Stampin’ Up! More Butterflies

In my last post here I talked about a Butterfly Card Box and that it was a gift for a friend. Today’s post is the rest of the cards to go in the gift box.

These butterfly ‘tops’ are all ones that were on my desk after playing last week and since the box is a butterfly one, I decided to use them. The blue card butterfly top is die cut from Mint Macaron with the underpart cut from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP. The green card butterfly top is die cut from Just Jade with the underside being the same paper from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP. Both of these were adhered to a panel of Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP (part of the freebies during Sale-a-bration) with a Vellum Doily atop it. The doily was adhered with Seal + and the butterfly with liquid glue. With the blue card I took a panel of Basic White card stock and ran it through the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. The blue square panel was adhered with Foam Adhesive cut smaller so it doesn’t show. The thank you sentiment is one die cut using the Many Messages bundle, which cuts several sentiments at once. I adhered it to a slightly larger piece of the same Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP, put a dimensional under the bottom half and a dab of liquid glue under the half and added it to the card. to finalize the front of the blue card I added 3 Iridescent Pearls.

Back to the green card, I adhered the green square to a Basic White square cut a bit larger and since it was backed with something stronger, I added dimensionals to it. This square was added to a Basic White panel run through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder that also had white twine double wrapped around it. The twine is from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack and is quite fine. The layers then were: card base, Basic White panel run through the embossing folder, then the layers of the green square panel with the butterfly. To complete this card front I again added three Iridescent Pearls.

With two card fronts done, I then created the third card front. This begins with a card base of So Saffron with a layer of Basic White card stock run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered with liquid glue. I then die cut a panel with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from the Flower & Field DSP (another FREE item during Sale-a-bration). I had measured this fairly carefully so I would have a border piece left over. The solid rectangle got Foam Adhesive adhered to the back and centered on the card front. The border was turned over to the other side and adhered with liquid glue. I like how it provides a nice contrast and brings in the yellow of the butterfly. The butterfly is again two layers: the solid piece is die cut from Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP that has variations of color shown on the envelope flap; the top is Basic Black with areas covered in Wink of Stella (which does not show in this photo!). The two butterfly pieces were adhered together with liquid glue and added to the rectangular panel with liquid glue. The sentiment panel is again from the Many Messages bundle, stamped originally in Memento Black ink, and adhere with liquid glue to a strip of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and ends punched with the Banners Pick a punch. I put dimesnionals at the edges of the rectangular panels, a bit of liquid glue to the sentiment banner and adhered it to the card front. Three Iredescent Pearls were added to complete this third card front.

Now for the insides and the envelopes…

For the two card insides on the left: stamp the butterfly in Basic Gray stamped off once onto basic White panel; stamp the filler for the butterfly in stamped-off Mint Macaron ink. This image comes from the A Touch of Ink stamp set – another FREE item during Sale-a-bration! For the third card, I used the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set (new and available to customers Mar 3) in Basic Gray ink. I had covered this one butterfly with ink using a sponge dauber and my Stamparatus. It worked perfectly. I then used my Blending Brushes to cover the Basic White panel with So Saffron ink. This was adhered to the inside of the So Saffron card and all three cards were complete. :O)

OK, I didn’t quite get these in the right order, but you can see them well at least. The blue… Oh So Ombrfe 6×6 DSP and stamped with the A Touch of Ink stamp set in several places using Basic Gray ink; the green… Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP and stamped with A Touch of Ink stamp set and Basic Gray ink; and the final envelope flap is covered in Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP – and all three are done! Voila! I love this set of cards, all using butterflies yet each unique and different. I hope my friend will like them too.

Stampin’ Up! Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials

Today is President’s Day! What does that mean to you? What I think of is Abraham Lincoln… and hubby just finished reading a book titled Abe that was really good. He was an amazing man and an incredible president. If you like history – this is an excellent read. I have my hands wrapped around the book Eleanor right now and keep learning how incredible she was as a First Lady of our country. These thingsd have nothing to do with today’s card, so maybe I should just get on with it…

Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials – #1

Can you see in the photo the embossing on the card front? I’ve used two folders, one for the DSP and another for the Basic White card stock. They come together and are called Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. Here’s better photo to share the delicasy of these two.

Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials – #2

I think you can see the embossing better, right? So delicate and beautiful. And here’s how I put this card together…

  • Emboss the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP with the leaf portion of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder set.
  • Emboss the Basic White panel with the floral, butterfly and leaf portion of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder set.
  • Adhere the DSP strip to the Basic White panel with liquid glue.
  • Add the Just Jade 20-22 In Color Ribbon by wrapping to the back and hold in place with Stampin Seal
  • Die cut the flower from Hydrangea Hill DSP and the petals for the flower in Basic White card stock. Adhere the flower together with liquid glue and a mini dimensional. Add an Opal Rounds to the center. (Truth be told… this flower was sitting on my desk from a previous project and I liked the color contrasts of the green and pink.😊)
  • Adhere the flower to the card front with a dimensional.
  • Also sitting on my desk was this butterfly die cut with the Butterfly Dies (new product! this will be available in the 2021 Annual Catalog.) I adhered this butterfly with dimensionals as well.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Memento Black ink on Basic White card stock and die cut with the Potted Succulents Dies. The sentiment comes from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I attached the sentiment to the card front with dimensionals and trimmed the end.
  • Adhere this panel to another layer of Basic White card stock for strength then to the Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals ~ and your card front is done!
Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials – #3

For the inside… I wanted to carry both the green and pink to the inside so adhered a strip of the same Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP (new product available soon to customers!) to the right side of the Basic White panel. I die cut another flower with the Perennial Petals Dies, this time from the Paper Blooms DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order). I also die cut petals from Basic White card stock and a scrap I had on my desk of…. for the center of the flower. All were adhered together with liquid glue and another Opal Rounds was added as well. This was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue. This Basic White card stock panel was adhered to a Mint Macaron piece then to the inside of the card – all with liquid glue. and the inside was complete!

Sent with Love, Pretty Perennials – #4

For the envelope… I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. For the front of the envelope, I stamped the flower background from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Roccco Rose ink stamped off once, then the detail flower stamp in full strength Rococo Rose ink – and the card was finis!

This card is so versatile – it could easily be a sympathy card or birthday or simply thinking of you, depending on if you stamped something special inside. I like that it is cheery and bright too.

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkeys

Hello. It’s snow again today and it’s coming down in big flakes and sticking! We may get as much as 4-5″ and interestingly, the northern part of the state is to get LESS! Imagine… todays card… features the Darling Donkeys stamp set and Well Suited DSP. I totally cased a layout and some ideas from another demonstrator but changed up several other parts of the card.

Darling Donkeys – #1

I am smitten with these donkeys ~ maybe because they are somewhat sassy-looking and fun-loving. The stamp set is FREE during Sale-a-bration when you purchase $50 worth of product ~ and Sale-a-bration ends Feb 28. Let’s talk through how I created this card.

  • The plaid pattern of this Well-Suited DSP is layered on a a panel of Basic White with liquid glue, then onto the Pacific Point card base with liquid glue as well.
  • The dotted pattern of this DSP was given additional color with a Poppy Parade Blends by adding dots of color where the white dots were. It was then layered on a panel of Basic White, after punching one end with the Tag Topper Punch. It was adhered to the card front with liquid glue.
  • The Poppy Parade piece of the Well Suited DSP was adhered to a panel of Basic White then adhered to the card front… dimensionals on the right side of the strip only.
  • Die cut a circle with the largest of the Stitched Shapes Dies – out of Basic White card stock. Stamp the donkey in Saddle Brown Memento ink then the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and the fun little sparklers in Poppy Parade ink. (It might look better if the donkey were stamped in Memento Black ink!) I added the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the center of each sparkler cluster. This was attached to the card front with dimensionals only on the left side of the circle – to balance the heights of the card stocks.
  • Finally I stamped another donky on a scrap of Basic White – again in the Saddle Brown (this topo would look better in Memento Black ink!). I colored this donkey with Smoky Slate Belnds and added some Poppy Parade Blends to the feet and hair. This donkey was added with dimensionals – and the card front was complete.
Darling Donkeys – #2
  • On the inside I used Light Smoky Slate to color a space, then stamped the sentiment from Darling Donkeys stamp set in Night of Navy ink.
  • I stamped the donkey in Memento Black ink and colored the rose with Poppy Parade Blends and Granny Apple Green Blends.
  • This was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue and the card was done!
Darling Donkeys – #3

For the envelope, I took the plaid of the Well Suited DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap, trimmed to fit. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and the set was done and ready for a receiver :O)

Darling Donkeys – #4

I think this card will put a smile on someone’s face when they receive it. How could they not? The faces are just too cute! Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! True Love & Happy

It is Super Bowl weekend! Woohoo! And what are YOU doing during Super Bowl? I’ll probably color something while watching the game – it’s the perfect time. Or fussy cut… but that’s not my preference. Speaking of coloring, todays card uses the Stampin Blends and it gives a bolder look than the card of yesterday with the pencils. I used another one of the True Love DSP papers too. Let’s take a look…

True Love Happy #1

This card incorporates the Pretty Perennials stamp set in the sentiments on the card front and the word ‘happy’ just pops! I colored just the smallest of the flowers using both the Light & Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends – just enough to tie in the Daffodil Delight card stock it sits on and the Ruched Ribbon, also in Daffodil Delight.

I stamped the word ‘happy’ in VersaMark ink on a piece of Basic Black card stock after using the embossing buddy to clear it of any static, then sprinkled White embossing powder over the ink and heat set it. Once it cooled a bit I fussy cut the word. I then adhered it to a piece of Basic White card stock and fussy cut around it again, giving it a white border. I stamped the word ‘birthday’ also from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Memento Black ink on a Basic White scrap and punched it with the Classic Label Punch. After deciding where I wanted to place the larger word, I ran a strip of Stampin’ Seal across and wove the Ruched Ribbon to just the way I wanted it, and the Stampin Seal held it nicely in place. I put dimensionals on both sentiments, adhering the larger word first, then the ‘birthday just over the ends, also on dimensionals. I added three 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Bumblebee for the final touch.

The True Love DSP panel was adhered to Daffodil Delight card stock, put on dimensionals then added to the Thick Basic White card base and the card front was complete.

True Love Happy #2

For the inside I added a 3/4″ strip of the same True Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel after coloring with the Daffodil Delight Stampin blends. This panel was adhered to a Daffodil Delight panel with liquid glue then to inside of the card base, also with liquid glue – and the card was done. Easy peasy…

True Love Happy #3

For the envelope I did no coloring, just added a strip of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap and that’s it. A bright, cheery card ready to send to someone special.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials

Hello again. It’s 17degrees this morning…. now these kind of temps will kill lots of germs! OK, enuf of that… today’s card… I love the dies in this bundle! The leaves and the decorative dies for the flowers are just so delicate and lovely. Here’s a close-up… are these stunning or what! They do the work for us. 🙂

Pretty Perennials bundle – #1

One of the nice parts about this bundle is all the dies can be run through the Mini Cut & Emboss machine. It’s another bonus. Yesterday was the first I had played with this set and all I did was work the dies. I did almost no stamping at all – so obviously there’s still lots for me to do with this set – yay!

Pretty Perennials bundle – #2

I had at hand the Hydrangea Hill DSP and chose to die cut the flower heads and the leaves from the papers, then the delicate overlay of the flowers is Basic White card stock. And the word ‘happy’ has a really fun script. More detail…

  • Die cut the flower heads and the large leaf image from Hydrangea Hill DSP using the Perennial Petals Dies
  • Die cut the delicate overlay for the flowers in Basic White card stock, also using the Perennial Petals Dies. Adhere these to the appropriate flower with just a dot of liquid glue in the center
  • Cut a strip of Hydrangea Hill DSP 1 1/4 x 4. Adhere the strip with liquid glue to the Basic White panel, about 1/2″ from bottom
  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp the word ‘happy’ in Memento Black ink. This comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set. Using the Stamparatus allows for perfect placement if you need to re-stamp. I use it a lot!
  • Stamp the rest of the sentiment in Rococco Rose ink. This too, comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set.
  • Adhere the leaf die with liquid glue, allowing the end of the stem to remain loose.
  • Stamp the sweet open flower in Rococo Rose ink – yep, from the Pretty Perennials stamp set
  • Adhere the two flower heads with liquid glue
  • Add these stunning Pastel Pearls to the centers of each flower. These are larger than our regular pearls and have four shades in the package: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray. They are part of the suite of products from Hydrangea Hill collection – found on pg 19 in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini catalog.
  • Adhere the completed panel to Rococo Rose card stock with liquid glue. Add dimensionals to the back of the Rococco Rose and adhere to a Thick Basic White card base. Card front is complete!

Unfortunately I did not take photos of the inside of the card – and it is already out the door! But here’s what I did… use your imagination 🙂 silly me.

  • Die cut the group of stems in the Perennial Petals Dies from a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP. I used the same DSP for the larger leaf on the front.
  • Using this same set of dies, die cut the group of small flower heads from the same blue Hydrangea Hill DSP as the blue flower on the card front. Adhere both with liquid glue to the lower left corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.
  • Adhere this panel to another of Rococo Rose, then into the inside of the card. and voila!
Pretty Perennials bundle – #3

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom

Hello! How is everyone today? It’s Thursday and going to be very windy and cold. When we walk the dog we will need to be quite bundled – and may even put the doggy coat on our Springer.He isn’t used to it as the winter has been extremely mild, but he seems to like it. We’ll decide when it becomes daylight :O)

Todays card was made with the extra fun NEW Pierced Bloom Dies that is bundled with the In Blooms stamp set. It also allowed me to die cut flowers from the FREE with a $50 purchase Paper Blooms DSP. Of course, that FREE is only during Sale-a-bration which goes through the end of February. Just sayin ‘… The card ~

In Bloom #1

Every single flower and leaf was die cut from the Paper Blooms DSP. Isn’t that cool? The bow is as well. I’ve taken several close-ups so you can see what these dies do – they make these awesome lines, like stitching. I simply kept die cutting flowers and leaves and made a fun pile of them, using what I wanted for this card. I have a few left to play with again. What do I do with the extras? Mostly they go in a small bag and get put in either the stamp set or in with the dies – depends. I like having extras handy. Sometimes they sit in a small container on my desk waiting for inspiration. But the card… all of these were adhered to a Basic White panel . Since there were so many flowers on the panel, I adhered another layer of the Basic White card stock for added strength. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to a Night of Navy card base.

Can you see all the texture these dies add, making these almost ‘real’! And the bow – well, love that bow – so delicate. I’ve die cut two and layered them atop one another, just off-center a bit. I’ve also added several Iridescent Pearls. And the label is from this die set as well. It’s wonderful! The sentiment on the label comes from Tasteful Touches stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I’ve die cut two labels – Basic White and Night of Navy card stocks and layered them together with liquid glue. They sit on dimensionals as does the bow. Everything else is adhered with liquid glue.

Let’s take a look at the inside of the card.

In Bloom – card inside

The sentiment comes from the In Bloom stamp set and is stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. The flowers are die cut from the Paper Blooms DSP and adhered with liquid glue. The panel was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

What do you think – isn’t this a fun card? A friend of ours has a birthday tomorrow and I will hand deliver this since she is local – yep, masked and probably just texting her to say it’s in her mailbox so we don’t come in contact. Her family is health compromised and have to be super careful.

Stampin’ Up! Hello, A Touch of Ink

Hi there! Today’s card features a gorgeous butterfly from the A Touch of Ink stamp set, available during Sale-a-bration with a $100 order. Also part of today’s card is the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order. So what are you waiting for? 😏 Let’s take a peek at the card…

Hello, A Touch of ink, #1

So let me tell you – I love butterflies ~ and I have stamped on Vellum before, but, when stamping on vellum, one MUST remember to heat set the ink! Guess who forgot that… you betcha, it was me… so, let’s do a step by step…

  • Stamp on vellum using Memento black ink. HEAT SET on low setting of your heating tool. Allow to cool.
  • While that is cooling, pull your supplies together:
    • Bermuda Bay card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 + 2 3/4″ square
    • Basic White – (2) 4 x 5 1/4 + 2 3/4″ sq
    • Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP 3 3/4 x 5 + 2 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap
    • Basic Black scrap 3/4 x about 1 1/2
    • Sentiment banner: this was already on my table from stamping a whole lot of sentiments from the Many Messages stamp set and die cutting with the coordinating Messages Dies.
    • Banner Pick a Punch
    • Stampin Blends: Lt Misty Moonlight, Dk Seaside Spray, Lt Bermuda Bay, Dk Mango Melody ~ all for the butterfly
  • Now the stamped vellum piece is cool – let’s color… TURN VELLUM OVER TO BACK SIDE. Color the butterfly with the various blends mentioned above. Allow to dry. You could heat set again, on the low setting.
  • Adhere this vellum panel to the white square using Stampin Seal. I used the seal only in colored areas, so it doesn’t show through.
  • Adhere this to the Bermuda Bay square, off-setting it. I didn’t want it to look like a picture frame – that’s why it’s off-set. Set aside
  • Adhere the DSP panel to the Basic White piece, then to the card base – all with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the butterfly panel with dimensionals.
  • Crop one end of the Basic Black strip with the Banner pick a Punch. Adhere to the card front with liquid glue
  • Adhere this very tiny sentiment with mini dimensionals and your card front is done!
Hello, A Touch of Ink, inside – #2

Isn’t this a fun flower? The butterfly is headed for it to take the nectar from the center… Stamp the flower in Memento Black ink on the Basic White panel. Stamp the color for the flower with stamped off Daffodil Delight. This is such a cool ‘filler’ stamp. It doesn’t have to line up perfectly; it’s like a shadow kind of stamp. Now, adhere this white panel to the inside of the card and the card is done!!! Super easy and rather elegant.

For the envelope I adhered a left-over piece of the Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed it to fit. Yep, liquid glue. For the front of the card I stamped a sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Memento Black ink and the entire project was ready to send – a friendly note of support or care to someone struggling will be written inside. Want this set? I can help you 👍 😁

Stampin’ Up! Coordinating Annual Catalog Product with Jan-Jun Mini Catalog

Hello again… it’s snowing… ever so slightly. We are just on the edge – and I confess, I like snow. So for me, let’s have some!

Today is Inauguration Day – and we are just a bit anxious about it… violence is just so non-sensical and unnecessary. Our prayer today is for peace, not only in Washington, but in our entire country – as well as the world. Regardless of your politics, please pray for peace.

Today’s card is extra fun – a card on a card, using a new stamp set called Suite Sampler. It is a HOST reward set and may be found on pg 88 in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. Feel free to contact me to see how you may get this set! (LOVE this dragonfly!) I have paired this with one from the Annual Catalog called Sending Sunshine, for the sentiments. Here’s a photo…
