Everything Beautiful Starts with Love

Stampin’ Up!’s Weekly Deals promotion (select discounted product for this week only) includes three products Emma and I showcased in our last Super-Awesome Fun Time Card Kit. We saw many of those during our bonus Zoom call yesterday where people shared their projects and experiences with the kit. What fun! In-line with the “no-stamping” projects we designed for our last kit with the Texture Chic Memories & More Cards, I created this card to share with the group (unfortunately my internet service dropped halfway through the call, so I wasn’t able to share it). Here’s my card:

Texture Chic Memories & More Cards, Stampin Up!, Brian King

It’s rare that I make projects with no ink or stamping, but it happens. This card is a combination of cardstock, Memories & More Cards and dimensional layering. My card is build with just two of the Texture Chic Memories & More cards (one large and one small).

Here’s a look at the Texture Chic Memories & More cards, which are marked 20% off this week:

Here’s a look at the two cards I used:

Texture Chic Memories & More Cards, Stampin Up!, Brian King

How beautiful are the soft colors of the leaves in this panel? Gorgeous! Here’s How I built this card:

  • I cut the large Petal Pink card to 5-1/4″ tall (trimming off both sides so the sentiment I would cover up was centered on the panel). I mounted the panel to a base of Petal Pink cardstock.
  • I carefully cropped the sentiment from the small card with my Paper Trimmer, starting and ending the cutting inside the panel.
  • I layered base and sentiment with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen cardstock.
  • Between the sentiment and beautiful base, I added a square of vellum cardstock.

It was fun to transform these simple panels into a dimensional card that doesn’t look like it was created with flat, pre-printed cards. The sweet colors in this page of papers make me so happy and really set the tone for this card. What looks like So Saffron in this card is actually a diluted version of Mango Melody. It’s the sweet mix of pink blue and green, though, that I love the most. If you like this combination of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Soft Succulent as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:

  1. My oh my Brian, if only my brain worked like yours…wow! The layering on this card is perfection! So beautiful!

  2. Beautiful! This is one I have to CASE. The Super Awesome Fun Time kit really lived up to its name this month! I had a great time making the cards with this kit and learning how to use the Memories and More for card making. It was truly fun!

  3. This is fabulous, for both its overall aesthetic and color palette and for the creative way you used the M&M cards. Just perfection!

  4. Out of the park, my friend. Gorgeous!

  5. Your card is beautiful from the M&M kit. So sorry we missed it yesterday in the fun zoom chat. The kit is wonderful, and the cards you & Emma made for the kits were absolutely lovely. It is a very quick hour and fun all the way. I’m looking forward to the next kit. I hope your internet service is working today. Enjoy your day!

  6. Beautiful card! Loved the kit this month and sorry to miss you for most of the call. I know you were so bummed! I hope all is good now! Thanks for everything! 🙂

  7. Yes, it was a bummer your internet went down! Missed seeing and hearing your comments. I really enjoy seeing everyone’s creations on the call! I never know how to use these memories and more sets, this will hopefully give m inspiration on any future ones I buy. Still haven’t figured out how to get the “king” out of the spam folder…but I’ll work on it! Lol

  8. Soft and pretty!

  9. Wow!! Double wow!! Your card is stunning!

  10. I love how you took your love for paper crafting, challenged yourself and made something beautiful!
