Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Friendship Card

I used the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this pretty in Polished Pink friendship card. It features 2021-23 In Colors in the cardstock, inks and embellishments. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels (inside and card front) and 4 1/2″ x 11″ (stamping & die cutting)
  • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 1″ x 4″ (die cutting sprigs)

The Creating

With Positive Pink Ink I stamped the “Friends like you” sentiment from the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set onto the top right corner of a Basic White panel and the “Hugs, Prayer, Love” on the center of the other Basic White panel. I also stamped three of the floral images on the Basic White strip.

With Soft Succulent Ink, I stamped three of the fern frond images on the Basic White Strip. I also stamped a couple on the inside panel in first generation and second generation ink. I repeated on the envelope including a third generation as well.

I used the floral outline and fern frond outline dies from Nature’s Thoughts Dies to cut out the images with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I also cut out the floral center die three times from the remaining Basic White strip. This die is so cool because you can use your Take Your Pick Tool to raise the small petals so that the color peeks from underneath! I also die cut four of the 3 leaf die and one of the 6 leaf die from the Soft Succulent Cardstock.


To assemble the card, I positioned the fern fronds and adhered the top two with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the bottom one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then added the pink flowers…the top right with liquid glue and the other two with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the white centers with dots of liquid glue. I tucked the small leaf die cuts in with liquid glue.

The final embellishment is three Polished Pink 2021-23 In Color Jewels in the center of each flower.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Thank You Card

I used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle to make this monochromatic Thank You card. I’m having lots of fun with this bundle which includes the Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set and the Brilliant Wings Dies. It is part of the Butterfly Bouquet Collection which is an early release from the upcoming 2022 Annual Catalog. I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 3 3/4″ x 1/2″ (sentiment)
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 3 7/8″
  • Vellum Cardstock: 3″ x 4 3/8″ (die cutting)
  • Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper: the two yellow die cut butterflies, 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ (inside) and 2 1/2″ x 6″ (envelope)

The Creating

  • I began by using the Brilliant Wings Dies butterfly die to cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. This large die cuts 6 butterflies, either stamped or from the DSP. I used the two yellow ones for this card.
  • I ran the Bumblebee Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the white strip and the inside of the card.
  • I cut the Vellum Cardstock with the rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. It has a sweet, dotted border which reminded me of a butterfly’s path. I attached it to the card with Mini Glue Dots strategically hidden under the images and the embellishment.
  • I adhered the sentiment strip, the inside strip of DSP and the smaller butterfly on the inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess away from the envelope flap with Paper Snips. The large butterfly on the front was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added three Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish the front.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Spring Notecard

We had a beautiful sunny day today and I am just itching for Spring. I used the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog for this card. I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Garden Green Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: Stitched Rectangle Die (approx 3 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, sentiment), 2″ x 4″ (butterfly dies), and two 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front and inside)

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped three butterflies from the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on Basic White Cardstock. I colored them with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and then die cut them with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I added Wink of Stella to the wings for a little glam.
  • With Garden Green Ink, I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangles die cut and randomly stamped the fern image on the Basic White panels and Basic White Envelope.
  • To assemble I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to apply the Basic White panels to the card base. I popped the butterflies and the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I embellished with three Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
