Clean & Simple

Following the butterfly theme this week is another
card I found on Pinterest.  
I just love the simplicity of it.
I used textured card stock and an embossing folder 
to add an elegance to the butterfly.  
So pretty.

My Interest in Pinterest

I resist new computer sites as long as possible.
It took me years to check out Facebook.
I go kicking and screaming.
But, I have changed my mind.
I have caught the Pinterest craze.
I have found so many pretty cards, recipes, and ideas there.
This card is just one of them.  
It uses the Butterfly Punch with card stock,
designer paper and Window sheets.
The Window Sheets are then run through the 
Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
in the Big Shot.

This pretty card was sent to me 
from fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, 
Deana Schultz,
and I have to say it made my day. 
Don't you just love finding a card from a 
friend in amongst all those pesky bills 
and junk mail?
Thanks, Deana.  I love it.

Quilling and Flowers

 (Click on photo for a closer look.)
It's not very often you can get a one-on-one 
tutorial with a
Stampin' Up! Artisan Award Winner, 
but I did!
Heather Klump, of Downstairs Designs,
recently showed me how to make that little
flower using a quilling tool.  
You start with a circle and carefully cut around it
until you have a spiral. 
Then wrap it around the tool until you have 
a flower shape as on this 2 x 2 card, above.  
Attach the center to another circle with a
Glue Dot and place a little pearl inside.  
   Just plain sweetness.
