Throwback Thursday: Butterflies!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I thought it would be fun to share some cards that I have created for my blog or my stamp clubs from the past. Today we are going back to 2013, and the products that we’ll focus on are still in our annual catalog!

Let’s take a look at butterflies …

Swallowtail 4-29

The first is a card we did in my Stampin’ Technique Classes: Emerging Color Technique

  1. We sponged color – in this case, green in the center and turquoise on the rest … let dry.
  2. We then inked up the butterfly image with VersaMark and then embossed with clear embossing powder
  3. Final step of the technique is to brayer black over the entire card front & wipe off excess ink.

The beautiful colors underneath the embossed area now emerges! We then used the butterfly punches (also still available) to accent our card.


The second card is quick -n- easy and really cute!


Our background was created with the “Honeycomb” folder (still available) … the only thing you need to swap out is the designer paper! And that’s not hard because we have so many fabulous designs.


My last card share for our Throwback Thursday is ….


This card also has the “honeycomb” embossing folder and the Bitty Butterfly punch is used. The stamp set is no longer available but my suggestion would be the “Serene Silhouettes” or the “World of Dreams” stamp set… either one could be used in replacing the stamp set on this card.

As you can see, some items are timeless. You can easily create these cards again, and again.  Hope I inspired you to create with your butterfly punches … spring is in the air!

Just a quick reminder …

Hello … and Goodbye!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with your family and / or friends. I love this time of year … it is all about renewal and a new beginning.

It is also the time of year when our Annual Catalog is on it’s last months … this includes our 2014 – 2016 In-Colors. When the retirement list comes out in May – they will be gone FAST!! That is why I am reminding you now to get any paper, ink, or refills that you want to stock up on before they are gone for good.


The card may say “Hello” but soon we will be saying goodbye!  One of my customers paid around $10.00 just for a refill … order now while Sale-a-bration is still on and get more bang for your buck with a FREE Sale-a-bration item!

Here are our retiring products …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s finally Friday! Just a quick post so you can get back to your Holiday preparations.

With less than 1 week left of Sale-a-bration … I thought I would share one of my favorites with you.

Product of the Week

Perfect Pairings Stamp Set

You will see the beautiful English Garden Designer Series Paper that can be found in the Annual Catalog and teamed it with the Rose Garden Thinlits Die on page 18 of the Occasions catalog.

The focal point of the card is the greeting ….

Perfect Pairings Stamp Set
This stamp set is more than meets the eye—it’s nine pieces, but you can mix and match the greetings for endless possibilities!
Here’s what one of our concept artists said about it:
“This is the perfect set for a beginning stamper because it has a variety of greetings all in one. The greetings can stand alone or be combined in countless ways. Yes, this is a greeting set but the fonts are bold enough to stand alone so you don’t necessarily need an image set to go with it.”

Thanks so much for dropping in …

Have a Good Friday ~
