Hand-Penned Petals Joy-Fold Thank You Card

Simple fun-folds are a great way to wow someone with a lovely greeting card, and this joy-fold thank you card is sure to make someone smile.

At the Annual Catalogue Launch Party we created two projects using new products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue.  The first project was a floral thank you card, and the second was this fun z-fold card using the cute Party Puffins stamp set...

This is one of the greeting cards that everyone created at the Annual Catalogue Launch Party.  We were playing with the gorgeous Hand-Penned Suite and the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes to create this pretty thank you card...

Last Friday there was a party at my house!  We had a lot of fun welcoming the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue, creating beautiful cards with new products, sharing inspirational ideas, and playing games.


about me

I am a stay-at-home mum with three teenagers and a wonderfully supportive husband.  My creative timeout is stamping, creating and giving handmade greeting cards.  When I was introduced to Stampin' Up!® over ten years ago, I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and loved creating with them.  Soon after, I became an Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator and discovered that I also enjoy sharing my paper crafting knowledge with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.

I would love to hear from you.  Don't hesitate to contact me if you want the latest catalogue, need papercraft supplies (we ship nationwide), wish to attend an upcoming event, or would like information about joining my team.

Who would have thought that peaches would make a fabulous theme for a suite of beautiful products!  The You're a Peach Suite on pages 60-61 of the new annual catalogue is so pretty with the cheeky fruit and pretty blossoms.  I have used these sweet products to create this fun, shaker birthday card...

Alongside the release of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue are five new on-trend colours to add to the Stampin' Up! palette. Here is one of those five... FRESH FREESIA - a soft, orchid pink that looks purple in one light and pink in another.

The new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue adds five fresh, on-trend colours to the Stampin' Up! palette. One of those five colours is... POLISHED PINK - a medium shade of bubblegum pink with a slightly cool, purple tone.

It's always fun when the new annual catalogue comes along and brings with it five fresh, on-trend colours to add to the Stampin' Up! palette.  One of the five new colours from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue is... EVENING EVERGREEN - a rich, dark forest green that is close to black.
