Stampin Up Double Butterflies

Hello peeps

STAMPIN UP DOUBLE BUTTERFLIES

Have you been enjoying the butterfly basics cards I have shown this week. Todays card, Stampin Up Double Butterflies is something a little bit different.  Its an A5 card, and I have used Island Indigo, Melon Mambo, and So Saffron.  I cut two butterflies using the butterfly thinnest dies and then stamped the front piece of the card.  I left the butterflies plain, but then covered them with with dazzling diamonds to give them sparkle.stampin up double butterflies

I also created stained glass panels to fit behind each butterfly.  The itty bitty butterflies were punched out and made 3d as well.  Its such a pretty card and I know thats it on its way to a customer in Australia as i speak.

Don’t forget to look at this weeks weekly deals, there are some amazing offers.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

Hi guys

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

 

Hello lovelies.

We gone a little bit retro and vintage today with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black card.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

 

Taking very vanilla cardstock I have created my card base, gently sponged the edges with crumb cake and have then added some similarly distressed Typeset DSP.

I have added a black matt layer and then stamped onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock using Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake and Basic Black using lots of the stamps from Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set.   I have triple stamped the fern to give lighter shades of black and depth to the card.

Lastly I cut three small typeset DSP butterflies using the small butterfly frame lit, I have then cut a medium butterfly using the framelits in basic black.  These have been layered and shaped to give the effect of floating wings and finished with some basic jewels.

I have then attached this to the front of the card using glue dots.  Perfect.

My Stampin Class ladies voted this their favourite card in the card class and have all since cased it.  Its so simple to create yet so effective to look at.

Don’t forget you can get everything you need to make this cute card over in my online Stampin up shop.  Simply click my Shop with me Link in the sidebar.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

Hey Hey Everyone.

STAMPIN UP BUTTERFLY BASICS OVAL FRAMES

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames is day day 3 of my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics series.   Today I have combined it with Oval Frames and the new Brick wall embossing folder, and the itty bitty butterfly punch.

 

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

 

The base of my card is the lovely Old Olive.  One of my go to colours.  It goes with so many of our colours and always looks good.  To create my wall I have used Daffodil Delight and the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I just love this folder, it gives such a great background and I have lots of ideas that I want to try with it.

I used two of my oval framelits to create the old olive frame.  I then stamped the gorgeous “cowslip” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and used my Stamp ‘n’ Write markets and my blender pens to colour this image.

I then stamped the sentiment and the itty bitty butterflies (Again from the Butterfly basics Stamp Set) I punched these out and then punched out the sentiments using my  oval punches.

All the bits were layered and stuck using tombow and dimensionals.  I love how clean and fresh the colours are together.  What a lovely bright vibrant card to have on your mantle shelf.

And now for something completely ……….

different for me.   A few weeks ago I met up with loads of the other DC members and we had a fun day.  It was great and we made Christmas mini albums.  Well I have now finished mine and here it is……

This is the front cover

The first two pages

Then the next two

and finally the last two.
The back page is the same as the front.  We were not allowed to use any Dies or machines to cut out all the houses etc.  Each card lifts out and has three photo mats.  All the papers used were from my stash and the snowflake tops were cut by Angie.  
Previously to that I had been on a course at my local Garden Centre, Monkton Elm, and done a one day starter course on Memory Books.  This is mine from that course.
