Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala for CAS(E) This Sketch and Fab Friday Challenges

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Does anyone have plans for tonight?   Date night with your significant others maybe.  What ever you do, enjoy your evening.  I’ll be staying in since mine still has a broken leg and broken ribs.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set for a clean and simple card and since it is Valentine’s Day I figured I’d use some pinks for my card.  It seemed appropriate for the occasion.  Take a look.

I joined in with 2 challenges today also.  First I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #308.

Second I played along with Fab Friday Color challenge #156.  Be sure to stop by both to see all the beautiful projects made and to play along.

I started with a Blushing Bride card front and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side.

I took a small panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to the right side of the card front, up against the edge, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the small butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set 3 times on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then stamped the inside of each of the butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using my Butterfly Duet Punch (which unfortunately is currently on backorder) and adhered them to the embossed panel using Glue Dots.  I added a Black Faceted Dots to each of the butterflies and bent their wings up a little.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped 3 more butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the top portion of 2 of the butterflies and bottom portion of 1 butterfly in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the top portion of 1 butterfly and bottom portion of 2 butterflies in Grapefruit Grove Ink then punched all 3 butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies around the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on the front and back flap of the envelope.  I stamped the colors Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick on the inside of the butterflies.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Clean & Simple, Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! After all, we could not have shared all these years of creativity if it weren’t for our subscribers.
To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
