The Botanical Butterfly DSP from the 2019 Sale-a-bration catalog is really versatile. One side of each design is a full color butterfly based design, and the reverse is a black and white design. Some are geometric, like these dots, while others would be excellent choices for coloring. I love it when our products can meet so many needs!
We did this in one of my clubs, and some of the crafters chose to use the reverse side with the colored butterfly design. It’s just a different look, and I love that they explored their own ideas.
That little flower at the top of the cake seemed like the perfect touch to finish this sunny card. I stocked up on the black Rhinestone Jewels when they were on the Clearance Rack, and if you don’t have any you can always use a Black Sharpie to color a traditional Rhinestone Jewel.

The Happiness Blooms DSP has really inspired me. The images remind me of Marimekko, a Finnish design house that I’ve loved all my adult life. The colors are bright and the designs are cheerful, with options suitable for both men and women. It’s perfect for a suit of cards.
Stamps: Retired SAB from a few years ago (sorry!)

This card is included in my Happiness Blooms suite card class on Tuesday evening, February 5th. You’re welcome to join us – message me and I’ll fill you in on the details. But hurry, because the craft table is filling up!
I am head-over-heels in love with Bloom By Bloom, the new Occasions catalog stamp set with a definite mid-century modern aesthetic. It’s fresh, it’s versatile, and it has a gorgeous suite of complimentary products. Time for a class!
There’s a little bit of fussy cutting involved (c’mon, Stampin’ Up!, we could have used framelits on this one!) but it’s not very technical because the lines are clean. The Hexagon TIEF and the repeating irregular circles in the DSP work well together, and a sparkly rhinestone jewel is the finishing touch.
I’m offering a class focusing on this stamp set next Tuesday, February 5 at 6:30pm at my Maui home. We’ll make 6 (gorgeous) cards using simple supplies. Cost is $15 and includes all supplies except basic adhesive. Leave a comment or message me if you’re interested.
I thought an auspicious beginning to 2019 would be bold and happy color, and the new Bloom by Bloom set that debuts on Thursday (January 3) seemed like the perfect choice for such energy:
Don’t you love it?? I’m delighted to have this on my desktop all month! Bloom By Bloom is a photopolymer stamp set and it was at the top of my list for the 2019 Occasions catalog. My color palette is Pineapple Punch, Mango Medley, and Gray Granite – a perfectly tropical confection! The images are masked using sticky notes, adding a sense of depth with a single layer project.
The DIY 2019 Calendar is available as a PDF – you print and cut – for $5. If you’d like to make your own calendar, send me a message and we’ll get the calendar in your hands.
