This Little Piggy is Retiring!

Stampin’ Up! released the retirement list last week and I was so sad to see This Little Piggy stamp set on the list.  It has been one of my favorites since it’s release. A friend of mine has been making masks and was so thoughtful to send me some for my family.  I wanted to make a special thank you card to let her know how much I really appreciated her gift. This mask idea from Lorri Heiling was perfect!

I really like making window cards! The stamped image does double duty inside and out! I cut a circle from the Scalloped Note Card and stamped the piggy on the inside. I used Stampin’ Blends to color the pig. I fussy cut the face from another pig to add the mask then popped it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The mask is just a 3/8 x 5/8 piece of Whisper White cardstock scored 3 times with some twine wrapped around and secured on the back with a dimensional.

This is the perfect card to send to someone during this pandemic to bring a smile to their face! (It certainly brought a smile to mine!) During this “stay at home” time, I’ve been making a lot more cards to send to others!  Hope you can too!

Stampin’ Up! released a digital stamp set packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies.

Ornate Garden Thanks and Note Card Tips & Tricks

I love Stampin’ Up! note cards & envelopes! You get 20 cards & envelopes in a pack all scored and ready to go! They are my “go to” favorite for thank you cards as well as quick & easy (and economical!) for when you need to make multiple cards!  I have been “sheltering in place” and making many cards lately to send to friends, family, nursing homes, and our essential workers. Here’s a note card I made with the gorgeous new Ornate Garden Suite.

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Ornate Layers Dies in this suite are exquisite! They really add a beautiful layer to any card! I love how there’s one that fits the note cards perfectly!  Here’s the details:

  • Card Base: Whisper White Note Card
  • Old Olive layers: 3 3/8 x 4 7/8, 2 3/16 x 3 9/16
  • Early Espresso Layer: 3 1/2 x 5 cut with Ornate Layers Die
  • Whisper White Layer: 2 1/16 x 3 7/16
  • Stamp Daisy from Ornate Style Stamp Set in Early Espresso on Whisper White piece toward the top.
  • Color Daisy with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Blends.
  • Stamp Thanks from Ornate Thanks Stamp Set in Early Espresso on Whisper White piece along the bottom.
  • Adhere all the layers together.
  • Add 3/4 x 2 1/16 piece of DSP to Whisper White layer.
  • Add Old Olive ribbon from Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack with Mini Glue Dot.
  • Stamp and color envelope to coordinate.

You can easily adapt any note card to a standard size card.  One way is simply to cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of coordinating cardstock and adhere the note card on top.

My family likes to recycle the cards I send them. It’s really kind of comical to see how they reuse them. I thought I would make is easier for them from now on by sending note cards. Here’s another quick tip/trick with note cards…

Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and score it at 4 1/4. Then cut the note card in half. Adhere the top piece to the front of the card and turn over the other piece to adhere the written part to the inside of the card. Now you have a clean white piece to write on the inside. Quick & easy!!!

Which one do you prefer?

You can use note cards in so many ways! I shared previously how I used a note card (I stamped on the wrong side) to make a unique fun fold. Click HERE or on the image below to see the original post.

You could easily adapt this card to use with the Ornate Style stamp set or any floral stamp.
