Paper Crafting Blog Hop -- Suites Spotlight

Hello friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring projects from talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share fun projects and various design styles. This month were are spotlighting Stampin' Up! suites. You may have arrived from Sue Boerner’s blog. Her project is fabulous!

I'm highlighting the Ornate Thanks bundle in the Ornate Garden suite. My card was inspired by Jessica Brigden's youtube video tutorial; click here to view.

My project is Thank You cards using different border dies from the Ornate Borders dies from the suite and designer series papers (DSPs) and ribbons found in the Holiday mini. 

Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP with Brushed Brass Metallic cardstock floral border

Brushed Brass Metallic cardstock and 3/8" Embroidered ribbon

Snowflake Splendor DSP with Balmy Blue glimmer paper border

Balmy Blue glimmer paper and 1/4" Snowflake Splendor ribbon

The Ornate Border dies are lovely! Depending on which you select, you can add a floral or lacy look. Combine the border with DSP, stamp a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set and you have a quick and easy card!

I love that you can get two different looks by switching up the papers, ribbon, and dies. Are you a fan of the border dies, too? Please leave me a comment sharing your current favorite dies.

Thank you for hopping around the world with us. Keep hopping to see even more fun projects! Click on the Next Blog image below to hop over to Krissi Hannah's blog to see her fun project.

If you don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I'd love to have you join my Stamping is Fun team! Let's chat, just give me a holler.

  1. Terri, you have showcased these dies very well. I love the Gilded Autumn paper and the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper. Two completely different looks!

  2. I love both of your cards, Terri! I can't wait to CASE these, if I may.

  3. Love this suite - nice to see the use of alternative colors - thank you for sharing.

  6. The Ornate Garden Suite is awesome and your cards are beautiful. TFS

  7. TFS 2 different designs with the same theme. I enjoy any dies that are "open," no chads to remove!

  8. Thanks for the project samples. These dies have been on my wish list - I might have to add them to the next order.
