Stampin’ Up! Daisies, Baskets and Butterfly Basics Birthday for the Stamp Ink Paper #138

Happy Tuesday, folks – and welcome to another edition of the Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

We had a Cardmaker’s Choice challenge this week – which means….it was wide open!

For this one, I pulled out an oldie-but-a-goodie, called Butterfly Basics.  Then I added some new goodies – like the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF and the Celebrate You Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the Stamp Ink Paper challenge badge with a link so you can come play, too!

I called on The Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch challenge for a little help with the layout.

And – I played along with the TGIF Inspiration challenge, too!

So, I started with a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock and embossed it in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  Then I stamped the fern image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist twice in the corner.  Over that, I stamped the honeycomb image a couple three times in Tranquil Tide.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

With the Eclectic Layers Thinlits, I cut some leaves and a detailed flower from Vellum Card Stock, and I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  

The circular element in the sketch is done with a Daisy.  I stamped two of the large daisy images from Daisy Delight in Tranquil Tide on Whisper White and colored the flowers with my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  Then I punched them with the matching Daisy Punch, adhered them together with Liquid Glue and then to the card front.  I stuck a Clear Faceted Gem in the middle of the flower for a little bling!

I cut the butterfly with the die in the Butterflies Thinlits from a piece of Iridescent paper in the Myth’s & Magic 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper.  I lightly curled the left wing and then adhered him over the flower with Liquid Glue on his body and right wing.

My sentiment is cut from two dies in the Celebrate You Thinlits.  The “amazing” is from Lemon Lime Twist and “you” is from the Iridescent Myth’s & Magic Glimmer Paper.  I stuck the “you” down first with Liquid Glue then added the “amazing” over the top.

For the embellishments, I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.  I wanted a little sumpin’ extra so….I used my 1/8″ and 1/16″ Handheld Circle punches to cut several little “dots” from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper then I stuck them all on with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Butterfly Basics in Tranquil Tide in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added a couple of Lemon Lime Twist ferns and a stamped-off-once Tranquil Tide butterfly.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Butterfly Basics Lemon Lime Twist ferns and stamped-off-once Tranquil Tide butterfly on the front…

…and I added the ferns again on the envelope flap, then embossed the flap in the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF!

Et Voila!  Folks – don’t forget about all the wonderful stamps and dies and punches in the Annual Catalog!  It’s so so easy to do – I’m the worst about doing that!  But – just don’t!  Butterfly Basics is gorgeous!  Daisy Delight is wonderful!  Eclectic Layers is awesome!  And the wonderfulness of the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF and Celebrate You Thinits is just made all the better by using those “staples” in our tool stash!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix   

Anybody remember playing King of the Hill when you were a kid?

I don’t think I did – I was busy playing “horse”! 🙂

But – the game lives on.  And even fur-kids are playing it.

Even if they’re the only ones playing!

It’s a heckuva a lot easier to win when you’re the only one in the game!

And winning isn’t everything – but…it’s a lot more fun than losing, isn’t Little Man?
