Week of leftovers – P2

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is the second part of my “week of leftovers”! This quick and easy card feature’s one of the designs from the Peaceful Place DSP and the Welcoming Window Bundle! While I used this card to restock my birthday card stash, this can easily be for any occasion with your favorite sentiments! On top of all that, you use up a whole 12” x 12” sheet of the designer series paper to make six pretty cards, which we want to use up our paper and not hoard it because there are so many new beautiful and fun designer series papers coming out next week with the launch of the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog!

The base layer is this design from the Peaceful Place DSP, cut into six 4” x 5 ¼” pieces and six ¾” x 4” strips (for the inside of the card):

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Cut a 4”x 2 ¾” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the window frame in Crumb Cake ink, the small pot in Smoky Slate ink, and the leaf stamp on top of one small pot in Mint Macaron ink.

2. Cut a 4 ¼” x 3” piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and emboss with the checks folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders. This will be layered under the above piece.

3. On Basic White cardstock, stamp the large pot in Smoky Slate ink, the larger bouquet stamp in Mint Macaron ink, the coordinating second stamp flowers in Petal Pink ink, and die-cut both out with the coordinating Window Flower Box Dies.

4. Spritz a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with water and use the ledge embossing die to die-cut out.

5. You will need three of the 5mm Matte Black Dots, not pictured.

Use mini dimensionals to adhere the die-cut ledge centered at the bottom of the stamped window frame, adhere the die-cut flowerpot and die-cut bouquet together, place a dimensional behind the bouquet to adhere as shown to the die-cut ledge, and place the three 5mm Matte Black Dots as shown. This piece is adhered to the embossed Mint Macaron cardstock, use dimensionals to adhere this to the DSP base layer, and this completed piece is adhered to a Mint Macaron cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink, and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

For the coordinating envelope, I stamped the bouquet and the flowerpot in Mint Macaron, Petal Pink, and Smoky Slate inks, the same colors as the one on the card front:

And there you go, six quick and easy cards with coordinating envelopes ready for any occasion! This card is perfect for using the Stampin’ Up! Mini Cut & Emboss Machine, which takes up minimal space in your crafting area!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
