Just Thinking of You with the Many Mates Bundle

I was excited to play with some of my new products this weekend. As Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Annual Catalog goes live this coming week (can you believe we can place orders on Wednesday?!), I’m just getting around to some of the demonstrator pre-order items I picked up. Today’s card features an incredible die and fun sentiment from the Many Mates Bundle. Here’s my card:

Many Mates Bundle, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian KingTips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Many Mates Bundle. The Many Mates Bundle pairs an incredible background die with some really wonderful sentiments and a few layering elements. There are so many great ways to showcase the elements in the Many Medallions Dies. I just love it! Here’s a look at the sentiments in the Many Mates set and the dies in the Many Medallions Dies:Many Mates Bundle, Stampin Up! 154083Here’s what makes these dies so awesome – they can be used to create a large design (the largest die is 5-3/8″ x 4-3/16″), but that cutout can easily be snipped into strips, squares or other patterns. I snipped into the die to create the cutout on my card.
  • Stitched So Sweetly. You don’t have to wait for the new catalog to go live to order up a set of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  These dies debuted in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog as a part of the So Sentimental Bundle. While both the dies and set will be carried into the 2020 Annual Catalog, the bundle (a 10% discount) also carries forward. Here’s a look at the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Stampin Up! 151690I layered two of these dies to frame the sentiment on my card.

  • My Go-To Color Combination. For the start of this project, I knew I wanted to use a soothing combination of colors. My go-to color combination for tranquil and beautiful is Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Pretty Peacock. I just love it!

  1. boy oh boy! this bundle may be headed back to my wish list. you did such a wonderful job with the design and sentiment!

  2. I like all the elements of this card, including the smoky slate turned askew and the fancy dies for the sweet sentiment. As always I’ve saved the color combination. I have a hard time finding ways of using smoky slate, so thanks for the inspiration. Enjoy your day!

    • I’m so happy you like it, Hilda! Everything on the card was so symmetrical and straight, so I added that offset panel to throw off that balance a little. 🙂 Hope your day is wonderful! ♥

  3. So crisp. Love the color combo. Beautiful!

  4. Fabulous card my friend. I’m in LOVE with the Many Mates Bundle. The die is AWESOME.

  5. Love how you used all these dies and layers. What a great background!

  6. I too love Pretty Peacock and your combining it with Smokey Slate and Pool Party is absolutely awesome! For some reason I have overlooked the Many Medallions dies but now that I’ve seen them “in action” I’m thinking they are a must have. Thanks for sharing these amazing dies on such a gorgeous card with us.

    • Yay! I’m so glad you like it, Grace! There’s definitely a little “clean-up” necessary with these dies, but the end result was worth it. Such a versatile design! ♥
