Welcome to the Maui Achievers Blog Hop! I feel so blessed to qualify to participate in this hop. A big thank you to everyone that supports me and my Stampin’ Up!® business. I could not have earned the trip without each and every one of you!
We have a fantastic hop to share with you today – full of inspiring ideas using the current Stampin’ Up!® products. Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of other participants in the list below) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by demonstrators who earned the Stampin’ Up!® Maui Elite incentive trip that took place May 2021.
I hope you enjoy my creation!
Before I jump into today’s project, I wanted to share the surprise package each trip achiever received in the mail a couple of weeks before the trip. Stampin’ Up! sent each of us this little goody bag to include our name badges, luggage tags, masks, document wallet and a collectable pin. It’s so exciting to finally be able to go on this grand adventure.
I do hope to be able to share pictures and possibly go LIVE in my CreativeLee Yours Studio Facebook group while we are in Maui. Jump on over and join the Facebook group now. Looking forward to seeing you and your crafty friends.
As I mentioned in a post last week, one of the many awesome aspects of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is we have the opportunity to participate in organized swaps. The Pop & Flip fun fold card I am sharing with you today is the swap I created for the Maui incentive trip. I hope all the recipients of my swap enjoy it. I can’t wait to see what everyone else creates. Did you miss the Vertical Pop & Flip card I shared the other day? You can see the post HERE.
Would you like to participate in a swap? I would love for you to join us at our next team meeting (virtually or face to face) where you also have the opportunity to participate in our next team swap. When you purchase the starter kit and join thru me, you will instantly become a Diemond and earn access to all the benefits!

For my project I wanted to create a tropical sunset for my focal point, so I started by adding color to the background of the Basic White die-cut with blending brushes. Have you tried these yet? OMG…they are fantabulous and blend so easily!
Next I stamped the images in Memento ink and then colored them in with the Black Stampin’ Blends to create the solid images to look like an evening silhouette.
I didn’t want the black area of the card front to be plain so I stamped and embossed additional palm trees with clear embossing powder.
The “aloha” from the In The Tropics Dies was the perfect finishing touch to complete the design.
- 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Gorgeous Grape cardstock
- 5-1/4″ x 8″ (folded in half) Basic Black cardstock
- 4″ x 4″ Basic White cardstock – die cut
- 3″ x 4″ scored at 1″, 2″ & 3″ Basic Black cardstock for pop up
- 2-1/4″ x 3/4″ scored at 1-1/4″ Basic Black cardstock for mechanism
- 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ Basic White cardstock (inside)
