Beautiful Butterflies–again!

Pin It
I did try to resist buying the Swallowtail butterfly stamp, but it just was not possible.  It has quickly become one of my “can’t live without” stamps!  Below are a couple of cards from classes I have recently taught.

This is the 2nd card that we made using the polished stone technique that I talked about in a previous post.  The background has been embossed using the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder.  If you love this folder, be sure to order it before the end of the month as unfortunately it will not be in the new Catalogue.

This card was another rescued disaster that turned out much better than I had planned.  That’s why paper crafting is so much fun, if you make a mistake you can usually rescue it with a bit more “creativity”!  This technique is called Split Negative & it came out “positively fabulous”!
It is so easy & so effective.  First stamp the image using Versamark on a piece of Pool Party Card Stock & then heat emboss with Early Espresso Embossing Powder.   Next, repeat this using Early Espresso CS & Pool Party EP.  Now cut each butterfly in half & cut around the outside wings  (don’t throw the spare parts away as you can use them for another card).  Make a 2-tone base card & adhere butterfly to the front & back of your card.  Now add greetings & embellishments of your choice.

There is only a week left with our current catalogue so if there is something that you really want but have not yet bought you had better hurry up!  You can either contact me or pop into my on-line store.
Our new catalogue will be released on July 2 & there is some amazing stuff in it so make sure you order one off me or I will put up links to the on-line catalogue on the 2nd.
