The new Watercolor Wings stamp set is so pretty and so much fun to use! There are two sizes of butterflies with up to three layers each. But you don't have to use all three layers, so there are multiple ways you can stamp the images. And there are also coordinating Framelits to make cutting them out simple. Both the Bold Butterfly Framelits and the Butterflies Thinlits coordinate with this set.
These cards are what I made for our July Upscale Swap. I made a variety of colors - but I still can't pick a favorite. I love them all!
This card uses Delightful Dijon and So Saffron.
This is Lost Lagoon and Mint Macaron.
The colors on this one are Watermelon Wonder and Blushing Bride.
But it's not only the outside of the cards that looks great - there's a surprise inside! I saw a wonderful tutorial from Julie Davison on her "Half Circle Pop-Up Card". So I decided to make my card like hers. So much fun - and what a great surprise for the recipient when they open this card!
Soft Suede and Tip Top Taupe were used on this card.
And here's the inside...
And here is the butterfly suspended in the center. Sorry for the blurry photo. No matter how many times I tried, I couldn't get a clear picture of this angle.

Hey all! I'm back from our family vacation in Minnesota. Thirteen hours in the car one-way was a little rough, but luckily I am able to sleep in the car (no motor home for us)... so I took advantage of that!
I wasn't able to blog while I was away, so I'm playing some catch-up. I have a bunch of cards from the Upscale Swap group's June swap.

Candy Leggett's card was from her Christmas in July stamp club.
When opened, you can see that it has a fun fold. Lots of Joy was used for the greeting.

I hope you're inspired by these cards. I'll be back in a day or so with the rest of the bunch. Until then...
