Clean and Simple Papillon Potpourri

This quick and easy card features the new stamp set Papillon Potpourri and the matching butterfly punch.  Since I failed kindergarten scissor skills, I love anything that has a coordinating punch.   Although it doesn't show very well in the photo, the bottom is embossed using one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders for the Big Shot. 

Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Curly Cute
Paper: Whisper white, Rich Razzleberry, Baja Breeze, Floral District designer series paper
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels (we all need bling!), Delicate Designs embossing folder

100 Card Swap

One of the ways for Stampin' Up! demonstrators to have a lot of samples to show our customers is to participate in swaps.  This is where each participant makes a bunch of identical cards and then they all trade.  The Super Bowl of all swaps is a 100 card swap.  I've done this a few times over the years and have gotten so many great samples.  This is the card I made this year.

This card uses four different stamp sets. The three new ones are Papillon Potpourri, Serene Silhouettes and Daydream Medallions.  The oldie is Fabulous Phrases.

I'll post pix of some of the swaps I received once I get the ok from the creators.

Email me to order any of the supplies used to make this card.

Pleasant Poppies

Love this new background stamp called Pleasant Poppies. In this card I only used a portion of the image. 

I colored the poppies with Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink markers.  After I was done with this one, I realized that the flower buds really should be green.  Call it artistic license.
