The Butterfly Brilliance Collection is here! Have you seen the card samples created with these new products? I received my bundle/suite of products Saturday, ripped open the box, and started creating! Let me show you some of what I made. Be sure to watch the video (a replay of a Facebook Live) to see how I put these cards together.
What is the Butterfly Brilliance Collection?
This brand-new selection of products features butterflies, lots of butterflies. It includes a stamp set, coordinating dies, 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, and textured specialty paper. An early release of goodies that will be included in Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog, this bundle screams spring. I just love the product coordination of this sneak peek! (New Annual Catalog available May 4.)
The entire bundle ($71.25) includes:
- Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set. This large stamp makes a great background, but allows you to crop a bunch of butterflies quickly and easily. (I recommend buying an extra stamp set to cut apart; it allows you use to each butterfly individually.)
- Brilliant Wings Dies. You have the option of simple die-cut butterfly shapes, intricately detailed die-cut butterfly wings, or layer both styles to create wonderful 3D dimension! Get creative with how you color the spectacular wings with a range of inks and sponge daubers.
- Butterfly Bijou 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Choose from glorious butterfly patterns in shades of aqua, pink, and yellow or watercolored patterns that coordinate beautifully. You can’t go wrong with these unforgettable patterns. I love how some of the sheets coordinate with the die cuts. Only available while supplies last. Note: This 6 x 6 DSP will not be available in the upcoming catalog.
- Natural Touch Specialty Paper. The pale wood grain is versatile enough for any project and any time of year. Emboss it and use it with dies. Use large pieces of it as a background or cut out pieces to use as accents. Only available while supplies last. Note: This specialty paper will not be available in the upcoming catalog.
Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. Receive a 10 percent discount when you purchase the stamp set and coordinating die cuts together.
I used a few other complementary products with this fun suite, including the Stamparatus, Art Gallery stamp set, and coordinating card stock colors.

Happy Fourth of July! Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends June Blog Hop.
Thanks for joining us on this blog hop! We’re featuring a variety of cards and projects demonstrating what’s going on in our corner of the world. Follow the list of hoppers at the end of this post. Be sure to leave a comment.
The 4th of July doesn’t rate as one of the top card-sending holidays. But, why not? I have the supplies, so make the card and send it.
I used a bunch of Stampin’ Up! products to make this festive and celebratory card come together:
- Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, and Whisper White Card Stock
- Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
- Nature’s Thoughts Dies
- Stitched Stars Dies
- Comfort and Hope Stamp Set
- Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set
- Classic Label Punch
- Misty Moonlight Classic Stamp Pad
Headed to a party? Give this cute 4th of July treat to a party hostess. Or make a bunch for your own party guests. I decorated one of Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and filled them with holiday themed jelly beans.
These 2 x 2 Clear Acetate Boxes make perfect receptacles for a variety of treats. I used the same supplies for this package as the card. I added the Misty Moonlight In Color Ribbon to top off the package.
All of the supplies used to create both the card and the treat package are found in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring a wedding wishes card and gift card holder!
Thanks for joining us on this blog hop today. We’re showcasing cards for grads, dad, babies, and brides. Visit all of the blogs to get a host of creative ideas for upcoming celebrations. All of the links are listed after the project descriptions. Please leave a comment; we love to hear what you think of our creations.
The Wedding Wishes Card
I really wanted to use Stampin’ Up!’s Detailed Heart Die, purchased with the intent of creating Valentine cards. But that didn’t happen! I couldn’t let the season pass without using this beautiful die.
The card features:
- Detailed Hearts Die with Gold Foil
- Gold heat embossed sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set
- Die cuts from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies
A comprehensive shopping list is included at the end of the post, after the list of hoppers.
Wedding Wishes Gift Card Holder
This is such an easy gift card holder to create. (I had forgotten all about this style.) Here’s how it goes together.
- Start with one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes. I used Very Vanilla for this project.
- Fold the envelop in half and score.
- With the flap facing you, use a Paper Snips to trim the top right corner.
- Moisten the remaining flap and seal closed. The right side now becomes the holder for the gift card.
- Decorate the front and inside cover.
Here are some of the materials I used to create the gift card holder:
- Very Vanilla envelope
- Very Vanilla panel embossed with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
- Gold Foil Heart die cut with a heart from the Stitched Be Mine Framelits
- Heat-embossed (gold) sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings
- Classic Label Punch
- Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder
- Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon

Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape
Tucked on page 172 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog is a really cool product — Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. It’s a two-roll package, but the one roll is so different than any other washi tape I’ve used before. It peels off in petals so you can create your own flowers! How fun is that?
I started with a white 1/2-inch circle and peeled the petals off the roll one by one. I affixed the centers onto the circle until I had created a flower. You can use the embossing buddy on the back of the flower to prevent the flower from totally sticking to your paper. One roll contains about 100 petals allowing you to create anywhere from 16 to 20 flowers per roll, depending on how many petals you use.
This card was inspired by a journal decorated by Ellen Woodbridge. I easily turned it into a card using other fun Stampin’ Up! products including a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, Pearlized Doilies, the Leaf Punch, Classic Label Punch, Subtle Embossing Folder, and Faceted Gems.
