Use Up Those Paper Scraps!

It’s time to use up those paper scraps before ordering brand new paper next week when the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Catalog goes live on June 3rd. Today’s card shows a fun way to use those pieces of paper that I know we all have sitting around.

Layered With Kindness stamp set

 

Unfortunately the sentiment, from the stamp set Layered with Kindness, has already sold out.  All stamp sets on the Last Chance List are now available only while supplies last so be sure to pick up your favorites before they’re gone.  You can see everything on the retiring list here

 

Stampin Up Best Dressed

 

The base of my card is Mint Macaron cardstock and I layered it with Purple Posy and Whisper White cardstock.  Such a pretty combination, don’t you think?

I used the Layering Ovals Dies to cut out the sentiment and the two scalloped ovals.  I love this set of dies because you have the option to layer using just a plain oval or you can be a bit more fancy and use the scalloped ones.

This really is a great way to use up your scraps to create a card to send to someone and brighten their day.  We all really need that right now, don’t we? You can find all the measurements below!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely

Today’s card features two designs from Best Dressed Designer Series Paper which is currently on the retiring list.  I’ve really enjoyed using this paper especially with 24 different designs to choose from! 

Stitched Shapes Dies

I also used the stamp set, Forever Lovely, which is also retiring. Tomorrow is the last day that retiring stamps will have guaranteed availability.  After tomorrow, they’ll be available while supplies last. 

 

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

The base of the card is Petal Pink as well as the top right panel, which I embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. The sentiment was stamped using Memento Ink and was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.  It’s layered with a Petal Pink circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  If you’d like the measurements, you can find them below the Supply List.

Peaceful Poppies

 

I created today’s card using the retiring Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper which is available while supplies last or June 2, 2020. The sentiment was cut out using the very popular Stitched So Sweetly Dies which are returning in the new Annual Catalog. Yay! I love these dies!  You can access your free tutorial below the Supply List!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper

Do you save all your scraps of Designer Series Paper? If you said, yes, I’ve got a card for you! 

 

Stitched Rectangles

 

I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock that measured 5-1/4″x 4″.  Then I cut my scraps of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (on sale and available while supplies last) into 1″ wide strips (the first two pieces were about 8″ long). With the strips hanging off of the cardstock (they’ll be trimmed off later), I began by placing down the first diagonal strip, beginning in the upper left hand corner.  The next long strip was placed down beside it, to the right. Once I figured out where I wanted all the pieces to go, I glued them down being careful to evenly space each one.  Then I turned the cardstock over and cut all the pieces hanging off the paper. That piece was then glued to a Basic Black cardstock base. The inspiration for my card comes from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Cathy Autrey, who made such a beautiful card using this technique that I couldn’t wait to give it a try! 

 

 

Kindness & Compassion stamp set

 

The sentiment used on my card comes from the stamp set, Kindness & Compassion. This set is retiring and will be guaranteed available until May 22nd, and after that, only while supplies last.  I cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a die-cutting machine.

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle

Before sharing today’s card, I want to let you know about some information I incorrectly stated the other day.  In the eleven years I’ve been with Stampin’ Up!, bundles have never returned in a new catalog.  I assumed that tradition would continue but I was wrong.  Several bundles are making a return in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (which debuts on June 3, 2020).  One of those bundles is the So Sentimental Bundle.  It was introduced in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog and it’s been a hot item ever since and hard to keep on the shelves.  I couldn’t be happier that the bundle price will continue but I apologize for stating incorrect information. Never assume, right?

To create today’s card I used the So Sentimental Bundle which includes the stamp set So Sentimental and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I also used two designs from the beautiful Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pack.  In the card above, I used Old Olive ink to stamp the sentiment and used Lovely Lipstick (a retiring In Color) in the card below.  

 

 

I made ten of these cards last night to send out to customers who have recently made a purchase through my online store.  Definitely a quick and easy card to make with this pretty paper!
