2012 Artisan Award Entry #1 - Butterfly just for You

This was another one of my entries for the Stampin' Up! Artisan Award. Even though I did not win it was displayed on one of the boards at convention in Salt Lake City this year. I love the fold of this card. I used the Edgelits die to cut the the top of the card diagionally and then used the coordinating embossing folder to embellish the edge. It's kind of hard to see, for the large butterfly I cut one from card stock and layered another one that I cut from a window sheet that I embossed with the hearts EBF on top before I added the flower. A little sparkle is added around the edge of the butterfly with Dazzling Details.


There is a little sleeve that holds the card together.

Need For Speed


For this card I stamped the car with black StazOn ink and colored it using my blender pen. You can't tell from the picture but it's actually a spinner card. I punched out an opening using the word window punch. Then I took a penny, put a dimensional in the middle and another penny on top. I placed the pennies in the slot and glued the car on top so it slides back and forth in the opening (for instructions on how to make a spinner card see this link at Splitcoaststampers).

For the background I glued some regular household aluminum foil to white card stock and ran it throughout the Big Shot.

The envelope has been embellished with aluminum foil and a stamped car.
