You don’t have to be a creative designer to make a handmade card. Some of the most beautiful cards come from simple stamping.
Last night was my team meeting and the cards we made were beautiful and actually quite simple. We copied 2 ideas straight out of the newest Stampin’Up! publications.
We made the adorable treat packages found on pg. 8 of the Occasions Catalogue:The complete list of products used are right on the page so you don’t even have to go looking! They really DO make it easy. If you are looking for a cute packaging idea for Valentines Day, this would certainly fit the bill. And these images in the Hey Love stamp set are not just for kids! They’d be perfect for your fellow book club members or co-workers as well:)

The other idea we copied was from the Sale-a-bration brochure on p. 8:The background is just strips of cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and adhered flat with SNAIL adhesive. Simple, right? I used a tiny, tiny amount of Tombo Multipurpose Glue to adhere the wooden butterfly element.
And it’s always nice to make the inside of the card look pretty too…
Once again, all the supplies are listed right there. But this time, this project uses an item that you can get for free. When you buy the products to make the projects shown there, you’ll qualify for the free Sale-a-bration item used: Butterfly Elements.
The greatest thing about the Butterfly Gala Bundle is that it includes an amazing punch that punches out both sizes of butterflies at once! And the details on these butterfly images are gorgeous. I’m not even a butterfly person and I love this bundle. There are so many other options available if you like to keep things simple. Our kits for example are perfect if you like things all cut and ready for you. Contact me and I’d love to help you choose a crafting experience that is just right for you.
