For my Facebook Live yesterday, I shared two cards using the All Squared Away Bundle.  This bundle caught my eye the first time I leafed through our new catalog!   My first card is super simple – I used the Stamparatus to ensure perfect placement of the four square stamps and just added a simple panel for the words and a little bit of embellishment.

Have you seen the Loose Flower Flourishes?  I adore them!   I simply attach them with a glue dot – so easy and a great addition to this simple card.

My second card stepped up the first just a bit – I used the Floral Square Dies (a part of All Squared Away Bundle) to crop a Basic White flower and added it to one of the stamped squares, popping it up with Mini Dimensionals.  For this card, I stamped the greeting directly on one of the Pale Papaya stamped square images.

To finish this card, I added a few of the Loose Flower Flourishes.

Be sure to check back this week – I will be sharing a few more ideas with this awesome bundle!

A Masculine Birthday Card from My Facebook Live

Loving the Well Suited Suite – and the card I made today is quite a contract to the Leprechaun card I made and shared earlier this week!   The Bow Tie card is a more traditional masculine card!   I stamped the bow tie stamp onto three different patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and them cropped them with the coordinating die from the Suit & Tie dies.  Super cute and easy!

Take a look at my Facebook Live Take 2 from Wednesday to see how the Bow Tie card goes together – plus a Scrubs card complete with Stethoscope.

Made this with my daughter Sarah in mind – she does pediatric anesthesia and thought this would be a great card to send her way!

Can you guess what I used for the part of the stethoscope that would go in your ears?

5 Days Left to Earn Sale-a-Bration Products for Free

Sale-a-Bration Ends February 28, 2021 Laura Milligan, Earn Free Bees Too!

In my Facebook Live on Monday, I shared two cards featuring two different Saleabration products that are free with a $50 order – the beautiful Heal Your Heart stamp set and the Field and Floral DSP.

Heal Your Heart Stamp Set Laura Milligan

Create this hand stamped card with Fine Art Floral DSP and Heal Your Heart Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! by Laura Milligan, I'd Rathe Bee Stampin', Million Dollar Achiever

The first card I shared was the beautiful Heal Your Heart Stamp set paired it with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.   Does this card look familiar to you?  I copied it directly out of the Saleabration brochure – it is simple and very elegant looking!    Our catalogs are a source of amazing project ideas – don’t be afraid to use them in your crafting!

If you missed my FB Live, you can watch it on replay below!

I LOVE the font used in the Heal Your Heart stamp set –  for this card I stamped it in Night of Navy on a Basic White Stitched Circle.

The second card featured the Flower and Field DSP –  I punched 1 1/2″ circles from the DSP and added them to my card front.  I used the largest Stitched with Whimsy Dies to create a stitched border around the card front.

I pulled out my new favorite tool – the Blending Brushes – and added some Pool Party ink to my daisy – pulling this idea from the DSP – the daisys have a touch of Pool Party towards the center.   I love the colors in this card and in the DSP – it sure brings a touch of sunshine to my day – and hope it brightened your day as well!

Flower & Field DSP Laura Milligan

It’s so hard to believe that Saleabration ends on February 28, this coming Sunday! This week on my blog and on my Facebook Lives, I will be featuring products that you can earn for free with a qualifying order!  First up is this striking card using the Flower and Field Designer Series Paper and the Poppy Moments dies.

create this hand stamped card using the Poppy Moments Dies from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Laura Milligan Earn FREE BEEs

To create this card, I used my 1 1/2″ circle punch and punched out some different patterns from the DSP, and attached them to a panel of Basic White that I’d embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set – a must-have for any birthday occasion!

Tutorial:

Start with a panel of Basic White, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.

Emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 panel with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder and adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Use a 1 1/2″ circle punch to stamp out six circles – attach to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Wrap Linen Thread around the card front and secure with a knot.

Use the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the solid floral dies, using Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Crop the detailed Floral Dies with Rococo Rose cardstock.

Use Basic Black Cardstock to crop the floral centers – and adhere all of the floral pieces together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Attach to the card front with dimensionals

Stamp the greeting on a small strip of Crumb Cake cardstock with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Punch a small hole in the Crumb Cake panel and tie it to Linen Thread securing it with a bow.

To finish the card, add a few Black Matte Dots.

So Gorgeous! My Top Pick! True Love Designer Series Paper!

True Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Birthday Card by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin'

True Love Designer Series Paper, My Top Pick, Laura Milligan, Shop Online 154281 _ $11.50

This week I am focusing on the beautiful True Love Designer Series Paper – it is gorgeous – who doesn’t love a great black and white DSP?

My hope is to share some ways to use up your stash of Designer Series Paper –  As paper crafters, we all have that stash – and we should use it!

Today’s card goes together quickly – I just adhered a strip of DSP to the side of the card, and then cut the beautiful flower from the Designer Series Paper –  there are several different flowers that can be cut from the paper – of varying sizes.   All work great on a card front!  I added color to my flower with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blends.

My greeting is from a wonderful new word set called Happy Thoughts – found in the January – June catalog.   I love this set because the greetings are great – and because it includes greetings perfect for both the front and the inside of your cards.

MEASUREMENTS: 

Basic White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
True Love DSP: 1 x 5 1/2
Happy Thoughts Stamp Set

INSTRUCTIONS:

Adhere the strip of DSP to the card as shown.
Use Paper Snips to trim the flowers from the True Love DSP.
Color with Stampin’ Blends.
Loop and adhere the Black and White Baker’s Twine as shown.
Adhere the snipped flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
Embellish with three Matte Black Dots.

Hey Birthday Chick Fun-fold Card and Gift Packaging!

Hey Birthday Chick Bundle by Stampin' Up! Fun-fold card by Laura Milligan, Shop Online

Yesterday was my Facebook Live “Take Two” and I made two more projects featuring all the cute chick bundles!  First up was a fun fold card – that stands up – fun for the recipient to put on their desk or windowsill for their birthday!

Look how cute the corn stalks are – and even the detail on the corn cobs!  So cool!   These are from the Chick Dies and what is great is that the dies contain several of the dies corn cob and husks for the corn –  making it so easy to crop out several at once!

My next project was a really cute candy holder – the base of which is one of our Acetate boxes – sized to fit a full size card – but when you cut it in half – as I did, it becomes a cute little candy holder – I found some peanut butter eggs to put in my sample! I added some crumb cake colored shreds to make it look like a nest!
