Butterflies everywhere

July 7, 2012

Sudsol (a demonstrator only website) has a whole lot of challenges each week and one is a CASE (copy and share everything) challenge.  Usually it is a card shared by Stampin’ Up! in their demonstrator only magazine.   This week the challenge used a stamp set which I don’t own and also the new in-colours released in the US last month.  I decided to play along anyway using the supplies I had on hand.

My base card is Crumb Cake and I have embossed the bottom of the card stock using the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Cottage Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo.  I absolutely adored this stamp set when it was first released but it has been sadly neglected for some time.  I punched card stock to match the ink colours using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and attached them behind the Whisper White card before attaching the stamped panel to the card front.  I stamped the saying from the Cottage Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using Calypso Coral ink and attached it to Calypso Coral Card.  I used my 1-1/4″ Square Punch to create a “flag” effect on one end and using dimensionals attached it to the card front.   This is one very simple layout but I love the effect of multiple images to create the feature.

I really would love to hear what you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    Why didn’t I ever think to punch out different colored circles to make scallops on a card? How simple, yet fresh, your card is!

    This is such a clever card Kris. Love the wee circles…and of course, the dry embossing.

    Gorgeous Kris. The butterflies are so very pretty. I love your circles on the card too, along with the embossing along the bottom.
