Sweet Thoughts

Hi there crafty friends!  Pretty pastel butterflies today.  They just sort of take your blood pressure right down by looking at them, don't they!  So calming.  I was very impressed with this set of butterflies called Les Papillons, I didn't want to stop using them.  They are a perfect size I think, large enough to be focal and small enough to be an extra embellishment.  I embossed my coconut white card using the Awesome Blossoms embossibility folder.  I cut away randomly at an angle going up from the right to the left side.  I stamped another piece of white card with my sentiment and clear embossed it.  Using Spun Sugar, I lightly inked that corner with my sentiment.  I taped the two pieces together to form my background.  I cut both styles of the butterflies several times for this one, using varying pastel shades for my background butterflies.  All the top lacy parts were cut in white so that I could even tone down the pastel colours even further.  I glued the pieces of my butterflies together only in the centre, leaving their wings to move independently.  I attached them to my card with glue dots a slightly varying angles, but just on the edge of my cut line going up.  I pierced around the edge of the card to complete it for a really quick card. 
Julia Watts has shows today on Create and Craft at 11am and 4pm using new Christmas stamps.  Be sure to tune in and see her exciting new ideas and demos!  All for now, Sue x

Dawn Louise said...

Good Morning, a lovely warm card, really pretty And shows off the embossed card really well. I have a question, I'm having trouble with my dies, I have a big shot pro what pads do you use to get the embossing from the dies, have followed what sizzix say but no joy, so thought I'd ask here x

kimberley said...

So simple but effective.DIdn't get these dies as I have another set of spellbinder butterfly dies that are very similar so I will use them,take care,x.

Hello Sue, I love this card & remember seeing it on one of your shows. Funny enough, based on your original, I made something very similar yesterday & if I knew how, I would send you a picture. Thanks for all your inspiration it's great.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue -
As you say when you look at today's card you can feel your BP going down and that's what all of us needs.
Again these are waiting for me in the UK (oh I wish P&P was cheaper to have them sent over here) It will feel like Christmas when I get back.
Anyway I love the card and of course the pastel shades.

I have these dies and they are beautiful. I do like the way you have used them on this card, looks so pretty with the pastel colours and a great way to use up those scraps (I am sure that every crafter has a huge amount of scraps or am I the only one lol)

Hope you have a lovely day

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
I love this card! It is so pretty and almost fragile ( just like real butterflies). I am about to make my sister a birthday card and I think this could be it! The dies are gorgeous - I had a little play with them yesterday - going to attempt a rosebud today!

Kate's Cards said...

Very pretty, I love the pastel colours.

sued99 said...

I 'need' these dies! This card is so beautiful.

Maggie said...

Good morning. These butterflies are so lovely but oh my they are difficult to get out of the dies. I haven't tried using tumble drier sheets yet so maybe that will help. Have used wax paper and even that ripped trying to get them out. I must be being too rough and tough. Still practise makes perfect so I'm definitely not giving up as they are so worth the effort. Any tips much appreciated. xx

nannapat said...

Who doesn't love butterflies? Lovely card Sue - I love the contrast of the embossed and plain card, very effective. It's our wedding anniversary today and hubby gave me £100 as he thought I may need some more Spellbinders - now all I need to do is choose which ones to get...... Pat x

Antthea said...

Morning Sue, a very pretty girlie card today. I have these dies and have some birthday cards to make so think I will be getting them out :) Hugs xx

magpie said...

This card is so beautiful Sue. Loving the pastel butterflies & yes, it is such a calming card. Absolutely gorgeous yet looks so simple to make. Love butterflies. They give you a badge of a butterfly on top of a forget me not if one of your loved one's has died & has donated their organs to help somebody. My brother had done this. The butterfly means Hope to the person who you have helped & the forget me not is to remember the loved one who died. Beautiful gesture isn't it? xx Love Karen xx
