Nothing's Better Than Saturday Night Facebook Live August 1st, 2020

Tonight on my Facebook Live I featured the Nothing's Better Than Stamp set and dies! The set was designed by $1 Million achiever Connie Stewart and I have followed her for years and this set definitely fits her!!! I do three cards on my Live, a Beginner Stamper card, a Casual Stamper card and an Avid Stamper Card.

For the beginner stamper card I use only paper, ink and stamps!  I featured the coffee cups in this cute stamp set.  I began by cutting a card base at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" in Flirty Flamingo.  My layer is Coastal Cabana and is cut at 4"x 5 1/4".  My Whisper White layer that is stamped on is 3 3/4" x 5".  The ink colors I used are Memento Tuxedo Black, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake.  For the crumb cake I did stamp off one time before stamping the steam.  The inside layer of Whisper White is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" as well.  Only thing I added was Wink of Stella to the coffee cups to make them SPARKLE!!!

For the casual stamper card I added a punch and some Designer Series Paper (DSP) to step it up a notch!  My card base is Bermuda Bay and it cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My DSP is Magenta Madness from the 2020-2022 In-Colors DSP pack and is cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  You need a scrap of both Bermuda Bay and Whisper White to punch out the 2 1/4" circle punch. I then just off-centered them on each other once I stamped the chocolates on the white circle.  I also used a 1/4" x 4" strip of Whisper White to stamp my sentiment and a 4" x 5 1/4" piece for the inside of the card.  Ink pads I used were Magenta Madness and Bermuda Bay to stamp the stars, and Early Espresso and Soft Suede  for the chocolates.  It is simple yet a step up from beginner stamping. 

For the avid stamper card, I incorporated the dies that go with this Stamp set that are called Love You More Than dies.  I also used the 2nd and 3rd largest Stitched Nested Label Dies as well.  My card base for this card is Coastal Cabana cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  My basic black layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and my Shimmery Whisper White layer is cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" and then sponged with Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo.  I also needed scraps of basic black and shimmery whisper white for the label dies and the cocktails glasses and cocktails die!  I used the Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo sponged to cut out the Cocktails die and used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody for the cocktail glasses.  I popped up the stitched nested label black die on the white sponged background and also popped up the drinks.  I added some basic rhinestones and wink of stella to finish it off.
