Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

Welcome to this month’s Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop.

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in and I’m really honoured to be part of the Design Team! Love how Stampin’ Up! has brought us together!

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper (DSP)  in our projects but this month we are shaking things up a little. Our current catalogue finishes very soon ((June 2nd) and a new one starts on June 3rd.  As we say goodbye to our current DSPs and hello to new ones, this month we can use ANY Designer Series Paper.

Covid-19 Product Giveback

Stampin’ Up! is also currently running a “Product Giveback” Promotion – The Share Sunshine Covid-19 pdf – and some of us are featuring that in our projects too!

Anyone in the world can purchase for $US12 – ALL of that goes to charities – see below.

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts through these organizations:

  • The World Health Organization’s COVID-Solidarity Response Fund
  • United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund

Help us make a difference today!

I have two projects to share with you today – each featuring a different DSP – and one featuring a sentiment from the Share Sunshine pdf.
