Facebook Live Tutorial – Potted Geraniums Birthday Card

Facebook Live Tutorial – Potted Geraniums Birthday Card

create-a-geranium-card-potted geranium bundle-Laura Milligan- Demonstrator-Earn Free Product

This was the card I created this week on my Facebook Live.  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

This card features the wonderful Potted Geranium Bundle –  we all agreed that geraniums make us feel happy – they are so cheerful!  The beauty of this bundle of course is that you can make your geraniums in your favorite color!

I used the Split Textures dies – they are “stand alone” dies from our new Annual Catalog, meaning they don’t coordinate with any particular stamp set- instead they coordinate with many stamp sets!  I thought this die looked like a trellis – with pots of geraniums in front !   With just a few stamps, and the coordinating Geranium dies, this card goes together quickly –  the stamp set is a two step one – and I explain that in the recording of the Facebook Live!  Enjoy!

Facebook Live Tutorial – Nature’s Prints Thank You Card

Facebook Live Tutorial – Nature’s Prints Thank You Card

Create this card with the Nature's Prints Bundle by Stampin' UP! Card by Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

This was the card I created this week on my Facebook Live.  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.  This features the Nature’s Prints bundle – one that is so beautiful!  I have created several cards with this set, using the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper – in beautiful blues and gray tones – but I wanted to switch it up for today’s Live and use black and white.

I used a Thick Basic White card base and then added a layer of vellum – that I had embossed with the Fern Embossing Folder.  I placed all of the various die cuts – the wreath, the “sprigs” and the stamped images (also die cut) on top of the vellum.  I used glue dots to hold all of the die cuts together to create a focal point – and positioned them to the back of the word label with dimensionals.   I also added a small piece of gingham ribbon – also in black and white!

To finish the card, I added quite a few Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to add some shimmer.  I added a small strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP to the inside of the card and also on the flap of an envelope.   I love this DSP – and it seemed to coordinate perfectly with the color scheme I used for my card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Little Note of Thanks with Sweet Songbirds

A Little Note of Thanks with Sweet Songbirds

A Little Note of Thanks Card with the Sweet Songbirds Bundle by Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

I am going to be doing Facebook Lives every day this week showcasing some of my favorite products in our new Annual Catalog- and on Tuesday I did a Facebook Live on my I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page. I featured the brand new Sweet Songbirds Bundle with new 2022-2024 In Colors – Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet!

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!

Laura Milligan YouTube Thumbnail Note of Thanks, Sweet Songbirds Bundle

This is a great bundle – it includes a punch for the bird shown on the bottom of my card – and don’t we all love a good punch? The smaller bird on the top of the card was fussy cut, but it wasn’t too bad to do – and the wing is part of the punch.

A Little Note of Thanks Card with the Sweet Songbirds Bundle by Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan Facebook Live

I used the Picture This Dies to create the background – the DSP is from the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper stack – this pattern/color is the new Orchid Oasis – I think this could be my favorite new In Color – although I reserve the right to change my mind on that!

Sweet little card and easy to assemble!   My kind of card!
