Oh, Happy Day for the March IRBH, #AYSI29, Creative Creases, and MMM #196
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! Despite the occasional cold spell or snowfall in some areas, we are well into Spring – and we are ready for the flowers to bloom. We are excited to share our flower-filled creations with you and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Before I do anything else, let me share my card for the Hop:
The rabbit’s shirt on the front has flowers, you can see flowers peeking out on the DSP (designer series paper) on the front, flowers on the second panel, and I stamped some on the last panel. Flowers are everywhere!
The theme for the current Make My Monday challenge, hosted by yours truly, is spring colors. You can see my first card for the challenge here. This card fits as well.
I’ll also be entering this in the As You See It #29 challenge and the Creative Creases Challenge. You can see both banners below:

I could not have made this card as relatively easy as I did without a tremendous amount of help from Mary Deatherage. If you haven’t been to Mary’s Stamps-n-Lingers blog, please visit her site! The woman is a collage and/or fun fold queen and her written and verbal directions are absolutely fabulous! Part of what I love when CASe’ing her cards is that her directions for the measurements are up front. I enjoy getting all my pieces cut first, and then putting everything together. Here’s her blog post for this fun fold. She also included a PDF of directions and, with her permission, I’ve attached it here:
So, there you have it! Basically, I followed her directions but used different DSP patterns. I used a bunny for the front mainly because the bunny has flowers on his shirt.
Since I don’t have the dies yet (!) so I had to fussy cut the additional clouds, the bunny, and the turtle on the inside. I also don’t have the tiny flowers either. Both are supposed to be available on March 20, 2023. I already have my order ready and just have to add the dies and flowers and submit it.
After I had gotten everything put together, I decided I wanted clouds to peek out from the back of the card. Therefore, I used my embossing buddy before stamping the trio of clouds using VersaMark ink. Then, I covered it with white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. So cute!

Stampin’ Up! has a numbe of all-inclusive kits available! If you have ever thought that you just couldn’t create cards, these kits are for you! Each kit comes with everything you will need, except for a stamp block in the stamping kits.
Here are just four of the kits available:
Just click on the image to see a larger picture of the kit!
These kits are fabulous because you don’t even need an acrylic block!
My very favorite kit is now available! If you don’t know what to get for your mother for Mother’s Day, or just a gift for yourself, these card organizer kits are FABULOUS!
I have such a hard time shopping for my mom and my aunt for holidays, birthdays, etc. So, for this past Christmas, I got two of these card organizer kits, and put them together. I also included other cards from card kits and some I had created in bulk to split between the two gifts. All total, they received a completed organizer and more than 25 cards for all different occassions. I was so proud to give each one of them this beautiful combination of cards and the love that went into each part of them.
Take a look at just a few of these other non-stamping kits:
