Starts TONIGHT @ 9 pm (ET)...That's 8 pm (CT), 7 pm (MT), & 6 pm (PT)


I wish I had posted about this earlier! I misunderstood, and thought this was just for demonstrators! Thankfully, it's for USA customers, too!

The party is supposed to last around an hour or so. It should be a lot fun! I'm looking forward to it! The link to join the party is below.

How to Make 3 Different Cards With One Easy Card Sketch - Live Replay


Happy Monday, everyone! Today's post covers the Facebook/YouTube Live I did last Friday, and you can watch it below. I used retiring products on all three cards, but I did even more than that. ALL three cards were made using the same card sketch!

As you can see, it's a super easy card sketch. In the video below, I show how I used the sketch to make three, totally different cards with it.


The first card I made uses the card sketch without any changes. It features the beautiful Accented Blooms Stamp Set, along with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). All three items are retiring, and so far, they're all still available to purchase.

 

I picked the colors out of the Pressed Petals DSP. Aren't they beautiful together?


The above picture shows how I decorated the inside of the card. The border was made with a couple little stamps that are in the Accented Blooms set. Two stamps that I've neglected to use before now. I think they made a pretty border.


Dimensions:
  • Rococo Rose:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Crumb Cake:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Night of Navy:  3-1/2" x 3-1/2" (image layer mat) & 2-1/8" x 5-1/4" (DSP mat)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/4" x 3-1/4" (image layer) 4" x 5-1/4" (inside), & scraps (greeting)
  • Pressed Petals DSP:  2" x 5-1/4"

I rotated the sketch to come up with the second card I made in the video below. The retiring products it features are the Kindness & Compassions Stamp Set (annual catalog), Peaceful Poppies Elements (mini catalog), and Peaceful Poppies DSP (mini catalog). So far, all three items are still available to purchase.


This card is super easy to make, and using the Peaceful Poppies Elements makes it super quick to make, too!


I even added one of the Peaceful Poppies Elements to the inside of the card!


Dimensions:
  • Poppy Parade:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Old Olive:  5-1/4" x 4" (base layer)
  • Whisper White:  5-1/4" x 4" (inside)
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP:  5-1/4" x 2"
  • Peaceful Poppies Elements: 3 flower elements and 2 black, embossed elements

I did a mirror-image of the card sketch on the last card in the video. It features the Honey Bee Bundle (Honey Bee stamp set and Detailed Bees Dies), Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder, Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP, & Crushed Curry 3/8" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. So far, all of these products are still available, too.


I'm REALLY going to miss the Honey Bee Bundle! It's so much to fun to play with. I've made a shaker card with it, and I'll be posting it, along with a video tutorial for it, very soon.


The greetings on the outside and inside of the card are from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set from the January - June 2020 Mini Catalog. I'm happy to say this set will be in the new 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.


Dimensions:
  • Crushed Curry:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Mint Macaron:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Whisper White:  3" x 4-1/4" (rectangle - #5 die), 4-3/4" x 3" (hive & bees), 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
  • Soft Suede:  2-1/2" x 2-1/4" (honeycomb die-cut)
  • Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP:  2" x 5-1/4"
  • Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon:  (2) 4"

The 2020 Retiring Lists Are Here!


I haven't been able to read the list yet, because I wanted to get it to you ASAP! There was a delay, because the text in the list was too small to read. I adjusted it, and it much easier to read.

All Retiring Products are While Supplies Last or Until June 2, 2020...Whichever Comes First!

There is an exception with the stamp sets. They are guaranteed to be available until May 15, 2020. After that, they'll be available while supplies last, too!

Click on the Pictures Below To Print Off the Lists




Order Your Retiring Favorites Today...Before They're Gone FOREVER!

Ornate Thanks Card


I'm finally able to start sharing the videos for the three cards I showed in my last livestream! I'm still struggling with technical problems, but figuring out how to fix them as I go along. I have to say, I'm learning a lot of stuff, and it's kinda fun...that is when I figure it out. LoL


Today's card features all but two of the products in the Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Suite. I used the Ornate Style Bundle, Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack, and Gilded Gems. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how these products coordinate together! They're gorgeous, too. The complete supply list for my card is at the bottom of the post.


I made my own "foil" designer paper by heat embossing stamped images onto the cardstock. You can learn how I did it in the video below.


The Gilded Gems add the perfect amount of bling, and they coordinate great with all of the other gold accents I put on the card.


Isn't that frame beautiful in the gold foil? You won't believe how easy it is to get all of those little pieces out of the die-cut frame. I show how easy it is in the video below.


Do you notice how the DSP piece coordinates perfectly with the heat embossed flowers on the bottom of the card? The ribbon strip adds a perfect transition between the DSP and cardstock, too.


Of course, I had to decorate the inside. I opted not to color in the flowers, because I liked how they looked stamped in Early Espresso. If you love to color, coloring the flowers in would look beautiful, too! 

I love all of the sentiments from the Ornate Thank stamp set. I was able to use two of them on the outside of the card, and a third on the inside! Gotta love that!


Dimensions:
  • Old Olive:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Terracotta Tile:  5-1/4" x 4" (heat embossed layer)
  • Early Espresso:  2-1/2" x 1-1/8" (greeting mat)
  • Whisper White:  2-3/4" x 1-1/2" (greeting layer) & 5-1/4" x 4" (inside)
  • Gold Foil Sheets:  3-3/4" x 2-1/4" (frame)
  • Ornate Garden DSP:  5-1/4" x 1-1/2"
  • Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack:  7" (old olive ribbon)
