Thank you to all of you who participated this past week in the Stampin' Pretty Pals Fond Farewell Blog Hop and Blog Candy Blowout. Stampin' Up! products from 17 blogs will be delivered to 17 lucky winners.
From over 400 comments, here's how you responded: If you had $50 extra to spend on the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini, many of you said you would purchase the Itty Bitty Bits stamps and accessories or flip for the Stampin' Up! Island Floral Bigz Die.
The random generated winner of my blog candy (shown above) is: (drum roll, please)
So onward to today's sneak peek of products from the new Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog (available July 1) PLUS a really cool tip from my friend Sandy Grupka on how to make two mini envelopes out of a single Whisper White Small Open-End Envelope (107286).
The new catty's Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper is the highlight of both mini cards I created today. The patterns are fresh, elegant and colorful. Take note of the results from using a Scallop Rectangle Clearlit (new, for use with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine) in Daffodil Delight. It provides a sweet frame for my "heartfelt thanks" sentiment.
DON'T MISS the Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon . . . I adore the touch of white trim along the sides.
Cut two 3 1/2" by 2 1/2" rectangles of designer series paper for flaps. I rounded the corners with a Corner Rounder Punch. Score at 1" (the long direction) and attach the 1" side to the front of the envelope.
Here's that the front overhang will look like.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Finished envelope size: 3 1/2" x 3 3/8"
- Finished card size: 3 1/4" x 3 1/8"
My second card uses a new Stampin' Up! stamp set called Friends Never Fade (available July 1). Recipes for both cards are below
