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.
It features products from the Art Gallery Bundle, including the Art Gallery stamp set, coordinating Floral Gallery Dies, Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate, and the Painted 3D Embossing Folder.

I’m so excited about how this turned out! Inspired, I’m thinking of ways I can mix these products up with different color combinations and shapes.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please contact me if you have questions about this card or other paper crafting questions. Be sure to visit all of the blogs listed below for more inspiration.

Enjoy this Facebook live replay featuring 15 rubber stamp card samples.
Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog debuted in early June. Full of paper crafting products, it holds something for everyone who loves to create with rubber stamps, ink, and paper.
Team Card Swap
To showcase the products, my team, Kim’s Paper Krafters, participated in a recent card swap. What’s a card swap? Each participant commits to designing and making a card using Stampin’ Up! products. We create enough cards so every swapper gets one. We then exchange our creations. This is a great way to get a variety of samples to use for our own inspiration or to share great ideas with customers.
My team members amaze me with their creativity! It’s so fun to see the stamp sets people choose and the way in which they combine a range of elements. I hope you enjoy seeing this live view of our team’s creations. Please contact me if you need additional details about any of the cards you see! (See the details on my swap card here.)
