This past weekend was Stampin' Up!'s big convention. Usually we would gather in person, but since this is 2020 we went virtual. Over 10,000 demonstrators all around the world participated!
We had the opportunity to Stamp & Share together during this event, and here is one of the cards I made:
It features stamps, Designer Series Paper, and embellishments from the forthcoming Dandy Garden Suite. I love how fun and fresh it feels! I am not a fan of many insects, but dragonflies and ladybugs are 2 of my exceptions.
One of the things I noticed about the cards we made during this session was the move away from large layers of DSP to multiple small pieces...I'm liking this, too!
If one didn't want to pre-purchase the bundle of products to make this exact card we were encouraged to use product from our own stash to make our own versions. These are some examples they shared using other suites:
Have these given you ideas to make your own versions? Here are the measurements to get you started!
While you'll need to wait a bit to be able to order the Dandy Garden Suite (December for SU! Demonstrators, January for customers) you can go ahead and add the alternatives to your collection! Click on a picture below to go to my online store.

I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
