Butterfly Basics

Butterfly Basic

Butterfly Basics is a new bundle in the Occasions Catalog and it is amazing.  This card design was taken from a swap I received at Leadership — sorry, I don't know who did it.  I tweaked it just a bit and used it for my Stamp & Go Club for February.   Everyone fell in love with this card.

The card base is Soft Sky with a layer of Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  I started with the Happy Birthday words using Early Espresso ink.  Then I stamped the flower stems using Crumb Cake.  I added the ferns by stamping off using Pear Pizzazz ink.  The honey combs are stamped with Crumb Cake — the top section is stamped off.  Don't forget the add the little butterfly in the upper left corner with Crumb Cake ink and the "postage stamp" in the upper right corner was also Crumb Cake stamped off.  Last I added the border across the card using Soft Sky ink.  I added the Butterfly which was cut out of Soft Sky cardstock using the coordinating Butterflies Thinlit Dies.  This is a fabulous card that didn't take too long to make.   Very impressive.


You’re Sweet

This is the fourth card from my You Plus Me Stamp of the Month Class.  I love this layout, the bottom half of the card opens up for the greeting or signature.

You're SweetThe card base is Calypso Coral with a layer of Crisp Cantaloupe that I stamped You're Sweet using Calypso Coral ink.  I added a layer of the Stacked with Love DSP.  I used the Sweet Heart Punch (which is on sale through Monday, Feb. 9) to punch out two Calypso Coral and one Crisp Cantaloupe heart.  Then I used the Heart Collection Framelits to cut out three Basic Black hearts and last was the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (which is also on sale through Monday, Feb. 9) that I punched three small hearts from using the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

This card was everyone's favorite card of the evening.  I think we will see many more cards made from this layout.

You + Me


Real Red, Basic Black and a Doily — what combination could be better.
You Plus MeThis was another card from last month's Stamp of the Month Class featuring the You Plus Me stamp set and the Stacked with Love DSP.  What a great combination it was.  The doily on this card just set it all off.
