Butterflies Thinlits Thank You Card

I hope your week has started off well!  Today I am sharing cards I made over the weekend to send out to customers who placed orders in the last few days.

I don’t like sharing product that you can’t purchase so while I would normally add some pearls or rhinestones to my card, I didn’t as they’ve sold out.

 The paper I used to cut out the butterflies, Floral Boutique, is on the retired list but as of right now, it’s available and not showing up as being low inventory.  I used the Petal Burst embossing folder for the Whisper White layer.  You could definitely make the card without the embossing but I think it adds a nice touch. 

Tip:  I used glue dots down the center of the butterfly. You could also use Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You’ll find a list of all the products I used to make this card below as well as the measurements for the layers. 

Measurements for Layers

Thick Whisper White:  8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″  scored at 4-1/4″

Night of Navy cardstock:  4″ x 5-1/4″

Whisper White:  3-3/4″ x 5″

Birthday Card Using Bunch of Blossoms by Stampin’ Up!


Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend!

Yesterday I posted a video from Stampin’ Up! but for those of you who receive notification of my blog posts via email, the video didn’t show up in the email.  I have no idea why this happens but I’ll try to remember to let you know next time to click the title of the post so that you can see the post in its entirety.

Today I want to share a card I made for a friend of mine for her birthday using the stamp set Bunch of Blossoms.  This is a Two-Step Stamp set which allows you to combine individual stamps to build the final image you want, in the colors you want. In this stamp set you get a whopping 26 pieces!  I’ve pointed out below which ones I used to create my card.


Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set #141573


This was the first time I’d used this stamp set and I did a lot of experimenting to get the look I wanted.  For the petals, I used one color but when I used the stamp on the right (the one with more coverage), I stamped onto my ink pad and then stamped off on my grid paper before stamping onto my Whisper White piece.   The other stamp was used full strength.  I did the same thing with the leaves.  I recommend trying it out and seeing what you like!

I added Wink of Stella to the petals and leaves which gave it a pretty shimmery look!  I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  My sentiment is from the stamp set Birthday Banners.

Another Layout with the Seasonal Decorative Masks


Several days ago I shared a card I made using the Seasonal Decorative Masks from Stampin’ Up! You can see it HERE.  For today’s card I used the same mask and colors to create my design and then sized it down for this layout.

Here are the measurements for the panels:  Dapper Denim:  2″ x 5-1/4″  &  Whisper White:  1-3/4″ x 5″

Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

Seasonal Decorative Masks by Stampin’ Up!


I am in love with a product in the Holiday Catalog that I bet you haven’t even noticed!  They are the Seasonal Decorative Masks and they are tucked away on page 43.  Each stencil measures 6″ x 6″ and there’s so much you can do with them!


One way to use them would be to simply place your Whisper White cardstock underneath the mask and create a fun pattern with a sponge dauber and an ink pad!

For my card today, I sponged Emerald Envy over the entire stencil.  Then I went in with Dapper Denim and randomly sponged.  I love how it turned out!

I used the one on the right for my card and the one on the left is just Emerald Envy.


The one on the right is Crushed Curry and the one on the left is a combination of Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.


Imagine all the color combinations you could create!!

Watercolor Flowers

Hi Friends!

Watercolor Flowers Thank You

Today’s card is one that I made weeks ago but am just now sharing.  It started as an experiment to see the different looks I could get by stamping the flowers in different ways.   I knew I wanted the flowers to have a watercolor effect but I wasn’t quite sure the best way to achieve that look.  I tried putting ink from my stamp pad directly onto a large acrylic block and then spraying the block with a fine mist of water.  I then tapped my stamp onto the block but by the time I stamped it onto my paper, it was too watery looking.

Here’s what I did to achieve the results I liked.  First, I inked my stamp in the stamp pad and then sprayed my stamp three times with my water mister.  If I did it more than that, it was too watery and I didn’t like the look I achieved with less than three spritzes.  Of course, each water mister will perform differently.  I found that if I then stamped my paper with a light touch, I liked the effect better than pressing down hard.  If you decide to give this a try, I recommend experimenting as I did. You’ll find what you like best!

I fussy cut each flower out with my paper snips and then added a White Perfect Accents to the center of each one.  The Pacific Point flowers were adhered to my paper with Snail and the Cucumber Crush one has a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back.

I’ve listed the supplies I used below.  I did NOT use the Thinlit dies that go with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I’ve listed the bundles though in case you are interested in a 10% discount if you purchase them together.
