For this cards I wanted to use the True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is one of my favorites!  The only colors included in this paper pack are Black and White, making it very versatile as it goes really well with any color!

The Color Combination 

And talking about colors, because I used the True Love DSP, it was super easy to make a color combo this time! I only needed to pick a color for my flowers and instantly I got a gorgeous color combination for my projects today!

Now you might looking a brand new color, in the color Combo, and you are right! The Polish Pink is one of brand new In-Color family that we will have between 2021-2023 when the new catalog is released!! 

Stampin’ Up! released 5 brand new colors each year and these are available for two years, but that also means that with a brand new in-color family, we also get 5 colors retiring every year.. 

But for this post I want to introduce you to the brand new 2021-2023 In-Color family! 

Introducing the NEW 2021-2023 In Color Family

Below you can see the Brand NEW color we are going to have for the next two years!  Are these not beautiful?? 

This year I just loved every single one of them! 

I think that all of these colors are going to coordinate excellent with the other family colors we have! And of course you know I love Purple, so I was EXTREMELY happy to see a purple shade in this selection! 

I was so sad to see Purple Posy retire this year, but all is better now that I have Fresh Freesia! lol.. 

And the best part of getting new new colors, is that we get a new set of brand new products that coordinate with these beautiful colors!

Below you can see how the ink pads, the markers, cardstock and ribbon coordinate beautifully..  I honestly think this is the best feature from Stampin’ Up! products.. I love how well everything color coordinates.

Introducing the brand new 2021-2023In ColorYou cannot see it in the picture, but there are other products available in these new colors, Gems, patterned paper, vellum paper and a set of ombre paper bags.. I know you will love them all!

And if you are loving these colors as much as I am, then you are going to love my brand new In-Color Club that will start in May!!

Sketches & Other Details 

But back to our beautiful Birthday handmade cards! (since I digressed)

If you can’t tell I am super excited with the new colors, that I couldn’t resist myself and play with at least one of these colors for my cards today! 

And as you know I love using sketches for my cards. I think that this is the easiest way to make cards and to find your creative mojo right away! 

One more thing to note is that for all the tulips I used an easy color technique, so make sure you watch the video tutorial in this post to learn how to add even more depth to your tulips, making them look even better!

Birthday Card #1

          sketches to play       Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

This first sketch has become one of my favorites and I am sure you might have noted that I have been using it more and more lately.. I just love how easy this sketch is for mixing and matching DSP.. So I have been enjoying using this sketch to use more and more of my DSP. 

Let’s be real, how much paper do you have??? If you are like me, you might have full boxes (😅 yes plural!) of patterned paper, and if that is the case, then using an sketch like this is the best to use as much as we can.. 

After all, you know you will keep buying more paper, the minute you see brand new paper being released from Stampin’ Up! next May 4th??? right?? lol 

Never in our lives would we say, I won’t buy more paper because I have enough!  So let’s use it! 

Plus when you use DSP in your cards, the whole process becomes so much easier, as you are letting the paper do the work for you! Boom! mic drop! 🤣

Birthday Card #2

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

For this second card, I want to point out that I embossed the basic white cardstock in the background, as this would add so much mode texture and dimension, so consider doing this when you can plain cardstock as one of your layers.. you will see how your card looks even more professional or with a nice finished touch. 

Now did you notice that in all cards, I used a double bow? Oh my gosh! I have been liking this particular detail in cards I have been finding online! ooh and I just wanted to give it a try.. 

Don’t you think it looks even nicer? Now I know a bow is already challenging, and now two? i know.. but trust me, just have a bit of patience when you are making them.. you will see is not that bad or that hard. 

Birthday Card #3

                 Learn how to make beautiful birthday cards using the Timeless Tulips Bundle from Stampin' Up!

And for this card, I actually was inspired by a card my fellow demonstrator Antonette Bay from The Paper Papillon shared in Pinterest.. 

I was browsing thru Pinterest when I came across her card and fell in love with her layout.. She used the same stamp se, however her colors were different. If my memory doesn’t fail me, she used Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and White.  

So the sketch I am sharing today is coming from that card.  

Shifting the background papers has also become somewhat popular in my cards, as of late.. I just love how making this small change makes so much of a difference in the looks of the layers.. 

The Video Tutorial

And as usual here is the video tutorial where I share how to make these cards step by step.

On this video I also share an easy technique for adding more depth to the Tulips when you stamp them, so make sure you check that out. I also provide two other color combinations using the brand new in-colors, so you can see more looks for this tulips. 

And you can see how easy it was doing the double bows for these cards.

Another thing to know is that for these cards I wanted to share card ideas using the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. This specialty paper is like a window sheet, but has a metallic look. And in this pack it comes in Pink and Purple!

Butterfly Brilliance Bundle for an easy Thank You Card

Butterfly Bouquet blog hop banner

Are you looking for card ideas using the Butterfly Brilliance bundle? Well my friend, then you are going to enjoy today’s share.. As I am going to share with you a Thank you card that is very easy to make using the Butterfly Brilliance bundle from Stampin Up!

But what is even better is that this post is part of an International Blog Hop where my follow demonstrators around the globe will be sharing even more project ideas using this bundle. So make sure you hop around with us and visit all the blogs participating in today’s blog hop. I know you will get a ton of inspiration and will have a lot of ideas to keep you crafting with this amazing bundle.

So let’s get started shall we?

Thank You Card.

For my project today I wanted to use the dies from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, mainly because I love the ones with the details!

Also these dies are stand alone dies, meaning you can use them as the embellishments. And if you know me, you know I love to use the dies to embellish my cards! So any time there are stand alone dies, I am all over them! 

How to make a quick and easy thank you card using the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle from Stampin' Up!

From my card you will see that I used the Flower for every Seasons designer series paper (DSP), as this one has so many flowers in their patters.. And I believe these butterflies would go perfectly with any of the designs in this pack! Don’t you agree?

After all we see butterflies in flower beds.. right?

Color Combination 

As far as the color combo for my card, I mainly used the colors in the DSP as inspiration.. You know I love to see at the designs in the DSP’s and pick from there a color combo from my cards. 

I love doing this and today was not the exception.. If you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try, you will see how easy this goes. 

Because I am using Stampin’ Up! products, the task to mix and match becomes so easy, as all their products color coordinate beautifully. So once I have decided the color combo, then it is just matter to pull my cardstock, embellishments and ink in the same colors to have everything coordinate. 

Like I said, this becomes so much easy, when the products color coordinate.  Do you agree?

The Sketch 

sketches to play

As usual, I used an sketch to come up with my card, here is the sketch I used!

I changed the teal circles for the butterflies, which you can change for anything you want! This is the part where you should have fun and change it to whatever you want. You can use flowers, or any other shape your heart desires. 

This is why I love using sketches as they really provide me with a visual inspiration that I can change in so many ways.. Just give it a try! Challenge yourself to use one sketch to come up with 5 different cards. You will see how little by little your mind starts getting creative as you try to change things around..

If you give it a try, please let me know how you liked the experience and if you found it helpful..

I always love to hear what you think of sketches and if you found them helpful to create your cards. 

Other Card Details 

As mentioned I wanted to use the Flowers for Every Season DSP, but in all honesty, this paper pack is soon retiring, and so I was playing with the scraps I have left over in this pack. 

And while looking at the scraps I realized I had the Piece of DSP with the circle in the middle, so I just cut this piece to fit the card.  I also cut a piece of the flower pattern to fit underneath. and then I cut two other strips of the bumblebee DSP to add to the borders.. all of this was really just using scraps from this pack!

Do you save your scraps? I definitely do, but I also love to go over the scraps and see how to use them in cards, rather than cutting a brand new sheet.. 😁

And for the butterflies, I actually die cut them in Basic White cardstock, and then I used the wink of stella to add the shimmery look in all the butterflies. I then glue them with the glue dots just in the body section of them. And to finish them up, I added the gold glimmer enamel dots in its body. 

As far as the sentiment, you can see that the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle does not have sentiments, so you can use anything you already have. In my case I used the sentiment from the Prized Peony stamp set. 

Once I stamped the sentiment in a strip of Bumblebee cardstock, I punched out the ends with tailored tag punch to make the banner shape. This is by far my favorite punch ever! I think it makes it so easy to create banners in so many sizes! 

Want to see more samples? 

Click on the images below to see a few other samples I have shared using this Bundle. Please note that the DSP that coordinated with suite has sold out, however you can recreate these cards with the stamp set and other designer series paper packs, like I did on the card I shared today. 

Finally, If you want to get any of the items I am used to make the card I shared today, scroll down this post to see the supply list. I listed all items I used with the links to my store, so you can easily purchase them. 😁 Also note that the DSP I used today is at a discount and it will soon retire, so grab it while you can still can!  As always, I appreciate your support!

Three Cute Easter Card Ideas

Blog Hop Banner - Share it Sunday

Are you looking for cute Easter card ideas to make? if so, keep reading, as today I am sharing three super cute Easter cards that you will want to make right away.

Not to mention that soon it will be Easter, so you will see these are super easy to make, so you still have time to make them and mail them in time! 

But before we start, please know that today I am participating on a blog hope that will inspire you to craft this weekend, so make sure you visit all the participating blogs! As I know you will really enjoy seeing all the projects!

All right, so let’s get starting! 

Cute Easter Card Ideas to make!

Since we are making cards for Easter, I thought the Springtime Joy stamp set would go perfect! 

I love the little bunny included in this set, and I just couldn’t resist using her on all the cards.. Not to mention this image is very easy to color if you make them white bunnies like I did 🙂

Three Cute Easter Card Ideas with the Springtime Joy Stamp set from Stampin' Up!

As you can see these cards featured mainly the designer series paper and the bunny image with a sentiment. Like I said it was pretty easy to put together these cards. 

Color Combination 

Once I had decided on the stamp set to use, I started brainstorming on the color combination to use.. I wanted to use the Rococo Rose pattern from the Love you always specialty paper pack, so I needed to have a color that would go well with it. So I thought that shades of Grey would well with it.. 

This is where the Peony Garden designer series paper came in mind.. and I picked the Smoky Slate color, since I loved how the pattern on this paper coordinated with the Rococo Rose design. 

Sketches and Other Details 

For these cards I actually used the layouts from previous cards as inspiration.. If you took my Card Making Made Easy Workshop you know that this is the first step I show you.. Select a few cards that you like and define what you liked from them, so you can create brand new cards..  And this is exactly what I did for these cards! 

Handmade Card #1

Here is the card I used for inspiration on my card.  You can see that I use exactly the same layout!  I just changed the paper and texture. For instance in the card on the left (pink/blue) the card has embossed cardstock on the two layers, and on the second card, I used instead patterned paper. 

Also the sentiment on the first card is on a designer series paper, and on the second one it is on cardstock. So you can see how one card will help you get another card, that looks totally different.. right?

If you are interested in seeing more details about the inspiration card you can find more information in this post. This post is about birthday cards using patterned paper.

Handmade Card #2

For the second card you can see the inspiration below.. 

Learn to make your own designer series paper to make these cute Birthday cards      Three Cute Easter Card Ideas with the Springtime Joy Stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The inspiration card is a card I made recently where I share how to make your own designer series paper using stamps. I loved so much the layout, that I wanted to make it again, however you can see I changed the shape for the sentiment and I made a larger banner to go underneath it. Plus I added a bow.. 

Again think of ways you can change the layouts when using a past card for inspiration.. 

You can read more about the inspiration card on this post, where I shared how to make three cheerful birthday cards from the patterned paper you create with stamps.

Handmade Card #3

And for the third card you can see the inspiration card I used.. This is one of my favorite cards I made using the Forever Fern Suite!

How to come up with card ideas easy      Three Cute Easter Card Ideas with the Springtime Joy Stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I love the texture on this card and the balance between cardstock and designer series paper. 

Being very honest here, I used this specific layout mainly because I had a smaller scrap of the specialty paper, and I new this particular layout was perfect for it.. not to mention I would recreate the same layout as one of my favorite cards.. 

If you are like me and love the Forever Fern suite, then check out this post, as I share three easy cards using this suite! I know you will love them too! 

Sketches

And here are the sketches I made from the inspiration cards, if you want to use them for future reference  😉

Ok my friend, lets get started!!!

Cute Easter Handmade Card

Springtime Joy Stamp set from Stampin' Up!

For my card today, I wanted to use the Springtime Joy stamp set mainly because it has the cutest little critters!  

You can see them all in the picture in the left. 

Are these not the cutest critters? and what is really good is that you can use several techniques to color them.. But for my card today I decided to color the little bunny with the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers. 

Using alcohol markers is one of my favorite ways to color, as you get really vibrant colors, plus you don’t see the strokes of your coloring. Not to mention that you can blend the different shades. So definitely if you have never try them, I would highly suggest to give them a try! 

I know you will love coloring with them! 

For my card, today I focused on the bunny, cause she was my favorite of all the images! 

learn how to make a cute Easter Handmade Card using the Springtime Joy stamp set form Stampin Up!

Coloring with the Alcohol Markers

For these cute little bunny, I decided to leave her white, so you can see that I used just a little of Gray Granite (light) on the outline of the bunny, to give her some dimension. 

This is also key to make your image look finished. So any time you have a white image, try to add either Pool Party (light) or the Gray Granite (light) and you will see how much difference it makes. 

I also added Flirty Flamingo (light) in her cheeks and then blend them with the color lifter, so that you can see the cheeks getting lighter in the outside.

And finally for the flowers in her head, I added Rococo Rose (both light and dark) and then Old Olive (light) for the leaves. 

You could then add wink of stella to the flowers to make them pop up even more! 

So give it a try and color using the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! (stampin’ blends). I know you will enjoy coloring a whole lot more. 

Also please know that one of the benefits of using the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up!, is that these coordinate with its color families, making it easier to color coordinate all the supplies in your card making projects or paper crafting for that matter! which you can see in my card!

The Color Combo 

And talking about color combo, I used the colors of the bunny as inspiration for my color combination. 

Once I knew which colors to use for my card, I pulled cardstock and other embellishments in these colors to make the card.. In this case I use the Rococo Rose as the card base as well as the main color for my card, mainly because I wanted to go really well with the flowers in the bunny! 

And then I just pulled the sheets from the foil paper as well as the love you forever designer series paper (DSP) in rococo rose to complement my card. And the Pear Pizzas and the Basic Black were the highlight or complementing colors to pull the card together.

The sketch

Sketches to play

As usual, you know I love using sketches for my card, and this was not the exception.

On the left you can see the sketch I used for this cute Easter handmade card. This is not a new sketch and in fact, I have used it in several other cards, as it has become one of my favorite sketches! 

The one thing I change is that instead of using a linen thread or bakers twine, I used the crinkled seam ribbon, which comes in whisper white. However, you can color it in any color you want with the stampin’ blends, so as you can see, I color it with the Rococo Rose (Dark).

This trick makes your embellishments color coordinate your projects! 

So you can see why I love the alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! These always helps me get the color coordination in all my projects in an easy way, even when I don’t have an embellishment in the color I am using.

I can always color my embellishments to make them coordinate!  So always have neutral color embellishments on hand, so you can color them as needed!

Other details about the card

One thing to point out in my card, is that I added a layer (4″ x 5 1/4″) for the card front in the same color as the card base (Rococo Rose), this helped me hide the ribbon, as well as add texture to the card.

I embossed this piece with the Tasteful textile 3D embossing folder.  This is one of my favorite folders, as it very general and would go well for any theme card, plus the texture is just really nice without being overwhelming. What do you think?

As far as the DSP, you can see how I interchange the pieces (3/4″ x 4″) from the Love you always DSP and foil, so it added a little bit of interest by breaking the pattern. 

And finally for the sentiment I use the Well Written dies to cut the Happy, and then colored the word “Easter” from one of the sentiments with a marker and stamp it on a strip of Rococo Rose, so it reads Happy Easter.. pretty easy right?.

The cut out behind the bunny also came from the well written dies. I cut it with Pear Pizzas, and the flowers with the Foil sheet.

Thank you Handmade Card using the Butterfly Bijou DSP

Blog Hop KB

Looking for Thank you handmade cards to make? if so, you will be thrilled, as I am sharing with you how to make a beautiful Thank you handmade card using the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper a.k.a. DSP

But let me also tell you, that this post is part of an international Blog Hop with fellow demonstrators across the globe!! so make sure you hop with us as you will get lots of inspiration for your next Thank you card!

So let’s get started!

Thank you Handmade Card using the Butterfly Bijou DSP

This month Stampin’ Up! released a beautiful collection called Butterfly Bouquet! which if you have not seen, keep reading, as you will fall in love with it immediately.. 

There is a new bundle (stamp + dies) and two new paper packs. The Butterfly Bijou DSP and the Natural Touch specialty paper.  (see below)

Butterfly Bouquet Suite

And as you can see all these brand new products coordinate beautifully! The Dies are amazing, as they cut out the silhouette of the butterfly as well as stand alone butterflies with all the details..  You can check this post, where I show three more samples using the whole suite! And one of these have the details butterfly as the main focal point of my card.  So you can see the full potential of these dies. 

Now, Stampin’ Up! has told us that the bundle will make it to the new annual catalog being released in a few more months, however, the paper packs will not. And these are only available on a while supplies last!  

The Butterfly Bijou DSP, has beautiful designs, and one of these sheet coordinate perfectly with the dies. You can line up the images with the dies and cut them all at once! how cool is that?

One of these butterflies is what I am using today as my focal point for the card I am showing you here.

So you can make lots of cards in a very easy way using these cut outs.  Just change the background and voila!  

You can see this other card, where I sponged a cloudy background and just added a sentiment and the butterfly and I got another beautiful card! so playing with the DSP will help you make lots and lots of cards! 

The Color Combo

Since I wanted to use the larger butterfly of this suite, I used it as my color combination idea.. 

This always helps me when coming up with color combinations.. Believe me, almost 99% of the times I use the designer series paper as the one to give me color inspirations.. and since all the products from Stampin’ Up! color coordinate, making my cards ends up being really easy! 

The Sketch and other details for this card

sketches to play

This card was the last card I made during the Card Making Made Easy Workshop, where I show how you can use the one sketch to make lots of cards, while all looking different and beautiful. 

You can see the sketch on the left. 

This is a very simple sketch, yet if you followed me during this workshop, by now you know that it is super versatile and it gives you sooo many options to modify it.. 

So in the card today, I made the circle larger to follow the larger butterfly from the DSP. Also I had to make the circle towards the middle of the card, so that the butterfly would fit in the card. 

And instead of cutting a circle from the DSP, I actually cut out the circle from the card front and added designer series paper under this layer..  That way the circle is recessed.

Additionally, I added the shimmer paint diluted with Alcohol with a spritzer to make the card front to be shimmery!!  in person, this card looks even better! and I added wink of stella to the wings of the butterfly to make it pop up even more!

So you can see how easy it is to make a handmade card using the Butterfly Bijou patterned paper!  Play with it, you will see you can make this and many more cards!
