Watercolor Wings with Sweet Sugarplum

My apologies for not having a post for Sunday (which I make and schedule for midnight Saturday).  On Friday I tripped over my own feet (I'm blaming the new tennies I had on) and landed flat on the ground.  Thankfully it was inside and on carpet, although there was NO padding under the industrial grade carpet.  Ugh!  Knocked the wind right out of me.  Friday wasn't too bad, but on Saturday, I was looking for the driver of the bus that ran over me.  Every muscle hurt and making cards was the last thing I could muster.

Sunday was much better so I was able to create and prepare two of my class in the mail projects for some stampers in Southern Arizona.  Here is one of them for today's post.



Recipe:  Sweet Sugarplum base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Designer Series Paper - 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" (Blooms and Bliss)
Whisper White Mat - 3 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Vellum - 5 5/8" x 2" then punched with the Banner Triple Punch on each end
Bold Butterfly Thinlits - small plain outline and medium detailed 
Duet Banner Punch
Rhinestone Basic Jewels - strip of five



The small butterfly is stamped only with Sweet Sugarplum.  For the solid stamp I inked it up with Sweet Sugarplum and then stamped off once, then the detailed stamp I used it fully inked.  I popped up the matted layer as well as the butterflies and sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.

    1. Thank you Chris. I actually took the concept for this card from the catalog, except I didn't like the color or the dots they used, so I changed it up to DSP and went with my favorite new in-color. Good choice I think!
