ORIGAMI FRAMED BUTTERFLY (case’d from Cindy Brumbaugh)

01.24.19 butterfly framedOrigami is all about folds and that is exactly what we see in this cheery  Daffodil Delight card highlighted with matching gingham DSP and butterflies.  I have admired this frame technique for several years, but somehow could never figure it out.  I case’d the card from Cindy Brumbaugh who gave excellent instructions which I will share with you at March Stamp Camp.  The origami frame features a butterfly from the Botanical Butterfly DSP which is free with a $50 SU purchase from Sale-A-Brations before March 31.  This beautiful DSP has several butterfly sizes.  Note the small butterflies fluttering around the sentiment. The butterflies were punched out with the Butterfly Duet Punch (currently on backorder.)  Note the antennae on all the butterflies – a secret I will share at March Stamp Camp.

This is the third card from Bunches of Butterflies.  This butterfly Stamp Camp is being held on March 7th from 12N – 6 pm. March 8th from 2 pm – 6 pm, and March 9th from 9 am – 4 pm.  If you have a date/time conflict, please let me know and we can set up an alternate time.  The cost is $14 and includes everything you will need to make your Bunches of Butterflies

Remember that Sale-A-Brations ends March 31st.  There are some really nice offerings available thru this special promotion.  Check them out at  2019 Sale-A-Bration.  And don’t forget that I am offering a 20% discount on all SU paper products thru the end of February.  Hope to see you at March Stamp Camp

BUTTERFLY NOTE CARD (case’d from Lisa Curcio)

02.24.19 butterfly envelopeI love this envelope-style butterfly card.  The beautiful background paper is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This 12 sheet, 12 X 12 package contains 2 each of 6 double-sided designs and is only available with the Sale-A-Brations special.  If you purchase $50 of SU products before March 31st, this beautiful paper could be yours!  The DSP is slit in the center and then folded back as shown.  This is layered onto Whisper White DSP and then onto the Grapefruit Grove card.  The DSP features beautiful butterflies that coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch (on backorder).  I spent a pleasant afternoon punching out both larger and smaller butterflies to use on our cards.  The sample features a blue scallop oval layered with a black oval although any color scallop oval can be used.  The butterfly is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I have even put black antennae on the butterflies and will be happy to share my secret at March Stamp Camp.

Is this a card you would like to make?  Let me know and I will make sure to include it in your kit.  I know I asked folks at February Stamp Camp which cards they wanted to make, but unfortunately, I lost the list!

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to seeing you at our Bunches of Butterflies Stamp Camp

BUTTERFLIES & FOIL

March Stamp Camp is titled Bunches of Butterflies.  Butterflies help us remember that spring really is just around the corner – just 24 days as of today.

March 19 metal 1This is a card that sparkles.  The “Beauty Abounds Cling Bundle” provides the butterflies and the Grapefruit Grove foil sheets from the Sale-A-Bration special, provide the sparkle.  The Whisper White top layer is stamped in Merry Merlot and Grapefruit Grove and is layered on Grapefruit Grove and Merry Merlot cs.  The top layer of butterflies is die cut on Merry Merlot and the bottom butterflies are die cut on Grapefruit Grove foil.  The merlot butterflies are carefully adhered to the grapefruit butterflies and adhered to stamped white layer.  Rhinestones are added to give a bit more sparkle.  The sentiment is stamped and die cut with a stitched circle framelit and adhered to a small piece of 5/8” Whisper White flax ribbon. 

02.24.19 foil on topThe second offering reverses the Merry Merlot and Grapefruit Grove foil butterfly layers.  This card simply gleams.  The background is stamped the same as the previous sample.  Rhinestones are not added as there is there is sufficient sparkle from the foil. 

To prep for this card, there will be Merry Merlot and Grapefruit Grove foil adhered to the Sizzix adhesive sheets.  This will alleviate gluing the top butterfly layer to the bottom.

 

March Stamp Camp is just around the corner – March 7th from 12N – 6 pm. March 8th from 2 pm – 6 pm, and March 9th from 9 am – 4 pm.  If you have a date/time conflict, please let me know and we can set up an alternate time.  The cost is $14 and includes everything you will need to make your Bunches of Butterflies

Sale-A-Bration continues until March 31st.  A second release is now available with Sale-A-Bration.  You can see all the available Sale-A-Bration products at 2019 Sale-A-Bration.  My favs for the second release are:

02.24.19 emb folderCOUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER

This embossing folder is the best thing since the Big Shot!  We will be doing a card with this embossing folder in April or May.  The floral impression is absolutely beautiful.

 

 

02.24.19 100 offeringThis item is the Painted Seasons Bundle.  This didn’t “WOW” me at first.  However, as the matching dies became available at additional cost, I started seeing cards and other creative ideas that I absolutely loved.  So this has become my second favorite item from the second release.

And don’t forget that I am offering 20% on all SU paper products until the end of February.

Hope to see you at March Stamp Camp!
