More Butterflies and Blog Candy

Saturday’s Card Class Registration Deadline is today!

Scroll down for all my class  details.


I do like crafting with them.  I’m glad both Beauty Abounds and Butterfly Gala are carrying over from Occasions to the new Annual Catalogue.  I just wish the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper was available for longer than the Sale-A-Bration months.  I’m still loving and chopping it!

It’s graduation season in the U.S., so I’ve made several cards to send to friends and relatives who are graduating from high school and university.  These two are simple, yet striking.
This card I CASE’d  from Alison Solven, changing up her colour scheme from Balmy Blue to Grapefruit Grove.  The butterflies are fussy-cut from the Botanical Butterfly DSP, while the background Bokeh dots are from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.


Here’s another fussy-cut butterfly. As I know I’ve said before, I love how the black-and-white designs allow the colours to pop right off the card!
Another way to make the colours pop – this one uses the Spotlight technique.  I cut the Stitched Rectangle out of the DSP and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends, then mounted it on the next bigger rectangle  die and popped it over the hole with Dimensionals.

I’ve got still more butterflies to share on another day…
