Simple butterflies

Oh my,  the Butterfly Gala bundle is my favorite out of the Occasions Catalog! The punch pops out both butterfly images at the same time! And the photopolymer stamps make the placement a snap! The stamps have two butterflies that line up perfect with the punch! You can make tons of them!

I used Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove among with sponge daubers to color the butterflies! Just gorgeous!

To make the Ombre look, I stamped the small solid butterfly full strength and then two more times before re-inking the stamp.  I love the Gingham Gala DSP pack and how easy it makes such gorgeous cards!  This card was made for my Sweet & Simple class.  Now I need to make a Valentine’s Day card for the 2nd card!

Winter Farmhouse

Do you love the farmhouse style? I absolutely love it! It was the first suite I was drawn to in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! The Tin Tile Embossing Folder has amazing details and using the new Galvanized Silver Foil Sheet makes it pop!

Moving on to the tree! It comes from the In the Woods dies! I love how it creates parts of the tree that are 3-D. I saw. Post on Patty Bennett’s site about using your Spritzer with rubbing alcohol and some Frost White Shimmer Paint. The results are amazing!

This picture does to do the tree justice! The Champagne Mist color is very elegant as well! (think Wink of Stella on steroids) To finish the card, I added some 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim, a Galvanized Button, some Linen Thread, and a sentiment!

This was a stamp a stack card this past weekend. I cut and spritzed the trees for them so there isn’t a log jam at the Big Shot. But the end result makes it worth it!

Confession!  After using the Big Shot for over 10 years, I have never ruined a die.  Well, I put the die and the paper on top of the sandwich.  I ran it through thinking it felt and sounded odd.  I completely bowed the die!!!!!  It was my first of 32 to make!  I cut the rest out with the warped die.  Then, I flipped it and ran it through incorrectly again.  I was so nervous!  But to my surprise, it flattened it out!  Like it never happened!  Shew!!

Lemonade!!

LBJF1502

How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer??  We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago.  This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch!  The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images.  Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  To create depth, we used dimensionals.

Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper.  To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!

Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

Petal Garden Quilt

Quilted Petal

I have always admired people who make quilts!  I have even thought of trying to make one.  But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!!  So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern.  I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.

To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches.  A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!)  Shocker!  This is the technique card for stamp club this month.
