N is for Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes

Welcome back to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes found on page 19 in the Occasions Catalog.  These are easy to overlook but you don’t want to miss out on these little gems!  I have been on a roll making a bunch of these note cards. They are small and narrow and perfect for little notes to put in your child’s lunchbox, husband’s briefcase, or to give with homemade baked goods to a friend or neighbor.

My husband does most of the cooking in our house but I enjoying baking.  A few of my favorites are homemade strawberry bread, apple bread, and banana nut bread. Many friends brought us meals during my recovery and I thought I would bake some breads to show my appreciation. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is perfect for these adorable thank you cards to go with my loaves of bread.  The 2 1/4″ Circle Punch makes a quick envelope liner to coordinate with the card!

The sentiment from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set is perfect for the inside. There’s still plenty of room to add a personal message.

I also made some note cards to tuck in with customer orders. The leaves on the thank you stamp from A Good Day coordinates nicely with Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. I colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.

You get 20 Thick Whisper White cards and 20 envelopes for just $8.  They are really quick & easy to decorate. You can get 4 card fronts from just 1 piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper! Stampin’ Up!’s CEO, Sara Douglas, did a Facebook Live video showcasing a quick & easy way to cut 6 x 6 DSP to get 4 card fronts! You can Click Here to see her video. I stepped mine up a little with a layer of coordinating cardstock measuring 2 1/4 x 4 1/4. I added some ribbon and then stamped and punched the sentiment using the new 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from the Occasions catalog. I popped up the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like to challenge myself to use every little piece of DSP and so I used the leftover 2 x 2 piece to make this Easter card.

I cut the leftover piece of DSP in half so I had two 1″ x 2″ pieces.  I added a 2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White which I used to stamp the bunny from A Good Day Stamp Set and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I added Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon above and below the white piece. This little bunny is so cute! I added a little color with Stampin’ Blends.

My last card is a sweet treat holder for St. Patrick’s Day.

I found these chocolates at our local “Candy Kitchen” Shop. They have delicious homemade chocolates! I used some retired Emerald Envy DSP and punched a circle through the top layers using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I adhered the candy with a glue dot on the inside. The sentiment on the front is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the inside sentiment is from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set.

I is for Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper

I made a set of note cards using each of the designs.  How quick & easy is this?!

Simply cut the DSP the same size as your card and adhere to the front.  At this point you can choose to color with your favorite coloring tool (watercolor pencils, markers, sponge brayer, blender pens, or aqua painter) or keep it plain and simple. (I do love black & white!) You can even add a die cut or sentiment.  The new Dragonfly Dreams Detailed Dies coordinate with this DSP. I am giving this set as a gift so I opted to include some dies and sentiments and let the recipient decide.

I decorated stamp cases to hold my cards. The standard stamp case will hold up to 10 note cards & envelopes and the wide stamp case will hold 10 – 20.  You could even include a set of the new Stampin’ Up Watercolor Pencils in the case. (I love these!!)  I have given these decorated stamp cases as gifts before.  (Click HERE to see.) They say, “Give what you would love to receive.”

Check out this short video showing the different coloring techniques you can use with Inside the Lines Specialty Designer Series Paper!

I love all the different ways you can color this paper!

I cut a piece of 7 1/4 x 11 1/4 Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper and used the watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color.  I love to color! (Hmmm, this could explain why I am a preschool teacher.) When complete just slide into the sleeve on the stamp case.

I had so much fun making these! I also made this card and matching envelope to give to a coworker.

I thought a set of cards to color would be a perfect gift while she recovers from surgery. I’m sure she’ll appreciate some note cards to send thank you notes to everyone who brought meals, etc.  For the standard size case I cut a 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 piece of DSP and this time I left it plain. The DSP covers the front and the spine but not the back of the case.  I figured with the cards in the case the back looked fine. She can always take out the insert and color that too if she wants! After she uses the cards she can use the case to store the watercolor pencils or markers and this way she can easily see what’s inside with a quick glance at the back.

Which gift set would you prefer…colored or plain?
