Sew butterflies?

Once again things at Buckaroo's house inspire me to create. I saw a card on the end table at his house and knew I had to recreate the color scheme from it. I desperately need a light box because this picture does my card no justice! The butterflies are the embosslit from SU and a die from Quikutz. They are cut from Whisper White cardstock. The background and leaves are cut from Wild Wasabi cardstock. The flowers are stamped in Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist (markers) on So Saffron and cut out by hand. Ugh, that was a LOT of cutting. It really is very stunning IRL!

The above card uses the Sew Suite stamp set from Stampin' Up. It was inspired by this card. As always I changed things around a bit. I couldn't stamp straight on the seam binding so I gave up and stamped on Pear Pizzazz. What else is Smooch for besides making the metal end of a tape measure?! It looks authentically metal. - Heidi


  1. I bet those flowers were a lot of cutting, but stunning results! I just got this set

  2. Can't believe that you cut out those flowers! So perfect! Lovely card!
    PS I like your bee- I think he looks very authentic!
