About Me

My photo
I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Beautiful Wings - it finally arrived!

I placed a product order a few weeks back now, and the one item I desperately wanted was out of stock :o( 
Well today it finally arrived, and I was so excited I went straight to my craft room and started making a card.
In the new mini catalogue are lots of die cutting plates from Sizzix, many of which are exclusive to Stampin' Up! and cannot be purchased anywhere else.  
Beautiful Wings is an Embosslit Die - a unique die with a positive and negative image that simultaneously cuts and embosses a variety of designs on card or DSP.
Here is the card I made - sweet and simple!
I ran Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie through my die cutting machine in the embosslit and got this lovely variety of butterflies, and more to spare.
The sentiment is from the SAB set So Happy For You (sadly now retired, sorry)
I punched it out with the new Decorative Label Punch, smaller by feeding it in and cutting down the sides to fit nicely around the words.  I also cut edges of Basic Black with the same punch and layered them to the back to give it a shadow effect and make it stand out from the Whisper White card base the butterflies are mounted on.

This card fits in nicely with the current SUO Challenge 18 - In Celebration Of Butterflies so I'm going to join in and pop my card in the gallery.

Hope you like it xx
