Banners & Butterflies

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a cute little project that I wanted to share that comes directly out of our annual catalog. This is the best place to gather ideas and get inspired, you’ll always find the hottest trends.

Trending now are banners & butterflies, both of which you will find on today’s project …


The bag for our project is a “Kraft Tag a Bag” Gift Bag found on page 176. Just insert your gift (these are also “food safe”… how cool is that!) and begin layering & embellishing.

Let’s begin with our banner cut from our “Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate” … it’s new this year and really fun to work with.  Next you’ll see a ribbon layer cut from our new “Mini Striped” Ribbon – adds a nice pop of color. Layered on top of that you will find the “Delicate White Doilies” also new this year!


Now comes our butterfly die cut from our “Butterflies” Thinlits … I use these with the new “Big Shot Platform” and the “Precision Base Plate”. They work great together when using these detailed dies. “Precision Base Plate” – Not to be used with the open face die like the small butterfly, circles, ovals, etc.

Of course I used the “Die Brush” to help me get all those little pieces out of my delicate butterfly. Such a time saver … you no longer have to pick or push the pieces out of your die! I simply love it!!

A cute embellishment to top off your package and to draw out the gold dots on your “Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate” are the new “Gold Binder Clips”. They are so cute and really draw your eye to your project.


Last but definitely not least is our greeting! It comes from the stamp set “Suite Sayings” … you’ve seen me use this stamp set a lot! And … it’s done in that banner style! You can trim this yourself, use a square punch or use our new “Bunch of Banners” Framelits… Perfection every time!

So … next time you need some inspiration, just pick up your Stampin’ Up! catalog or check out my archives, either way … you’ll get some great ideas.

Thank you so much for stopping by today … Hope yours is a good one!
