I had my June Stamp-a-stack today and had 3 great ladies come. Here are two of the cards they did today. I think everyone loved the Butterfly card the most!
My card base is Almost Amethyst (retiring on June 30th), with a layer of Elegant Eggplant and then Whisper White that was run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder (page 24, summer mini). But before I embossed it, I stamped the flourish from Elements of Style in two of the opposite corners. The large butterfly is in Almost Amethyst and stamped with the same color using the big flower stamp and sponged. This butterfly die is an exclusive Stampin' Up! die and it has 4 different butterflies on the one die. The smaller butterfly is embossed and sponged as well. Added two half pearls from the Pretties Kit (retiring June 30th) to the center, along with some Hemp Twine to make the antennas. Stamped the For You and punched out with the 1" punch and layered onto the 1 1/4" circle punch.
I totally cased this, but changed the color. I can't remember who I cased it from, but if its you, please contact me and I will add your name and blog link to this post.
The second card they did today has a card base of Pixie Pink (retiring June 30th), with a bit of Presto Patterns (page 15, summer mini), that was brayered in Old Olive. The flower is from Watercolor Trio (page 16, summer mini). We used Pixie Pink, Crushed Curry & Old Olive markers before stamping. That is layered on Pixie Pink & Old Olive. Added a strip of Old Olive and used the Eyelet border punch. Stamped the Birthday Wishes with Pixie Pink and punched out with the Designer Label punch. I also punched out an Old Olive piece and cut it in half and layered behind the greeting. Finished it off with some Whisper White Satin ribbon.
