Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Thank You Card

Good morning! Today I’m sharing a Thank You card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle. I love this bundle and I’m glad that the stamp set and the Potted Succulents dies are being carried over in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – It is just so versatile!! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card is inspired by the sketch in Fab Friday 211 Challenge Blog. Here is the pretty sketch:

Using a blending brush, I applied some Old Olive, Mint Macaron and Rich Razzleberry ink in splotches on a Pearlescent paper panel. I applied adhesive sheets to the back and cut it with the background die from the Potted Succulents dies from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle. I removed the backing from the die cut Pearlescent paper and adhered it to a Mint Macaron panel. I trimmed a 3″ x 5-1/8″ panel and a 1/2″ x 4″ panel from the layered panel. It’s really hard to see the color because the color is light and the shimmer from the Pearlescent paper diffuses it even more, but it’s really pretty!

I adhered some Mint Macaron wood grained paper from the Subtles DSP pack to the sides of a Mint Macaron 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel, leaving a small border. I adhered the Pearlescent die cut panel in the center and popped the panel on the front of a Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a Basic White panel. I used the Messages die to cut it out. I also cut a Mint Macaron panel with the Tasteful Labels die and adhered the stamped label to the top.

I cut a Vellum panel with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die and adhered the label to the front. I adhered the Vellum to the card front with glue dots hidden behind the label. I love how the design shows through the Vellum card stock!


For the inside of the card, I stamped the succulent bouquet from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a Basic White panel after stamping off twice. I stamped the sentiment full strength in Mint Macaron ink and trimmed the bottom with the strip of Pearlescent and Mint Macaron paper. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is a fun sketch to show off this pretty panel with the Pearlescent die cut on the Mint Macaron card stock. And this panel shows another look that you can achieve with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle with a card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This beautiful bundle lets you easily make trees with a watercolor look because of the two step stamps and the dies let you make different kinds of dimensional trees. 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 4, 2021!

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 tore the top of the Mossy Meadow Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the bottom of the Misty Moonlight sky Beauty of the Earth panel. I stamped the shadow from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship photopolymer stamp set in the new Evening Evergreen ink (This is one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors that will be available on May 4, 2021) and adhered the panel to a Basic White mat. I cut the small tree trunk die from the Soft Suede tree bark paper and adhered it to the panel on the shadow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I stamped a Basic White panel and label strip with the large tree top stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Blushing Bride. I stamped several times to cover the whole panel and strip. I then stamped the small spatter in Polished Pink – another new In Color from the upcoming catalog. I die cut the panel with the large open die from the Beautiful Trees dies in the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle. I adhered the pink tree top to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on stamped strip and cut it out with the long label die. I folded a length of Cinnamon Cider ribbon and adhered it to the card with glue dots and adhered the label on top with dimensionals. I cut two birds with the Beautiful Trees dies from Misty Moonlight and adhered them to the tree with glue dots.

For the inside, I stamped the tree top in Blushing Bride ink on the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree trunk in stamped off Soft Suede ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle is another fantastic tree themed bundle with beautiful stamps, dies and sentiments. It will be available in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog on May 4, 2021. Here’s a picture of the stamp set and dies along with the beautiful Beauty of the Earth designer series paper.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share some pretty cards made with the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle. This is an early release from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog that is available now. And it’s full of six gorgeous butterfly stamps in different sizes with detailed and outline dies for each one! Here are some cards made by the Stampin’ Up! Design team to give you some ideas:

One of the nice things I like about these cards is that they do do a nice job of showing how you can use the large butterfly stamp as background stamp and just ink it up and stamp it once!

The butterflies can be colored using many different techniques and in many different colors. There are outline dies for each butterfly, so you can use it as an embellishment. I love the variety in shapes and sizes!

The background dies are really cool – like this basketweave! And the bricks are neat too!

And finally there are all the detailed dies. This card leaves the little pieces in the watercolored die cuts for an artistic look, but they can be nicely used in conjunction with the stamped images for a variety of looks. And again, I love all the different sizes!

There are simple recipes for making these cards with the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle, and you can get them HERE. And check out the trio of Butterfly Brilliance cards I posted earlier this week here.

Here are close ups of the stamps and dies. Click on the pictures to get the full descriptions and to shop in my Online Store.

Thanks for looking and I hope you consider the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle for your next stamp purchase.

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 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. Click on the picture below to download a printable flyer with all the details and the item numbers for the Butterfly Bouquet celebration beginning on March 2, 2021.

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Video Tutorial

Good Monday Morning! I hope that it’s the start of a wonderful week for you! This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon featuring the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle along with the Well Suited designer series paper. I fell in love with this bundle at first sight. I’ve always liked cards that look like clothes and with lots of guys in my family, I need to make lots of masculine cards. And the suit card that you can make with this bundle is perfect! It makes a beautiful (handsome?) card and it does so very easily! You can find the 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 lined up a panel of the Well Suited grey pinstripe designer series paper on my grid paper and placed the large V die from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle so that it lined up at the 1″ and 3-1/4″ mark on the ruler and secured it with some washiest tape. This gives you a well centered jacket. I ran it through my die cutting machine to cut the jacket. I adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue just around the outside edge, leaving the V open so I could tuck the tie underneath.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited dies, I cut the collar piece from Basic White and the two tie pieces from the Well Suited designer series paper. I cut the knot in a different direction from the long tie and adhered it to the top of the tie with liquid glue. I adhered the collar to the top of the card aligning it even with the top of the card and centered in the opening. I applied the liquid glue only to the top edge so that I could slip the tie under the bottom of the collar.

I applied a little liquid to the tie and slipped it under the jacket and then tucking it under the collar. I slid it into position so it was straight and pressed. I adhered the jacket lapel and the chest pocket with liquid glue and adhered two Basic Gray buttons, one near the top of the V and one at the bottom. I finished the tie with a silver metallic pearl tie tac.

For the inside, I didn’t want to use the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited great Father’s Day sentiment (It’s way too early), so I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the same Well Suited DSP as the tie and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is a wonderful set for making masculine cards. I’m really impressed at how great the suit looks and how easy it was to put together. It’s definitely a bundle you need if you make a lot of masculine cards.

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Thank You Card

Happy Wednesday! Here in Southeast Pennsylvania, the snowing has stopped and the ground is so pretty with all the snow! It’s still cold so it’s a good day to stay in and make cards. Today’s card is a simple thank you card made with a couple of Sale A Bration items – The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart cling stamp set and the Flower and Field designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by die cutting both sides of a Flirty Flamingo panel with the fancy, lacy die from the Ornate Borders dies. I adhered a panel of Flower and Field Sale A Bration designer series paper to the front of the die cut and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Just Jade card base with dimensionals.

I cut out the embossed butterfly from the Fluttering dies using Bumblebee card stock. Isn’t it pretty!! I love the embossed details in the wings! I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Heal Your Heart stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Thick Basic White card stock and cut it out with the third smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the butterfly with glue dots. I made a bow with Just Jade gingham ribbon and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card with two small matte black dots on the butterfly.

For the inside of the card, I adhered another strip of Flower and Field DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I cut another strip of Flirty Flamingo with the lacy border die and adhered it on top of the DSP with tiny dots of liquid glue (I always forget to use my adhesive strips – this would have been perfect). I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set and Flower and Field DSP are both Sale A Bration Level 1 items that are FREE with $50 in purchases (before shipping and taxes). And did you know that if your order total is over $100 you can get them both for FREE! Or you could choose one of the Level 2 items for FREE instead! The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set is full of thoughtful sentiments written in the most beautiful script! The Flower and Field designer series paper has many pretty floral designs that work well with lots of stamps and punches. I love them both!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Kind People Card

Good Morning! Today I have a card made with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle. The front panel is designed to be just a little short so that the inside of the card peeks out the side. And the sentiment is a sweet one that can be used as a general note card, thank you card or just a friendship card – an all occasion card! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed the front and side panels of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre Sale A Bration 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I adhered the large panel to the front of the Rococo Rose card base and the small panel to the right side of the inside of the card. I stamped the large succulent image from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Garden Green on a Basic White panel. I colored it with Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green, Mint Macaron, Rococo Rose and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out another panel from Basic White and adhered it to the back since some of the back will show when the card is open and you don’t want to see the messy back.

I stamped the pot in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends and the Color Lifter, using a blending technique to give it a nice highlight. I stamped the sweet sentiment in Old Olive ink on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. The sentiment dies in this bundle are fabulous!

I adhered the label to the card front and then adhered the pot on top of it. I popped the succulents on top with dimensionals. I brushed clear Wink of Stella over the succulents to give them a subtle sparkle and added three Rococo Rose Butterfly Gems to finish the front.

For the inside panel, I cut the right edge of the Basic White panel with the Peony Dies scalloped edge and adhered it to the inside of the card overlapping the embossed DSP. I stamped the little succulent from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents stamp set in Garden Green on a small Basic White panel and colored it with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I adhered it to the bottom inside corner.

This large succulent stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents is stunning and easily fills up a card front. It’s versatile and looks beautiful with any artistic technique.

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have a fun fold thank you card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Product Medley. You can find the supplies at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the embossed Very Vanilla card stock from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo product medley to a Misty Moonlight panel with liquid Glue. I adhered the card base to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the panel of floral Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo DSP to the front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo stamp set in Misty Moonlight on a strip of Very Vanilla and trimmed the ends with the Banner Pick A Punch. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I cut out two large leaves from Pear Pizzazz and one leaf from Mossy Meadow using the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo leaf dies. I stamped the large basket in Cinnamon Cider ink on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I arranged the leaves on the card front and adhered them to the card with glue dots. I adhered the basket with dimensionals and added an enamel dot to finish the label.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower trio from the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo stamp set in the corners of a Very Vanilla panel with Misty Moonlight ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This fun fold card was pretty easy to make and it was fun to change things up a bit. The Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo product medley has tons of coordinating products and there’s a refill kit too. The product medley includes:

  • 11-piece photopolymer stamp set
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ DSP
  • 6 sheets of Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ dry embossed card stock
  • die cuts with gold foil accents 
  • 10 yards of Night of Navy ribbon
  • 10 yards of Very Vanilla/gold ribbon 
  • paper flowers, 20 each in 2 sizes; 
  • 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies

Like other kits, the product medley has die cuts with gold foil accents and coordinating embellishments to make your cards pretty. But unlike other kits, the product medley has full size DSP packs, ribbons, stamps & dies! And there are no pre-made card instructions, so you can really unleash your creativity. And of course, everything is in Stampin’ Up! colors, so you can coordinate with other things in your stampin’ stash!

Use this host code when you order $50 or more and receive a free gift from me!  The gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog or the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.

If your order is over $150, please do not use the host code since you’ll receive your own Host Dollars plus I’ll still send you the free gift!  This host code can be used by anyone, no commitment required.  Let me know if you have any questions.


If you need any stamping supplies, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.  Just click on the Shop Now Button on the right side of the screen to go directly to my Online store or contact me if you have any questions.  Happy Stamping!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
