We're almost there... card #5 in the Masterboard Class

Hello Stampers and Happy Monday to all!
Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter yesterday!
Today is an exciting day in the world of stamping.   First of all, Stampin'Up! has released the list of discontinued stamps today! Be sure to check your inbox for an email from me,which will have the list attached.  This year is a bit different, so be sure you understand that all discontinued stamps are on a "while supplies last" basis.  In previous years, Stampin'Up! guaranteed that all discontinued stamp sets would be available until the last day of the Stampin'Up! year... May 31st.  This year, that is not happening, so please order anything you'd love to have as soon as possible, because if you wait you could very well be disappointed.

Here's a second exciting announcement from Stampin'Up!

Yes, you read that correctly!  From today (Monday April 21st until Friday April 25th at 10:59 pm our time, shipping is free!! No worries about paying the minimum shipping charge of $6.95 when you place a small order.  You can order several times during this week and there will be no charge!  Your goodies will arrive right at your door via UPS.   To order, go to the "shop" button at the top of my blog or go to my business site at  You can also add Clearance Rack items to your order.  Be sure to order the outgoing In-Color items ( Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse) before they are sold out.  Ink refills in Raspberry Ripple are already gone.  If you aren't comfortable ordering online, please give me a call and I will put your order in for you!

OK, with those details out of the way, let's get to card #5 in our ongoing masterboard class.  For those of you who are sick, sick, sick of this--- please hang in there for one more day!  On Wednesday we'll be finished with the class and we'll be moving on to new territory on Friday.   Here is card #5...

This panel is cut from very bottom of the masterboard sheet and measures 5 1/4 by 2 1/4.
Check out the cutting diagram again to see where this panel is cut...

See it there in the lower-left corner?  
I started out with a half sheet of white card stock folded to make a card base.  On top of that I layered a Crushed Curry panel measuring 5 1/4 by 4.  I stamped this panel all over with the daisy in the Simple Stems set in Crushed Curry.  I then layered the masterboard panel onto a strip of Real Red card stock measuring 5
1/4 by 2 1/2.  Next, I stamped the saying from Really Good Greetings (page 38 of the annual catalog) in Real Red in the bottom right-hand corner of the Crushed Curry panel.  Last, I adhered the stamped panel to the Crushed Curry panel to the white card base.  Quick and easy and bright and sunny... a perfect card for a busy Monday!

I hope that one or two of you are playing along with me!  Once you get into the groove of making cards this way, you'll go back to this method again and again.  It is a great way to create a coordinated set of cards. Thanks so much for stopping in today!  I appreciate you!
