Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics
One of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is receiving a bi- monthly magazine, Stampin' Success. It is full of not only business training and teaching,but also awesome projects designed by the amazing concept artists at Stampin' Up!

Becoming a demonstrator was one of the best decisions I have ever made!!! My life has been changed and blessed because of this choice!!!
My card today was inspired by a project in the most recent Stampin' Success - they shared it as a bag - using our polka dot kraft bags. I decided to change it up a bit and turn it into a card.
So are you loving the Butterfly Basics stamp set and GORGEOUS Butterfly Thinlets as much as I am ? Ah - I just can't get enough of them!
This card has a wow factor but goes together super quickly! Here's what I did to put it together -
I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock - 8 1/2x 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.
Inks used - Hello Honey, Staz On Black and Strawberry Slush.
The large banner shape is Hello Honey cardstock and cut freehand. The smaller banner is cardstock vellum and I created the "V" shapes using my hexagon punch.
To finish the card, I used the smallest stamp in the Butterfly Basics set - it is a cute little postmark stamp - stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched with the 3/4 inch circle punch. Popped this up with a dimensional, added a bow made of gold baker's twine and my card was done!

Note: The Butterfly Basics Bundle listed below is the clear mount bundle - this bundle is available in wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer - which is great - you can choose your favorite type of stamp for this bundle. For me - I prefer the clear mount in this bundle- and if you purchase the clear mount bundle, you qualify for a free Salebration product!
Super busy day ahead - but a great day I am sure! I am meeting with a group of about 20 plus brand new stampers - one of my favorite things to do !!! And tonight some of my club ladies will be in the Bee Spot (my studio) for some stampin' fun!!
Still cold here - it is -2 - I thought maybe the schools would be closed but not the case this morning.
Charlie has cabin fever!!! He wants to get out and walk - but it's just too cold! Sorry Charlie!!! He had a spa day last week - here he is looking like a handsome young gentleman!!! Just love this boy!!
Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
