Welcome to the Stampers Dozen monthly blog hop. We are so glad you’re here! This month, we feature cards and projects that use only TWO colors! (That was hard for me!)
Be sure to visit each participating stamper to gain inspiration for your paper crafting. Look for a list of blogs at the end of this post. We like to hear your comments, too!
Gorgeously Made Two-Tone Card
Like I mentioned above, limiting my self to just two colors was challenging. In the end, I chose Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite. I also used the Gorgeously Made stamp set and coordinating Gorgeously Made Dies. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10 percent. Find them on page 103 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog.
Here are some details about the card:
Gray Granite card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

With the transition from Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog to the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog, we see some paper crafting products retiring, some products carrying over into the new catalog, and brand-new goodies introduced.
Some of the retiring products are offered at up to 60 percent off. Click here to browse the store and shop for these discounted items.
In today’s post, I play with a fun fold — the Envelope Fold — with a variety of things: retiring, carry over, and new. My team member, Theresa Huffman, introduced our team (Kim’s Paper Krafters) to the fold during one of our virtual team meetings for our mystery stamping project.
Sun Prints Envelope Fun Fold
The card featured at the top uses the retiring Sun Prints 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. (You need one piece that measures 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches scored on the diagonal.) Be sure to watch the video below for step-by-step instructions for creating the Envelope Fun Fold handmade card. All other items will carry over into the brand-new catalog, including:
Basic White card stock measuring 8 x 51/4, scored at 4
One half of the white embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder
Night of Navy card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Basic White circle die cut with Stylish Shapes Dies
Thank You sentiment from Good Feelings Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy
Night of Navy 3/8″ Bordered Ribbon (18 inches)
Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends
The above photo shows what the card looks like inside.
I created the card above during the mystery stamping. It uses the retiring Petal Park 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set. The Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder carries over into the new catalog.
Now it gets exciting. The card above uses some brand-new products available beginning May 2 in Stampin’ Up!’s 2023-2024 Annual Catalog, including: Fresh as a Daisy 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, Circle Celebrations Bundle, and the new In Colors of Moody Mauve and Wild Wheat.
And, this last card is created with the brand-new Beautiful Balloons Bundle and the Bright & Beautiful 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.

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.

If you love pretty Designer Series Paper, I have a package for you. Stampin’ Up!’s Favored Flowers 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper boasts beautiful, bold, and regal floral designs. I find that breaking it into smaller pieces showcases the paper’s allure.
What’s even better is that with a $50 order (before tax and shipping), you can earn the Favored Flowers DSP free during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration promotion. Sale runs through February 28, 2023, or while supplies last.

Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and SaleABration promotion go live Thursday, January 5. It’s exciting to purchase brand-new paper crafting products. This 90-page catalog offers great new stamp sets, coordinating dies, punches, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and jewels and more.
Catalogs are on the way (or already arrived) for those who have shopped with me recently. Don’t have a current demonstrator? Contact me and I’ll get paper copies of the catalogs in the mail to you.
As a demonstrator, I was able to order early and bought the Silly Goose stamp set. My friend — with the last name of Goos — celebrates her birthday this month. I created a variety of cards to give as a gift. The sayings and images are just so cute!
This week, I’ll share samples of the cards I made for her.
Silly Goose Card Samples
In addition to the Silly Goose stamp set, I used the Day at the Farm 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper for both of these cards. Earn this paper free during SaleABration with a $50 order before tax and shipping. (Just a note: the paper coordinates with the On the Farm Bundle in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.) But I feel these farm and country images pair well with the Silly Goose stamp set, too.
It’s easy to add just a little bit of color to the images with Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Writer Markers. These clean and simple cards make a fun gift.
