Tri-Fold Twist Butterfly Gala

I am totally in love with this Fun Fold!  This was actually the second card I made using this fold, but I have others to share with you.

This card uses the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating punch, along with the Flower For All Seasons DSP.

When the card is folded, it is in a vertical (portrait) orientation.

But, when you open it, it twists into a horizontal (landscape) orientation.  Isn’t that too cool!

Stay tuned for more cards made with this fun twist!

Glimmer Butterfly Wishes

Who’s ready for Spring?  I know I am!

I’m always happy to see blossoms on the trees and the butterflies that are drawn to them.  I’m not sure if you can see it well, but this sweet card has a special glimmer butterfly.  The butterfly is stamped in Jet Black StazOn onto a Window Sheet, colored on the back with Stampin’ Blends and punched with the coordinating punch.  It’s then mounted on top of a butterfly punched from Glimmer Paper.  It’s only attached in the body of the butterfly, so the wings are free.

Butterfly Gala Gift Basket

I love it when I can recycle or up-cycle everyday items that are normally thrown in the trash!

At Stamp Club this month, I asked everyone to bring an empty toilet paper roll.  We used them to make these little hanging gift baskets.  Aren’t they just the cutest?

We used the Gingham Gala paper from the Occasions Catalog.  This paper is on the retiring list, so if you don’t have it, get it quick!  I love this paper.  It comes in five colors, including Lemon Lime Twist, which we didn’t use for this project.  It has larger checks on one side and smaller checks on the other side.  I used the side with larger squares for this project.

After covering the tube with paper, we squeezed the bottom flat and stapled it, then covered the staples with “ribbon” made from matching cardstock and the ribbon border punch.

Stay tuned for cards made with the leftover paper!
