Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This gorgeous bundle is really versatile and fun to play with. I also use some new In Colors – Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Note that all of the new In Colors and products will be available when the new 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog goes live on May 5, 2021! Yay!!

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I adhered a panel of new Pansy Petals designer series paper to the front of a Fresh Freesia (one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors) card base. I die cut the pansy flower pieces from Fresh Freesia, Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss card stock using the Pansy dies from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle. I cut one of everything, but two of the smaller single petals and coordinating trim. I cut the flower stem from Soft Succulent (a new 2021-2023 In Color) and the leaves from Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen (another new 2021-2023 In Color) card stock.

I adhered the petal trim pieces for the pansy to the main petals with liquid glue and used mini glue dots to adhere the Daffodil Delight center and the two back petal to the large front petal. I used glue dots to adhere the bud layers and adhere the bud to the stem. I used liquid glue to adhere the Evening Evergreen detailed die cut leaves to the Soft Succulent leaves. I cut a scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies (available May 5, 2021) from Basic White card stock and adhered the stem and bud with a glue dot to the die cut panel. I adhered the leaves to the bottom and popped the pansy flower on with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a strip of Soft Succulent card stock and trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and popped on the pansy panel with dimensionals. I finished with a gold bumblebee trinket (available May 5, 2021).

For the inside, I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with the pretty Pansy Petal DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is really great for making with Spring cards – there are so many pansies out and about these days! I can’t wait until it’s available on May 5, 2021 so everyone can have fun playing with this set. Below I have pictured my card, the stamp set, dies, Pansy Petals designer series paper and sweet bumblebee trinkets.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Card Trio

Good Morning! I had a very busy stamping weekend because we had big virtual quarterly team meeting where we always have projects to work on! This weekend our projects used the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle, each using the bundle in a different way. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was really excited because these designs show the versatility of the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle by using different techniques! I used the sentiments from the So Sentimental cling stamp set and the Tasteful Labels dies for my labels. Thanks to our talented leaders Amy Koenders, Mary Deatherage and Jaimie Babarczy for the beautiful designs!

The first card uses the big butterfly in the Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Butterflies cling stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut out with the corresponding die and colored with So Saffron, Mango Melody and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. The In Good Taste wood grained DSP is stamped with other butterflies in the set in Sahara Sand ink and mixed with Basic Black, Bermuda Bay and the Beautiful Butterfly Bijou DSP.

The inside has a Basic White panel, stamped with butterflies in Sahara Sand, just like the card front.

The second project was originally a tag, but I love Tag Cards, so I popped it on a card front. This butterfly is one of the butterflies cut from the Butterfly Bijou DSP, and has a beautiful Vellum overlay! There’s a row of silver metallic pearls running down the butterfly body and the beautiful sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight. The tag is finished with White and Misty Moonlight ribbon, tied with Linen Thread and I popped it on a Just Jade card base covered with more Butterfly Bijou and 2020-2022 In-Color Just Jade DSP.

I stamped more butterflies in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel and trimmed it in a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP.

For the final card, we cut a panel of Butterfly Bijou DSP with the detailed large butterfly die and adhered it to a Basic White mat. Then we cut the same butterfly in Basic Black and adhered it to the opening! You can see the Basic White through the opening and it looks like a black and white butterfly. The sequins are yellow iridescent – I don’t know why they look green, LOL. The sentiment is embossed in white to keep with the black and white look.

Here’s the Butterfly Bijou DSP butterfly die cut! It’s the perfect accent for the inside of the card!

Three different butterfly cards and three different techniques using the same set just begin to show how versatile the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle is.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Thank You Card

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a good week and that you are enjoying the pretty Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle that came out yesterday! I am using it today with the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper and several other items from my stash to make a butterfly Thank You card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.

I cut a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die. I used the second largest of the long Stitched Rectangles dies to cut another panel of the flip side of this paper to get a contrasting stripe. Then I finally cut it again with the first die to trim the ends so it would fit. I adhered it to the larger die cut DSP and adhered them both to a Magenta Madness mat. I cut a Magenta Madness panel with the middle sized die from the Hippo and Friends dies and embossed it with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free as a Bird cling stamp set on a small strip of Basic White in Magenta Madness ink and cut it out with the small label die from the Hydrangea dies. I had a Butterfly Bijou DSP butterfly that was cut out with the Brilliant Wings Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle and I used the coordinating detailed die to cut a butterfly from Basic White. I adhered the detailed die cut to the DSP butterfly with glue dots in the center.

With all the card elements prepared, I began to assemble the card. I adhered the DSP panel to the center of a So Saffron card base with dimensionals. I adhered the embossed Magenta Madness panel with liquid glue letting it overlap the edge of the panel. I adhered the label and finished with the butterfly. I added Magenta Madness enamel dots to the butterfly and label and the card front was done!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set in Magenta Madness on the center of a Basic White panel after stamping off 3 times. This gave me a really soft pink butterfly that you can easily write over. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

And YES!! I did it – I cut the big butterfly stamp!! I saw another demonstrator do this and it gave me the courage to do the same. This made it so much easier to just ink up the one butterfly on a regular stamp block and stamp in the center of the panel, especially since I stamped off 3 times!! I’ll eventually cut the other butterflies off too, but I need to take baby steps.

I hope you like today’s card. The Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle is so versatile in that there are so many different ways you can combine the stamps and dies to create beautiful butterfly cards and have fun being creative!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Video Tutorial

Good Morning and Welcome March! Hopefully the worst of Winter is over because I am so ready for Spring, but sadly Sale A Bration is over too. But the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is just around the corner and tomorrow we get an early release of a new bundle from the catalog – the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle! So I made this card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon to give you another sneak peek of this beautiful bundle. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Misty Moonlight and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I embossed the Pool Party Panel with the Meadow Moments embossing folder and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight Mat.

I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Misty Moonlight on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I wrapped a length of Misty Moonlight ribbon around the embossed panel and tied it and made a bow. I positioned the butterfly, ribbon and label on the panel and made adjustments until I was happy with the arrangement. I adhered the label with dimensionals and the butterfly with glue dots and secured the ribbon with a glue dot behind the bow.

I adhered the panel to the front of the card with dimensionals and finished it with three large holiday rhinestones on the butterfly and three small ones on the label.

For the inside, I stamped the butterflies on Basic White using Misty Moonlight ink after stamping off. I carefully positioned the panel on the Stamparatus to get the portion of the butterfly that I wanted for each one, and had to move the hinge to the opposite side so the panel would not be crumpled by the side hinge. After stamping the butterflies, I adhered a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be available tomorrow as an early release of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog as part of the Butterfly Bouquet promotion. This will also include the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper and the Natural Touch specialty paper.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Thank You Card

Happy Friday! Today I have a sneak peek of the new Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle. This bundle is a sneak peek of a new bundle in the upcoming 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog! The new catalog will be available in May, but this new bundle will be available as an early release next month!! You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.

I adhered a strip of the Natural Touch Specialty paper to a panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and adhered them to a Bermuda Bay mat. I used the large Brilliant Wings die that comes in the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle to cut out the butterflies from a panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP. This die cuts out all the butterflies in the center of the panel, and I used the large one on today’s card and tucked the others away for a future card.

I adhered the large butterfly to the panel with glue dots under the center body. I wrapped a length of black and white twine around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the panel on the front of a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three mate black dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I cut out the small butterfly using the Brilliant Wings dies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle and adhered it to the panel next to the sentiment. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP and adhered it to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle has beautiful realistic butterfly images and gorgeous dies that cut out both the solid butterflies and detailed cutout butterflies.
