Nature’s Sweetness by Stampin’ Up

Let’s play with the Nature’s Sweetness Suite Collection! It is featured in the 2024 Spring Mini Catalog by Stampin’ Up. There are two bundles in the collection along with Specialty Designer Paper, trim, and cork embellishments.

Sadly, the Notes of Nature Bundle, trim, and embellishments will be retiring. But, the Lovely & Sweet Bundle and the Specialty Designer Series Paper will be carried over. Yay!

In the video, I mentioned that I forgot to rough up the edges of the Basic White cardstock. Here is a picture of my original card. You can also see what a difference there is in the colored image. My new Old Olive Stampin’ Blend marker is so much darker!

More Nature’s Sweetness Cards

One of the things I love about the collection is that you can create both earthy and elegant cards. I had so much fun playing and creating both types. If you purchase these products, I hope that you also have the best time playing and creating. 🙂

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative.

A Quick and Easy Fun Fold Card

Today’s card is a very quick and easy fun fold card! You can make this card without a lot of supplies or fuss. Even a beginner stamper can easily have success making this fun fold.

Today’s Video

Do you like being able to make two card bases at one time? That is a great time saver when you are trying to mass-produce cards. And there is very little waste with this fold! You could even recycle that small scrap into your card design.

I chose to use A Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper to make our card today. This particular page has several images that can easily be die-cut or punched directly from the paper. The Merriest Trees Bundle has dies for the trees and the Beary Cute Punch will punch out the bears.

More Fun Fold Card Examples

The Joy of Noel is another collection in our upcoming 2023 Holiday Mini Catalog. The catalog won’t officially launch until September 6th.

However, if you would like to be able to order products early, you can simply purchase a Starter Kit and join my team! There is seriously NO PRESSURE in Stampin’ Up. Some other companies do not like it when you join for the Starter Kit or just for the discount. Stampin’ Up throws the doors wide open and says “Welcome to the family!” You pay $99 plus tax and YOU get to pick $125 in products. You do not pay shipping on your Starter Kit. A past Paper Pumpkin Kit and business supplies are also included with your kit. After you purchase your kit, you will immediately get a minimum of 20% discount on your future Stampin’ Up purchases. There are low, quarterly minimums to maintain but you are likely already spending that much on your supplies anyway! 🙂

As you can see, this fun fold card is very versatile. You can take my measurements and use whatever supplies or stamp sets that you already own. After looking at the photos, which card is your favorite? Please let me know in the comment section. Just FYI–When you leave a comment on YouTube, give my video a thumbs up, or share my video it helps push my video out to other crafters!

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today. I appreciate you. As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
