This colorful butterfly card was created with Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Wings stamp set and one of the dies from their Butterflies Thinlits (both are retiring May 31, 2018 or while supplies last).  It is a new stamp set for me and I'm looking forward to making many more cards with it. The butterfly was stamped once on the card and then a second time on a scrap of Whisper White CS.  The butterfly that's on the top was die cut and then layered onto the other - applying glue only to the body of the butterfly so the wings could "flutter".  I have used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Dapper Denim inks and mounted the white mat onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Click here for a Material List, Directions and Links to SU Products used.
Live, Laugh, Love - I have always loved that sentiment, so when I saw a Recollections die set at my local Michaels with those dies, I had to have it.  And as several products in the 17-18 annual catalog for Stampin' Up! are retiring on May 31st, I decided to buy their Bloomin' Love stamp set and coordinating Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies, before they were gone, to combine for this lovely card.  What a great set for Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary cards.  I cut the heart out of some pink pearl paper and mounted it on a tiny dotted pink paper I had in my stash.  The tiny die cut flowers for stamped in Pink Pirouette ink.  And added some White Perfect Accents embellishments. This is an A7 size card.Click here for a Material List, Directions and Links to SU products used.
