Fluttery Love

I was catching up on blog hopping and I noticed this sketch. Sometimes I see a sketch and print it out to try later. This was one I had to do right away. It is a simple 5 1/4" square card, but the results, in my opinion, are stunning. I used retired Loves Me designer series paper on this one. I added faux stitching around the edges and layered the Word Window punch on the largest Oval punch from Stampin' Up!. I set the sentiment up on dimensionals.

The butterflies are from Happy Heart Day a new set from Stampin' Up! that will be available for order as of January 2nd. I stamped them in Jetblack Stazon and colored them in with a blender pen. To give them some pop I outlined them in Sahara Sand and they look like they pop off of the page.

I wanted to make a sample to use in my January classes with current supplies, so I used the same sketch, but since the Limited Supply Challenge said no punches I changed it a bit. I also made a standard 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card to fit into a standard A2 envelope. I stamped the sentiment in Groovy Guava on the designer series paper and it doesn't stand out enough for me so I'm sure I'll tweak the card for classes and probably use some of the new designer series paper. I had some Ginger Blossom paper cut to use and then I grabbed Groovy Guava ink accidentally so I changed my dsp to match.

Very nice cards! Those both could also be turned into 6x6 scrapbook pages that are easy yet very cute!
