It’s Sale-a-Bration time at Stampin’ Up! and everything’s coming up CARROTS!
The New at SU! design team is back to show you some creative ways to use the products you can collect FREE during January-February 2023 (with your qualifying orders). We will show you CARDS & COORDINATING ENVELOPES with Sale-a-Bration products, and I’m showcasing the “Thanks a Bunch” stamp set AND the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper!
First, did you know carrots come in different colors?
Okay, maybe not Balmy Blue, but while we mostly see orange carrots in grocery stores today, that color only emerged in the 1600s. Purple and yellow were originally the most prevalent colors, and heirloom carrots are making a big comeback in gardens!
For this card, I grabbed the complimentary color across the color wheel from orange (= blue) and used the grid pattern from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper to use as my background (and on the flap for my coordinating envelope):
To make space on the front of your envelope for an address, just use a post-it note (cut to 1-1/4″) wide to mask off the center of the envelope and stamp your images over the top, then remove the post-it note:
I couldn’t stop with just one…there are 24 different patterns (48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs) in the mega-pack of the Designer Series Paper, so I wanted to show you a few more:
I just had to add the bunny from the “Playing in the Rain” stamp set on that one! It’s a simple card with stripes of the patterned paper as the background and on the envelope. For the bunny’s rain coat, I stamped on a scrap of Mango Melody card stock and fussy cut it out, then glued it on. You could order the Playing in the Rain BUNDLE or SUITE and choose the Thanks a Bunch stamps as your free Sale-a-Bration reward!
All the supplies are listed at the bottom of this post, and if you don’t currently have a US demonstrator, I’m happy to serve you!

How cute is that! great idea with the carrots on the card and the envelope
Loni, I love the concept of your card, and these carrots really look good stamped! Great idea for the envelopes, too!
Oh, all of your ideas and projects are beautiful Loni, but that first card, with the blue, is just stunning. Such a gorgeous combo with the carrots!
Your projects are so so cute!! I have seen purple carrots in our grocery stores. I love two-step stamps. Thanks for sharing this!💕
