If you’re looking for a fun and versatile flower stamp set with a coordinating punch, Stampin’ Up!’s Petal Park Bundle meets and exceeds that expectation. Find it beginning on page 30 of the Stampin’ Up! January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I’ve been playing with it for a couple of weeks, and I enjoy pairing it with the coordinating Regency Park 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, as well as additional stamp set sentiments and images.

In this post, I include the finished product of what I’ve been creating in my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. The ideas start to flow when I get to playing. I hope you enjoy these and are inspired.
The card featured at the beginning of this post uses a fun fold. The how-to video at the end of this post gives the measurements and provides step-by-step instructions, showing you how I put this handmade greeting card together. This birthday card also uses a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Go To Greetings, the “sprinkles” from the Beautifully Happy stamp set, and Enamel Dot Essentials Embellishments.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card.
I’ve created so many cards with the Regency Park 6 x 6 paper, I have some small pieces (strips left). They’re perfect for use with the card below. I pulled the sentiment from the Fragrant Flowers stamp set.
The flowers in the set work well with Stampin’ Up!’s Picture This Dies. Aren’t they fun in this card below? The Regency Park 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper includes flower images that can be punched with the coordinating Petal Park Builder Punch. I grabbed the sentiment form the Something Fancy stamp set.

Petal Park Bundle for Spring
For me, spring says flowers. And, when it comes, to flowers, Stampin’ Up! offers an awesome variety of flower-themed stamps, patterned paper, and coordinating dies and punches. I chose to showcase the Petal Park Bundle (Petal Park Stamp Set and Petal Park Builder Punch — buy them together and save 10 percent) and the coordinating Regency Park 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Find these paper crafting products beginning on page 30 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I also designed this card with a different opening. (See the photo below.)
Here are a few details about this card:
Mango Melody base measures 5/12″ x 4 1/4″
Regency Park Designer Series Paper measures 5 1/4″ x 4″
Mango Melody for front measures 9 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ and is scored at 4 3/4″ to make a “mini” card that attaches to card front
Two pieces of Basic White measure 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and one 3/4″ x 4 1/4 for the sentiment
Sentiment from Thanks a Bunch Stamp Set. (Just a note: This set is available free with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping during SaleABration which ends February 28, 2023. Be sure to place an order and choose it as your free item before it’s no longer available.)
“Sprinkles” stamp from Beautifully Happy Stamp Set (free during SaleABration with a $100 order)
Ink includes Memento Black, Shaded Spruce, and Mango Melody.
Added Adhesive-Backed Milky Gems
The Petal Park Stamp sets features the two-step stamping technique. Click here to see a post for another card sample and instructional video using this bundle.
Here’s another fun card sample using this same design. The card below uses two SaleABration products — Thanks a Bunch stamp set and Dandy Designs 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (available free only through February 28, 2023, with minimum purchases).

Hello, and welcome to the Stampers’ Dozen monthly blog hop. This month, we’re sharing handmade paper crafting projects created with bundles from Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. Be sure to visit all of the stamping blogs and be inspired. This spring catalog offers so many great products, and you’ll see some of them featured throughout the hop created by talented stampers.
Today, I use the Petal Park Bundle (Petal Park stamp set and coordinating Petal Park Builder Punch) to create a fun fold thank-you card.
Petal Park Fun Fold
From the front, this card looks like a “regular” card. But it’s really a Z fold. Look below to see how it opens.
Here are a few details and measurements.
Night of Navy base measures 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Regency Park Designer Series Paper measures 5 1/4″ x 4″
Z fold portion measures 9 3/4″ x 4 1/4″. Score at 3 1/4″ and 6 1/2″
Basic White panels measure 4″ x 3″
Extra Regency Park Designer Series Paper measures 4″ x 3″
In addition, I used the thank you sentiment from the Beautifully Happy Stamp Set (earn this set free with a $100 purchase during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration promotion) and Mango Melody colored gems from the Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots.
The Petal Park stamp set features the two-step stamping technique. This means it takes two stamps to create the images. But the photopolymer design (see-through stamps) make it easy to line up the images. Be sure to watch the video below to get step-by-step instructions to see how this card comes together. Use a Stampin’ Pierce Mat to ensure you get a nice stamped image.

This is one of those projects I make each year: a desktop calendar. It’s fun to change the patterned paper and designs and to add a special quote or image.
The DIY desktop calendars with Post It Note pads are easy to create and to personalize. From co-workers to relatives to hostesses and bridge group buddies, these homemade calendars make great gifts and stocking stuffers for everyone.
2023 Desktop Calendar Samples
The calendar featured at the top of this post offers a sneak peek of Designer Series Paper you can earn free during the upcoming SaleABration promotion in January and February of 2023. I paired the Dandy Designs 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper with a sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set (available in Stampiin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog) and the Something Fancy Dies (soon available in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog).
The above calendar uses patterns from the Butterfly Kisses 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog) and a butterfly die cut from the Brilliant Wings Dies (also Annual Catalog).

The Christmas cards are in the mail. The gifts are purchased. Wrapping is underway. (OK, maybe in a perfect world!) The last thing on the list are , handmade gift tags. These can be very simple or have a lot of components. Whatever style or design you need, know that Stampin’ Up! products can help you get the job done.
In today’s post, I share just a few of the handmade holiday tags I created with a variety of Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, dies, and embellishments. With 50 colors in our palette, you’ll be able to match the tags to your gift wrap or holiday gift bag.
Bottom Left: This tag highlights Stampin’ Up!’s Real Red & White Glimmer Paper and the star die cut from the Twinkling Lights Dies. (Save $2.80 on the dies. These retire January 4, 2023). A white, heat embossed sentiment (Peaceful Deer stamp set) with Pearls adds just a little extra.
Bottom Right: The Layering Circles Dies provide the base for this card. I also embossed the circle with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. Red Rhinestones add a little glitz.(Sadly, the snowflake has sold out. But feel free to substitute snowflakes from other sets.)
Be sure to watch the video below to see how I make a couple of these cards and show some other tag samples. Please reach out if you have questions about products or techniques. I’m happy to help!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you’re inspired to create some of the handmade tags to adorn your holiday gifts this year.
