My Downline and I have done another Mystery Parts event (thanks again, Diana Gibbs). This is where one of us sends card making parts to the others in the group and we make a card out of them. We send the cardstock, Designer Series Paper and an embellishment or two. Each of us has to use our own stamps and we can add anything we want to it as long as we use the parts that were sent.
Here is a photograph of the parts:
I sent them each some Night Of Navy and Basic White cardstock, a piece of the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper which is in the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog and a piece of twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
Here is my card.
Whenever I decide to purchase a stamp set or bundle, I try to see if there are more than one way to use it. Can it be used for birthdays and thanks? Anniversaries and Valentines? Sympathy and hello? You get the picture. When I first saw the stamp set called Forever and Always and the coordinating dies called Always I fell in love with the dies. I love big word dies! Although the words love and always are normally associated with anniversaries and Valentines, I realized the flowers can be used anytime and the words can be used for my grandchildren! It was just the excuse I needed to buy it. I have already made a card for my granddaughter, Emy, which I will show sometime in the future.
To make this card I first cut a 4″ x 5.5″ piece of the Sale-a-bration Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. You can get this paper for FREE with a qualifying order until February 28th. As a matter of fact, if you purchase the Forever & Always Bundle (you’ll save 10% by doing this) and Memento Ink, Stampin Blends or a pack of cardstock, you will be able to get this Designer Series Paper for free! Then I stamped the three flowers in Memento Black Ink and colored them with Rococo Rose Stampin Blends. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink and then cut everything out using the coordinating dies. The sentiment is from that stamp set called Peaceful Moments which is in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.
Here are the other cards the ladies made using these products. I love how each one came out differently.
