So welcome to this Stamp Review Crew blog hop! Have you come from enjoying Dawn’s creations at Tiddbits From Dawn? If not, and you’re unsure of where you should go to make sure you don’t miss a single idea, click on the banner above to get the complete list of blogs on this hop. Simple!
My first project is a 50th wedding anniversary card for friends. The butterfly, stamped in Soft Sky, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso, rests on a card base of Tip Top Taupe (my current favorite new In Color). The butterfly body is enhanced with Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and tiny pearls. More (and tinier) pearls dot the card base.
A custom at Stampin’ Up! events (or maybe generally whenever lots of women gather) is to give your roommate and friends a gift. Now I’ll spoil the surprise by showing you what I’m carrying to Salt Lake City this week — a tin of butterfly push pins. These slide-top containers (basically the same size as mint tins) have been in my stash forever. I adhered a piece of corrugated cardboard covered with card stock in the bottom of the tin to hold the push pins; a thick piece of cork would have worked even better.
Now you’re over to see Holly Krautkremer at Rubber Redneck. I love the fun details in her work!
