Happy Easter Wreaths & FF0080

I’m LOVING my Easter Wreaths! The card above I added butterflies (retired stamp set) to the tag label so I could participate with the Festive Friday #FF0080 Challenge! I chose BRIGHT COLORS, RIBBON, & BUTTERFLIES from the INSPO LIST. I basically CASEd (copy and share everything) this wreath from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog from page 127. I tweaked it and made it my own! There is A LOT of inspiration in the Stampin’ Up! catalogs! I used the Arrange A Wreath Bundle to create my cards. By the way, this bundle is on the Last Chance List and WILL NOT be in the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You’ll be able to still purchase this bundle through May 3 or while supplies last! Also be sure to check out the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0080 to see all the wonderful cards created by others!

Here are my first two cards (below) that I created using the Arrange A Wreath Bundle. The one with the grass on the bottom is for my granddaughter, Theä! She is going to LOVE her card! I also added Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Daffodil Delight flowers on the wreath on her card. For all the other flower centers, I punched out Flirty Flamingo little circles using a retired punch. This is where I definitely use my Take Your Pick tool for picking up those itty bitty circles and then putting them into place in the middle of those little flowers! I placed of drop of glue, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, in the center of the flowers first. I used a retired die set, Basket Builder Framelits Dies, for the grass. I primarily used TomBow Multipurpose Glue to adhere everything except the little flowers and centers. For that I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. LOVE THAT STUFF! By the way, you can use the Clear Block B or the Stamparatus for stamping all the images.

NOTE: The 1-1/2″ Circle Punch & Arrange A Wreath Bundle is on the Last Chance List!

Thursday Bundle Spotlight – Butterfly Bouquet

Who doesn’t LOVE butterflies?! PLUS this is an EARLY RELEASE product that will be in the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog but you can preorder NOW. WooHoo!

The two paper packs are only available during this early release promotion or only while supplies last. OH MY!

BUTTERFLY BOUQUET INFORMATION

The Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set is a single stamp that has a burst of butterflies that is a background stamp but can also be used to create single butterflies by using the coordinating die set. AWESOME! Use this stamp to create projects for Mother’s Day, weddings, and more. Pair this stamp with greetings of your choice to customize it for the spring or summer season or a special occasion. Stamp the line-art image and add color with your choice of coloring technique, or apply different colors of ink to the stamp before stamping to create a unique look. Whatever you do with it, I know the results will be beautiful.  

Create beautifully detailed butterflies for all of your paper crafting projects with the Brilliant Wings Dies. Once you’ve cut out a swarm of butterflies, you can create a background, make a focal point, or use them as accents. There’s so much you can do. BUNDLE and you save 10% off your purchase!

It’s All In Good Taste To CASE!

No! You are NOT seeing double! LOL! I needed to create a masculine birthday card for my son-in-law, Jon, and my husband’s Uncle Marvin. Their birthdays are on the same day! I don’t know why but I struggle with creating masculine cards. I knew that I wanted to use In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) but I turned to my Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for some inspiration. WELL . . . on page 122 I found it! Literally! I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the Note Card “YOU ARE THE BEST” but I wanted it to be a regular card size so I tweaked it and made it my own, so to speak. Some will say they could never create a card because they don’t have the creativity or talent but one of the beauties about creating cards, you can find inspiration in many places and even CASE from someone’s card but always give credit where credit is due! Here is the card I CASEd . . . don’t you just love that TEXTURE!

I just love this card but I absolutely LOVE the texture of ALL the papers in the In Good Taste DSP pack. Click on the product in the table below to see a close up of all the different designs this pack has to offer.

As I mentioned before, this card is a Note Card size so I tweaked it a bit and made it a regular card size. This card uses the Tasteful Touches Bundle, which you save 10% when buying bundles. You can buy the stamp set and die separately but who doesn’t love to bundle for a 10% Discount?!

I couldn’t decide what solid colored cardstock to use so I tried two different colors, Gray Granite and Sarah Sand. I embossed the smaller strip of solid color with the Sublte 3D Embossing Folder. I didn’t have the same embellishments in the CASEd picture so I used what I had on hand, Metallic Pearls which comes with both Silver and Gold (121 pearls in each color). Here’s a close up . . .

CARD DETAILS

  • Card Base | Basic White Thick Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ | Scored at 4-1/4″
  • Solid panel cardstock 5-1/4″ x 4″ | Gray Granite or Sarah Sand
  • In Good Taste DSP panel 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Solid strip 1″ x 3-1/4″ | Embossed
  • Basic White Cardstock for sentiment 1-1/2″ x 3-1/4″| Die cut
  • Stamp the little blocks image with VersaMark onto the DSP | Emboss with White Emboss Powder
  • Adhere panels onto card base | I used the Tombow Multipurpose Glue
  • Stamp sentiment | Early Espresso
  • Pop up sentiment label with dimensionals | NOTE: keep them to the left side of label.
  • OPTIONAL: add Gold Metallic Pearls | I used five pearls

Click on the product(s) below for details and shop my online store!

NOTES:

  • You don’t have to use Basic White Thick Cardstock for your base. You can use just Basic White. Normally if add panels, I don’t use the thicker cardstock but in this case I did for that more masculine feel.
  • I added the Neutrals 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock in the product table as it has 20 sheets, 2 each of 10 colors which includes the Sarah Sand and Gray Granite.
  • You don’t have to have the embossing folder but I love that extra bit of texture on this card. The card in the catalog uses Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder which you can see HERE. Hummmm . . . why don’t I have that particular embossing folder?! LOL!
