SU! Trip Achievers Blog Hop - July 2023

Welcome to the Trip Achievers Blog Hop.  I am so honoured to be participating in this Blog Hop and I am so thankful for the support I received from my Customers and Team Members so that I could achieve this trip (less than 1% of demonstrators world wide earn this trip)!  Thank you so much!  

Today I'm sharing a pretty Thank You Card creating using the Gorgeously Made Stamp Set and Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper.  For some reason, I didn't order the dies with this stamp set - what was I thinking!  I pulled out my Paper Snips and did some fussy cutting for this card. 

The layout was one of my recent Sketch Challenges.  Check out the sketch first.

Now check out my pretty card.  Love that paper and it really is the star of the show!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (Pattern 1)
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 2 1/2" x 2 3/4" (Pattern 2)

  8. Stamp sentiment using Berry Burst on Basic White - about 1/2" from right edge
  9. Cut flag end on right side
  10. Adhere to card base.
  11. Punch circle using 2 3/8" Circle Punch from Berry Burst cardstock
  12. Stamp image on circle using Berry Burst ink
  13. Stamp stem on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using Lemon Lime Twist ink
  14. Stamp stem on Pretty Peacock cardstock using Pretty Peacock ink
  15. Cut both stems out using Dies or Paper Snips
  16. Adhere to circle using Dimensionals
  17. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  18. Adhere embellishments
  19. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
