I love the Swallowtail stamp and was so happy it carried over into the new catty ... so when our team meeting theme challenge this month was 'something fun' well of course Swallowtail was first stamp to pop into my head ... and well the new In Color Coastal Cabana just makes me want to dance so put them together and well I am one happy stamper!
I made two versions of the same card for tomorrow nights team meeting to show case a clean and simple card and a stepped up option ...
The 'clean and simple' card is designed to take less than 10 minutes to stamp, embellish and assemble while still being striking and a treat for anyone to open.
It is hard to see but the great thing about the new 'ink pads' from Stampin' Up! is that they are so juicy you can quickly add embossing powder to any of them and it will stick ~ so the butterflies are embossed with Iridescent Ice!
I added some paper piercing in the one corner to balance the card out and the little stamp is the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Papilion Potpourri stamp set.
My second card is a stepped up card ... added the extra step of stamping a second image and cutting it out so the butterfly can fly off the page and of course some bling cause bling is just FUN with rhinestones and pearls on the butterfly!
If you would like to make this card for a loved one and earn free product while you are at it remember all you have to do is book a 'private workshop' and invited your friends over to your house or mine and share the joy of stampin' ... I do all the card prep for you!
