Inspired butterfly paper

This card uses the die and stamp set from Papertrey Ink.

I saw this butterfly paper at Hobby Lobby. It had so many colors that I just had to buy one sheet and see what I could do. I made seven cards from one 12 X 12 sheet of paper. The colors matched Bermuda bay, soft suede, apricot appeal, green galore and pink passion. I tried to come up with different and simple layouts. Hope you enjoy. - Heidi

These two cards use a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

This card uses a butterfly die from Quickutz.

Masculine cards without stamping!

When I was at the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Milwaukee last weekend I saw this paper. It is from Graphic 45 in the A Proper Gentleman Collection. There are 18 different cars on one sheet of paper so I cut out each car and made 18 cards. -Heidi

My very own cards!

My friend Letty sent me a card made from the above embossed background. It is aqua mist paper from Papertrey Ink. I paired it with sage shadow ink and bermuda bay paper and ink. These are much more stunning IRL. Those three colors sing together. - Heidi

Another CASED beauty

I loved this card so much that I had to remake it as an A6 size card. I made it bigger and then added some ribbon. I had to make other color versions - see below. Greenhouse garden is an awesome set! - Heidi

Some CASED cards

I added the musical embossing folder from Cuttlebug to the background of this card to jazz it up a bit - no pun intended!

I love that the greenhouse garden flowers look like lemons, limes or oranges!

All of these cards were CASED from Splitcoast or Stampin' Connection. They were all so beautiful that I had to do it. - Heidi

Motoring with Stampin' Up's motorcycle

The above motorcycle card is an A6 card. I ran some heavy duty aluminum foil through the diamond plate Cuttlebug folder. I folded some aluminum foil and punched it with the EK Success chain punch. The card below uses the cog punch from Stampin' Up as well as a texture plate from SU. - Heidi

Two different cards

Sorry about the crooked picture. I was playing with some new punches and dies and came up with this card. Crushed Curry will be gone soon and I want to use it up - I am not a yellow person.

The card below would be perfect for a cookout invitation or BBQ. The other day we got food from Burger King and the bag had this burger on both sides. It is a cool graphic and I couldn't throw it away! Have a dry and sunny day. -Heidi

Mojo 137

I love the button tree using SU's branch out! This is for Mojo Monday 137 challenge. That strip of paper is a paint chip from Home Depot! This is a 5 X 7 card because it needed to be bigger to fit the design on it. -Heidi
