Papillon Potpourri Card

Papillon Potpourri

Papillon Potpourri

Happy Wednesday!!

This week I used several of the new Stampin’ Up! products! First, this butterfly stamp set and punch are amazing. My favorite thing about this punch is that it cuts perfectly around the butterfly – it doesn’t leave a white border around it. It’s exactly like I would cut it myself with scissors (well, except that it’s perfectly cut!). Second, I love butterflies that look like real butterflies – this stamp is just that.

I also used the new framelits and paper piercing template pack. I really love these dies – they are bigger than I thought they would be. I slowed the video down to show you what comes in the pack.

Anyway, a few Hero Arts background stamps thrown in and there you have it!

Hope you are all having a great summer. I am boiling down here in Dallas already with over 100 degree heat! 🙂

Enjoy the video and have a great week!

    Hello Darlene: You did an amazing job, as usual. This butterfly stamp set and the punch is at the very top of a short list of SU things I will get from this catalog. The Framelits and the paper piercing kit are also on this list. Thank you for your videos. I couldn’t watch it yesterday because we went to Chicago to visit family and we came home so late but I was thinking about it and I was just so eager to see what you have done. Lovely card, fabulous video, thank you so much.

    Another fabulous card Darlene. Can’t wait to get those new SU goodies here in Australia.
    Those sub titles are so funny – not quite what you were saying – so very funny to read!!
