March Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the March Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue Boerner's blog. Great project, Sue! Welcome one and all.

The theme for this month's blog hop is "happy birthday." Now I have been posting birthday cards the last couple of weeks here so today I am sharing this super cute card using the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in a slightly familiar card design. Stick around for the details.

The card base is a top fold, landscape A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Calypso Coral cardstock. The tulips on the top half of the card are stamped on a Basic White cardstock strip, cut 2" x 5 1/4" using Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz ink. To create the brick wall, I ran this strip through "The Boss" (what I have been affectionately calling the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!!) using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is stamped on a 1/2" strip of Basic White cardstock with a slim piece of Calypso Coral cardstock along the bottom edge. I hand cut the flagged end and wrapped the other end with Linen Thread.

The bottom panel is a pretty pattern strip from the Playing with Patterns 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut 2" x 5 1/4". Since I plan to use this card for this month's online workshop - and some crafters have not yet had an opportunity to purchase the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch - the 3 tulip clusters were stamped on scrap Basic White cardstock and trimmed to fit, approximately 1 1/4" x 1 3/4".

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Terri Stewart.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

(NOTE: I have been ultra-conservative in my projects during these extraordinary times as so many of my customers do not have a die cutting machine so I always offer an alternative idea for any die used in my projects. Although no dies were used in this project, I did use the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder which is not required for this project.)

I want to keep everyone motivated and crafting so this month I am giving away a Timeless Tulips stamp set. As I have offered for the last several months, for all orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code, I will send you the card kits for the March workshop (this month to be held on March 27 via Facebook Live on my business page). In addition, I will be picking 1 winner from those orders of $25 or more using the February or March host code (see March host code below or on the sidebar) for your own Timeless Tulips stamp set. (NOTE: March orders placed after March 27 workshop, will receive April's workshop card kits - unless you let me know you really want the current month's card kits.)

If you have placed an order from me over the past year, you should have received a copy of the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog (formerly called the Spring Mini Catalog) in the mail. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own.

(March 2, 2021 - May 3, 2021)
The early release of this beautiful butterfly collection that will be in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog is available to customers now. Both the DSP and the specialty paper will only be available while supplies last. (Do I need to say it? Time is of the essence!)

As always, if you have any questions, or need any assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
