Floating & Fluttering Thank You Card Tutorial

Today I’d like to share another tutorial with you. I’m running a bit behind because my internet is having issues. So please bear with me as I work through this problem over the next few days. Today’s card uses the Floating & Fluttering Bundle found in the 2021 January – June Mini.

This bundle of products doesn’t contain sentiments so it was perfect to team up with the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set Heal Your Heart (Sale-a-bration 152291) that you can earn when you purchase this bundle and spend $50 in product.

Want to see the card now? I chose one of my favorite color combos for it – Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.

When doing a technique like blending colors you’ll want to choose colors next to each other on the color wheel rather than across from each other for a more pleasing feel. If you use colors across from each other you’ll get a more “muddy” look when you blend them.

If you don’t remember your childhood art class basics, there are primary colors Red, Blue, and Yellow.

When primary colors are mixed with the color next to them you get the secondary colors, orange, violet, green. And of course, if there is more of one of the primary colors in the mix that is more dominate, you’ve got the tertiary colors or 3rd set of colors.

If you’ve been stamping for a while you probably do this intuitively with your color combinations without even realizing it as we all have color palettes we use repeatedly because they make us happy.

On to the tutorial. I’ve created both a video and PDF for you that I wanted to share.

Team Fun at the OnStage@Home After Party

I love sharing with my team and coming home after a Stampin’ Up! event is no different. While this year we gathered virtually we still were able to gather for an After party and share the excitement of the NEW 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.

So I created these cute little flag holders using the Quite Curvy Bundle (156228) that is currently available. I just love these little sweet birds!

I used the colors from our OnStage@Home swag so everything coordinated

and was able to put the logo on the inside of these folders with the little flag sticky notes. We are going to need lots of sticky notes!!!

I also put together some little charms using some images from the stamp sets, the catalog, and logo. Each one was a bit different

but they all had one thing in common – a prize patrol number!

Things were all set up for a light lunch and an couple of hours with the team.

Of course, no team event is without stamping, so I had packets for everyone with their little team gifts waiting for them all their stamping spot.

We also had a table to share all the Product Purchase Premiere goodies – there is nothing like being able to touch and feel in person!

And of course I shared my copy of the real Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalogs that they could look at too.

We made 4 projects using new products from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

And of course while we stamped prize patrol numbers were called and prizes were given out!

Lots of smiling faces

Want to see our projects?

Not only did stamp together, we got to use the new Blending Brushes found in the Mini Catalog and learn a fun new technique too.

I’ll be sharing these projects with you later so stop back by to see my tutorials and videos for these projects and more!
