Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned.

Before I get started on my card today, I want to remind you about my Double Creative Stamping Designs Rewards going on right now. You can only qualify for my double rewards until Monday January 10th at 11:00pm ET. Click Here to see my Rewards program. Today I used all Sale-a-bration items for my card. I love getting free products. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catching Butterflies Cling Stamp Set along with the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper for my card today. All these items are Sale-a-bration items and can be earned FREE with a qualifying order.

I started by stamping the girl and butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Encircled in Beauty Dies. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Bronze, Ivory, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the grass image below the girl’s foot in Soft Succulent Ink. As much as I dislike fussy cutting, I love Paper Piecing. On a small panel of Sunshine & Rainbow DSP I stamped the dress image of the girl in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered it to the girl image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the collage of butterflies from the Catching Butterflies stamp set on a panel of Simply Marbleous DSP in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the die cut girl image to the panel of DSP letting it hang over the edge a bit. I trimmed the die cut even with the DSP using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the layered panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Glue Dots. I adhered the layered card front to a Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly images from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the panel around the sentiment. I adhered a strip of the Simply Marbleous DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Catching Butterflies stamp set in Tuxedo Black on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Simply Marbleous DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
