Beautiful Butterfly all glammed up



Hi everyone & WOW were did last week go?? This was the 2nd card I taught at my Feminine / Mother's Day class last weekend to share with you - thinking about mothers I was inspired to recreate a beautiful card I made for my mum who loved butterflies in 2010 (click HERE to see the original) & rejuvenated it with products we now have in 2013.

It also became a bit of a retirement class as lots of the products used are on the retirement list in the States currently; what was used that has been announced in the US as retiring is Certainly Celery cardstock, ink & taffeta ribbon, Pretty in Pink ink, Elements of Style stamp set, Frost White & Champagne Mist shimmer paints. The Frost White has been added to the cut out butterfly on a scrunched up piece of plastic wrap & the Champagne Mist has been mixed with rubbing alcohol (70% isoproponal) & spritzed on the crumb cake layer, it was extremely sparkly in real life & very hard to photograph.

 I made my card a happy birthday card originally as my mum has passed away & Pete's mum card is already done but ended up changing the sentiment as I needed a "get well wishes" card this week & so easy to do; just stamped & punched out & adhered on top.


The recipe if you wanted to recreate the card:
Stamp sets: Elements of Style (121504 W, 120045 C), Teeny Tiny Sentiments (119185 W, 120024 C)
Ink: StazOn Black, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Well the retiring list is released here May 31st but if you were thinking you'd like some of the products I have mentioned above I'd get in now. I know with the Colour Refresh announcement early in April the majority of the retiring ink pads & reinkers & cardstock have already sold out & are no longer available.

To my mum readers have a fabulous day tomorrow, hope you're all spoilt rotten & if you're lucky you get $$$ for stamping supplies.
