More Than Tripling the Cards from the Saying Thanks Kit

I love challenging myself to come up with ways to double or triple the contents of Stampin’ Up! kits. Today I’m sharing how I re-designed the Saying Thanks kit from the Kits Collection which debuted about a month ago. When I started creating, I first just doubled the cards. But because I cut into the envelopes, I then had extra envelope flaps and made 3 more cards. After tripling the cards, I challenged myself to make one more. So I turned 3 cards into 10. And with this kit doing that with the 2 other sets, you can turn 9 cards into 30…more than tripling the cards from the kit!

I just showed live on YouTube and on Facebook about an hour ago step-by-step directions for creating these cards by adding a few sheets of Basic Black cardstock, a pack of envelopes (to make up for the ones that we are using for more card designs and layers), Tuxedo Black ink, sentiments from the Happy Labels Stamp Set, and a little more coordinating product. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or tune into my events on my Facebook Page so you can get updates when I share and go live).

During the Silver Elite Retreat this past weekend, we each put together a sampling of these cards. (Sorry for the lighting. Photographing at the cabin was challenging me a bit.) You can see that even if you want to make the cards as intended, you can still add a little variation here or there.

January 2023 Silver Elite Retreat

I just returned from a wonderful weekend up north celebrating my Silver Elite team members, Cheryl Lee and Nancy Forsberg! After the last two years were held elsewhere (online and at an Airbnb in St. Paul, MN), this year’s Silver Elite Retreat was back at my parents’ place in northern Minnesota at their beautiful cabin/home in the woods. My mom and dad once again made it feel like a Bed & Breakfast experience and helped me to really make this get-away something special.

We left the Twin Cities at around 9:30 AM on Friday morning, stopped at Forest Lake Restaurant in Grand Rapids for lunch (yum),…

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

and arrived at the cabin around 3:00. Normally we would’ve gotten there a bit sooner since it’s less than a 4 hour drive, but it was very windy and snowy for the first part of the trip. And we did what the other drivers around us did and took it very slow.

When we arrived, it was the perfect winter day…beautiful blue sky with temps in the teens.

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The forecast for the coming days called for a big drop in temperature though. So after we unpacked, settled in, and visited for a bit, my dad and I went sledding for about 20 minutes or so. I was craving this!! Hahaha! They have an awesome hill up there, but we couldn’t convince anyone else to go with us.

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

After a tasty taco dinner, we did some paper crafting and finished nearly half the planned make-n-take projects I brought up – we had the energy!

The next day (after a great night’s sleep), we had a lovely breakfast of scrambled eggs, bagels, yogurt, bacon and fruit…

…and then got going on the rest of the projects completing them by early afternoon.

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We had so much fun relaxing and crafting. And it made me giggle when I had them try to guess how their pieces would go together for one of their cards before I actually showed it to them. And of course I had to take photos of their guesses.

During this whole retreat we each made:

  • The Sweet Treats boxes with the belly bands that I shared on January 25th.
  • The Waffle Cone cards that I shared on January 28th.
  • 20 cards from the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More card pack.
  • A fun fold card featuring the Easter Bunny stamp set and Day at the Farm Designer Paper.
  • And cards from the Saying Thanks kit.

I’ll be sharing these last three projects in the near future, so be sure you are subscribed to my blog posts so you don’t miss out.

These are the variations of the waffle cone cards we each made. I even did another version because I didn’t feel my original had enough ice cream. And I added it to my original blog post if you want to check out a larger version of the photo. (Sorry for the lighting in the first 3 images. Photographing at the cabin was challenging me a bit.)

After our chef salad lunch on Saturday with no more planned stamping projects, Cheryl and Nancy got out their wine tumblers (one of the gifts I gave them) and enjoyed a beverage.

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We all spent the rest of the weekend talking and laughing, eating more good food (chicken salad, breads, steamed broccoli, and pie for dinner), and enjoying a bit of TV watching Emeril Lagasse cook.

It was too cold to go on a long walk (it was close to 0 degrees F), but we DID venture outdoors to see the “garage room” – another area to stay on their property that is only heated by a wood stove since it sits away from the main house. This is another view of the cabin/house from the deck of the garage room.

And this was the sunset we saw from the cabin on Saturday evening. (Thanks for the photo, Dad!)

Mom and dad, thank you for hosting, having everything so comfortable and welcoming, helping me with the meals, and more! Nancy & Cheryl, thank you for spending this time with me and letting me spoil you a bit! You are both SOOooo amazing.

It was a wonderful weekend with memories to treasure.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the invitations I sent Nancy and Cheryl for this event. I used the new Regency Park Suite of products (paper, ribbon, stamps and dies) accented with the Loose Daisy Embellishments.

Silver Elite Retreat January 2023 invitation - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com
Silver Elite Retreat January 2023 invitation - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The color combination I chose mimicked the Stampin’ Up! floral graphics which you can see on some of the gift items below. I also used my computer to print out the inside invitation and agenda.

Measurements

  • Shaded Spruce Cardstock
    • 5-1/2” x 6″ scored parallel to short side at 4-1/4”
  • Balmy Blue Cardstock
    • 4″ x 5-1/4″ (inside layer)
    • Scrap for die-cutting frame
  • Night of Navy Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting frame
  • Basic White Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting sentiment layer
  • Regency Park Designer Paper
    • 3″ x 5-1/2″
  • Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon
    • 16″

Directions…

  • Add the designer Paper so it’s connected on the front (not the inside) of the Shaded Spruce folded card base.
  • Die-cut both the Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Stamp and die-cut the white sentiment layer. Insert the stamped layer into the Balmy Blue corners. Then layer and adhere (with a slight offset to create a “shadow”) the Balmy Blue to the Night of Navy.
  • Tie on the ribbon with the knot to the right.
  • Add the sentiment piece with Dimensionals.
  • Embellish with the Loose Daisies and a few Rhinestones.
  • And add the Balmy Blue layer to the inside. (I had first printed my invite onto the cardstock and trimmed to size. You’ll need a printer that doesn’t curve the paper much coming through. I own an Epson ET-2750.)

I also made a matching bag tag and a wrap for the recognition block I gave each of them. Basic directions for the wrap can be found here in my 1/9/23 post. The tag is just made of a 3″ x 6″ piece of designer paper, a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Balmy Blue that I stamped and embellished, and a strand each of the navy ribbon and silver twine.

Products I used… See below for a general list of products I used for my card, tag and wrap linked to where you can find them in my online store.

She always does such a great job! Last year she embroidered blankets. And in years past, she has personalized various bags. (Let me know if you have any ideas for me for next year’s personalized gifts.)

Thanks for visiting. I had lots to share. But it was a fun-filled weekend, and I wanted to bring as much of it to you as I could. I hope you enjoyed.

This is actually one of the cards that we are making this weekend at the January 2023 Silver Elite Retreat, a yearly event where I spoil those in my team who hold the title of Silver Elite or higher. (I’ll share some photos soon of our fun.)

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 11″ scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
    • (2) 4″ x 5-1/4″
    • (2) 1″ x 4″
    • Scraps for die-cutting ice cream
  • Soft Suede Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting waffle cone
  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting ice cream
  • Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon
    • (4) 5-1/2″

Directions

  • Die-cut the cone and the ice cream scoops. Then assemble the cone and add some shading by blending on some Soft Suede ink. The ink will allow the embossed areas to stand out more. Tuck and adhere the ice cream scoops into the cone.
  • Stamp the sentiments centered onto the white strips.
  • Emboss one of the white layers with the ‘criss-cross’ die by using the Silicone Craft Sheet. Set up your machine’s sandwich as follows: Base Plate, Die Plate, Silicone Craft Sheet, Basic White Cardstock, die (blade side down against paper), Specialty Plate. After embossing, use the Blending Brush to add a bit of Pool Party ink.
  • Adhere the white sentiment strips (centered) to the ribbons. Then add these strips to the 4″ x 5-1/4″ white layers and wrap and secure the ends of the ribbon to the back side (tuck the waffle cone under the “sweeter” sentiment as you adhere it to the embossed front white layer). Then add these layers to the outside and inside of the card. Use a Dimensional under each of the four corners of the front layer.

Edited on 1/30/23 to add another version of this card that I made at the retreat

I like this one a bit more because the ice cream is more generous. I think the bow on the front adds a nice touch. (It was one of the ribbons I intended on using on the inside.) And the sentiment strips are 4-1/8″ wide instead of 4″.

Key to My Heart Paper Pumpkin Alternates

My first set of alternate January 2023 Key to My Heart Paper Pumpkin projects is ready to share! Hopefully you enjoy what I came up with. My favorite is the pendulum card, but the mini album was fun to make too! The simple idea of interlocking the padlocks might inspire those of you that love the kit cards the way they are, but just want to add a “little something.” Then there is the card with the flap door! (I hope that helps with a variation on that cut out card.) AND… I think moms of little kids will appreciate the idea of doubling the treat containers in the coordinating Heart Boxes add-on.

This love-themed kit contained the supplies shown below to make nine Valentine cards (3 of 3 kinds).

The January 2023 Key to My Heart Paper Pumpkin Kit supplies. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But I like to think outside the box and see what else I can come up with. So here are my instructional videos for what I created.

Watch my videos first by clicking here and here to get to get measurements, directions, and tips (or you can just click on the images below if you are already in my blog post). Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my videos, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations. Then be sure to visit my blog again soon, because I have more that I’ll be sharing on February 3rd. 

Here are the cards the kit instructs how to make. (Click here for a link to Stampin’ Up!’s how-to video to help you assemble these as intended.)

One More Share A Milkshake Center Step Card

Do you do this, too…make a card, and then make several versions of it? You actually saw versions two & three of my Vertical Center Step Fold cards on Wednesday and Thursday this past week. But before I created those I designed this card that I’m sharing with you today.

Another Vertical Center Step Fold Card featuring the Share a Milkshake Stamp Set & Dies by Stampin’ Up!®. You’ll be able to access measurements, instructions & tips, other close-up photos, and links to all the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Feel free to refer back to the how-to video in Wednesday’s or Thursday’s posts for instructions on cutting, scoring, and folding the base of this type of card (and also to peek at the other Vertical Center Step Fold cards that I made if you missed them earlier).

This is the Share a Milkshake Bundle (stamp set and coordinating dies).

Some of my favorite childhood memories involved ice cream…celebrating after school concerts at Farrell’s Restaurant, my dad’s malts, neighborhood visits from the ice cream truck, finding ice cream sandwiches in the freezer on hot summer days, etc. So even though I am now lactose intolerant and can’t have actual ice cream treats anymore, the memories are still a treasure. And this bundle was something I purchased right away.

Today’s card features one of these great desserts topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

Tips:

  • For the two-toned cherry, ink the stamp in Real Red ink. Then ink just the stem in Early Espresso ink. Because the stamp is see-through, you could do this with two ink pads. But if that makes you nervous, you could just use the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker to color the stem on the stamp image before stamping it onto your Basic White scrap.
  • For the image of the glass, ink up the larger of the two images in Pool Party ink. Stamp it onto scrap paper first. Then stamp it onto the Basic White scrap. This will create a little shade of Pool Party. Then just stamp the second image with full ink to get the darker Pool Party color.

  • To add the ribbon, wrap the burlap/crumb cake colored ribbon with a Seal Adhesive on the backside from the front to the back of the Soft Suede strip of cardstock. You will have a little over 3/4″ on each end to wrap to the back. Attach the Soft Suede strip to the bottom front of the card. Then wrap the Real Red Ribbon around the bottom section of the card (you will see this one on the inside of the card), and tie in a knot. Adjust so the knot is centered below the milkshake. Secure the knot in place with a Glue Dot.

So much fun to make, right?!
