Celebrating with Stampin’ Up!

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!



As you know it's a big year for Stampin' Up!  We are celebrating our 25th Anniversarry. This year I love that Stampin' Up! is celebrating with the return of some of our best stamp sets as well as a new image in each of them.  You can see all of them HERE.  


When I started with Stampin' Up! 10 years ago we were celebrating our 15th anniversary. I remember back then they were bringing back old stamp sets and we were just as excited.  

I pulled out my Best of Butterflies stamp set and this is a GREAT stamp set if you love butterflies. It's also perfect for your spring cards.  

Today's card I'm using the exclusive butterfly image in the set and it fit perfectly with my Elegant Butterfly punch.  

I started this card using Crumb Cake cardstock and rounded the bottom corners. I spattered the entire piece of Crumb Cake using a product you can only find in our Clearance Rack.  Do you remember this?

Tip: To achieve the Splatter look take your bone folder and tap the handle while over your cardstock.  Works like a charm.  Once you get the results you are looking for add a little Smooch Spray and your card will SHINE. It's fanstastic. 

Watch the video to see how I created the splatter: 


I embossed my Paper Doily and placed another doily behind the embossed one just to give it a little extra pop.

I did pull the sewing machine out for this card but honestly, the card went together in a matter of minutes.  It's great when you can use an image with a punch.  This makes the card process so much easier.
