Wonderful You Easel Card

Wonderful you!  This easel card was created using the Label Framelits.  I also used the Paper Doily to create the delicate background  for the large butterfly.  To add some sparkle and texture I used vanilla smooch and embossed with the Vine street embossing folder.  This card would also make a great mother’s day card.

I used the sketch below from Hand Stamped Sentiments which is the next challenge.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #16

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a sketch challenge from the Success May issue.  This magazine is free when you become a demonstrator.  It offers tips and advice on how to run your Stampin’ Up! business and shows wonderful project ideas.  Here is the sketch and my project for this week’s challenge.  I used my Embosslits Die Beautiful Wings, item#118138.  It’s a carryover from the Spring mini catalog.  This die is wonderful because it die cuts and embosses at the same time.  I also used the Scallop Trim corner and border punches.  There’s a very informative video from Stampmonkey and her blog also gives measurements for creating squares and rectangles with these two punches.

Flowers for Mom

I finally was able to make the roses from a tutorial on Julie Wiliam’s blog.  She gives wonderful instructions.  So make sure to hop on over to take a look.  These roses are perfect for a mother’s day card and I was also able to use my Embosslits Beautiful Wings die for the butterflies.  This butterfly die is on page 24 in the current occasions mini catalog which will expire at the end of the month.  So if there is a stamp set or die you want please order before it’s gone for good.  I used the Scallop Circle Bigz Die for my card base.  All you do is fold a piece of card stock in half, move the fold in 4 scallops from the cutting edge, and run it through.  VOILA, a card.  I am also submitting my card for PPA37 – Theme Challenge – Flowers.  Here’s my project.
