Maui Achievers Blog Hop – So Grateful

Hello – it’s Monika Davis from the USA.  I’m joining the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop this month.  This blog hop is for demonstrator all over the world that earned the Maui Incentive trip last year.  There are many amazing stampers in this group so be sure to visit the other blogs in the hop.  The list is down below.  I’m so excited to have earned this incentive trip and go on one of my bucket list trips.  A special thanks to my customers and team members for supporting me throughout the year.  Greg tells me all the time that he can’t believe the places we have been able to see because of Stampin’ Up! – now to achieve the next one……

This month we have an early release from our upcoming Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  It is the Ornate Garden Suite and it is full of beautiful products.  Two stamp set and die bundles, a specialty designer series paper, an embossing folder, a ribbon combo pack and some shiny gilded gems.  Today’s card is one I shared last week on my Facebook live.  You can watch my FB Live from April 13th to see how I made this card a a couple of others – https://www.facebook.com/AtMonikasPlace/videos/576835672927289/

So Grateful Ornate Garden Card

I used the Stamparatus to help with this card.  Use the step feature I was able to stamp the large “So Grateful” all the way down my piece of card stock and keep it all perfectly lined up.  Then I added my small words in between each one.  I trimmed the Whisper White panel very close and then added it to the card front over a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Ornate Garden ToGo Class

Hello my friends!  I hope that you are well.  My family is all good right now.  But as you all know I can’t hold in person classes so I’m trying out ToGo classes.  I may need to come up with a different name but that is what I’m going with right now.  And for April I have a class using the brand new Ornate Garden Suite!  It’s a beautiful suite of products that is an early release from our upcoming Stampin’ Up! catalog.  The new catalog starts in June but these products are available now.  

I’ve designed the cards so that you could easily use another stamp set in your collection but I’ll provide a list of items you will need to complete the cards exactly as I did. See below for the additional supplies you will need to complete the cards exactly as I did.

Class Kit ToGo options

Kits will includes supplies to make the 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs), along with the tutorial and a video.  I’m also planning a surprise bonus project. All the cut card stock, paper, envelopes, ribbon, gems and die cut, embossed and punched pieces will be included. You will need to stamp, color and assemble.

Porch Pickup Class Kit option $15 (if you are local to me)
By Mail Class Kit option $20
Free Class Kit – free kit with orders over $40 (use host code –FAARSWHU )

Hello Little One

In my monthly card class – Quick & Cute Cards – I try to always have an option for a baby card – with both a blue and a pink option.  I guess maybe I need a neutral option too.  Do people still wait for the surprise to find out at the birth if it is a boy or a girl?  My oldest is 27 years old and we waited until he was born so it was a surprise.  But my two younger ones we knew before they were born that they would be boys.  I wonder what young parents are doing these days.  Anyway I thought I’d share with you the card that I currently have in my card class.

I love the Little Elephant stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  It comes as a bundle with the Elephant Builder punch – that’s a 10% savings! For these baby cards I paired the bundle with the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Baker’s Twine.  You could easily switch the Pool Party and the Petal Pink and use the Soft Sea Foam print that comes in the paper pack for a neutral gender card.  Pair that one with the silver and white Baker’s Twine instead of the colored ones that I used on these cards. 

Supply List

  • #148340 Little Elephant Bundle = stamp set + Elephant Builder Punch
  • #146284 Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper
  • #146286 Twinkle Twinkle Card Stock pack
  • #140272 Thick Whisper White Card Stock (I use this for the card base)
  • #100730 Whisper White card stock (I use this for the tag, circle and stamping the elephant
  • #147118 Gray Granite Classic ink
  • #147107 Pool Party Classic ink
  • #147108 Petal Pink Classic ink
  • #146288 Silver & Petal Pink Bakers Twine
  • #147015 Silver & Pool Party Bakers Twine
  • #145372 Stitched Shapes Framelits
  • #143730 Wood Crate Framelits (that’s where the tag is from)
  • #141705 Layering Circles Framelits
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

This set can be used for more than baby cards.  It has a variety of greetings included – for friendship, thanks, and celebrations.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Plaid Deer Treats

Did you know you can make plaid deer?  Use the Buffalo Check background stamp.  And good news – it’s one of the stamp sets that will be carrying over from the Holiday catalog into the new year.  Yay!  Check out these quick little treats…

I folded some card stock – measure the bottom to fit the width of what you are putting inside and add a flap at the top to fold over the front.  I punched two holes and tied the braided linen thread through.  The top flap has been stamped with Buffalo Plaid stamp and so have the deer die cuts.  Aren’t they cute?  Even though it looks like black I actually used Basic Gray for all of the stamping.

Supply List

  • Buffalo Check stamp
  • Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies
  • Christmas Pines stamp set
  • Thick Whisper White Card Stock
  • Real Red card stock
  • Basic Gray ink
  • Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker
  • Metallic Pearls
  • Braided Linen Trim
  • 1/8″ Handheld punch
  • Stampin’ Trimmer
  • Stamparatus
  • Big Shot Die Cut Machine

In case you are wondering what is inside mine – well it’s Walker’s Shortbread Fingers.  They are packaged in a plaid wrapper and coordinated perfectly with this project.  I was able to find some at Tuesday Morning.

Merry Christmas to You!
