Fastest Birthday Card Ever!

Today I'm going to share with you the Fastest Birthday Card Ever! Those Memories and More cards come in super handy when you need to get a card done super quick and still have it look awesome..the card set I used for today's card is the Delightfully Detailed set.... 147038G

There are 50 total double sided designs and some laser cuts.  The sizes are 4 X 6 and 3 X 4. Now here's the super part---you don't even have to cut card bases because now Stampin'Up! has Large and Small Memories & More Whisper White cards & Envelopes that these M&M cards fit on exactly with no extra cutting on the card. And you don't have to worry about envelopes--they are included.  You may remember that when we used the large cards previously we had to cut them down to the 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 size to fit nicely on the regular sized card base---no more--just grab the M&M card base and you are ready to go!

148040GOK, here's the M&M card that I started with: Large hbd cardNow this would have been just fine for a quick and simple card--just adhere it to the card base and you are done!

But just add a bit more bling and a red layer base and you get the stepped up version: Large hbd decorated

I cut a Real Red cardstock layer 4 1/8 X 6 1/8, adhered that to the back of the M&M card--then adhered that to the M&M Large card with liquid glue. Then punched 2 Four Petal Flowers (new punch) and layered them with dimensionals and adhered to the card with another dimensional--there's a clear faceted gem as the flower center. Added 3 of the new Candle embellishments to the lower card front--they already have adhesive on the back! And there you have a really awesome card that only took less that a couple of minutes to assemble! Not bad, right?

Also, you can just use the Whisper White Memories & More Cards and Envelopes for your own card designing! Great base to just be able to start stamping!

So here it is.... Note card

I'm using some pre-colored Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes--that makes the stamping go really quickly. The focal point is from the Varied Vases Bundle--a cute little stamp set and its coordinating punch--yes, I said punch---it's really awesome and you can do tons of variations with it and the stamp set.

I'm going to give you the directions followed by a list of supplies...remember...

3. Using the stem (Varied Vases stamp set) stamp 2 stems in Stazon Black ink (#101406) that end in the vase "line" you drew --I recommend laying a piece of copy paper right below the line so that you don't have to worry about the stems extending outside the vase.

4. Add the punched vase to the table top using mini dimensionals--position so the stems are sticking out the vase top.

5. Punch two tulips from Lovely Lipstick cardstock and using mini dimensionals add these to the stamped stems.

Another Simply Gorgeous Card!

 

Today we're going to be creating Another Simply Gorgeous Card! This card was created by another Sandi's Swapper, Bonnie Robbins. Flourish Thinlets

As with Tuesday's card, my recommendation is to use the Precision Base Plate and the Die Brush to make this a simple but fabulous design. 

Note: my photograpic skills leave much to be desired--this card is actually Melan Mambo--but you'd be hard pressed to identify that color from the photo!

Again, just changing the colors of the middle layer and the die cut can change the 'mood' of the card and fit the occasion that you need, Change 'Just a Note' to Congratulations, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, or My Sympathy---and you have a card that is both versatile and gorgeous!

I'll give you the directions followed by the supply list so you can order what you need to create this beauty. Remember there are tons of products retiring from the Stampin'Up! annual catalog and the Occasions mini--stamp sets are assured until 5/25--then just until supplies run out.
