Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a fun sketch challenge today that was pretty fun. You may have come from the talented Tara – or simply popped in here. Whatever the case, I hope you enjoy what you find.
And here’s my Two-Tone Flora Bundle card to go along with the challenge.
The Two-Tone Flora Bundle is just stunning and it coordinates with Fancy Flora DSP. This large die can make a card all on it’s own, but I chose to use it this way this time. It’s layered on a card base of Soft Succulent. The Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP was die cut with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies then wrapped with a length of Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent that I tied at the end with White twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack. I added this panel to the front with dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Something Fancy stamp set, is stamped on a Basic White strip with Evening Evergreen ink. I cut another fancy scallop (LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DIE!) using the Painted Labels Dies, added this to the back of the sentiment strip, then trimmed the ends of the banner. This was also added with dimensionals to the card front. For a bit of bling, I added three green Loose Frosted Dots with dabs of liquid glue.
For the inside of the card I took one of the flowers from Two-Tone Flora stamp set: inked the more solid stamp in Soft Succulent ink, then the more detailed stamp in Evening Evergreen ink. I added leaves from the same stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink – all on a Basic White panel. This was added to the inside of the card. I tend to prefer liquid adhesive for the flexibility of moving it before it sets. But if you are more comfortable using Stampin’ Seal – use that!
For the envelope… more of the Fancy Flora 6×6 DSP for the flap and this wonderful leaf spray stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. This stamp comes from Two-Tone Flora stamp set.

OK, want to buy products to make this card? Here ya go… And remember to use my HOST CODE CXR49K4W when shopping with me. . Here’s how it works… when you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards. If your order exceeds $150, do not use my HOST CODE as SU! has it’s own rewards from which you may choose. You will still receive that FREE ITEM valued up to $10 from me + the Star-Studded Rewards.
Please note… I have had to remove card stock as a free item due to increased cost of mailing – ugh.
For every $50 that you order from my online store (before shipping & taxes) and when you add my current Host Code CXR49K4W you will earn 1 STAR Reward. Orders of $49.99 or below DO NOT earn any rewards. Example $50 = 1 STAR Reward, $100 = 2 STAR Rewards , $150 = 3 STAR Rewards etc. When you have earned 8 STAR Rewards you will get a FREE product order valued up to $40.00, your choice, and mailed directly to you! Is that a deal or what??? You also earn my monthly Online Class Tutorial of exclusive projects when you place an order. For any order $50 or more you will also receive 1 free gift from me valued up to $10. DOUBLE STAR REWARDS MAR 29 – APRIL 5 That means double the pleasure, double the fun.

I’ve put together a list of products that are bundles and will be shown in the new catalog, but not as bundles. My suggestion is… get those bundles you desire now – for a 10% discount, in lieu of paying a higher price when the new catalog comes out. Check out my list below.
2023-2024 Annual Catalog
The new catalog is awesome!! As a demonstrator, we have the privilege or being able to preorder products from the new catalog – not everything, mind you, but several products. AND… I will be ordering the New 2023-2024 Annual Catalogs on April 4th for my customers and will be shipping them out as soon as I get them. If you are a current customer of mine and have placed an order in 2022-2023, you are on my list to receive a copy. If you haven’t placed an order in the past year, I will not be automatically sending you one. If you have not ordered and/or would like to be a customer of mine and would like a copy of the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a catalog.
Price Changes Coming With The 2023-2024 Annual Catalog
Stampin’ Up! let us know that some of the items in the new catalog will have higher prices when the catalog is launched on May 2. The prices for all items that are carrying over will continue to be the current catalog prices through May 1. So now is a great time to stock up on any favorites before the price increases happen in early May! We have not been told any specifics on the amount that the prices will increase but we have been given a list of items that will increase in price with the new catalog.
Due to increased costs to produce these items, beginning May 2 new prices will be in effect within the following product categories:
- Designer Series Paper
- Specialty Paper
- Notecards and Envelopes
- Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads and Refills
- Stampin’ Blends
- Stampin’ Write Markers
- Select Specialty Inks
- Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines and plates
- Embossing Folders
- Take Your Pick products
- Clear Blocks
- Select tools
- Select adhesives
- Select stamp sets
- Paper Pumpkin
Updated pricing will be reflected in the new 2023–2024 Annual Catalog. I’ll be mailing out the catalogs in mid-April to my ordering customers so take a peek when it arrives in your mailbox. The good news is you will have time to order any last-minute items before the new pricing starts May 2. Keep in mind those items that are carrying over: inks, card stocks, notecards & envelopes, etc. and purchase those prior to the price increase.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. May you have a beautiful day.
Make someone happy sending them a handmade card filled with love.
