Botanical Bliss U Fold Card


Addinktive Design team button - December 2017

One of the things I love about Bronwyn’s tutorial’s at Addinktive Designs, is that they are great to use at my classes!!  I wanted to show case the gorgeous Botanical Tags thinlits to my stamp class ladies and Bronwyn’s Botanical Bridge and U-Fold card tutorial is perfect!

I did all the cutting and scoring prior to the class so it wouldn’t take too long.  I had a big class of 14 so I did do the big shot work as well.  That was a fun hour of my life!!

I used the lovely Share What You Love Specialty DSP and co-ordinating cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz.




I like to make about 3 samples when the group is that large so that everyone can see how the card is meant to look.  I think it looks lovely with each paper!  I can’t decide which one is my favourite!

I also used my stamparatus to stamp the sentiments on each piece.  Gee, it is quickly becoming my favourite tool!  It makes life so much easier in a class as everyone gets a great result when stamping.

You can certainly add the stamparatus and the Botanical Bliss bundle to your starter kit when you take advantage of this month’s amazing special to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  You can choose up to $235 worth of stamping products for only $169 and received 10 ink pads from a colour family of your choice worth $117.   That’s $352 worth of product for only $169.  If you would like to take advantage of this offer, click on the image.

CTC182 – Tea Room


Well I’ve had an exciting week visiting China with my sister.  We had a great time visiting the Great Wall, the Beijing Zoo, Shaolin Temple and the Yellow River.

So I’ve unpacked, washed and had a great sleep and am ready to jump into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

I wasn’t going to join in the hop this week as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to have time to create a card.  But my new catalogue order arrived whilst I was away and when I opened up the box, I just had to join in!!  So many exciting new goodies to play with!!

So this week, we are casing the Tea Room section, pages 13-25 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.


I decided to case the card on page 20 using the Botanical Bliss Bundle.  Did you know that you save 10% when you purchase a bundle.


This bundle is just so lovely!  I can’t wait to play more with them.  I pretty much cased the card as is.  I used the gorgeous Share What You Specialty DSP.  For the background, I used the new Soft Sea Foam cardstock and stamped the flower from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.

The roses and flowers come from the Botanical Tags thinlits.  You can use these dies as a tag or there is an additional die that allows you cut the flower out completely.

I used copper embossing powder on the oval and Tranquil Tide for the sentiment.  I used copper foil for the leaves in the background and added a little bit of copper metallic thread.


Next up is my lovely friend, Mel.
