Stampin' Up! Trip Achiever Blog Hop - February 2022

Today I'm excited to be hopping along with other demonstrators who earned the Stampin' Up!® Incentive Trip last year. I hope you take the time to hop along with us and check out the amazing projects!

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the Symbols of Fortune Suite from the Mini Catalogue.  This was the first suite that I knew I had to have in my stash!  I love the colours and the images!  My card today is a card for a casual to avid crafter.  It is one of a series of cards that I have shared using similar layouts showing you how to go from simple stamping to a more stepped up version.  Here's the link to a previous blog post where I shared the first 2 cards and a link to the YouTube Video with the instructions.

Now for my final card in the series!  The colour combination of Soft Succulent and Calypso Coral is so pretty and I'm really happy with how this card turned out!  What do you think?


  1. Cut Soft Succulent card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Stamp the flower image twice - first one with the stem facing down and the second with the stem facing up.  They can be overlapped slightly as it will be covered.
  4. Adhere to the card base.
  5. Cut Soft Succulent card stock 1 1/4" x 4"
  6. Cut Designer Series Paper 1" x 4" and adhere to Soft Succulent card stock
  7. Adhere to the card base.
  8. Cut gingko leaves from Gold Foil Sheet using Die.
  9. Adhere to card base using Mini Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Soft Succulent card stock using Versamark.
  11. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and heat to melt.
  12. Cut out using Paper Snips.
  13. Adhere to the bottom right of the card base using Dimensionals.
  14. Die a small bow using Ribbon and adhere to the card base using a Glue Dot.
  15. Adhere Polished Dots.
All of the supplies to make this card are available in my Online Store.
