Celebrating 100 episodes!

On Saturday January 20, 2024 the 100th episode of Simply Saturday will post at 6:00am. I can barely believe it! In honor of this special milestone, the episode features not just one card for inspiration but 3!

The perfect products I’ll be showcasing are the Beautiful Balloons Bundle (stamp set + dies) and the coordinating DSP “Bright & Beautiful”. The colors are truly bright and beautiful and work so well together.

Card 1:

To make this card you’ll need:

  • Blueberry Bushel card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score and fold at 4 1/4″.
  • Bubble Bath card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Berry Burst card stock 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
  • Bright & Beautiful DSP 2″ x 4 1/2″
  • Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon
  • Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • Stampin’ pads (ink) in Berry Burst, Bubble Bath, Misty Moonlight
  • Basic White card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″ (for inside layer)

Simply glue on the Bubble Bath layer, followed by the DSP. Make a “banner” end on the Berry Burst card stock strip and attach it. Stamp the words and stamp and die cut the balloons then attach all with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Make a bow and attach, using a Mini Glue Dot. Add jewels. Stamp the inside white panel and the envelope to match.

Card 2:

To make this card you’ll need:

  • Lemon Lime Twist card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score and fold at 4 1/4″
  • Lemon Lolly card stock 5″ x 3 1/4″
  • (4) strips Bright & Beautiful DSP 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ of coordinating prints
  • Stampin’ Pads (ink) in Berry Burst, Lemon Lolly, Misty Moonlight (and I used Bubble Bath inside)
  • Tinsel Gems 4 pack

First, attach the 4 strips of DSP to the Lemon Lolly card stock. Stamp the words in Berry Burst ink directly onto the DSP. Attach layer to the card front. Stamp and die cut 2 large and 1 small balloon. Attach 1 with liquid adhesive and the remaining 2 with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Tinsel Gems.

Card 3:

This card is a Fun Fold and requires some measuring, cutting and scoring. In the (near) future, I post a tutorial to my YouTube Channel showing how to make this style of card.

To make this card you’ll need:

  • Bubble Bath card stock 8 1/2″ x 11″ cut specially and then scored at 3 1/8″ and 6 3/4″
  • Bright & Beautiful DSP in 3 coordinating patterns 4″ x 5 1/4″, 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Basic White card stock 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Misty Moonlight card stock – I die cut a circle using Stylish Shapes dies
  • scrap of white card stock – I die cut a smaller circle using Stylish Shapes dies.
  • Parakeet Party Baker’s Twine
  • Basic Rhinestone Jewels

The papers are each cut on a diagonal, according to the panel they will go on. The 3 DSP pieces as shown, and the white card stock is on the back side of the pink dots DSP. Stamp and die cut the balloons. Stamp the words and add confetti. Attach some looped Twine to the back of the blue circle before attaching the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Rhinestones.

These cards were SO much fun to make and I’m just so happy to share them with you on this momentous occasion. Thanks for your loyalty both here at my blog and on my YouTube Channel! To view the tutorial, see my Simply Saturday episode 100 below.

Hugs & Happy Stamping!
