Spotlight Butterfly and Summer Kick Off!

Catherine Projects

spotlight butterfly

I've had this card for a while…since the beginning of April in fact!  It was one of the cards that we had as a make and take at StampNation LIVE!  Kristie designed it and blew everyone away.  What a GREAT way to use this technique.

In order to get this effect, stamp two butterflies (be sure to use a stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement) on the same size cardstock and color one of them in.  This one will go on top.

Punch holes through the colored piece using different sizes of circle punches and adhere it to the all white butterfly.  Amazing effect, don't you think?

You can learn more about the fun we had at StampNation LIVE here, and stay tuned later this year for details on our next one.

Summer Kick Off Party at StampNation

In the meantime, we will be hosting a virtual event at StampNation beginning June 21, the first official day of summer!

Past StampNation events have been awesome, you are going to want to be included for this one, trust me!  Members have so much fun and creativity goes through the roof.

All week long, we will be celebrating with different summer themed challenges and I've filmed special videos for each challenge.  You can see teensy little snippets of the projects above.

You will be inspired, and you will learn so much during the Summer Kick-off Party!  If you haven't joined us yet, NOW is the time!
