Stampin’ Pretty Friday Rewind

Yes, some of these products have long retired.  However, I thought it would be fun to bring back a Stampin’ Pretty post and video tutorial (TWO are linked below) for you from the archives.  Stampin’ Up! still offers the Top Note Bigz Die, which is the star of the show!  I loved this card!

PPA101 Stampin’ Up! Summer Blues, July 7, 2011.



  • Stampin up flower fest summer mini catalog scallop circle punchThe Whisper White card base measures 5 1/2″ x 4″.  I cropped it 1/4″ less wide than a standard A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) so that I could “dangle” the Marina Mist layer over the right side and still fit it in a Whisper White Medium Envelope (107301).
  • That’s the Top Note Die in the background with a simple modification to make it square using a Big Shot.  Learn more with this Top Note Die Squared Video Tutorial.
  • I inked the flower image from Flower Fest (Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog) in Not Quite Navy and stamped it twice on Bashful Blue and once on Marina Mist.  I cropped out the images and stacked to build a custom flower.
  • The 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch coordinates with the full flower image.  So easy!  I used Paper Snips for the rest.
  • Thread your button with Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.   I used Marina Mist to add the charming touch.  Watch my 1 Minute to WOW video for a demonstration.
