Five Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cards, each with a different background.

Hello friends. Today I wanted to showcase the early release Butterfly Brilliance bundle. It will be in the new 2021/22 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but is available to purchase now which is exciting!

View all these products HERE in my online store.

I wanted to make a quick set of 5 cards, so I cut a piece 6x6" DSP pieces into 5 strips (each one ended up being 13.3cm or 5&3/16" x 3cm or 1&3/16") and then added different backgrounds. I used the Butterfly Bijou DSP which is now sadly sold out, but you could substitute any DSP.

For some of the cards I left the strips of DSP straight. On others I rounded the top left corner and bottom right corner with the Detailed Trio Punch.

Here's a look at the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.

Here are the five different backgrounds I used on the Bermuda Bay base cards. 

Left to right we have:

  1. Scripty 3D Embossing Folder
  2. Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
  3. Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
  4. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Bermuda Bay ink stamped off once
  5. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Bermuda Bay ink NOT stamped off

5 quick and easu backgrounds for Stampin Up handmade cards.

For three of the cards I attached a die cut butterfly which I had also used the detailed die on. The butterflies were stamped in Magenta Madness ink onto Magenta Madness cardstock before die cutting. You can see all of the different ways to coordinate this bundle in my video below.

Before the Butterfly Bijou DSP sold out, I made these cards too, using die cut butterflies from the DSP.

Sponged embossing card making technique on a 2021 Mothers day card.

Hello friends. Today I have a 2021 Mothers day card for you. A little early maybe, but I wanted to play with the Meadow Moments embossing folders and use the sponged embossing papercraft and card making technique. The soft colours I wanted to use were perfect for a Mothers Day card. 

Here's how my card turned out.

Meadow Moments sponged embossing folder 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock with one one of the two embossing folders in the Meadow Moments embossing folder pack. Using sponge daubers, I lightly sponged the raised bits. I used the dauber and Blushing Bride ink pad for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the butterflies and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves. I also lightly sponged the white areas in between with Soft Sea Foam.

Next steps were to add a thin strip of Mint Macaron cardstock to the left side of this strip, and to adhere it to a Blushing Bride card base which had been embossed with the subtles 3D embossing folder. To finish my card off I embossed the Happy Mothers Day sentiment from the Strong Women stamp set in white embossing powder onto Mint Macaron cardstock. I cut the butterfly embellishment using the Butterfly Duo Punch, and a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock which I had also embossed with the Subtle 3D folder.

Here's another look at my colour combination for this one.

Today's card is a birthday card idea featuring the beautiful Fine Art Floral Suite and the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder in the NEW Stampin' Up! 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue (starting in 8 days).

Stampin Up Birthday Card using 2021 Fine Art Floral Suite

The Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper is my favourite patterned paper in this catalogue. The beautiful hand painted images are so gorgeous. For this card I have also used the coordinating Fine Art ribbon, and the Art Gallery stamp set.

Stampin Up Art Gallery Stamp Set

The Painted Texture 3D embossing folder is also part of the suite and is another way to show off the beautiful texture in this suite. I've also added some Linen Thread, Scalloped Lace Trim and Holiday Rhinestones for additional embellishment.

Stampin Up Birthday Card using 2021 Fine Art Floral Suite

The stamped panel is one of the light coloured sheets on the reverse of the floral patterns. I have stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink (stamped off once) and my birthday sentiment (from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set)  is stamped in Night of Navy. I love these colours together. 

PIN IT to save for future inspiration.

Masculine card idea for the men and boyfriends in your life.

Hi friends. Today I am sharing a Stampin' Up! simple card idea, which is perfect for the men and/or boyfriends in your life. It's also great for anyone who loves aviation or old planes. The stamp set is called Soar Confidently, and it's a new stand alone stamp set from the 2021 January to June mini catalogue. I've kept the layout and design of this card super simple, so it would be a great card for beginner cardmakers as well.

Stampin' Up! Soar Confidently Stamp Set and Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

As you can see my card design is super simple. It's just a couple of the Stitched Rectangle dies cut shapes with a greeting. The ink blended piece is actually a piece of the Sand and Sea Designer Series paper (coming January 5th in the 2021 January to June mini catalogue). My image and sentiment is just stamped in Soft Suede ink. When you have a simple design, you can add WOW to your card really easily by embossing the cardfront. The Absolutely Argyle 3D embossing folder is perfect for masculine cards and is available now in my online store. I also added some Braided Linen Trim (also available now) and adhered with Glue Dots to get the looped effect.

The Soar Confidently stamp set has some great sentiments for a range of masculine cards, and a couple of great balloon images as well. I think it's great for birthday and fathers day cards. Keep an eye out for it in the new 2021 January to June mini catalogue.
