Love the classic Navy and White colour combo in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! (on sale this month). It looks great with a pop of bright colour, but also suits a more subtle colour combination like I have used on today's birthday card.

It's been a while since I have pulled out my Elegant Butterfly punch, and I was reminded how simple it is to create a card using it. The Floral Boutique product suite also includes matching Washi tape, which makes coordinating the elements on this card an absolute breeze.

I've also used the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper to decorate one of our Petite Cafe bags. These kraft bags (on page 176 in the 2016 Stampin Up Annual Catalogue) come in packs of 10 for just $10.50. They are lined and food safe too. Perfect to package biscuits or any type of yummy treat :)

You're So Lovely Kit and Stamp Set from Stampin Up 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

Over the last few weeks, I've been having a play with one of the kits in the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions Catalogue, called You're So Lovely. Gold foil is so on trend right now, and this kit is a base kit you can play with to create some looks of your choice.

Let me show you some of the things I have made with this kits so far, and then I'll explain more about why I love the kit. I made a whole bunch of Congrats cards to send for some recent team achievements.

For these ones I added a few extra embellishments: some of the gold Metallic glitter tape which is one of the Saleabration choices, some gold buttone and some twine/linen thread. The butterfly die cut are included in the kit, along with the sponge brayer to colour them any colour you like.

Here's a closer look at the products. First up there is the kit which contains enough supplies to make 12 cards (with envelopes) and 12 gift bags. I'll be showing the gift bags in a later post, as soon as I get the chocolate eggs to fill them (temporarily pop in there for the few minutes while I take the photo and then eat them :) - love my job!).

You're so lovely Project Kit Stampin Up

Herein lies why I LOVE this kit - you get to play LOTS with ink and can customise things a lot, as well as have products left over at the end to use on other cards.

  • See those clear sheets? They are masks, and you can either use the negative or positive bits to place on your card and sponge over to create some cool effects.
  • There's also the sponge brayer (which comes with two head pieces you can interchange and also wash in running water after use. This allows to you achieve both a soft look (like on the first few cards) or a more saturated look (like on the butterfly cards). It's all about PLAY!
  • There are also some cute die cuts to play with including label in kraft or black which match the stamp set perfectly.
  • Adhesive gold tars and brads add extra embellishments to your cards.

You also get instructions and full colour pictures of what you could create.

There is also a matching stamp set. While I have used this on my projects, you could honestly still have heaps of fun with the kit without it. I'm all for matchy matchy though!

Quick and simple butterfly themed cards

We have lots of awesome butterfly themed products in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue, and they make it really quick and easy to make a wow card. Here's two butterfly themed cards I have made.  This one uses the Fluttering Wings embossing folder, with the Watercolor Wings 3 step stamp set stamped in Mint Macaron. I have added some bling with the silver metallic thread and by using the Greetings thinlits (LOVE these) to cut my greeting in silver glimmer paper.

Butterfly 1

This one uses the background stamp from 'You've Got This' along with a butterfly punched from Mint Macaron DSP in the 2015-17 In Colour stack (oops with the upside down writing - don't tell anyone OK?). For the centre of the butterfly, I have used a couple of Pink Pirouette Candy Dots (adhesive brads which come in packs of 100, 10 of each of 10 colours in each Stampin' Up! color group). These are great embellishments to have on hand.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics cards for every occasion

Here are some more cards I made on my mass produce note cards weekend just gone. I made up 20 of these and used a few different sentiments so I have cards on hand.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Notecards by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia

Don't be put off because the die looks intricate. I find it easy to get a good cut with these dies if you follow some steps:

  • I use injection foam on my more intricate dies, which really helps with getting a clean cut which pops off the die.
  • Make sure you have a firm 'sandwich' in your Bigshot. I placed the base magnetic plate, the acrylic plate, the die with the cut side facing upwards, the cardstock, the second acrylic plate and for these I added a cardstock shim.

It was quick and easy to cut 20 of the intricate butterfly, and then I popped out the extra pieces with the paper pierce while I was watching TV.

Here's the Stampin' Up! Colour Combination I used on these cards:

A stack of gift cards.

I had a heap of downline and customer packages to go out last week and I wanted to make some gift cards to go with them. I can't believe how quickly these came together! I made 20 cards in less than an hour.

washi tape cards stampin up

I have used  the Stampin' Up! mini square envelopes, and cut the cards 6.5cm x 13.0cm and scored in the centre. Then I stamped one of the must have Gorgeous Grunge stamp set images, added some random strips of the bright and happy trio of Gingham Garden washi tape, then added the Bitty Butterfly and rhinestone. My greeting is from Six Sided Sampler, but you could use any greeting you had.

stampin up gorgeous grunge
Love how the envelope liners turned out! This is the smallest of the 3 shapes in the Envelope Die Framelits. Just a note about these framelits. At the moment these are 25% off, because Stampin' Up! wanted to slightly change the shape of the largest Framelit. Personally I didn't notice anything was wrong with it, so I think its a great buy. Oh how I LOVE that chevron print in our paper stacks, and the other 3 great prints!
