Butterflies are My Favorite Stampin Up Thinlits

Butterflies Thinlits, Stampin Up

Hello, my Stampin’ friends! It’s been a very fast week so it’s time for a fast Friday card! I have been working so hard this week getting my craft room cleaned and organized! Today’s card is a result of that effort – cleaning the craft table of items that were cut but not used for whatever reason over the past few months. I can’t bear to throw them away so they get tossed into a pile, just waiting for a card in the future. Most of the details on this card were in that pile so all I had to do was emboss the label framelit, cut out the sentiment and cut the vellum. The embellishments were easily added to bring the card all together. Did you notice that there are NO stamps on this card at all?! That’s not very typical for me – I usually have quite the list of stamps! LOL Do you have a good idea on what to do with the scraps you have? I would love to hear them!! Butterflies Thinlits, Stampin Up, close up

TIP: I have found a fun way to pop up the Greetings Thinlits! I cut it in the paper I want then cut it again with Peel & Stick Craft Foam. The foam adheres to the card so I only have to add glue to the top side of the craft foam with a thin layer of glue. Give it a try!

  • Paper: Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Naturals Ivory CS

Best Blossoms Look Lovely Adorned in the New In Colors

RRCB39

Hello, my Stampin’ friends! There’s summer in the air here in Michigan! How about where you are? We had some absolutely fantastic cards submitted for the last challenge! Did you get to see them yet? You really do need to see them! We continue on to our next challenge that is also about flowers! It’s that time of year, right? And considering we had a very late snow just a couple of weeks ago, flowers are sorely needed here. I had no problem finding some flowers to stamp at all! I chose two stamp sets, Best Blossoms (circa 2006 according to the date on the stamp) and Friendship Flowers (2006-2007 Annual Catalog). This was when I had just discovered stamping, buying stamps but didn’t have a clue – or the supplies – to use them. I seriously doubt that these two stamps have ever been used! Isn’t that such a shame?? Well, not only did they get inked up this weekend, they got the brand new In-Colors from Stampin’ Up! There isn’t a bad color in the bunch! I used Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum for my card below.

Bold Blossoms, Friendship Flowers, Botanical Builders, Stampin Up

There is more that I could do to this card but decided to keep it on the CAS side (for me). I really love the sentiment from Friendship Flowers! The new Layering Square Framelits are absolutely wonderful! You will have so many possibilities using them. The flower and leaves from Botanical Builder Framelits are also a great way to add some interest to your card.

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

  • Stamp Sets: Best Blossoms, Friendship Flowers
  • Paper: Playful Palette DSP Stack, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum
  • Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum
  • SU Tools: Layering Square Framelits, Botanical Builders Framelits
  • Finishing Touch: 3/8″ Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Iced Rhinestones
