Stampin’Up!: Papillon Potpourri Birthday Card

Stampin'Up! Papillon Potpourri and Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set


As I type this, I can hear Jackson crying in the background. Nothing serious, just wanting to be fed again! There’s nothing like having a baby in the house for lifting spirits. Thank you for all your well wishes…


Today. I want to share with you a birthday card back in November. I used the Stampin’Up! Papillon Potpourri and Serene Silhouettes Stamp Sets, which go well together.

Stampin'Up! Papillon and Serene Sihouette

I used  Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and Ink. I stamped the wildflowers in Gumball Green and inked up the flowers in Wisteria Wonder. On a separate sheet of Whisper White Card Stock, I stamped an extra flower, cut it out and over-layed it with a Dimensional. I stamped one of the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, cut it out, adhered it and for the butterfly body I placed some Basic Rhinestones.  You gotta love those! I tied a pretty Gumball Green bow with Stampin’Up!’s Stitched Ribbon. In the lower right hand corner I tucked the birthday message from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.


Happy New Year and Stampin’ Hugs,

Hello Blossoms: Birthday Card For Laura

 Stampin' Up! hand made female birthday card

Today is my niece Laura’s birthday. Laura is my cousin Lisa’s daughter and in my heart Lisa is like a sister to me and Laura like a niece.  I wanted to share the birthday card I made for her.

Stampin' Up! Hello Blossoms Birthday Card

This birthday card is pretty straight forward. I used the Stampin’ Up! retired stamp set Hello Blossoms. This is a take on an older card I made. I used Peach Parfait,  Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink and card stock. Green brads and a Bow made from Baker’s Twine finishes this birthday card off. Laura LOVES frogs hence the Lucky Limeade.


Directions to make this card:

Pear Pizzazz Card Stock         5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″  and score it at 4-1/4″

Whisper White Card Stock    5″ x 3-3/4″ and  4-1/4″ x 3″

Blushing Bride Card Stock    4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″


I took my Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Markers and inked up the  Hello Blossoms Stamp and stamped it on the smaller Whisper White piece of Card Stock.  I didn’t quite center it. I stamped it a bit to the right, so I had some balance in the design when I put the bow on. I also didn’t want a solid inked image, so I went light with the markers.


I then inked up the Happy Birthday from the Bring on the Cake Stamp  in Pear Pizzazz and stamped it under the Hello Blossoms. I lined it up to the left to have room for the one blossom I wanted to stamp at the end of the happy birthday.


I added some Green Galore Brads (retired) to each flower center.


Happy Birthday Laura!


Check back tomorrow for another button project.  Oh, joy!

Today is Freddie’s Birthday…

I have been a very busy card-maker. In fact as busy as a bee…


There sure seems to be a lot of December birthdays! Yikes… This card I made for my closest friend Freddie. I just had to use Betsy the bee-keeper because I adore her. This one’s for you Freddie!




For this card I used Daffodil Delight and Basic Black Card Stock. On the smaller piece of Daffodil Delight I stamped the flower from Stampin’ Up!’s Just Buzzin’ By Stamp Set in More Mustard Ink then I used my White Gel Pen and colored in the petals of the flowers. I stamped Betsy in Basic Black Ink on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and water-colored her in with my Aqua Painter, Markers and Pencils. The happy birthday greeting is from the Happy Moments Stamp Set. Once stamped I used two oval punches, one scalloped, as shown. A piece of Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon and Basic Pearls finishes the card off.


Take a closer look at Betsy:






As I mentioned in an earlier post I’m internally doing major construction to my blog. I would love for you have your very own gallery page, but, in order to do that I need some photos of your work. Here’s the deal, you send me, attached in an email, any card, scrap-book page or project you have done using all of Stampin’ Up! products. I’ll feature it on a gallery page I’m designing just for your works of art!  Include your name and a title for the featured project. So, get on the band wagon, as they use to say!


Make it a great day!


Stampin’ Hugs,





Today is Janet’s Birthday…

Today is my life long friend & cousin Janet’s birthday.


This is the birthday card I designed for her, I love using my Big Shot. Most of all I love using my Big Shot with Embossig Folders. The embossing is easy to achieve and really can’t be beat for detail. For Janet’s card I used the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla and Pear Pizzazz Card Stock. I stamped the images from the Stamp Set Punch Potpourri  in Soft Suede Ink. I used the matching punches to punch out all the images. Each image has a matching punch. How nice is that?. For the embellishments I added lots of Pearls!
