Today’s project is quick, easy and I think it’s quite eye catching.
It wasn’t me who created that beautiful water color background, it was Stampin’ Up!. The top layer is simply a card from the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Card Pack. You can create your own projects in just a few minutes. Cut a few card bases as I did for this card, or pick up the matching Delightfully Detailed Note Cards and Envelopes use your imagination to create a bunch of beautifully detailed cards. And, of course, don’t forget the bling! The coordinating Faceted Dots add the perfect finishing touch.
Here’s another sample of a card using the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Card Pack. I did get a little carried away playing with the paper patterns and just had to use that grid paper!
The Card pack includes:
- 50 double-sided cards
- 6 single-sided laser-cut specialty cards
- 4 sticker sheets
- Coordinating colors: Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, and white.
So, grab your favorite layer, add a card base and a little bling and create something simple and sweet!
A very special friend is celebrating her birthday on Friday. I thought this card would be a perfect way to say “Happy Birthday”.
The Basic Black card base and layer make a nice neutral canvas for the beautiful colors in the patterned paper. The patterned paper is from “Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series Paper and is one of the selections in the Designer Series Paper Sale going on now at Stampin’ Up!. The patterns range from pretty, delicate florals to colorful, bolder stripes and dots. I used Powder Pink card stock as an accent color for this card. That Gold Faceted Gem adds just the right amount of sparkle.
So grab your Basic Black card stock, add some pretty patterned paper and a bold sentiment, crop a few flagged banners, and create something amazing!

Here’s a clean and simple birthday card that you can put together in just a few minutes. This card is just stamps, paper and ink… and your Big Shot will get a good work-out.
This project showcases the Flower Patch stamp set from the current Annual Catalog. The Flower Patch stamp set features large images which are perfect to create the clean and simple collage look I wanted. I quickly and easily cropped all the images with the matching Flower Fair Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.
Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand is one of my favorite color combinations. They’re both cool and soft, but because the stamped flowers are large and bold, I thought I needed a little pop of bold color. Sweet Sugarplum was my choice. It works beautifully with both Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is stamped with Sweet Sugarplum ink onto a hand cropped flagged banner.
I layered my stamped elements onto a cropped Stitched Square and attached the focal point to my card layer with dimensionals. Easy, easy, easy…
So, crop a few large flowers, bunch them all together, mount them on a square and create something bold!

Every time I walked past my craft table, I looked at the beautiful 6″ X 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack just sitting there. I had to use it… the colors and sparkle are so pretty. The glimmer paper was my inspiration for this card. Unfortunately, my photography doesn’t do it the justice it deserves.
It “sparkled” so beautifully, I thought it would pair nicely with the “Love Sparkles” stamp set and that led me to my “Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies” which led me to the “Sunshine Sayings” stamp set. So, now I had my supplies but I wasn’t sure what I would do with them. I realized the flower from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set matched nicely with the small floral die from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits. My card was born… a clean, simple and versatile birthday or congratulations card with lots of “sparkle”.
There’s only a few days left for Sale-A-Bration and the Glimmer Paper is no longer available, but you could replace the colors with Blushing Bride, Silver and Gold Glimmer Paper… I think that would be a beautiful combination on a Blushing Bride card base.
So that my flowers would balance the sentiment, I had to use three. One flower wouldn’t have been enough to balance the size of the sentiment and two didn’t give me the “anchoring” I wanted. Three worked perfectly, but I wanted to mask the third flower into the bunch,
I’m sure most of you know what “masking” is, but here’s a quick how to:
- Stamp the image you want to “mask” onto a sticky note getting as close to the edge where the sticky side is (sticky side down).
- Fussy cut the image on the sticky note. (For this card, I did this twice).
- I stamped the Mint Macaron flower in the bottom left corner, stamping off the edge slightly.
- Next I stamped the Bermuda Bay image above and to the right of the Mint Macaron image not allowing the images to touch each other.
- I placed one sticky note image over the Mint Macaron flower and one over the Bermuda Bay flower as precisely as I could.
- Then, I stamped the Sweet Sugarplum flower over both covered flowers so it would only stamp in the area between the covered flowers.
- It looks like the Sweet Sugarplum flower is behind the other two flowers.
So, pull out some glimmer paper, add a little sparkle and create something fun!
