Birthday Butterfly..again :)

I came across another website that offers weekly sketch challenges and you know how much Iove sketch challenges :) So this is my take on this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge.

There are two products I want to highlight for you:

Before I added the silver glimmer paper, I felt something was missing. It looked too plain. The glimmer paper sure gives it a nice pop -- don't you think? This paper is 12"x12" and comes with 2 sheets.

Silver Glimmer PaperItem#124005, $5.95)
My new favourite punch is the Elegant Butterfly -- it coordinates with the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. It's gorgeous! Here are the images for the punch and stamp set.

NEW! Elegant Butterfly punch (Item# 127526, $21.95)

Papillon Potpourri stamp set (Clear: 123759, $17.95..Wood: 123757, $22.95) 

Stamping with Rach Tips & Tricks
  • Run the each pink cardstock through the Big Shot using 2 different embossing folders (one for each piece)
  • Add a strip of bling...I mean silver glimmer paper :)
  • Fold the butterfly in half then put a glue dot on the fold. When adhered to the card stock the wings can fold up as if the butterfly is in flight
