Butterflies seem to be really popular right now, or else they just got my attention! Stampin'Up! has had several sets of stamps and punches featuring the delightful, fluttery creatures and now they have framelits to cut out the delicate ones too! This card is inspired by something I saw on Pinterest but I tweaked it a bit using our Shimmer White cardstock. You use the remaining piece after you cut the butterfly out as your background, placed over a patterned paper. I only used a couple glue dots in the spine of the butterfly to attach it because I wanted the wings to flutter a little. Anyway, here you go:
I did not take my photo in my usual card photo spot so there is a funky shadow there, but I hope you can get the idea! What a fun and easy technique/idea!
And, today is special because I registered for the annual Stampin'Up! Convention in Salt Lake City in July.This will be my 4th year going and I can't wait! I love the camaraderie with fellow demos and friends, seeing all the new stuff and techniques, being inspired by ideas I would never have thought of and participating in all the excitement! Yippee!!!
Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
