Share A Milkshake Deckled Rectangles

Sometimes when I make a card for a swap or a class, I'll try several different options until I make up my mind on what the final design will be. Most of the time I'll cut and stamp different pieces and parts, but not necessarily a full card. I set those pieces in my scrap box until I find a use for them. That's how these two cards came about. The Share A Milkshake stamp set and dies will be retiring at the end of April, so if you haven't ordered them yet, get them before they're gone!


Colors: Basic White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red

USE IT UP Adorable Owl Gorgeous Garden Wanted To Say

This was a fun card to make! I had the owl cut out and colored in my scrap box- he was from a Sale-A-Bration 2023 stamp set called Adorable Owls. I had the leaf layer cut out already too and decided to put them together with the Happy Birthday greeting.

Colors: Basic Black, Basic White, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
The Gorgeous Garden Dies are going to be Retiring, so order them before they're gone!

USE IT UP Wanted To Say Expressions In Ink

Here's another retired Designer Series Paper (Expressions In Ink) that I was hoarding saving for just the right project. I had a bunch of frames left after cutting ovals from retired Fitting Florets dies for swaps and decided to use them with the awesome two layer Happy Birthday die.


The DSP is cut to 4 x 5 1/4, which gave me six from a 12x12" sheet, with a 3/4 x 4" strip for the insides too:


I also made some with Thank You and a different frame:

USE IT UP Rain Or Shine Playing In The Rain

The Playing In The Rain stamp set and dies are carrying over to the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog. When they were first introduced in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, there was also coordinating Rain Or Shine Designer Series Paper. I decided it was time to use up what I had left of that paper, so I made these cards:


There were a few sheets of the characters that I cut with dies for the ones that matched up and fussy-cut the rest.


I used up lots of pieces that I had in scrap box and added a variety of greetings


Colors: Basic Black, Basic White, Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lolly

USE IT UP Noble Deer Winter Wonderland

I had two sheets of this antler paper from a retired pack of Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper that I was hoarding waiting for just the right project to use. I finally decided to use it with a really old stamp set called Noble Deer.


DSP is cut to 4 x 5 1/4", piece for the inside is 3/4 x 4"

Colors: Basic Black, Basic White


I had a few smaller pieces (3 1/2" square) of the DSP so I made some with this layout.

USE IT UP Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper Part 2

Here's another pattern from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. I shared the first one yesterday. I I had two sheets of this one as well and cut them to 4 x 5 1/4" so I had enough for 12 cards. Check out what I made with them:




All of these were made with die-cut pieces I had in my stash. I had fun making these and really like how they turned out!

Colors: Basic White, Early Espresso, Evening Evergreen (past In Color)

USE IT UP Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper

I decided it was time to use up this retired Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. I think I was afraid to use it until I found just the right project. I had two sheets of it and cut them to 4 x 5 1/4" so I had enough for 12 cards. Check out what I made with them:





All of these were made with pieces and parts I had in my stash- die cuts, embossed pieces, bits of ribbon, and two stamped moose that I didn't use from making Christmas cards. I had fun making these and really like how they turned out!

Colors: Basic White (stamped moose), Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Suede (punched moose),Very Vanilla

Celebrate Today Magnet Board Kit

Have you seen the Celebrate Today Magnet Board Kit? It's part of the Kits Collection by Stampin' Up! It comes with a 12x12" white frame with a magnetic board, 2 sheets of 12x12" Designer Series Paper, magnet clips, double-sided cards, precut pieces, sticker sheets, and instructions. 


This is how I did mine:



I added a 12x12" Window Sheet. I had some old Stampin' Up! magnets (craft items) and I got some at BackStage in Las Vegas (the circles). Then I used the rest of the included supplies to make cards!


These are all the included cards and stickers, but I stamped "I'm So Sorry"


This group is all the included cards and stickers with added embellishments
 

Included cards and stickers and I added the stamped/die-cut sayings from Charming Sentiments/Sentiment Silhouettes Dies and Brass Butterflies



These four cards used a piece of the included 12x12 Designer Series Paper (one side is gray checked, the other is this marbled pink), pieces of Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Paper, included cards, scraps of card stock, various stamped greetings, and some added embellishments.


An included card and stickers with a stamped and fussy-cut greeting


An included card along with pieces I found in my scrap box and sequins


These are my favorite! That's the gray checked Designer Series Paper from the kit and Little Dreamers stamps and dies.

I wasn't sure about this kit at first and set it aside to work on it later. I'm glad I finally got it out and put it together! It's a fun addition to my craft room/office and I had fun coming up with ideas to use all the extra pieces!
