Glimmer Birthday Butterflies

Sometimes when making a card, I wonder what it would have looked like in a different color or with a different pattern of Designer Series Paper.  I decided that when that happens, I’ll just make another!  This card came together so easily and the result was so pretty that I was happy to have two. One is already in the mail!

Stampin Up Butterfly Birthday - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

  • Both cards use patterns from Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper and the new Sale-a-Bration Glimmer paper in Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron.  This glimmer paper is so pretty and unfortunately SOLD OUT.  I hope you were able to get some.
  • I  cut a butterfly using the Bold Butterfly framelit on the Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then placed a piece of DSP behind it.
  • Two thin strips of glimmer paper are on either side.  Stampin Up Butterfly Birthday card idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup
  • A 2″ piece of Designer Series Paper was layered on the bottom and then a coordinating piece of ribbon wrapped around.
  • This layer was adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a bit of a lift.

  • The beautifully detailed butterfly was cut from the Butterflies thinlits in Glimmer Paper.  I popped it using Foam Adhesive Strips.  They are a perfect fit on the butterfly body and really lift it off the card for a sparkly 3-D effect.
  • The sentiment is from Best Birds stamp set and is stamped in coordinating ink and cut with the Tags & Labels framelits.  This is also popped with Dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is from Designer Tin of Cards stamp set.
  • A very thin strip of Glimmer paper along with Designer Series Paper pretty up the inside.
  • The photo below shows a few of the products used on both of these cards.

Lace Doilie Dream Catcher

Stampin Up Designer Tee Birthday card - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

My card share today is a special birthday card for my daughter, Lauren.  Lauren is an artist and I knew she would appreciate the Dream Catcher as well as the sentiment.

  • The Very Vanilla card base measures 4″ x 6″.  Another panel of Very Vanilla with strips of Moroccan Designer Series Paper is popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  •  The Dream Catcher was created using a new Lace Doily from the Occasions Catalog and the Layering Circles framelits.  These doilies are so pretty and quite sturdy.
  • I used Foam Adhesive Strips cut in small strips to adhere it to the card.
  • The feathers are not Stampin’ Up!  They’re from a set I purchased  awhile ago but were just perfect for this project.  I stamped them in  Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim and Cajun Craze ink.
  • I attached the feathers with Linen Thread and dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is actually two different stamp sets.  The first greeting is from Grateful Bunch stamp set and the bottom from Birthday Blossoms.  Even though they’re different fonts, they seem to compliment each other and express exactly what I wanted to say.
  • Since this was an “off” sized card, I used the Envelope Punch Board to create my envelope.
  • Here’s a breakdown of some of the key products I used for this project.

A Little Touch of Texture

Stampin Up Touches of Texture Birthday card - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Today’s birthday card is so soft and pretty…truly a very feminine card.  The pretty little spray of flowers is from the Touches of Texture stamp set and is so easy to color.  I will definitely try some other colors on these delicate little flowers. I used another flower image from this set here.

  • The card base is Soft Suede with a mat of Whisper White.  Blushing Bride and a piece of Designer Series Paper from Neutrals Collection, also in Soft Suede complete the front.
  • I stamped and cut the lace border using the FREE Sale-a-Bration set, Delicate Details.  This set has 5 pretty borders.

  • I stamped the floral image in Basic Black Archival ink and colored it with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  Some clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers for a little sparkle.
  • The image was cropped and cut using the Layering Ovals framelits and popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The birthday banner is from the Number of Years stamp set and is cut with the coordinating Large Number framelits.
  • The simple sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.
  • A few sequins add the finishing touch!

  • I think the envelope may be my favorite part of this project.  Adding another lace border from the Delicate Details stamp set to the already embellished envelope flap just upped the “pretty” factor!

I really enjoy making feminine card and know that I need to broaden my scope and make more gender neutral and masculine cards but with such pretty floral sets like Touches of Texture and the Delicate Details stamp set, it is just so hard not to keep making pretty, flowery cards.  I will step out of my “box”…soon!

Hope you liked this card and I would love to know what kind of cards you enjoy making the most.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
