Butterflies & Easels

Today's the day of the annual Creative Inkers Sale-a-Bration Extravaganza. An extravaganza is an event where a group of demos teach different projects & the attendees sit back & have fun, create, eat & even win prizes - we must be doing something right as we sold out last week!

The Butterfly Prints stamp set & easel cards are my favourites at the moment, so I managed to persuade the demo working with me at this event - Janine Pearce that we couldn't make a punch art card which was her idea as I don't do punch art (sorry for those that love punch art & attending). She graciously allowed me to chose as our project an easel card using butterflies! Though we are doing punching out of butterfly shapes when I think about it.

Patrice from our team had recently made an easel card with a photo frame - so we added that in to create a bit more pizazz.

 The only other comment I have to make is we chose to use Kaleidoscope DSP as Rachael refused to use it on her backpack & both Janine & myself love Kaleidoscope DSP which will retire in 18 days time on March 31st.

Stamp sets: Butterfly Prints, Polka Dot (background), Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Sahara Sand, Summer Sun, Pixie Pink
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Whisper White, Vellum, Kaleidoscope DSP
Punches: 1-3/8" square, scallop border, hand-held 1/16"
Other: Filigree designer brads, mini glue dots, silver brads, magnetic strip (non-SU!)

The Pocket Silhouettes stamped piece is supposed to represent a photo.

This is really lovely Karen. I'm sure the attendees were really impressed with this project. I only wish I could have been one of them :)
