Reminds Me Of Spring – Stampin’ Ups Butterflies Thinlet Die Cut


Hello Folks. . .  hope all is well.  I've been keeping myself busy making little thank you gift favors for our Mouse Race fundraiser.  I'm not sure I have mentioned this but my son and his wife have decided to try and adopt.  This is very expensive so we are sponsoring a Mouse Race and hopefully we can help them out.  It's going to be quite a night and I thought it would be nice to say a little thank you for all the support that everyone has given.



Here's a close up of our Butterfly Thinlet

Today I took a break from my boxes to make a wedding card that I need for this weekend.  I was inspired by PaperTrey Ink's make it monday segment.  I took their card layout and used Stampin' Up product.  I don't think we will ever get tired ot butterflies.  Do you? My tag was made with our Scallop Tag Topper and some retired designer paper.  Added a piece of vellum for the softer look, embossed my sentiment with Craft Whisper White and our Heat Embossing Tool.  My focal point of butterflies (3 layers) comes from our new Butterflies Thinlet Die Cut.  It is so delicate and intricate. TIP:  Use wax paper and it will make your crafting experience easier to get all those little pieces cut out.  The bottom left corner was stamped with ramdon stamps from another manufacturer.  

Just as a note, Stampin' Up has added four additional products to our Sale A Bration product line.  Check out the flyer below.  There is plenty of time yet to place your $50 order before s/h and you will get to choose a product from this year's brochure/flyer.   This sale is only one time a year and will end on March 31st, so what cha waitin' for let's go shopping.



Thanks for stopping by, I think today's card is so very spring looking and boy am I ready for a little warmer weather.  Take care and have a wonderful day.  If I can be of any help or answer any of your questions please let me know.  Toodles



Saran Wrap Technique


Hello Folks. . .  It's been a while since I last chatted with you, hope you're all doing well.  Thank Goodness for Pinterest, it's about the only thing going out there for inspiration.  I came across this card/technique the other day.  Not sure who it belongs too, but I'd like to thank her anyway.  

I just love this color combo (Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Real Rd).  I guess that's why I love fall so much.  My card base is a standard A2 card cut at 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  Next is a mat of Basic Black, topped off with a piece of Whisper White.  My stamp set is "Bloom With Hope".  I stamped my sentiment first, so I got it in just the right spot, then arranged my flowers around it. Design rule #1 – alwyas stamp in threes.  Next, get yourself three pieces of Saran Wrap, fold in the 4 corners and scrunch. Dab into the lighest color first (CC) and lightly tap all around the outer surface.  Next was another Saran Wrap scrunch and dab with (PP).  Do the same thing until you get the color combo that you like.  For the Real Red part I just dabbed inside the flowers  If you love to dab, make the color combo your own.  The butterfly is from "Papillon Potpouri" with the coordinating punch.  Once again I dabbed my three colors on a strip of WW, then stamed my butterfly and punched it out.  I mounted it on a little piece of dimensional and added a row of small pearls.  Have fun with this Saran Wrap technique.  

SAL A BRATION is in full swing and goes until March 31st  For every $50 you spend before s/h you can select a FREE product from our SAB brochure.  Spend $150 or have a workshop and you can purchase the "Bloom With Hope" set.  Stampin Up has so many promotions going on it's hard to keep up, so you can stay informed by CLICKING HERE and go to my SU web store and check out all the deals.  Remember every Tuesday they run substanial dicounts on selected products.  You never know what you can find there.  Just keep checkin' in.

Well thanks for stopping by, I hope I gave you some ideas. If you have any questions or need help shopping, please let me know.  My surgery has been cancelled for the time being, some how I came down with Celluitis on my foot.  Boy that stuff is painful.  I had a hard time walking. Take care and have fun stamping.  Toodles
