SIP#8 – Cardmakers Choice

By | August 7, 2015

Happy Friday! It’s been a busy work week and the weekend is rather filled as well. We have the Cranberry Cup Softball Tournament Saturday and Sunday, a party Saturday night and some general errand running to do. One thing I’m looking forward to is sleeping out on the sun porch tonight, the temperature is going down to around 60 degrees and I just love sleeping with a cool breeze blowing as I lay under a fluffy cover!

By now you should all know that any stamp set, framelit or thinlit with butterflies is one of my favorites, so when I saw the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge this week was “Cardmakers Choice”, it wasn’t hard for me to know what I wanted to do. The hardest part was waiting for my Stampin Up Holiday pre-order to arrive (I treated myself to 2nd day shipping), so I could give a sneak peek of a new embossing folder “Woodland”, I knew it would look cool with the butterflies. Click on the sketch below to check out their blog.


To make the card I used the new “Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder”, which is available September 1st in the new 2015 Holiday Catalog, on a piece of Early Espresso card stock to create my card base. Using a sponge dauber and white craft ink I highlighted all the birch branches to make them pop and add some depth. The butterflies once die cut were coated in VersaMark, dipped in Iridescent Stampin Embossing Powder and heat set for a sparkly effect, they are adhered with dimensionals cut in tiny pieces. The sentiment is from Birthday Blossoms on Bermuda Bay, accented with rhinestone and back with dimensionals.
