Celebrate You

There is always some reason to send someone a card saying “celebrate you”.  They may have achieved something huge, or maybe even something which seems tiny to someone else, but to them was a great achievement.  Whichever way – Celebrating You is something we can all do.


Sale-a-bration draws to a close at the end of the month and with it will go the gorgeous FREE stamp set I used to create this project (project 1 of 4).

The stamp set is Amazing You and it contains beautiful sentiments as well as the gorgeous images.  I love the flower which can be decoupaged and layered.

Teaming with older products

Dont you just love it when a new product blends perfectly with something you already have.   I totally love the “Whole Lot of Lovely” papers in the annual catalogue and loved the fact that the flower in the Amazing You stamp set matched almost perfectly.


I have also used the free Sale-a-Bration card bases (& Envelopes).  The colours are gorgeous Tutti Fruitti colours and again match the Whole Lot of Lovely paper.

The Celebrate You was cut out twice, once in Pool Party and once in Peekaboo Peach.  They were layered using Foam adhesive strips to give the dimensional look.

I coloured the flower using the new Stampin Blends, and then again fussy cut and layered onto the card front.

The ribbon is the lemon lime twist ombre ribbon.  Its super cute and so easy to tie into a bow.

I really enjoyed creating this card and the dies made adding such a cute sentiment super easy.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

Hi guys

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black


Hello lovelies.

We gone a little bit retro and vintage today with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black card.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black


Taking very vanilla cardstock I have created my card base, gently sponged the edges with crumb cake and have then added some similarly distressed Typeset DSP.

I have added a black matt layer and then stamped onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock using Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake and Basic Black using lots of the stamps from Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set.   I have triple stamped the fern to give lighter shades of black and depth to the card.

Lastly I cut three small typeset DSP butterflies using the small butterfly frame lit, I have then cut a medium butterfly using the framelits in basic black.  These have been layered and shaped to give the effect of floating wings and finished with some basic jewels.

I have then attached this to the front of the card using glue dots.  Perfect.

My Stampin Class ladies voted this their favourite card in the card class and have all since cased it.  Its so simple to create yet so effective to look at.
