As a demonstrator, I was able to order many of the components of the Heart & Home Suite. It’s a robust suite that includes two stamp sets, two coordinating die cut sets, the Hive 3D Embossing Folder, Denim Ribbon, Classic Matte Dots, Heart & Home Doilies, memories and more cards and envelopes, and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Blessings of Home Card Sample
The card above uses the Blessings of Home stamp set in conjunction with the Heart & Home Designer 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. The die cuts comes from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Cuts.
I’ve seen a lot of cards on Pinterest and Facebook that feature this “block” design for Designer Series Paper. It allows you to showcase three different designs all on one card. The large piece on the left measures 5 1/16 inch x 1 7/8 inch. The two squares on the right each measure 1 7/8 inch by 2 1/2 inches I can see using this design for all of the packages of awesome DSP Stampin’ Up! offers.
I used the coordinating colors of Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, and Garden Green.
Stayed tuned for Saturday’s blog post where I share a host of other card samples using this same suite!

It’s so fun when Stampin’ Up! releases a teaser from upcoming catalogs. And, the Eden’s Garden Collection is gorgeous. The elements from the collection are available now through January 3, 2022 (or while supplies last for the papers and the gems). The stamp set and dies will be available when the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog goes live January 4, 2022.
Beginning today (November 2, 2021), you can order the entire collection for $82 by clicking here. The collection includes:
Eden’s Garden ($23), a 10-piece cling stamp set with awesome sentiments such as “Sending Hugs,” “Hello There,” and “Let’s Celebrate Everything.”
Eden’s Dies ($35), set includes five versatile and fancy dies.
Ever Eden 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper ($15). The gold hints and highlights really make this paper shine. This is a limited-edition release, so it’s only available while supplies last. You won’t find this in any upcoming catalog. I recommend purchasing at least one package: It’s gorgeous!
Ever Eden Cotton Paper ($8), 10 sheets–five each of two colors: Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. This is a limited edition release; only available while supplies last.
Garden Gems ($7), 140 adhesive-backed gems in Cherry Cobbler and Soft Succulent. Available while supplies last.

I tried a technique that can offer the same look. (Yes, I’m a little late to the party. Lots of other videos and card samples showcase the alcohol ink technique.) But I had to try to for myself. I paired the designs with Stampin’ Up!’s Sunny Sentiments stamp set. So excited to share all the finished cards!
This post features four of the cards I created with the set and technique. It works really well for backgrounds. Be sure to watch the video for a visual look of how I created these beautiful cards.
Here’s a quick recap of Sunny Sentiments meets alcohol ink technique:
Started with Stampin’ Up!’s vellum card stock. I made it larger than I needed so I could die cut it to size.
Scribbled, colored, drew on the vellum with Stampin’ Up!’ Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. Use an color combination your heart desires.
With a paint brush, dribble and touch rubbing alcohol (the 91 percent seems to work the best) onto the ink and watch the magic happen. You could also blow on it or use a straw to move the ink around.
Be sure to play around with the different Stampin’ Blends colors to see all of the fun combinations you can make.
Let the image dry and then stamp.
Enjoy these card samples. Try this technique yourself and see what happens.

Looking for a fun technique? Try stamping on embossing folders! I admit I’m not the first one to try this cool stamping trick, but it’s a wow! It’s especially fun with Stampin’ Up!’s Woodland Embossing Folder. This great folder is being retired from the product line and is on sale for $7.65. As of Tuesday, April 27, 2021, it is still available for purchase. Get it while supplies last or before May 3, whichever comes first.
In fact, be sure to check the Last-Chance Products Sale to see which products are leaving (some are on sale up to 60 percent off). We need to make room for brand-new goodies available May 4 when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live. Shop soon to get the products you want!
I used two other retiring products on this card: the Winter Woods stamp set (trees) and Butterfly Gala (sentiment). In addition, I created the background with Stampin’ Up!’s Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue ink.
Be sure to watch the video below for a look at how the great technique works! You’ll want to purchase this folder just to try this. It also works well with the deer from the current Nature’s Beauty stamp set as well as old trucks from previous sets.

You can also add any sentiment to this card and make it work. I like it for a masculine card and lends itself to a wintry scene for holiday cards, too.
