I  have used one of the butterfly die-cuts on this card.

True Love Designer Series Paper

I colored the flowers and leaves on a piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper with Rich Razzleberry and Just Jade Blends.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the shaded parts of the flowers and leaves. You can’t see if very well in the photo, but it looks really pretty.
The butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set was stamped in Momento Black Ink and colored with Mango Melody and Just Jade Blends.  I then cut it out with the coordinating Brilliant Wings Dies.  There are 2 dies that match each butterfly – one that cuts out the whole butterfly and one that cuts out parts of the wings.  I used the one that cuts out part of the wings.
The card base is Basic White Cardstock and the next layer is Rich Razzleberry.  The greeting was stamped in Just Jade and cut out with one of the Tasteful Label Dies.
Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon was wrapped around the True Love Designer Series Paper and a bow was tied before the paper was adhered to the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.

TIPS: The Gilded Leafing is packed tightly in the container and is super light so it can “float” around easily. Open the container carefully and consider storing the leafing in a larger storage container with a lid. This makes the leafing easier to use and also easier to return excess leafing once done.

Hey Birthday Chick Pop-out Fancy Fold Card and Tutorial

Hey Birthday Chick Pop-out Card Tutorial

Hey Friends, 
I hope you all are having a great week!  It’s been a busy one for me.  I’ve cut all the cardstock and Designer Series Paper for my Forever and Always online class.  I’m just waiting for all the stamp sets and dies to get here tomorrow and then they will be mailed out.  I’m so excited – This is my first online class and I’ve had several customers purchase it!  I can’t wait to hear what everyone says about it.  If you purchased this class, a link for cards and the step-by-step video will be sent to you by email.  You will also receive a PDF of the written tutorial, as well.
Now, for today’s video.  It was actually supposed to be posted yesterday, but after I took the video I sat down to watch it and there was nothing there!  I guess I didn’t push the record button before I started!  I recorded it again today and noticed that there were a few mistakes where I called something by the wrong name, so please excuse the errors!  I’m still working on not being nervous.  You can see the video below.  Please let me know what you think in the comments: what I did wrong, how I can make it better, etc.

Here are the instructions with all the measurements in case you didn’t get to write them down while watching the video.
1.  Cut Cardstock:
Whisper White – 5″ x 7-1/2″; 2-1/2″ x 3″; 4 x 5-1/4″; 2″ x 6-1/2″                                                                                Bumblebee – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″; 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
2.  Score and fold large piece of Bumblebee Cardstock at 4-1/4″.
3.  Score and fold large piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 3-3/4″.
4.  Stamp the two chicks, the little chick with the birthday hat, the greeting and the sentiment in Momento Black Ink.
5.  Color the chick with the Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Ivory Blends. Color the top of the cupcake with Soft Suede Ink.
6.  Die-cut the 2 large chicks using the coordinating Chick Dies and the Birthday Chick Dies.
7.  Emboss the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock. Place the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around it and tie a bow. Glue it to the card front.
8.  Adhere the 2-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Bumblebee Cardstock.
9.  Place the birthday chick die-cut on this panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then glue the panel to the card front.
10.  Place a light pencil mark 2/1/2″ down on the score line of the large piece of Whisper White Cardstock that goes inside the card. Mark 2-1/2″ to the left and right of the score line at the top of the piece of cardstock.
11.  Score from the pencil mark on the left side of the score line to the pencil mark on the score line. Score from the pencil mark on the right side of the score line down to the mark on the score line. Fold at the score lines to make a “V”,
12.  Place glue on the back of this piece of Whisper White Cardstock, making sure NOT to get any in the “V” area. Fold this piece and adhere it to the inside of the card base so that the fold lines are matching each other.
13.  Place glue on the LEFT side of the chick die-cut and adhere it to the left side of the center score line of the “V”.
 
When purchasing the Stampin’ Up! products I used, make sure to use the Hostess Code for February – 6NDTKWX2.
