SU Elegant Butterfly Punch

SU Teeny Tiny Wishes with Papillon Potpourri

Can you believe I had ONE tag with one of the colors for Dynamic Duos this week?


I checked my neatly filed retired stash (that is the only neatly filed thing in the stamp center these days!) and found one 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch piece of Pale Plum. Then I remembered years ago I picked up some tags off a demo on ebay…I found them, and there was the Pale Plum. So I had my design with a tag picked for me!

SU Papillon Potpourri

Here’s a monochromatic card using the SU Papillon Potpourri stamp set which is bundled with the Bitty Butterfly Punch at a 15% discount through September 30.  I was inspired by Lori Tecler’s card at the MUSE Card Club #32 this week. Lori had a panel with a “thinking of you” sentiment with butterflies surrounded by a blue background.  I  love all the different hues  of blue that SU carries that lend themsleves to various moods and messages I want to convey with my cards. SU Marina Mist is what I think of when I think of BLUE- a warm and cool color of blue all rolled into one! What is your favorite blue?

SU Papillon Parade Blue

The larger butterfly is punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the smaller one is punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Think how versatile these two punches are with one great stamp set!

SU Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches

A new stamping friend of mine had knee surgery this past week, and I wanted to send her a card to wish her well during her recovery. I remembered that she loved butterflies  so I got out my two SU butterfly punches to make her card. I used the colors from Colour Q # 179 and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches # 76 this week. I hope it cheers her when she gets it in the mail;)
