Tutorial – Wonderful World Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek!

Wonderful World Card Duo by Laura Milligan ID Rather Bee Stampin Facebook Live Tutorial

On yesterday’s Facebook Live I decided to share two cards from our upcoming Saleabration offering!  Saleabration, along with the release of our July-December Mini (Holiday) catalog both launch on July 1.  YAY!!

These cards feature the Wonderful World stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper – both are free with a $100 purchase.

Do you follow me on facebook?  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

 

Here is the recording of yesterday’s 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 the card mailed to them!

The first card uses the beautiful rose image along with the gorgeous Designer Series Paper.  I used a small strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I had cut with the scallop from the Scallop Contour dies and tucked it between the two DSP layers.  The rose image is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink onto a circle shape from the Beautiful Shapes dies. The rose is gorgeous – so much detail just by adding ink to paper!   I love the detail that the Beautiful Shape dies add to the circle shape.

Measurements for the DSP for this card:  1″ x 3 3/4″ and 3″ x 4″

For my second card, I showcased another beautiful DSP from this stamp set/dsp combo – also gorgeous!  My card base is Orchid Oasis.  I added a 2″ x 4″ piece of DSP to the card front.
I created the curve with Basic White card stock  (measuring 3 3/4″ x 4″) and the Basic Borders dies.  These are a favorite set of dies for me.  So much you can do with these and they add such a fun interest to a card front.
My flower – a beautiful Iris – was stamped with Starry Sky ink.  The words I used are from a new stamp set in the July-December Mini called Soft Seedlings – love it and I’ll be sharing some beautiful cards with this set for sure!
Only a few more days til we launch these new catalogs – so exciting!
