LOVE Butterflies

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments! I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I'm beyond excited to have the honor of joining Mynn and the House of Cards team this month as a Guest Designer! Thank you SO much Mynn! Here's this month's cue card...


Regular readers will likely recall that I LOVE butterflies and the Butterfly thinlits dies from Stampin' Up! so it might not be much of a surprise that I've used the dies to create my GDT card...


Card: Strawberry Slush and Whisper White 10" x 5" folded into a square base, plus extra for the other elements
Ink: Versamark, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo
Stamp set: Painted Petals (sentiment)
Dies: Butterfly thinlits
Tools and embellishments: Hearts Decorative Mask (from Hearts and Stars pack), White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Stamping Sponges, Basics Pearls and Decorative Label Punch

Carefully inkVersamark through the mask onto a full sheet of Whisper White, then add White powder and heat it, before sponging Blushing Bride ink all over. Cut 4 3/4" square piece for the mat and add to the base.

Cut the butterflies dies and layer them up with Glue Dots along the body and carefully place onto the base with another couple Glue Dots. Once in place add the Pearls along the body.

Stamp the sentiment onto an off cut of the sponged card and punch out with the Decorative Label punch. Punch a second from more Whisper White, snip in half and layer behind the first. Attach to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Challenges...
#23 Butterflies + V is for Valentine at Butterfly Challenge

All the products I've used to create today's card are available 24/7 in my Online Shop. Click the images below to be taken straight there

  18. Hi Em, Just saw your gorgeous card over at the Butterfly Challenge, and popped over to become your newest follower. Congratulations on your GD assignment, and it's easy to see why you were asked, when looking at this lovely use of the SU thinlets Butterflies. Love the way you've combined the 2 sizes to make this stunning butterfly and so very lovely as a Valentine card. Hope you'll find time to visit me as well, and tfs. Happy Valentine Day.
