I love the Kaleidoscope papers that you can see here and I adore the Butterfly Prints stamp set! You can do so many lovely things with these butterflies! And to make the set even more versatile there is a matching Butterfly punch!!!! So here I have stamped the butterfly image and cut it out then punched a butterfly image from Pixie Pink card to place behind the cut out image. The cutout was glued only at the middle so as the wings can be bent up to give a 3D look to the card. The body is a thin strip of Summer Sun card wrapped around the butterfly and glued underneath. The saying included in the set is also very sweet.
Coloured card used here were Pixie Pink, Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. The ink is Pixie Pink. The extra stamping on the pink band is done with Boho Backgrounds from the main catalogue.
I loved this design and the paper so much I made a number of them using a variety of the papers as backgrounds. I'm sure you will love this set and papers as much as I do!
To see them visit my webpage www.createwithjanine.stampinup.net tomorrow to view the Summer Mini Catalogue.
Check out the Circle Scissors on the back inside page - such a terrific tool for cutting perfect circles!

The stamp set is Holiday Lineup. The images were stamped in Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Rose Red and More Mustard. They were punched out using the 1 1/4 inch square punch and mounted on Basic black card strip which has had the edges punched using the spiral punch. The background is from Snow Swirled and the message is from Many Merry Messages.
You could add a bit of glitter or Crystal Effects to Rudolph's nose if you like.

The stamp set used was Bird On a Branch. Colours are Night of Navy, Basic Grey and Pretty in Pink.
Must try it again and try and do the image better justice in the way I mount it up.
Thanks for looking!

I've been busy doing workshops and haven't done many new projects lately - so I thought I would show you what we are doing in my Stampin'Up! workshops this month.
I love these Christmas gift tags made using the set Winter Post. I got the idea from a tag I saw on Stampin'Addicts and I have used similar colours but a different stamp set. I've deleted the email and so I am sorry I can't give credit to the lovely person who created the layout/colour way. Thankyou for your idea.
Colours are Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Close to Cocoa for card and Real Red and Close to Cocoa for ink. Extras are Designer label punch, double slot punch and Whisper White grosgrain ribbon.
I didn't have a To/From stamp believe it or not so bought this set to get one and then loved how the images stamped up to create these tags. My customers have loved making them too!

To create the card I stamped Choo Choo using markers to ink the stamps, onto Stampin'Up! paper vellum. The greeting is also from the mini catalogue and is one of the new single stamps Stampin'Up! are producing. The vellum was overlayed onto WhisperWhite card on which I had wheeled the Right on Track wheel and the Funky Forest wheel. I sponged some Bashful Blue ink on for the sky. It is all finished off with Chocloate Chip taffeta ribbon.
Thanks for looking!
