Stampin' Up! Typeset Butterfly Basics!

Hey there! Today I need to share with you one of the favorite cards from the buffet last weekend. This card is a CASE of a beautiful card created by Joanne Rolston, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Canada. We used Typeset Specialty Designer Paper, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, and Early Espresso card stock with lots of stamping-off and sponging with Tip Top Taupe:

The Butterfly Basics stamp set, a carry over from the Occasions Catalog, provided all the images and sentiments we needed.

The only additions we made to Joanne's creation were to emboss the Blushing Bride layer with the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Folder, and to add loops of the new Gold Metallic Thread behind the butterfly with glue dots to give the look of antennae.

The two sentiments in the set, "Happy Birthday" and "Sending Wishes Your Way" are so interchangeable and versatile.

That's all for now. Here's the supply list to find everything you need in my online store:

Hi Patricia, Thanks for your question. I took about 20 inches of the thread, which is very soft & fine, and wound it around all four fingers of my left hand, creating several loops. After I slid the loops off my hand I then pulled the loops flat and tied a loose knot in the center. I added the loops behind the butterfly with a glue dot under the knot. You might want to add a couple more glue dots to make sure the loops stay the way you want them too. Hope this helps! Carol Payne


Beautiful card, Carol! Can you please describe how you used the gold metallic thread? Thanks!
