Wildly Grateful

Before I share today’s card, I’m happy to tell you a little bit about Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper sale that kicks off today. Between now and August 2, Stampin’ Up! is offering 15% off select Designer Series Papers. How wonderful is that?!

The card I’m sharing today accomplishes two goals: (1) it showcases the In the Wild Designer Series Paper (one of the papers in the Designer Series Paper Sale) and (2) it expresses my gratitude to Stampin’ Up! for this incredible sale. Here’s my card:

Lovely You, In the Wild Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian King

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Wildly Grateful. My card marries two “wild” elements from different Stampin’ Up! products in a fun way – the patterns and big cat are from the new In the Wild Designer Series Paper, and the sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set. Behind my tiger are 1/2″ strips of (as best I can tell) cheetah, leopard and tiger prints – such fun! Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the In the Wild Designer Series Paper:In the Wild Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, 155817The 1/2″ strips in the background and tiger on the focal panel of my card come from this fun pack of papers. Here’s a closer look: Lovely You, In the Wild Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, Brian KingI can’t think there’s a more perfect sentiment for this paper than the “wildly grateful” sentiment in the Lovely You stamp set. I wasn’t sure the sentiment would fit inside the Double Oval Punch shape – it fit perfectly, hanging a little off each side. Here’s a look at the Lovely You stamp set:Lovely You, Stampin Up!, 152525
  • Layer Measurements. The layout of my card is built with simple layers that perfectly showcase all of the products I want to showcase with my card. The layout can work with other layouts, so I wanted to share the measurements with you (starting with the base layer and working up from there):
    • Evening Evergreen – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″)
    • Stampin’ Dimensionals
    • Thick Basic White – 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″
    • 7 strips of In the Wild Designer Series Paper (each measures 4-3/4″ x 1/2″ for a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ panel)
    • Stampin’ Dimensionals
    • Thick Basic White – 3-5/8″ x 2-3/8″
    • Evening Evergreen – 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
    • In the Wild Designer Series Paper – tiger cut from patterned paper
    • Stampin’ Dimensionals
    • Thick Basic White – punched with Double Oval Punch
  • Color Combination. The colors in my card are pulled directly from the In the Wild Designer Series Paper – such a beautiful mix of colors. Cajun Craze works wonderfully with these patterns, but I really love that the paper includes two of Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2023 In Colors. If you like this mix of Cajun Craze, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference: Stampin Up!
