Remember this lovely card with the vellum butterflies (inspired by this one from Teneale Williams.)
I was making it again at our team stamping evening but had given the butterfly back to its owner (Thanks for letting me borrow it mum!) So this time we used the flower from Baroque Motifs. Amanda from one of my September classes inspired me to try it on a black base card - very striking. (Thanks for the idea Amanda.) What do you think?
The flower is embossed in white on vellum cardstock. A half pearl from the Pretties Kit (pg144) sets it off nicely. Aaahh - think I need to go and adjust that taffeta ribbon!
Quick Plug! As you can see 'Short and Sweet' has made another appearance! Have I posted any cards this month that don't use that set??? If you like it too remember it is 20% off so just $23.96 until the end of October with a $20 purchase.
I've spent a lovely day today on the Stampin' Up! stand at Paperific at the Melbourne Showgrounds. It has been fun chatting with people, demonstrating different techniques and helping people with make and take projects. I'm back again tomorrow. Come along if you are looking for a fun way to spend a few hours. There are about 40 stands, packed with all sorts of terrific things for your papercraft projects. If you love your Stampin' Up! products then you will enjoy browsing our huge display of cards, scrapbook layouts and off the page items. And make sure you pop an entry into the draw for our 2 terrific prize hampers. Hope to see you there!
