Stampin’ Up! Paper Butterfly Accents

Happy Valentine’s Day! 

Today’s card was created using Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper, the So Sincere stamp set, Paper Butterfly Accents, Deckled Rectangles Dies and one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders


Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper



I started with Gorgeous Grape cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders and my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and then I adhered it to the front of the card.




Next I cut a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper with the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I adhered the Fresh Freesia rectangle at an angle and then adhered the DSP rectangle.

I stamped my sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Gorgeous Grape ink and the stamp set, So Sincere. I cut it out using the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I didn’t use Stampin’ Dimensionals for this card (shock!!!) and adhered it to the Designer Series Paper. You can’t add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the butterfly, which is why I didn’t pop up the sentiment with Dimensionals. 





I used a Blending Brush to add color to my  butterfly (there are 40 butterflies in one package of Paper Butterfly Accents) with Fresh Freesia ink. Then, I added Multipurpose Glue to the back and placed it on my card. To finish my card, I added three Purple Fine Glimmer Gems and added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

The best time to purchase the Starter Kit is during Sale-A-Bration!! The Starter Kit is $99 and you’ll receive $125 in Stampin’ Up! product (shipping is always free when you purchase the Starter Kit)! The Starter Kit is truly for anyone! It’s for the person who wants to receive a 20% (to start) discount when they buy their Stampin’ Up! products. It’s also for the business minded person. There’s no risk in purchasing the Starter Kit, only perks and you get to choose what you want to add to your Starter Kit.  But wait, there’s more!

When I purchased the Starter Kit in 2009, I bought it just so I could get the discount. In 2009 you didn’t have the freedom to choose the products you wanted, it came with set products.  I love that Stampin’ Up! gives you the chance to now customize your kit so that you pick the products you love and know you will use. For more information about the Starter Kit, you can take a look here for some frequently asked questions.  You are also welcome to email me with any questions (click EMAIL ME on the sidebar).

You have two options during Sale-a-Bration:  

Option 1: Choose the Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio (Retail Value $60). If you choose this option, Stampin’ Up! will send this to you, absolutely FREE! 

The heavy-duty glass mat comes printed with a ruler and grid lines for easy measuring, while the large surface space gives ample room for spreading out while paper crafting. The safety-tempered glass has a heat and scratch resistant surface that wipes clean with the included cloth and water—no chemicals needed. The reusable cloth also cleans ink off your stamps! The nonslip, heat resistant, waterproof silicone mat features four palette squares for mixing custom ink colors or for holding small ink spots in place while crafting. Each component can be used separately or you can use all three items together for a multipurpose paper crafting studio that’s both functional and elegant.

Option 2: Your choice of an additional $30 in FREE products to add to your Starter Kit!
