Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala - stepped up

Hello, here are the details for our final project this week using Butterfly Gala.

We created a background for our card using Grapefruit Grove ink on the same coloured card and adhered to the base with Dimensionals.

We then stamped lots of butterflies in various colours and punched them out.

We stamped the body of the butterflies using Smoky Slate ink.

The stamps in this set are so clever - the large and small butterfly are a single stamp AND they are positioned to align perfectly with the punch = absolute genius!!

I used a Stitched Shape Framelit to cut out a panel for this lovely sentiment and added a spare butterfly.  I used another strand of the Flax Ribbon and added a few jewels for a bit of sparkle.

The hardest part of this project was deciding which butterflies to use and where to place them.  Each butterfly was adhered with Dimensionals.

We added a panel of Whisper White to the inside and and stamped a border a border of butterflies along the edge.  I 'doubled padded' the sentiment so that it would sit above the butterflies.

At the start of the session Maggie commented that she did not like Grapefruit Grove as a colour but once we had added all the coloured butterflies she changed her mind!

Here is the completed card and envelope.

My crafty ladies (and me) have really enjoyed using this delightful stamp and punch bundle with pretty Spring like colours.  The most popular colour choice for our first project this week was Highland Heather with Balmy Blue a close second!

Thanks to everyone who joined me for a crafty coffee this week.  I will share details of the final projects for 2018 next week - I've not decided what we will be doing yet!

I will be finishing off my own Christmas cards this weekend so I can get them in the post before it is too late.  Every year I try to be more organised - maybe I might actually manage it next year!!
