This was a new bundle last year when the Main Catalog came out. I have no idea if it will retire this year, but I know for a fact that the bundle discount (10% off) will be gone on May 4th! The Bundle Discounts only last the first year!
I have all the supplies used for all these cards listed here- and there’s also a video I made a few days ago. The free shipping I talk about is no longer available, and the host code isn’t good anymore (check on the right side of my site to see current host code) but everything else in the video is!
St. Patrick’s Day is always fun! This year, even better with Stampin’ Up! free shipping! You have a few hours left!
I made this card quickly yesterday. The hearts were die cut and then scored in the middle, inked up a bit on the score line and outside edges, and then glued to a circle. The stem was a die cut from the Christmas Cardinal dies.
I stamped the sentiment and then die cut it with the Messages dies.
I showed some of my other butterflies in my video making the 2 butterfly cards. I decided today I needed to do something with them!
The two big ones were the big die cut (the one I used as a mask on the cards yesterday). I stamped some of the Art Gallery flowers on them, then used Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party cardstock for the overlay die cuts.
The small butterfly was die cut from the Butterfly Bijou DSP (I showed that on the video, too). I die cut the overlay with White Shimmer cardstock.
The big gold leaf is from the beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Speciality paper- it’s on page 152 of the main catalog.
Once again, I decided to use the Messages die for the sentiment for the front of the card. The sentiment I used is 3 lines long- so I used a Night of Navy Many Marvelous Marker to color just the first line. I stamped it on embossed paper and then die cut it. For the second two lines, I inked up with the marker and stamped it inside the card.
I got the new Butterfly Bouquet collection a few days ago. I loved it but could not come up with an idea. I die cut the big die and left it on one of my tables. Two days ago, I walked into my stamp room, so the negative die paper and came up with an idea!
I was so excited after I finished my first one- it looked like really cool background paper!
Check out my video to see how easy to make these! And look at my table after making the video! A little messy!!
Another simple stamping card! I had so much fun making this- it was easy, about 10 minutes start to finish. I think direct stamping with no punches or dies for the images is fun, nostalgic, and great for new stampers!
Dragonflies can be used for so many cards- happy ones, celebratory, sympathy, birthday, etc.
For this one- I stamped one image in Misty Moonlight and then stamped the top layer with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.
The top two are from the Dandy Garden DSP- they are the exact size of the punch!
I also used the masks on the top left and bottom right. Taped it down and used Versamark ink. I then added silver embossing powder. I have a few cards that I’ve used the masks in different ways, so I’m working on a video to show how to use those!
Simple stamping is great for stamping beginners, or for anyone! I make simple cards quite often- after making ones that take a long time and lots of steps, it’s great to make one that is done in less than 5 minutes!
