Sun Prints - Kre8tors Blog Hop/April 2022 - Free For All

 Here is a sneak peak of a few cards made with the new Sun Prints Suite for our Kre8tors Blog Hop this month since the theme is Free For All and anything goes!

I chose this suite to show off for the Blog Hop because this new paper is just beautiful and deserves a feature!!  I will be showing off some of my favorite items from the new catalog over the next two weeks.

 Be sure to check out all of the Kre8tors this month to see what they have made to show off for you. Since the theme is Free for All you get to see all sorts of new ideas as we all share our cards for you.  All of the participating blogger's links are at the end of my post.


This is one of those times that you can let the Designer Series Paper do all the hard work!

I just used a Basic White Mat run through the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder just to bring a little texture in and a Night of Navy cardstock card base.  

The next layer is one of the gorgeous pieces DSP from the new 12 X12" Sun Prints DSP - this will be available in the new Annual Catalog on May 3rd. 

The Hello sentiment is included in the suite - in the Nature's Prints Stamp Set.

The Basic White cardstock oval is a die from another new die set - All That - this will be available May 3rd as well. The, what I call, messy oval in Night of Navy- I cut down by running it through the Stampin' Cut  & Emboss Machine twice to get it down to the size I wanted is from the Beautiful Shapes dies.

Behind the sentiment layers is a piece of White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon with each of the ends frayed a bit.I added a few Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels to finish my card off.


My second card also stars that beautiful Sun Prints DSP.

This time I embossed a fern leaf on a Night of Navy Cardstock .

Using the Fern stamp from the Nature's Prints Stamp Set that comes in the Sun Prints Suite, I stamped it with VersaMark Ink, used White Embossing Powder, and my Heat Tool to set the embossing powder.

The sentiment Best Wishes also comes with the new Nature's Prints Stamp set.  The fun shape of the white cardstock is a new die from the Natural Prints Dies - this is also part of the Suite.

So the suite includes The Nature's Prints Bundle - (Which is the Nature's Prints Stamp Set and the Natural Prints Dies.)  and The Fern 3D Embossing Folder. - which I did not use in this post - but I am sure you will see it here soon!! It is a pretty one!

As I just said - you will probably see more things done with this Nature's Prints Bundle that may not use the blue Sun Prints DSP because this set is pretty versatile and can be used in many different ways.

I hope you enjoyed my Sun Prints Cards - now it is on to see what everyone else has done!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
