    Snail Mail Birthday

    It always amazes me when I can create a card and never pull out an ink pad. This is (almost) the case with the Snail Mail birthday cards. The Snail Mail DSP is so adorable by itself, I just fancy cut images from that and adhered them to the card front. I did use the Friendly Flamingo stamp set for the cute little birthday greeting.

    Pretty Birthday

    I didn’t notice this set until a few weeks ago. It’s called Prettiest Birthday and has a matching die cut set from the Spring 2021 Stampin’ Up! mini catalog. I stamped the images in gold, embossed them and then it was easy to color them in. The background is embellished with Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder.

    Fluttering Birthday

    I have been wanting to use the Stampin’ Up! Floating & Fluttering stamp set for awhile. You are able to stamp a group of butterflies together, and then die cut them all at once too — so much fun! I stamped Blossoms & Blooms for the background and used the Ornate Dies to back that up. Just call me the “layering lady” — that’s my new nickname!

    Friends are like Seashells #1

    I have been waiting to use the new Friends Are Like Seashells set from Stampin’ Up!, but couldn’t decide how to use it. There are so many beautiful cards on the web and the set practically makes the card itself. I finally decided on using my go-to layering technique. The background paper is a Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Seashells 3D embossing folder. Next is a vellum die cut using the Seaside Seashells die. Beside the lovely seashell images, I used Opal Rounds to give it a little bling!

    More of You

    I was inspired to use some of Stampin’ Ups! beautiful Ornate Frames and Layers dies. They are so beautiful and versatile when working on layered cards — and they make your card look like you spent hours on it! I stepped out of my box by using two of the new in-colors: Just Jade and Magenta Madness as well as the Flowers for Every Season DSP. I think I now own every one of the floral DSP packs that Stampin’ Up! offers!

    Garden Wishes – Wishing You the Best

    Another card from the Dandy Garden Suite Collection using the beautiful designer series paper also called Dandy Garden DSP. Again I used the Dandy Wishes dies to make the wildflower cuts and paired the gold and blue hues together. Also introduced is the Misty Moonlight ribbon which of course, matches Stampin’ Ups! paper and ink. Just touching the die cuts makes me feel like I’m in a field of flowers — enjoy!

    Quite Curvy – Made With Love

    Another card using the Quite Curvy stamp set and dies. I am really enjoying the versatility of this set. Notice the intricate cuts on the curve of the die, just so pretty. Made with Love just for You is one of my favorite sayings, so I just had to use it here. This card could also be used for Valentines Day. Again I used the amazing Fine Art Floral DSP as well as the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.

    Quite Curvy – Thinking of You

    This is my first attempt at using the Quite Curvy dies new to Stampin’ Up! They are so pretty and amazingly easy to use. I paired them with the Fine Art Floral DSP (what’s not to like there) and voila — a lovely card with new and interesting details. The DSP papers are so beautiful on their own, but many demos have started using our new gold leafing embellishments to highlight the florals. I’m saving that for another post, so stay tuned! Just two reminders — don’t forget to order your new Spring mini catalog as well as place an order to be enrolled in my annual Birthday Club! Check…
