Split Trick Card

This was a fun technique we did during our Zoom Team Meeting on Monday.  A very quick and fun way to stamp for two cards at the same time!



Start with a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Measure across the 8 1/2" side and make a little pencil mark at 4 1/4" on the top and the bottom so that you know the halfway part of the paper.  

Begin stamping with the largest stamp - I'm using Beautiful Friendship - and stamp near the center.  It doesn't have to be perfect, just near the center.  I stamped an extra onto a post-it note and trimmed it to be a mask for stamping the other flowers.


When you've finished stamping and you like what you have, cut the paper in half at 4 1/4".  Then trim down each half to be 4" x 5 1/4".


Add them to your base card of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"  Add a sentiment and some pearls colored with Stampin' Blends and you've got two great cards!


Stamps:  Beautiful Friendship
Ink:  Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green

Varied Vases - Going Soon

This set, Varied Vases, was designed by Mary Fish as her $1,000,000 sales achievement.  I'm really sorry to see it going away so soon.  It hasn't been used nearly enough.  Same is true for Vibrant Vases which is also retiring.  The good thing however, is that the punch, Vases Builder, that goes with it is NOT retiring, so you can still punch pretty vases and flowers.

On Friday, I watched Ronda Wade do a live workshop and this is one that she made.  I made two different sizes on the die cut.


Recipe:  
Mango Melody - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Mango Melody - 4" x 5 1/4"
Whisper White - die cut with Stitched So Sweetly rectangles (I used the 2nd and 3rd down from the largest)
Whisper White scraps for stamping the vase - punched with Vases Builder 
Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4" - inside panel

Stamps: Varied Vases
Ink: Mango Melody, Memento Black, Granny Apple Green (stem)
Ribbon: Polka Dot Tulle (NOT RETIRING!) 
Dies: Stitched So Sweetly 


Thank you for looking in today.  I pray that you are all safe and healthy.

Blessings ~

Mixing Old and New

Time is almost up for this beauiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, so I'm trying to get the most out of it that I can.  Yes, I did some fussy cutting, no stamping of flowers here.  The only stamping was the "just because" from an upcoming set called Lovely You.  I was so excited to see a "just because" stamp that I didn't even look at the rest of the set before putting it in my shopping cart!


The cards and envelopes are retiring as well, so grab them quick (if they are still available!)  These are the Gold Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes.

Happy Friday!!  Thank you for looking in today!

Another Good Man

I have to admit, I forgot I had a little sampler of this paper with the golf balls and golf tees.  I just don't know any golfers, so I honestly don't think about using it.  I do like the brightness of the colors though so thought it would be a good time to use it before it retires.


Recipe:
Real Red - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Country Club Designer Series Paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
Night of Navy - 2 5/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White -  2 1/2" x 4"
Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4" (inside panel)
Whisper White scrap for sentiment - punched with Classic Label Punch
