Today’s card is simple and pretty; mostly because it’s created with a wonderful stamp set! The Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. With a set like this you only need minimal supplies, as the stamps themselves do all the work. Here’s a video showing you how to make today’s card:
Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green ink are so pretty together. You could place the stamps any where on the Whisper White panel. Here they are about 2/3rd’s of the way down the panel and a bit to the left. This allows for a small bow of Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
There are so many options with this stamp set, both in images and sentiments. I see some hydrangeas in my card-making future! 🙂
Now for a quick look at the first card on the video, the one created with Melon Mambo ink.
Pretty Pointer: You can get a different look with the use of different colors of inks. When I get a new stamp set, I usually take the time to stamp each stamp on a piece of scratch paper. And, I use different colored inks to test my new stamps.

Today’s card was created completely from scraps I had in my scrap tin – it’s true! And I’ve made a fun spontaneous video showing you my scrap tin and how I made the card. So if you’re ready to have a few laughs and learn how you can create a card from YOUR own scraps, watch this video!
Here’s a close up picture of my scrap tin. What do you keep your scraps in? I’d love to know 🙂
The Butterfly Wishes stamp set is the one used on today’s card. It’s so versatile.
The envelope for today’s card was decorated with some of the same washi tape used on the card. Just run it along the left side of the envelope as I did below.
Pretty Pointer: Add a bit of coordinating ribbon to any card to take it from ok to wow! This card would be “ok” without the ribbon, but when you add that additional color from the ribbon, it goes to “wow”!
I’d sure love to see what you create from your scraps! Remember to send a picture to me at [email protected] If I get several photos I’ll post them so everyone can be inspired!

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!
