April 2021 Maui Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our April Maui Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme is "Current Products"!

For today's project I used the Nothings Better Than stamp set with the coordinaing dies from Stampin' Up!  I love this fun color mix of Polished Pink (Brand New In Color), Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green!  I stamped the word cocktails to give it a bit of the flourescent light look and then added the yummy drinks and sentiment.

I also gave the drinks a bit of wink of stella swoosh for added glam.  The sentiment is stamped in Polished Pink (there's that new In Color again) and punched out using the Double Oval Punch.  I love the sentiment on this card, it is one of my sister's favorite sayings.  This card will definitely be headed her way ;)

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog: Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ April Blog Hop


Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For this project I used the brand new Beauty of Friendship Suite that will available in the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up!  The stamp set and dies coordinate so beautifully with the design series paper.  I began with a card base of 11" by 4-1/4" and scored each end at 2-3/4" to give it a gate fold.  I decorated it with ds paper on the inside.  Then the vellum layer was stamped with trees in Cinnamon Cider and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The front layer uses another piece of that Beauty of the Earth design series paper and is layered over merry merlot cardstock die cut from the stitched rectangles.  I punched the sentiment using the Label Me Fancy Punch and then layered that over the Everyday Label Punch.  The finishing touch was adding the Cinnamon Cider ribbon to pull it all together.  This card will be going to my hubby for his birthday as he is a big outdoor guy and loves the fall leaves.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
