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.

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!

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!

Wild & Sweet Stamp Set – Facebook Live Tutorial

Wild & Sweet Stamp Set – Facebook Live Tutorial

Wild & Sweet Koala Hello You Card by Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

The Wild and Sweet stamp set is  – well, sweet! I love the animals that are portrayed in the stamps.   This card today was inspired by a swap that I received from another demonstrator- I am not sure who that demonstrator is – if it was you, please let me know and I’ll be happy to give you credit! I took the swap card I received and changed up a few components –  I used the Deckled Edge Rectangle dies – they are new and are a great addition to our basic shapes of dies.  I think these will be a “go to” for our card making.

Also used is the new Fern embossing folder – and it’s embossed on vellum!  Such a fun look!  The greenery was punched from the Bough Punch – I punched it once in each color – Parakeet Party and Evening Evergreen, and used one of each color to frame the stamped image.  The word is stamped on a small circle cropped from the new Stylish Shapes dies – another set of dies that I have already used a ton!

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.
