Butterfly Punch Pansy & Last Day for Retiring SU Products

I've always wanted to make one of these pansies using the butterfly punch. Just punch out two butterflies in Shimmery White Card Stock. I find the Shimmery White works the best when using an Aqua Painter. Next, color in your pansy using your Aqua Painter and drops of re-inker. 

Remember - today is the last day to ORDER retiring products from Stampin' Up!

Growing Green Pedestal Pop-Up Card from CPC

Another amazing creation by Kim Score for Craft Project Central this month. With this fun technique, your butterfly will literally "jump" off the card when the recipient opens it! This simple technique can be adapted to pop up different sized pieces, depending on the pedestal size. In addition to making a bunch of these cards for your own card giving needs, this project is a great club, class, workshop, or open house make-n-take project. Just SUBSCRIBE to June for full color instructions.

Fourth of July Firecracker Treat

I love fireworks! Especially ones made out of chocolate. These are made out of Rolo's. I was inspired by Craft Project Central's Fourth of July Party Ensemble created by Heidi. The paper isn't Stampin' Up! but everything else is.

Gerbera Daisy Post it Note Holder

I had a couple of different people inspire me to make this cute Post-it-Note Holder. The first was a project designed by Kim Score for April's Craft Project Central. I just had to make one of these. I was inspired to create the Gerbera Daisy from Debbie Martin. So, I combined the two ideas and put the Gerbera Daisy on the front. The daisy is created using the Bigshot Die, Daisies #2 and the Boho Blossoms Punch. I used the retiring Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper.
