It's the last day of Sale-A-Bration!  Which means it is the last day to earn the Designer Series Paper that I used in this card & treat below!  It is also the last day to get this stamp set & coordinating punch, More Than Words & Story Label Punch, as part of the Sale-A-Bration Coordination fun!  So let me know if you need any help getting these cute things in your hands!  Because look how cute this little bundle is:

Cardstock/Papers Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Watercolor Paper, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

I'm kind of in love.  The butterflies were SO. MUCH. FUN. to make!  Want to see how I did it?!  First, I just watercolored on a piece of Watercolor Paper in Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green:


Then I just stamped my butterflies:


Punch out and VOILA:


Fun rainbow butterflies!!!  😍😍😍  Here is the card again:


I LOVE the greeting on this!  It is from the More Than Words stamp set. There is that big "Wishes" stamp, and then there is another stamp that adds the detail to the bottom of the big "WISHES" word.  So I just stamped that with VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Love!!!!


I seriously love these butterflies SOOOOOO much!!!!


This little chocolate treat that coordinates has my heart as well.


I love the gold detail on this punched piece.  I punched it out, and then just swiped the Story Label Punch piece with VersaMark ink.  Then added some Gold Embossing Powder.  SOOO cute!


Add some ribbons and some butterflies and you have a fun little topper to your treat!  PS...yes...I curled this ribbon.  It is the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Pack.  I just wrapped it around a pen, and then heat set it a little to set the curl.  Kinda love this little detail.

I hope you enjoyed these projects!  Please let me know if you have any questions or need help ordering any supplies to help you make your projects!!!

Pineapple Punch Bloom By Bloom...

I love a good card with bright colors.  Well mix bright colors with the fun bold blooms of the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set (item # 148820)...and sign me up!!! This card makes me so happy!

I have to give a shout out to one of my fellow Artisan Design Team members.  Mikaela Titheridge designed a card close to this that I just fell in love with.  (Check hers out on her blog HERE!!!)  I was so grateful that she said yes and allowed me to CASE her!  Thank you Mikaela!!!!  😍

What do you think of these fun little flowers?!


Aren't they just precious?!

This card was simple to put together, yet packs a big punch...a Pineapple Punch!  (That's the name of the yellow color I used.  Haha.)

We made this card at the last Suite Stampin' Success event that I did.  It was a fun make & take, if you are asking my opinion.  😀

Shimmery Butterfly Love...

Guess what?!  The Butterfly Duet Punch is back in stock!!!  🙌  So why not celebrate a little and share this card with you?!  😀  I made it awhile ago and I think it is one of my very favorites...


ColorsMelon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo

Coloring these butterflies was my favorite part.  It was so easy and so much fun!  I just used a sponge dauber & ink pads--and just dabbed that ink right on the stamped butterflies.  It isn't a clean method of coloring...but you just punch it out and voila! Fabulous butterflies!  Here is a photo of the process:



Look at all those fun butterflies.  I have to also mention this Shimmery White Embossing Paste background.  😍😍😍 I LOVE it!  I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks & the paste to add those fun shimmery bricks.



Hope you enjoy this card!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  And let me know if you need this Butterfly Gala Bundle...get the stamp set & the punch!  Just a few more days to earn the Designer Paper that I used also (the black & white stripe) FOR FREE!!!  It is the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.

Basically...you cut two pieces of cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Score each of them at 1/2" & 1", with the 5 1/2" side at the top of the Simply Scored Board.  Then you just fold and adhere as shown--after you decorate your panels.  



I hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Let me know if you give this a try and make one!
