Back 2 Basics - Let's Get Hopping

Hearts Come Home Stamps + Coffee Break Papers - Susan Wong

Stamps, inks and paper are all you need to create something meaningful and beautiful. Often, as Stampin' Up! demonstrators, we get lost in aaaall the pretty things. But we started as beginners too and there's something really special about the simplicity of a basic project right? So, Jennifer Frost and the team of Let's Get Hopping enthusiasts are bringing you a Back 2 Basics themed hop this week.

Here are my simple cards made from Krista Frattin's class kits leftovers box! The Coffee Break designer series paper turns Christmassy! What do you reckon?!

And if you follow me on social media you might have seen this baby too. Thought I'd add it in because a little colour and some paper go a long way. If you love colouring, you just have to check out our brand new Stampin' Blends! Stampin' Up! has nailed it with this range of alcohol markers - I love them!

Let's go see how Cathy Caines does Back 2 Basics!


  1. I loved watching you make these gorgeous cards! I'm seriously tempted by those markers and birds now! Love you xx

  2. Ooh! So pretty! I have to admit... I'm not into birds. BUT - I am seriously considering ordering this set so I can CASE your card (actually, I'll be CASEing both of them). :)

  3. I love both of these. Just gorgeous. I'm so glad you were able to hop along with us today

  4. Both gorgeous cards - so glad you didn't throw your leftovers away - makes such a pretty card!

  5. your cards are awesome! I love the colour combo on the bird card. I usually don't stop above the sets with birds but I guess I might next time...

  6. Both cards are beautiful Susan, I have been holding off on the pens, but my arm is definately twisting.
