It’s finally here! Today’s the day when customers can finally order from the bright new January to June 2020 Mini Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!. What’s even more exciting is that the Sale-A-Bration promotion starts today too. I know you’re keen to check out the new publications so my project today will be a very quick one.
I am simply in love with this bright hibiscus flower design from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. It’s also one of the 48 double-sided designs in the 6″ x 6″ sample pack that you get for free if you join Stampin’ Up! between now and March 31st.
I began by cutting off a 2-1/4″ strip from the 6″ x 6″ sheet and attached it to the flap of a Whisper White Medium Envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow). Then with my Paper Snips I cut the DSP to shape, using the end of the flap as a guide.
Next I used my Paper Trimmer to cut and score some Thick Whisper White Card. I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create my card base.
From the remaining DSP I cut a 3″ x 5-1/2″ piece and glued that to the front of my card base. Then I added a 1/4″ strip of Old Olive Card up against the edge of the DSP.
At this point I remembered that I needed to add the sentiment chosen from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. So using Early Espresso ink I stamped it on the white area of my card base.
That just left a 3/4″ strip of the DSP that I cut down to 5-1/4″ long. With liquid glue I fixed the strip along the bottom of a layer of Whisper White Card. Then I added the layer to the inside of my card base and my project was complete.
NEW MINI CATALOGUE

BUNDLE BONUS – I bought the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set as part of a bundle with the In The Tropics Dies. This meant I saved 10% off the cost of buying the two items separately. I’ve included both options in my product list so you can explore these further if you wish.
