Crafty Creations Mother’s Day

Well what a week it’s been.

Just to cap it off, today the pressure was on with a surprise on the inside of our card. I created a real challenge, with the little butterfly floating above the card.  CC Mother's DayInside butterfly

We used the pretty flowers from Flowering Fields, (Retired)  and stamped them onto a 7cm circle then coloured  them in. The small butterfly was popped up.

A piece of Blushing Bride was scored in half for the base card.

Butterflies  from Papillon Pourri  were randomly stamped inside on Wisteria Wonder.  The Whisper White was scored at  1″ 3¾”and 4½”  folded then cut with smaller circle on the fold.

Two butterflies were stamped in Melon Mambo and glued back to back onto a piece of Window Sheet. This was inserted under the fold and glued at each end, to give the floating effect. The White card stock was then glued to the center of the Blushing Bride leaving a small gap either side of crease to allow card to close.

As you can see the ladies added various greetings and these were stamped onto Wisteria Wonder in Memento.  With a piece of Washi Tape across  behind the circle, a bow and found heart button  the card was complete.CC April22 Centre Pic

If you look closely you will see one lady chose her own design and a little heart from a chocolate. Well done Rose! Good to see individual creativity.
Till next week.

Launch for Pretty Paper Patterns

Hello people. A few blogs ago I mentioned that Vicky and I were taking another adventure in offering you more easy ways to create.
Well! Today is the day you can get your hands on our New Pretty Paper Patterns Tutorials.


What are we offering? What’s in it for me? What can I do with them? I hear you question.

Since coming into the creative world of Stampin’ Up! card making, one of the things that has impressed me is the amount of beautiful Designer Series Papers or DSP for short that is available.
So like most of you I have my “Stash” and yes some I had been reluctant to cut into, they are so beautiful. Others I wasn’t sure how to use. Some colours/patterns “just weren’t me” so were wasted. Well not any more! I now know exactly what to do to showcase both my cards and the DSP.

When you join us you too can feel this confidence and reassurance that it all works together.

These Tutorials will showcase DSP while at the same time teach you how to create pretty cards using DSP in different ways. Remember you don’t have to have the same DSP as we have used. Use what you have in your Stash as this is going to be a great way to use up all your stash.
