3-2-1 Stamp Weds July 7, 2021: Pinwheel Tower Evergreen Elegance

Evergreen Elegance Fun Fold: Pinwheel Tower card (see video for alternative DSP/patterned paper)

This project on 3-2-1 Stamp on FaceBook Live today ended up being a toughie! I don’t think I’ve ever demonstrated a card and then when done, decided that I didn’t like it! The card I had made with Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper looked great to me so I cut supplies with a Christmas theme, fully expecting everything to go just fine. Well … I ended up adding a few things to the original card and the photo above is what I ended up with and this time I like it!

I changed the original front of the card so that it now is the back. Here’s a picture of the back – I preferred it this way so that there is room to add a personalize greeting on the Basic White panel.

Here is the link to the 2 videos on FaceBook (the original & the card update) and below that, you will find the tutorial for you to view and/or print. There are 2 videos as I wanted to give you an update on the 2nd version of the card. I really do recommend using the tutorial to get the measurements you need for card stock and Designer Series Paper (DSP) and then using the video to assemble. It’s tough finding wording to explain this one so, as usual, if you have questions about this project, please let me know. Click on the blue coloured words below and the link will take you to the video(s).

3-2-1 Stamp: Butterfly Brilliance Collection

Each Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 pm MDT, you’ll find me on FaceBook at Ink and Sparkle Stamping with Sue doing a Live video. This week I chose  3 card stock colours2 stamp sets and 1 ink colour. Below you will find a free tutorial that you can view and print if you wish. To view the FaceBook Live post, click the link HERE. When you “like”, “comment” and “share” the FaceBook post with the video, you will be in on the possibility of receiving a copy of the card in the mail. Each share gets you 5 more entries!

This week, I chose the brand new Butterfly Collection as my focus. This is an exclusive group of products from the upcoming 2021-22 Annual Catalogue. Stampin’ Up! describes the products like this: “Prepare yourself for a burst of butterflies with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp. Whatever you do with it, the results will be glorious!” NOTE: I chose to cut one butterfly from the stamp and separate it from the crowd, so to speak, and stamp the single image for this project. You definitely don’t need to do this — you can apply ink to the stamp in the area you wish and press the front of the paper down onto the stamp. I did cut the stamp apart in a way that the image can be temporarily rejoined to the full image if I need that to happen.

The 12″ x 12″ Natural Touch and 6″ x 6″ Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Papers in this collection are only available in this exclusive promotion ending May 3rd and only while supplies last. You can get started on your butterfly creativity and save 10% too with the full Collection (order #1594080 $97.00) and this includes the 2 Designer Series Papers, the stamp set and die set. Items can be purchased separately as well.

Did you know … you can choose all or part of the Butterfly Brilliance Collection as part of a Stampin’ Up! starter kit which gives you the option of purchasing at a minimum 20% off retail. There is no requirement to hold classes but you certainly can!
