Welcome to our June NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing our favourite new suites from the 2021/22 Annual Catalogue. I am going to share with you the Simply Elegant Suite, the first one to catch my eye when I first browsed through the new catalogue!

The  main feature of this Suite is the metallics mix in the Specialty Designer Series Paper so my card is featuring that by using MOJO Monday sketch for the layout so I have lots of opportunities for showing off a variety of that paper.

  • On the Basic Gray card base, various panels of the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper are arranged in columns and circles backed with Basic Black cardstock.
  • The label, in Very Vanilla, is punched with the Elegant Tag punch, making it longer by pulling it through the top of the punch to punch the bottom, then inserting the top of the tag in the top of the punch to punch that part of it.
  • The gold foil that backs it was punch with the same punch in the same way, but just longer.
  • The label has the flourish and sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set embossed in Copper Embossing Powder from the Metallics pack.
  • The ribbon at the bottom is the Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon.

  • Using Gold Foil Sheets and Thick Basic White cardstock, these small treat boxes were hand made, using the flourish border stamp and the sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set and 3/8" strips of the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP around the outside, embellished with the Simply Elegant Trim in Gold and Silver.
  • The Flourish Border was embossed on the Gold Foil in Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics pack.
