Best Dressed Sweet Friend Swap Card

Stampin' Up! Best Dress Honey Bee thinking of you card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made this card for a swap I’m participating in. I love this sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set.  I can’t seem to stop playing with this set!  It is so versatile! Check it out!

This my featured stamp of the month. (*See details below.) I have been making a variety of cards and gifts with it! Click HERE to see one of my new favorite fun fold cards.

This is one of my “go to” layouts for a quick & easy card! I chose the beautiful floral DSP from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack then chose my coordinating colors of Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink.  Here’s the measurements:

  • Card Base: Petal Pink 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1: Lovely Lipstick 3 3/8 x 3 5/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 3 1/2

I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  It is layered on Lovely Lipstick cut with a Scalloped Oval Die and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The butterfly is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamped with Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and colored with Clear Wink of Stella.  It is punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I also used the leaf punch and punched 2 from Old Olive Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock. Such a pretty combination of colors! Punches make it quick & easy!

I added some layers on the inside with the coordinating cardstock, DSP, and the matching mini butterfly.  I left it blank for a personal message but this sentiment works for many occasions (happy birthday, get well, congratulations, etc.)

My newest ABC Series, ABC Cards, will showcase cards for many different occasions. Even though I will focus on a different occasion for each letter, most of these cards could work for other occasions simply by changing the sentiment or Designer Series Paper.

If you find a card design/layout that you like, simply change it to make it work for what you want/need.  So far I have shared card ideas for anniversary and birthday. (*You can click on the images if you want to see the original posts for each.)

Butterfly Gala Note Cards

The Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of my absolute favorite bundles in the Occasions Catalog! I love stamp sets with a matching punch and this bundle can be used for many different occasions!  Obviously I’m not the only one who loves this bundle as Stampin’ Up! sold out of their initial supply quickly!  I am happy to report they are back in stock so if you didn’t get it before, you’ll want to grab it now while you can! I made two quick & easy note cards that showcase this stamp set and punch!

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 different sets of butterflies as well as solid images to add color to these beauties.  There’s also several sentiments which makes this set check off my #1 requirement…versatility!

You can choose to do a little Two-Step stamping to add color to your butterflies or color them with Stampin’ Markers or Blends.  You can even watercolor which makes for endless possibilities! I colored mine using Stampin’ Blends.

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  You can stamp and punch both butterflies at once!

I make a lot of thank you cards and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes are the perfect size for a handwritten note or stamped sentiment. I added a little Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to the front, stamped the envelopes to match and these cards were complete in no time at all!
