must have” list.  But don’t delay, the coordinating stamp set has already sold out.

Windmill Side Panel Step Card

This week, I am sharing another card from the recent All About Tulips Class.  It’s a Windmill Side Panel Step card.  This is a fun card to make and though it looks complicated, it’s not.  The only stamping is the sentiment.  The remainder of design elements include the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and die cuts!  You’ll find all the components for the windmill in the Windmill Fields Dies. After prepping the materials, the assembly only takes a few minutes so it’s one of those projects where you can plan to make card multiples.  Just cut the extra pieces and have everything ready to assemble at once.  You’ll find the assembly video for the Windmill Side Panel Step Card and the project material dimensions below.

Flowering Tulips Birthday Card

It was time for me to use the Flowering Tulips Bundle so for the recent card class, the theme was All About Tulips.  What a fun bundle!

For this birthday card, the Flowering Tulips Bundle along with the designer paper creates a beautiful, cheerful card.  The Tulips Dies create flowers with dimension for a perfect focal point.  You can find the list of materials and an assembly video below on how to create the card, as well as, assemble the tulips.
