Flight of the Butterfly meets Pocket Silhouettes (and lets hope I spelled that right).  These two stamp sets came together nicely in this card that was based on one that my friend Cindy created for a swap at our Starz Meeting last month.  Here is the link to my post on her original card.  I would have never put these colors together but I really like them and when I was looking at samples that one always stands out for me so I decided to use it for my class today.  I changed the butterfly to use the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set which is a 2-step stampin’ set and what I featured in my class.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

  • Soft Suede card stock and ink
  • Regal Rose card stock and ink
  • Barely Banana card stock and ink (this one is retiring)
  • Pocket Silhouettes stamp set
  • Flight of the Butterfly stamp set
  • Butterfly Punch
  • Trio Flower Punch
  • Soft Subtles brads
  • Eyelet Border Punch
  • Crimper
  • Paper Piercer

I really liked how Cindy added the lace border at the bottom.  Punch a strip with the Eyelet border and then run it through the crimper.  I also add a white panel on the inside that was stamped to match the front.

I didn’t have this in the picture but I decide it would be cute on the inside to stamp one of the curving sayings from the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set on the inside and then the little butterfly to the left so it looks like the butterfly trail.  That was an after thought so I did it after I took the picture.  You’ll just have to imagine it.

I’m going to go play with a few of my new stamps while it is quiet here.  Greg is out playing golf, Ryan is off at a tennis match.  Kyle and Tyler are here but entertaining themselves or each other so it is actually quiet.

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by.
