Pretty Butterfly Layers

Today I'm featuring a beautiful layered card using the Abstract Impressions bundle.


Edited to add: this card fits perfectly into this week's Global Design Project sketch challenge. You can click the sketch below to play along with #GDP174 if you like. What a coincidence - I hopped on the page to see what this week's challenge, and the sketch was much like my card!

Now trust me when I tell you that this card is much simpler to put together than it looks. There are a lot of details that really make this card pop, but they come together pretty quickly. You can watch my video tutorial below. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel while you're there!


See! That was pretty simple, right?!?



The Abstract Impressions bundle is quickly becoming my favorite from the Annual Catalog. We had some super cold weather here this weekend - I'm talking 20 BELOW ZERO! The cold snap gave me lots of time to stamp, and I found myself making card after card with this fun stamp set.

Replay: Facebook Live 1.23.19

I have so much fun stamping LIVE! For those of you that missed it, don't fret...I've got a replay for you in my blog today!

I had a blast making some adorable miniature valentine's. I'm in love with those cute critters from the Hey Love stamp set.


That skunk is literally stinkin' cute!

Mini Valentine's card dimensions:
  • Crumb Cake - 6" x 3", score/fold @ 3"
  • Lovely Lipstick foil paper - 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • Whisper White - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

These cards sure are eye catching, aren't they? I love the bright Lipstick foil paper against the neutral tone of Crumb Cake. I was inspired by Stampin' Pretty for the layout. Did you know that the Lipstick Foil paper is FREE? Yup, it's one of the freebies during Sale-A-Bration. It comes in a package with Grapefruit Grove foil paper. Beautiful!

Next I did some more #simplestamping on a bright and fun birthday card!


I used a piece of DSP from the Share What You Love DSP in the big annual catalog. The ink colors were easy to choose just by looking at the tag to see what colors match the DSP. What an easy way to coordinate your colors!


Celebrate Your Day card dimensions:
  • Grapefruit Grove - 5" x 7", score/fold at 3 1/2"
  • Share What You Love DSP - 3 1/4" x 3"
  • Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • Vellum - 2 3/4" x 1"
Finally, I did some layering on this gorgeous all-occasions card. My inspiration for this card was the color palette from this week's Global Design Project. You can check out the other card I made with this color palette HERE.


I used a really simple watercolor technique called "smooching" for that pop of Soft Seafoam on the card front. I know I'll be using the technique a lot for an extra pop of color when I feel like something is missing from my card.


Wishing You a Lovely Day card dimensions
  • Whisper White Thick - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score/fold at 4 1/4"
  • Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Window Sheet for smooching technique
