Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Country Bouquet for a Friend

Hi Friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! The hop this month features items from the January through April 2023 Mini Catalog. Plus, it's Sale-a-bration (SAB). SAB is the best time of year! Place a $50 order from the Mini and you earn a free item from the SAB flyer. Everyone knows free items stamp and look better 😊

This month, each hop participant, talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, has created an inspiring project featuring products found in the Mini Catalog. You may have arrived from Julia Quinn's blog. What a wonderful project!

The lovely images from the Country Floral Lane designer series paper (DSP) and the coordinating Country Bouquet bundle with its stamp set and punch inspired my card. I love the coordination between the DSP, stamp images and punch!
Country Floral Lane DSP #160375
Country Bouquet Stamp and Punch Bundle #160383

They join forces to make the perfect card to let a friend know how much you value their friendship.

I started with a piece of the Country Floral Lane DSP - the paper is so pretty! I made a few cuts, flipped over two of pieces and rearranged them to create this card. I topped it off with a couple of Framed Florets die cuts and Country Bouquet  punches. Easy-Peasy, Lemon-Squeezy!

I left the inside blank as I wasn't sure I would send this card before Valentine's Day. Do you send Valentine's to your friends? Leave a comment letting me know whether you do or you don't.

Thank you for hopping around the world with us. Keep hopping to see even more inspiring cards featuring items from the Mini catalog. Click on the Next Blog to go to Shirley Merker's blog, and the start of the hop.

    1. Valentines Day is not as big in Australia as in the US. I would only give a card to my husband.

  4. Lovely card, Terri. I especially love all the pinks. Do I send Valentines? Well, I -plan- to send them, but end up falling behind and never get it done. Now I'm on to thinking that I can send out St. Patrick's Day cards. LOL. Maybe I'll get those sent out.

    1. I also plan to send cards but I never seem to get them in the mail on time! Lol
