Beauty Abounds with stunning Monarch Butterflies for the start of Sale-a-bration!

Tomorrow is the start of Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue 2019!!!

Are you excited? There are so many gorgeous new products and I’d love to know what will be first on your shopping list. I must confess, I loved so much, but I had to have some self control and started with the butterflies. I just cannot live without them!

Some of our lovely team ladies took part in a card swap, which meant we made 11 of the same card, sent them to Claire who divided them up and returned 11 cards to us. The variety is amazing and to see what this talented group of ladies came up with was awe-inspiring!

Here is the one I made using the Beauty Abounds bundle; Beauty Abounds Stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Thinlits dies. I love how there are 2 dies and they overlap for that stunning two tone look.

This colour palette; Black, White & Pumpkin Pie, reminds me of the most common monarch butterflies we have here in Australia and we have had plenty of them this spring and summer!

I used my Stamparatus to setup all the stamp images to make it so much quicker and easier when making multiples of the one card – awesome!

The inside I stamped the sentiment and butterfly and rounded 2 corners of the Whisper White card stock using the Envelope Punch Board!

Colour Creations: Highland Heather in Abstract

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Highland Heather!!! This is a new colour this year and it is very pretty.

My first thought was, “oh what the heck will I feature?” and so I starred at all of my stamp sets for ages. I selected Abstract Impressions, as I haven’t used it very much but I adore the Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies that are part of the bundle saving 10%.

My colour combination is:

I glued the layers of Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather together then ran it through the Big Shot with the Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the flower images onto whisper white card. The Grapefruit Grove I stamped off once before stamping, as I wanted a softer look. The Highland Heather is stamped in full strength. I then cut the banner at the bottom with paper snips. This was glued to the embossed layers.

The features across the centre has a Highland Heather banner, some Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim. The Vellum die cut with the large floral die and some Gold Metallic Thread sits behind the purple banner. Then I added the die cut butterfly with glue and added a ribbon bow to finish it off. I also added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls across the white banner.

Here’s a close-up so you can see all those layers!

With so much going on with this card, I didn’t think it needed a sentiment, as it would take away the butterfly focal point. What do you think?

Eclipse card with Watercolour Wings

Hello Friends,

My project today is a card I made for my niece’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. Her favourite colours are aqua and pinks, so I’ve used Pool Party, Dapper Denim, Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum.

I’m not sure if you can see the Wink of Stella on the body of each butterfly, but it is so pretty in real life!

This was another card we did at my last class and the ladies thought it was so clever and so much easier to create than they imagined!

Definitely Dahlia

Dear Crafters,

Definitely Dahlia #stampinup

Today I share a card with only one colour using the background stamp, Definitely Dahlia (pg 129 AC)!

My base is Mint Macaron card stock with a layer of Whisper White card and a strip of the 2015-2017 In Colour DSP Stack.

The image is stamped with Mint Macaron ink onto the white card. This is so quick to make and super effective. I love its simplicity and how versatile, whether it be Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You or even a Farewell card!

The gorgeous White Satin Robbin tied in a knot adds femininity.

Definitely Dahlia #stampinup

I added some butterflies, using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches. The smaller butterfly was stamped first using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.

Please leave a comment below if you like my card today.

Let’s get started!

I began with stamping each of the dividers in Jet Black Stazon.

Tin of Cards

Then I stamped the cute little border around each of the dividers with Mint Macaron ink to match the colour of the tin!

Tin of Cards

Now I have the dividers sorted, time to get making the 16 cards, 45 of each design.

This first card is all pre-stamped except for the banner which I stamped with Mint Macaron ink.

Tin of Cards

I cannot tell you just how quick and easy these cards are to make and the instructions are very easy to follow.

This next card I adhered the yellow strip and then stamped the crosses above and below. I stamped the happy birthday with Stazon ink and added the gold glimmer heart that was already punched for me!

Tin of Cards

Sorry about the reflections in this card, but that gold is so shiny, it was impossible not to get reflections. The hardest part about putting this one together is getting the twine to sit exactly how you want it behind the circle image!!!

Tin of Cards

And for the last design, has to be my favourite because it has butterflies!

This one was a bit more stamping, but still super easy and I love the look of this one.

Watercolour Wings Note Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share my Watercolour Wings note card with you. This is my newest stamp set and I am so excited to share this with you. I am absolutely loving this stamp set and the bonus is, that you can also get the coordinating dies, so no need for hours of fussy cutting!!! Purchase them together as a bundle and you save a further 15%.

I am using the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes pack. These packs are awesome for quick cards, and they are slightly smaller than the usual A5 cards that I make. These note cards are pre-scored, thicker card and you get 20 cards and 20 envelopes in a great value pack for only $10.50.

Let’s get started!

My base card I have left white and added a couple of banners which I punched with the new, must have, Triple Banner Punch. You can create three different sized banners, 1″, 1-1/2″ & 2″. The larger banner uses the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack and the smaller banner is the brand new Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Watercolour Wings

I stamped the butterfly onto Whisper White card, starting with Marina Mist as the base, then Pacific Point, then Island Indigo at the last layer. These stamps are photopolymer, so they are completely clear and so easy to stamp one on top of the other in a 3-step process.

I used the coordinating Bold Butterfly framelits to die cut it out, and the smaller framelit with the Gold Glimmer Paper.

Watercolour Wings

I used Tombo Multipurpose glue to join the butterflies together. On the back of the larger butterfly, I added a small strip of Fast Fuse and some gold metallic thread. I just bunched it up into loops and held it to the fast fuse. How cool is that!

I added the butterfly to the card with dimensionals!

What do you think of my card? I was very pleased with the outcome. I would love for you to leave a comment also.

Hexagons & Butterflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I share something which I have never used before…. the Stampin’ Up! Notecards and Envelopes pack!

I have no idea why it has taken me so long to find these and start using them, because if I knew how wonderful they were, I would have been buying them years ago!

In the pack, you get 20 cards and 20 envelopes. The card size is 12.7 x 8.9cm and the envelope is 13 x 9.2cm. They come in Whisper White or Crumb Cake.

CRUMB CAKE NOTE CARDS & ENVELOPES Price: $10.50
Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes by Stampin' Up!
WHISPER WHITE NOTE CARDS & ENVELOPES Price: $10.50

Anyway, today I have used the white ones along with the stamp sets, Six-Sided Sampler and Gorgeous Grunge. The Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set and the Hexagon Punch can be purchased as a Bundle, saving you 15%.

Hexagon Six Sided Sampler Stampin' Up!

I stamped the hexagon images onto Whisper White cardstock in Pool Party, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake inks before punching them out with the Hexagon Punch.

Hexagon Six Sided Sampler Stampin' Up!

I also punched out an Elegant Butterfly (Pool Party) and Bitty Butterfly (Gold Glitter).

I stamped the gorgeous grunge splatter image first, then layered the hexagons and the 3 across the centre are added with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment next before adding the strip of Gold Glitter and the butterflies.

This card was made in 5 minutes and so easy to construct. Why don’t you have a go and purchase some of these notecards and envelopes!
