Make A Thanksgiving Card with the Coming Home Bundle

Today's project is a Thanksgiving card made with the awesome Coming Home Bundle [155144] from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.   It's also important to mention that with each purchase of this stamp set, bundle, or suite, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility as part of our Making A Difference Program.

From the Stampin' Up! Home Office:

At Stampin’ Up!, people are at the heart of everything we do. In addition to bringing people together through creativity, we want to always give back to our communities. The Making a Difference program focuses on ways that employees, demonstrators, and customers around the globe can work together to better the lives of others.

This card made with the Coming Home Bundle [155144] was created during a recent Facebook Live broadcast.  My lives on Facebook are rightfully named "Craft and Chat" because that's what we do!  While a little of the chatter was omitted, I hope you will enjoy the rest of the recording!

Lisa's Inklings:

Handmade Card of Gratitude with Stampin' Up! Beautiful World

Beautiful-world-gratitude-card

Handmade Card of Gratitude with Stampin' Up! Beautiful World Bundle (English) [154091] from Lisa Brown, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Today's project is a card of gratitude featuring Stampin' Up! Beautiful World.  This bundle and suite of products is absolutely awesome!   It was on my first pre-order as a demonstrator and it was so popular, items in the suite were on backorder until recently.

This card layout was one shared with my Stars team recently.  The dimensions and details were shared and everyone was invited to choose a color scheme, supplies, and stamps to complete the project.  It was fun seeing all the different versions of the same layout.

Here's the how-to video tutorial then read on for more details.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here's the inside of the card.  The Sponge Brayer [141714] added the color to the Whisper White Cardstock [100730] piece that was cut 4 x 5-1/4.

Known as the Scrappy Strip Technique, you may have seen card samples with this technique and I sit and wonder why it took me so long to try it! It's so very simple!

Here are the supplies for the first card...

Product List

IMG_3816Here are the supplies for the Sunshine Card...

Product List

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base measures 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.
  • Layer is cut 5-1/4 x 4.  You can cut this down to preferred size after you get the strips glued.
  • Try to cut strips 5 to 5-1/2 inches long.  I try to start with a piece that's at least 5-1/2" in length.
  • First strip should run straight with the edge and not overhang the cardstock layer.

Thanks for stopping by for this "Ridiculously Awesome" easy and fun technique! Now it's your turn to try!
