Facebook Live - 6/9/21 - Floating and Fluttering

 Tonight I played with some new stamps and some retiring stamps.  This gorgeous Floating and Fluttering butterfly stamp set is going away at the end of the month! I paired it with the Natural Textures hostess set and the One Happy Family sentiment set  This is the card I made tonight.

I made this card using the Floating and Fluttering during Sale-a-bration so it has some retired paper on it.  But you could substitute any paper for it and change the colors.

Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle Group Blog Hop: Sweet as a Peach


This month on the Creative Stampers blog hop we are sharing our favorite new products from the new annual catalog.  It was hard to pick out just one thing, there are so many fabulous new products.  I chose the Sweet as a Peach suite.  The Designer Series paper that goes with it is so beautiful. 
 For this project I decided to create something without using the peaches.  I also used the Scalloped Contour dies to die cut the Basic White piece that I stamped on and the scalloped piece peeking out behind the Designer Series Paper. The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and the flowers are stamped in Calypso Coral.  The stamp and the die for the flowers do all three at once.  That makes it much easier to create beautiful flowers. I added a few of the Artistry Blooms sequins for a little bling.

Want to see more projects using new products? Here's a sneak peek of my project in the Creative Stampers Tutorial. You can get this tutorial by placing an order with me, purchasing it for $22 or for free by being a part of my team.
