Laura and Lucy Video! – Sending Well Wishes with A Fish & A Wish!

Create this card using the Fish & a Wish Bundle by Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

It’s always a great day when my friend Lucy comes over.  We had a fun day – including going to a movie (with lots and lots of popcorn!) and made a video of us making this cute card.  A Fish & A Wish card is such a great bundle – it has a punch and I know we all love a good punch bundle like this one!

Enjoy our video and I guarantee Lucy will bring a bright spot to your day!

Create this card using the Sunny Splash Stamp Set Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

Here’s a quick little video tutorial for a recent card I made. Recovering from some outpatient foot surgery so need to “lay low” for awhile but have worked on a few posts ahead of time so keep checking back, although posts may be a bit sporadic for awhile!

I love the Sunny Splash stamp set with the adorable vintage looking bathing suits!  I’ll be featuring this stamp set in my July Bingo at the end of the month – registration is now open and closes July 14.

Tutorial – Wonderful World Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek!

Tutorial – Wonderful World Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek!

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.

Do you follow me on facebook?  You can find all my facebook live recordings on my  I’d Rather Bee Stampin’ page.

 

Here is the recording of yesterday’s 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 the card mailed to them!

Laura Milligan YouTube Thumbnail Stampin Up! Wonderful World Card Duo

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!

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!
