Stampin' Up! Five-Way Flower Pop n' Cuts Card!

Stampin'Up! Backyard Basics Faux Silk!

Hey there! I had a fun day today! One of my downline, Joyce, has started a second direct-selling business, Origami Owl, and she had her Open House to get started today. Fortunately  I had time to go, so I did! I had heard about Orgami Owl for awhile, but had never actually been to a party, so I was naturally curious. Pretty stuff!

I hope you will consider the card I have for you to be "pretty stuff":

What do you think? I think it is "pretty stuff"! I stamped the iris from Backyard Basics on tissue paper, crumpled the paper into a ball, gently but not completely smoothed it back out, then adhered the tisuue to a layer of Whisper White cardstock with  a Stampin' Up! Glue Stick. I wrapped the tissue around to the back side of the cardstock and adhered with more Glue Stick.

The result (although I must apologize for the blurry picture!) is a slightly creased and rumpled look, reminiscent of silk! I added strips of Rhinestones again. It's amazing how I have hoarded these for a long time, and now suddenly I've used them on two cards in a row! I added one single rhinestone to the center of the Vintage Faceted Button too!

Inside I stamped the butterfly from the same set directly on the Whisper White layer, stamping off on scrap paper beforehand so it would have a lighter look. I did a "faux silk" butterfly by stamping on the tissue, crumpling, unfolding, glueing to cardstock, then cutting it out with the butterfly Backyard Basics framelit!

That's all for now. The supply list for today's creation is shown below. Clicking on any image will take you to my Online Store where you can shop and order!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
