STAMPIN' UP!® BOTANICAL BUTTERFLY GALA and GRAPEFRUIT GROVE FOIL - February 2019 STAMP CAMP

Hello, Stampers!
    I've got three versions of this card to share today, using different embossing folders and a variation of butterflies.  The front and center above is my favorite because I like this embossed background the best - it is the new Dot to Dot TIEF in the Occasions Catalog, p.25.  Below are the other two.  I imagine a background with the new Flower Garden Dynamic TIEF (SAB 2) would be gorgeous, as well.


Basket Weave TIEF

    
Swirls & Curls TIEF
     DO YOU NOTICE ANYTHING ELSE different about one of these samples?  The butterflies on the card with the Basket Weave background were not stamped, they were punched out of the Botanical Butterfly FREE DSP!  Can it get any easier?  Instructions are below (on my blog).

Happy Stampin’!

IS A VALENTINE IN ANY OTHER COLOR JUST AS SWEET? STAMPIN' UP! ANIMAL OUTING BUNDLE (AGAIN)

Hi, Stampers!
     Can you tell I'm fond of the Animal Outing Bundle?  Of course, this doesn't have to be a Valentine, but I love the Grapefruit Grove 2018-20 In Color and also wanted to use some of the new Gingham Gala DSP from the Occasions Catalog.  Could be a thank you, anniversary, too.  Anyway, I just love this kind of haughty little giraffe from the Bundle and the heart Thinlits from Sunshine Wishes, which I die cut from the SAB FREE Grapefruit Grove (iridescent) Foil. There's also Lovely Lipstick in the foil pack for those of you who want to stick to the more traditional Valentine colors.  And, there is a perfect "love" die in the Sunshine Wishes set.  The giraffe was stamped with Memento on Shimmery White and colored with Stampin' Blends. 
     The leaf on which I stamped the sentiment is a die from the Tropical Thinlits (part of the Tropical Chic Bundle).  And, of course, I couldn't use one of my animals without the Leaf Ribbon!  See my January 9 post here.  Both the foil heart and the Leaf Ribbon are just adhered with a few rolled-up Glue Dots here and there.  I've listed supplies below - if you would like a more detailed Project Sheet with measurements and instructions, email me.


Happy Stampin’!
