I just love the hand-painted look to the Beyond the Horizon card bases in the March 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit and New Horizons Designer Series Paper. The talented concept artists at Stampin’ Up! hand-paint the originals of these designs and then the paintings are photographed and the Designer Series Papers are printed from the photos. What an amazing group of artists and we get to use their beautiful works in our paper crafting – just another reason to love working with Stampin’ Up! products!
This is definitely one of the more simple cards I’ve made lately. I started with an old card I kept from a few years back. For today’s design, I wanted the cross to be centre focus and chose the pre-printed card base from the March 2022 Paper Pumpkin with that in mind. I liked how the swirl of colours near the upper part of the cross complimented the dark woodgrain and gold filagree of the cross itself. You may be surprised to know that I actually turned the intended direction of the card upside-down to make this effect work for the design. Don’t be afraid to use your supplies in a different way than originally intended — you never know if you’ll like it unless you try!
On the video today, I mentioned several of the current promotions at Stampin’ Up! Be sure to check my demonstrator website at stampersue.stampinup.net for all the details.

It is a great time to add some exceptional products to your Stampin’ room.
