Timeless Tulips Easter Card
For me, after growing up in North Dakota and Minnesota, the tulips poking out of the ground signaled the beginning of spring. (I love tulips, but the hot Arizona weather doesn’t support these beautiful flowers.)
Please note: The current edition of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog retires May 2, 2022. To make room for new products, some current items retire. This includes the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, on sale for $14.40. The Tulip Builder Punch carries over into the new catalog.

This card also uses:
Smoky Slate and Magenta Madness color scheme, with Garden Green accents. (Magenta Madness is a 2020-2022 In Color. It and its coordinating products retire soon.)

Art Gallery Easter Card
My card uses products from Stampin’ Up!’s Art Gallery Suite. Find it beginning on page 32 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It features a 5 1/4″ x 4″ inch piece of the Golden Garden Specialty Acetate. This gold foiling is just gorgeous. You get three different designs of this acetate for $9. I feel this acetate and the design below works well with any of Stampin’ Up!’s colors. The Flirty Flamingo provides a pretty, pastel background that, to me, says Easter and spring.
Other products used include:
Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Sentiment from the A Wish for Everything stamp set
Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pads
To achieve the dimensional look on this card, I first stamped the base flower (stamping off once) with the Old Olive pad. On a scrap piece of Basic White card stock, I stamped the flower shown (stamping off once) with Flirty Flamingo. I then inked the flower accent with Flirty Flamingo (full strength) and stamped on top of the first image. I die cut it with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and carefully snipped off the colored flowers. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the flower heads to the top of the card.

Welcome to the February 2021 Maui Achievers Blog Hop!
We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui incentive trip. We celebrate this achievement by organizing a monthly hop which helps us continue to inspire you creatively.
You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there’s a list at the end of this post to help you move around to all the different blogs and gather many amazing ideas. We have all listed our country – so if you’re looking for a demonstrator, these are top demonstrators in their country and would love to help you with your Stampin’ Up! shopping or if you’d like to join our Stampin’ Up! teams. Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment. We love to hear from you.
As crafters and creators, we all experience those days when we need a little inspiration. Maybe you’ve lost your mojo. Perhaps you’re just feeling blah. How do you get inspired to dust off the ink and make a card?
I often reach for Stampin’ Up!’s catalogs, browsing the many pages of samples created by the company’s talented design artists. The inspiration for this card popped out at me from page 32 of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. The sample of the 3 x 3 card on the top right-hand corner caught my eye. But I really wanted to create a full-size version. I made a few adjustments, substituted like products for some I don’t have, and there it was.
New catalogs and new products arrive Tuesday, January 5. Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog debuts. Sale-A-Bration begins. Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s most exciting sale. It’s your chance to earn free products. Throughout January and February, receive your choice of a stamp set or Designer Series Paper for purchases of $50 and $100 (before tax and shipping).
New Mini Catalog
This brand-new 92-page catalog features a host of new paper crafting products. Look for hearts, Valentines, dragonflies, flowers, Easter, and more.
I have many favorites in this upcoming catalog, including the Flowering Cactus Product Medley. Since moving to Arizona from Nebraska, I have a new-found appreciation for cactus. This medley includes a stamp set, coordinating dies, fun Designer Series Paper, linen thread, and felt flowers.
Look for more samples in the coming week.
