Creating with Sit Stay Relax -- a New Stamp Set from Stampin'Up!

Creating with Garden Grandeur - A New Stampin'Up! stamp set!

Today we're Creating with Garden Grandeur - A New Stampin'Up! Stamp Set! The new Stampin'Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is in your hands - I know you've been devouring those pages & making those Wish Lists. Today we're creating a pretty little card using one of those new sets--Garden Grandeur (#159160) which is a new Host Set. 

Garden grandeur stamp set


You can purchase this set only with Host dollars--but that doesn't mean that you have to host a class or party to get it. There are other ways---you can earn Host dollars by placing an order (minimum $150--that's not hard to do) yourself, OR, you can do a 'book party' to earn them.  You can gather orders from your stamping buddies--we'll send them in together with you as the "host" and you can then spend those dollars to purchase host stamp sets (or anything else you desire). 

With the new catalog there are tons of great new products to choose you CAN earn host rewards dollars very easily.

This floral set has several floral & leaf images that can be interplayed to form unlimited numbers of card designs.

Here's today's creation....

Garden grandeur a bit closer...

Today we're also using one of the new In Colors...Sweet Sorbet...cardstock, Blends, and ribbon.  What a rich "sweet" color & it blends well with Blushing Bride used here in this card. We've accented with the Iridescent Rhinestones which carried over from the January-June mini catalog! Wahooo!!! You know how I love sparkle and embellishments.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (AJVPTCQY) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).
