Stampin’ Up! is now offering a monthly craft kit subscription that’s perfect for scratching your creative itch in just a few minutes. Every month you’ll receive a kit that includes stamps, ink, paper and accessories, premeasured and pre cut to create a project. This card is from April’s kit that included the supplies to make 4 of these cards.
This is a great monthly Mother/Daughter activity and with the summer months upon us it’s a perfect time to order a couple of subscriptions to get creative with your kids when school is out.
It’s only $19.95 a month including shipping, and the introductory kit comes with a clear acrylic block to use with the rest of your kits. All you need to add each month is adhesive and you can cancel at any time. Join Now! (Thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator – Julie Cluff, Crestwood KY 40014)
Invite your girlfriends over every month and craft together. In April, you could have invited three friends and you each could have made a card. Or have them subscribe and bring their own kits over. What fun!!!
You’ll notice I didn’t ink up my ‘seriously’ stamp very well, but that’s ok, I think it looks like it’s meant to be that way. And be sure and use the stamps, ink and ideas to create more projects throughout the month.
If you order today you’ll get in on this month’s project! Join Now!
I will definitely miss this Just Believe stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I love the silhouette flowers and the simple type of the sentiments. These beautiful images make it super simple to create an elegant greeting card.
To create this card I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I repeatedly stamped the large silhouette flowers with Not Quite Navy. Then I brayered River Rock at the bottom and Baja Breeze from the top, then adding a little Not Quite Navy brayered from the top.
After brayering the background, I used the Label Collection framelit to cut it out this focal panel. To make the ‘just for you’ tag, I embossed the frame and greeting on River Rock cardstock and punched it out with the Large Oval punch.
The white background is embossed with the Big Shot and the Stripes embossing folder. Each layer was adhered to the Whisper White cardstock base with Dimensionals. A little, Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon adds the perfect finishing touch.
I saw three challenges at Splitcoaststampers that I combined to create this Best of Butterflies hope card – a color challenge, a sketch challenge and a technique challenge. These challenges inspired my color selection, the layout and the ribbon loops on this card. And I used the new totally clear Designer Typeset stamp set to stamp hope. It’s so easy with this new stamp set to create what ever message you would like.
Rather than adding the loops under the stamped panel, I decided to trim them to a point and attach them to the top of the panel for a little different look. Can you see the glitter I added to the butterfly wings. A little touch of 2-way glue with a sprinkle of Dazzling Diamonds glitter goes a long way to adding a little something special.

I simply stamped the stem and flower, then overlapped the greeting and punched it out with the 2-1/2″ Circle punch. I then layered that on the 3″ square card base and added a tiny pearl accent to the middle of the flower. 3″x 3″ cards fit neatly in the small square gift envelopes.
