International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - May 2023

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top 10 in the May 2023 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Pop Up Pocket Card.

Today I'm sharing a card I created using one of my favourite bundles in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue - Timeless Arrangements and a new colour combination for me - Pecan Pie and Pretty Peacock.  I love the texture and colours of this card.


  1. Cut Pretty Peacock cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Pecan Pie cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base
  3. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Stamp circles and flowers randomly on card base using Pecan Pie ink
  5. Emboss using the flower embossing folder from the 3D Basics Embossing Folder set.
  6. Adhere to cardbase.
  7. Cut 2 sprigs from Pretty Peacock cardstock and 2 sprigs from Pecan Pie cardstock using dies
  8. Cut Pretty Peacock cardstock 1" x 4"
  9. Adhere sprigs behind Pretty Peacock cardstock
  10. Adhere Pretty Peacock cardstock to card base
  11. Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock using Pecan Pie and Pretty Peacock ink.
  12. Cut the words out and adhere to Pretty Peacock cardstock on card base using Dimensionals
  13. Adhere Rustic Metallic Dots
  14. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  15. Stamp little flowers using Pecan Pie ink in bottom right corner
