A Spectacular Celebration

Happy Sunday! I’m headed home today from my amazing trip to Charlotte where I was introduced to Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. What fun! I can’t wait to share the whole thing with you! While I was there, I was able to see some of my team members who traveled to Charlotte for the event. Because the North American events are split across a handful of sites, I missed seeing some team members who attended other venues. All of them received one of these cards (with a small gift from me):

Birthday Cheer, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI didn’t just make one – I made many. How cute do they look as a collection?

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Birthday Cheer. Even though the Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies were discontinued in March or early April, the amazingly fun Birthday Cheer stamp set is still available – and it’s a great stamp set to have. Big, bold images and big, bold sentiments – how can you not fall in love with this stamp set? Here’s a closer look:Birthday Cheer, Stampin' Up!, 148604Even though OnStage is not a birthday celebration, this “Time for a Spectacular Celebration” sentiment worked perfectly. I also added a fun heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to my simple card. Here’s a look at those dies:Be MIne Stitched Framelits Dies, Stampin' Up!, 148527
  • Lining it Up. The sentiment on the Lemon Lime Twist card panel lines up perfectly with the words on the inside of the Flirty Flamingo heart. Birthday Cheer, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingHow in the world did I do that?! Here’s a quick step-by-step (bear with me – it’s lengthy):
    • Cut a Lemon Lime Twist panels that measures 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″. Position the stamp in your Stamparatus, ink it up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamp it.
    • Cut a piece of Flirty Flamingo in the same measurement as the Lemon Lime Twist panel, and stamp the same sentiment in the same spot.
    • Cut a heart out of the Flirty Flamingo panel with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits die.
    • Glue it to the Lemon Lime Twist panel, placing it exactly over the sentiment.
    • Cut a bunch of hearts from scrap Flirty Flamingo. Using the cropped panel from above as a template, drop in your hearts to stamp the sentiment in the same place for each. That’s the easiest way to produce a bunch of super-awesome cards! ♥
  • Pink and Green. I love a pink-and-green combination. While there are so many options for both pink and green, I particularly love this bright, cheery combination of Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist. Love it!

  1. It was so great to see you there, even if it was just on the walk back from the celebration…

  2. Can’t wait to hear all abut On Stage.
    Love this card and the color combo. Thanks for the reminder about matching the sentiment stamping; it’s a great tip!

  3. Brian, your swap card is amazing! I had to read the instructions twice before my light bulb came on, but wow, I totally get it! (perhaps too much NyQuil) Looking forward to doing this technique. I’m so excited about the new product that coming!

  4. Hope you had fun at the On Stage this past weekend Brian (like there is the slightest possibility you wouldn’t). Can’t wait to see all the fun and creative swaps you received……along with lots of sneaks on the new catty.

  5. Adorable card with fun colors…hope you had a blast and missed seeing you! Hugs!

  6. Brilliant!!! Yes, you. You are brilliant! What a clever way to get around the problem of stamping one stamp on two different levels of paper. I too had to read it through a few times. What a great way to highlight the use of the Stamparatus as well. Thanks for your great directions on this card.

  7. Brian, you’re taking us back ten years, lol. You need to edit 2019-2010 to 2020, looking forward to the new catty!

  8. Cute card in your infinity shot today, Brian. Love the tips for getting the sentiment on two colors. I had a great time in Atlanta City meeting so many wonderful people, seeing the new catty and new products. Excitement overload! There was never a doubt that you wouldn’t enjoy OnStage in Charlotte!

  9. Woooohooooo, I love it , love the colors and perfect 👌🏽
    Hugs Frenchie ♥️♥️♥️

  10. Hope you had a good time at On Stage. Atlantic City was fun but missed seeing you! Love the color combo on your cards.

  11. a masterpiece the way you cropped the heart. beautiful bold colors!

  12. I love the picture of all your gorgeous cards laid out! I’m glad you had a wonderful time in Charlotte and I am really looking forward to seeing what you do with all the new products!

  13. Brian, this is a spectacular color combo…thx for the inspiration!
