Butterflies and Scallops

These are the cards I desinged for my class held on Saturday 28th May based on the wonderful inspiration I get from looking at Jenny Moors blog Stamping Moments.

We made four cards using the new dies and embossing folders featured in the new Mini Catalogue.  All the cards used Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White cardstock and matching inks.

Butterflies and Scallops

For this card, I stamped the En Francais stamp in Craft ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock to form the background paper.  The scalloped circle was embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the sentiment is from the Fresh Cuts stamp set which was punched using the oval and scalloped oval punches.

Beautiful Wings

This card uses the Scalloped Circle as the card blank.  The Whisper White circle was embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder and the ribbon is the new Pear Pizzazz Seam binding ribbon which was gathered by gently pulling the middle threads.  The small butterflies are created using the new Beautiful Wings Embosslits Folder and finished with adhesive pearls.

Top Note Easel Card

This card uses the new Top Note die as the base and is created to form an Easel card.  The papers are from the Springtime Vintage range featured in the new mini Catalogue.  Again the inside of the card is stamped with craft ink and the En Francais stamp and is finished off with one of the large Beautiful Wings butterflies and an adhesive gem int he centre.

This card again features the Scalloped circle die used as the card blank, the black circle has been embossed using the Vintage wallpaper embossing folder and the ribbon is Certainly Celery Taffeta ribbon.
