Retiring Stamps I never used and Menagerie Cards

Today I want to show you all the products I purchased from the August – December 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. These are all RETIRING STAMPS I NEVER EVEN USED!! Arg!! Where did the time go? I’ll also make 3 cards with 3 of the stamp sets before they’re gone forever.

Mini Catalog Retiring Stamps I never even used

Why do I have so many products I haven’t used?! I either BUY too many things or don’t STAMP enough? Which is it? I’m leaning towards the latter! haha Either way here I am with a pile of uninked stamps and projects to finish. Now, let’s talk about the Menagerie Mix Up Bundle. There are just too many adorable critters in this set to not have one in your stash. So many different critters for all sorts of occasions. I’ll use that set today in the video and show you 3 NON-Christmas Cards! (I think I’m getting tired of Christmas Cards – are you?) Either way, I was happy to be creating something other than a Christmas Card 😉

NOTE: If you are picking up the Menagerie Mix Up Bundle purchase the stamps and dies separately as you will save more money as the dies are 40% off (the bundle is only 10% off!)

Menagerie Mix Up Cards Instructions

Cutting your paper:

  • I will explain the steps assuming you will make ONE of these cards.
  • Cut a side folding A2 size card from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
  • You will need 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock (5-3/8 X 4-1/8). One for the card front and one for the card insert.
  • One piece of Whisper White Cardstock to stamp the critter on.
  • One piece of scrap Granny Apple Green Cardstock for the sentiment.

Stamping, Coloring, Splatter & Die Cutting:

Embellishments & Ribbon:

  • Punch a circle that will contrast the color of your tag using a 3/4″ inch circle punch. Fold it in half and glue it in the center of the tag covering the hole. You can use a hole punch to make another hole afterward.
  • Thread Yellow Gingham Ribbon and some of the beige ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Combo through the hole you punched in the tag. Then tie them all together with Linen Thread. You can curl the tails of the Linen Thread with a Bone Folder (the same way you curl ribbon with scissors).
  • Snip the wreath so that part of it shows on the front of the tag then hooks around the back of the tag.
  • Place a few of your favorite sequins on the card front. I opted to use some misc Non-Stampin’ Up! sequins therefore I cannot link them for you.
