Customer Thank You Cards with Beautiful Butterfly Gala!

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my July Customer Thank You Cards. These were sent out to everyone who placed an online order using my July Host Code. I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set because of the gorgeous images and fabulous ‘Thank You So Very Much’ sentiment.

Let’s Make It…

Start with one of the Whisper White Note Cards and stamp the sentiment, in the bottom left corner, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stamp the double butterfly outline image such that it goes off the edge of the note card (also using Memento Tuxedo Black ink). Also stamp the bodies and antennae.

Use the infill stamps to colour the butterflies – I have used Blushing Bride and Petal Pink on the small butterfly and Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron on the larger butterfly.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Highland Heather cardstock. The main card front is a 13.9 x 9.5 cm piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed using the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder.

The butterflies are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then ‘in-filled’ using Highland Heather ink. Butterfly Gala is a Two-Step Stamp Set so you get extra stamps to effectively colour in your images! See my video on different types of Stamp Sets for more information. The butterfly bodies are also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then the Butterfly Duet Punch was used to cut the images out. The large butterfly is adhered directly to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A smaller die is used to cut out a piece of Highland Heather cardstock and these are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The small butterfly is adhered to the corner of the sentiment piece and the whole thing adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Glitter Enamel Dots.

Real Red Colour Challenge 3

Hello and welcome to Week 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Real Red Colour Challenge. If you missed the first two colour challenges you can find them here… Week 1 and Week 2. This week the required colour combination is: Real Red, Highland Heather and Crushed Curry.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

I decided that it was time to revisit the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Bundle for today’s project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then used two pieces of the Regals DSP and layered these on to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have used a strip of Whisper White cardstock and adhered this to the DSP. Butterflies are cut out of all three challenge colours using the Butterfly Duet Punch.

The sentiment, from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. A piece of Highland Heather DSP is cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch and these are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The butterflies are shaped slightly and adhered around the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next time…

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. Join me next week for the final instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Real Red Colour Challenge when the combination will be: Real Red, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz!

Butterfly Gala CASE The Catalogue

Hello, and welcome to the 4th, and final, week of the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Showcase. In part 3 we looked at 3D projects (you can find the blog here) and this week I will be CASEing the catalogue and creating three cards, all of which have a wonderful, fresh, spring-like feel.

Looking Back…

But first, lets have a quick look at some of the projects we have created using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Gingham Gala suite so far…

As you can see, this is a really versatile Stamp Set and Suite which allows you to create so many different projects. It lends itself to simple or complex; monochrome or colourful; and has a lovely selection of sentiments suitable for a range of occasions.

Thank You So Very Much

The first project that I selected to CASE from the catalogue was the Lemon Lime Twist card. I cut a piece of Gingham Gala DSP and used a Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Marker to add extra lines to the pattern. The butterflies were stamped initially in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White cardstock and then filled in using Highland Heather ink. They were cut out using the Butterfly Duet punch but would not be too difficult to fussy-cut if you don’t have the punch. A piece of Vellum cardstock has been cut out using the Starburst punch and a length of Whisper White Flax Ribbon layered on top. I have then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and scribbled with a Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Marker to create a background for the sentiment which was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink once the marker had dried. Once everything was adhered to the card base, I added Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala sequins.

A Little Note

The second project that I CASEd was the ‘A Little Note’ card. The card base is Whisper White cardstock and then a piece of each of the five colours of Gingham Gala DSP was adhered to this. The sentiment is stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the banner shaped was created by simply snipping with scissors. I stamped the small butterfly in Daffodil Delight onto coordinating cardstock and added the abdomen in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered to the sentiment piece. If you look carefully you can see that the antenna are stamped onto the DSP too! A length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine was wrapped a few times around my fingers and adhered to the card with the sentiment piece raised above it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is added with three Gingham Gala sequins in Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist.

Welcome

The final project was the ‘Welcome’ card which uses Balmy Blue as a base. A number of small butterflies have been cut out of Gingham Gala DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch and adhered to another piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and the a square cut out using Stitched Shapes Framelits. I stamped one of the large butterflies onto Daffodil Delight cardstock in coordinating ink and cut out using the Butterfly Duet punch. This was adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by cutting ‘welcome’ from the Well Written Framelits dies in Whisper White cardstock and adhering to the butterfly. This is a great little card to welcome someone to the family, the company, the street, or even the world!

I hope you have enjoyed part 4 of the Butterfly Gala Showcase. You should now have plenty of ideas to help to get the best out of this great Stamp Set and Suite.

Next month…

Next month my Showcase will feature the Wonderful Romance Stamp Set and coordinating Floral Romance Suite. In the meantime, if you have any questions just let me know.
