My Facebook Live Take 2 featured two more cards made with the Lots of Hearts Bundle.  The first, above, was a card with the front panel die cut – with the long strip of heart die.  I took the hearts that popped out of the die, and placed them on the inside of the card – just for fun!  It makes the outside look nice – and a fun surprise on the inside of the card!

Here’s a close up of the front of the card, and a look at the inside of the card with all the hearts.   I did stamp a greeting on the inside of the card, just didn’t get a picture of that.   The hearts are so cute!

When you use the die with all the hearts, you get the solid hearts that I used on the card above, and you also get little outlined shaped hearts, as shown below.  They are so cute and I sure didn’t want to throw them away – so I put them on a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine – and made a “clothesline” of hearts.  The little bird die seemed like a good addition to the card front – as if she is pulling the string of hearts along.

I used just a tiny drop of Liquid Glue to hold the hearts on the line, and attached the ends of the Baker’s Twine with glue dots.   Two sweet little cards – fun to create and fun to send to brighten someone’s day!

One in a Million! Two of My Top Picks Combined!

One in a Million! Two of My Top Picks Combined!

You're One in a Million Heart Card by Laura Milligan True Love DSP from Stampin' Up!

Today’s card focuses on 2 of my Top Picks from the January-June Mini Catalog! You know, after all of last week’s posts, that the True Love DSP is a top pick – and I did use it on today’s card – but I also love the Lots of Heart Bundle.   I’ll be featuring this bundle all week!  You may be wondering why I am sharing the Lots of Heart Bundle this week – after all, Valentine’s Day was yesterday –  but I LOVE hearts and think it’s important to tell people you love them ALL YEAR LONG!

Lots of Heart Bundle , My Top Pick, Laura Milligan, Shop Online 156202 _ $47.50 True Love Designer Series Paper, My Top Pick, Laura Milligan, Shop Online 154281 _ $11.50

I couldn’t resist creating this card with the black and white – and a touch of Rococo Rose.  The adorable scalloped heart and the black and white heart were both cropped with the Many Hearts Dies.

You're One in a Million Heart Card by Laura Milligan True Love DSP from Stampin' Up! 1

I used my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends to color the one flower (one in a million!) and then stamped the words (from the Quite Curvy stamp set) onto a small strip of Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I was able to “straighten” the curvy words by attaching it to my block in a straight line.   I stamped “one” onto a small piece of Rococo Rose to make it stand out in the phrase.

MEASUREMENTS: 

Basic White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Rococo Rose Cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4
True Love DSP: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8

You're One in a Million Heart Card by Laura Milligan True Love DSP from Stampin' Up! 2

INSTRUCTIONS:

Use the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the  Many Hearts dies to crop a large scalloped heart with Basic White cardstock,  and a floral heart from the True Love DSP.
Use Rococo Stampin’ Blends to add color to one flower in the cutout heart shape.
Straighten the Word stamp by pulling it straight and pushing it onto the clear block so that it is no longer curved.   Stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a small strip of Basic White cardstock.   Stamp the word “one” onto a small piece of Rococo Rose cardstock.
Use Paper Snips to cut the words apart.
To assemble the card, use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the Rococo Rose panel to the Basic White card base, and then add the striped DSP panel.
Use Stampin’ Seal to attach the white scalloped heart.  Add the floral heart with dimensionals.  Add a Black Matte dot to the center of the colored flower.
Use glue dots to attach each word.

Blending Brushes & True Love Designer Series Paper!

Blending Brushes & True Love Designer Series Paper!

True Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Card by Laura Milligan, I'd Ratehr Bee Stampin Card and Product

I’ve been featuring different ways to use the True Love Designer Series Paper this week – and today’s card is yet another idea!

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

I started with a panel of the DSP, ( 3 3/4 x 5), and used blending brushes to add some soft colors – seaside spray, rococo rose and old olive.   I then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut up the DSP – and positioned it on a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock.   You can see how I put this card together in this video:

It’s just a fun way to use up some DSP – and of course you could do this with any dsp you have in your stash!   Hope you will give it a try!

Thinking of You Card by Laura Milligan using the True Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

The cards I created on my Facebook Live yesterday featured this beautiful paper!   Of course, the point of what I am sharing this week is to help you with ideas on how to use your stash of designer papers!  This layout is a quick one – just select four pieces of DSP – and cut them 1 1/4 x 4.   You can add a greeting and a larger image as the focal point.

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

 

For my card, I cut the flower from one of the patterns from the True Love DSP.  There are three different patterns in this pack of DSP that have images that can be fussy cut!  We are spoiled by all of the dies we have to crop our images – but truly – these flowers are not that hard to cut with your trusty pair of Paper Snips!    And there is just something elegant about a black and white card!

The next card I created used the polka dot pattern from the DSP package – and I added some color with my blending brushes.  Have you tried them yet?  They are so great to use – and they are one of the tools we have that make you feel like an artist when you use them!   For the hummingbird card, I wanted to create a soft color palette – and used Seaside Spray to add color to the polka dot circle.   The hummingbird is also stamped in Seaside Spray ink – and then I used a blending brush to add some Highland Heather to her breast.  I finished her off with a touch of Wink of Stella.

The butterfly card is much brighter – I used Daffodil Delight ink to add color to the polka dots.  My butterfly is Pacific Point Ink with Tuxedo Black Memento ink as the outline.

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Available Now!

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Available Now!

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles from Stampin' Up! Cards by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin'

Today, Stampin’ Up! released dies to coordinate with the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set found in our January – June catalog.  The dies aren’t in the catalog – but are available starting today!  Also today, Stampin’ Up! has brought back the Hey Chick stamp set from Saleabration 2017 – and also a set of coordinating dies for that stamp set as well!

I made these two cards on my Facebook Live yesterday and am sharing below the recording if you’d care to watch. You’ll be able to “see” how I put these cards together – neither are difficult at all to make, and pack a punch of cuteness!

This first card uses the picket fence die – probably my favorite die in this set!  And I love the pop of color when it’s done in red!

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles from Stampin' Up! Cards by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin'The designer paper behind the chick is from the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper Stack which is one of our current FREE offerings through Saleabration – (get it for free with a $50 product order.)

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles from Stampin' Up! Cards by Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin'I wanted to add a Real Red dot to the card – and simply used my Dark Real Red Blend to color one of our In Color 2020-2020 Dots – to make it red and match my card!  Of course, you can do this with any blends – so you will always have an embellishment to match your card!

This next card has a fun pop up when it’s opened.  Don’t miss the Stitched With Whimsy dies – they are what I used to create the stitched border on the card front (and inside panel, too).  They reminded me of chicken scratch!  These dies are found on page 72 of our January – June Catalog and I feel like they are getting overlooked! They are a great set of dies and go along perfectly with these whimsical chicks!
