Watercolor Butterfly Basics

I decided to start typing my post on the train on the way home. There something about the train at 10:00pm, it’s much louder than it should be! I had a very nice visit with my friend Greg. It was so nice to see him, it has been way too long. We had a nice dinner at a diner not far from where he is staying on 52nd Street. We both had a bacon and blue cheese burger with fries and really good coleslaw and a delicious pickle!

So I gave you a little sneak peek of my card that I made with some of the new goodies from my Catalog Pre-Order and as promised here is the entire card! I used some Basic Black Card Stock for my base. The background is a piece of Watercolor Paper. All of the stamped images are from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set*. I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizzaz and used a paintbrush that I kept pretty wet to brush across the paper. I think that it’s really cool the way that the green tinted the paper but left the leaves brown. The image down the left is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the greeting in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon is flagged and adhered across the bottom with Fast Fuse. On top of that is another one of the images heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and adhered with some more Fast Fuse. The butterfly is cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits*. I adhered the die cut to some Vellum Card Stock and cut around it with my Paper Snips. I used the new Bermuda Bay* and Pear Pizzaz* Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the back side and adhered it to the card with some Glue Dots. A quick brush with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the body for a little sparkle! To finish the card I used one of the Gold Basic Metal Buttons with some Linen Thread tied in a bow. I love the elements in the stamp set, so many different ones all with an eclectic feel to them! I hope that you enjoyed your sneak peek at some of the new goodies from the upcoming 2015 Occasions Catalog. Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing Thursday! 🙂

Fab Friday 56

I do love a Friday don’t I?! Nothing special about work yesterday, it was just work. I came home and got to see little Daniel. His bump on his head is healing nicely. Still running all over the place with abandon, still as cute as can be! My friend Heather deemed last night wine night so I went over to her house and had some Layer Cake Malbec, delicious. We watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower and discussed life. Always a good way to spend an evening. Tonight I have my friend Danielle’s mum’s 50th Birthday party, I am being picked up so that will definitely be a good time! 🙂

This Friday is a Fab Friday and this time around we have an interesting color combo…

Fab Fri 56 12-05-2014

As promised I used the new set that we got at the Occasions Catalog reveal to make a fun and simple shaker card. My card base is a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock. I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to make the shaker by cutting a piece of Whisper White for the base, some Old Olive for the frame and a piece of Window Sheet. Some Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Cherry Cobbler is punched out with the Confetti Stars Border Punch to fill the shaker along with some 2013-2014 In-Color Sequins. The tag in the middle is from the One Tag Fits All Stamp Set* and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Bermuda Bay. I used the Note Tag Punch to punch it out and the 1/8″ Circle Punch to make a hole for my Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine to go through. I stamped the gem on Vellum with Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The back side is colored with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers and then I cut it out with my Paper Snips. Some very tiny slivers of Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the tag. A fun simple shaker card to let someone know how much you appreciate them! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday color challenge and your sneak peek at the new set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog! Stop by the blog and take a look at the rest of the design teams projects and upload one of yours to the gallery! Thank you very much for coming buy and I wish you all a fantastic Friday! 🙂
