Love It Chop It
I don’t usually show a retired product. I wanted to show you how easy it is to Love It Chop It and make multiple cards really quickly.
Cutting up a full pack of 12 x 12 DSP into card fronts will give you 72 cards. I got 60 cards from this pack as it was partially used. I loved this paper so much that I did struggle to Chop It, but I love the fact that I created 60 cards in a few hours.
Love It Chop It, Working in stages
When you are making multiple cards like this it is best to work in stages. For these cards, I have used the 25 pack of cards you get from Kmart with envelopes to make this even quicker. I cut the cardstock layers first in multiple colours that I had that co-ordinated with the DSP, then I chopped all the DSP (1/8 inch smaller).
Then using scrap white cardstock to cut out the stitched circle (2nd largest) and the stitched rectangle (2nd smallest in the large bundle) and cut 60 of these out. From a piece of 6×6 white cardstock I was getting 2 circles and 3 rectangles so I was able to cut one of each run through which made this part super quick. I then used the layering circles to cut the glitter paper that co-ordinated with this set.
Then it was a matter of stamping, so I would stamp 10 images at a time and then sentiments. Layered these pieces up with dimensionals and added to the cards.
I then added washi tape on the inside of all the cards but forgot to take a photo. Finishing off the cards with some glitter enamel dots that had also retired.
I’m so pleased how quickly these came together and now I have used all the DSP and Washi from this set. The stamps and dies will remain in my stash as I have no intention of getting rid of these anytime soon. I was also excited to use almost all of the retired glitter enamel dots that I lying around too.
Never-ending invites to children’s parties
As you know I have a 4-year-old and he seems to get invited to a birthday party every second weekend. So I am hoping this lot of cards will last for at least the rest of the year. If you are not lucky enough to use up this many cards there are many places that would love to receive donations of cards. Such as Aged Care Homes, Hospitals, Cards for Troops etc.
Unfortunately, all of these products (except the stitched dies) are retired and no longer available for purchase. If you are interested in any new Stampin’Up! products and do not already have a
