Today’s birthday card features some 3D magnolias! They are beautiful and easy to make with the Magnolia Memory Dies. Below is a video that shows just how to make these pretty flowers.
This die set contains 16 dies, and they are wonderful!!
The paper behind the magnolias is a piece of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Don’t the magnolias just pop against the paper?
The sentiment is from the new Butterfly Wishes stamp set. It fits perfectly inside the card stock punched with the Tailored Tag Punch. The angles of the punch contrast nicely with the rest of the card.
You can make the magnolias ahead and have them ready to put on your cards. I’ve curved these petals upward with a bone folder to give them more of a 3D look, but you don’t have to. Especially if you’re putting this card in the mail, you might not want to curl the petals.

Unicorns are super-popular right now and I wanted to make one – on a card! I was inspired by some unicorn cakes I’ve seen, and a card created by Kate Morgan. Rather than write out all the instructions, I made a video for you!
This was such a fun card to make. I hope you’ll try it for yourself 🙂
The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls used inside the flowers are DISCOUNTED right now! CLICK HERE to see them. These have been one of my favorite accessories over the past year 🙂
This is a birthday card you could use for an adult or a little girl. The sentiment works for either one!
Today’s card is a little sneak peek of a pretty new stamp set coming out on June 4th in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It’s called Butterfly Wishes, and I’ve been SO excited to get my hands on this set! The butterflies are just gorgeous! I’ve added some metallic thread under one of the butterflies and I have a NEW video to show you how I did it 🙂
Hope you feel more confident about using metallic thread now! It’s a fun way to add a little “pop” to your projects!
If you like this new Butterfly Wishes stamp set, put it on your wish list for June 4th! Our new catalog has lots of great new goodies, I can’t wait for you to see it! It will be online here on my website on June 4th. Also, I’d be happy to send you a physical/paper catalog. If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I’d love to be your Demonstrator.

P.,S. For those of you who left comments yesterday, THANK YOU SO MUCH! It was so much fun to see your favorite new In Colors! The most popular color was Purple Posy, with Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile tied for second. And, the winner is: NORMA RENNIE! She chose Purple Posy and I will be sending her the Purple Posy card! Yeah!
The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set is one of my favorite sets in the annual catalog 🙂 I like it because it has some GREAT birthday sentiment stamps, and some cute flowers and balloons which are just right for birthdays!
You can see what I mean on today’s card: the sentiment is cute, and the flowers and leaves are adorable! The flowers and leaves were used to create a stamped background. It’s fun to create your own background on a card and it’s easy! Here’s a video showing you just how to do it!
Now you have even more options for your stamp sets! I like this because my cards are even more “coordinated.” And using just a few colors really emphasizes this coordination!
Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green are beautiful colors on their own, but combined they are woo-hoo!
For this card I’ve created a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel that sits on top of the card base. It’s the panel that has become my background. Then I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock and a piece of Whisper White card stock. The Gorgeous Grape piece acts as a frame for the Whisper White piece. This is the piece on which I stamped the sentiment, along with a few green – well, they’re not leaves, but maybe foliage?
Isn’t this a quick and easy birthday card? You can use any colors to make lots of birthday cards! I love to do this to have cards on hand!

Today’s spring birthday card features 2 beautiful Designer Series Papers and the versatile Leaf Punch. Leaves can make a big impact on your handmade cards and today I have a NEW video showing you how to create 3D leaves for all your spring floral projects!
Now that you know how to make the leaves, let’s take a look at the rest of today’s card! The flowers have been cut out of the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (FREE with a minimum order this week – the last week of Sale-a-Bration).
The flowers and leaves are sitting on a Whisper White stitched oval which is attached to a stitched rectangle of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Daffodil Delight. This paper has been on backorder, but is due in any day now. It is SO pretty! Under the gingham is another stitched rectangle, the same size, cut from Daffodil Delight card stock.
Under the rectangles is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock which has been embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It adds just the right amount of texture!
What’s better than wishing someone happy birthday – with a pretty little cake? That’s just what this card does with the Piece of Cake Bundle! This bundle has been so popular…the punch has just come back in stock and I’m not sure how long it will be available. So if you like this bundle, grab it while you can!
It’s so fun to choose one of the cute cake stamps in this set and then color it. Here I’ve used a Blender Pen and two ink pads, Poppy Parade and Petal Pink to color in the flowers on the cake. Just get a bit of the ink on the tip of the blender pen and color! Easy! To top the cake, I added a little butterfly cut from Poppy Parade card stock with one of the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies. And what do you think about the cute cake stand?
The sentiment is from the Well Said Bundle. It has lots of great word stamps and dies that you can combine to create sentiments. For this card, I stamped the word “HAPPY” in Lovely Lipstick ink on a tiny piece of Whisper White card stock.
Then I cut the word “birthday” from Whisper White card stock using the die. I also cut the same word out of Lovely Lipstick card stock and layered the white piece on top of the Lovely Lipstick piece, offsetting it just a bit to create depth. The two words are attached with dots of Multipurpose Glue.
The background paper is my favorite Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper. Remember, this paper will only be available until Mach 31st. It’s our biggest sale of the year and the only one where YOU get a FREE GIFT! Earn a FREE, exclusive product every time you spend $50 or $100.
