When I received my copy of the 2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog last April at the OnStage event in San Antonio, I knew immediately that the Beautiful Friendship set would be one of my VERY FAVORITE stamp sets in the catalog! I love the floral images and the watercolor look you can achieve just by stamping them!! I also think it’s a hidden gem in the catalog, because I’ve heard a lot of demonstrators and customers say they didn’t even notice it at first! It’s on page 123 in the catalog, or #149252 here in my online store.
I saw this note card idea on Instagram by creativejuicebyloni and I knew I needed to try this idea!! The 3-1/2″ x 5″ Thick Whisper White note cards are the perfect size to use for these simple single layer cards!! I think they MIGHT qualify for #simplestamping
It is probably really difficult to see in the photos, but I used a Wink of Stella pen on each flower and they are SO pretty in person!
I really wanted to keep this color palette simple, and selected Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Black ink.
I die cut the Stitched Rectangles dies for my sentiment, which covers up where the 2 large rose images meet, and stamped “Let’s Celebrate” and “So Very Thankful” on them in Memento Black ink. These sentiments are from the “For the Love of Felt” stamp set, pg 201 or #149507 here in my online Stampin’ UP! Store.
I’m sure you can imagine unlimited possibilities with color combos for this card design, let me know which colors you plan to use!

Stampin’ UP! was so smart to introduce the Call Me Cupcake framelit dies this month to go with the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-Bration stamp set!!! I created a cute Birthday Gift Tag with the Hello Cupcake set and Call Me Cupcake framelits!! I added some Daffodil Delight Sale-a-Bration organdy ribbon – it’s available as I type this.. not sure when the supply will run out.
And yes, that REALLY is a Tiffany’s box.. it was the perfect color to go with our Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and cardstock!! The only thing I own from Tiffany’s is a beautiful glass memento I received after I served on the Stampin’ Up! Advisory Board, a decade ago. My desire is to also own a piece of jewelry from there… someday 🙂
So, back to the Birthday Gift Tag Idea… I stamped and die cut the Hello Cupcake images in: Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo. I think I’m slightly in love with that color combo!! I die cut each stamped piece with the Call Me Cupcake framelits. I die cut the cake stand with Coastal Cabana cardstock and the “glass dome” with an Acetate Window Sheet. I layered all the pieces onto a Thick Whisper White tag that I cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer and I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. I allowed the acetate dome to stick up at the top and attached it to the gift box with Pool Party/Silver Baker’s Twine.
Check out ALL of the Stampin’ UP! Color options HERE.
The Hello Cupcake stamp set is only available as a free Sale-a-Bration item with your $50 order through March 31, 2019.
Finishing Touches for my birthday gift tag… A die cut tag from the Detailed Birthday Edgelit set stamped with Real Red ink and the Sweet Wishes greeting from the Hello Cupcake set is also attached with the Baker’s Twine, and then … wait for it… here’s the TIP OF THE DAY... I put mini glue dots on the cupcake in 3 spots to adhere the acetate window sheet dome, then put Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots on top of them so they wouldn’t show!! VOILA! 🙂
You Are Welcome 🙂
I added a small strip of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper to the bottom of the tag. It kind of reminded me of a cute little cafe that might be serving this delish cupcake!!

You may have already seen this Monarch Butterfly card in my Facebook Live video earlier in the week, and I am really excited to share it with you on my blog! This handstamped card features the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala bundle, Graceful Glass Vellum colored with Stampin’ Blends markers, and a Spectrum rainbow pad that I inked with reds, yellows and oranges to stamp the butterflies and birthday greeting!
After I started stamping all of the rainbow Spectrum pad butterflies, I had it in mind to make a Monarch butterfly and I think I succeeded with this red/orange/yellow Spectrum rainbow pad! I made this card for someone very special celebrating a very special birthday on Monday! We are celebrating with lunch and shopping on Tuesday, and I’ll give it to her then. Yep, it’s for Cindee. 🙂
Find the Butterfly Gala bundle currently on page 35 in your 2019 Occasions catalog, or HERE online #150599
Save 10% when you order the Stamp set and Punch together in the bundle!
The greeting (from the Humming Along stamp set #148758) is stamped with the same Spectrum pad as the butterflies, and stamped onto a die cut from my Rose Trellis thinlit dies #148549, pg 9 of the Occasions catalog.
As I mentioned in the video, I colored on the back of the strip of Graceful Glass vellum with my Stampin’ Blends markers, then added a strip of Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum so that the leaf pattern from the Floral Romance designer paper pack wouldn’t show through. The card is a 4-1/4″ x 11″ folded Thick Whisper White cardstock base.
I have been stamping and coloring these fun Piece of Cake images with my Stampin’ Blends markers and creating such fun cards with them! The Stampin’ UP! Note Cards are the perfect size for these little cake images! Find the Piece of Cake Bundle #150579 (stamp set & punch) on page 18 in your Occasions catalog, or HERE in my online store.
The cake and cake stand were stamped with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers. I punched them out with the Cake Builder punch and layered them onto Stitched Shape Oval Die cuts. The fun flourish image at the top of the cake above is from the Amazing Life stamp set. I thought it was such a fun “cake topper” 🙂 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots finish off the card.
I decided to create with an unexpected color combo for birthday cakes, but I think they turned out really cool!
Here is my Stampin’ Up! Color Combo for these Piece of Cake cards:
The Stitched Oval die cuts are layered onto Bermuda Bay and Call Me Clover Scalloped Oval die cuts, then layered onto Stampin’ UP! thick Note Cards. I also used some Coastal Cabana designer paper from the “Brights” Designer Series Paper Stack #146964, and Bermuda Bay striped ribbon to enhance the fun, bright, color theme.
I stamped the Happy Birthday Greeting with my Blue/Green Spectrum Rainbow pad and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. Click HERE to read more about that rainbow pad!
Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots finish off this cute Birthday card!
The How Sweet it Is suite of Stampin’ Up! products in the 2019 Occasions catalog is so cute and so much fun to work with! The bright colors are perfect for birthday celebrations, like this handmade Z Fold card I created! I have also used the new Rectangle Stitched framelits #148551 to create great layers on this card!
I stamped the front and inside with greetings from the Birthday Wishes stamp set, pg 17 in the Occasions catalog, #148604 in Melon Mambo ink. The colorful gummy bears on the How Sweet It Is printed designer paper set the color scheme for this fun birthday card idea. The adorable candy jar on the front is die cut right from the How Sweet It Is designer paper and the matching Jar of Sweets framelits! SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle here: #150568
4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and 2-3/4″. Add layers with Rectangle Stitched framelit dies #148551.
This Z Fold Card folds totally flat but pops up to reveal the inside when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!
I am so excited to share this fun Christmas card idea with you!!! I saw the idea on Pinterest to use the Bokeh dots background stamp with the Rainbow pad, and the tree die cut from the "In The Woods" framelit die set (#147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog). The card idea inspired by demonstrator Katie Drew! I added a beautiful layer of White Shimmer Paint to the tree die cuts, and the "Merry" die cut from the "Merry Christmas Thinlit dies" (#147912, pg 5 Holiday catalog) using the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (#147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog).
If you have not yet inked a spectrum rainbow pad with Stampin' UP! ink refills, you can watch the video below!
The Bokeh Dots background stamp was inked with the rainbow pad shown above, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, then used as the background for the die cut trees.
New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog supplies used on this project:
Merry Christmas Thinlit dies #147912, pg 5, Holiday catalog
Noel Glimmer paper #147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog
Merry Christmas to All stamp set #147702 (available as a bundle with the dies) (pg 5)
White Shimmer paint #147044, pg 38 Holiday catalog
In The Woods framelit die set #147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog
Tip #1 & #2:
Sponge White Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber onto the Whisper White Die Cut trees
To adhere both layers together, put small dots of glue on the top tree, allowing the little "flaps" to still lift up.
Put the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the Glimmer paper first, then die cut the word Merry. This will give you a "sticker" to put onto your project and you don't have to mess with glue! 🙂
Don't forget to purchase your supplies for this project in my online store!
The products from the 2018 Holiday catalog will be available starting Sept. 5, 2018.
After I added the "merry" die cut, I stamped "& bright" from the Merry Christmas to All set in Shaded Spruce ink. You can purchase the stamp set and dies as a bundle.. see page 5 of the 2018 Holiday catalog!! Available starting Sept. 5, 2018.
