Making It Slim with Ornate Style

Oh my Gosh!  I am totally on board with the latest craze of slimline cards! This may well be my favorite card I’ve ever made! (And it’s not even a fun fold!!! LOL)

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds and Ornate Style Slimline card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to color!  I find it so relaxing and had so much fun coloring this card with my Stampin’ Blends. I got my color inspiration from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. I made this card to fit in a #10 (business size) envelope. Because it is long I decided to use a bit of the DSP on the front of the envelope. How did I do coloring the card to match the DSP? (It’s really so easy with Blends!!!)

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds and Ornate Style Slimline card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I wanted to use the Stitched Rectangle Dies and I learned this cool trick from Gina K (of Gina K Designs) when I attended one of her workshops a few years ago. Just cut and stamp two of the dies and add a strip across the middle to make it appear seamless.

Here’s the measurements for this slimline card:

Card Base (So Saffron): 8 x 9 1/4 scored at 4
Basic Black: (2) 3 1/8 x 8 3/8, 3 x 1 5/8, 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to cut Scalloped Oval Die)
Shimmery White: Cut 2 Stitched Rectangles (3 x 4 3/8) *You will need to trim ~ 1/4″ to fit, 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 to stamp and cut with Layering Ovals Die, 3 x 8 1/4 (inside)
So Saffron: 3 x 1 1/2 embossed with Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 3/4 x 4 1/8 (envelope)

Supplies:
Stamp Sets: Ornate Style, Beauty Abounds (sentiment)  Papers:  Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, Shimmery White, Basic Back, So Saffron  Inks: Memento Black, Stampin’ Blends in So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Mango Melody  Accessories:  Stitched Rectangle Dies, Layering Oval Dies, Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals

What do you think of slimline cards? Do you like them or not? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below. I love how this sentiment from Beauty Abounds works so well with this “big” card! I also like that sometimes you want/need more space to write and this size card is perfect.

Have a great day! Stay Safe! Stay well!

Ornate Garden Mini Notebooks

What’s keeping you busy these days? I’ve been staying home and staying connected with friends and family. (Thank goodness for technology and crafts!) I learned how to use zoom the other day and had happy hour with 10 of my girlfriends. I am definitely spending more time in my craft room.  Stamping has always been my stress relief! Now, more than ever, I am trying to send more cards to help brighten someone’s day.

Today’s project showcases the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I made these adorable mini notebooks for my customer gifts this month.

I love these beautiful floral patterns! They coordinate perfectly with the Ornate Style Stamp Set.

I stamped the flowers in Early Espresso then used my Stampin’ Blends to color. Each notebook is a little different to coordinate with the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper. Here’s a close up of each.

The sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set. It has a lot of great sentiments and one I find myself using quite often! I bought these mini notebooks at the Dollar Tree. They are quick and easy to decorate! I cut the DSP 3 x 4 1/2 to start. It’s so easy to just glue the DSP to the cover then trim the edge with scissors. I write notes all the time and keep one of these in my purse.  I use mine for grocery lists and my daily “to do” list. It could even be a mini journal, garden notebook, or prayer book. I wish I had one when I was teaching to jot down the funny things kids say! These make great little gifts to give. I made several for friends for Christmas with a simple monogram.

Do you have a favorite notebook from today? I’d love to hear from you.  Leave a comment letting me know how you’ve been spending your time these days and I’ll pick a random winner to gift one of these mini notebooks.
