Sand & Sea Three Ways and Last Day For Last Chance



It is the last day of the Last Chance Sale for the 2021 January - June Mini Catalog.  I wanted to showcase a retiring item, the Sand and Sea Designer Series Paper. You will still be able to get the Sand & Sea Suite items individually including the Friends Are Like Seashells stamps, Seaside Seashells dies Opal Rounds and Seashells 3D embossing folder but the Seaside Shells stickers and coordinating Sand + Sea designer series paper will be retiring. 

I made this first card for a sketch challenge for my upline's monthly Stampin' Up! team meeting. We had a blast showing off our card creations using the same sketch and previewing the upcoming 2021 July- December Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog!  

I love how the banner shapes on this card show off the different patterns of designer series paper. 


This second card is my take on a card designed by Ange McKay.  I really love how her layout shows off the Designer Series Paper and how the embossed shells really pop.  



This third card is my take on a card designed by Ronda Wade.  Another great way to show off the different patterns of designer series paper.

Vine Design Three Ways


Only two more days until the 2021 January - June Mini Catalog retires.  Today I wanted to show you a few items I really like from the mini catty that I think are worth picking up before they are gone (they are listed in bold).

I wanted to showcase 3 different ways to use the Vine Design bundle.  This set has pretty floral and vine imagery along with sentiment stamps and and the coordinating dies are really beautiful.  There are dies that cut out the floral images along with a label die and some intricate floral shapes.

On my first card I used the Soft Pastels to stamp the vine stamp using Versamark Ink then applied some green pastel with a sponge dauber in the upper left and lower right hand corner.

I stamped the vine in the opposite corners using Soft Succulent ink then colored over some leaves with a Soft Succulent Stampin' Write marker  and then used mini dimensionals to add the die cut flowers on top.

4 1/4" x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2″


Rich Razzleberry Cardstock-

4" x 5 1/4"


Basic White Cardstock-

For my second card I used the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foil and added some Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon.  I stamped my sentiment and some floral images on Basic White and cut them out with snips. 

MEASUREMENTS:

Basic White Thick Cardstock – 

4 1/4" x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2″

Love You Always Specialty Paper-

2 3/4″ x 2 3/4"

1 1/4″ x 2 1/2”



For my final card I used the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foil again and stamped my sentiment and floral images on whisper white then die cut them out using the matching dies.  I layered a die cut vellum floral layer behind the sentiment and mat the layers on Crumb Cake Cardstock.

MEASUREMENTS:
