Back to Black Butterfly

The other day I posted THIS CARD which provided the focal point for today’s card.

Black and White Butterfly

I used the butterfly that was cut out of the Back to Black DSP using the Butterflies Thinlits to make today’s card.  The base card stock is Whisper White.  The Basic Black layer is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″.  On a piece of Whisper White cut 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, it was embossed with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder.  The centre was punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch.  It was layered onto a piece of Basic Black punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch.  These circles were placed over the punched out piece of embossed Whisper White with dimensionals.  The butterfly was adhered to the centre with glue dots and pearls added to the body of the butterfly.

The sentiment is from the SAB set A Happy Thing stamp set.


  • Stamp Set:  A Happy Thing
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Back to Black DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black
  • Accessories:  Spring Flowers Embossing Folder, Butterfly Thinlits, 1 3/4″ Scalloped Circle and 2″ Circle Punches, Pearls

Groovy Love

Spent a “Groovy Love” day with Alannah, Jen, Paige and Danielle on Wednesday as we gathered to share a family recipe for some dumplings.  After a quick “tutorial”, here’s Paige and Dani folding and crimping the dumplings.

And here’s a Groovy Love card using the Hearts Border Punch to create the centre focal point.
Heart Border Punch card

The card base is Real Red cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″ and rolled through the Big Shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. Using the Hearts Border punch, cut a piece of Real Red card stock 2 1/2″ square and centre in the punch. Punch the first row and rotate the sides to punch the hearts on all four sides. I used the back of the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. Stamp one of the hearts from the Groovy Love set using Real Red on Whisper White card stock and punch out with the Sweetheart punch and add to the centre focal piece with dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment from Groovy Love with Real Red and cut out with the Bitty Banner Framelits and adhere to the front of the heart.

Complete the card by wrapping a length of White Organza ribbon around the middle of the Whisper White layer. Layer a length of Real Red 1/4″ Cotton ribbon over the centre of the White Organza ribbon and fasten both lengths of ribbon behind the Whisper White layer. Adhere the square heart focal piece centred on the card front and you’re finished!


  • Stamp Set:  Groovy Love
  • Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White
  • Ink:  Real Red
  • Accessories:  Large Polka Dot embossing folder, Hearts Border Punch, Sweetheart Punch, Bitty Banners Framelits; Envelope Punch Board, 5/8″ Organza Ribbon, 1/4″ Real Red Cotton ribbon.

A Happy Thing and Free Shipping

Another great Sale-A-Bration stamp set is A Happy Thing with 2 delightful images that are  perfect for coloring with the Blendabilities!   It’s finally taken me all this time to mount this set and had fun putting this card together.

A Happy Thing

Another super new item in the Occasions mini is the White Jute Ribbon that I got to incorporate in this card too.  The card base is Whisper White cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  Cut a layer of Old Olive card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″.  To this layer I attached a length of the White Jute Ribbon ( 4 7/8″ long) and trimmed the bottom with the Craft Scissors to make a flag.  The smaller flag was made with the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP (free SAB item) cut 1 1/4″  by 4 1/2″.  Using a sponge, I applied Old Olive classic ink to the paper and then wiped the excess ink off with a paper towel.  I cut the flag at the bottom with paper snips.

For the focal image I first made a mask of the lemon.  Stamp one lemon image and place the mask over it and then stamp a lemon on each side of it.  I used the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color the lemon and the leaves with Old Olive Blendabilities.  I next cut out the focal image using the 7th largest (counting from the smallest one first) Circle Collections Framelits.  Cut out a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock using the 8th largest circle and mat it to the focal image.  It is then adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals.

  • Stamp Set: A Happy Thing (SAB)
  • Ink:  Old Olive Classic Ink
  • Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
  • Accessories:  Circle Collections Framelits, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities, White Jute Ribbon, Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP (SAB), Craft Scissors, Paper Snips, Dimensionals

Something for Baby – Weekly Deals

Did I say I love the Irresistibly Your Specialty Designer Series Paper?  I absolutely do!  I used one of the sheets with the stars to make this baby card.

Something for Baby Irresistably Yours DSP

The main card stock is Soft Sky cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ with a layer of Pistachio Pudding cut 5 1/4″ by 4″.  The Irresistibly Yours DSP is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″ and was then sponged with Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding Classic Inks randomly.  After sponging, use a paper towel and rub all over the sponged DSP to remove the excess ink from the embossed portions and those areas just shine!

I used a piece of the sponged DSP to cut out the duck using the Baby’s First Framelits and mounted it onto layers of Whisper White punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Pistachio Pudding punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and Soft Sky punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch.  This scallops were pierced using the Paper Piercing Tool.  This focal image was popped onto a strip of Whisper White strip measuring 3/4″ by 5 1/4″ and flagged at the ends with Paper Snips.

The sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts was stamped using Soft Sky Classic Ink.


  • Stamp Sets:  Something for Baby, A Dozen Thoughts
  • Paper:  Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding
  • Accessories:  Baby’s First Framelits, 1 3/8″ and 1 3/4″ Circle Punches, 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, Sponge, Paper Piercer, Paper SnipsG

Happy Hearts

When I first signed up with Stampin’ Up! my favourite colors were Rose Red and Mellow Moss.  I think I used Rose Red on every card I made for the longest time – lol.  Unfortunately in the last few years it has been one that I rarely used but happy that it has not been discontinued.  It’s featured in today’s card with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder.

Valentine Class Jan 2015 Happy Heart











We made this at my recent Valentine’s class and it’s a lovely simple card. The card base is Whisper White cut 4 1/4″ x11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. The Rose Red layer is cut 3 3/4″ x 5″. We embossed a piece of Whisper White cut 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ with the Embossing Folder and attached to the Rose Red. Lay a strip of Sticky Strip half way across the two layers. Using the Rose Red seam binding, fold over a small piece on the left hand side and start folding and crimping the ribbon 2/3 across the front of the card. Stamp the sentiment from Good Greetings in Rose Red ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and punch it out along with a Rose Red card stock using the Sweetheart punch and layer over each other. Attach to the right hand side of the card with dimensionals. Complete the card with Rhinestones colored with Melon Mambo Blendabilities and adhered to the hearts.


  • Stamp Set:  Good Greetings
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Rose Red
  • Ink:  Rose Red
  • Accessories:  Rose Red Seam Binding, Sweetheart Punch, Happy Hearts Embossing Folder, Rhinestones, Melon Mambo Blendabilities, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
