Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - January 2023 Customer Thank You

I'm excited to be training with Bruno and Kylie again this year and participating in our monthly Blog Hop with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the share ideas and to learn from each help us in our Stampin' Up! Business. Our theme for our blog hop each month is "Thank You" and I've created this beautiful card using the new Regency Park Suite from the Stampin' Up! January to April Mini Catalogue.

This suite is quickly becoming one of my favourites especially the Petal Park Bundle with the pretty two step stamped flowers and coordinating punch!  Who doesn't love a punch bundle!

Isn't this a pretty card in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy!  I love both versions with the different patterns of Designer Series Paper.  Which is your favourite?


  1. Cut Night of Navy cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline with Bone Folder to form card base
  2. Cut Balmy Blue cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using Cane Weave Embossing Folder
  3. Adhere to card base.
  4. Cut Designer Series Paper 2" x 5 1/4" and adhere to left side of card base aligned with the edge of Balmy Blue cardstock
  5. Stamp leaves using Garden Green on Basic White cardstock - stamped off for background and full strength for outline
  6. Cut into two pieces and adhere to card base
  7. Stamp flower image twice on Basic White cardstock using Balmy Blue for inside of flower and Night of Navy for outline.
  8. Punch out and adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  9. Stamp sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Night of Navy ink
  10. Cut out using Paper Snips
  11. Adhere to card base using Paper Snips
  12. Tie a bow using Night of Navy ribbon
  13. Adhere to card base
  14. Adhere Milky Dots to flower centres
  15. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  16. Stamp flowers in bottom right corner using Balmy Blue for inside of flower and Night of Navy for outline.
  17. Adhere to the inside of the card.
