Take a Walk in the Park

Stampin up walk in the park
Time to reveal a look at the Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper, available in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini on April 1.  The set includes pretty patterns in Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze and So Saffron.  Here's a quick link to more of my samples from the Occasions Mini

I began with this sketch challenge (FTL32) from Clean and Simple Stamping.  The Textured Baja Breeze butterfly emerged from the Big Shot using Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die.  TIP:  Using a Paper Piercer, I defined the borders of the lovely wings.  Two Pacific Point Corduroy Buttons give it a fabulous figure.

The large Cameo Coral scallop circle was created using the Big Shot and Scallop Circle Bigz Die.  The colorful Walk in the Park Designer Series cicle was cropped to 4" in diameter (exactly the size I "dialed") using a Circle Scissor Plus (see tips on using the Circle Scissor Plus in yesterday's post).

The sentiment from Three Little Words was inked in Pacific Point and stamped on Baja Breeze.  I pierced the edges and adhered it with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals to a Kiwi Kiss mat.  The 4.25 x 5.5 card base in Baja Breeze is topped with a snappy Kiwi Kiss pattern from Walk in the Park.

Check out the addition of four NEW Stampin' Up! video tutorials (including using the Big Shot) on my left side bar.

Three little words


  1. lovely card! I finally got the big shot and had to have the butterfly die! I made a fun wreath out of the SAB papers!

  2. OMG! That is simply breathtaking. I love that blue with the background stamp. Mary, stop, I can’t keep up with you, do you ever sleep? I need to order that paper but I know I have to wait until April 1st. I hope Stampin Up gets those books here before then.

  3. Beautiful – love the big butterfly!!!

  4. Beautiful card! I like seeing the new papers up close. I haven’t ordered the paper pack, but I have selected the bulk buy papers so I’ll only get two designs.

    Great idea to put the corduroy brads in the middle of the butterfly! I am totally loving those…


  5. How sweet to add buttons for the butterfly body. Too cute. Love those papers too!

  6. I love this card! Very whimsical. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh boy…I can see I’m going to have to order that new DSP! I love how a simple sketch like that can look like so much more just by using patterned (or embossed) paper! What a gorgeous creation, Mary! You always impress and inspire!

  8. love it…can’t wait for my paper!! beautiful–makes me so excited for SPRING!!

  9. This is so beautiful! The colors come together so well. I can’t wait to see this designer series paper.

  10. Ohh my! I lovity, love, love this! As always, beautiful job, Mary!

  11. How pretty! I’m expecting my paper and the butterfly die today. I definitely think I’ll use them both together to make my mother’s birthday gift.

  12. You make everything look like a “Walk in the Park”.

    So beautiful, Mary.

  13. Mary, LOVE the butterfly with the button body! Great idea and looks fantastic!

  14. OMG, this is absolutely gorgeous!! I will be casing this baby with alittle tweaking of course to make it my own. I just got my circle scissor cutter and I am having a really hard time figuring out the measurements. I don’t know cm, so I need a tutorial on it! Thank you so much for your daily inspiration. I have passed your blog on to my sideline and downline and they all love it!! Have a blessed day!

    Hi Whitney: I was frustrated with the Circle Scissor, too . . . until I researched and came up with some helpful hints. Now, I’m in love with it and have barely touched on the possibilities.

    It DOES have inches on it . . . but it’s hard to see opposite the cm marks. As I have suggested in this post, take a piece of white card stock and adhere underneath the measurement marks . . . you will see much better.

    Thanks for your kind words on my card. You are always welcome to CASE. I simply asked awhile back for a credit and link if my cards were posted on other blogs or for public exposure.

    Hugs, M
