Beautiful Butterfly

Holy hannah I love the new butterfly has probably gone through my Big Shot 500 times, no joke. Would this not be perfect for a butterfly-themed wedding or shower?!? Sooooo flippin' pretty. A butterfly tip: to make them look like they are flying off the card, adhere the butterfly to the CS with a mini glue dot or dimensional in the centre of the butterfly and fold up the wings.

Paper: kraft, old olive, pretty in pink, melon mambo, choc chip, Sweet Pea DSP

Here is a yummy card using my current favorite color combination: kraft and chocolate chip and my current favorite stamp set: Tiny Tags. Inspired by the talented Kimberly VanDiepen, the heart treat cup is filled with chocolate sprinkles that I found at Dollarama. Kim's love for buttons and linen thread is starting to rub off on me. I suppose I should work on my hoarding tendencies and start sharing those buttons I have collected. Sigh. Sharing my accessories is hard to do.

Stamps: Fine Flourish, Tiny Tags
Paper: kraft, choc chop
Ink: choc chip
Accessories: sweetheart treat cups, large heart punch, med jewelry tag punch, hemp twine, linen thread, button latte, perfect polka dots embossing folder

Happy Valentine's Day to the greatest Stampin' Up husband ever

Originally designed to be my sweetheart's Valentine's Day card, I liked it so much it became the project for my February stamp clubs. The hardest part was keeping him distracted during the stamp club while all my girls were making it! And yes ladies, I did not ask him for it back...he gets to keep this one all to himself. So thank you Andy, for letting my girls invade our living room twice a month, sometimes more...I so so appreciate it.

Stamps: Well Scripted
Paper: real red, very vanilla, basic black
Ink: real red
Accessories: XL 2 step bird punch, scalloped heart of hearts embosslit, fine flourish texture plate, vanilla hodge podge hardware, designer label punch
