New Mini Catalog Product Blog Hop- August 2021

 I am enjoying these blog hops;  I learn so much from other demonstrators.  I'm sure my Wish List will grow after seeing everyone's projects using new products from the fall 2021 mini catalog and Sale-a-bration!

For both of my cards, I have highlighted the large single flower from the Harvest dies found in the mini catalog and the Textures & Frames stamp set a Sale-a-bration item. I have also used a card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  It is the 500th sketch they have shared!

You can see other cards made with this sketch here.

My first card is a z-fold card created by scoring an 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" card base along the 8-1/2" side at 4-1/4" and 2-1/8".

My decorative piece behind the cone flower die cut was created by stamping on a piece of water color paper with the Textures & Frames stamp set covering most of the paper.  Then I spritzed this piece with water so that colors bled together.  

This is the piece before I spritzed it.  I like to leave very little 'white space' when doing this technique.


For my second project I was inspired by the colors in our Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  Fall is my favorite time of year--back to school, cooler weather and my birthday, and the deep, rich colors that can be found in nature inspire my stamping.
This is an easel card created by scoring an 11" X 4-1/4" card stock base along the 11" side at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4".  The sentiment inside the card is raised with Stampin' Dimensionals® so that the front of the card can be propped up.

Here are all the demonstrators who are 'hopping' with us!

Happy Stampin'!
Products I used to create my 2 cards:


  1. Both cards are so pretty. I have been trying to figure out how to use the Textures and Frames stamp set so I am glad for the idea.

    1. Thank you. I have more cards that I used Textures & Frames to create. I need to share those!

  2. Love both versions! A nice way to display this lovely stamp set.

  3. Lovely projects! And I love the way you used the Textures and Frames set for the background.

    1. Thank you. I liked that you could still see the stamps after I spritzed, especially on the blue card.

  4. Lovely cards! The colors pop and thank you for the before spritzing picture and the after, it sure changed the look.

    1. Thsnk you,, Nancy, and you are welcome. I'm glad the picture helped.

  5. Both cards are lovely! I haven't done the spritzing technique in ages. I'm going to try it thanks to you!

    1. Thank you! I know--there are so many fun techniques to use with our stamps.

  6. I just LOOOOOVE the idea of spritzing stamped images on the watercolour paper and can't wait to try this! It looks just awesome on your project!! I love the way you've used different techniques AND different colour ways on both your cards - they are just gorgeous and so different. Brilliant way to show off some great techniques!!

  7. Your white diecut is perfect against the backgrounds you created! Pretty cards! Glad you shared one at our 500th celebration at FMS!

  8. The white flower pops so prettily with the colored background! Thanks for helping us celebrate #500 at FMS this week.

  12. Your cards are perfect! They each have a special fold to make them unique and then use a fabulous stampset and die bundle to create cards that can be used for so many occasions. Love them!

    1. Thank you, Janice. They were fun to create. I just couldn't stop at 1. LOL
