Global Stamping Friends Hop – New Catalog

Hi everyone!

It’s time for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, and it really is global!! This hops around every month on the first Friday. There are folks all around the world joining this, so please take a look at all the fun stuff people have to share. Each month is a different theme, and this month it’s THE NEW CATALOG!

Whoa. There is sooo much good stuff in there, I wasn’t even sure where to begin. With the new catalog, and the timing with the first of the month… I’m back today for a second time to share another wonderful new product. 🙂

I picked the Bundle that I immediately fell in love with – for multiple reasons! One – It has a butterfly thinlit! And two…. the beautiful multi-step rose! Here’s my card:

Gorgeous right? This is the Abstract Impressions Bundle, which is the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Springtime Impressions Thinlits.

The extra fun part is all the colors are new, too! I’ve used Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green. For the roses, I actually used Blueberry Bushel twice, stamping off once for the medium shade.

The Butterfly is die cut twice, once in the Blueberry Bushel, and once in the new Designer Series Paper – Tranquil Textures.  I used this paper because the subtle blue pattern was in Balmy Blue, and it matched my card perfectly.

I finished it off with some cute Polka Dot Ribbon tied in a bow, some rhinestones, and some Wink of Stella! Here’s another look at all the texture this card has:

I hope you liked this one, I know I did!

Please take some time to continue on with the rest of the hop, you will be heading over to Jan’s blog next, and don’t forget to leave some nice comments to let us know what you think!
Happy Stamping!

Butterfly Basics resist technique

I’m trying out a new method for posting, so hopefully it turns out looking like the others!

I have quite a few samples I’ll be sharing over the next few days, as I mentioned we created a stack of awesome cards at the recent Technique Day I went to.

Here is one using the Butterfly Basics bundle:

StampinMak.comI wish I could take credit for designing it, but that goes to Linda Bauwin. I can take credit for following her instructions!  🙂

If you want to learn how to make a card like this, just let me know, I would be happy to teach you. This one requires some wax paper, an iron and some watercoloring. Funny thing is, I don’t even iron my clothes (hardly ever), but I’ll break out the iron to make a nifty butterfly card!

I hope you enjoy it!
