This is another card that I made during the OnStage Online event last November. Getting together with my friend Heather was a true highlight of the fall and it was a great joy to get together for some stamping fun and inspiration for the new (now retiring) January – June Mini catalog. We saw some really great, inspiring videos of projects that other demonstrators put together to highlight some of the suites in the catalog. I am ALWAYS blown away by the creativity of my fellow demonstrators. Every time I end up seeing at least one thing that makes me think “I NEVER would have thought to do that, and it is freakin’ amazing!”.

One of the aspects of a Stampin’ Up! event typically is a Make-N-Take session where we all get to play with some new goodies and enjoy some crafting time. For this event we made three cards (this is the second one) using items from the Dandy Garden Suite. Each of the cards were pretty simple to put together, and Heather spoiled me by pre-cutting the paper. She was also super-considerate and let me pick out the patterned paper designs so I could make the cards truly my own. My life is definitely blessed having such a fantastic stamping friend! 😊

This card includes 3 of the Ladybug Trinkets, which are so cute! I don’t typically go for trinkets like these because they make a card lumpy and make it risky to send them in the mail. These trinkets are small enough that I don’t think they are any more challenging (mail-wise) than the pearls or rhinestones. I love the little unusual accent that they add to this simple-to-create card. These, along with the patterned paper are on the retirement list from the January to June catalog, and the trinkets are discounted 50%! So, if you’ve been considering the Dandy Garden Suite, please check it out and get the retiring products while they’re still available. Happily, the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and coordinating punch are carried forward into the “big” catalog, so those will continue to be available.
