Instructions:

  1. Fold a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Soft Suede CS in half to create a card base. Glue a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Very Vanilla CS to the back inside of the card base.
  2. Die-cut and punch a variety of leaf shapes using Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie CS. Randomly glue the leaf shapes to a 3-13/16” x 5-1/16” piece of Very Vanilla CS with Multipurpose Liquid Glue; allow to dry completely.  Using the large fern die-cut, add texture to the front of the card stock piece by dry embossing in several locations.  The “sandwich” for dry embossing using a die-cut is: Plate #1, plate #2, card stock piece facing upwards, die-cut facing down, Silicone Craft Sheet, and plate #4.  Glue the embossed card to the center of the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Pumpkin Pie CS.  Mount to the center front of the card base.

Glue the die-cuts together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Mount to the center top of a 1-3/4” x 4” piece of Crumb Cake CS.  Wrap a piece of ribbon around the card stock below the thanks die-cuts and tie a knot; trim ribbon ends.  Glue the card stock piece to the card front slightly above center.
  4. Randomly add Gold sequins to the card front.
  5. Add a couple of die-cut leaves to the bottom right corner of the Very Vanilla CS piece on the inside of the card.

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!

create-a-birthday-card-with-Potted Geraniums Bundle-from-Stampin' Up!-Laura Milligan-

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.

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

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!
