I just LOVE the Papillon Potpourri stamp set - and it's coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch - makes card making just so easy!
Well, as many of you know, my folks are in town. My mom is also a crafter and a former downline member. So, while she is here, because we have been so busy, we haven't been able to craft much. But we did tonight! Here's what we made:
|Mine is on the left, Mom's is on the right.|
And here they are individually...
|Mine - using current colors of Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse - all the NEW 2012-2014 InColors.|
Aren't they just beautiful?!
|Mom's - combining the old with the new...|
Using Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Concord Crush
(Pear and Concord are retired 2010-2012 InColors)
And the closeups of the butterflies. Mine used Stampin'Dimensionals to pop up the entire butterfly. Mom used one Stampin'Dimensional in the middle of the butterfly's body and she made his wings "fly".
|Close-up with entire butterfly using Stampin'Dimensionals.|
|Close-up with butterfly using Stampin'Dimensionals in the CENTER only.|
Makes his wings look like he is mid-flight!
Did you notice how complete the ink coverage was with the new InColors FOAM stamp pads? Wow, huh? Don't have to press as hard and it looks so pretty! Here's the Stampin'Up! video about the new ink pads, if you haven't seen it yet:
We both used the same design from the big catty (page 6, top right picture, if you want to check it out yourself). Although the catalog is no longer called an "Idea Book" and Catalog, you gotta just LOVE the samples that are throughout the book. I always think it is hardest to come up with the designs. What about you?
