Weekend Class/Workshop - Project #3 - Painted Petals Card

You've seen a different version of this card on my blog previously, but I changed it up for this class when the butterfly framelits used in the previous 2 projects went on backorder so I could add a project with a different stampset...this time, Painted Petals.  We also used the Hello You thinklets to cut the word 'you' out of a piece of coastal cabana...we then masked the word 'you' off of the stamp 'You are amazingly amazing' to create a neat effect. The flower images were stamped in the following in colours which will be retiring at the end of May (which makes me sad...they are some of my favourite):  Coastal cabana, strawberry slush & crisp canteloup...the edges of the vanilla stamped piece are sitting on strips of washi tape placed 1/8" from either side of the card base.

Butterfly Basics Class/Workshop - Project 2 - Butterfly Basics Card

This is the 2nd project from the class/workshop I hosted on Saturday.  Again it features the Butterfly basics stamp set & coordinating dies.  The card base is Crisp Canteloup, the printed flag banner is from the Typeset dsp pack, the pink flag is Strawberry slush.  The larger butterfly was cutout of gold foil with a butterfly framelit and the smaller one was stamped in Coastal Cabana and then cut out with the coordinating die & then a cut out of vellum with the same die was used to overlay.  The project was finished with a piece of Crisp Canteloup thick Bakers Twine.

Yesterday I hosted a class/workshop and this was the first of our 3 projects.  We made this basket using the Berry Basket die from the Occasions catalog and then decorated it with a paper doily and butterflies from the Butterfly Basics Bundle.  The basket is lined with the free DSP you can earn during sale-a-bration (Best Day Ever).

Note Card, Butterfly Basics - Card 3

One final note card from my playing around with the  butterfly basics stamp set & collaging & my new favourite thing...the Hello You thinklets (which I cut the hello in gold foil out of:)  I got some inspiration for this one on pinterest.  First I created a heart mask & then I stamped a collage of stamps from Butterfly Basics.

The last 3 days I posted 3 different note cards with the exact same supplies:  Butterfly Basics stamp set, SU notecard set (in white)...the only thing I've varied are ink colours...yet each card is miles from the other...that's just one of the things that I luv about creating!!:)

Note card, Butterfly Basics - Card 2

This card was completely inspired by Shelli Gardner & a card & video she made...I went way over board on this one with embossing & sponging and all the little details that I possibly could:)

Again, it's just a note card from the set you can get form SU, but it looks completely different from yesterday's card...so versatile...same stamp set (butterfly basics) as yesterday too...and more collaging:)

Note card, Butterfly Basics Series - Card 1

This past weekend as I was coming up with projects for my butterfly basics class next Saturday, I got to playing with SU notecards...don't you love them...for just $7.50 you get 20 cards & envelopes...cut, scored, ready to go.

My favourite thing about the Butterfly Basics stamp set in the Occasions catalog is how well it works with collaging!  I think a lot of stampers are liking this set too...though it is the coordinating butterflies dies that have gone on backorder...one week before my class...here's hoping they are in stock again by next Saturday!

Hello Life - Birthday Card

Last week was my daughter's birthday, so I thought I'd share with you the card I made using the Hello Life stamp set.  The greeting you see above was embossed in silver on a flag I made from rich razzleberry card stock.  The base of the card is wisteria wonder & the dsp is from the typeset collection.

The butterfie both were created with the Butterfly framelits in the Occasions Catalog...the larger one was cut out of silver glimmer paper & the smaller out of Irresistably Yours dsp  which was then sponged with pool party.  The Irresistably Yours dsp can be earned for FREE during sale-a-bration!:)
