When starting I thought I wasn't going to like it, but once again the end result turned out great. That is what counts. I chose my colors from the Stampin' Up! catalog. Sometimes when I can't come up with the colors I would like to use, I will look in the catalog at the samples, find out what colors were used, and then make a card of my own.
Here is a close up of the butterfly. It is made 3D by using dimensionals and glue dots. I twisted 1/4" early espresso grosgrain ribbon around the middle. I should probably say I also used my Big Shot and the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die. I am very thankful that I bought it.
All products used are Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: baja breeze, crumb cake, soft suede, and elegant soiree dsp
Ink: baja breeze, early espresso, and soft suede
Stamp set: because I care (sentiment)
Tools: big shot, beautiful butterflies bigz die, elegant lines embossing folder, perfect details texturz plate, stamping sponge, and scallop trim border punch

Well, I hope you like it. I really do. If you have a minute leave me a comment!

Have you been making cards, tags, and gifts? I sure do hope so. I try to work on things when I have some extra time to do it. I wanted to share with you 2 more Christmas tags I made. These are really fast and fun to make. Like I have shared with you before, my daughter's boyfriend is a hunter. I had to make a special gift tag for him with a deer on it. Do you suppose it would make him not want to kill a deer ever again? I doubt it. How could you shoot something so innocent, though? I guess, you have to love the sport.
These are the Stampin' Up! supplies I used to create these cute little gift tags.
Cardstock: marina mist, shimmery white, night of navy, and whisper white
Stamp sets: forest friends and snow swirled
Ink: night of navy and platinum shimmer paint
Tools: big shot, two tags bigz die, sponge dauber, boho blossoms punch, and snowflake XL punch
Accessories: clear and silver tinsel trim, filigree designer brad, and dazzling diamonds glitter
When visiting my blog, please take the time to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I made these up for fellow coworkers at my job. I figure the only way to try and sell Stampin' Up! is to promote it by making things. These were very fast to create. I may try to do something similar closer to Christmas.
To make these up I used Autumn Spice DSP. I used coordinating cardstock and ink. The punches used were modern label, word window, 1 1/4" circle, 1 3/8" circle, scallop circle, scallop border, eyelet border, and scallop trim border punches. The 1/4" grosgrain ribbon was chocolate chip and always artichoke, of which, have been retired.
