Positive Inkers Blog Hop - February 2023

Hello Stamping Friends! I’m thrilled to join the Positive Inkers Design Team for our February 2023 Blog Hop. 

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome!
Our theme for this month is: Use 2 Products from the Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog!

How do you pick TWO favorites from the Mini Catalog? This one was hard for me, but then I realized that my two products can come from the same suite! The Petal Park Bundle and Sentimental Park Bundle are made to work together. How can you resist a fun floral set along with a very versatile sentiment set? 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my projects below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this po
Color Combo:
I decided to make a fun gate-fold card for a little something different with my card. This fun-fold is really easy and is held closed by a simple belly-band. I love how the larger layers pair up together in the Sentimental Park Bundle to create the sentiment label. The die-cut flowers are such a pretty accent, too. I have been staring at the Petal Pink Soft Polyester Ribbon for a while now wondering how I was going to use it and it just worked with this project 
Card Measurements & Details:
  • Shaded Spruce Card Base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, score at 2-1/8”, then flip and score at 2-1/8” again to create the Gate Fold Card base
  • Mango Melody Cardstock: (2) 1-7/8” x 5-1/4”
  • Regency Park Designer Series Paper: (2) 1-7/8” x 5-1/8”  
  • Shaded Spruce Cardstock: 9-1/2” x 1-1/4”, score once on long side at 2-1/2”, wrap around card and seal in front
  • Shaded Spruce, Basic White, Petal Pink & Textured Shimmer Paper for die-cutting
  • Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots and Petal Pink Soft Polyester Ribbon
  • Mango Melody Cardstock (card interior): 4-1/8” x 5-3/8” 
  • Basic White Cardstock (card interior): 4” x 5” 
  • Regency Park Designer Series Paper: 4” x 1/2” 

Finally, a peek inside the card. I added some more of the DSP along with additional floral accents. This is just a fun card to send to a friend to brighten their day!  

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Please stop by to visit everyone on the hop and leave us a comment to say hello. We’d all love to hear from you and so appreciate you stopping by. If you are following the hop, my sweet friend Jo Blackman in the UK is your next destination.

Sweet Citrus for PP625

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, the always fabulous Joanne is hosting our Sketch Challenge.
I do love a sketch challenge and this one is F-U-N! There is so much possibility, I know I’ll be using this layout again and again. I sure hope you will get crafty and join us over at The Paper Players. We’d love to see what YOU create with awesome Sketch Challenge!  

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.

Color Combo: 
Ok, I’ll admit it, this card is a LOT! Haha! When I saw the sketch I was inspired to use the Sweet Citrus Bundle from the Stamp’ Up!® January - April Mini Catalog. The bundle includes the stamps, embossing folder and a die set that works with both. It’s such a fun set and is already a favorite for me. 

I started by stamping a bunch of fruit images. I went with grapefruit because the pink and yellow color combo just makes me happy. Well, I guess the could be lemons…so let’s compromise and say it’s a combination of both. Once I started placing my images on the card, I realized that this is going to be one of those cards that has a lot going on. I don’t mind though because the combination of colors and images is so bright and cheerful, I don’t think anyone would mind finding this card in their mailbox. 

I really had a hard time figuring out how I wanted to add the sentiment. I tried it on a bunch of different shaped dies and finally decided on a square for a little contrast against all of the round fruit. Truth be told, I don’t love that ribbon detail completely but I wanted a little texture and really couldn’t FIT ribbon anywhere else on the card. Haha! I think it’s a happy card and I hope you think so too. 
Card Measurements & Details: 
  • Flirty Flamingo Card Base: 4-1/4”  x 11", scored at 5-1/2”
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Flowers & More Designer Series Paper (Host Exclusive): 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to stamp fruit / flowers in Mango Melody & Flirty Flamingo inks, stamp leaves in Granny Apple Green ink 
  • Die-cut all images with coordinating dies
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to stamp sentiment in Tahitian Tide ink, then die-cut with square from Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon & Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Basic White Cardstock (card interior): 4” x 5-1/4” 
Finally, here is a peek inside the card! Surprise…I added even MORE fruit! Why NOT, right? Do you remember that movie “Mrs. Doubtfire”? There is a scene in that movie that popped in my head when I made this card where Robin Williams sneakily throws a lime at Pierce Brosnan’s head. Then exclaims: “It was a run by fruiting!” That’s how I’m describing this card. It’s just SO MUCH fruit! :-) I do have a cute thank you card all ready to pop in the mail so I’m pretty happy about that. 

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share your project for our Sketch ChallengeWe’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday February 3rd, 2023
