Ornate Garden One Sheet Wonder Cards

I'm a member of Jessica Taylor's One Sheet Wonder Club (free to those in her downline--YAY) and I wanted to share the cards I made with the April template.  Unfortunately, I can't share the template with you since she sells membership in her club.  But I can share the cards I've made and give you directions on making them.  I decided I wanted to feature the Ornate Garden Suite, which will be in the new upcoming 2020 Annual Catalog.

For the cards that have the diagonal cuts--take a piece of DSP that is 4" x 4" and place two opposite corners on your trimmer and cut on that diagonal.  You will probably want to start the cut in the middle and move out to the corners so you don't catch the corner in the trimmer and smush it.  For the ones that have the sentiment on white in the middle--I took a piece of whisper white and cut it to 4 x 5 1/4" and added the diagonal pieces to the top and the bottom. I added twine or ribbon to the edges (wrap around the edges before you adhere to the card front).

For one of the cards I embossed a piece of Terracotta Tile (5 1/4" x 4") and then added the diagonal piece to that before adding to the card front.  And for one card I stamped the flower with Terracotta Tile ink onto Terracotta Tile cardstock.

For some I punched out leaves using the sprig punch and Old Olive and Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then cut some leaves off to add to the backs of die cut flowers.  For others I added champagne jewels to the flower centers.

Don't forget the insides of the cards!  I always put either whisper white or very vanilla on the insides of cards made with colored cardstock.  It makes the inside sentiment more visible and our sentiments stamp better on that cardstock.  It is also easier for you to write a message.

Here are photos of the individual cards and the insides (some insides are duplicated):





These were fun cards to make and will be going out tomorrow to my customers.  I can't wait until the May template comes out to see what I can do with it!

Last Chance Items

Stampin' Up! has released the retiring list and these items are "while supplies last".  Some are great deals and others are just leaving us.  Some items are actually carrying over to the new catalog but the bundles won't.  Bundles save you 10%!  

You can see all the products available here

Pdf of the annual catalog list.  It comes in tiny (at ~20% so you need to enlarge it to see it properly!)

Pdf of the Mini Catalog Retiring List

There are some confusing things in this list. 

  • The Blends are NOT retiring--they are just doing away with the individual ones  and will be coming only as a combo pack in the new catalog with new ordering numbers.  
  • Yes, our snail adhesive is going away so if you need refills, get them right away!  But we will be getting some new and better adhesive runners in the new catalog!
  • Some items are discounted and some are not.  The stamp sets will be guaranteed available until mid-May but dies, punches, and the like are "while supplies last"
  • The embossing plate for the Big Shot is going away.  This plate replaces one of the clear plates when you are using the new 3D embossing folders.  Our new (yes, you heard it here--we're getting a new embossing/diecutting machine) machine will come with the proper plates.

Oh, by the way--The current 2018-2020 In Colors will be retiring at the end of May.  But since the retiring list comes out on the 22nd, all the items associated with these colors will fly off the shelves.  If you want any of them--inks, ink refills, cardstock, markers, Blends, matching pretty papers, you really need to order them immediately!  Most everything will sell out in a flash!

Timeless Tulips Mother's Day Card

For my March tutorial co-op, I created a Mother's Day card featuring the Timeless Tulips stamp set and punch.

This card features the 2019-2021 In Color and Regals DSP.  I cut out a strip of the Rococo Rose paper at 3/4" x 5 1/2".  The Old Olive piece was 5 1/2" x 3 1/2".

I stamped the tulips in Rococo Rose and punched out the large one and fussy-cut the smaller ones.  The leaves were stamped in Old Olive and punched out with the Tulip Builder punch.  The stems were also stamped in Old Olive and fussy-cut.  Using Wink of Stella (which did not show up in the photo) I colored the tulips.

The sentiment was stamped in Rococo Rose onto a diecut from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
