Papillon Sorbet

Sometimes, making a card is a process. I started out with two little strips of DSP, then I added the cardstock. Of course, I then realized the cardstock needed some dimension. From that point I used my Simply Scored and the Diagonal Plate, and a piece of ribbon.

I really wanted to include a sentiment on the front, but it was not to be. Instead, I opted for butterflies and flowers. Layering the stamped butterflies on top of the punched cardstock, just adds a bit more definition. From there I just added some "bling" and my card is complete.

Slowly, very slowly, I am beginning to learn that the process sometimes takes a bit more time.
Supplies:
Stamps - Butterfly Basics, Papillon Potpourri
Cardstock - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Sorbet
Ink - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Accessories - Butterflies Thinlits die; Pearl and Rhinestone Jewels; Bitty Butterfly, Elegant Butterfly, Itty Bitty Shapes, and  Petite Petals punches; Pool Party ribbon; Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

Sorbet Butterflies

I seem to have a large amount of retired DSP. Because there is always new, ready-to-be-used DSP, I always seem to have an abundant supply of retired stock.

I found a One Sheet Wonder cutting template at QuietFire Creations, and decided to use some of the "old stuff." She used paper with a Christmas pattern, while mine has more of a springtime feel to it. That's the best part of One Sheet Wonder projects; any DSP can be used!

For the next few days, I plan to post several cards I make, utilizing just one sheet of DSP. Please join me and see what I come up with.



Supplies:
Stamp - Butterfly Basics, Everything Eleanor
Cardstock- Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Sorbet
Ink - Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Accessories - Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Pearl and Rhinestone jewels, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit twine

Caterpillar to Butterfly

I had fun playing with this stamp set. The sentiment is perfect for lots of people. Although I punched out the small butterflies, I actually cut out the larger one. Of course, the next day I received the Butterflies Thinlits Dies the following day. Don't you just love the way the larger butterfly has that lacy look?

Melon & Wasabi Bouquets

I made these two cards because I was experimenting with Blendabilities techniques. Some people swear by the method of starting with the darkest shade then moving towards the lightest. Others choose to blend from light to dark. Honestly, I can't tell the difference. What do you think? How do you color with your Blendabilities?


Supplies:
Stamps - Butterfly Basics
Cardstock - Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
Ink -  Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Memento Tuxedo Black
Blendabilities - Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
