Badges & Banners Bundle Stampin' Up!, Fruit Stand DSP, Susan Itell - stampinup


I do not know about you…..but, this paper, Fruit Stand is super cute! Not only does it have many of my all time favorite fruits, the artwork of the paper is just beautiful!

I have been looking at this “lemon” paper for some time and trying to come up with a card that I would like and to be honest with you, I was stuck. I was stuck at the colors that the catalog said coordinated with it. You know me, “type A” Susan….following the rules buy the colors that were to coordinate with this paper, was just not cutting it for me!

The “orange colors” that they suggested were Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango ~  neither one were doing a thing for me so I tried Pumpkin Pie (a color that I rarely use) and to me…IT WORKED! So I guess the moral of this color story is use what appeals to YOU!


Fruit Stand DSP


My inspiration for this card came from the BEST tool we have, the Catalog. On page 89 you will see the bundle I used today, Badges & Banners Bundle but you will also see the great example that Stampin’ Up! freely shared with us…so – why not….it is a GREAT card….make it your own!

I am truly hoping that each and everyone of you have a catalog in your “paws” but for some reason you don’t, please email me and I will be sure that you get one!

This is a super sweet and super practical bundle as you can make many FUN and SPECIAL PROJECTS!! I totally plan on using these “badges” for 3-d’s as I know that the “Enjoy your day” will be great for my oldest “PEEP” that is a teacher!

I do admit, I took the bait from the great sample in the catalog and I let my mind wonder! I am one that adores bundles when they involves a bunch…..super easy!

Do you remember we had a Tuesday Chat about adhesives? Well…one adhesive that I did not touch on a bunch was the new Foam Adhesive Strips….and yep – that is what I used today and THEY WERE THE BEST!

WHY???? I adore the way that they bend…a huge WOOT-WOOT as you can get them “just where you want them” I used them around the “bird cage” as well around the entire layered white piece….a classic card!

To me, what a FUN summer card. I just am thrilled with this DSP and actually all of the DSP in this new catalog! I do not know about you….but I am counting down the days to be able to see the upcoming Holiday Catalog….as much as I am “ok” when the calendar going as slow as it can…..we know at the same time – IT SNEAKS UP ON YOU!

Here is your daily “411” of the supplies used! I hope that you find this helpful and I hope that you will save it for the future!



411's of a card, Badges & Banners Bundle Stampin' Up!, Fruit Stand DSP, Susan Itell - stampinup


I know that you like measurements!

The DSP is a 2″ wide strip and then the Daffodil Delight is is 3″ X 3 1/2″….it is super easy to use the punch to POP it out and then just use a scrap to do your stamping.

The Pumpkin Pie is 3 1/8″ X 3 5/8″ to mat the fun! Super fun, super fresh, super duplicate-able with MANY papers! I will say that after I put this all together….I thought that it needed something else. I thought, hmmmmmm –

  • should I use a grunge like stamp for depth on the yellow, then I thought no….
  • then I thought scoring….but it was too late as I already had it mounted
  • Plan C – just take a scrap and make a super thin piece of the pumpkin pie….and yep, I liked it! 🙂
