Stampin Up Slim Sayings

I am always looking for way to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up!® Designer Series Paper.  It is so hard to make that first cut into the 12′ x12″ paper.  I don’t know why.  I buy it to use it but then it is so gorgeous, I hate cutting into it.  I am have made a much bigger effort to use it lately and this card is a perfect way to use up some of the leftover scraps you have laying around.

The best part of a card such as this one is it was very easy to make.  I used a strip of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper that I had left over.  It was 1″ x 12″.  I cut it into four strips that were 1″ x 3.50″ and evenly layered them onto a 4.5″ x 3.5″ piece Evening Evergreen cardstock.  I did this so I could wrap a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the strips of DSP.  Before I wrapped the ribbon, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Slim Sayings and cut it out using a die from the set called Waves.  This die set is in the upcoming 2022/2023 Annual Catalog but is available for pre-order now.  Then I threaded the ribbon through the die cut, wrapped it around the strips of the Designer Series Paper and tied a knot.  Lastly I layered it on an Evening Evergreen card base.

Sadly some of the products I used on this project are retiring on May 2nd.  Slim Sayings has coordinating dies called Slimline Cards are in the January – June Mini Catalog and they will be retiring on June 30th.  The Pansy Petals DSP and the Evening Evergreen Chevron Ribbon and both retiring on May 2nd or until supplies last.  The Waves Dies are in the upcoming Annual Catalog.

On a side note, I wanted to share that my posts may be shorter or less frequent for a while.  I tore my Achilles Tendon and had surgery on it last week.  I am not allowed to put any pressure on my foot for weeks.  Unfortunately, my stamp room is upstairs and I can not climb stairs a while.  I have made a few cards prior to this so I will have some posts.  A good thing is I was able to preorder some items from the new catalog that comes out in May.   The bad thing is I might have forgotten some things on my order and I might have order multiple things of the same items as I am a little groggy!  Thanks for your patience!
