Happy New Years Eve! Are you doing anything special? We’ll be low key with my Sister & Brother in Law… lots of football & food.
Today’s post features the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Sale-a-bration catalog which begins on 1/5/23. Demonstrators get to order early & we’re happy to post some preview pictures. Another reason to be a demonstrator is early order & catalog view (More later about Sale-a-bration & benefits of being a demonstrator [it’s ok not to sell or hold parties]).
With that, I have a super simple card for you today. I need to make 3 sets of 12 cards over the next week. So I need super easy but I want pretty and simple (& not plain). I’ve got some family ‘irons in the fire’ that are going to keep me very busy for the next 3 weeks; its all good things but I need to keep it simple right now.
Stampin’ Up is so versatile that it lets us do both “Clean & Simple” otherwise known as CAS & an artisan or stepped-up creation, showing lots of embellishments or techniques. Or anything in-between. Whatever way you choose, you have wonderful cards.
My card today uses the free sale-a-bration DSP pack called Dainty Flowers. I picked the paper with six (6) oval floral wreathes. I cut them down to 3.5 x 4.75. It’s little tricky- I cut to 4″ wide & then cut 1/4 ” off each side. I also centered the wreath vertically. The vertical panel wasn’t quite as precise as the width, but I tried to keep the top & bottom border equivalent. I’m a math/numbers/grid girl so this was logical to me. One hint I can say: Use our grid paper to help with alignment.
In Old Olive ink, the sentiment “May the Good you do come back to you” was stamped in the center of the wreath. The sentiment is from the Something Fancy stamp set . I just love that phrase! So many people deserve this card. The sentiments in this set are worth purchasing alone but you’ll want the dies too, right?! Next, a Old Olive bow was added; the ribbon is from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon combo from the Annual Catalog (AC).
The DSP panel was mounted on Old Olive and then, with dimensionals, it was placed on a Blushing Bride card base. I left the inside blank so I could write a personal message.
It’s really simple and I hope you think it is pretty too! I hope my card swap group likes it!
You can get this paper by placing a $50 product order (before s/h & tax). Also demonstrator sign-up specials will begin soon…stay tuned for more info. Bottom line, it is a no lose situation…free product with no obligation.
Happy New Year! Have Fun & Stay safe! Marilyn (aka MJ)
