Colourful Splats and Butterflies with Stampin' Up Products

Colourful Splats and Butterflies

Yesterday evening saw me production line crafting to make some thank you cards for customers who have recently ordered Stampin' Up products through me - I really do appreciate every order.
As always, if you would like to know more about Stampin' Up or order any products, please get in touch via craftycarolinecreates@gmail.com or call me, 0161 4380668.
If you'd like to shop Stampin' Up 24/7, my on-line store is HERE
The card was inspired by a few I'd seen on Pinterest and as our summer has been so mixed recently working with such bright colours really lifted my mood.

I started with a base of Whisper White Card Stock measuring 13.8cm by 9.5cm and I made the two embossed lines by scoring the card on my Stampin' Up trimmer at 0.5cm and 1cm from each end.
I then flipped the card over and you are left with these gorgeous embossed lines.
The splodges of colour are made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, again from Stampin' Up. I wasn't sold on this set when it came out but now I am an absolute convert. It is so versatile and as you can see in this card, very effective. I overlapped each colour slightly and rotated the stamp set 180degrees after each stamp.
The colours I used are, Real Red, Crisp Canteloupe, Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay
I then punched out the butterflies using the Bitty Butterfly Punch in scraps of card stock which match the ink. The way Stampin' Up products coordinate together is possibly one of the things I love best about the company and this card really highlights this.
I popped each butterfly on to the card using half of a Stampin' Dimensional. It still needed something else so I highlighted the butterflys with jewels and pearls.
Finally, I mounted the the design on a standard Whisper White Card Blank, again using a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here they all are lined up and ready to go. I think the card works well in both landscape and portrait.
They will be winging their way to customers today - I hope they like them.
The new Stampin' Up 2014-2015 catalogue launches on 1st July. I've had a sneak peak and it is fully of amazing things and all of the products used to make this card will still be available!

If you would like a catalogue, I'd be delighted to send you one, all I ask is that you pay £2.50 towards the postage cost - which I will refund against your next order.

Sounds good doesn't it!
