Paper Crafting Blog Hop April

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! I am excited to be joining this blog hop with amazing and talented demonstrators again this month!   You may have arrived from Sue McDonald’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

This month’s theme is Thinking of you. I chose to pair the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper along with other items in the Ornate Garden Suite for this month’s project. This fun card comes with its own gift – a beautiful bookmark! Now with staying home more than ever I think these bookmarks will be put to good use. I love sitting down with a good book – “real” pages and all! 


The measurements and paper/cardstock used are as follows:

  1. 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Old Olive (card base)
  2. 5-1/2″ x 2″ Terra Cotta Tile
  3. 5-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ Daffodil Delight
  4. 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ and 5-1/4″ x 4″ Ornate Garden Specialty DSP
  5. scraps of Terra Cotta Tile, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White

Other products used:

  1. Stamp Set: Colorful Seasons
  2. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
  3. Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack
  4. Stitched Shapes and Birthday Dies
  5. Scalloped Tag Punch
  6. Stampin’ Dimensionals
  7. Paper Trimmer
