Butterfly Brilliance – 1 card 3 ways

Today’s cards are all created using the not yet released Butterfly Brilliance Collection by Stampin’ Up!

Customers will be able to order this collection as of March 2nd (the stamp set and dies will be available in the new Annual Catalogue on May 3rd however; the DSP and Specialty paper are only available while supplies last from March 2 – April 30)

The first card I created was designed with a beginner stamper in mind. I used only 2 inks, 3 cardstocks and some glue. And yet the result is stunning.

To step it up a notch, I used essentially the same stamping, however, I stamped the butterfly twice and fussy cut it out. I embellished with twine and rhinestones and attached most pieces with my favourite adhesive – Dimensionals!!

Aside from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection, here are the supplies used to make this card. You can order the Butterfly Collection March 2nd, or add it to your starter kit today (**until Feb 28th you’ll even get 5 free DSP packs in addition to all the other perks of the kit**).


Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Thick Cardstock
$11.25
Magenta Madness 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock
$12.00
Blushing Bride 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock
$12.00

Whisper White Medium Envelopes
$10.25
Paper Snips
$13.50
Paper Trimmer
$34.00

For my 3rd version of this card I took it up a few notches for the avid stamper. I used the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to add detail to the Specialty Paper, cut a label out of DSP, and to cut the intricate butterfly. Of course, I topped it all off with a dash of Wink of Stella.

If you want to see the whole process in action you can view my video below ( please subscribe to my You Tube channel if you enjoy these videos – then you’ll never miss one!)

I am hosting a Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Camp with some other talented Canadian Demonstrators. You can see all the details of the camp here: https://stampinup.net/crm/events/91361

Basically if you purchase the Collection from me on March 2 – 6th using the host code: NP2DWBBP , you will automatically be registered for the Stamp Camp. We will be making 8 beautiful cards and there will be 4 Mystery Stamping activities as well.

February 2021 Paper pumpkin – Bouquet of Hope (and an alternative)

This month’s Paper Pumpkin is great for sending some warm thoughts to loved ones. The vellum and gold laser cut paper add a very beautiful touch to the cards. Here is the unboxing video of this set.

The stamp set that comes with the kit is beautiful and coordinates nicely with the Flower and Field DSP in the Sale-a-bration offering.

Here is a quick and simple alternative card I created using the Flower and Field DSP.

If you are interested in getting the Flower and Field DSP that coordinates with this Paper Pumpkin, all you need to do is place a $60 order before Feb 28th. One great way to earn the DSP is to grab a prepaid paper pumpkin subscription.

Dragonfly Garden Mask

Today’s card features the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and coordinating punch. I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks with Blending Brushes to create the background. These masks are similar to the masks and sponge available in the new March Paper Pumpkin.

Live in Canada, don’t have a demonstrator? Contact me to get a catalogue or find out why right now is the best time to join our team.

Here is my card for the Blog Hop. I used the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and dies.

I used some soon to be retiring Terracotta Tile scalloped ribbon and pinched it in a bow with Linen Thread. The Happy Birthday die cut has adhesive sheet on the back to help it stick to the card easily and the vellum stitched circle creates a nice soft focus on the card. Scroll down to see the full product list.

Hey Chick! Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop

This is my first time joining a Craft Collaborations Blog Hop!  This one features the hilarious Hey Birthday Chick Bundle!!  Hop around and see all the amazing cards created by some amazingly talented crafters! 

Here is my fun birthday card. The dies make using this set so simple – and I even remembered to use adhesive sheets on the back of the Basic White cardstock before I cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment.

To create the colourful background, I used strips of paper adhered to a Window Sheet and then die cut the whole layer with a circle. A great way to use up paper scraps!

Hey Birthday Chick!

You may have noticed the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set in the Jan – June Mini (p. 52) and thought Gee that’s fun! You may have even thought it looked familiar – because it is. During Sale-a-bration 2017 a set called Hey Chick was the most popular stamp set, so Stampin’ Up! created this new birthday version. Even better, they are bringing back Hey Chick and they are offering coordinating dies to go with both sets!! These two bundles are only available from Feb 2nd – June 30th.

The advantage to ordering the bundles is that you save 10% and you can earn FREE sale-a-bration items with every $60 order.

I loved this stamp set the first time around – so I am THRILLED to have more pieces to play with. Here is the card I created today. We did a little bit of masking and used the amazing Blending Brushes.

To see more samples using these bundles – follow my facebook page – I’ll be posting cards daily this week.

The video below goes into some details about how I made the card – you may want to layer up the front piece – I got lucky and my Blends did not bleed into the inside of my card. Phew!
