All Squared Away Simple Square Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
We are half way through March, which means there's only two weeks left of the Savings Are In Bloom promotion featuring the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and select compatible bundles all at a 20% discount! Get the full details below.
Today, I'm sharing three cool cards from last night's All Squared Away LIVE Class. The bundle is one of 13 bundles that are discounted during this promotion.
But first, a couple of very important announcements…
Shipping To Increase On April 1—Stampin' Up! has announced that after more than a decade, they will be increasing the cost of shipping beginning on April 1, 2022. Minimum standard shipping for an order will raise from $6.95 or 10% whichever is greater, to $7.95 or 11% whichever is greater. Prices for expedited shipping will also increase.
Prices Changes With NEW Catalog—Stampin' Up! has also announced that, due to the increased costs to produce many items, we can expect to see some price adjustments in the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Not all products will be affected, but there will be increases in many categories, including, but not limited to: cardstock, Designer Series Paper, ink pads, Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine, kits and select tools, adhesives, embellishments and ribbons. Price changes on products will take affect with the release of the NEW catalog on May 3, 2022.

All Squared Away Simple Square Cards
The All Squared Away Bundle is a little different from most, which makes it so fun! The images in the stamp set consist of four small background stamps with sentiments. The star is definitely the Floral Squares Dies, which create die-cuts that layer over the background squares for pretty focal points. I created three cards with a simple square to show how easy it is to create a simple & sweet card!
Background Basics—The card begins with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Pale Papaya cardstock, scored at the 4-1/4" mark. I embossed a 3" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White with the checks pattern from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder Pack. This is a 2-pack of small folders that are compatible with the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, currently on sale. I layered the embossed piece onto a 3-1/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Polished Pink. After tying some Black Glittered Organdy around the layers into a double-knot, I mounted them onto the card base.

Focal Point—I stamped one of the All Squared Away square backgrounds in Soft Sea Foam ink onto 1-7/8" x 1-7/8" piece of Basic White. I die-cut a Polished Pink die-cut using the Floral Squares dies, popped them up with Mini Dimensionals and adhered the square layers onto the card front with SEAL Adhesive.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped an All Squared Away sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock and mounted it on the card front, with one corner tucked under the focal point.
Finishing Touches—I colored three Basic Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blends Marker and added it around the sentiment with one medium size gem in the center of the flower. So sparkly and sweet!

Two Cool—I created another card that is nearly identical to the first card, this time simply swapping out the card base with Bermuda Bay cardstock. I changed the sentiment, but stamped it onto the same color, Soft Sea Foam.

Three Cool—For the final version, I started with a Granny Apple Green card base. The Basic White background is embossed with the dots texture this time and orientation is horizontal.

Focal Point—I stamped the square background in Granny Apple Green to match the card base. This time, I cut a Bermuda Bay Floral Square and added some Polished Pink flowers over the top with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the sentiment onto Pool Party for this one. So lovely!
