Hey y’all – welcome to the LAST SUNDAY of 2020!! Can you believe it? Besides some return to whatever “normal” is – what are your hopes and wishes for 2021?
Do not say World Peace. It’s too easy. 😉
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I pulled out a new stamp set bundle – called Many Messages – that you’ll be able to get on 5 Jan in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. It’s a fun stamp – there’s only ONE stamp in the case – but…it’s got like…24 sentiments on that one stamp. Better yet – it’s got a bundled die set – the Messages Die. THAT only has ONE die in it. So…it cuts ALL the sentiments at the same time! I paired this with the stunning Fine Art Floral DSP and the Art Gallery stamp set. Take a look-see:
This is a super easy card layout – and one that really lets your gorgeous designer paper – like the Fine Art Floral DSP – shine!
I cut a piece of the DSP and, from the center, cut a 2 5/8″ x 4″ Stitched Rectangle Die.
Then I matted both pieces on Terracotta Tile.
I wrapped a length of new Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (also coming on 5 Jan in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog) around the smaller panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots. I popped the panel onto the card front, lining up the image, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I tied a bow with the braided trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
Now. Let’s talk about the cool Many Messages stamp set with its bundled Messages Die.
I took a 5″ x 7″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and placed it into my Stamparatus. Then I inked the Many Messages set in Terracotta Tile ink and stamped the Whisper White panel.
I placed the Messages Die on top of the image – lining up the small heart at the top and the star at the bottom – and cut ALL those glorious sentiments in one go! 🙂
I saw an idea from another demonstrator on how to store all those sentiments and…I took it a little step further!
I got an inexpensive organizer and…labeled it. To do that – I stamped the Many Messages sentiments on a piece of Whisper White – and adhered the panel to a piece of Adhesive Sheet. Then I cut them all out and stuck all the little sentiments on top of the organizer. That lets me keep them all separate – AND have a quick reference to the shapes and sentiments I’ve got available to use! 🙂
So – I used one sentiment for this card – stamped in the Terracotta Tile – and adhered it over the bow – using doubled-up Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue on the top of the bow.
I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Art Gallery set in Terracotta Tile to a Whisper White panel. For this card, I added a flower from Art Gallery – using all four images to build it. I used Bumble Bee ink for the first three stamps – and then Terracotta Tile for the final (smallest) piece.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Bumble Bee card base, popped the card front on and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Art Gallery flower on the front…
…and more Fine Art Floral DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think this Many Messages stamp set – and all those glorious sentiments cut with one swoop thru your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Messages Die! – is going to be an awesome addition to your tool chest! And they’re good sized – letting you use beautiful papers or stamped images to full effect! I hope you like – and are adding this one to your gotta-have-it list!
Not for nuthin’ – the gorgeous Art Gallery Bundle and Fine Art Floral DSP are part of my Special Bundle #6 – Beauty in Bloom! Be sure to check it – and the other bundles – out soon!
