Thanks - Hand-Penned Petals - International Blog Highlights Winners Hop - May 2021

I am so excited to be part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights Top Ten Winners hop this month. Thank you to all of the people who voted for me! I truly appreciate your vote! This is the first time I have been part of this blog hop so that makes it extra special and exciting! 

I also want to thank Kylie Bertucci for giving me the opportunity to be part of this hop and the International Blog Highlights program.

The theme for today's card is "Thanks". I used one of my most used sets since the new Annual Stampin' Up!® 2021-2022 Catalogue was released. I just love the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and coordinating Penned Flowers Dies.


Use a piece of Very Vanilla for the card base. Use a smaller piece of Fresh Freesia card and adhere to the Vanilla base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Use another piece of Very Vanilla and emboss with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Attach this card to the card base using Liquid Glue.

Die cut multiple floral and leaf images using the Penned Flowers Dies from Very Vanilla, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia and Polished Pink. Lay them into a design that you like and then adhere slowly using Liquid Glue. (TIP: take a photo of your layout prior to gluing it down to make sure you can replicate it)

Stamp the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla card using Fresh Freesia ink. Mat this piece onto a piece of Fresh Freesia card (using Liquid Glue). Attach the sentiment onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Add some of the Fresh Freesia coloured 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels to the card.


- Very Vanilla base A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded

Fresh Freesia layer: A4 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"/ 14.2 x 9.8 cm or Letter 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

- Very Vanilla layer: A4 5 3/8" x 3 5/8"/ 13.9 x 9.5 cm or Letter 3 3/4" x 5"
