Inspired by Nature Thank You


The "Inspired by Nature" stamp set inspired me to, well, be inspired by nature! And, it didn't hurt that I came across Stampin' B's challenge #15, to use a butterfly on a card or project. Well, if you know anything about me by now, it should be that I love butterflies! ~smile~ I couldn't resist!

Today's card features the Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, which adds a touch of class to any card or project. Even better, the styled vanilla hodgepodge hardware is on sale now through July 27th for just $18.99 (Reg. $29.99). Want to find out more about this fantastic sale? Read about the Deal of the Week, and don't forget to check back next Monday for the next one.

  • Scallop borders, like the one shown in today's card, are a snap with Stampin' Up!'s scallop edge punch.
  • Use the paper piercing tool to give a scallop border a "lace-like" appearance
  • The Big Shot creates big, beautiful butterflies so quickly and easily with the "Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. I layered two butterflies from the same die.
  • Two vanilla brads add depth to the stacked butterfly die cuts. Helpful Hint: to add a little more depth, use your fingernail to gently curl the wings of the butterflies.

Lovely card! I love the colors you used. Very creative and not the usual! I also like the butterfly and hodepodge hardware. That's something I need to get, especially the butterfly punches!
