Crafty Boots Butterfly Challenge

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is to use a Butterfly on your project.
Anyone else love Butterflies?

I do.  And I certainly love using them on my cards and papercraft projects.
This card was fairly quick and easy to make up, and again, uses some of the gorgeous new Stampin’ Up! products about to be released.
The lovely embossing folder which is framing the sentiment is called Floral Affection, and comes as a set of two folders.  I just happen to love my embossing folders, so they are always top of my wish list!
This card also uses my favourite of the new In Colours, called Sweet Sugarplum, and the butterfly is die cut from the new Playful Palette paper stack.
Happy Stamping!

Critters Challenge

I made a card!
It has been quite a while since I did any crafting.  Or blogging for that matter.  Time to get back into it though now that life has settled down.
Today’s card is for the current challenge at The Male Room, which is to make a project with the theme of Critters and/or Bugs.

My card uses some lovely new goodies which will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue which goes live in two days time.
The stamp set is a very cute Hostess set called Love You Lots.  I think I love this little frog lots!  It’s a really gorgeous stamp set.
The papers are also new, a stack called Playful Palette, which features some of the gorgeous new In Colours, in this case, the green is called Emerald Envy, and the blue is Dapper Denim.
There is one more new stamp set which I have used here, another Hostess set called Time of Year, which features these fantastic banners.  A very useful set to own.
That’s it from me for now, however, I will actually be back a little later with….. yes, another card!!
Happy stamping!
