Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Florals

Time for another Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Florals.  My card today is one I created for my Sketch Challenge and it features the colours of the Ukraine flag and a sunflower which is the flower of the Ukraine.  It's my way of showing my support for the people of the Ukraine.

Isn't this a pretty card?

Here's the sketch it was based on.


  1. Cut Pacific Point card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on the score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Bumblebee card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Basic White card stock 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  4. Use a mask to apply some Bumblebee Ink

  6. Cut scalloped circle from Pacific Point card stock using 2 9/16" die.
  7. Cut circle from Bumblebee card stock 2 3/8" die
  8. Adhere circles together using Dimensionals
  9. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp sunflower on Basic White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  11. Colour using Blends - Mango Melody and Mossy Meadow.
  12. Adhere to circles using Dimensionals.
  13. Cut 3" of ribbon and fold.  Adhere behind sunflower.

Tutorial Bundle for the Ukraine

In response to the ongoing crisis, the Creativity Abounds Team has decided to create a Ukraine Fundraising Card Making Tutorial Bundle. 

Who Are we?
The Creativity Abounds Design Team is a group of 13 Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. We come together every month to create a Tutorial Bundle, hold a blog hop and also host regular online Stamp Camps.

All 13 members of the Creativity Abounds Design Team quickly expressed their interest in helping to bring together this special, additional Tutorial Bundle. As this newsletter is sent, work is underway around the world to get cards designed and tutorials written and compiled.

We didn’t want to wait to start raising money though, because this is timely and help is needed now. Therefore the bundle is up for sale now. You can start to order and pay for yours and the tutorial will follow as quickly as we can bring it together. We envision it will be with you by the week beginning 21st March!

The theme for the projects is blue/yellow. I am excited to see what ideas everyone comes up with. I know they are all going to inspire you in your card making – and of course you will be able to change the colour of the projects to suit other occasions.

All the proceeds from the sale of these tutorials will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross as a contribution from the crafting community to the work they are carrying out with the people of Ukraine.

Stampin’ Up’s Statement of the Heart reads:
To LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love.
As we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments.
In this we MAKE A Difference.
The Creativity Abounds Design Team hope that in sharing what we love with you, together we might make a small difference.
How Can I Help?
