Weekly Deals - Nov 11 - Nov 17

This week I am bringing our weekly deals to you with a new twist. I am including a tutorial that will use at least one of the weekly deal items. This week I am using the 7/8-inch scallop circle punch. It coordinates so great with the Label Love stamp set from page 14 of the annual catalog. I have chose to use So Saffron and Pistachio Pudding - a nice neutral pastel color combo great for celebrating a baby before you know if its a boy or a girl. This tutorial rocks because with it you can save a bundle...

Close up of Coloring Technique and Label Love
Did I just say bundle?  OH, why yes, I did. Did you know that the Label Love stamp set can be purchased as a bundle? You can save 15% buy purchasing the bundle which includes the OTHER coordinating stamp that's not on sale this week.  How FREAKIN lucky is that!!!

Get the Artisan Label Punch and the Label Love stamp set for only $34.75 Wood (132723) or $28.75 Clear (132722)

The "celebrate" on this card is from the Embellished Events stamp set on page 105 of the annual catalog. 

Both Label Love and Embellished Events are great starter stamp sets - click the links to view my pinterest collections for both stamp sets. As you can see, you can create a multitude of cards from Wedding and Birthday to Sympathy and Gift Tags. 

Well, on to the tutorial.... enjoy and if you have any questions, please comment this post or email me!

Celebrate Cutest Baby Ever Card

Supplies and Tools
Step By Step Directions

1.       Cut Pistachio Pudding cardstock to 4 1/4” x 11, score at 5 1/2”. Cut one Whisper White cardstock layer to 4” x 5 1/4”.  Cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to three  1/4” strips.
2.       On scrap Whisper White card stock, stamp the Cutest Baby Ever stamp from Label Love in both Pistachio Pudding and So Saffron. Punch out the the So Saffron version with the Decorative Label Punch and the Pistachio Pudding version using the 7/8” scallop circle punch. Layer the scallop circle punch onto the So Saffron border with a dimensional. Place 3 Dimensionals on the back side of the background layer – do not remove backing paper at this time.
3.       With a scrap paper on your table surface, use 1/8 of a Stampin Sponge dipped in Pistachio Pudding ink to ink up each of the Dazzling Diamonds strips. Wipe backs of strips using paper towel to dry. Then back each one with Sticky Strip.
4.       Starting with one strip at a time, layer three strips at an angle as shown in card image spacing evenly apart – once sure of length, trim down, roughly and remove backing paper then adhere each one. Trim edges to Whisper White layer. Do crossing layer with remaining strips exactly like the first three strips.
5.       Remove backing from Dimensionals on “Cutest Baby Ever” punch piece and layer over the crisscross area.  Ink up the celebrate stamp from the Embellished Events stamp set and stamp “celebrate” along the top glittery strip.
