Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are starting with me, thank you. I hope you will stop by everyone’s blog to see what they have created this week. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s sketch.

Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Bundle along with the Naturally Gilded Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today. These products will be available as an Online Exclusive to customers starting March 1, 2023.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

Stampin' Up! Irresistible Blooms 2

I started by adding color to a Naturally Gilded DSP card front using my Blending Brush and So Saffron Ink. I adhered the panel Naturally Gilded DSP to a Brushed Metallic Paper mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal +.

On a panel of Petal Pink cardstock I stamped the larger flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Irresistible Blooms Cling Stamp Set twice in Petal Pink Ink. On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock, I stamped the larger flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the 3 flowers out using the Irresistible Blooms Dies. I cut the leaves from a panel of Hello Irresistible 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using the Irresistible Blooms Dies. I cut the detailed leaves from a panel of Brushed Metallic Paper using the Irresistible Blooms Dies. I arranged the flowers and leaves on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Seal and Glue Dots.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Copper Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Meadow Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Loose Frosted Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on a Basic White panel. On the bottom of the panel, I stamped the flower image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the small leaf image around the flower in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Calypso Coral and Petal Pink Inks on the envelope front. I stamped the small leaf image from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the flowers. I adhered a panel of Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 


Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.


Stampin’ Up! has some new items to pick from at the $50 level and $100 level during Sale-a-bration!  They are all items from the current catalog and they’re all available in addition to the Sale-a-bration exclusives from the Sale-a-bration 2023 Brochure!

Click Here for a printable PDF or the New Items that have been added. Head over to my Online Store to shop and pick up some of those new Sale-a-bration items that have been added.

Please note that you must use the item numbers included on the linked flyer in order to redeem these items as Sale-A-Bration items.


Coming on March 1, 2023, Stampin’ Up! is going to be having Online Exclusive Products and the first will be available starting March 1st. Click Here for a printable PDF flyer with the items that will be available. If you like what you see, there is a way you can get them NOW. If you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of February, you can either add the items to your starter kit, or you can pre-order them once you join. This is just one of the perks of being a demonstrator.
