Today I’m sharing a card using a favorite “carry-over” stamp set from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Positive Thoughts. I was so excited when Stampin’ Up! created dies to coordinate with it (Nature’s Thoughts), and both are available in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. They are in my Product List below, and clicking on the pictures takes you to my store for ordering.

Hugs Prayers Love


The card base is Bermuda Bay, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, that I embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. Prior to embossing, I used the largest Ornate Layers Die to give it that pretty edge. Then, I taped a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the white layer, and glued it to the card base.

This is currently my favorite ribbon, and the reason I chose it for my Host Code gift for the month of June. If you order a minimum of $50.00 in June, I will mail you the ribbon in July. You’ll find more details below.


Next, I used a second Ornate Layers Die to cut the center strip from Coastal Cabana Cardstock. Before attaching it with Dimensionals, I stamped “Hugs Prayers Love” from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.


The sprig was created with a Positive Thoughts Stamp, VersaMark, White Embossing Powder, Pool Party Cardstock, the Heat Tool, and a Nature’s Thoughts Die.

The last detail was adding a bow of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, and some Woven Threads Sequins.


Have you played in a Tic Tac Toe challenge? My card would fit in two rows: flowers, die-cut, embossing or girly, die-cut, friendship. It’s fun to design a card to fit the parameters, and you should give it a try!
