Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set

I've been playing a little bit with the beautiful papers from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, but today, I really had fun with the different butterflies in this paper.  There is so much variety.  I decided to make two cards and selected butterflies with a Heather Highland shades and Granny Apple Green for one and Daffodil Delight and Granny APple Green for the other.  I also used two different sentiments from the Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set -- highlighting one on each card.  The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set is from the Occasions catalog and the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper is a free selection with a $50 order from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure  

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set

I used a basecard of Soft Sea Foam.  Then I used one of the striped patterns from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series papers and one of the prints from the same paper pack to create a center panel.  I only used 3/4" strips of the striped material as the back side of the paper is filled with Butterflies I wanted to use on other projects. 

Butterflies from Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

The butterflies are from two different prints in Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I hand cut them out the the paper and then used a Granny Apply Green Blends or a Daffodil Delight Blends pen to color the Balmy Blue or Grapefruit Grove boarders so they better matched the background paper.  For one card, I selected Butterflies with mostly yellow shades.  For the other card, I selected Butterflies with Heather Highland shades.         

Sentiments from Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set

I used a strip of Basic Black cardstock for the sentiment.  Using sentiments from Stampin' Up! BUtterfly Gala Stamp Set, I heat embossed the sentiments with White embossing powder, and then cut them to fit across the top of the largest butterflies tips.  These large butterflies we towards the edges o the paper and the tips were cut off, however, you would never know it after I positioned the sentiment across the tips to cover these parts of the image.

I added Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to each edge of the Basic Black sentiment.

If you like something you see, order it as soon as possible.  Back in November when I saw all of the wonderful Butterfly items in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, I knew I was going to order everything!  Butterflies are very popular in our catalogs, and sales of these new butterflies --as expected--have been booming!  As mentioned earlier, the Butterfly punch is out of stock.  Stampin' Up! had ordered 4 times the quantities of a normal yearly inventory for a punch, when they realized how popular this punch was going to be after Demonstrator pre-orders and early Sale-A-Bration orders began.  And it still wasn't enough!  Stampin' Up! is waiting for word on when the next order will arrive, but due to the time it takes to order punches, it looks like it might be towards the end of Sale-A-Bration before this punch is back in stock.  But don't worry.  This punch will carry over after Sale-A-Bration, so be sure to add it to your Wish List to order as soon as it become available again.  I'll let you know when new stock arrives.

Need to place on order, today?  Remember that each $50 order earns you a free Sale-A-Bration selection.  Today's Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper would make a great, free Sale-A-Bration selection with your $50 order.
