STAMPIN' UP! - Swallowtail Butterfly


With so many new things coming out all the time (that I think I have to have), I tend to neglect some of my retired stamps that are just too special to ignore.  I've been meaning for a long time to pull out the Swallowtail Butterfly.  I've seen it done several different ways, but I stumbled upon a Pinterest video for making this card.  Brandy Cox demonstrated the process in this video in 2013!  If you have this stamp, it is definitely worth watching.  The photo below shows how a second section of the wings is attached for dimension.


I love this card!  Thank you for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Blackberry Beauty DSP


This is called a "Joy Fold".  To see how this card is made you can go the blog page of Sue Prather to see a fuller picture of this type of card.  I saw one using this paper but now can't find it. I did use my own choice of designs to put on the very front.

It sounds like we're in for more snow today so I'm going to be busy making some card samples and kits for friends to make when they come next week.  Thank you for coming by today!

STAMPIN' UP! - Blackberry Beauty DSP




I've had this paper for a wile but not gotten into it like I wanted.  I saw on video using this fancy fold and the paper.....so I CASED it.  The panel on the front of mine is different because I didn't have the same pieces they had used.  These are some gold foil laser cut designs from a Stampin' Up! special set.

Thank you for coming by today!

MORE GLITTER PAPER WITH TREES


Now this one made me happy!  Once again my post was inspired by one on Pinterest.  I made changes in mine to make it my own by adding a different sentiment which I thought seemed to fit the scene.  This is my favorite one I made using these  dies.

Thank you for coming by today!

GLITTERY EVERGREEN TREES


I'm wanting to get to making other than holiday cards but I just can't seem to put my holiday things away yet.  In my effort to use some dies that haven't had any attention in a long time, I found a similar card on Pinterest but can't find it to show a link.  The one was I was horizontal with a different tree die used.  I've used this method with hearts and butterflies but never had done it with trees.  I like this one and think it will make a great card for Christmas 2022.

Thank you for coming by today!

SNOWFLAKE SPLENDOR DSP


I changed up the horizontal card I saw on Pinterest (HERE) and simplified my design.  I had a Darice  embossing folder very similar to the one from Stampin' Up! and decided not to put a sentiment on the front.

Thank you for coming by today!

LET IT SNOW


I'm really trying to use up some of the stash of retired Stampin' Up! papers.  SU keeps coming out with beautiful papers faster than I can get them used.  This is the card that inspired this one: HERE

Slowly but surely some of these papers are going to be gone.  Thank you for coming by today!
