Butterfly Birthday Resist

I love this kind of magic resist technique!

I made a mask using the Butterflies Thinlets.  With the mask temporarily adhered to Color Me Irrestible DSP (retired) paper, I sponged Lost Lagoon ink.  I used the smaller butterfly die to cut out a butterfly from white paper and sponged the eges.  Next I cut out an even smaller butterfly from Night of Navy card stock with the Bitty Butterfly punch and adhered some pearls in the center.  The Lost Lagoon card is stamped in the background with one of the stamps from Timeless Textures.  I used the Tags & Labels framelets for the Night of Navy and DSP pieces.

Today is the last day to order from the retiring All Occasions Catalog.  I will be putting in an order tomorrow for new goodies!!  If you would like to order something, please let me know & I can share the shipping with you.

Important Alert!

I do not want you to miss out, so make sure you will
Be HERE on Wed. April 24
to view the 2013 Retiring Stamp and Accessory list
Stampin' Up!

Accessories are "first come first served" and many of the retiring colors have already sold out.
Better yet... IF there is an accessory in the Stampin' Up! catalog that you know you will not be able to live without, ORDER NOW and don't take a chance that it will be sold out if you see it on the Retiring List on Wednesday.

I got some good news this week!  THIS card I made using MDS won the color challenge on Late Night Stampers this week! 

I made several cards this weekend but forgot to take pictures of them!!  I was so focused on getting them addressed and in the mail.  I hate it when I do that.  And they were those cards you hate to make - sympathy and get well.  So yesterday when I made this card, I made sure I took a picture to share with you.

This card is so much prettier in real life.  I used a few "in-coming" colors that were In Colors at one time - Pear Pizazz and Blush Blossom.  I used the Vintage Wheel for the background.  I forget to use my wheels and they add such a nice touch.  The Blush Blossom scalloped circle was made using Nestabilities.  For the doilies, I cut my doily down the center so I could pleat them.  I punched a 1 3/4" circle of Glimmer paper and backed it with a circle of SU's Multipurpose Adhesive.  That made attaching the pleated doily much easier.  I punched the butterfly with SU's butterfly punch (oops - just noticed a little piece is missing on the bottom - guess I'll be punching another butterfly!)

Card Stock:  Blush Blossom, Pear Pizazz, In Color Patterned Stack DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink:  Pear Pizazz
Accessories:  Butterfly Punch,  Sequins, Doilies, Polytwill Old Olive Ribbon (retired), Very Vintage Wheel

Here is a card I made a couple of months ago and forgot to share with you.  I stamped the label from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake onto the Whisper White card stock and then embossed it with the Polka Dot embossing folder.  The leaves are cut using the leaves sizzlet.  I used some small pearls for the center of the flowers and colored them with a Sharpie marker.  The little blue flowers are punched with the Itty Bitty Punches and the butterfly is punched with the Butterfly Punch and some retired DSP.  I just love the way the Seam Binding ribbon ties into a bow!

Monday Mailers for February

Last week started a new month of Monday Mailers.  My partner this month is Beth - I am sending to her and she is sending to me.  Beth is a very talented stamper as well as a busy mom and teacher.  But, she got my card to me in record time!  I received it last Monday or Tuesday!  Unfortunately, I was not so swift this time.  With being out of town, I did not get her card made and mailed until Wednesday.  But it is one of my favorite cards that I have ever made.

 I used my SU butterfly punch to make the pansy flowers.  I punched Shimmery White cardstock (2 per flower).  With my Pretty in Pink marker I colored the edges of the butterflies and used So Saffron for the centers.  Then I sprayed them really good with water and crumpled them all up.  Then flatten them out and let them dry.  Glue the two together and put a little Chunky Glitter in the center.  I used the 5-Flower Punch for the leaves (Certainly Celery).  I used the Tulip Die on the white card.  And the finishing touch is the wide grosgrain ribbon in Celery and Pink!  Really spring like, don't you think?

I just love all the different elements in this vintage looking card!
