The first time I tried to order the Butterfly Gala Bundle in the Occasions Catalog, it was sold out 😦  I was excited when I got a notification that it was back in stock, and ordered it right away. You can also buy the stamp set and punch separately. Both options are listed below.

I just got around to using it after I saw this card and fell in love with the colors and layout and CASEd it! What a great card to make if you need several. I just love the colors of the papers in the Gingham Gala 6″x6″ DSP – any and all of them look great with each other, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of putting them together.

Don’t miss out on this great bundle and the sweet paper pack! They can be found in the Occasions Catalog, and you can click here to shop from this seasonal publication.

I showed these to my son and he didn’t appreciate all of the white space…but I do not mind it at all. I really often like it.

Funky Flowers

Edited to correct: The end of the Occasions Catalog is NOT March! It ends June 3, 2019.🤦🏻‍♀️

I’m not usually drawn to bold, bright patterned paper. I don’t know – just something about this floral print made me want to make a card with it! I really like this paper pack, which is only in the Occasions Catalog until the end of March – just a few more days June 3rd. The sentiment is from the All Adorned stamp set, which you can get for free with a qualifying order – but only until the end of March! I love the graphic designs in this set, and that is what drew me to it.

It’s who I am

As a card maker, I love to send cards to people. I have been writing letters to loved ones since I was a child. I would send letters on fun stationery to my dad when we moved far away, to my grandparents in another state, and to pen pals I had. When I have dear friends who live in the same town, I like to send them a card now and then, too. It’s just part of who I am. For those of you who visit this blog, I bet you can totally relate.

I took my color inspiration from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP pack in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. I used the vellum piece of paper and matching colors to complete. Although the color listed on the paper pack is Fresh Fig, I feel like the Blackberry Bliss used on the sentiment works great. The sentiment is from an old Hostess stamp set from 2008 called Best Yet. All other items used are current as of now, and are linked below. Oh and that amazing green linen thread – it’s also from the Occasions catalog. I must stock up, just in case it retires forever at the end of the month!

Here’s a tip in using this beautiful vellum – I put small glue dots under the flowers and darker green leaves and you cannot see them! Patterned vellum us so special!

When’s the last time you sent a card – just because? I bet it would, or did, make someone’s day 🙂

This post could also be called, “No such thing as purple-ish trees?” Haha!

I saw a card on youtube by Stamping Jill and liked it so much I made one very similar. She showed us that you can use the Tin Tile dynamic embossing folder with patterned paper – I had no idea! It worked like a charm. I used a piece with a faint pattern on it to showcase the folder’s raised surface, and it happened to be Fresh Fig colored. Hence the purple-ish tree to match.

This embossing folder is a carryover item from the 2018 Holiday Catalog, item #147906 (link below). As of now, it’s still available – woohoo! TIP: it’s best to spritz a little water on your paper before running it through the Big Shot. This helps to loosen the fibers. This embossing folder is not messing around! It really leaves a deep impression on your paper.

My favorite tree is the one in Crushed Curry because I like how it turned out with the Cajun Craze-colored outer leaves. To get this effect, I stamped the image in Crushed Curry, then carefully stamped some Cajun Craze gently around the edges of the leaves right over the Crushed Curry ink using a sponge dauber, then re-moistened the ink using my breath before stamping.

I usually don’t make cards without a sentiment on the front, but it’s a nice card to have in my stash, as I can add any sentiment inside when the time comes.

But really, should I wait until next Fall to send this to someone??🤔

Lots of Happy x 3

I made a few cards from the beautiful card kit, Lots of Happy. I adore this kit! Have you seen this in the catalog? What’s so great about it is that absolutely everything you need to make 20 cards is included, included the envelopes! AND you can order refills, too!

The watercolor pencils are exclusive colors – some of my favorites – the Lemon Lime Twist & Flirty Flamingo – so pretty! And with watercolor pencils, it’s just about as foolproof as you can get.

On 2 of these 3 cards, I used sentiment stamps that were not in the kit – simply because I needed something different. But the layouts are exactly as the kit shows. Check out the photos below of the card kit and refill. If you click on each, you’ll be taken to my website for even more information on this kit – including an in-depth video!

If this kit isn’t your style – Stampin’ Up! has several other kits! Click here for other options.

Shameless plug:

From now until 3/31/19 you could order the Lots of Happy Card Kit and the Lots of Happy Card Kit Refill and get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! This is just one of the endless options you have. Choose what you want from the SAB catalog with each qualifying order. 🙂
