The Floating & Fluttering Butterfly bundle … Retiring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share the beauty of the Floating & Fluttering Bundle… my heart sank when I saw this on the retiring list, because that means I have a limited time to share this bundle with you! This amazing stamp and die set can create beautiful cards. Not only will I share the cards, but videos to show you how to make them.

Let’s begin with the simple “floating” butterflies …

The video will explain step by step how easy it is to create this beautifully textured card, and how I colored the butterflies.

The next card I’d like to share again is the Joseph’s Coat technique. This technique is really pretty simple yet it creates a stunning effect …

I used a little bit of a twist on this card, the wonderful “Blending Brushes”. You will fall in love with the magic of Joseph’s Coat and the pop of color this creates …

Isn’t this a fun and magic technique!! Think of the colors you could use … Your friends will be amazed when they receive your card.

They will be equally amazed at the next technique …. the Floating Frame Technique!

The Floating Frame Technique; it takes a little patience but as my friend Olivia said “I like that you get 2 cards for your effort- and they both look great! I will be trying these cards soon. Also I love press n seal- use it a lot in the kitchen and for things around the house. Never thought to use it for stamping so that just blew my mind! Thanks for the tip”

Let’s take a look at the “Floating Frame” Technique …

I hope you enjoyed this showcase of cards & videos that highlight the Floating & Fluttering Bundle and some of the cool techniques that really embrace it. But don’t stop here, there are more right here on this blog, just put Floating & Fluttering Bundle in the search box. You will find the video’s on My YOUTUBE Channel.

Then … if you decide you would like to purchase this bundle from me, I will invite you into my Facebook Classroom where I have 3 more stunning cards (with Step by Step video featuring all 3 cards and PDF – Written Directions with Photos) Use Hostess Code: JWHA6EMK This will be open until the end of April.

Floating Frame Technique Explained …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you “how to” create two cards with the “Floating Frame” technique. I have also included my video from last nights Facebook LIVE presentation. Grab a cup of coffee as I share these amazing cards with you …

The video will show you step by step how I created these amazing cards with this different technique, who knew that a common food wrap from your kitchen would be so helpful!! Let’s see the floating …

Now join me for the video … Got your coffee? Maybe even a note pad!! When you watch how I remove the film from the butterflies, it works best when you pull to the side (like I did at the end) than trying to pull up. Have a look …

I love coloring so that part of the technique was easy, and the new dies make it easy to cut them out too … I don’t even mind putting all of the dimensionals on, just takes me a while to pick them all off … LOL! Once you peel off the film it uncovers an effect as if the butterflies are actually floating.

I promised to show you a second card, one with the piece that was cut while creating the frame …

I placed the piece down onto the card front and peeled off the film just like in the video … including the Wink of Stella!! I stamped my sentiment from the Sunflower Celebrations stamp set in Melon Mambo, then added a coordinating mat and attached the entire front to the Basic White card base. Here is a close up …

So what do you think? Is this your kind of technique … Will you be trying it? I’d love to hear from you, please comment below. I think the Floating & Fluttering Bundle is an easy way to start learning how to make these cards because the are mainly joined together.

I enjoyed making these cards … I’m going to love sending them out I thank you for joining me today, I hope you have an amazing day!

Birthday Messages …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Tuesday to you! Yesterday I shared a card that I created using the Many Messages bundle from the Jan. – June Mini Catalog. This is such a fun way to stamp sentiments … one stamp, one die cut and “many messages”!!

Today’s card was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed in White…. then I used the Blending Brushes to apply Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape and Marvelous Magenta. Wipe off the excess ink and see the white emerge beautifully. I tried a damp sponge technique on this card … not sure if I like it or not; What Do YOU Think?? Do you like to “dry brush effect”?

Next up is applying the sentiments … earlier I put the stamp on the Stamparatus and stamped out several different colors, then die cut them and tucked them into a stamp case for safe keeping until I need a sentiment … on this card I used several different colors to make the card even more fun! I layered the cardfront onto a Basic White mat and a Gorgeous Grape card base.

What I do love is the fun colorful background … so many happy thoughts in white, and then our Birthday sentiments highlighted bold and bright. And a butterfly from the Floating & Fluttering Bundle to bring a little added joy.

I thank you for stopping by to visit today, I hope your Tuesday is a good one.

Be Strong, Be Brave … Many Messages

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we enter a brand new week … a new month … and I’m sharing a NEW Stamp Set!! I’m really excited to share this fun bundle with you, it’s the Many Messages bundle and it is created to answer your “sentiment” needs!! It has something for every occasion …

This amazing bundle not only has all of these sentiments, but it has a die to cut them all out for you!! You can do what I did … I put the stamp onto my Stamparatus and stamped them in different colors, cut them out, and saved them to use on any card at any time!

For today’s card, I stamped the card front with the full stamp and embossed it in white. I then choose a couple of sentiments from my stash and spotlighted those on the cardfront….

By embossing the cardfront this way, it adds a nice texture and subtle look to the front. The images were stamped in the coordinating ink to match the mat which really pops the sentiments … highlighting them.

A simple card with a big statement … you can create anything you’d like. I also brought in the Floating & Fluttering bundle to add some warmth to the card, just because we all love butterflies! They are pretty and they hold a special meaning in many of our lives.

A little Wink of Stella to the wings and your card is complete…. just mail it out and let someone know that you support them, or wish them a happy birthday or anniversary … so many to choose from.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into this bundle, I will be back to share more fun things you can do with it.

Thank you so much for joining me today.

I hope your week is a good one ~

Two-Step Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another card and a video using the Floating & Fluttering Bundle. I will show you how to use the Two-step Stamping technique with a minimum of ink pads!! This is a great tip for new stampers who don’t have it all … yet 😉

Join me for this short video, hopefully you’ll catch a few more tips and techniques to use in your stamping …

Oh my gosh … don’t you just love those butterflies! The dies were designed to make these butterflies look like they are floating, and if you didn’t catch it in the video, I have a close up here …

The colors I used were the Highland Heather, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana … if you want to pair these colors to create a darker butterfly you could add Gorgeous Grape, Terracatta Tile and Bermuda Bay.

You could always add a touch of color to the edge of the wings like I did in the video. Either was these butterflies are quite stunning …

I hope you will join me for my Butterfly Class … you will learn even more about these butterflies. I have a private Facebook page for the class, there you will find even more samples!! Join us …

You can order your bundle by CLICKING HERE … once I receive notification, I will contact you with more information and a link to the Class Room.

Thank you so very much for joining me today. I hope you have a beautiful day ~

Butterfly Cards & Class Announcement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a special card and video to share with you plus a class announcement for the beautiful “Floating & Fluttering Butterfly” Bundle. Last night on my Facebook LIVE, I shared a sneak peek at this amazing bundle. I used the Joseph Coat technique as it emphasizes the beauty of the butterflies.

I added a little twist to this card … a brayer is usually used to create this technique, however I chose to use the fun, new Blending Brushes! I am hooked on these … they are the “Cool New Tool”. The video will show you step by step how I got the stunning colors. Go grab a cup of coffee or whatever and sit back and enjoy the next half hour as I show you how easy it is to make this card.

What a fun way to get color and what a great card to send a friend … it really is a WOW card! My granddaughter couldn’t wait for me to show her how I did it. I can see her getting a little ink on her fingers and making cards for all her friends.

Besides the video, I want to share an opportunity for a class using this amazing bundle. I will show you how to incorporate the fabulous butterfly dies with these beautiful butterflies. The CLASS IS FREE when you purchase the bundle + from me using the specified Hostess Code … your total will be a minimum of $50. This way you will get to choose a FREE Sale-a-bration item as well.

I will be creating a Private Facebook Group for my attendees, and we will meet on Thursday, March 11th at 6:30 pm for a LIVE Class. You will get your “Card Kit” prior to the class which will include the cardstock, die cuts & embellishments along with PDF’s of each card with full color photos and Step by Step instructions. The sooner you order your bundle, the sooner you will get it … remember to use the HOSTESS CODE (7T4QCE92) prior to the Feb. 26th, 2021 deadline.

You may purchase the “Card Kit” for $15 if you pick it up at my home, or I can mail it to you for the cost of $20. Remember, we are not allowed to “pre-stamp” for card kits … I can only die cut. So it is most beneficial to have this bundle. If you cannot attend the LIVE Class … the video’s will be in the Private Class page for you to view anytime after the LIVE class. Plus you will have your PDF files.

This little beauty is just the beginning … I can’t wait to show you even more, and would love to have you join me in this class. You will be able to ask questions while we are stamping. Please let me know if you have any now.

Thank you for hanging out with me today (and last night for my LIVE) …

Have an amazing day ~
