Pretty Petite Pairs & Butterfly Card

Hey Stampers !!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far !! My sweet hubby and I are redoing our son's bathroom (aka the main bathroom) this weekend, so the house is a bit of a mess. But I am SO excited about it !! We have new flooring, paint, faucets and decor ! It's going to be a super fun Mickey Mouse themed bath ... can't wait for it to be finished !! LOL Yesterday I held a really fun event at my church for the Moms and Tots group ! My son goes to the group, but where it is on Friday mornings I don't get to go (his babysitter takes him) so I was really pleased to get to see it in action ! They invited me to do a demo and make and take with the moms and we had a lot of fun !! They were all brand new to stamping, and I didn't have a ton of time, so I did 2 simple but beautiful projects ! Today I am going to show you the card they did. It was a big hit ! What do you think ??


Isn't that nice ?? I tried to make it as easy as possible, but still lovely. I got the idea for this design from an issue of Stampin' Success, our demonstrator only magazine. The DSP i used is from the Summer Smooches pack, love all of those bright colors !! The colors here are Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Island Indigo. I punched out a piece of each of those colors of cardstock with the Postage Stamp Punch and then layered a DSP 1" Circle on top. Quick and easy !! I then stamped my sentiment, from the Petite Pairs stamp set, in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched that out with the Postage Stamp Punch. I arranged all of my pieces onto a card base of Whisper White and adhered them with dimensionals. Love that easy layout !!

My next step was the butterflies. I used the Bitty Butterfly Punch to punch out 2 DSP butterflies and the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out an Island Indigo butterfly. I used Glue Dots to layer the small one onto the big one, and then attached that "double" butterfly in the top left corner with a dimensional. The other Bitty Butterfly was adhered onto my sentiment Postage Stamp, also with a Glue Dot. A couple of Rhinestones and this sweet card was complete !! I love how it turned out !!

Well, thats my card for today !! I hope you like it !! Thanks a lot for coming by and Happy Stamping !!
