Butterfly Shaker Card – PPA309

Butterfly Shaker Card for PPA309

Loving making shaker cards! For this card, use thinlit to cut out butterfly from front cardstock. Attach a window sheet to the backside. Use foam adhesive tape to outline as close as you can to the butterfly with no gaps. This space you created is where you are going to fill with glitter / confetti / beads / sequins, anything small and fun you have laying around the house. Add extra foam adhesive to the rest of the cardstock back to keep the front flat. Stick to a background color cardstock, then basecard. Embellish front as desired.

Butterflies Thinlits Card

Stampin' Up! Butterflies Thinlits and Butterfly Basics Stamp Set

As you can tell I’m in love with the Butterfly Basics and Butterflies Thinlits from Stampin’ Up! They are just so easy to use, fun for summer and can be used for any occasion. Other products I constantly use are the Stampin’ Dimensionals, to make images pop, and either the Pearl Basic Jewels or Rhinestone. Both of these items add a lot to a card and fairly inexpensive to use at $5 or less for300 dimensionals and 150 jewels.

Simple Flourish Negative Card

Simple Flourish Negative CardAs promised here is the card using the negative cut out from yesterday. A very quick and easy card using scraps from another card. Could very easily be embellished with ribbon or banner tags. Just make sure when you die-cut the flourish you use a big enough rectangle to make another card. This does require a little planning ahead.

Flourishing Phrases – PPA305

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases PPA305

PPA-305-June16Had to try out my new thinlits for the Pals Paper Arts challenge. I then decided they were so cool that I needed to make bookmarks for my book club members. I was also able to use my new Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad from FREE Paper Pumpkin kit when I got my Starter Kit.

Finished card size is 5.5″ x 4.25″. The strip of pool party cardstock is 0.75″ attached to the inside of the card. I then cut 0.75″ of white cardstock from the front of the card to have the inside peak through.

The best method to attach my thinlit cut outs is to use my fine-tip glue pen. If someone has a better alternative, please let me know!

See my next post for how I made my bookmarks.
