Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Butterfly Bouquet Happy Birthday!


Hi friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! This month we are sharing projects to celebrate birthdays. These projects were created by talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share inspiring projects with various design styles. You may have arrived from Sandy Ward’s blog. What a fabulous birthday project!

My project features the Butterfly Bouquet collection. I love the stamps, the coordinating dies and paper! The collection is so yummy 😊!

I loved the cards shown in the Stampin' Up! promotional materials that I had to copy them (CASE - copy-and-share-everything). The inspiration for my birthday cards came from 2 cards in the Stampin' Up! resource below.
I love these cards!

I started with the card on the far left. It was an easy card to assemble with just three passes through my Cut & Emboss machine. The Butterfly Bijou designer series paper (DSP) (available while supplies last!) provided the butterflies (first pass) and the watercolor-look squares. The Natural Touch specialty paper (available while supplies last!) is thin enough that I could die cut to add the "worm holes" to all 3 rectangles in one pass - sweet time saver when each piece has 2 "worm hole" die cuts.

The Butterfly Bijou DSP again provides the lovely focal points in the next card. The DSP includes the watercolor-look paper and the 2 large butterflies that were die cut using the brilliant Wings dies. I stamped the Butterfly Brilliance for the 3 smaller butterflies. One I colored using the light Daffodil Delight Blends marker, one I colored with the Flirty Flamingo combo Blends markers, and the last one I used the Wink of Stella pen with a Just Jade ink pad. To bring out the "scratched" die cuts on the Natural Touch paper, I ran my paper piercing tool between the cuts made by the die.
