Stampin Up Pop of Pink Layering Love Card - Mary Fish StampinUp

Products designated as “new” will be available June 1 when the Stampin’ Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog begins.


  • My “quilting” technique for today’s blog hop is quite simple in concept but packs a big punch with the new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Pop of Pink Layering Love Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

  • I layered 1″ x 1 1/2″ pieces of the Pop of Pink patterns over Whisper White card stock.  I then cropped it to size (3 3/4″ x 5″).  This allows for a clean edge.

  • It’s takes a sentiment with a lot of personality to counter all those darling patterned rectangles.  The message from the new Layering Love stamp set is perfect!

  • If you are a fan of layering dies like me, you’re going to put the new Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (15 of them) on your wish list.
