Black And Gold Wedding Card

Butterfly Thinlits, Wedding

I made this card a while ago for a black and gold wedding.  I saw a card using these colors that was a swap at OnStage in April and thought it was gorgeous.  The nice thing about this card is it used a lot of scrap card stock I already had.  I cut out the butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies out of Gold Foil Sheets.  As I was typing this I realized that the sentiment is from a retired set called And Many More.  Opps.  You could always use a different current sentiment just as well.

OnStage is a semi-annual convention for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  I have only been a few times but every time I go, I learn a lot of come back with tons of ideas.  If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator, there is a special going on with the Starter Kit right now.  Not only do you get $125 worth of merchandise for only $99, during the month of June you also get two extra stamp sets of your choice for free!  This is an awesome deal.  If you are interested in more information feel free to contact me.

A Washi Butterfly

Washi Tape, Happy Birthday Everyone

I made this card for my friend, Sherry.  Yesterday she had a big birthday.  I mean BIG BIRTHDAY!  I won’t tell you how big but just know it was BIG!  The good thing is she is still very young at heart.

I thought this Happy Birthday stamp would be perfect for her BIG birthday since, well, it is a big stamp!  It is from a hostess set that is in the Annual Catalog called Happy Birthday, Everyone.  You can only buy this set if you either host a party that has $150 in sales or make a purchase of $150 or more.

I cut out the butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits.  Then I lightly traced around it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock so I could correctly place the Washi Tape.

I hope you had an awesome birthday, Sherry!

Buffy’s Thank You

Butterflies Thinlits

As most of you know, I have a twin sister, Buffy, who lives in Virginia.  We are not really twins, at least not in this lifetime but I wouldn’t be surprised if we were in the past.  She thinks like me.  She has a weird sense of humor like me, snarks like I do and she is a great listener!  Sometimes it is a little scary.

A friend of mine who lives in Sackets Harbor now roasts her own coffee.  I don’t drink coffee but everyone I know who loves coffee loves Kelly’s Sackets Harbor Roasted Coffee.  Buffy is an avid coffee drinker.  As a matter of fact, there was this one incident…oh wait, what happened in Orlando, stays in Orlando.  In any case, I sent Buffy some Sackets Harbor Coffee.  She sent me this beautiful thank you card in return.  I think she did a whole bunch of splatters and ink blobs for the background and then cut the butterfly out using the Butterflies Thinlits.  Isn’t it gorgeous??  I probably should sent a thank you card for the thank you card (my mother in law actually did that once!).

This is Madelyn’s parents and sister.  The hairy one is the sister in case anyone is confused.  They are a beautiful family.
