I had a fabulous time at OnStage in Anaheim earlier this month! One of the perks of going this Stampin’ Up! demo event was that participants have a chance to pre-pre-order (PPP or Purchase Product Premier) upcoming product early – this time from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and pre-earn from the January 5th – February 28th 2023 Sale-A-Bration. You can watch the unboxing of my PPP goodies on my Facebook page here or on my YouTube channel below.
The By The Bay Suite is one of my favorites from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. I created this lovely card using the By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Seaside Bay Bundle, and the sentiments from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog Paradise Palms stamp set.
Start with a Starry Sky cardstock card base. Cut a Sahara Sand cardstock panel and a By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper. Use a blending brush to lightly add So Saffron ink to the top right of the By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper. Glue the colored By The Bay Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Sahara Sand cardstock panel. Wrap the panels three times with Linen Thread towards the bottom and tie in a small bow towards the center.
Cut a Basic White cardstock sentiment banner. Stamp the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the Basic White cardstock banner closer to the right side. Use paper snips to flag the left side of the sentiment banner. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front on the right side of the bow overlapping the wrapped ribbon.
Die cut two Sahara Sand cardstock grass pieces using both the large & small (one each) dies in the By The Bay dies. Stamp the bird from the By The Bay stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Basic White cardstock. Die cut out the bird with the By The Bay dies. Color the bird with Stampin’ Blends and add Wink of Stella to the bird’s eye and feathers for sparkle. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the bird to the card front on the left of the bow & sentiment banner overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Use glue to tuck & adhere the Sahara Sand cardstock grass pieces on the upper left of the side of the bird. Add Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls to the card front under the sentiment.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cardstock inside panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Paradise Palms stamp set in Starry Sky ink and the shells & sand image from the By The Bay stamp set in Early Espresso ink. Color the shells with Stampin’ Blends. Cut two Sahara Sand cardstock strips and stamp the sand image with Sahara Sand ink on the strips. Then add those strips to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my By The Bay Suite card. You can order the Paradise Palms stamp set in my Online Store and the By The Bay Suite starting January 5th.
