Stampin’ Up! Fluttering Butterfly Basics for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  I’m writing to you from Savannah, GA today – and will be for a few more weeks.  I’m all set up with all my stuff – including my Stamp-N-Storage Combo Ink Pd Holder!  You can perhaps imagine the looks I got as I schlepped all my stuff into the hotel yesterday! Fortunately, one of the sweet guys I work with followed me to the hotel and helped me do the schlepping!  I haven’t unpacked yet.  Baby steps! 🙂

My card for today uses – obviously! – the same sketch that all the ladies used.  So…you may see a lot of butterflies as you hop around! 🙂

I used the Butterfly Basics bundle (with the Butterflies Thinlits) and the big and beautiful Fluttering TIEF.  Fortunately, these are both staying with us into the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  I teamed them with the Birthday Bouquet DSP….which is not carrying over.  So – if you love this paper as much as I do – grab it while it’s still around! Anyway – take a look-see:

Triple Butterfly Basics 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
I started by SNAILing a piece of that Mossy Meadow Birthday Bouquet DSP to a panel of Blushing Bride card stock to form the card front.  I edged the card stock with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker.

For the white portion of the card, I laid a piece of White Corrugated Paper sort of cockamamy on the card front, and lightly drew a pencil line on the back to show where I wanted to cut.  Then I did – with my Stampin’ Trimmer!  Very scientific.  I did the same for its Blushing Bride mat.

Triple Butterfly Basics 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Before I SNAILd that corrugated paper to its mat, I ran it thru the Fluttering TIEF, making sure that the DE-bossing side of the folder was on the ridged side of the panel.  With that done, I SNAILd it to its mat and then to the card front.

The sentiment is a strip of new Flirty Flamingo card stock, stamped in Mossy Meadow with the sentiment from Butterfly Basics. Then I punched the banner end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I cut a Blushing Bride strip a little bigger, edged it with the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and SNAILd them together – and then to the card front!

Triple Butterfly Basics 2 - Stamps-N-Lingers

The butterfly was cut with the middle-sized die in the Butterflies Thinlits.  I first cut one from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. And one from Birthday Bouquet DSP.  And I couldn’t decide whether to put the DSP flutterby on top or on the bottom.  So I solved my dilemma by cutting a second Birthday Bouquet DSP butterfly! 🙂

I stuck them all together with….a tiny little Handheld Stapler staple! When I stuck on the strip of Pearls Basic Jewels…..no one will ever know there’s a staple there.  But that Glimmer Paper isn’t going anywhere! 🙂

Triple Butterfly Basics 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Before I stuck the butterfly to the card front, I used my Bone Folder to roll the wings a little – I rolled the top of the wings up and the bottom of the wings down.  I don’t know why…. 😉

I used some Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere my triple butterfly to the card front, added one tiny Pearl to the sentiment strip, and the card front was done!

Triple Butterfly Basics 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers
For the inside, I used a panel of Whisper White card stock and embossed one butterfly in the bottom corner.  To do that, I laid the panel over the butterfly I wanted in the Fluttering TIEF.  Then I gently rubbed my thumb over it to sort of start the impression.  Then I used the Scoring Tool from my Simply Scored board to finish embossing the butterfly.  In case you can’t see it in the picture – the butterfly is DE-bossed….

Triple Butterfly Basics 7 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Then I SNAILd it to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Flirty Flamingo card base.

Triple Butterfly Basics 6 - Stamps-N-Lingers
And, finally, I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

Triple Butterfly Basics 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
For the Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped one little butterfly from Butterfly Basics – in Flirty Flamingo.  A Flamingo Butterfly.  Hmmmm…..

Triple Butterfly Basics 8 - Stamps-N-Lingers
….and added a liner from Birthday Bouquet DSP, cutting it with my Envelope Liner Framelits.  Have you got yours, yet??  They’re leaving us, you remember! 😉

Triple Butterfly Basics 9 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Et voila!  Veyr simple to make, folks.  The hardest part was getting the geometry right and that wasn’t really all that hard!  The DSP and the pretty butterfly do all the work on this one!  Hope you like!

  4. Stamp the word “Home” in Whisper White Craft ink on a piece of Basic Black card stock and cut to size.  SNAIL to the star.

Stampin’ Up! Marquee Messages Shaker Card for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  We’ve got a color challenge today – we were asked to use Pool Party, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede.  Be sure to check out how all the ladies in the hop use these colors in their projects today!

12279068_1305624036130835_7849498222386249654_n
It took me a while to make this card this week.  I’ve been cropping and watermarking and posting new catalog sneak peek pictures.  And – the card I planned to make wanted a new item from my Pre-order.  So, I had the card started and then was waiting for my goodies to arrive.

And then they did.  But so did the notice that my tomatoes and pepper plants had shipped and will be here today!  So, spent most of Wednesday mixing soil and getting the raised beds ready.  And they are!  And, it was way too pretty a day to spend it inside – even to stamp!

So…what was I waiting for in my pre-order?  One of the items that caused a ton of excitement at OnStage last week.  Something that should be so…insignificant…and yet is kind of huge!

Foam Adhesive Strips - Stamps-N-Lingers
Can you see what that is?  That, my friends, is a package of Foam Adhesive Strips!  You’ll get a package of strips – all about 10 – 11″ long (2 sheets per package).  The strips are little – maybe just over 1/8″ wide? – and are double sided.  And they make making shaker cards a snap!

So – using these strips, and a new available-1-June stamp set called Marquee Messages, I combined the colors of the challenge, the new stamp set and some old friends from the current catalog and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:Marquee Messages Shaker Birthday 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
So – I started this one by stamping the Marquee image from the Marquee Messages stamp set in Versamark Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Then I sprinkled it with love Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image.  I fussy cut it – to include the inside.  Just poke your snips thru the middle and then carefully snip your way to the inner edge.  Heat embossing makes fussy cutting easy!  I gave the image a little color with my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker.
