I used only one stamp set – Embellished Events (page 26 of the Stampin’ Up catalog).  I love this stamp set because it covers everything – birthdays, thank you, Christmas, baby, wedding, sympathy, friendship, and anniversary.

This set is perfect for the beginner stamper too because with just one stamp set you have everything you need.   A Flash Card to Go set, a few punches, a set of Stampin’ Write markers and you’re set.

Want to take them up a notch?  Each card has a bit of Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle on it.  Nice touch, don’t you think?

  • Cut your colored FLASH CARD Cardstock to 3″ x 2 3/4″.  Punch a scallop oval from the center.
  • Cut your neutral FLASH CARD Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 2 1/2″.
  • With the remaining piece of colored cardstock, punch a Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border.
  • With the remaining piece of neutral cardstock, stamp and punch out sentiment.
  • Adhere cards together and add Silver Sparkle to make your cards extra special.

Here’s what I used on today’s cards:

  • Embellished Events   131984 (wood)  126497 (clear)
  • Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle   127845
  • Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch   119275

  11. Molly says:

    Brilliant, Connie! As a matter of face, today I need a baby card in a hurry and wish I had the stamp set with the ‘A new baby makes a new grandmother’ stamp for a co-worker. The card I’ll make her tonight must have a little sparkly crown because her grand baby was born the same day as the new Royal Baby. Her very own prince! Thank you for the inspiration as always! (Don’t tell, I think I’ll make a set of these for my daughter for Christmas–thank you for the project list too.)

  12. Bridget Speller says:

    Connie, Thank you.My mojo has left me and here is just what I need and better still I have the stamp set already!! You always come up trumps when I’m desperate.

  13. Phoebe says:

    I love this!
    Since stampin up doesn’t do deliveries outside of the U.S. and Canada, i have to make my rare purchases thru a friend of a friend of a friend so i only have a very limited collection of stamps and punches. (I don’t even have a Big Shot) Your techniques always help me extend the the versatility of the few stamps and punches i have. This set happens to be one of them. I had to sub the modern label punch for the scallop oval and oval punches though.

    By the way, may i request you to feature the six-sided sampler bundle?

    Connie, great new set of flash cards. I didn’t have that set but I do have “Got Treats” (retired). It made some really cute holiday cards that I can have on hand for the year. Thanks for sharing your talent.
