I also discuss in the video a similar style used for the daisy patterned card I shared yesterday. You can find details for the daisy card here.

HEADS UP!  The demand by demonstrators during the pre-order of the stunning NEW Glitter Dots (10,000 sold) resulted in a back order and pushed the option to order this product from June 1 to the week of July 24. Stampin’ Up! is working hard to see if they can’t get them sooner and I’ll keep you posted.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

  2. Mary, What a great video. You always do such a great job. The cards are so pretty. The daisy one is so pretty. The other card is beautiful and so simple but very elegant.

    Wow! What a beautiful, yet very simple cards! I Love all of the New products that we have been allowed to see.
    It looks like it May give us some easier products, ie… the colorblock sheets, and the prefoiled ones, and the ability to make more difficult ones with all of the goodies! Such fun! Blessings, Lisa

    Love the new colors Mary, very bright and happy indeed.
    The stamp set is awesome too.

    Mary, I am a Stampin Up demonstrator and have followed your blog for years. I especially enjoy your clean and simple style. However, you rarely give measurements for the different elements of your cards either in your videos or on the blog making the job of re-creating your sample for my classes very time consuming. Lots of trial and error trying to make things fit. Many of your samples show the item name and number but not the measurement. You are quite inspirational to new demonstrators who are trying to prepare samples and do workshops . If they have to take a lot of time trying to “figure it out”, their time is not being effectively used. Please provide measurements in your future projects. Sincerely, Darlene Maszle

    • I appreciate your thoughts, Darlene. I do share key measurements fairly regularly but will keep this in mind 🙂 I often don’t share if I do a standard A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and layers are either 1/4″ or 1/8″ smaller. Please note, I did share the dimension of the color blocked area in the video.

  8. I very much like the colors and the designer series papers this time around. I can’t wait to get my hand son the new catalog and see what I can do!
