This week I was playing around with the new 3 step butterflies, called Watercolor Wings (page 75 of new SU annual catalog) I used just the one stamp you see top right in the photo below on the vellum card stock then cut out with the coordinating framelits (page 172)
I crack up at how we all say “I already have butterfly stamps” and then we buy another one! Must be like owning 3 pairs of black shoes that all do the same thing, just a little bit different for the perfect outfit.
I used the new Metallic Thread for his ‘antlers’ (page 159). I thought it would be heavier but it’s like a fine hair, super strong but very light.
There is a new embossing folder called Elegant Dots. (page 174, 6th one over) It’s classy and has a tight pattern that balances the large butterfly. I used the new heavy Whisper white card and it’s really nice! We really really needed a heavy white stock for white cards. (see page 149)
I used the new Expressions Natural Elements, which are wood veneer words (see page 160)
They come natural but I versamarked them and added gold embossing powder. The first word I snapped in half as I pressed it into my versamark pad…don’t do that:) Instead use a sponge dauber or tap the ink pad on top of the words, then powder and heat!
Since I’m using it as a wedding card, I added an embossed greeting inside to make it more special. See the new framelits? They are called Lots of Labels on page 173. I used a larger one on the front of the card to put all the elements on.
New also this year are gold/silver foil doilies!
Shiny and bright, sturdy and both colors come in one pack with different sizes in the package. (page 148 at bottom)
Great deal on the Pansy Punch if you don’t own it yet! And the satin ribbon I used on the card above it on sale, that’s convenient!
Thanks for taking time to stop by!
