Butterfly Shaker Card

Thank You

I can’t begin to tell you how much I learned while in New York the last few days.  I learned from two of the industries best and today I bring you my very first encased shaker card. I bet that blew your mind…LoL.  I’ll tell you all about it below, but in the meantime, I share with you two photos from my unforgettable New York trip.

SIP #7

Today’s Stamp Ink Paper #7 color challenge combined with my recent New York trip has officially brought me out of my shell.  Justin introduced me and trained me with a new tool called the Fuse.  It’s basically a heat tool that seals shaker cards.  I’m in love with it and you’re sure to see many more different type of shaker cards real soon.

Thank You

  • Encased Butterfly.  Yes, the stamped butterfly is inside of the butterfly shaped shaker card along with the silver sequins.  Here’s a video that shows you how to use the Fuse tool and make a shaped shaker card.

My Arms Wide Open.  This week I had a conversation with a friend who expressed her desire for a discount on her paper-crafting supplies, but fear a committment or a penalty if she signed up just to receive constant reminders about making sales or holding workshops.  I told her that my team is a non-hassle, non-committment, no sales requirement team.  What does that mean?  Read it  here.

Pals Blog Hop: New Hues Review

6a017ee666297a970d01b7c7aae158970b-800wiWelcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July.  This month we are excited to show off the new 2015 – 2017 Stampin’ Up! In Colors, namely, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. The In Color products include card stock, designer series paper, ribbon and other embellishments.  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Natalie Bradley at Natalie Bradley Events, number 18 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Butterfly in Flight

Todays card shows you my two favorite In-Colors, Delightful Dijon and Watermelon Wonder.  My blog logo is a butterfly and it’s the only reason I used the Butterfly framelit with Delightful Dijon card stock….my two favorite things.  The sentiment came from Watercolor Wings Stamp Set and it’s another favorite of mine too.  I chose this sentiment because yesterday my husband had surgery on his skull and as I sat in the waiting room I began to think about all the little things he does for me.  He brings me Twinkie’s when he goes grocery shopping and he brings me snacks and drinks when I’m in my craft room.  It’s the little moments like those that matter  a lot to me.  Hence, the reason I used this sentiment!  In case you’re wondering, his surgery was a success.

The next stop is the fabulously one and only Mary Fish at Stampin’ Pretty, number 20 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!

Butterfly Wishes From Me to You

This post is dedicated to two of my lifetime friends Carmel and Joy (also one of my Circle of Pals).  Why?  Because today they celebrate their birthday’s.  Happy Birthday ladies.

I love the Papillion Popourri butterflies stamped on the First Edition specialty paper.  The butterflies gracefully float up and away.  I just love it!  The Natural Composition specialty paper has an embossed feel to it, naturally.  The pictures just don’t give the beauty of the paper any justice!

If you have this paper, leave a comment letting other visitors know how the paper feels to you.  Don’t forget to visit Friday’s Post for your chance to win a FREE stamp set!  Mon., Dec. 17th is the last day.  I haven’t had any orders and if only one person places an order by midnight Monday, they will get that FREE stamp set.

Stamping is my hobby and I love sharing my cards and other crafts I make with you.  I sometimes have stressful days and when I do, I sit in my craft room and turn my anxiety into positive energy by making cards and sharing my love of stamping.  Two months ago I celebrated my first year anniversary with Stampin’ Up!  and my stress level has dropped so much… I LOVE IT!

Keeping up with my blog takes a lot of work, but it’s a positive addiction I cannot and will not let go of.  I sometimes don’t know what to write, except to write what I’m feeling and thinking of a card that I have made.  Thank you so much for stopping by and a special thank you to my faithful subscribers!  You guys/gals ROCK!

Other Supplies Used:
Punches: Modern Label (119849), Word Window Punch (119857)
