I couldn't let this set disappear without featuring it. I created two very similar cards using two different color combos. I combined it with the new Biggest Wish stamp set.
For the sentiment on both cards I did fussy cut around the outside lines of the word Thanks and popped them up with dimensionals.
I had to make sure this card got a little sparkle too so I used the Misty Moonlight and silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.
For the Just Jade & Gold ribbon on this card I frayed the ends for a different look.
I'm on a Night of Navy kick all of a sudden! I like how it pairs with the subtleness of the Pale Papaya.
The Butterfly Brilliance Collection is so versatile and cool! It includes one large stamp with one large die to cut all the butterflies at once. Plus a lot of individual butterfly dies as well.

Coloring the stamped butterflies with Blends is another fun way to use this set. I love the pops of color! Plus, anytime I can use my Blends and get some color therapy in is a good time for me.
I also used my Blends to color the white seam binding ribbon to match the card colors.
Don't miss out of this special early release because you can only get the beautiful Designer Series Paper now! It will not be included in the annual catalog.
My favorite pieces of the paper are the sheets that include these butterflies that can be cut out with the large die! How awesome is that?
No fussy cutting required so after die cutting you can quickly create cards.
The Stamparatus is particularly perfect for this large single stamp. If you don't get it inked and stamped perfectly the first time you can reink and try again knowing it will be in the exact same place!
If you are looking to make super quick and easy cards the Memories and More Card Pack combined with Assorted Memories and More Cards and Envelopes are the perfect answer. In these samples I've used the Dandy Garden Memories and More Card Pack and Cards and Envelopes.
Simply adhere a 3 x 4 card and a sticker to the base and you're done! Could these be any easier? No ink and stamps needed! You can use the 4 x 6 cards as well.
Plus, these cards are designed specifically for pocket scrapbooking so you've got multiple uses.
I can't get enough of the Sweet Strawberry bundle and the new Blending Brushes.
The new Blending Brushes are a fun and easy way to add a little color to your card. Simply blend starting in a corner and work your way up to add subtle color. It took me a few tries but I think I've got the hang of them. I recommend tapping off after adding ink and before applying to your paper.
I also love the look of white embossing on black paper.
The strawberry I punched from the Sale a Bration Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This is a Level 2 product and is probably my favorite from this years offerings.
I once again used Old Olive ink and the Blending Brushes but without adding red it changes the look. Simple but elegant!
The upcoming early release of Butterfly Brilliance should not be missed! This suite is amazing. Featuring one big stamp with one big die to cut out all the butterflies it's one you are going to need.
Although the stamp set and dies will be featured in the upcoming annual catalog the Designer Series Paper can only be bought during the early release. Available starting March 2.
This card is easy to make when using your Stamparatus. Using the Stamparatus is helpful if any of the butterflies do not stamp fully on your first attempt. Simply ink them back up and try again!
I'm off to recreate the card in multiple colors!
I originally overlooked this bundle in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. I have to admit I have a lot of flower sets already so my initial thought was "oh, I don't need another". Until I realized that the dies are all stitched! Now I can't get enough of it.
Each one has so much detail! Plus, when you pair it with the Paper Blooms Sale a Bration paper it gets that much better. This fun fold was one we did at my Bingo events last week.
It also offers some great sentiments in a pretty font.
I love the new blending brushes. With just a little practice and pressure you can add subtle color to your card. Mango Melody is such a pretty color!
The sentiment is from a retired stamp set but it was perfect for what I needed.
The vine from Sweet Strawberry was perfect to layer on top of the subtle color from the blending brush.
Twine is always my go to. I reach for it way more than ribbon and I don't know why! I just love it. It's not bulky and adds the right touch to so many cards.
A little coloring on this one using my Blends.
There are so many great dies with this bundle but I really enjoyed simply using stamps on this one.
Simple but bold! This is my kind of card.

If you don't have the right color ribbon for your project don't forget that you can color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Ribbon with markers. Simply run the marker across the ribbon and it will soak up the color. In this instance, I used the light Poppy Parade Blend to create the shade I wanted.
I love the versatility of the Curvy Celebrations suite. Adding just a little color to the birds gives them a watercolor look. I CASEd this card from The Stamping Ninja.
I am so excited for this upcoming class where we will be making what I call "giftables". I've done these types of classes around the holidays for a few years. Gift card holders, candy holders, boxed sets of cards and even a magnetic frame one year.
My favorite part of this project would be the leaves. The stitching on these beautiful dies is gorgeous. It's actually quite easy to put together. The color inspiration came from Hershey kisses I found wrapped in this color palette!
Adding a quick tag finishes off the project.
The Plush Poinsettia Paper is the perfect touch to this project. You can see the flocked designs in this photo. There are even parts of the paper that can be die cut with the Poinsettia Dies. I layered Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper underneath, created a quick tag and tied it off with All the Trimmings ribbon.
