Butterfly Meets Magic

Image may contain: text

This weeks challenge I have to thank Dee Dee Tibke for the great idea for the card.  I seen it on a page in Facebook and wanted to try the technique.  It turned out so nice I am using it for my Technique Class for this month.  I hope they all like it!

Another thing that I noticed right away is that this goes perfectly with a NEW Suite that came out in the Catalog named Tropical Escape as shown below.
Tropical Escape Suite for Paper Craft and Card Making

With this Suite you can get a Bundle with the Stamp set and the Thinlits and SAVE $$$.  

As you can see in the Suite picture it also has fabulous DSP!  Of course that is what my focus was going to be for this challenge.

For the base of the card you I started with Granny Apple cardstock and cut this to 5 1/2 x 10 1/4.  Then you score this at 3" and 7 1/4".  I used the Classic Label punch to make the hole for the Butterfly.  The Butterfly was cut out throught the Big Shot using the Springtime Impressions Thinlit.  Below is the Thinlit set that also comes with a Stamp set to save you $$$$.

If I say so myself I LOVE the Stamp Set as well.

I finished off the inside with a Pc of Whisper White cardstock and a Pc of the DSP to give it a little something.  Of course you can finish your card anyway you desire.

If you would like the direction for this card I would be more then happy to share the directions that I did up for my Technique Class.  Just shoot me an email at:

Playful Background

Image may contain: text

I am so excited for this week's challenge!!!  I have new things to show you due the the NEW Catalog release.  How exciting!!

In this weeks challenge I cased a card out of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog on page 140.  I did change up the way the card did open.  If any of you know me I am into the grunge stamping.

The stamp set that I used for the background isn't new to the catalog, but I still love this set!  The stamp set is called " Playful Background".  Just think of all the backgrounds you can make with this set.  

The "Life is Sweeter with Friends like you" saying is from a new set called Detailed with Love.  This set can be bundled with a new Triple punch as shown below and you can SAVE $.  I am so glad that Stampin' Up! came out with a great corner punch again.  If you look at the punch you will notice one of the punches is a little oval, that punch is great on tags to thread through ribbon.  

  Did you notice the Gold embossing on the background and the tag?  I like when I emboss on projects, it gives it so much more dimension and the WOW factor it gives the project.  It is so pretty.

Make sure and stop by the other DOstamper's that are participating in this week's challenge.

Happy Stamping!

I am so in Love with this Bundle!!!

This is such an awesome bundle, that the DOstamper's decided to do a blog hop this week to show you how great it really is.  If you haven't seen it yet,  you have to check it out!  Right now you can choose from 3 different bundles.  And you also get FREE products!  

Once the NEW Catalog comes out on June 1st these bundles will be gone.  You will still be able to order the products, just not at a discounted price and you will not get the FREE products.  So what are you waiting for!!!

For my card I used one of the NEW In-color Grapefruit Grove and Basic Black Cardstock and ink.  What do you think of the new color?  I also used one of the tags that come in the accessories kit.  When you get the kid it has 2 different size labels that you can use.  This is the smaller of the 2.  I also used a few of the other accessories from the kit.
