Onto my card! Lately I’m all about making quick and easy cards and this card was definitely easy! Want to know what I used? One of the cards in the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection!
The card I used is one of the larger ones pictured on the right side of my picture above. I cut it down to 3-3/4″ x 5″. It’s layered on a piece of Tangerine Tango measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. The card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White measuring 11″x 4-1/4″.
My sentiment is from the stamp set Window Shopping from the Occasions catalog. It’s embossed onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhered it to my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The cards in this set are meant for your photo albums but they can also be used to make cute cards! Give it a try!
Have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you on Monday with another post!
Stamping Supplies – Below you’ll find a list of the supplies I used to make my card. Click on any of the pictures and you’ll be directed to my Stampin’ Up! online store.
Last week I posted THIS card and I mentioned that I had made a few more using the same basic layout. The same pack of paper, Cupcakes & Carousels, was used to create all of them. Here they are!
This last one is the same as the first one except that I added rhinestones to the butterfly. It seemed a bit naked to me!
On the fourth card, I did some embossing on black paper for the sentiment but with all the others I used a combination of the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. I used Glue Dots that I rolled up into balls and placed them down the center of each butterfly to adhere it to my card front.
If you’d like the measurements that I used, you can refer to the card from last week. Click HERE and scroll down to the bottom of the post. You’ll also see how I cut the DSP so that I had enough for my card front, butterfly and a strip for the inside the card.

I love buying pretty paper but sometimes it sits around and I don’t use it! Has that ever happened to you? The other day I pulled out my Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack and came up with this card! In fact I created several more cards with this paper but I’ll share those next week.
This particular paper comes with 40 sheets that are each 6″ x 6″. The picture below is another design in the stack but I wanted to show you that you can use the entire sheet for the base of your card, the butterfly AND to decorate the inside!

If my card today looks very familiar, it’s because it has many of the same elements of the card I posted yesterday. While the one yesterday had a watercoloring panel behind the flower, this time I did sponging with Stampin’ Sponges, Whisper White cardstock and Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight stamp pads. There’s a definite learning curve, at least for me, with the sponging technique. I love the look but wasn’t happy AT ALL with what I created below. But you know what? I think it looks great behind the flower! Until then, I will keep on trying this technique until I’m great at it!
The ribbon I used is from the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. It’s a Sale-A-Bration freebie. You get 2 rolls, silver and gold, and it’s gorgeous in person as it has beautiful gold and silver accents woven in. Place a $50 order, before shipping and handling, and you can choose this ribbon as your free gift!
The sentiment is from the stamp set Window Shopping in the Occasions catalog and it’s stamped using Memento Ink. I tried to center it on my card but it seemed off a bit so I thought the rhinestones might distract from that. Did it work??
All of the supplies I used are listed below. Please note that I did NOT use the Framelits with the Window Shopping stamp set but it is part of a bundle and a 10% discount. I’m noting it in the product list in case you are interested in purchasing both of them.
