Flight of the Butterflies


Today’s post is a nice post using the Stampin Up’s Papillion Potpourri #132058 stamp set. Cammie used a dauber to smudge the flight trail and then added the Papillion butterflies punched with the coordinating Bitty Butterfly punch #129406.  She added strips of cardstock and added stitching using the White Signo Uniball gel pen #105021 to give a faux ribbon look.  The panel was matted and added to a textured cardstock.

Floral Birthday

2014_08_14DSCI0487 Today’s post is a beautifully designed card by Cammie that features the Regarding Dahlias #130327 stamp set and then she “grunged” the card using the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 for the splatters and the blue diagonal stripes.  She also used the Papillion Potpourri #123759 for the butterfly.  Cammie colored the beautiful butterfly using the Stampin Up blendabilites Coastal Assortment #131000 and then punched it out using the coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch #127526. She hand cut a banner and added a birthday sentiment but any sentiment would work out for this card.

Butterfly Sympathy

2014_02_15IMG_0538 We recently lost our dear Uncle Rick.  My Aunt BJ and Uncle Rick had 7 boys so I needed to make 7  masculine sympathy cards for my cousins.  Masculine and sympathy cards are always a challenge for me but to make 7 masculine sympathy cards was a real challenge.  I kept the design simple and was pleased with the way they turned out and even made a few extra to have on hand and ready to mail.  For this card I used a black and white color scheme and textured the card front with the Beautiful Baroque #130917 embossing folder.  I then embossed the Papillion Potpourri #123759 butterfly and used my Stampin Up inks and blender pen to create unique butterflies for each card. To complete the card, I hand cut a banner and added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748.

If you are new to stamping, I would suggest the Teeny Tiny Wishes stampset be one of the first stamp sets to add to your stash.  If you have been stamping and don’t have this stamp set why are you waiting?  It is a wonderful set of sentiments for most occasions.

Its Fit to be Square

2013_10_07DSCI0454 I am not sure what it is about the card layouts with squares I love them and this card is no exception.  Love it!  Cammie used the Papillion Potpourri stampset # 123759 and fit the monarch butterflies in the squares and colored them.  The fun part of this card is how she used the Million and One #126377 stamp set  and broke up each section to create a very fun thank you card.  Both stamp sets are available in the 2013-2014 Stampin Up catalog.

Amazing Butterfly fun card

2013_09_16DSCI04232013_09_16DSCI0424 Today’s card is truly stunning in real life but then again most of Cammie’s brayered cards are. Cammie used the brayering technique to create the front panel and the inside panel.  The grass was stamped using the our favorite but retired Stampin Up stampset- Inspired By Nature.  Cammie used the 2 1/2 inch circle punch #120906 to punch a circle thru the card front.  She used invisible  finishing line to attach the monarch butterfly stamped from the Papillion Potpourri #123759 stampset so that it can float freely on the card.  Note: the fishing line is attached between the card front and the brayed panel to hide it.  This card took a little time to create but boy does it turn out nice for an all occasion card!

Layered with love

2013_06_24DSCI0215Today’s card is a beautiful brayered sunset that is rich in layers using products from the Stampin Up 2013-2014 annual catalog.  Cammie started off with a marina mist layer textured with the argyle embossing folder#127750.  The black apothecary label framelit #127003 serves as  the frame for the brayered sunset oval piece cut using the oval framelits #129381  The black flourish was stamped using the Everything Eleanor stampset #124164 and highlighted with the fabulous white gel pen #105021. To add dimension, Cammie added the Papillion Potpourri butterflies#123759.  The butterflies were colored using the Stampin Up Aqua Painters #103954 and then punched with the coordinating butterfly punch #129406.  The Fabulous Florets #123027 accent piece anchors  the framed sunset.  The flower was painted with aqua painters and the center was a boho blossom #119858 punch complete with a pearl and layered on top a Little Leaves sizzlet #114511 leaf to finish this layered masterpiece.

Butterfly Celebration

2013_01_06IMG_0544Happy birthday to my niece, Alexandra who is celebrating her 18th birthday today! Today’s post is  another  one of the cards that I made for my spoiled friend’s birthweek celebration in December and am just getting around to posting it.  This card has a border of hand cut Papillion Potpourri  butterflies stamp set #123759.  Each butterfly was embossed and then colored with In Color markers.  The expression is from the Seasonal Saying stampset that is no longer available.
