Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday Shines Again

It’s interesting how we get on a roll of using a particular stamp set and sometimes it’s hard to do something else šŸ™‚ That’s the case with the Butterfly Brilliance bundle ~ it’s hard to stop playing with it… Today’s card was inspired by one I posted a few days ago. My key colors were So Saffron, Smoky Slate & Basic White – and layers.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday.1

This card really pops for me; I really appreciate the contrast. The Butterfly Brilliance is stamped full strength in Smoky Slate ink on a Basic White panel. The swallowtail is stamped in Memento Black ink on another piece of Basic Whtie, colored with So Saffron Blends and dark Smoky Slate Blends, die cut with the Brillinat Wings Dies, put on dimensionals and added to the card front panel. I adhered this with liquid glue to a Smoky Slate piece slightly larger, wrapped Bumblebee Gingham ribbon around and tacked it in place with Seal+, then added this to a So Saffron Card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink on a Basic White scrap using the Best Year stamp set then punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. I punched another from So Saffron card stock and added it to the sentiment banner with dimensionals. I put this in place over the ribbon with liquid glue. I added three Genial Gems for a bit of bling ~ and the card front was complete.

For the inside, I stamped the Swallowtail in an upside down position in stamped off Memento ink (Butterfly Brilliance stamp set) then stamped the sentiment in full strength Memento ink from the Best Year stamp set. I love these fonts! I adhered the Basic White panel to a slightly larger Smoky Slatge with liquid glue then to the inside of the card base. Voila!

For the envelope I added Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trimmed to fit. I stamped one of the smaller butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Smoky Slate both on the envelope flap and on the front of the envelope. Done, Done! Love this card – so soft and gorgeous – and as I said, these fonts are wonderful. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

It is Sunday, May 30…. do you have big plans this Memorial Day weekend? We live on the East Coast, the Jersey shore as a matter of fact and this is always a big weekend. Unfortunately, we have had storms since Friday evening and that keeps folks from any water activities. But you know what ~ it doesn’t keep folks from getting together! Enjoy the time celebrating and remembering the sacrifices others have made for our freedoms. Thank you to our military personnel and their families!!! Bless you for your service.

Today’s card is a birthday card made with the fabulous Butterfly Brilliance bundle. This is a large stamp with all these gorgeous butterflies. I have chosen to use Pale Papaya card stock – new In Color for 2021-2023 – as the card base, but you could easily use Basic White or other light colors. Let’s take a look…

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

Using Smoky Slate,I stamped off once, then stamped on thePale Papaya card stock panel. Using Memento Black ink, I stamped another butterfly on a Pale Papaya piece and colored it with Stampin’ Blends Pale Papaya and Dark Smoky Slate. And while it doesn’t show in the photo, I covered the body and the tips of the wings in Wink of Stella, the die cut it once thoroughly dry. I mounted it on dimensionals and attached it over the same butterfly. For the sentiment banner I wanted something that had curvy lines, nothing too straight or squared off, as the butterflies have this softness of shape to them. I pulled out my Many Messages bundle (includes Messages Dies) and inked the specific sentiment in Memento ink and stamped it on another Pale Papaya scrap and die cut it. This, too, is mounted to the front panel on dimensionals and has a single Genial Gem. I adhered this panel to the Pale Papaya card base with liquid glue and the card front was complete.

Butterfly Brilliance Birthday, inside

For the inside, I used a smaller butterfly from the same stamp set and stamped it in Smoky Slate, first generation. The sentiment is from the Best Year stamp set and is stamped in Memento Black ink. I added more Genial Gems around the sentiment. This basic White panel was adhered directly to the inside of the card with liquid glue and wow – done!

For the envelope Used the same smaller butterfly to stamp the flap and the front of the card in Smoky Slate ink.

Let’s talk about this Butterfly Brilliance bundle for just a moment. I have cut my butterflies apart ~ and my dies ~ so that I can easily use just one. I also have a second set that allows me to stamp the full stamp and die cut all the butterflies together. So, just sayin’… want you to know how I made this work for me. Card Cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Double Fold

Helloooo. Did you have fun shopping with Stampin’ Up! during FREE SHIPPING day? I certainly did :O) Today’s card is all about Spring – and I love the color combination. It uses items from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack & other items as well. Shall we take a peek? Just so ya know, I haven’t done this fold before. It wasn’t tricky or anything – and may be called something else. All right – let’s take a look.

Dandy Garden Double Fold – #1

You can see why I called it a double fold – there are two parts to it. As I mentioned earlier, I used several elements from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack… the circle on which I stamped on the front, the dragonfly, and the starburst yellow paper. The Vellum dragonflies were from a project some time ago – leftovers and saved in the stamp case.

The basic needs:

  • Seaside Spray card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/4 (2)
  • Bumblebee card stock 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/2″ square cut in half on the diagonal and scored on the long side at 1/2″

The how to:

  • Stamp a Basic White panel with Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Memento Black ink. Stamp the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set – also in Memento Black ink. Lightly color the flowers with Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Color the leaves with Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. Adhere three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins .
  • Fold under the scored edge on the 6×6 DSP triangle. Adhere to the top & bottom of the Basic White panel with liquid glue. Trim the ends that overlap.
  • Adhere the starburst panel (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) to Bumblebee card stock with liquid glue. Adhere this to the triangle – at the top only.
  • Stamp the circle (from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack) using the Garden Wishes stamp set and Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Just Jade for the leaves & stems; Mango Melody for the flowers. Put dimensionals on the back of the circle and adhere to the card front, centering. Adhere the laser-cut dragonfly (yep – from the card pack!) with liquid glue along the body. Attache the small vellum dragonflies with a single mini dimensional for each.
  • Adhere this entire panel to the Seaside Spray card base on the front. This completes the first portion of the card.
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #2

The inside:

  • Stamp the sentiment on a Basic White panel in Memento Black ink.
  • Adhere a 1/2 x 4 strip of the 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP near the bottom.
  • Adhere this panel to the inside of the card and voila!
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #3

For the envelope:

  • Adhere a sweet bumblebee sticker from the Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack to the front of the envelope.
  • Adhere a panel of 2019-2021 In Color 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, trim and the card is DONE!
Dandy Garden Double Fold – #4

Below is a product list of items used in today’s project. They come from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog as well as the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog ~ and those products are available now for purchase. You will find them in the product list below. As a reminder… I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’.

Stampin’ Up! New Year’s Card

Wow! Can you believe this is a New Year’s card? It’s not even Thanksgiving yet… but it was asked for, so there it is… Let’s get to it.

New Year Card – #1

This card uses lots of ‘schtuff’ to make it… Foam Adhesive Sheets, Adhesive Sheets, Red Foil Sheets, and more! It starts with the base being a Wonder of The Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack. To that I adhered with Stampin Seal a panel of Red Foil Sheet cut 4 x 3. More steps:

  • Cut one of the cards apart, using the inside of the card to cut panels 2 x 3. It will make at least four panels. I did this as sometimes the whites don’t exactly match and of course it will if it’s cut from the same source!
  • Using the Playful Alphabet Dies, die cut the word Happy from Black Glitter Paper that has been backed with Foam Adhesive Sheet. Mine was 1″ x 3 1/4″.
  • Die cut the fun banner using Happy Dies and Artistry Blooms DSP that has Adhesive Sheet adhered to it. (This is a different adhesive than the Foam Adhesive Sheet ~ this will lay flat on the paper and not be raised.)
  • Die cut the balloon tail from the same Artistry Blooms DSP with Adhesive Sheet adhered to it ~ again using Happy Dies.
  • Die cut the ballon using the same Happy Dies ~ this time using Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP (new in the Sale-A-Bration catalog). This also has Foam Adhesive Sheet added to it.
  • Die cut the super – uber cute bow from Green Foil Sheet and the Happy Dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink on a scrap of the Artistry Blooms DSP and cut with the Classic Label Punch. I separated mine, but you wouldn’t have to. The sentiment comes from the A Wish for Everything stamp set.

Now all the little pieces are cut out ~ let put it together…

  • Cut a panel of Red Foil Sheet 4 x 3 and adhere to the card front of the Wonders of The Season Memories & More card.
  • Remove the backing on the Black Glitter Paper die cut letters and adhere across the center of the 2 x 3 card panel previously cut.
  • Remove the backing on the green banner and adhere at the top of the 2 x 3 card panel.
  • Adhere the white card panel to the Red Foil Sheet panel using Stampin’ Seal.
  • Remove the backing on the balloon tail and adhere to the card front.
  • Remove the backing on the balloon and adhere to the ‘tail’. Cover the balloon with Wink of Stella.
  • Add the super- uber cute Green Foil bows with just a dot of liquid glue.
  • Adhere the sentiment ‘New Year’s Day’ with dimensionals ~ and your card front is done!

For the inside…

New Year Card inside – #2
  • Stamp the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on one of the 2 x 3 white panels previously cut. The sentiment comes from Best Year stamp set. I used this as it fits the card and I really like how the scrolly words coordinate with the scrolls on the card front. šŸ‘ I added a single Elegant Faceted Gem for more sparkle.
  • Adhere the white panel to Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP panel cut 4 x 3 ~ then adhere this to the inside of the card. VOILA!

New Year Card – #3

Fun card, right?! Products for this card may be found below. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, either here on my post or send to my email at TLsBrightSpot@gmail.com.
