A Kite Delight Happy Birthday Card & Facebook Tutorial

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Kite Delight stamp set. You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

I love this card and the creative way to use the Basic Borders die to create clouds!  To create this look, I used one panel of Thick Basic White – cut 3″ x 5 1/2″ – and positioned the cloud die slightly left of center.  I ran this through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and the end result was two panels with cloud like edges.  So cute!

I used the wonderful Abstract Beauty Designer Series Specialty Paper Pack for my back ground panel – I love all those colors popping up behind the clouds!  I also stamped on the DSP with my words and also for my kite.  The kite was easy to snip out with my Paper Snips.

Don’t miss the Abstract Beauty Paper – it’s a pack full of a wide array of patterns and colors with both large and small gold accents.  The paper in the pack measures 4″ x 6″ – first time we have had a DSP in that size.  The 4″ wide is perfect for card fronts – for my card today I just used my paper trimmer to cut off half an inch from the 6″ length and I had the perfect size for the card front!

I like to switch things up sometimes by stamping on Designer Series Paper – it’s a fun look!

To finish my card, I used the Adhesive Backed Hexagon embellishments to accent the tail of the kite!  Love this card and hope you do as well!  It just makes me happy – the kite, the clouds and the bright cheerful DSP!

Bee Creative Tutorial – Kite Delight & Abstract Beauty

Create this card using the Kite Delight Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Card by Laura Milligan

 

My card today features the whimsical Kite Delight stamp set from our January to June Mini Catalog.  It sure feels like summer – and this stamp set is perfect for a light hearted, fun card!

You have seen me use this layout before – it’s one of my favorites – I love the scallop edge created by the Scallop Contour Dies!

 

Measurements:

  • Thick Basic White:  5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Basic White: 3 ¼” x 5 ¼”, 2 ½ square
  • Daffodil Delight: ½” x 3”
  • Just Jade: 1” x 5 ¼”
  • DSP:  1” x 5 ¼”
  • Black Twine: about 6”

Instructions:

  1. Burnish and fold the card base with a Bone Folder
  2. Use the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to crop the Scallop with the Scallop Contour dies with Just Jade cardstock.
  3. Emboss the 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ panel with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and the Dots Embossing Folder.
  4. Stamp the kite onto the Basic White Square – cut with Paper Snips. Add color with Stampin’ Blends.
  5. Stamp the words onto the panel of Daffodil Delight.
  6. Assemble the card – adhere the plaid DSP onto the right edge of the card front, then adhere the scalloped panel.
  7. Attach the Polka Dot panel with dimensionals.
  8. Tie several knots into the length of Black Baker’s Twine- use a dimensional on the back of the kite to secure the twine.  Add additional dimensionals to pop up kite and attach to card front.
  9. Tie a bow in a small length of Baker’s Twine and attach to kite as shown in photo with a glue dot.
  10. Attach word panel over kite string with dimensionals.

A Speedy Recovery Card and Facebook Live Tutorial

create-a-hand-stamped-speedy recovery-get well-card-Laura Milligan-Stampin' Up!-Demonstrator

I did a Facebook Live yesterday and featured the Speedy Recovery stamp set. You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

The card I made used the sweet new Speedy Recovery Stamp set – it’s so cute – and I love the stamps in this set – they stamp beautifully!

I used a Thick Basic White card base, and then added a strip of Orchid Oasis DSP measuring 2″ x 4″ and attached it to the card base. I stamped the images onto a Basic White panel measuring 2 3/4″ x 4″, using Orchid Oasis ink.  The kleenex box is so cute, right?  It actually stamps as you see it –  no coloring needed – I stamped this and then used my Paper Snips to cut it out, positioning it onto the card front with dimensionals.

Here is the recording of the Facebook Live:  Whether you are watching the replay or the recording via my youtube channel, please leave a comment and subscribe! Your name will be entered for a drawing of the projects I create – winners get a project mailed to them!

Here’s a peek at the inside of the card –  a simple greeting – and I couldn’t resist stamping the spoon – so cute!  To finish the card, I added a white bow and some In Color Matte Decorative Dots.
