Good morning and happy Memorial Day! Hope you’ll have a great day with family and socially-distanced friends – with good food and fun. And a moment to remember the sacrifice behind the holiday!
Do you guys realize that we’re only NINE days away from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog going LIVE?!? Happy Dance Happy Dance!! Of course, that also means that we’re only EIGHT days from the end of the Retiring goodies – so….be sure to pick up your favorites before they’re gone for good!
Now – my card for today uses the Many Mates stamp set. Again. Sorry for the quick repeat, but…this card came to my brain and it needed this sentiment. This time, I paired it with some Misty Moonlight paper from the In Good Taste DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
This one is super easy – letting the wonderful In Good Taste do all the work.
I started with a pretty Misty Moonlight and Gray Granite paper from the In Good Taste DSP that I matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.
The middle panel is a second pattern in the DSP pack – also matted on Bumble Bee.
I ran a length of new Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 1/4″ Ribbon thru a slide from the Antiqued Corners & Slides (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) then I wrapped it around the small panel and secured it in the back with Glue Dots.
I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a piece of Gray Granite, in Night of Navy, I stamped the Many Mates sentiment using my Stamparatus. Then I punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch.
I added faux stitches with my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker, then I popped the tag on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered one Bumble Bee dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and…the card front was done!
On the inside, on a Gray Granite panel, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Night of Navy. Across the bottom is a Bumble Bee-matted strip of the In Good Taste DSP.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and then into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the “Celebrate” sentiment from Many Mates stamped across the front in Night of Navy…
…and more of the pretty In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.
Et voila! Many Mates is so stinkin’ useful – with sentiments ranging from this birthday wish to Sympathy, Thanks, retirement and congratulations!!
Look how different this card looks from the last one I made with this set.
Th difference? The In Good Taste DSP!
