Hi Stamping Friends!
Today's featured card was a make & take at our Too Cool Demo Team meeting, courtesy of Carmen DeBruce.
Inspired by by Deb Snyder.
It features the gorgeous new black and Very Vanilla patterns from Modern Medley Designer Series Paper.
Oh how I love these Modern Medley papersI So classic and elegant!
We stamped the 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla card front with the flourish from Creative Elements. We used Basic Black and stamped off once to make it lighter. You could also use the new Smoky Slate for a lighter pattern.
Then we stamped a Basic Black sentiment from the new Simply Sketched Hostess set—another beautiful set! Have you noticed that there are SO many awesome Hostess stamp sets this year! This one is only $10, but it's only available when you host. Contact me today to schedule your workshop, private class or online catalog party!
I love the three Elegant Butterfliy punch-outs from this paper. Carmen had us curl the wings under with a Bone Folder, then bend the bodies in the center before popping up with a Dimensional. I really like the softer look of curving the wings under much better than my typical way of bending them straight up.
Contoured Panel—Notice how the top and bottom of the column kind of curves to the contours of the butterflies? The curves are created with the top of the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
I think the easiest way to do this would be to cut a 1-1/2" wide strip that was about 3-1/2" long. I would punch the top of the butterfly out of both ends, then cut the strip in half. After positioning the three butterflies on the stamped layer, adhere the contoured pieces to the top and bottom of the column, trimming flush with the edge.Complete Supply List:
