TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST … 

Beautiful Butterfly (You Move Me Bundle)

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to not only share one of the amazing cards that we made at our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat but to share my very first video!! Oh my gosh … I can’t believe I finally did this, with more practice I’ll be able to create some really fun information / training videos for you!!

First, let me share the card with you. I bought this stamp set because my Mom loved butterflies, it’s sad she never got to see this (well, maybe she did ❤ ) so this card and my first video are dedicated to my Mom.   Sunday will be our first Mother’s Day without her, so I need to focus on the wonderful moments shared together… with a smile.

I can’t believe this stamp set is on the “Retirement List”!!  Don’t let this one slip by, it is so pretty and you can make any type of card with this bundle.  Below are the three cards we made with the “You Move Me Bundle” … Two of the cards were inspired by fellow stampin’ artists/ demonstrators.

The center card I credit to: Patty Bennett … she used 2 butterflies on her card, I did a single butterfly.  The card on the right, I credit to:Shelly Godby … she used the “Reverse Masking” technique on her card and I used the Marker to Block / Watercolor Technique.  Can you see how different all of these cards are … and all beautiful!!

Now … I must show you how beautiful this butterfly is in movement. Yes, it moves, it flutters!! Just click on the arrow in the center of the picture.

Well now …

I can’t create a beautiful card like this and not decorate the inside. The cute little butterflies come in the stamp set that is included in the bundle. You will need the bundle to make your butterfly or humming bird fly.

I really hope you liked this card and that you enjoyed the video!  If you did, would you please leave a comment … I would love to hear your thoughts.

Just to let you know … the beautiful designer paper used on my cards is already gone from this discontinued list.

Thank you for joining me today.

Have a beautiful day!

True Gentleman

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you doing today? I hope all is well with you.  Thank you for the kind comments to yesterday’s post, I am truly grateful for all of the amazing people I have met through my stamping and have supported me by choosing me as their demonstrator ❤ Thank You!

Today I want to share one of the cards that my retreat attendee’s got to make.  Our theme for retreat was “Caring Cards” … cards to convey our feelings for others, support, gratitude, sympathy and more. In that mix I thought I needed to add a little testosterone so I created a card from the “True Gentleman” product suite …. You can find it on pages 44 & 45 of the Occasions Catalog!

This is really a simple card to make but with the double fold it looks like it would be more difficult, not so … it’s just a smaller card tucked inside the regular size card and they open in opposite directions!!

My card base is Night of Navy and is adorned with the “True Gentleman” Designer Series Paper. This paper is so much fun … it has playful patterns and some great neutrals that will compliment the playful papers or stand alone! I chose the bow ties and glasses pattern paper to play off the “Lookin’ Sharp” sentiment from the “Truly Tailored” stamp set.

The coordinating punch was used to punch out the greeting and the mat of Tranquil Tide behind the greeting.  I cut the Tranquil Tide in half and aligned it with the greeting to show a bold background!

I really wanted to highlight the greeting so I embossed the background using the “Simple Stripes” Textured Embossing Folder. You can find that on page 5 of the Occasions Catalog with the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  I couldn’t resist adding one of the cute buttons from the “True Gentleman” Buttons … he is looking “sharp” you know! lol

Had to address the inside of the card as well …

And it was very easy to do with the sentiments included in the set.  This is a great stamp set for Fathers Day which is right around the corner … However, this is also on the DISCONTINUED LIST, so if you like it, don’t delay … get your order in before the end of May (the sooner the better) stamp sets are only guaranteed till mid May.

 

Thank you for checking in on me today, and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow… I’ll keep sharing snapshot from our stamping retreat.

Have a “Dapper Day”!!
