Well Said for GDP169

When I chose the colors for this week’s Global Design Project challenge (Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Pool Party), I thought they’d make a perfectly bright combination of Christmas-y colors. When I sat down to play with the colors, though, the bright collection of colors pushed me toward a Spring-themed card. I used the Well Said Bundle to make a sweet “miss you” card. Here’s my card for this week’s GDP Color Challenge:

  • Well Said. The Well Said Bundle, new in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog, includes the Well Said stamp set with 51 cling stamps and Well Written Framelits Dies with 24 dies. Just look at all the great words in these dies and in this stamp set. Click on the photo below to see the bundle in my online store:Well Said Bundle, Stampin' Up! 150609All of the cropped images on the front of my card are from the Well Written Framelits Dies that are part of this bundle – the leafed stems, the sentiments and the sweet bird. Here’s a closer look at the detailed dies:Well Said Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingHere are some projects from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog that beautifully showcase this bundle:Well Said Bundle samples, Stampin' Up!
  • Helping You Get This Bundle. Even with a 10% discount for both the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Framelits Dies, the bundle retails for $76.50 in the United States. That feels steep, but there are SO MANY incredible stamps and dies in this bundle. You need it – I promise. Here are some ways you can earn it or shave down the price:
    • If you place a workshop order (by yourself or in combination with orders from friends), you can use the rewards toward this bundle. During Sale-a-Bration, a $250 order earns $50 in rewards (10% of $250 plus $25 extra on orders over $250 during Sale-a-Bration. That’s a quick way to knock this bundle to $26.50. 🙂
    • Orders over $450 always earn a half-off item (in addition to the regular rewards). During Sale-a-Bration, a $450 order earns $88 in Stampin’ Rewards ($63 in rewards pulss $25 extra on orders over $250 during Sale-a-Bration) AND a half-off item. Wowza! Maybe an incentive to combine orders with a friend?
  • Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. With intricate and tiny dies like these, you can easily glue them down with small dabs of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are great for these dies, too!Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Stampin' Up! 144106The adhesive sheets have sheets with a layer of glue between. I cut a piece of the adhesive sheets, peeled one side off and pressed the glue side to the Granny Apple Green cardstock. I then cut the stems (placing the die on the cardstock side of the paper), pealed the waxy layer off the back of the diecut stems and glued them down. Easy!

  1. Brian, what an absolutely adorable card … I love everything about it!
    Have a great day!

  2. Fresh and pretty. The perfect perch for that little bird!

  3. Adorable card with this color combo!

  4. Beautiful card and the saying is one I would use often since I have moved away from all my friends and do miss them. I think this type card would put a bit smile on their faces. I know it would put a smile on my face if someone sent it to me. Great colors and, of course, the magnificent layering you are known for Brian.

    • Thanks so much, Grace! I agree that it’s a sweet collection of sentiments that make for specific or general cards. I know that your friends always love to receive cards from you – I’m one of them. ♥

  5. This has to be the best bundle to date. Great way to show it, B!

  6. Love this bright, sweet card, Brian, and your color combo. You are such an enabler. Now I want this bundle. Have a great day!

    • I love to enable – even when it doesn’t directly benefit me. It’s a great bundle, Hilda. I don’t think you’d be unhappy with it and will find hundreds of ways to use it. ♥

  7. Sweet indeed! Well said is next on my list!

  8. Simple, sweet and oh so stylish!
