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**).

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.

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!

Darling Donkeys – Love You Always Treat Boxes

Valentine’s is approaching and it is always fun to package up the goodies we give in sweet wrapping. Today I am highlighting Stampin’ Up!’s no adhesive Love you Always Treat Boxes (154285 – $12.25cdn for 10 food safe boxes). You can decorate these boxes for any occasion really – this one I gave it a bit of a Valentine feel, but kept the sentiment neutral so it can be used any time of the year.

The size of these boxes is great too. I fit two cookies in this one. A twine combo pack and some chocolate would also fit nicely.

The base of this box is extra sturdy and fits together without adhesives at all. It is easy to assemble – but not exactly obvious how to do it. So the first part of my video below goes over how to assemble the Love You Always Treat Box.

Love of Leaves – 1 card 3 ways

I had a great time this morning creating a simple card and then slowly making it more detailed and interesting.

I truly love all 3 cards ( I am a sucker for a good simple stamping card – the busy mom that I am I NEED fast a beautiful cards to create).

Here are the three levels of creation. From Beginner, to casual crafter, to avid crafter.

2 inks, 2 cardstock and some adhesive – simple as can be!
Same card – but add some sponging and an embellishment.
Final version I added some die cutting and some heat embossing.

I simply adore the Love of Leaves bundle. The stitching is such an easy thing to add to the cards and makes a huge impact on the look of a card. You can see the video of how I created these cards on my FB page.
